THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY: Instructor: Lisa Nichols Hickman – [email protected] Director: Father Radu Bordeianu, Ph.D. Course Description: At the center of the Christian faith is a mystery. This mystery has everything to do with the identity of God, the nature of Christian community, the salvation history and our understanding of Christology. PRINITABLE VERSION. Benjamin B. Warfield. The term "Trinity" is not a Biblical term, and we are not using Biblical language when we define what is expressed by it as the doctrine that there is one only and true God, but in the unity of the Godhead there are three coeternal and coequal Persons, the same in substance but distinct in subsistence.

Trinity Doctrine denies the true sacrifice and the literal death on the cross. If Jesus is the same as the Father and is absolutely coequal with the blessed. What is the Trinity Doctrine? The doctrine of the Trinity as taught by most Churches states that there are three co-equal (equal in every respect), co-eternal (the same age), omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful) gods, who are not three gods, but one the words of the Athanasian Creed it is, “the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are.

Athanasius claims Origen, as teaching the same doctrine with that which he is himself maintaining. 1 But we shall find the difference to be a marked one, between the Athanasian and the Origenistic definition of "eternal generation;" and it is a difference of the utmost importance in the history of the doctrine of the trinity. This doctrine, now subscribed to by Christians all over the world, is entirely man-made in origin. The Doctrine Takes Shape. While Paul of Tarsus, the man who could rightfully be considered the true founder of Christianity, did formulate many of its doctrines, that of the Trinity was not among them.

True origin of the Sabellian and Athanasian doctrines of the Trinity by William Whiston Download PDF EPUB FB2

Sabellius (fl. ) was a third-century priest and theologian who most likely taught in Rome, but may have been a North African from Libya. Basil and others call him a Libyan from Pentapolis, but this seems to rest on the fact that Pentapolis was a place where the teachings of Sabellius thrived, according to Dionysius of Alexandria, c.

What is known of Sabellius is drawn mostly from. This is the first published edition of Schleiermacher's important essay, "On the Discrepancy between the Sabellian and Athanasian Method of Representing the Doctrine of the Trinity." Parts 1 and 2 were originally published in separate issues of in The Biblical Repository and Quarterly Observer (April and July, ).Author: Friedrich D.

Schleiermacher. In Christianity, Sabellianism is the western Church heresy equivalent to the eastern historic Patripassianism, which are both forms of theological ianism is the belief that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three different modes or aspects of God, as opposed to a Trinitarian view of three distinct persons within the Godhead.

The term Sabellianism comes from Sabellius, who was. Origin. Saint Athanasius spent his life combating the Arian heresy, which was condemned at the Council of Nicaea in Arius was a priest who denied the divinity of Christ by denying that there are three Persons in one God.

Thus, the Athanasian Creed is very much concerned with the doctrine of the Trinity. The Teachings of Sabellius were most vigorously opposed by Tertullian in North Africa and Hippolytus in Rome, who both proposed an hierarchical trinity of subordinate persons.[9] Tertullian gave Sabellius' doctrine the name Patripassianism, meaning ‘the father suffered’, since Sabellius made no true distinction of persons between the Father.

The formulation of the doctrine of the Trinity is a history of the refinement of terms and philosophical categories. Proper terminology was a primary issue of the ecumenical councils of the fourth and fifth centuries, and so was precision of thought and the philosophical categories used to characterize the Trinitarian and Christological doctrines.

Introduction. The word trinity is derived from the Latin word trinitas, which came from the Platonic term trias meaning three.

Thus it is philosophical in origin. The word trinity was introduced by Tertullian ( AD) who was a pagan turned Catholic theologian and one of the early Church fathers who wrote in the early third century to define the teaching concerning the Godhead.

Karl Barth's criticism of the Trinitarian formula "one God in three persons" is correct because "person" no longer adequately conveys the same meaning it did when it was used by the early Church fathers and creeds.

