found the biblical doctrine of the Trinity hard to understand. The doctrine of the Trinity recognizes that God is one God, co-existing in three distinct Persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In our material existence, the concept that God is One God, yet exists as three distinct persons, is foreign to us. However, the doctrine of the Godhead.   modalism (n): the theological doctrine that the members of the Trinity are not three distinct persons but rather three modes or forms of activity (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) under which God manifests himself (See 'modalism', Merriam-Webster, , []).

Humility: As the persons of the Trinity seek the glory of each other, so we should seek the interests of others above our own: Phil. ; John Sonship: We are "sons of God" as we are united with the Son of God by the work of the Holy Spirit and the adoption of the Father: John ; .   So in a few hundred words let me try to explain what the doctrine of the Trinity means, where it is found in the Bible, and why it matters. First, what does the doctrine mean? The doctrine of the Trinity can be summarized in seven statements. (1) There is only one God. (2) The Father is God. (3) The Son is God. (4) The Holy Spirit is God.

In rude misconception or wilful perversion, Mohammed seems to have understood the Christian doctrine of the trinity to be a trinity of Father, Mary, and Jesus. The Holy Spirit is identified with Gabriel. "God is only one God! Far be it from his glory that he should have a son!" Sura 4, ver. ; comp. 5, ver.   The origin of the doctrine of the Trinity is the Bible, although the word Trinity is not used in the Bible. As all orthodox Christians agree, the doctrine of the Trinity holds that God is one essence but three Persons; God has one nature, but three centers of .

A second defence of the propositions, by which the doctrine of the holy Trinity is so explained, according to the ancient fathers, as to speak it not contradictory to natural reasons: in answer to a Socinian manuscript, in a letter to a friend: Together, with a third defence of those propositions, in answer to the newly published reflexions: contained in a pamphlet, entituled: Pages: The Doctrine of the Holy Trinity Explained and Vindicated The doctrine of the blessed Trinity may be considered two ways: First, In respect unto the revelation and proposal of it in the Scripture, to direct us unto the author, object, and end of our faith, in our worship and obedience.

We confess and we believe that the holy and indescribable Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is one only God in His nature, a single substance, a single nature, a single majesty and power. We acknowledge Trinity in the distinction of persons; we profess Unity because of the nature or substance.

The doctrine of the Trinity as taught by most Churches states that there are three co-equal (equal in every respect), co-eternal (the same age), omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful) gods, who are not three gods, but one god.

The Father reveals the Son, the Son reveals the Father, and the Father and the Son are revealed by the Holy Spirit. Though the mystery is difficult to comprehend, and requires an act of faith to believe it, we should be thankful that we live in an age where we have concrete doctrine (or teaching) on the Trinity.

There was a time when many theologians argued over what we should or should not. The doctrine of the Trinity is considered to be one of the central Christian affirmations about God. It is rooted in the fact that God came to meet Christians in a threefold figure: (1) as Creator, Lord of the history of salvation, Father, and Judge, as revealed in the Old Testament; (2) as the Lord who, in the incarnated figure of Jesus Christ, lived among human beings and was present in their midst as the “Resurrected.

It is this definition that I am going to assume in the discussion that follows. Succinctly, then, the doctrine of the Trinity may be defined thusly: Within the one being or essence that is God, there exists three co-equal and co-divine distinct persons — namely the Father, Son and Holy Spirit — who share that essence fully and completely.

If the doctrine of the Trinity is not true, it would seem to be blasphemy to speak so freely of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in one and the same breath. The Trinity Examined In this section of the message I want to examine some of the common questions about the Trinity.

Some use math to explain the Holy Trinity. We cannot think of the Holy Trinity as a sum of three parts (1 + 1 + 1 = 3), but instead, show how each part multiplies the others to form a wonderful whole (1 x 1 x 1 = 1). Using the multiplication model, we show that the three form a union, thus why people have moved to calling it the Tri-Unity.

Tertullian's concern was a doctrine known as "modalism." This is the view that there is only one person in the Godhead. That one, individual God fills the role of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in much the same way that one actor can play three roles in the same movie.

While the core aspects of the Trinity are clearly presented in God’s Word, some of the side issues are not as explicitly clear. The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God—but there is only one God.

That is the biblical doctrine of the Trinity. Beyond that, the issues are, to a certain extent, debatable and non-essential.

It’s easy to turn doctrinal discussions into strictly intellectual affairs, but as Dr. Fred Sanders teaches in The Triune God course, we need to do so “in a way that enlists the reader’s strict and holy attention for what is essentially a spiritual exercise.”. And from these two students of the doctrine of the Trinity, we learn that Pastor Keller's divine dance isn't simply a weak analogy.

Rather, it is Keller's paradigm for the relationship within the Trinity, as well as man's relation to the Trinity in redemption. While the word Trinity is not in the Bible, the substance of the doctrine is definitely biblical. The doctrine is simply a formal way of systematizing the following six propositions, which may be viewed as premises of the doctrine: 1.

There is one God (i.e., one proper object of religious devotion). In the Catechism of the Catholic Church we are taught that the central mystery of the faith, the fundamental and essential teaching of Christianity, is the doctrine of the Trinity ().This is the revelation that our Almighty Creator is one God in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

This is a mystery inaccessible to our finite human reason alone, but God has lovingly. Certain propositions by which the doctrine of the Holy Trinity is so explained: according to the ancient fathers, as to speak it not contradictory to natural reason.

By the Right Reverend Father in God, Edward, late Lord Bishop of Gloucester. Defending the Trinity. By James M. Rochford. The word “Trinity” is not used in the Bible, but the concept is certainly present throughout Scripture. The term “Trinity” was not used until Tertullian (AD ), who used the Latin word trinitas (pronounced TRIN-eeh-toss) to describe the three persons of the Trinity.

The doctrine of the Trinity is not illogical, but it is difficult to wrap. In the latter part of the twentieth century the doctrine of the Trinity captured the attention of theologians more than any other doctrine.1 At no time in history since the theologically stormy days of the fourth century has there been so much discussion on this topic, and the discussion does not seem to be ending.

Books on the Trinity by Protestant, Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox theologians. The best section in the Bible to easily understand the Trinity is the book of 1 John.

This book is loaded with verses which flow together so nicely to show the holy Trinity. In the very first verse of this letter, John establishes the humanity of the Lord Jesus.

He makes it very clear that the Lord was human. Trinity in Adventism A belief in the divinity, personality, unity, and equality of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit does not itself make one a Trinitarian, for even non-trinitarians can accept the existence of more than one divine Person.

As we understand more and more what the Bible reveals to us about the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, the more practical this doctrine becomes.

Here are five ways the doctrine of the Trinity is surprisingly practical, all drawn from Peter Leithart’s Mobile Ed course on Trinitarian theology and his book Traces of the Trinity.Can the trinity be explained as such a man is a father, a son and a husband, i.e.

one person with three distinct roles? Please give simple examples such as this followed by any pertinent scripture. Two of the most difficult doctrines in the Bible are the two-fold nature of Jesus Christ as both God and man and the doctrine of the trinity of.
