The Trinity Isn’t Like the Beatles, Huh Mom?

During today’s conversation on Backporch Theology, we’re going to basically do happy dances in the studio recounting some of the amazing things God did at our Kerygma Summit a few weeks ago. And then after a few minutes of old-school testifying about the GREAT things He has done we’re going to dive into the tricky waters of trinitarian theology. St. Augustine himself admitted the Trinity was a mystery, difficult for the finite human mind to grasp and yet rather than being some obscure doctrinal issue we can secretly scootch to the edge of our belief system, is the foundational wall of our Christian belief system, the very heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, it matters today every bit as much as it mattered in the 4th century when it was the focus of the Nicene Council and the Council of Chalcedon when ancient church leaders were first grappling with each other and the Holy Spirit to figure out what were the bedrock imperatives and standards of biblical orthodoxy! So please grab a big cup of coffee and your Bible – unless you’re driving or eating bugles of your fingers, of course! – and come hang out on the porch with us.  Back Porch Theology sponsored in part by Dwell Bible App. Save 30% off Dwell for Life at
