1 Biblical Proof of the Existence of the Godhead
1.1 Defining trinity
The doctrine of the Godhead can be summarized in a single quote from the prophet Hinckley: “They [the Godhead] are distinct beings, but they are one in purpose and effort. They are united as one in bringing to pass the grand, divine plan for the salvation and exaltation of the children of God… It is that perfect unity between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost that binds these three into the oneness of the divine Godhead.” (Hinckley, 1998, 2.)
The word ‘trinity’ is not found in the bible, but the concept does. The term is a theological word Christians use to describe the triune God—three coexistent, co-eternal Persons who make up God. That is, God is a trinity of persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. However, the Father is not the same person as the Son; the Son is not the same person as the Holy Spirit; and the Holy Spirit is not the same person as the Father. They are three distinct persons; yet, they are all one God. Figure 1 attached explains this concept.
1.2 Biblical proof
The Bible teaches the Trinitarian concept of one God existing as three persons. The Bible does not teach polytheism, which says that there are three separate Gods called the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Biblical evidence supporting the doctrine of trinity include:-
1. Biblical Monotheism- There is one God- There is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5). This clearly refutes
