    Early Mormon beliefs regarding the nature of God Summary: Some evangelical Christians attempt to show that the LDS idea of deification is unbiblical, unchristian and seem to think that this doctrine is the main reason why the LDS reject the Psychological Trinity.   We’ve all the heard one about the three-lobed shamrock and the Trinity. But it turns out that God’s triune nature is imprinted on all creatures, according to two of the greatest doctors of the Church in the s—St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Bonaventure.. In the Summa Theologica, Aquinas says that all creatures with an intellect and a will reflect the Trinity.

      This approach to God and nature seems puzzling to our western perceptions, but there is a long, biblically-based church history of understanding that God works with the characteristics of the natural things he created and sustains. [2] This seeming paradox may be compared to our strange modern understanding of light energy.   In a previous version of this post, I recommended John Frame’s The Doctrine of God and a book by Bruce Ware on the Trinity. I can no longer recommend Frame’s book because it has become evident that he has moved away from the classical Christian understanding of such doctrines as divine simplicity and : Keith Mathison.

Because of this New Testament revelation, Christian orthodoxy relies on an understanding of God as a Trinity—one living and true God who exists eternally as three persons: the .

On the Nature of God and on the Trinity by Johann Gerhard Download PDF EPUB FB2

It continues two works: "On the Nature of God" and "On the Trinity". The first work I was surprised at how scholastic this was - more like Aquinas than Luther.

Whereas Luther concentrates on God revealed on the Cross, Gerhard is concerned with a full scholastic examination of God/5. Once we realize why Trinity is false doctrine we can see how the Latter-day Saint concept of God’s nature provides a successful structure for atonement and exaltation that is much more “Christian” than either the Trinity or polytheism.

Godhead In The Book Of Mormon. The Book of Mormon defines God as a union of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The Nature of God and the Trinity begins for the human race with the being of creation.

For Christians this starts with the Bible chapter of Genesis. Many people in this world though do not know or understand the concept of God and his nature and cannot see how God becomes three different entities all in one; The Father, The Son, and Holy.

On the Nature of God and on the Trinity, translated by Richard J. Dinda, addresses God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as Gerhard explores the divine names, the natural knowledge of God, the divine essence, and the mystery of the Trinity. As Gerhard makes the argument for the Trinity, he turns repeatedly to Holy Scripture and interacts with 3/5(1).

The Trinity sets the limits on human speculation about the nature of God. There is so much we would like to know about God, but our finite minds cannot comprehend it. We are not free to create God in our own image. The Trinity sets the limits for human speculation. God is more than the Trinity, but he is not less than that.

Piety is necessary in a Bishop, but he needs also knowledge and dialectical skill in the face of such heresies as were rampant in Hilary's day; for the heretics outdo the orthodox in zeal, and are masters in the art of devising pitfalls for the unwary reasoner (§§ ).He maintains (§ 4) that hitherto he has established his case; and now turns, in § 5, to the Arian.

Is God a Trinity. The Trinity is one of mainstream Christianity’s most widely accepted and revered doctrines. The belief that God is three persons coexisting in one being or substance, as the doctrine is often defined, is held by millions of Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox believers alike.

The triune nature of God is one of the core doctrines of the Christian faith and distinguishes Christianity from all other belief systems. Yet, the Trinity has continued to be challenged throughout history and is a watershed issue of our time.4/5(1).

Home > Fathers of the Church > On the Trinity > Book XIV. On the Trinity (Book XIV) For although the human mind is not of the same nature with God, yet the image of that nature than which none is better, is to be sought and found in us, in that than which our nature also has nothing better.

The short statement of the doctrine is, as we have heard all our lives, that there are three persons in one nature. But if we attach no meaning to the word person, and no meaning to the word nature, then both the nouns have dropped out of our definition, and we are left only with the numbers three and one, and get along as best we can with these.

On the Trinity (Book XV) From Him, certainly, from whom the Son had his Divine nature, for He is God of God, He has also, that from Him too proceeds the Holy Spirit; and hence the Holy Spirit has from the Father Himself, that He should proceed from the Son also, as He proceeds from the Father.

Truths Known About God. The word “Trinity” is a combination of “tri” and “unity” and is used in theology because we know through revelation that God is one yet three. God has one divine nature and there are three divine persons in the one Godhead: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

He also intimates that the nature of God may be understood from our understanding of truth, from our knowledge of the supreme good, and from our implanted love of righteousness; but above all, that our knowledge of God is to be sought through love, in which he notices a trio of things which contains a trace of the Trinity BOOK Size: 1MB.

Under the Old Testament, the church of God was not told near so much about the Trinity as they are now; but what the New Testament has revealed, though it has more opened to our view the nature of God, yet it has increased the number of visible mysteries and things that appear to us exceeding wonderful and incomprehensible.Tim Chester will take us deeper into understanding the thrilling triune nature of God.
