The Trinity Defined

Postby Itiswrittenkjv1611 » Thu Jan 19, 2017 7:52 pm

1 Essence/Being 3 persons

Essence

Essence is a set of characteristics/properties necessary to the thing being described

Examples:

Triangle
-Must have 3 sides
-3 Corners or angles
-The sum of angles must be 180 degrees

Human
-Must have ratioinality
-Skin color (accidental/not necessary)


Essence - What, Object, It, Objective center of essential properties
Person - Who, Subject, I, Subjective center of intentionality and volitionality

The Trinity is not contradictory

The law of non-contradiction states that they must affirm and deny
-The same thing
-At the same time
- In the same sense (relationship)

God is only one in relation to essence.
God is 3 in relation to His persons.
