Considerations on the explications of the doctrine of the Trinity by Dr. Wallis, Dr. Sherlock, Dr. S-th, Dr. Cudworth, and Mr. Hooker: as also on the account given by those that say the Trinity is an unconceivable and inexplicable mystery. First, I have no distinctive doctrine of the Trinity.

My exposition of the Trinity which follows is simply an outline of what I consider to be the historic, orthodox doctrine of the Trinity as articulated in the Nicene Creed.

I know absolutely nothing about a so-called “evangelical egalitarian doctrine of the Trinity.”. 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 Ontological Trinity is the teaching that each member of the Godhead, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, possesses the same divine nature.

In other words, the Father has the quality of being God as does the Son and the Holy Spirit. This is important because only God has this divine Considerations on the explications of the doctrine of the Trinity book.

First, the doctrine of the Trinity was a widely held belief prior to the Council of Nicea. Since baptism is a universal act of obedience for new believers, it is significant that Jesus uses Trinitarian language in Matthew when He gives the Great Commission to make disciples and baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Chapter 7 Is the doctrine of the Trinity a biblical concept. Now we come to the really big challenge – the Trinity. 1 The vast majority of Christians believe that God is composed of three persons, all co-equal and co-eternal.

This is considered to be so basic to Christianity that any who deny this doctrine are by definition not Christian. Considerations on the explications of the doctrine of the Trinity: occasioned by four sermons preached by His Grace the Lord Arch-Bishop of Canterbury: a sermon preached by the Lord-Bishop of Worchester: a discourse by the Lord-Bishop of Salisbury: a sheet by a very learned hand containing twenty eight propositions: a treatise by an eminent dissenting minister, being a calm discourse concerning.

The Trinity clarifies the meaning of the “glory of God”. One of the most respected summaries of Christian doctrine, the Westminster Shorter Catechism, asserts “man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever.”. When some Christians hear that, their skin crawls. 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 consciousness; God is only one What, but three Whos. Through the centuries the doctrine has been violently attacked and robustly defended.

3 A doctrine then is nothing else than the facts almighty God made known to human beings by revelation, facts about God in Himself, or about God in his relations with His creatures. 4 According to Marie Fargues a mystery is a truth which we must believe because God has made it known to us, but which we.

Simon Peter answered, “You are the [Messiah], the Son of the living God.” Matthew NIV. The Son – Perhaps the single distinguishing doctrine of Christianity is the Trinity. No other monotheistic religion embraces this claim, i.e. that God exists as three persons in one being. A letter to the author of a book, entitled, Considerations on the explications of the doctrine of the Trinity.

The doctrine of the Trinity is hard to teach, because there are so many ancient heresies to guard against and because, well it’s complicated. But, the Scriptures present God as triune.

That means we need to teach about Him. We need to teach Christians to know Him and love Him as He is; and He’s triune.

We better understand God when we better understand the Trinity. At the very heart of Christian belief is a concept called the Trinity. It’s so central that one of the greatest theologians of the 20th century, Karl Barth, said, “Trinity is the Christian name for God.” God is a Trinity of three in one, co-equal and yet distinct, called the.

This book gets off to a slow start, but is well worth the time in the end. Moltmann comes to some breathtaking and fantastic conclusions concerning the relationship between the trinity and political theology.

What were the implications of the Council of Toledo for the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Stephen J.

In any discussion of Christian theology, it is virtually axiomatic that the doctrine of the trinity is the foundational doctrine which distinguishes a peculiarly Christian theology from the theology of any other religion, especially of the other great monotheistic religions.

Likewise, in any discussion of Christian missiology, it is. The doctrine of the Trinity asserts that God has three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

The Unipersonality of Christ a Mystery. The Lutheran Doctrine of the Communication of Attributes. There is a perennial danger of retrojecting a developed philosophical doctrine of the Trinity into texts operating within a very different horizon.

For instance, from the early church, Christian thinkers have seen a shadowy witness to the Trinity in the “let us” of Genesis "Even many Christians find the Trinity confusing, but Delighting in the Trinity is the clearest and best written explanation I've ever read." (Marvin Olasky, World Magazine, J ) "Michael Reeves's Delighting in the Trinity is an enjoyable introduction to the doctrine of the Trinity Reviews:   The doctrine of the Trinity has come under increasing attack over recent years from a variety of groups.

Some of these groups (such as Muslims and Jehovah’s witnesses) deny that this doctrine is even found in Scripture. They are often quick to point out that the word “trinity” is to be found nowhere in the Bible.

This is correct. The ‘doctrine of Monotheism’ has been very precisely and concisely enunciated in the Holy Quran, in chapter numberas noted above. Its proofs are numerous and are spread over the pages of the Holy Quran. The same cannot be said about the ‘doctrine of Trinity’ and Bible, as we shall presently see.

This theme of participation in the life of the Trinity is also preserved in the writings of the Fathers of the Church. In the East, Origen of Alexandria (c. ) described man’s union with God as a ‘commingling’ of humanity with divinity (Book of Prayer, 10, 2).

For Athanasius (c. ) in his defence of Christ’s divinity, the. All gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

My work will focus on his nuanced perceptions of the Trinity. It will not imply. Nontrinitarianism is a form of Christianity that rejects the mainstream Christian doctrine of the Trinity—the teaching that God is three distinct hypostases or persons who are coeternal, coequal, and indivisibly united in one being, or essence (from the Greek ousia).Certain religious groups that emerged during the Protestant Reformation have historically been known as antitrinitarian.
