  • Note is explaining the doctrine of the Trinity, refer to Wayne Grudem (Bible Doctrine, 1999) - where he correctly points out - 'ontological (being) unity and economic (role) subordination'. That is one in being, in purpose in nature; but subordinate in terms of roles for instance the The Father send the Son, the Son never send the Father. Also the Father is God for us, the Son is God with us and hallelujah the Spirit is God in us. Ittai the Tishbite
