The Theological Debate with T. Basil Sturrup.
Do Seventh-day Adventist Believe In The Trinity?
Several months ago I saw the necessity to write a weekly article in the News Paper to help persons understand the doctrines of the Bible as taught by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The fact is, after more than one hundred years of existence in the Bahamas, there are members of this Church, as well as persons in the wider community who are still not aware of what Seventh-day Adventist believe.
Many persons know that this Church is a main stream Christian denomination. However, there are others who see this organization as a cult, or a group of believers who are still under the Old Covenant. As you read this weekly column I invite you to come to your own conclusions on the matter.
I chose to title my weekly article The Theological Debate, because after presenting a doctrine of the church, I will publish questions from the readership along with answers to those questions based solely on the Biblical text. The first subject will be THE TRINITY. This theological discussion is still as interesting today as it was a thousand years ago. There are some Christian denominations who argue in favor of the Trinity, while there are those who do not accept this doctrine as biblical.
Let me state from the outset that the Seventh-day Adventist Church believes in the doctrine of the Trinity, (otherwise referred to as the Godhead, or God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit). For the next few weeks there will be a series of short articles on this subject and I encourage you to follow me as we engage in what I hope to be an informative and productive Journey together.
