The Trinity Question
I really enjoy your newsletter and your tapes. I can’t wait to get the next tape! I am curious about your position on the trinity. You seem to support the views of the pioneers in dealing with prophecy so it is safe to assume that you are non-trinitarian also like the pioneers? I know you are very busy so you don’t have to go into a lot of detail with your answer. Thank you and God bless. AC.
I would suggest you look at the book we now offer titled Detours and Ditches to receive a simple view of why I reject the wind of doctrine that you are identifying. Jeff.
“The Comforter that Christ promised to send after He ascended to heaven, is the Spirit in all the fullness of the Godhead, making manifest the power of divine grace to all who receive and believe in Christ as a personal Saviour. There are three living persons of the heavenly trio; in the name of these three great powers—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—those who receive Christ by living faith are baptized, and these powers will co-operate with the obedient subjects of heaven in their efforts to live the new life in Christ.
“Christ is the pre-existent, self-existent Son of God. . . . In speaking of his pre-existence, Christ carries the mind back through dateless ages. He assures us that there never was a time when He was not in close fellowship with the eternal God. He to whose voice the Jews were then listening had been with God as one brought up with Him.
“He was equal with God, infinite and omnipotent. . . . He is the eternal, self-existent Son.
“While God’s Word speaks of the humanity of Christ when upon this earth, it also speaks decidedly regarding His pre-existence. The Word existed as a divine being, even as the eternal Son of God, in union and oneness with His Father. From everlasting He was the Mediator of the covenant, the one in whom all nations of the earth, both Jews and Gentiles, if they accepted Him, were to be blessed. ‘The Word was with God, and the Word was God.’ Before men or angels were created, the Word was with God, and was God.” Evangelism, 615.
