Some Thoughts on the Trinity. By TylerR. Mar 18 Trinity. Millard Erickson. A Contemporary Interpretation of the Trinity. It’s a very good book, but probably not the most engaging thing for the “average” Christians to read.
It presupposes a lot of theological training. Erickson’s book is one of the most helpful works on the. THOUGHTS.
ON THE. DOCTRINE OF THE HOLY TRINITY. I BELIEVE that there are beings superior to us, at least in our present state, whom we call Angels. But what I can collect from the Scriptures concerning their nature and powers is very indistinct. I never saw an angel, and therefore am at a loss how to conceive of him.

to a screeching halt while an old crotchety man shuffles up to the pulpit, blows the dust off an enormous leather-bound book. But in order to intimate the Trinity, some things are separately affirmed, the Persons being also each severally named; and yet are not to be understood as though the Thoughts on the Trinity book Persons were excluded, on account of the unity of the same Trinity and the One substance and Godhead of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Readers of Meditations on the Trinity will receive a more accurate view of who God is, and in turn—as Tozer would be quick to point out—offer Him truer worship. Knowing God is the chief end of man, and this book will help readers nearer that goal/5(53). This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is hard to imagine a more influential (and misunderstood!) work on the Trinity.
Its brilliance owes not merely to what Augustine says. Before moving on, it is worth mentioning that the Trinity is implicit throughout the Old Testament. In Gene we find Yahweh coming as a man to speak with Abraham, informing him. Thoughts for Trinity Sunday A little boy came home from church (obviously his mother hadn’t been too!) and said that the Vicar told them God was.
I read this in celebration (and contemplation) of Trinity Sunday. It is short, but there is great richness in the argument. The translation was well done, the textual notes were informative (though they perhaps wouldnt be without an at least basic understanding of Koine/NT Greek), but the typography was a bit odd in terms of spacing (though for the cost of the book and value of insight, I 4/5.
In Catholic theology, we understand the persons of the Blessed Trinity subsisting within the inner life of God to be truly distinct relationally, but not as a matter of essence, or nature.
Each of the three persons in the godhead possesses the same eternal and infinite divine nature; thus, they are the one, true God in essence or nature, not “three Gods.”.
A more uncommon view called tritheism remains in conflict to Calvin’s view of the Trinity. In trying to reconcile the Trinity, proponents hold that each of the three persons is divine and all three are Gods. This degenerates from monotheism and views God as polytheistic. The doctrine of the Trinity is the outcome of a process of critical reflection on the patterns of divine activity revealed in Scripture, and is sustained in Christian experience.
The doctrine itself, within the confines of human thought and language, seeks to succinctly formulate who God has revealed himself to be and what He has done. Book VIII. Piety is necessary in a Bishop, but he needs also knowledge and dialectical skill in the face of such heresies as were rampant in Hilary's day; for the heretics outdo the orthodox in zeal, and are masters in the art of devising pitfalls for the unwary reasoner (§§ ).He maintains (§ 4) that hitherto he has established his case; and now turns, in § 5, to the Arian.
It is a difficulty, too, to them, in what manner the Holy Spirit is in the Trinity, whom neither the Father nor the Son, nor both, have begotten, although He is the Spirit both of the Father and of the Son.
On the Trinity Book I. Chapter On the Trinity (Latin: De Trinitate) is a Latin book written by Augustine of Hippo to discuss the Trinity in context of the logos. Although not as well known as some of his other works, it is arguably his masterpiece and of more doctrinal importance than the Confessions or City of God.
Thoughts About 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. The Trinity sets the limits on human speculation about the nature of God.
There is so much we would like to know about God, but our finite minds cannot comprehend it. We are not free to create God in our own image. The Trinity sets the limits for human speculation. God is more than the Trinity, but he is not less than that.
As a pastor, it can be hard to show folk why the Trinity is so important. A good little book I read last year was helpful. ‘The Trinity: Practically Speaking’ is written by Frank D Macchia (a Pentecostal). It definitely concentrated on the economic Trinity and shows how without Trinity.
There are enough quotes here to form a good picture of the early Christian explanation of the relationship between the Father and the Son.
Without some time spent on the subject, though, that is difficult because their doctrine of the Trinity was slightly different from our western view (though very close to the typical Eastern Orthodox view). Traces of the Trinity showcases the kind of creative theological thinking I’ve come to expect from Leithart as he probes creation and the human experience to see signs of the Triune God.
Leithart picks up on the tradition of looking for vestiga Trinitatis–traces of the Trinity–clues to the Triune life, the imprint of perichoresis (vii). He is not trying to argue compelling evidence for the Christian concept of God apart .A Tearing at the Trinity Another point to consider is that sin causes separation from the Creator (Isaiah ).
The iniquities of the human race were placed upon the Son of God (Isaiah ). When Jesus hung on the cross, suffering for our sins, every fiber of His being was torn as the eternal relationship with His Father and Spirit was ripped.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 (Trinity) is without questions revealed in God's Size: KB.
