Alford Scriptural Doctrine of the Trinity

This is a 17 page examination and defense of the doctrine of the Trinity. Alford examines Christ’s humanity as well as his divinity. Specifically Alford establishes Christ’s divine traits (omniscience, wisdom, omnipresence, immutability, omnipotence, equality with the Father, deity), and then he examines issues of the trinity, plurality of the Godhead, number of persons in the Godhead, the Father-Son-Spirit are one God. Then Alford examines the consequences of this doctrine, specifically in the light of the Unitarian’s denial of it, and finally Alford examines criticisms of the Trinity.

The Trinity

What is the Trinity? It is a divine revelation of God about Himself, both simple yet very deep and difficult to understand. There is only one God, but that one God exists in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Moreover, this three-in-one essence of God is absolutely necessary. God is love. Yet what is love? God is the selfless sacrifice of one person in sharing his possessions, his energies, his attention, his life, for another person. In order for love to exist, there must be three essential parts: he who does the loving, he who receives the loving, and the loving or evidence of the favor of one to the other. The Father loves, the Son is the beloved, and the Holy Spirit is the evidence of the Father's love to his Son.
