Failure to properly understand Trinity leads to 'heresy,' warns theologian

By The Christian Post

A failure to properly understand the Trinity can result in dangerous, non-Christian understandings and even heresy, a theologian said.

In a recent video posted on The Gospel Coalition website, Fred Sanders, professor of theology at Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University, said the doctrine of the Trinity — the belief that there is one God who eternally exists as three distinct Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — is “really, really important.”

“I think the reason that so many heresies that come up anywhere in Christian thought can be traced back to problems with the doctrine of the Trinity, is that the doctrine of the Trinity is the Christian answer to the question, ‘Who is God?’”
