Good and Evil; Commoner's Views.

The safe bet is always to assume one is bordering on heresy whenever one speaks about the trinity :P

God sacrificed in the sense that the sacrifice was not only Calvary, but the incarnation itself (remember that verse of Philippians that says basically that Jesus, being in the form of God, emptied Himself and took the form of a slave).

About the trinity vs. the Jews (see what I did there?): I remember reading Maimonides talking how in general the thinker, the process of thinking and the thought are distinct necessary things for intellection (basic Aristotle). And yet, because God is simple, these must be one “thing” in God. This is basically how St. Augustine and St. Thomas deal with the trinity. What I would ask the Jews and Mohammedans is, does your God think? Plotinus, of course, would answer “no”, he just stands there. Allah, of course, is a petty demiurge. I don't see how the Jews who supposedly hold to the Old Testament God would adopt a neo-platonic metaphysics and deny the personality of God, so to speak.
