So if the theory of the trinity is true AND scripture is true, then there is more than one God because Jesus has a God and the logic of the theory of the trinity would conclude that God has a God. John ESV Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, 'I am.

* That it arose as a product of scholarly debate rather than revelation. An argument from scripture history against the Trinity book concept of the Trinity is based on the conclusions set forth by the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed.

Neither of these creeds was written by prophets. Their writers. Once you see the pattern, this takes care a the majority of arguments against the Trinity that Arians raise. They all assume that only the Father is God (and therefore beg the question) in order to prove that the Son is not God.

All these passages show is that the Father and the Son are not the same person, which is consistent with the Trinity. The Best Argument Against Mormonism. Posted on September 4, by Theodore Shoebat. Now, if they are of the learned sort, they may try to use history, and say that the earliest Christians were anti-Trinity, just like the Mormons are today, and that this remnant of true Christianity was eclipsed by the Council of Nicaea.

Since God is spirit (2 Corinthians ), it is unclear how this Scripture fits their argument. Furthermore, Scripture witnesses to the Divine Trinity in many other places. For example: Matthew Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

I have a little time on my hands today that is devoted to answering my emails and following up on blog comments, including my comments on your blog. I thought I’d better get caught up on your blog rather than commenting further on an old blog.

History. A common misconception is that theism is An argument from scripture history against the Trinity book while atheism is modern, but mankind has been making arguments for and against the existence of deities—including, with the rise of monotheism, God—since the dawn of human history.

Bronze Age texts such as the Vedas present various arguments against the deities, such as the problem of evil and the Ultimate. Some elements of Trinitarian theology, therefore, are neither explicit in the words of Scripture nor ought to be expected to be.

If the charge that Trinitarianism is absent from the witness of Scripture was brought forward as a winning argument against the Trinity, Nazianzus treated it as no such thing. Warfield on biblical trinitarianism. Nor am I arguing against the Reformation doctrine of Scripture’s perspicuity (though I do believe it has to be carefully nuanced).

The point is, as Matt has already argued in this space, the Fathers were no less committed to grounding their theological concepts in the text and narrative of Holy Scripture. An exposition of many of the texts discussed here can be found in the author's book Why You Should Believe in the Trinity (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, ).

Unfortunately, it is currently out of print, but you may be able to locate a copy. BOOK I. The unity and equality of the Trinity are demonstrated out of the Scriptures; and the true interpretation is given of those texts which are wrongly alleged against the equality of the Son.

BOOK II. The equality of the Trinity maintained against objections drawn from those texts which speak of the sending of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Having addressed now the arguments from logic and Scripture, I now turn to the final major argument against the Trinity, the argument from history. After this, I will address some other arguments made by Unitarians, but these are rejoinders or defenses against Trinitarian argumentation, not actual arguments for Unitarianism or against.

The doctrine of the Trinity has been on the minds of Christians nearly from the time shortly after Jesus Christ ascended into heaven. Throughout Christian history, many have tried to defend the doctrine against various heresies.

White takes a different approach. White is a well-known apologist who has written on various apologetic subjects/5. Against God and Nature is an extremely valuable work that I am delighted to recommend.” David S. Dockery, Chancellor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School “No area of Christian theology is more obscure, complex, confused, and convoluted than the doctrine of sin.

Isaac Newton's place in the history of science is generally known. What it is less known is his place in the history of the doctrine of the Trinity. Newton devoted considerably attention to the Trinity, which (as an Arian) he opposed, even using the General Scholium to the Principia Mathematica as a forum to take a subtle swipe or two at the.

Book Review: Robert Letham, Union with Christ: In Scripture, History, and Theology Excerpt from review: The second insight is Letham’s much-appreciated stress on the soteriological import of the incarnation of the Word of God, reminding us that the very theo-logic of salvation is wrapped up in the mystery of the incarnate God-man.

In his book Tertullian against Praxeas, So much for the erroneous argument that the word “Trinity” is not in the Bible but the doctrine is. The Trinity doctrine did not exist for more than years AFTER the word “Trinity” was introduced and is totally different to what Tertullian taught.

So the Trinity was not derived from. The argument from history is both stronger and weaker than the other arguments for the existence of God. It is stronger because its data (its evidence) are some facts of history, things that have happened on this planet, rather than principles or ideas.

People are. A Serious Argument Against the Ordination of Women (Part 1) Alongside Scripture there are other significant reasons found in the experience of God's people in history and in God's other book-the book of creation or nature-that corroborate the biblical reasons.

Union with Christ is one of the most neglected doctrines in Christianity today and also one of the one of the Gospel's greatest mysteries. In his helpful book Union with Christ in Scripture, History, and Theology, Dr.

