Our Trinitarian Brothers and Sisters in Christ

I have met maybe two Trinnies in my life who really thought that God is 3 persons as in three separate individuals-- maybe a couple more if you want to count my elementary school friends.

The Bible says, "Great is the mystery of Godliness...."

The word "rapture" is a convention to describe a biblical truth.
The word, "Trinity" fits in the same category.


For most folks, the difference is semantics.

This is just one of the reasons why I felt it best to leave the Apostolic movement-- I will not disrespect Apostolics who believe this way, but I can't really fellowship with them knowing that I just don't agree with them on this and several other issues.

Where I see the Grace of God, they dismiss that Grace as the work of satan, with their logic leading them to a dangerously judgmental place.

Trinity people don't believe Jesus is the father therefore they believe in more then one god. that means they don't serve the same god as me so they are not my brother or sister in christ

Re: Our Trinitarian Brothers and Sisters in Christ

I suspect Epley would not say this same thing in his church... He enjoys the liberties of a media sounding board.

Certainly, if someone said something like, "I have NO Trinity Brothers and Sisters in Christ. There are NO Trinitarians in Christ." in my church I would walk out.

They don't believe in more than 1 god.
