[color=darkblue:kmy7a2iv]How about the trinity?
It was known and believed all along, but it developed as the church grew and discussed things like the hypostatic union and the diety of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, Right?
The doctrines on the diety of Jesus and the Holy Spirit then developed along with that, even though all of this was believed by the early church.
It’s just that as the church lives out its relationship with God (as with any relationship) we come to know and understand God better and what the relationship means to us. It doesn’t change the relationship except to deepen it.