Granted, weekly communion is not commanded in Scripture, but consider the few biblical hints that we have regarding early church practice.

In Actsit seems implied that communion was first practiced daily by the early. The Trinity & Subordinationism provides extensive footnotes, as well as Scripture, author, and subject indices and an appendix on homosexuality.

The chapters on the Reformers' view of the Trinity, the novelty of the modern hierarchical position on women, and the "biblical" case for slavery are :   Kevin Giles charts the rise and fall of the complementarian doctrine of the Trinity in his book of that title.

Giles is an Australian Anglican minister who has argued against the eternal functional subordination of the Son — the name complementarians gave their Trinitarian doctrine — since the publication of his book, The Trinity and.

Holmes' "The Quest for the Trinity" was an excellent read. He takes 2, years of development in the Doctrine of the Trinity and condenses it into a well researched and accessible page book.

I really enjoyed his writing style and fair--but critical--treatment of the material/5. However this reviewer thinks Holmes would explain “development” like this, “After all, as I have tried to show, the debate down to Augustine was almost entirely exegetical, the search for a set of concepts that would allow every text of Scripture (including the Old Testament texts) to be true in what it affirmed; as concepts were borrowed.

Authority: Although Muslim apologists cite Scripture, they deny its ultimate authority and consistency, and they place the Qur’an as the highest authority over all matters. Assumption of Unitarianism: Behind their arguments against the Trinity is the often undefended assumption of Unitarianism.

This assumption must be exposed and challenged. Another important point about the Trinity is that it can be a difficult concept to grasp, but this does not necessitate an argument against its validity.

On the contrary, the fact that it is difficult is an argument for its truth. The Bible is the self-revelation of an infinite God. So, to say that the Trinity isn't true because the word isn't in the Bible is an invalid argument.

Maybe if CARM would take some time off from criticizing true Christians and actually read the Bible, they would not make such ridiculous statements as this.

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). End Notes [1] Erwin R. Gane, "The Arian or Anti-Trinitarian Views Presented in Seventh-day Adventist Literature and the Ellen G.

White Answer" (M.A. thesis, Andrews University, ). [2] Russell Holt, "The Doctrine of the Trinity in the Seventh-day Adventist Denomination: Its Rejection and Acceptance" (Term paper, Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, ), The argument from morality is an argument for the existence of nts from morality tend to be based on moral normativity or moral order.

Arguments from moral normativity observe some aspect of morality and argue that God is the best or only explanation for this, concluding that God must exist. Arguments from moral order are based on the asserted need for moral. Ahead of the Lambeth Conference of the Anglican Communion, C. Lewis responded to an essay by Lady Marjorie Nunburnholme on the question of women’s ordination to the Anglican priesthood.

Perhaps surprising to some, Lewis argued that it would be a “revolutionary step” to include women in the priesthood. In his essay, Lewis makes some. The argument caught on, but Alexander and Athanasius fought against Arius, arguing that it denied the Trinity. Christ is not of a like substance to God, they argued, but the same substance.

Third, we are commanded in Scripture to sing new songs in keeping with the progressive revelation of God’s redemption.

There are a number of calls in the Bible to sing new songs to God. In the past I have been hesitant to muster these calls as an argument against exclusive psalmody, but having considered for many years I now believe that they.

Robert M. Price's "The Case Against The Case for Christ" (Lee Strobel's popular book) is both a critique of Strobel's book and its specific arguments. On the overall book Price points out the major methodological flaw, being a collection of interviews with Christian apologists rather than a diverse set of scholars on various subjects from the 4/5.

The Trinity The Trinity itself is a teaching in the scriptures that is clearly expressed therein albeit not in systematic was and has been systematized for only one purpose: to refute heresy. By doing so, Christians are safeguarded against false theology and triumphantly obeys Jude The Trinity is not an evolved doctrine.

This was taken from CRI, a Protestant group mostly known for its Bible Answer Man program. **Apostolic Tradition Argument- There Are Contradictory Traditions It is acknowledged by all, even by Catholic scholars, that there are contradictory Christian traditions.

Support for this identification may be found in this writer’s introduction to the book. 2 The term is πληθυνθείη.

3 Mercy, grace, and peace are important qualities which are needed for people facing the attacks and deception of false teachers. Samuel Clarke was an eighteenth century Anglican clergyman and philosopher, and a friend of Sir Isaac Newton. He participated in the trinitarian debates following the Reformation, and authored his book The Scripture Doctrine of the Trinity to sum up, prove, and defend his views on the Trinity.

The book is divided into three parts, proceeded by an .Reasons for voting decision: The debate is about whether or not the Trinity is biblical, that is, that it is harmony in with scripture.
