There Is Something Wrong and We Don’t Even Know It: Gary Wilkerson and Matthew Barrett
Anyone familiar with boating knows the dangers of drifting. It can seem slight, but if not corrected, over time it will take you far off course. Matthew Barrett joins Gary Wilkerson to discuss the dangerous drifts taking place within the church’s understanding of the Trinity. Developing a proper doctrine of the Trinity will take work but it will be worth the effort.
Key Points from the Podcast
- In the last century, the modern church has drifted from, and even discarded, some key doctrines that have defined our biblical understanding of the Trinity.
- The Son is eternally begotten from the Father. There has never been a time when the Son was not the Son.
- If we are not careful, we might try to manipulate the Trinity for our own societal agendas and create the Trinity in our image.
- We must not drift into a tritheistic view of the Trinity—seeing Father, Son and Holy Spirit each as three distinct and separate gods.
- The oneness and unity of the Trinity is much more than the closeness and working together that we experience between as humans.
- Father, Son and Spirit each have the fullness of all the divine attributes—omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscient, etc.
- Developing a proper understanding of the Trinity will take work but it will be worth it.
