"So," they say, "nobody's perfect!"
But the Vinedresser won't buy that.
Given the opportunity, He will trim the unproductive suckers and shape the branches so each one will bask in Sonlight.

      On viewing the linked computer graphic, I posted my reaction as follows: "Beautiful execution. Wish I could do stuff like this. My view of God isn't three of anything, but one composed of three distinct elements. In high school math I saw God in set theory: a universal set composed of three unique, but inseparable, subsets. God wouldn't be God without the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in perfect union. Separate them, and you have three gods."
      God's essential nature means as much to us as our essential nature does to the bacteria digesting food in our stomachs. We have one slight disadvantage over them, we like to hypothesize as to God's nature, reducing Him to a Super Humanoid in the process.
      God isn't human--not even close. While He created Man in His image, most of that resemblance departed with our innocence. Now, the only way we can resemble God is to accept His sanctifying grace and consecrate ourselves to His high purposes. The process isn't easy, but much more than worth the trouble.
