Who Ya Gonna Call?


Does your denomination require its ministers to affirm the doctrine of the Trinity?

What difference does it make?

In a series of blog posts, I'd like to consider what is at stake when we discard orthodox theology. I hope my readers will join me in this effort to "put wheels on" our proclamation.

The PCA does, absolutely. The Trinity is such a foundational doctrine, I do not know how one who denies it can truly called Christian.

Looking forward to it Chris. The ARP does...

The EPC does, absolutely. I'm with Kevin--I don't see how you can call yourself a Christian and deny the Trinity (or the resurrection, or the incarnation, or the atonement, or any of several other key doctrines).

David,

If you're not sure how one can play loose and fast with the Trinity and still maintain not only a Christian self-designation (one which Jesus would scorn - because Jesus hates Christians) but also keep endorsement as a Christian teaching presbyter, let me suggest you direct your questions to:
