  10) 1 John – “The one who confesses the Son has the Father also.” 11) 1 John – Jesus was the only begotten Son of God whom God sent to be the propitiation for our sins. 12) 1 John – The Father sent His Son “to be the Savior of the world.”.   The Father generates the Son; the Son is generated by the Father; the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son [CCC 48]. 4. Is the Trinity the central mystery of . We do not confess three Gods, but one God in three persons, the "consubstantial Trinity". The divine persons do not share the one divinity among themselves but each of them is God whole and entire: "The Father is that which the Son is, the Son that which the Father is, the Father and the Son that which the Holy Spirit is, i.e. by nature one God.". No other religious writings (such as the Quran, the Book of Mormon, etc.) are true revelation from God. 3. The Holy Trinity is One God in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three.

The Holy Spirit is of the Father and of the Son, neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding." Pope St. Damasus I "The Holy Spirit is not of the Father only, or the Spirit of the Son only, but He is the Spirit of the Father and the Son. For it is written, ‘In anyone loves the world, the Spirit of the Father is not in him (1 John 2. The orthodox teaching concerning the Trinity, as finally developed and formally agreed at Constantinople in , is that God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit were all strictly one being in three hypostases, misleadingly translated as "persons". Sabellius taught that God is only one person, who acts now as Father in creating the universe, now as son in redeeming sinners, now as the Holy Spirit in sanctifying believers. The three divine Persons he believed to be three different roles acted out by one divine Being, much as one human person might be a husband, a father and a clerk. To Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. Timothy. Acts Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father was a Greek: . 1 Thessalonians

  The Holy Spirit’s role and function are not remarkable as the Father and the Son. It is interesting that in both Hebrew and Greek languages, the word “spirit” is the same word for “breath” or “wind.” Wind conveys power while breath associates with life. The work of the Holy Spirit in us is not as conspicuous as we would expect it. We do not confess three Gods, but one God in three persons, the "consubstantial Trinity". 83 The divine persons do not share the one divinity among themselves but each of them is God whole and entire: "The Father is that which the Son is, the Son that which the Father is, the Father and the Son that which the Holy Spirit is, i.e. by nature one.

Neither is the Spirit of either thence excluded, that is, the Spirit of the Father and of the Son; which Holy Spirit is specially called the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive. For to have the fruition of God the Trinity, after whose image we are made, is indeed the fullness of.

Certainly, during this time, church leaders spoke of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but they never referred to them as co-equal. In fact, the opposite was the case.

They spoke of the Father as supreme, the true and only God and of the son as inferior having a beginning, visible, begotten, immutable. According to Philippianswhat direction did Jesus' life take divinity, humanity, servant, criminal death The concept of the Trinity states that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one God in three persons, coexisting for eternity in a relationship of love.

True. The doctrine of the Holy Spirit is also known as: Who argued for a baptismal formula of identification with the Father, Son, and Spirit. Basil. The Holy Spirit gives gifts to various leaders in the Old Testament such as craftsmanship, prophecy, and leadership. Basil of Caesarea defended the divinity of the Spirit from a liturgical.

In other words, the Father is not the Son, the Son is not the Father, and the Holy Spirit is neither the Son nor the Father. They are distinct in persons but united in one essence, which is divinity.

Since their distinction is in person and not, in essence, they are all equal in power, authority, and nature – because they are all united in.

With the indwelling Spirit, the believer is made one with Christ, partakes of the divine nature, and is brought into fellowship with the Father and Son ().

It is especially in his hymns that Charles Wesley “simply refused to separate the immanent Trinity from the economic Trinity.”.

This Spirit is the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of Christ; the Spirit being the same whether it is spoken of as pertaining to God or Christ. But respecting this Spirit, the Bible uses expressions which cannot be harmonized with the idea that it is a person like the Father and the Son. Part One situates John's trinitarian teaching within the context of Second Temple Jewish monotheism.

Part Two examines the Gospel narrative in order 4/5(1). Trinitarianism: the belief in one God, yet confusingly and illogically maintaining that this one God is in effect three co-equal Gods of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Arianism: the belief in one God, but insisting that Jesus Christ is a created being and hence denying the divinity of the Son of God.

A study on the Divinity based on Scripture. Many verses describing the Father, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit. What did Ellen White believe. Many of her quotes on this subject. The hottest new book about Jesus, This is a clear statement of the Trinity — Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Matthew — Satan recognizes the deity of Jesus in a backhanded way by tempting Him to prove His divinity: “If You are the Son of God [which he knew He was]. Most impressive about this book is that the authors approach the Trinity in John's Gospel through two related discipline: biblical and systematic theology.

Part 1 of the book adopts the former approach, examining how Father, Son and Holy Spirit are presented in John's gospel/5(12).

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. 'triad', from Latin: trinus "threefold") holds that God is one God, but three coeternal and consubstantial persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy three persons are distinct, yet are one "substance, essence or nature" ().In this context, a "nature" is what one is, whereas a "person" is who one is.

And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. God. Luke If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?.

John One God of the Bible therefore is not a numerically singular personal Being but is a composite entity (or a committee) made up of three distinct, co-existing Persons (Father, Son and the Holy Spirit) and thereby disallowing God the Father as the Only True God (John1Corinthians ) of the Bible in.

God in one person and three natures; the Father, the Son, and The Holy Spirit Name and describe three defenders of the Catholic Church doctrine of the Trinity.

Patrick-used a shamrock to describe the trinity; St. Athanasius-council of Nicaea he was just a secretary but he wrote "light from light true God from true God"; St. Augustine-wrote. Subordinationism is a belief that began within early Christianity that asserts that the Son and the Holy Spirit are subordinate to God the Father in nature and being.

Various forms of subordinationism were believed or condemned until the mid-4th century, when the debate was decided against subordinationism as an element of the Arianafter many decades of formulating the. For the person of the Father is a distinct person, the person of the Son is another, and that of the Holy Spirit, still another.

But the divinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is one, their glory equal, their majesty coeternal.” The two key words here are essence and persons. When you read “essence”, think “Godness.”. As the author correctly states, the Holy Spirit IS the thrid person of the Trinity of Father, Son and Spirit.

What does The Urantia Book teach us about this amazing Person. Along with the title of "Holy Spirit," we are taught that this person is also called "The Infinite Spirit," and the "God of Action.".

Arianism is a nontrinitarian Christological doctrine which holds that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who was begotten by God the Father, and is distinct from the Father (therefore subordinate to him), but the Son is also God the Son but not co-eternal with God the Father.

Arian theology was first attributed to Arius (c. AD –), a Christian presbyter in Alexandria of Egypt. This page has been created to be a go-to page for Ellen White quotes regarding the one true God, His Son and the Holy Spirit.

You will clearly see that Ellen White believed there are only TWO beings in the 'Godhead', the Father and Son, and that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, which He received from the Father, NOT a so called 'third being' as the false trinity teaching says.

(2 Cor. "No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son who is in the bosom of the Father He hath declared Him." (John ). "No man knoweth the Son but the Father, and no man knoweth the Father but the Son, and he to whom the Son shall reveal him" (Matt.

The language used was that the one God exists in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit); in particular, it was affirmed that the Son was homoousios (of the same being) as the Father. The Nicene Creed declared the full divinity and full humanity of Jesus. Galatians - well, let's go to Galatians "and because you are The Sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his son into your hearts, crying out, 'abba, father!'" Again, father, son, spirit right there.

Ephesians"that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit" - God The Father, son, spirit right there.

The word trinity comes from "tri" meaning three and "unity" meaning one. God is three distinct individuals - God the Father, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit - in one true God.
