Was Jesus the Jewish Messiah?

In numerous of my previous posts, I have explained why Jesus is not God and have argued against the Trinity. However, in this post, I want to focus on the Christian claim of the Messiahship of Jesus of Nazareth. Of course, religious Jews deny this. In this post, I do not wish to promote Judaism,Continue reading “Was Jesus the Jewish Messiah?”

A Critical Analysis of the Hypostatic Union

In this post, I will offer a critique of the traditional Christian doctrine of the hypostatic union of Christ’s person. This doctrine asserts that Christ was both truly God and truly man. The orthodox position on the relation of the two natures in Christ has historically been that Christ was not two persons but ratherContinue reading “A Critical Analysis of the Hypostatic Union”

A Historical Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity

So far, I have given four analyses of the doctrine of the Trinity—logical, philosophical, theological, and biblical. I will now give a historical analysis of this doctrine which has for so long been the central understanding of God’s nature in mainstream Christianity and in the more dominant churches. In this post, I wish to presentContinue reading “A Historical Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity”

Free Will in Arminianism, Molinism, and Provisionism

In a previous post, I gave a critique on the Calvinist and Lutheran views of determinism and also discussed the Calvinist and Lutheran views of free will. Of course, these are not the only two views on determinism and free will within Protestant Christianity. There are at least three other major views held within Protestantism,Continue reading “Free Will in Arminianism, Molinism, and Provisionism”

A Critique of Calvinist and Lutheran Views on Determinism

I also have a podcast episode covering the content of this blog post. If you would like to listen to it, you can do so here: I have addressed divine determinism briefly before in a post on free will, but I believe that this subject is worth further discussion. Here, I will give a critiqueContinue reading “A Critique of Calvinist and Lutheran Views on Determinism”

A Theological Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity

Thus far, I have focused primarily on the philosophy of the Trinity. However, the Trinity is not merely a philosophical concept: it is also a theological one. Here, I wish to analyze the doctrine through a theological lens and to see whether the Trinity is theologically necessary for the Christian religion. THEOLOGY PROPER Theology proper,Continue reading “A Theological Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity”

A Philosophical Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity

The doctrine of the Trinity is described as three persons of one essence. I discussed in my previous post that it is logically incoherent to say that three can be God but not also be each other, since this would go against the Transitive Law: if a (the Father), b (the Son), and c (theContinue reading “A Philosophical Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity”

A Logical Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity

The doctrine of the Trinity has become one of the most central doctrines in Christian theology. However, it is also one of the doctrines that receives the most criticism. Some Christians seem to agree with these criticisms against the doctrine. The most common strain of nontrinitarian Christianity is Unitarianism, which teaches that God is oneContinue reading “A Logical Analysis of the Doctrine of the Trinity”