After the Post-Reformation era, an attribute of self-consciousness was added to the meaning of "person" that had the unintended consequence of changing the meaning of "three.

Church history shows a gradual assimilation of Pagan ideas into Christianity, brought about mostly by the Roman or Western Church, which became a political/religious extension of the Roman Empire.

Foremost among the pagan ideas was the adoption of the trinity doctrine into the dogma of the church. 35 David K. Bernard, A History of Christian Doctrine: The Post-Apostolic Age to the Middle Ages, A.D (Hazelwood: W ord Aflame Press, ),   The traditional Christian doctrine of the Trinity is commonly expressed as the statement that the one God exists as or in three equally divine “persons”, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Every significant concept in this statement (God, exists, as or in, equally divine, person) has been variously understood. Any doctrines therefore - such as the Trinity - formulated at this time are bound to be more pagan than Christian.) Returning to Mosheim's history of the 4th century, he records concerning the conduct and character of the church leaders (Cent.4, Part 2, Chap.

2, Sec. 5) - "The bishop of Rome took precedence over all others of the episcopal order. The Athanasian Creed Whoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic* faith. Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.

And the catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity. ‘Commentary on the Three Catholic Epistles of St. John,’ ‘Letter to the Earl of Nottingham concerning the Eternity of the Son of God,’six editions; ‘Reply’ to the same in ‘The true Origin of the Sabellian and Athanasian Doctrines of the Trinity,’   Book Overview Number of readings: 2 For most Christians the Mystery of the Blessed Trinity remains just that, a mystery.

This book presents to the reader a logical and compelling argument that the scriptures have been used to manufacture and support such a mystery and that from a correct sola scriptura point of view, the doctrine, and consequently the mystery, ceases to s: In the so-called Athanasian Creed, composed in the late fifth century, that which is basically Augustine’s teaching on the Trinity is identified as “the catholic faith.” In this creed, the unity of the divine Trinity is to the fore, and any suggestion that the Son or Spirit is subordinated in being or.

TRINITY: CREED OF ST. ATHANASIUS There is no greater subject to man than a correct knowledge of God. "3 And this is life eternal that they might know thee the only true God, AND Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." (Jesus, John 17) It is impossible to have faith in the true and living God without a correct understanding of His being, attributes, character, and perfections.

"6 But without faith. Tertullian's concern was a doctrine known as "modalism." This is the view that there is only one person in the Godhead. That one, individual God fills the role of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in much the same way that one actor can play three roles in the same it would be called oneness or.

From the very beginning, the readers get to know that, “Jesus is conceived by the Holy Spirit (Matt.20; Luke ) and thus “the Son of God” (Luke ) comes to be “Immanuel - God with us” (Matt. ) (Astika 7).

The discussion of the doctrine of the Trinity is an integral element in the history of the Christian church. The Athanasian Creed is far more thorough and detailed in its doctrine of the Trinity than is the Nicene Creed.

Whereas Nicea and Constantinople confessed the true deity of the Son and the Holy Spirit, they left room for the subordination of the Son to the Father and of the Holy Spirit to both. The so-called Athanasian Creed (also known by the Latin words it begins with, Quicunque vult) is considered by many to be the very definition of “the” orthodox is of uncertain origin, although many readers think it has a strongly Augustinian flavor (which if true shows it is not from Athansius himself, who died before Augustine was converted).CHAPTER IV.

POST-NICENE TRINITARIANISM. § 1. Mediaeval and Papal Tnnitariarmm. The history of the Doctrine of the Trinity in the Scholastic and Modern Churches can be compressed into a brief statement, the more readily, because this doctrine, more than is the case with any other, reached its approximately full developement in the first stages of its history.

“The doctrine of the Trinity, then, and that of the union of two natures in Christ, are doctrines, which, when fairly understood, it is impossible, from the nature of the human mind, should be believed. They involve manifest contradictions, and no man can believe what he perceives to .
