In a recent television interview, Pastor Rick Warren was asked his opinion about the Mormon Church and he graciously replied that he had a problem with their view of the Trinity, that it was not the Biblical view. I appreciated that because it cut to the core of the difference between the Mormon Church and the Biblical Christian Church–what God do we believe in?
In this and the next several lessons we will look at this in detail as we study the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. God does not reveal things to us in the Bible to confuse us–He wants us to understand the Trinity. It is the foundational teaching about our God and where Biblical Christians different fundamentally with other religions and cults.
In this lesson we start by a review of “Progressive Revelation” how God reveals many truths to us progressively through the Bible. We also look at “explicit” and “implicit” truth to answer the questions as to why the word “trinity” is not in the Bible, but is still a Biblical truth.
