My purpose here is to move away from some of that which causes controversy, and look at one of the core beliefs so fabulously expressed in article 1. The solid monotheism - 'there is but one living and true God' is something that seems to easily get washed away in the sea of liberalism. Islam correctly asserts this truth, and we should express it just as strongly. I fear that the next part seems to often get forgotten in the maize of helpful understanding about God. 'without body parts or passions' reminds us seriously that anthropomorphic understandings of God just will not pass muster. No Anglican should be left with an understanding of God as the kind old man in the sky. 'infinite power, wisdom and goodness' of course leaves is with the question that has confronted every generation, including Job in the Old Testament. In answer to the challenge of theodicy (the problem of evil) we are unshaken in our acceptance of all three, and we accept that we will not always understand now, and we acknowledge that sometimes this requires trust and faith. And we accept that all things have been created and preserved by God, including both the things we can see, and the things we can't see. And having said all that we affirm the absolute conviction of the Church, expressed in all the councils, and profoundly explored by the cappadocian fathers. We believe in the unity of the Oneness of God there be three persons (not in the sense of human persons) all equally God, all equally powerful, all equally eternal, and we names them Father, Gin and Holy Spirit. A absolutely adore the comprehensiveness and the beauty of the language, the theological straightforwardness. It is one of the treasures of our tradition, not that other Christians disagree with it, but because we say it so well.
