  1. One God, Not Three Gods

    Answering the often raised objection to Trinitarianism:

    I have had many conversations with Trinitarians and all of them that I have had conversations with will say this:

    The Father is God (that's 1 God)
    The Son is God (that's 1 God)
    The Holy Spirit is God (that's 1 God)

    If you add them up, that's THREE GODS. Sorry, you can't get around that. 1 + 1 + 1 = 3

  4. Doing Theology

    Over the years as a pastor and a teacher of theology I have encountered many Christians who have not studied Scripture or the theology contained in Scripture.
