What's the subject of this sentence?
Just checking, what's the subject of this sentence? "God suffered in the flesh, and not in his aseity." I believe it is God, but I man be mistaken. The reason I ask is that over on Brad Littlejohn's blog I asserted that the divine nature is neither subject nor object, but that God the Word is. The response I received, claimed that my position was outside the patristic doctrine since, the fathers said "God suffered in his flesh, and not in his aseity." But if I am correct that the subject of that sentence is "God", which in this case must mean God the Word, then the response is wholly irrelevant and not on point.
