Tripping over the Trinity By Jeff Laird
Objections are common when discussing the Trinity, a doctrine frequently misunderstood and misinterpreted. Questions abound, such as: How can Jesus be God when Jesus says that God is greater than He is? What did Jesus mean when He said "no one is good - except God alone?" Who was Jesus praying to in Gethsemane? Doesn't the Bible say that Jesus is the "begotten" Son of God? Didn't Jesus say that God knew things which He Himself did not? What about Jesus claiming that certain judgments were not for Him to give?
Too often, these concerns are brushed off by calling the Trinity a "mystery", as though it was beyond reason and beyond question, period, end of story. Yet most objections are resolved through a clear explanation of what the Trinity is, and what it is not. It's not so far beyond our understanding that our only recourse is using "mystery" to avoid the subject entirely.
