The Doctrine of the Trinity is notoriously complicated. That is acknowledged even by many of its adherents. Dr. Joe Martin of Atlanta Bible College tells us that the Trinity is confusing because it originated with post-biblical gentile Christians who were effectively “reinventing” the God of the Bible. Dr. Martin indicates that God is not three different ones but is eternally one and only one – the Father himself and that Jesus is not God but is the Christ of God.
