The Trinity

March 3, 2010

To understand the Trinity

The mysteries of Divinity?

Athanasius saw the need

To exclude errors with his Creed.

It was impossible to define

Christ’s natures ‘human’ and ‘Divine’!

But ‘hypostaseis’ rules Arians out of court

‘Homoousios’ was  what Nicaea had taught.

We can faintly grasp the  roles and  relationship:

Father, Son, and Spirit in perfect fellowship.

Mystery too complex for theologians’ sagacity

Far beyond mere human capacity!

“Three persons in one Divine Essence”.

Stand in awe and worship in His presence!
