immutable or atemporal, as Conciliar Christology calls for, then that individual couldn't turn into something, and therefore couldn't turn into guy. eventually, Pawl addresses the objection that if there's a unmarried Christ then there's a unmarried nature or will in Christ. in spite of the fact that, if that conditional is right, then Conciliar Christology
is fake, because it affirms the antecedent of the conditional to be actual, yet denies the reality of the resultant. Pawl defends Conciliar Christology opposed to those fees, arguing that each one 3 philosophical objections fail to teach Conciliar Christology inconsistent or incoherent.
