Following is an excerpt from “Deconstructing the three-in-one god doctrine thought process”
The controversy over the Godhead in Seventh-day Adventism at the present time is carried out on a number of levels – Biblical, Spirit of Prophecy, Historical and Rational – both individually, and with overlap. The principal of taking “the weight of evidence” (3T, p. 255) should apply to each of these, but in reality, a true understanding will harmonize all so called “anomalies” which lie outside this weight.
Fifty-Fifth General Conference Session, on July 11, 1990, 2:00 p.m., baptismal vow was revised, making it decidedly trinitarian. The vote was to revise the SDA Church Manual pg. 44 (1986 edition), “Baptismal Vow and Baptism,” section to read as follows “”1. Do you believe there is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons?”
Here recently I have been privileged to interact with a leading brother who believes in God the Father and His pre-incarnate only begotten Son. While we discussed many interesting things I noted, during our conversation, that he seemed to have a bit of disdain for the doxology. And here on facebook, just a few days ago, another brother issued this interesting response to an EGW quote that positively referenced the doxology.
This article is Part 2 of “What is the Doctrine of Trinty.” In part 1 I discussed what the doctrine of the trinity is according to Christendom. I hope that you were edified by that post. In case you missed it, click HERE.
Hopefully, with everyone on the same page (or at least in the same chapter! Lol!) regarding what this doctrine is and what it means in Christendom at large, we are prepared to move on to discuss the doctrine of the trinity within Seventh-day Adventism.
