The Unbreakable Threefold Cord: A Defense of the Trinity (Part 15)

In this part we will answer one of Mr. Burch’s remaining “difficult questions” for trinitarians. This question has to do with the distinction in person and role between the Father and the Son. We will see that the Scriptures provide all the answers to this that we need if we […]


The Unbreakable Threefold Cord: A Defense of the Trinity (Part 14)

In this part we will continue to look at Mr. Burch’s “difficult questions” that raise the challenge of Jesus being human and yet divine. Three of these “difficult questions pertain to the fact that Jesus prayed to the Father; thus, we will answer these three together. Indeed, if we are […]


The Unbreakable Threefold Cord: A Defense of the Trinity (Part 13)

In this part we will continue to address the “difficult questions” that Mr. Burch poses in his book.

The Unbreakable Threefold Cord: A Defense of the Trinity (Part 9)

The Unbreakable Threefold Cord: A Defense of the Trinity (Part 8)

In this part, we will look at the challenges of Christ being subservient to the Father. Scripture clearly tells us that Christ was (and even still is) under the Father. He is subject to the Father. The Father has authority over Him. In fact, we are told that the Father […]
