I'm having a hard time with the issue of the Trinity in terms of finding support for this concept in the
Bible. I am searching your website and other sites to get a handle on this doctrine. I
need to be well versed on this issue as I am in a discussion with two Jehovah's Witnesses where we will be addressing the
explanation of the Triune nature of God. All of the other issues I can address and I'm doing okay,
but the Trinity has got me a little stumped right now. Can you help me?
I'm so glad you wrote!! I can imagine why you would be having a hard time with the concept of the Trinity if Jehovah's Witnesses are talking to you. And that's why I'm doubly glad you have access to the Probe website to help you be grounded in the truth, as well as equipping yourself to answer their faulty arguments.
The scriptural support FOR the Trinity is so strong that you have to work hard at finding proof texts AGAINST the Trinity! We have several excellent articles on the Trinity, written by a staff member (Pat Zukeran) who has extensive experience in dialoging with Witnesses. Start here:
Why We Should Believe in the Trinity
then go here:
Jehovah's Witnesses and the Trinity
If you have further questions, Pat is available to answer them through e-mail or telephone.
I am sending this along with a prayer that the Lord will show you clearly and with the peace that accompanies His truth, His triune nature. (Consider, for example, the baptism of the Lord Jesus, where all three persons of the Godhead are present: the Father speaking His approval of the Son from heaven, the Son standing in the water in human flesh, and the Holy Spirit appearing as a dove Who came upon Jesus.)
