Carried up into the Trinity

I think the cry of Jesus, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' indicated that God in His great love was willing to allow the division which came between God and man in the Fall to be carried up into the Trinity itself and there conquered.
--Francis Schaeffer, 1970s letter, quoted in Letters of Francis Schaeffer (ed. Lane Dennis; Crossway, 1985), 127
