Let’s face it. There are things about God that we won’t fully understand in this lifetime, and that’s okay. For some this will move you to praise God, while others may get upset and complain. Fred Sanders joins Gary Wilkerson to discuss the Trinity and the incomprehensibility of God.
Key Points from the Podcast
Studying the Trinity is not some academic problem to be solved but a vast and wonderful topic of study in which we get to learn more about our triune God.
An improper understanding of the Trinity could lead one into serial monotheism or even tritheism.
Trying to understand the simultaneous oneness of God and the three persons of the Trinity will move some to praise, while others may be drawn to confusion and complaint.
As Christians we must be comfortable knowing that we are not going to fully understand everything about God.
