  Books in Review: A Trinitarian Synthesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
He boldly integrates this insight with his trinitarian theology by conceiving of the biblical narrative as "the final truth of God’s own reality" in the mutual relations of God the Father, His incarnate Son, and the eschatological accomplishment of their communion by the Spirit.
The emphasis on mutuality in the interaction of the trinitarian persons offers a corrective to the traditional tendency to conceive of them only in terms of relations of origin, which is to say in terms of the dependence of Son and Spirit upon the Father.
It is certainly true that the trinitarian God in the history of salvation is the same God as in His eternal life.

 Why be a Trinitarian?
Trinitarians believe that Jesus' communication with the Father, namely His prayers, compels us to conclude that the deity of the Father and the deity of the Son are distinct persons in the Godhead.
Trinitarian theology has to admit that a whole other person in the Godhead showed up on the scene in flesh, who is personally distinct from the personal God revealed in the OT.
While the Trinitarian model can account for the distinctions in the NT, it cannot account for the lack of such in the OT, nor the failure of the OT to mention "God the Son" (other than in prophetic passages), nor the non-existence of the Father-Son terminology before the incarnation.

 THREE DIVINE ONENESSES: Trinitarian oneness, Christological oneness, Christian oneness
Trinitarian oneness explains the oneness of the three persons of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the same Being of the one God.
Whereas the Trinitarian oneness is that of "one God," and the Christological oneness is that of "one Lord," the Christian oneness is that of "one spirit." Each is unique and expressive of a particular kind of oneness.
These three divine oneness, the Trinitarian oneness, the Christological oneness, and the Christian oneness, are integrally connected in the unity of the "one gospel," the singular "good news" of God for man. At the same time, there are definite distinctions in each of the three onenesses that must be maintained and safeguarded.

 The Unitarian/Trinitarian Wars (No. 268)
Trinitarians incorrectly and dishonestly label the creed as Arianism, to give the impression that their doctrine is older and this doctrine originated with Arius in the fourth century.
Trinitarians accuse Arians of holding that the Spirit was a creation of the son, when in fact that is the doctrine of Filioque advanced from the Council of Toledo, by the Catholics themselves in the sixth century.
The church that settled from Jerusalem in Armenia was not Trinitarian Diphysite and it was Sabbath-keeping.

 THE EVOLUTION OF TRINITARIAN THEOLOGY
Contemporary renovation of Trinitarian theology is based on the overcoming of deist and rationalist positions, as well as their influence on the theological way of thinking regarding God.
The principle of Rahner’s Trinitarian theology derives from the fully conscious affirmation of all that took place during the history of redemption: The economic Trinity is the immanent Trinity and vice versa.
Deeply-rooted in the gratuity of full and eternal Trinitarian Love, the created Being as such may be observed as a real gift, opening the way, for example, to a ontology of donation that would allow the full exploitation of the free gestures with which mankind writes his history in relation to the gift of Being.

 History: Trinitarian Priests School (English)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Thanks to this couple, and the support of many other people, the city's first Trinitarian religious community was established in a house on the corner of Coronel Verdugo and Linea, and on March 20th, 1898, holy Mass was celebrated in the Parrish Church to commemorate the occasion.
Almost a year after the establishment of the community, and with the Cuban War of Independence ended, the Trinitarians were free of their hospital duties and were now able to start thinking about establishing a real school, a necessity among a population that was always interested in enriching its cultural environment.
Elvira de Rojas, wife of the Trinitarians' meritorious physician, Dr. Francisco Oti de la Fé, in celebrating the Golden Anniversary of their organization in 1956, commemorated the event by donating the marble altars for the side wings of the chapel.

 Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society: Trinitarian theology of Jonathan Edwards: An investigation of charges ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The study of the Trinitarian theology of Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) remains significant at the outset of the twenty-first century, for it is in his Trinitarianism that one clearly observes Edwards's affinity for philosophical speculation merging with traditional Reformed orthodoxy that he never abandoned.
It is the contention of this paper that the Trinitarian theology of Jonathan Edwards is certainly a departure from the typical Puritan and Reformed way of speaking of the divine mystery, but that it is at the same time entirely orthodox.
However, Gerstner's conclusion is overly hasty in that, while the substance of Edwards's Trinitarianism is consistent with typical Reformed doctrine, his presentation is clearly not that of the standard Reformed approach.

 Trinity - God, Father, Son, Holy Spirit - Trinitarian, Tritheism, Triadic - Three Persons - Godhead
While the term trinity does not appear in Scripture, the trinitarian structure appears throughout the New Testament to affirm that God Himself is manifested through Jesus Christ by means of the Spirit.
Paul was calling attention to the trinitarian consciousness, not in the initial work of salvation which has already been accomplished at Corinth, but in the sustaining work that enables divisive Christians to achieve unity.
The consistent trinitarian expression is not a formulation of the doctrine, as such, but reveals an experiencing of God’s persistent self-revelation.

 Christian Century: Being trinitarian: the shape of saving faith - Cover Story
GLORY BE to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit." Such trinitarian language has never been free of controversy.
Trinitarian theology makes sense as a continuation of a biblically initiated exploration into experiences of redemption and into an apprehension of God that is part of saving faith.
Affirming that the power of reality who bears ill things, in whom all things come to be and in whom all things hold together is the good and faithful redeemer whose fundamental purpose is new life and true life leads us to the affirmation that God is faithful.

 THE TRINITARIAN WAY
We Trinitarian lay persons, as members of the Church, though we live in a variety of states of life, are called to be witnesses and fashioners of the love, acceptance, union, collaboration and dialogue which exist at the very heart of the Trinity.
We unite ourselves to Christ, present in the Liturgy, especially in the Eucharist, in which the glorification of the Trinity and the redemption of humankind are effected; and in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the encounter of the sinner with the merciful Father.
The Trinitarian Laity are organized at the local, regional, national and international levels, thus favoring the spirit of communion as a family and clearly manifesting the unity within the plurality.

I have been discomforted by various preachers who seem to bitterly attack Trinitarian believers, saying that they are idolatrers and damned to hell.
I do believe that Trinitarianism is false doctrine, but shouting against it does not accomplish anything.
Trinitarians do not claim to believe in three separate Gods, but in one God (substance) consisting of three distinct, but unified persons.

 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Man Is Still Enslaved in Many Ways
It is therefore appropriate that the members of the Trinitarian family, firmly rooted in the project of their founder, St John of Matha, and living the same charism, should gather in a "General Assembly" to reflect together on their common problems and possible solutions on the threshold of the new millennium.
For eight centuries, through a variety of historical events, the Trinitarian family, motivated and enlivened by its original charism centred on the glorification of the Trinity and on dedication to human redemption, grew and spread in the Church and the world through the flourishing of various institutes and lay associations.
The Trinitarian family will therefore do well to listen to the entreaties of those ensnared by modern forms of slavery so that concrete ways may be found to answer their deeply felt expectations.

 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Art Of Trinitarian Prayer, The
To the extent that prayer was the very core of the most intimate life of the Lord, who was always turned toward the Father in accord with the interior anointing of the Spirit, it constituted the wisdom of his speech, the strength of his actions, the overflowing fount of his loving.
It is again a Trinitarian mysticism that starts from faith and becomes experience: "We who have received the grace of believing in Christ, the revealer of the Father and the Saviour of the world, have a duty to show to what depths the relationship with Christ can lead".
We are offered this beautiful Trinitarian description of this mysticism as the culmination of the journey of prayer: "It shows how prayer can progress, as a genuine dialogue of love, to the point of rendering the person wholly possessed by the divine Beloved, vibrating at the Spirit's touch, resting filially within the Father's heart.

