Without Conversion, Composition or Confusion

"Without conversion, composition or confusion"

The divine is not changed into the human - therefore no conversion.
The divine and the human do not coalesce so as to form a third entity - thus no composition.
The two natures are not mixed, so there’s no confusion.

I found the words above tucked away in an old email. They help describe Christ as the God-Man. The actual quote (and post title) is taken from The Westminster Confession of Faith in chapter VIII on "Christ the Mediator". And I think the explanation of the quote came from sermon notes I took while listening to Alistair Begg preach on Christ as Prophet, Priest and King at a conference a few years back. I'll try to find the audio to those three messages and post them here.
