The Reclaiming the Mind Ministries site Parchment and Pen is hosting an online debate on the Christian doctrine of the trinity, the claim that God is three persons and yet one substance. The debate began on April 11 and will take place over six weeks. Defending the traditional trinitarian position is apologist Rob Bowman, author of books such as Putting Jesus in His Place: The Case for the Deity of Christ and 20 Compelling Evidences That God Exists. His opponent is David Burke, a Christadelphian heading up the Christadelphian forums.
If you’ve given much thought to the doctrine of the trinity and the nature and identity of Jesus, you’re bound to find the exchange a worthwhile one.
Here is the format and arguments that have been posted so far (I’ll update when the posts become available):
Week 1: Scripture and the nature of God.
Week 2: The person of Jesus Christ.
Week 3: The person of Jesus Christ (responses and further arguments).
Week 4: The Holy Spirit.
Week 5 (begins May 9): Theological views of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Week 6 (begins May 16): Closing statements.
