  1. Thanks, James. I think the view you share here is gaining traction. I hear it almost as frequently now as the one about God having to turn his back. I think you are correct. The only evidence the other way would be arguing from the standpoint of Jesus becoming a curse for us (Gal. 3:13). But it is a far jump, IMO, to go from that verse to say that there was some separation in the Trinity, God turned his back, etc. Your application here that God does not turn away from us, even in our sin, is very good.

    • Thanks for adding your thoughts, David. Galatians 3:13 is def. a far cry from saying there was a separation in the trinity. Glad you mentioned that.
