Philippians 2:9-10  9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under …

How to understand God’s trinity.

Is it possible to really understand the Holy Trinity? I have heard some theologians say it is just not possible for man to fully comprehend. God is infinitely wiser and more complex than we can fully understand. But he does want us to seek him, and ask him for wisdom and understanding, in things concerning …
