Verifying the Trinity
You can not be a Christian very long before you are indoctrinated with the nature of God. Most denominational churches have accepted the beliefs of our church fathers in a triune God and have adopted them as tenants of their faith. However, can the Doctrine of the trinity be verified?
Conversations are normal between persons, but there are no apparent discussions between the Holy Spirit and God the Father or God the Son. Itís obvious that God the father and Jesus Christ had conversations, because they worked together. Still the lack of conversing to or from the Holy Spirit by God the Father and God the Son presents a dilemma that contradicts the doctrine of the trinity. It means that the Holy Spirit was not recognized, as the third person within the group man believes to be the trinity.
It is the policy of thinkgodly to present the truth from Godís word and allow God the opportunity to change the way you think. In this series of articles you will hear what thinkgodly believes to be Godís perspective about his nature. shortly after the author of thinkgodly was saved he would have defended the Trinity Doctrine and in reading this series of articles you will learn the truths that changed his mind.
Church leaders tell us that trinity is not discoverable, so it is incapable of proof from reason and that the trinity is a pure revelation. This is another contradiction from the doctrine as men and women who believe in the trinity use the bible to support their beliefs. The God of Creation says this
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Psalms 19:1-3
Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Romans 1:18-20
From the human perspective, men and women inherently know that God exists and worship one god or another through out the world. The worship of a god is true even in places where the word of God has never been preached. The God of creation wants everyone on the face of the earth to know that he exists and that he is neither revoltingly to the eye nor a tyrant that rules with an iron fist.
God also established two accounts that are witnesses to his creation giving glory to God. First, God created an environment in which man would spend his life in such a way that he could see with his eyes hear with his ears and touch with his hands the very things God created. Second, God inspired and gave his word, which explained his creation in greater detail. These two accounts do as much to verify Godís word as it does to glorify the creator.
The title, Verifying The Trinity, suggests that thinkgodly is questioning the validity of a doctrine the Church has held sacred for the last 1600 years. If what the title suggests is true, than the author must prove his points by verifying the unity of God as 2 Corinthians 13:1 commands. Secondly, Verifying The Trinity must also explain its reasoning in a way that you ultimately become the judge of whether it is true or false.
No one has the monopoly on the truth so God asks that we test everything and hold onto what is good. Truth has a high value to those who love God because living by the truth leads to godliness. No one likes being deceived because they feel like a fool when they discover the deception. Verifying The Trinity takes a logical approach to the trinity even asking questions of what appears to draw an obvious deduction. Christians have a moral obligation to accurately handle the truth as what they say and do affects the lives of other people. The only way to accurately handle the truth is to support the truth with the abundance of scripture. The outcome is that one deducts the truth by certifying the truth through verification.
God said that it is your spiritual act of worship to renew our minds so we are able to test and approve what Godís will is. (Paraphrased Romans 12:1-2.) On the other hand Christians accept what our leaders say (traditional teaching) with greater respect using blind faith rather than testing the words of God who created the heavens and the Earth.
