Defending the Trinity

Many of the great heresies that have faced the church have come from different understandings (misunderstandings) of the doctrine of the Trinity. Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology lists the three core components of the trinitarian belief. They are in tension, they don't "make sense" to our human mind, but deviating from any of these three core components leads us astray:

1. God exists eternally as three persons.
2. Each person is fully God.
3. There is one God.

Greetings

On the subject of the Trinity,
I recommend this video:
The Human Jesus

Take a couple of hours to watch it; and prayerfully it will aid you to reconsider "The Trinity"

Out of courtesy, I did watch some of the video. But suffice it to say that I believe there is good reason why the Jesus-only or Oneness doctrines have been considered heretical for more than 17 centuries.

Sir, you need to watch the rest of the video!

It has absolutely nothing to do with the Jesus-only or Oneness doctrines!! LOL :-)

So please persevere with the video.
And let me know your thoughts.

No, I think I watched enough and poked around your blog enough to understand where you and I differ on this topic.
