What do Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Oneness Pentecostals and a host of other theological cults all have in common? A tacit denial of the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity. And what may be worse is the Christian Church is culpable in causing the further proliferation of this denial.
The Biblical and historical doctrine of the Trinity receives very little attention in our modern Church age. In fact, many Christians, when pressed to define the term, employ confusing language at best or historically recognized heretical terms at worst.
It has not always been this way. The early church believed that a wrong view of God would, of necessity, lead to a wrong view of the Gospel. Therefore, false views could not, they reasoned, if we love God and His people, be allowed to go unchallenged.
And that is why this new series from NiceneCouncil.com, Tri-Unity: The Biblical Doctrine of God, featuring Dr. Michael Haykin, is of the utmost importance.
During the next few hours, Dr. Haykin will take the student on a journey through the Bible and the history of the early Church explaining how and why the doctrine of the Trinity is essential in order to have a proper view of God and to give one the tools for an orthodox world and life view.
“Years ago, while speaking at a conference I asked the host church if we could pass out a survey form. Attendees were to answer a series of questions and write a brief definition of the Trinity. Much to the pastor’s dismay, 93% of the answers received gave a heretical definition – one of either Arianism or Modalism. God help us!” — Jerry Johnson, President, NiceneCouncil.com
