The Doctrine of The Trinity

The explanation of the Trinity Doctrine is a challenge to many – not only to the receiver of the message as to the individual explaining the Trinity. This is partly due to the fact that we have One True God, manifesting himself in three. Let me explain – we have “God the Father”, “God the Son” and “God the Holy Spirit”.  The Three listed make up the Trinity of God – each one being individual, all three being one!

Below is an illustration that will help explain the Trinity. It is an explanation from a university classroom comparing the Trinity makeup – to that like a book:

“For example, a book has length, width, and thickness. The length is not the book’s width, the width is not the book’s thickness. These three dimensions can be described separately, yet they are connected together. If you remove one dimension, you are no longer describing a book. In the same way, the Godhead has three separate members that are connected together, and if you try to remove one, you no longer have the Godhead.”

Hopefully, the above illustration set your foundation of the Trinity? if not, God will reveal this understanding as you continue to read his Word and seek his ways on a daily basis!  Remember our ways and our thoughts, are not God’s ways nor thoughts as it clearly states in the Bible in Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (KJV)

Here at Spirit Life Church International, our belief in the Trinity is as follows:

1) There is One God, from Him exists three distinct yet equal Persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

2) The full Deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus was of two distinct natures, perfect Deity and perfect humanity in the one Person.

3) The full Deity and full personality of the Holy Spirit and His work as the comforter and revealer of truth.

 

Augustine said:

“The person who tries to understand the Trinity will lose his mind.

The person who tries to deny the Trinity will lose his soul.”

One Response to The Doctrine of The Trinity

  1. Judson Alleyne says:

    I am a first time visitor to this site and just read the doctrine of the trinity. As it would happen, I next read the doctrine of God and saw the passage below. Why would the reference to “the only true God” be distinct from “and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent” if the two are one.

    Christians recognize and accept one True and Holy God! Knowledge of God is gained by studying daily his revelation, his Word, with Prayer and experiencing him personally as stated in John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (KJV)

    Is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit co-equals, or is the Father greater than the Son.

    I enjoy your program and look forward to hearing from you.

    God bless,
    Judson
