Does the Trinity have practical impact on the Christian life?  It sure does!

How?  This series of four audio sessions is worth downloading and listening.

A recent troll said to me:

Jesus himself said he wasn’t God! Mark 10:18 & Luke 18:19

Both Mark 10:18 and Luke 18:19 parallel each other.

This is what Mark 10:18 states:

And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

This is what Luke 18:19 states:

And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

This is how she would argue it:

Jesus denies he’s good: “no one is”

Only God is good

Ergo Jesus isn’t God

Does this show Jesus is not God?  I don’t think so.  Let me explain.

This is for a retreat this weekend where I’ll be teaching on the topic of the Trinity and Christian life!

Purpose: In this lesson we will explore John 17:20-23 and see how the Trinity helps with Christian unity so that we would be united as a church spiritually.

  • Point 1: The result of Christian Unity
  • Point 2: Mirroring the Trinity for our Unity
  • Point 3: Means of Unity

Passage:I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.” (John 17:20-23)

  • The context here is Jesus’ prayer to God the Father the night He is going to die.
  • Here Jesus’ prayer is for the believers of all time and not just His immediate disciples on that night.

The Trinity is an important doctrine.

Here’s a series I did responding to certain objections against the Trinity that I never got around to compiling in one post as a table of contents until now.

Note: I was working on a book review late last night but one of my daughter was really sick so I couldn’t finish the review.  I thought I share these helpful videos by Christian apologist Anthony Rogers.

The Doctrine of the Trinity is foundational to Christian thought.  Christian Anthony Rogers begins his series on the Trinity in Jewish and Christian Scripture with an introduction, then discusses the Trinitarian implication of Genesis 1:26, followed by a response to two objections.  These two objections are: (1) The text is using the “plural of majesty”; and (2) the text is including angels as co-creators with God.  After that Roger discusses the Trinitarian implications of Genesis 19:24 which teaches there are Two Divine Persons.  Finally there’s a discussion of the divine “Angel” of the Lord in the book of Genesis.  All of this is just from the book of Genesis!  This is a well done series.

Dr. Vern Poythress is one of those incredible intellectual gift to the Church.  He’s a Christian professor, a Reformed theologian, New Testament scholar, expert on hermeneutics, linguist, a Presuppositional apologist and philosopher who was a prodigy that went to Cal Tech before he was 18 and have several doctorates including a PhD in Mathematics from Harvard University.

He’s recently was interviewed for a podcast on the Missions Podcast from ABWE International.  It’s a wonderful discussion on multiple things I’m excited about:  Missions, Language Presuppositional Apologetics and Theology!

Ten days ago I got a comment on my post Who Is God? Trinity Debate: Dr. James White vs Bro. Joe Ventilacion that I want to respond to in this post.  For context the original post was a debate between Christian apologist James White and a defender of the cult Iglesia ni Cristo.

Iglesia ni Cristo denies the deity of Christ.  In the comment section of my post an individual name “TaTaton90” argued against the divinity of Christ. In this post I want address this specific argument:

Jesus Christ cannot be God and be praying to himself. 

Does the fact that Jesus prays to God mean that Jesus is not Divine?  I don’t think so.  Let me explain.
