1 + 1 + 1 = 1

1+1+1=1

One Thousand Five Hundred years ago the doctrine that Christians spent more hot-air on than any other was the doctrine of the Trinity. Stated as simply as possible according to this doctrine we can speak of God as both a perfect unity and as three persons. A lot of modern Christians chuckle when they hear about these ancient debates. It reminds them of arguments among modern physicists about atomic structure, and nuclear phenomena. If youre not a specialist the argument is hard to follow. And besides, what difference does it make?

The Bible declares that Jesus Christ was active at creation along with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Christians are to baptize new believers in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us that Jesus was fully divine. But so what? How important really is it? One of the most important lessons in the doctrine of the Trinity is how we should regard the differences between men and women. We do not become more like God by trying to minimize the differences. Instead, we are most like God when we honor the differences and learn to work together using our distinctive gifts for the good of others. We are most like God when we cooperate in service. Amen.

For Mercy Street Ministries, Im Stan Baldwin.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. John 1:1-3.
