    #30: How to Explain the Trinity to a Child

    How to Explain the Trinity to a Child



    How do you explain the Trinity to a child? For that matter, how do you explain the Trinity to anyone?



    The first thing you need to know is that the Bible never uses the word “Trinity.” The word Trinity captures the various ways the Bible talks about the nature of God.



    Also, the Trinity is one of the essential and foundational doctrines of the Christian faith. You can’t have Christianity without it.



    I want to share a clear and memorable way to understand what the Bible teaches about the Trinity. I first came across this illustration from Norm Geisler.



    There is one what and three who’s. There is one God and three persons. The what refers to nature of God that all three persons share.



    The belief that there is only one God is clearly taught in Scripture. For example,



    “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! – Deuteronomy 6:4



    That there are three persons is also clearly taught in Scripture. We see all three persons described and at work in various passages, including 2 Cor. 13:14:



    “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.”



    The Father is not the Son, the Son is not the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is not the Father. Each is a distinct person. Three who’s.



    These are just two of many verses we could share. If the Bible claimed there was one God and three Gods, that would be a logical contradiction (and obviously false)....

    Will Your Kids Faith Survive YouTube?



    Worldview training is not optional for today’s teenagers.



    As a parent, pastor, educator or youth pastor you need to know that training in worldview, apologetics, and theology is good for the heart and soul of the next generation.

    I believe in the next generation. I love getting to spend time with them talking about the big questions of life and the everyday stuff of life.



    Gen Z has amazing potential and I think God will use them greatly. (Here's my interview with David Kinnaman of the Barna Group and Catalyst podcast on Gen Z)



    But they must be trained.



    Worldview training is not optional for today’s teenagers



    Here’s the bottom line—it’s exhausting to live a compartmentalized faith.



    Yet, many Christian teenagers are trying to do this impossible task every day. And it’s taking a toll on their soul and faith.



    The cultural messages are strong, and the challenges are unrelenting. Students are being shaped more by YouTube and Netflix than by what they are hearing on a typical Sunday morning.



    There’s a disconnect.



    Faith and feeling goes in one category of life on Sunday; reason and thinking goes in another category the rest of the week. That kind of faith will not survive....

    #27: Knowledge of God Matters

    Knowledge of God Matters.



    Which do you think shows up more in the Bible—faith or knowledge? If you do a concordance search, you will find something surprising. Knowledge (including knowing, know, etc.) shows up far more than faith does.



    Of course, without faith, it is impossible to please God, but knowledge is far more important to God than people realize. Listen to

    the words of the Lord as recorded by the prophet Jeremiah — words reminding us that knowledge of God is to be prized above all else...

    #26: Sincerity Is Not Enough

    Devotion and Sincerity are admirable. But when it comes to questions of reality, we know this is not enough.



    In our “follow your heart,” “You do you” and personalize everything to my own preferences world--this can be confusing.



    Every day through Spotify, Netflix, and YouTube--People are discipled by our culture to think that right and wrong, gender, sexuality, and spirituality are determined by what I—as an individual--choose to believe. That’s the height of freedom right? Wrong.



    Why? Because we all know that we’ve been sincerely wrong. Remember all those tests you took that your teacher had the audacity to count certain answers incorrect? Remember how sincere you were on the SAT and ACT? They didn’t care.



    Or think of it this way. I am not...

    #25: Why Ideas Are So Powerful

    Why Ideas Are So Powerful



    Ideas have always been and continue to be our Enemy’s favorite method of undermining the work of God.



    Dallas Willard comments on what happened in the garden of Eden:



    “Ideas and images are ... the primary focus of Satan’s efforts to defeat God’s purposes with and for humankind. When we are subject to his chosen ideas and images, he can take a nap or a holiday. Thus when he undertook to draw Eve away from God, he did not hit her with a stick, but with an idea. It was with the idea that God could not be trusted and that she must act on her own to secure her own well-being.”



    Two observations. First, both Adam and Eve fell for the bad idea that God really can’t be trusted. Second, once ideas take root, they have a mind of their own and

Morrow understands where our culture is, where it is heading and ideas leading us there. This podcast puts you upstream to what’s happening in our culture and is spoken in an easy to understand/ no-nonsense language.
