What are Trinitarian theologians seeking to achieve?

11 03 2009

At various times Trinitarian theology has been confused with Tritheism – a belief in three Gods. This is accusation is often made in our present time by Islamic apologists (there are many example on YouTube) and Oneness Pentecostals.

Tom Torrance wrote,

The doctrine of the Trinity is not a doctrine of three Gods, but a doctrine of the one Lord God with a profounder understanding of the inner unity of his eternal being.

The Mediation of Christ, 1992p, p. 106-107

This is what Trinitarian theology seeks to provide – a profounder understanding of the relationships between Father, Son and Spirit within their essential unity.
