One of the passions and emphases of my ministry, since the Lord began to lead me into Bible teaching in 1978, has been in the area of the fundamentals of the faith, and in no area have I encountered as much weakness as in the set of Biblical doctrines that surround the concept of the nature of God, a Biblical concept with the theological nickname, The Trinity. I spoke at a BSU Disciple Now weekend some years ago, and I gave an impromptu survey that I have repeated many times over the years, always with similar results. Now, mind you, these were mainly SBC-raised kids (I asked them, and over 90% were, out of a crowd of 250 or so). When I asked the question, "Can you remember a sermon in your church on the Trinity?", Ten hands were raised. [By the way, when I asked, "Have you ever heard a sermon on the doctrine of Justification by Faith?", I got even less response.] Now, maybe none of these kids had paid any attention, but they all recalled hundreds of "salvation messages," and all recalled sermons on stewardship and foreign missions, but not on the Trinity, or, by the way, on the Deity of Jesus. As my favorite sermon on the topic outlines, the fact that God is Triune means He is a God of Relationship; the fact that Jesus is the God-Man means that through Him we have Representation, Reconciliation and Redemption, and because the Comforter is God and is a Person, we have Regeneration and Indwelling (could not figure out an "R" there...). That all seems fairly important to me; I believe that without all this, we would have no faith as once delivered to the saints. The questions I have are: is this a widespread problem? and If so, what can we do about it?
