So far we have learned that there is one God – the Creator of the world.
But a careful study of the Scriptures will show God exists in three Persons, that is, a Godhead manifested in three Persons. Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!”
Colossians 2:9 “For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily”
Objection: How can God be three Persons and one God at the same time? Would that not make three Gods, resembling pagan philosophy and contradicting Deuteronomy 6:4? Is the doctrine of the Trinity not incomprehensible and contrary to reason?
Isaiah 55:8-9 teaches us that human reason has no bearing in the study of God, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Neither the words “Trinity” nor “Triune God” can be found in the Scriptures.
