The Trinity – Controversial Concept Derived from Ideas in the Bible

Known as the author of the Behind the Faith series of books, Dr. Antonio M. Wilson has undertaken extensive research on theological issues seldom addressed by Christian clergy. Fundamental questions he addresses range from the possibility of sin existing in Heaven to the potential of someone who was with Jesus in Heaven being sent to Hell. Dr. Antonio M. Wilson has also contributed to books such as “Christianity – The Holy Trinity Controversy.”

The concept of the Trinity in Christian theology revolves around God who is the creator of the universe but exist in a God head that is comprised of the Holy Spirit, Jesus the Christ (the Son), and God (the Father). The concept is not directly found in the Bible but is thought to have originated with Tertullian, an early Christian leader who wrote in Latin in the 1st-2nd centuries AD. The doctrine was employed as a way of unifying passages within the Bible that instruct that each of these aspects of God operate independently in three separate persons but collectively is “fully God.”

The idea of a Trinity has long been controversial, with belief systems such as Unitarian Universalism and Mormonism denying its existence, as it does not stem directly from the Bible and is not compatible for them with the doctrine of monotheism.