These two were in hot theological dispute for a period of six years - from 318 A.D. through 325 A.D. Arius, the disciple of Lucian of Antioch, the greatest critic of the Trinitarian doctrine, strongly advocated the view that God is absolutely One and alone Eternal[6].

 New Covenant Church of God: 227. Trinitarian Dogma - The Very "MYSTERY BABYLON" of Revelation 17:5!   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The expression, "trinitarian dogma," refers to the classical "Christian" doctrines of the "trinity" or "triunity of God" and the "incarnation" (of God) or "deity" of the Messiah, which (doctrines) normally go together and constitute the core doctrines of most Christian denominations today, including Messianic Judaism.
The relatively small number of sheep who choose to question trinitarian dogma are normally easily reined in by trinitarian membership requirements, which are used as a kind of fence to keep the sheep from breaking out of the trinitarian corral.
Another discrepancy between scripture and trinitarian dogma is the insistence that one must believe that the Holy Spirit is a "Person" or at least has a measure of autonomy in the Godhead such that God is to be regarded as triune, rather than just dual, not to mention one.

 Berith.org -- Essays -- Zen: A Trinitarian Critique
Trinitarianism is the heart of the Christian confession of faith, and, therefore also, the heart of the Christian worldview.
If we know that nothing can be more important for our understanding of Christianity itself than a deep appreciation of the meaning of the Trinity, then clearly we should also be persuaded that no truth could be more important for a Christian approach to the comparative study of religion.
From a Trinitarian perspective, the most obvious philosophical problem of monism is its inability to arrive at a concrete particular.

 Process Philosophy and Trinitarian Theology
In the first part I will lay out briefly the Trinitarian theology of Moltmann, Mühlen and Jüngel and then indicate my differences with them as to the strict consistency of their process understanding of the Trinity.
What seems to be lacking in his exposition is an explicit equation between process in God and community, such that the community life of the three divine persons is understood to be a process, partly identical with the process of human history but also partly distinct from it.
Only thus, as I see it, can one be faithful to both traditional Trinitarian theology and to process thought (at least in an extended sense of the term).

The Trinitarian Analogy in Gregory Palamas’ Capita 150:
The trinitarian image of God in humans grounds a trinitarian theology predicated on the analogy of our intellectual processions.
Gregory’s movement from the discussion of the divine nature as transcendent goodness to the analogy for the processions of the Son and of the Spirit involves an interplay between the notions of God as good and as mind.

 “American Pre-emption, Trinitarian and Nontrinitarian War, and Justice”   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
But in nontrinitarian war (where the distinction between combatant and noncombatant is often blurred) this reliance on drill for creating decisive fire and maneuver, or the use of even the most precise weaponry, cannot succeed for achieving “decisive victory.
There must then exist both different tactics for trinitarian and nontrinitarian wars as well as differing prescriptive guidelines for the employment of fires, prescriptions most often captured in the form of Rules of Engagement (ROE).
Within trinitarian war, this model of justice agrees with Walzer’s solution to the central dilemma of war.

 Trinitarian Worship   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
While the word "trinity" appears nowhere in the Bible, a basic trinitarian formula of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is found in several places, including Matt.
The emphasis in trinitarian worship is not on ourselves and our own action; it is on Christ and Christ's action on our behalf.
This use of language is the most honest gauge in judging how trinitarian our functional definition of worship is. It is also the most difficult area of language to reform.

 Theology Today - Vol 52, No. 3 - October 1995 - ARTICLE - Trinitarian Feminism: Elizabeth Johnson's Wisdom Christology
Elizabeth Johnson's work can be seen as part of an identifiable and growing genre within the wide snectrum of feminist theologies that could be called "trinitarian feminism"-a development that holds promise, I think, for the successful integration of feminist insights into the regular preaching and teaching of the churches.
Johnson and those who may be seen beside her as trinitarian feminists have not drawn back from the important criticism offered to the theological tradition by feminist theology in general.
Her trinitarian ethic of community, equality, and solidarity would be stronger if she were to "name the plague" beyond the plague of sexism.
