The Triune God

Sunday, 14 April 2019

Many today, both lay and professional theologians, have criticized the traditional formulations of the doctrine of the Trinity (e.g., Nicaea, 325) as too Western and irrelevant for Asian societies. The Bible does not explicitly teach the doctrine of the Trinity. Rather, the doctrine of the Trinity is a theological construct. It does teach, however, that God is one, yet the Father is God, Jesus Christ is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. This talk examines the biblical teachings, which imply the doctrine of the Trinity, and their importance to Christian faith and living. It will also consider alternative approaches proposed by Asian church leaders and theologians in recent years.
