1 The Trinity - Part One
On the Trinity, the Westminister Confession states, "There
are three persons in the Godhead, the Father, the Son. and the
Holy Ghost, and these three are on God, the same in substance,
equal in power and glory." The Trinity is the distinctive mark of
Christianity. No pagan religion or philosophical system has ever ^
attained a trinitartan view of God. It is the great stumblingblock
for Jews and Moslems who accuse Christians of worshiping new
and different Gods from Jehovah of the Old Testament.
Corrupt Greek philosophy penetrated Christian theology
between the second and fourth centuries producing heresies
about the Trinity. Outstanding errors were (1) Subordinationism
belief that Jesus was highest being created by God and
dependent upon Him; (2) Adoptionism - belief that Jesus was a
man God adopted as His Son after anointing him with the Holy
Spirit called Christ and raising him from death; (3) Sabellianism
belief that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are not Godhead
persons but temporary roles God played in creating, redeeming,
and sanctifying men; and (4) Arianism - belief that God created
Jesus who in turn created the Holy Spirit. Pressured by these
heresies, the Church established the doctrine of the Trinity-at
the councils of Nicaea, 325 A.D. and Constantinople, 381 A.D.
In modern times Socinian, Unitarian, and other heretical
groups have sought to rob Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of
their Godhood by reducing them to a mere man and influence or
power, or converting the Trinity into a set of three gods. Other
heretics reduce the Father and Holy Spirit to mere names for
Failure to grasp the progressive unfolding of the mystery of
the Godhead in the plan of salvation has lead to most errors.
The Old Testament was to fix firmly God's unity (only one God)
in the midst of heathen idolatry. Thus it was not safe to speak of
plurality within the Godhead (3 persons in one Godhead) until it
was revealed when God sent His Son for redemption (John 3:17,
Galatians 4:4) and His Spirit for sanctification (John 14:26: Acts
2:33). This revelation was included in the New Testament and
accepted by first century Christians without struggle and
controversy. "When the Holy Spirit convinces a man of his sin,
and brings him face to face with the outraged holiness and love
of God, he is moved to cry from the depths of his soul: "None
but an infinite Savior can ever save me!" (Augustus Strong).
The Trinity becomes a necessary fact then as Acts 2:32-40 show.
Sinner call upon Christ in the power of the Spirit to save you ,
from wrath of the Father.
