    In my list of beliefs I call heretical on another thread I included: Denying the doctrine of the Trinity [one GOD, three persons]. Upon reflection I believe that without the Triune Godhead there would be no Salvation.

    It is God the Father who foreknew and chose a people to be His own before the foundation of the world [Ephesians 1:4].

    It is God the Son who agrees to humble Himself, take upon Himself the form of man, and die on the cross to pay the penalty for the sins of those whom the Father has chosen to salvation so that none are lost [John 17; Philippians 2:6-10].

    It is God the Holy Spirit who agrees to apply the work of the Son to those chosen by God the Father and who regenerates and effectually calls those whom God the Father has chosen unto salvation [John 6: 37, 44; Ephesians 2:1-10].

    Just curious OR (or anyone else); Aside from the Phillipian passage cited, what are some other prominent passages you would use to show the eternal covenant between the Father and the Son?

    Haven't looked long and hard but I believe much of John 17 should be included, also Hebrews 13:20 and Titus 1:2. Properly interpreted Ephesians 1:3-7 is certainly indicative of an eternal covenant, perhaps much of the 1st and 2nd Chapters.
