The Most Important Blogposts in This Blog


This blogpost lists what I (subjectively) believe to be the most important blogposts in this blog. There are three sections. The first section is on the Deity of Christ. The second section is on the Trinity or the Plurality of God. The third section is on the Deity of the Holy Spirit. Each section has links to blogposts where the most important links (as I perceive it) are above, and with the lesser links below. For example, in the section on The Deity of Christ my blog "Identifying Jesus with Yahweh/Jehovah" (which is nearer the top) is much more important than my blogpost "The Spirit of Jesus" (which is near the bottom of the section).

Here's my main Resources in Defense of Trinitarianism

Here's a link to my blogpost where I've collected links to outside blogs where I've commented and interacted with others on the topic of the Trinity: Blog Comments on the Trinity

The Old Testament Witness to the Trinity by Anthony Rogers

 

Anthony  Rogers, my favorite debater for the Trinity, presents an ongoing video series on the Old Testament Witness to the Trinity. This is a topic that I think is VERY important and useful. When done properly, this answers and addresses many objections and objectors to Christianity. If you can prove the Trinity is taught in the Old Testament, it proves that Christianity is the heir of Judaism to Jews, disproves Islamic monotheism and Islamic objections to the Trinity, and presents evidence for the truth of Christianity that ought to make atheist reconsider whether Christianity might actually be true.

Two Debates Between Anthony Rogers and Shabir Ally

 

Christian apologist Anthony Rogers and Islamic apologist Shabir Ally did a back-to-back debate on Nov. 14, 2020. Anthony Rogers is my favorite debater in favor the doctrine of the Trinity, and Shabir Ally is arguably the best Muslim apologist out there. So, these debates are a must watch.

Did Eve Believe Her Firstborn Child Was the Messiah, God Himself?

 

One of my favorite passages that suggests that Jesus is divine is Gen. 4:1. I don't use it as a knockdown argument. It's not the first passage I go to in order to prove the full deity of Christ. But it's one of my favorite to use AFTER I've presented the other more solid evidences and arguments. Anthony Rogers does a great job presenting the evidence for why Gen. 4:1 suggests Jesus is fully God in his video series linked below. I consider Anthony Rogers the best living debater for the doctrine of the Trinity. See all his videos in his YouTube channel. Below is the link to his series on Gen. 4:1:
