Is The Trinity An Essential Doctrine?


Reader I do believe the Trinity is an essential doctrine for believers; but at the same time I don't believe one has to be able to understand the Trinity doctrine in order to be saved. 

The Trinity is a very sensitive subject for many in the body of Christ, which was illustrated last week when a young Christian hip-hop rapper came under internet fire for a quote that he posted online that was taken way-out of contextaccording to him. Trinity is the doctrine that states there is one God but three Persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  


There's a difference between not knowing about the Trinity, and denying it. To preach an anti biblical doctrine of God is spiritually dangerous. So if someone is preaching an untruth about God, that makes them a heretic. I'm not calling this youngman a heretic but some in the body of Christ jumped on that bandwagon. Here's his response video:  

Scripture clearly states that there is one God yet three separate Persons.  A prime example of this is Allah, the God of Islam, is not the same as Yahweh the God of the Bible. The Trinity doctrine helps us to understand this fact. 

The God of Islam is not the same as the God of Christianity. In Christianity God is Triune , but in Islam God is not Triune. It's not possible to have God be a Trinity and also not a Trinity at the same time. Therefore, they cannot be the same. Furthermore, because Islam denies the Trinity (that there is one God who is comprised of three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), it means that in Islam, Jesus is not the incarnation of the second person of the Trinity.

  1. Miss Ann,

    The Trinity is not a sensitive subject, it is a doctrine that was started by Ignatius of Antioch in the fourth century (he also wrote letters on the sacraments, ecclesiology, and the role of bishops, a contrast to what the bible says {ref. Wikipedia}). This doctrine, according to Wikipedia, is based on two bible references, i.e. Genesis 18 (the three men who visited Abraham and prophesied the birth of Isaac) and Matthew 28:19 (“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”).

    Does the word of God in anyway confirm that God is three in one and nothing else? We need to start from Genesis and end in Revelation. But we need also to understand, that we will never know God in his totality while here on earth. “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” (1 John 3:2).

    In Genesis 1:26, we understand from get go that God created man in his image but he references “us”, alluding to the fact that it is more than one person of God that created man.

    God’s fatherhood can be traced from Genesis 6:2 (“the sons of God saw the daughters of men… ”), and then on to Psalm 68:5 (“A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.”), Luke 3:38 (“Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.”), John 6:39 (“And this is the Father's will which hath sent me..”).

    We are introduced to the sons of God in them Genesis 6:2, Job 1:6 (“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.”). Jesus, however, is introduced to us as the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON (John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”). Please note that it is only when we believe in the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON of God that we shall have everlasting life.

    The first time the Spirit of God is mentioned in the bible is in Genesis 1:2 (“And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”). We also see that the spirit of God would come upon prophets and they would prophesy (1 Samuel 19) or be carried away as in the case of Elijah (2 Kings 2), also refer to other prophets such as Isaiah, Daniel, Ezekiel. And then there is prophecy on God pouring out his spirit on all flesh (Joel 2:28), which according to Acts 2:17 was fulfilled at Pentecost. Jesus does describe the Spirit of God to his disciples, as a spirit of truth (John 16:13) comforter and a teacher, (John 14:26). The Spirit of God is a witness with our spirit that we are children of the most high God (Romans 8:16). Fast forward to Revelation, John the beloved was in the Spirit and he saw the seven Spirits at the throne of God (Revelation 1:4, 3:1, 4:5, 5:6).

      The one time that the “Trinity” is alluded to is in 1 John 5:5-13 “Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” You will notice that those who overcome the world are those that believe that Jesus is the Son of God and not in the Trinity. The Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost being one does not imply that this is the entire description of who God is (Refer to God’s response to Job, chapters 38 - 41) but that they are in agreement.

      Just like Romans 3:4 says “…let God be true, but every man a liar;” we should be careful not to be entangled in senseless debates (2 Timothy 2:23). “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” (Acts 16:31).

      In conclusion, the doctrine of trinity was started by the Catholic Church fathers, whose own interpretation of the Word of God is as questionable as their faith. Therefore, the trinity doctrine cannot be essential for those who believe in the Lord Jesus because their salvation is not pegged onto this as referenced in the Word of God.

    3. Also please explain this:

      John 1:1‭, ‬14 KJV

      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


      If Jesus is the Word and the Word is God... exactly how is the Word not God?

      Please explain.

    4. Big Chris,

      If you actually read the whole discourse, I did NOT say that I do NOT believe that Jesus is God. Re-read 1 John 5 in its entirety. Also reference when Peter declared to Jesus that he is the Christ, the Son of the living God (Matthew 16:16-18).

      If you believe in Jesus as the Son of God, it is enough and that doesn't mean that you belittle him that he is not God. "Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me..." (John 14:11). Jesus and the Father are one and NOT separate. So if you believe in Jesus that he is the Son of God, you believe that he came from God, that he is of God and that he is God.


      Please read the WORD of God in it's entirety for life, preservation, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

    6. You definitely are a trip Big Chri$.

      The fact that you state "fair enough", is enough for me (pun so intended) to know that you are not about knowing who God is. You are about winning an argument.

      The question that you have to answer to yourself is whether YOU do believe that Jesus Christ has come in flesh (1 John 4:2).

      And before you clap back, I do believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God (Matthew 16:16-18, John 3:16) and I am working out my salvation in fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).

    7. Hey Shepherd -

      So you are still on your journey to discovering who Christ is. That's awesome. I will be praying for you as well.

      As for me, I definitely believe in the Trinity and I 1000% believe Jesus is God. It's good that you don't deny that fact while at the same time say you are still learning and researching it. That's an honest answer and I commend you for that.

      As for this post though and the quesRion presented yes I do think it is ESSENTIAL to know Jesus as Lord & GOD. I don't think anyone can have salvation that denies Jesus is God. I think the Bible is clear on that.

      I hope and pray that you come to this same conclusion eventually.

      In Christ,

    8. Big Chri$,

      As a believer, I am careful NOT to add or remove from the WORD of God (Proverbs 30:6). We have been given the gift of Salvation through Christ our Lord and it is through him that we attain eternal life (1 John 5). Our belief should be in the boundaries of HIS word and NOT what we think he says. Please note that my belief in Jesus as the Son of the Living God does NOT deny his place in who he is as one with God.

      Much as you would like to "put" me down or whatever it is that you want to achieve, I see that you yourself are not referencing scripture that much (refer to your response below regarding trinity). One thing it says to me is that you believe otherwise other than what God has written in his WORD.

      I cannot come to the same conclusion as you because you are not aligned to scripture as is expected in a believer.

      I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God. I can only come to the Father through him (John 14:6) and he is at the right hand of God interceding for me (Romans 8:34).

      You on the other hand are yet to show me line by line, precept upon precept that your conclusion is THE requirement for our salvation and nothing else. "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)

    9. Hey Shepherd -

      I'm not trying to put you down at all. I actually like you and most of the posts you submit only this site. I almost always agree with way you have to say. I will say it did shock me to see that you haven't yet come to the belief that Jesus is God. However, we all come to that point in our own due time according to His will.

      Some of the scriptures I found helpful regarding Jesus' divinity that can also be found here:

      https://carm.org/bible-verses-show-jesus-divine

      John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

      John 1:14, "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth."

      John 5:18, "For this cause therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God."

      John 8:24, "I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you shall die in your sins."
      Note: In the Greek, "He" is not there.

      John 8:58, "Jesus said to them, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.'"

      Exodus 3:14, "And God said to Moses, 'I AM WHO I AM'; and He said, Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’"

      John 10:30-33, "I and the Father are one." 31 The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?" 33 The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God."

      John 20:28, "Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"

      Col. 2:9, "For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form."

      Phil. 2:5-8, "Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

      Heb. 1:8, "But of the Son He says, "Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the righteous scepter is the scepter of His kingdom."
      Quoted from Psalm 45:6, "Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Thy kingdom."

    10. Jesus is prayed to

      Acts 7:55-60, "But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God; 56 and he said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." 57 But they cried out with a loud voice, and covered their ears, and they rushed upon him with one impulse. 58 And when they had driven him out of the city, they began stoning him, and the witnesses laid aside their robes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59 And they went on stoning Stephen as he called upon the Lord and said, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!" 60 And falling on his knees, he cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them!" And having said this, he fell asleep."

      1 Cor. 1:1-2, "Paul, called as an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2 to the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours." (The phrase, "to call upon the name of the Lord" is a phrase used to designate prayer).

      1 Kings 18:24, "Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord, and the God who answers by fire, He is God." And all the people answered and said, "That is a good idea."

      Zech. 13:9, "And I will bring the third part through the fire, refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are My people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’"

      Rom. 10:13-14, "for 'whoever will call upon the name of the Lord' will be saved." 14 How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard?" (Paul is speaking of calling upon Jesus. (The phrase "Call upon the name of the Lord" is a quote from Joel 2:32).

      Joel 2:32, "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call." (LORD here is YHWH, the name of God as revealed in Exodus 3:14. Therefore, this quote, dealing with God Himself is attributed to Jesus).

      First and Last
      Isaiah 44:6, "Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, and there is no God besides Me."

      Rev. 1:17-18, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades."

    11. All of those verses are overwhelming evidences of Jesus' divinity after I read them years ago. Jesus calls himself the great I AM which is a name only reserved for God. They immediately tried to kill him for blasphemy bc they CORRECTLY understood he was claiming to be God. In John it says Jesus created EVERYTHING. But in Genesis 1:1 it says God created everything. Jesus = God. If Jesus created everything and Jesus is the great I AM of the old Testament and even in Hebrews the Father calls him God (see above verse) then how can I not call him the same? We know from scripture that ONLY God is to be worshipped yet Jesus is worshipped time and time again in scripture. This is yet another evidence of his divinity. His disciples understood him as God, Paul did, the angles do, even the Father does... and again in Revelations we see in Heaven he is sitting on the throne being worshipped.

      I hope these verses help in your quest for the ultimate truth and knowledge. Because to me this is the most foundational and most important thing anyone can know and that is Jesus as God. The question we ALL will have to answer at the end of the day is the same question Jesus posed 2k years ago... WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM? The answer to that one question has eternal consequences.

      I hope I've helped and I pray that you Jesus reveals himself fully to you as you continue on your quest.

      Bless you.

    12. Big Chri$,

      Thanks for the verses. The original question was whether believing in the trinity is essential doctrine for salvation. My answer is no. And I believe that it is our belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God that propels us to eternal life.

      I did not deny Jesus being one with the Father. I know that if we believe in him, we believe in the one who sent him. And that is the work of God (John 6:29).

      Thanks again,

      The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

    13. You're welcome Shepherd :o)

      As for the original question I do believe believing inthe Trinity is essential... but as far Salvation one has to believe in God and that Jesus is God. I don't believe you can have salvation believing in God but at the same time thinking and believing Jesus isn't God if that makes any sense.

      So theoretically you can be saved without totally understanding the Trinity but to be saved you must believe at least 2 persons of the Trinity are God The Father & The Son. Coming to know and understand the Holy Spirit as God is something that can be learned on the way to Christian maturity.

      Again though I think the key is Jesus (as he always is). I think you have to caarpt him as God to be saved that if a person doesn't say what Thomas did of him, if a person doesn't call Jesus My Lord AND MY GOD then they can't be saved.

      Tricky question but all hope should be in Christ and his divinity.

    14. I'm just reading this and this PERFECTLY reflects how I feel and articulates it way better than I have done this far:

      https://carm.org/do-you-have-to-believe-the-trinity-to-be-christian

      Do you have to believe in the Trinity to be a Christian?

      In one sense you do not have to believe in the Trinity to be a Christian, but in another sense you do. Let me explain. The Bible does not tell us that we must believe in the Trinity in order to become saved; that is, to become a Christian. On the other hand, true Christians will end up believing in the Trinity because it is the proper teaching concerning God's nature that has been revealed to us in Scripture. So, though someone may not understand the Trinity when he or she becomes a Christian, eventually he will end up believing in it because he's a Christian.

      The doctrine of the Trinity is the proper biblical teaching concerning the nature of God. It is one of the defining elements of the Christian faith. The Trinity, like the deity of Christ (John 8:24; John 1:1, 14; Colossians 2:9), Christ's physical resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:14, 17), and justification by faith alone in Christ alone (Romans 3:28; 4:1-5; 5:1; Galatians 2:21), are among the essential doctrines of the Christian faith. To deny any of these is to deny what makes Christianity Christian. But, I want to make it clear that we believe these things because they are true and because the Holy Spirit who indwells Christians bears witness of truth (John 14:26; 15:26).

      It is not believing in the Trinity that makes us Christian. Rather, it is being a Christian (and being indwelt by the Holy Spirit) that enables us to believe in the Trinity. So, in one sense it's not a requirement to affirm the doctrines the Trinity in order to become saved. However, the true Christian will not deny the doctrine of the Trinity because the Holy Spirit will bear witness of truth (John 15:26) in the Trinity as true. This would mean that anyone who claims to be a Christian, but openly and continually rejects the doctrine of the Trinity, is probably not truly saved.

    15. I found this to be very helpful as well:

      https://www.gty.org/resources/questions/QA519/Can-You-Be-a-Christian-and-Deny-the-Trinity

      Question:

      A Mormon asked me this question a number of years ago, and through the years here at church, I’ve asked a number of people this question, and I wanted to get your opinion. Can you become a Christian if you deny the Trinity?

      Answer:

      I would answer, "No." If you don’t believe in the Trinity, then you don’t understand who God is. You may say the word “God” but you don’t understand His nature. Second, you couldn’t possibly understand who Christ is—that He is God in human flesh. The Incarnation of Christ is an essential component of the biblical gospel, as John 1:1-14 and many other biblical passages make clear. To deny the Trinity is to deny the Incarnation. And to deny the Incarnation is to wrongly understand the true gospel.

