Change and Preservation in the Same Current
"In my understanding of Fox, the word Christ is here a pointer, and it points toward God, not toward the many meanings and connotations that Christ has gathered over the past couple of Thousand years." Unlike most Christians, Friends have never been Trinitarians--we've never tried to figure out and write down just how God and Christ and the Holy Spirit are related to one another, or which part has what responsibilities or powers. As Fox himself often pointed out, the word Trinity does not appear in Scripture. So let the word Christ serve as a pointer toward God in Fox's remarkable epiphany that Christ has come to teach his people himself.
