Maximos and the Logoi

St Maximus said that the one LOGOS is the many LOGOI (I am summarizing key parts from his Ambiguum 7). Collectively, the Forms are LOGOI, which is LOGOS, which is the Second Person of the Trinity. The Logos is revealed and multiplied in the Forms (logoi) which are then recapitulated back into the Logos (Ephesians 1:10). The Logos is the interconnecting cause that holds the Forms together. The Logoi, therefore, pre-exist in God.

This is beautiful philosophy, but the only problem:  it's hard to say that the logoi as collective forms died on the cross for my sins.   But on the other hand, this handles Ephesians 1:10 and Col. 1:17 quite nicely.
