The Word Made Flesh
Over the last few years, the doctrine of the incarnation has had a particularly powerful impact on my life and through a greater understanding of the doctrine I have experienced perhaps the single most significant transformation of my entire Christian journey.
Biblical Basis for the Trinity
While the word Trinity does not occur in scripture, the concept and idea of the Trinity does, if you have eyes to see and ears to hear. As long as this article is, even so it is only scratching the surface of an understanding that typically seems to take decades for most Christians to grow into in their understanding of God.

Theology of God
This article, designed to be delivered as a lecture and serve as a student reference, constitutes an overview of the basic Christian theology of God. It is not meant to be an exhaustive theological treatment, either in topics or in the depth of each topic, but rather an introduction to these doctrines. As an overview survey it focuses on what the orthodox view is, much more so than how it was arrived at, therefore it does not attempt a detailed justification of the various doctrines involved. All references to “scripture” refer to the Christian Bible.
