Which is why Christians should not be quite so interested in how the Early Church conducted Itself

As Derrida shows, it is axiomatic for Plato that supplementarity is degenerative: that is, anything added to an original, anything flowing from a source, is “worse” than the source itself, precisely because it has moved away from the source…Such a metaphysics cannot support a comic view of history, much less deep comedy…

For trinitarian theology, the “Second” is fully equal to and is in fact the glory of the “First”.

– Peter J. Leithart, Deep Comedy, p. xiii – xiv.
