...THE TRINITY DEFINED First, the definition of the Trinity. What do we mean by the Trinity? We mean three Persons in the Godhead. There are two extremes that we need to avoid. They are like Scylla on one hand and Charybdis on the other, and we need to sail our little bark between them. There is the danger, when speaking of the Trinity, to have in mind three Gods. That is a false concept. There is the other extreme of going to the opposite side by holding that the one God has expressed Himself in three different ways, which is also false. This error is known as modal-Trinitarianism, and was thoroughly answered by some of the giants of the Faith whom we have already named.
