Social Construction

Social Construction May 6, 2014

Reader David Gornoski writes:

I had a lot of fun with the social construct theory professors. I say, Yes, Language does construct reality. “In the beginning was the Word.” God spoke and now we exist. And yes, reality is socially constructed. A society in one being, the Trinity created it. I took it further and said that is why even communication is trinitarian itself. 1st, 2nd and 3rd person. Without these, humans cannot have fully human reality. (Look at the cases of feral children!) I-The Father, send You-The Son, through the Spirit indwelling in He/She-Man. So, singular 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person communication is trinitarian. We can see a similar pattern in the plural. We-The Trinity (‘Let us make man in our image”) make covenant with You all (Ekklesia) to transform Them (the world).
