“Trinity” vs. “Triunity”

The terms “Trinity” and “Triunity” are often used interchangeably to refer to the Christian doctrine of the three-in-one nature of God. However, there are subtle differences between the two terms.

The term “Trinity” comes from the Latin word “Trinitas,” which means “threefoldness.” It refers to the Christian belief that God exists as three distinct persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – who are united in one divine essence.

The term “Triunity,” on the other hand, is derived from the Greek word “Triados” (Τριάδος), which means “group of three.” It emphasizes the idea that the three persons of the Trinity are united in a shared nature or essence.

In practice, both terms are used to describe the same fundamental belief in the three-in-one nature of God. However, the term “Triunity” is less commonly used in everyday Christian language, and is often reserved for more technical or scholarly discussions of the doctrine of the Trinity. “Triunity” would be less likely than with the term “Trinity” to be misunderstood or misused in contexts outside of Christian theology to suggest the existence of multiple gods.

加爾文:連狗都會吠叫

—John Calvin 加爾文

“A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God’s truth is attacked and yet would remain silent.”

“當狗看見它的主人受到攻擊時,它會吠叫。如果我看到上帝的真理受到攻擊卻保持沉默,那我就是一個膽小鬼。”

傳福音者的兩種失敗

by 朱志山牧師

傳福音者的兩種失敗

第一種人:遇見 “不對的人” (不饑渴聽福音的人)——因為傳福音者沒有禱告、不受聖靈引導、以自我為中心、消滅聖靈的感動。

第二種人:傳不出福音,只是傳人的話、傳討好人的話、傳人的宗教、傳人的道理、心理學、成功神學、等等;福音講的是人的罪、罪所產生的很多問題、罪是一切問題的根源、解決罪的辦法就是基督。

你要帶給人的,是這個世界沒有的 (不應該是這個世界可以給的,不是這個世界的醫生、心理學、或者任何的宗教能夠解決的),也是他的靈魂沒有的;如果人沒有,是要滅亡的。直到他明白,你把基督傳講的時候,他才會扎心。這不是人的技巧,但人一定要預備。
