I was asking him to explain a passage in the Quran, and he did so. It has already been extensively covered in previous threads that the terms Father and Son are relative human terms to explain the Divine mystery. Getting locked into the literal terms is counterproductive so far as I'm concerned. But that's just me. It's also true that although the term Father was used occasionally in the old Testament, it was Christ himself who bought the term to front and centre in his teaching, imo. It has all been discussed and dissected to exhaustion in several previous threads. I don't see it matters that Isaac Newton was an Arian. There have always been some Arians. It's irrelevant. Stephen Hawking, who later occupied Newton's Lucasian chair of mathematics at Cambridge, was an atheist and Max Plank, who originated quantum theory, was a Lutheran Christian.
