In the history of the Church an inordinate amount of bloodshed was associated with the doctrine of the Trinity, especially the Deity of Jesus. The rejection from the canon of the Gospel of Thomas may have been an important factor in the promulgation of the doctrine.
Thomas is about Theosis. (For more on this subject look at this on Jon's website. (Jon has a link that renewed my faith in Methodism [not so much in practice as in theology]).) Jon also cited a Catholic paper re divinization.
Any comments on this subject will be appreciated.
