The Trinity (God the Father, God the Son-Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit) is entirely active, necessary, and essential, in bringing about salvation. Dr. James White, in his book, The Forgotten Trinity, defines the Trinity as this; “Within the one being that is God, there exists eternally three coequal and coeternal persons, namely, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” All true Christians recognize, accept, and embrace that truth; a truth which has been understood throughout church history. Today, more than ever, Christians must ardently defend and proclaim this perspicuous and vital truth, found replete in the pages of holy Scripture; the Bible. Apart from ignorance, to deny the existence of the Trinity (three distinct, but co-equal persons that make up the Godhead), is not Christian doctrine and considered heresy.
Please ruminate on these four verses of Scripture extrapolated from the Bible; they validate the above paragraph. Incidentally, there are literally hundreds of such verses in the Bible:
“All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son, except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. Matt. 11:27–emphasis added. “No one can come to Me (Jesus Christ), unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.” John 6:44–emphasis added. “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” (John 14:26–emphasis added). Please note: if you consider pronouns, all three members of the Trinity are referenced.
“When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness of Me“, John 15:26–emphasis added. Please note: if you consider pronouns, all three members of the Trinity are referenced.