      In saying that, I realize that such an answer is going to not only impact people that you may have witnessed to (like Mormons), but it also applies to some in the broader Pentecostal movement, called United Pentecostals or "Jesus-Only" Pentecostals. Such individuals hold to a kind of modalism, where God is sometimes in the mode of the Father or the mode of the Son or the mode of the Spirit, but He’s never all three at the same time. That too is a deficient and heretical view of the Trinity. It denies the distinct Personhood of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

      The same question sometimes arises about the virgin birth. I think it is possible for a person to become a Christian before learning about the details of the virgin birth, though that person would certainly assume that Jesus Christ must have had a unique birth since He is both God and man. But, if someone knows about the virgin birth and says, “I deny the virgin birth,” then he is simultaneously denying the deity of Christ, and also the Trinity. Such a person betrays the fact that they do not understand the gospel, and therefore cannot have truly been saved.

    16. Lastly, I think this hits it right on the head as far as a SAVING Faith in the REAL Jesus:

      https://carm.org/is-believing-in-jesus-enough-to-be-saved

      Is believing in Jesus enough to be saved?

      Yes, believing in Jesus is enough to be saved. However, for the sake of clarity we must explain a few things. First of all, there are many false religious groups out there who say they believe in Jesus but in actuality do not. The Mormons, for example, teach that Jesus is a brother of the devil, begotten through sexual intercourse between God and his goddess wife who both came from another planet. That is not the Jesus of the Bible. The Jehovah's Witnesses teach that Jesus is Michael the Archangel who became a man. That is also a false Jesus. Believing in them won't save you because faith is only as good as who or what we put it in. In fact, Jesus warned us about this when he said...

      "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect,"(Matthew 24:24).

      Paul the apostle also mentioned the concept of there being a "false Jesus." Consider this...

      "For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully," (2 Corinthians 11:4).

      So, believing in Jesus is enough to be saved but you must be believing in the true Jesus, not a false one.

      Delete
    17. Who is the true Jesus?
      The Bible tells us there is only one God in all existence (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6,8; 45:5), and that God is a Trinity. The true Jesus, the Jesus that is taught in Scripture, is God and flesh (John 1:1, 14; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:8). He is the second person of the Trinity who became one of us. Jesus has two natures. He is both divine and human at the same time. We call this the hypostatic union. Jesus said...

      "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am, you will die in your sins," (John 8:24).

      It is important to believe that Jesus is the "I am," especially when we understand that when Moses was talking to God at the burning bush and asked God what his name was the Lord said, "I am that I am," (Exodus 3:14).

      So, believing in Jesus means you believe that he is God and flesh (Colossians 2:9). In addition, you must believe the gospel (Mark 1:15) that is defined as the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).

      What is true belief?
      Not only must you believe in the true Jesus, but you must also have true faith. In theology we talk about two kinds of faith: ascentia and fiducia. Ascentia is nothing more than mental acknowledgment. The devil, for example, acknowledges that God exists (James 2:19). But he does not have fiducia. That is, he does not have a trusting faith in God. It is fiducia that Christians are supposed to possess. We are to have a faithful independent trust in the work of Christ upon the cross who cleansed us from our sins. We don't just have mental acknowledgment that Jesus lived and died on the cross. We not only believe that, but we also trust in the sin sacrifice that Jesus made on that cross.

      Delete
    18. Salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone
      There are many groups that falsely teach that in order to be saved from your sins, you must believe in God and do good things and/or not do bad things. This is false because we are justified (declared righteous before God) by faith (Romans 3:28; 5:1), not by works (Romans 4:1-5; Ephesians 2:8-9).

      Conclusion
      Therefore, belief in Jesus is enough to be saved, but you must believe that Jesus is God and flesh, and your belief must be a trustful act of dependence upon Christ and his sacrifice on the cross. Only then is belief in Jesus sufficient to save.

  2. Can someone explain, what does the term "person" mean in terms of the trinity???

    ReplyDelete
  3. It means the Father isn't the Son and the Son isn't the Spirit but they are all GOD.

    GOD in the Bible is called all 3 but yet all 3 aren't the same as personhood. They all have their own identity but yet all 3 in their ESSENCE are God.

    The Father is called God, the Son is called God & the Spirit is called God all throuought the Bible yet the Father is NOT the Son and they both are NOT the Spirit but yet all 3 are GOD.

    This is why the Bible says it's a mystery. This is why it is very hard to accept for some people but it is a difficult concept to grasp. 3 yet 1. It's why the Jews rejected and STILL reject Jesus as God bc to them only the Father is God.

    Why I believe in the Trinity. Simple. Be cause the Bible tells me so. I may not understand it all but I do understand that the Father is God bc Jesus calls him God. I understand that Jesus is God bc he was worshiped as God, Thomas called him God, John said he was God, Jesus said he was God (which is why 3xs they tried to stone him), & Revelations shows him being worshipped in HEAVEN as God. I know the Holy Spirit is God bc the Bible refers to it as God. So I know God is one yet the Bible says those 3 are God. I'm just going to take the Bible let at its word and believe what it says even if I don't understand it fully.
