The purpose of this blog is to “contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3), especially by defending the first article of the Christian faith, that there is one God, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 8:6), against the attacks made on it by various heresies, and especially those of modalism and semi-modalism. I hope to raise awareness of the way the fathers of the ante-nicene and nicene era articulated the doctrine of the Trinity, and to point out more recent departures from this articulation. My goal in all this is to glorify God, and help His people better understand these matters.
I believe the Nicene Creed, in both its original and updated forms (that is, of 325 and 381) to accurately represent what scripture reveals. I also believe that every point of doctrine must be proved from the holy scriptures before it is believed, since from God alone can we know with absolute certainty what is true regarding matters of doctrine.

“Neither shall light ever be darkness as long as light exists, nor shall the truth of the things pertaining to us be controverted. For truth is that than which nothing is more powerful. Every one who might speak the truth, and speaks it not, shall be judged by God.” -Justin Martyr
