Who Does God Pray To? Trinity Language Complicates Simple Truth

Who Does God Pray To? Trinity Language Complicates Simple Truth
Gerald Ihle

This laity-friendly text by Methodist pastor Gerald H. Ihle points out that the doctrine of the Trinity was not part of first-century Christianity, but rather came from new language embedded later into Church tradition. We need to question the authority of this tradition, not that of the Biblical witness. Peter was complimented by Jesus for understanding who Jesus really was. He told him, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” He did not say, “Jesus is God.” He is God’s Son. Christians over the years have defended the primacy of Biblical scripture, yet they have allowed the authority of church tradition to supersede Biblical authority, falsely believing that tradition was identical to the Biblical witness. Perfect for adult Bible-study groups.

The author questions details in the historical formation of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity–influenced too much and enforced by the powerful political pressures of Christian emperors of the Roman empire and by the religious pressures of church leaders. These church leaders were intent on controlling theology and maintaining a powerful church and state alliance that allowed for centuries of shameful religious intolerance and persecution in the name of Christ. 148 pp.

(also published in Indonesia) and See How Jesus Used Power! A graduate of Moravian College and The Theological School at Drew University, Jerry also does photography exhibits.
