God’s Creation reflects His Trinitarian nature. The three-fold nature of the Universe.

As a Young Earth Creationist, I have many discussions with other Christians about the age of God’s creation.  In this blog, I’m putting the age of the Creation discussion aside to highlight another characteristic of the Universe, its three-fold nature. The Christian doctrine of the Trinity, God in three persons, was defined in the Nicene Creed (325 A.D.). (The following citation is from Wikipedia) “The Ante-Nicene Fathers asserted Christ’s deity and spoke of “Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,” even though their language is not that of the traditional doctrine as formalized in the fourth century. Trinitarians view these as elements of the codified doctrine. Ignatius of Antioch provides early support for the Trinity around 110 A.D., exhorting obedience to “Christ, and to the Father, and to the Spirit.”   Justin Martyr (AD 100–165) also writes, “in the name of God, the Father, and Lord of the universe, and of our Savior Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Spirit.” The first of the early church fathers to be recorded using the word “Trinity” was Theophilus of Antioch writing in the late 2nd century. He defines the Trinity as God, His Word (Logos) and His Wisdom (Sophia) in the context of a discussion of the first three days of creation. The first defense of the doctrine of the Trinity was in the early 3rd century by the church father, Tertullian. He explicitly defined the Trinity as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and defended Trinitarian theology.  St. Justin and Clement of Alexandra used the Trinity in their doxologies and St. Basil likewise, in the evening lighting of lamps.

The Trinitarian nature of God is reflected in both His Word and Creation.  For example, in his Word, 3-in-1 is shown in both Testaments: Isaiah – “Holy, Holy, Holy…”  Matthew – “in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit…”  Creation is attributed to the action of all three members of the Trinity.  In Scripture Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all described as Creator.  The whole creation is constructed in 3-in1 components.  Before you look at the table below, how many can you name?  If you come up with a new one, that I don’t have listed send it to me at charlie@sixdaycreation.com.  Happy Year to all my readers.

One thought on “God’s Creation reflects His Trinitarian nature. The three-fold nature of the Universe.

  1. How about Creator, Sustainer, and Destroyer?

    The Council of Nicea reaffirmed what had been believed by Christians from New Testament times. The main catalyst for calling the council in 325 was the spreading heresy of Arias (a Jew). This terrible heresy that denied Christ’s divinity was not finally extinguished for another 300 hundred years in Europe. St. Althanasius of Egypt was a major figure at the Council.
