One of the central doctrines common to almost all modern denominations of Christianity is that of the Trinity. The Trinity is the idea that God exists in three persons, yet is still one. However, nowhere in the Bible does the word “Trinity” appear. Does that mean - assuming the Bible is correct - that this doctrine is wrong? Perhaps, but the Bible doesn’t mention zebras, either, and they most certainly exist.
When I was a kid, my parents would send me to church camp almost every day. At the camp, we did typical campy-type stuff like singing around campfires or listen to stories. Of course, being a church camp, these songs and stories were often biblical and faith-based.
It might strike you odd that I’m libertarian - that is, I want government as small and harmless as possible - and that my political view is rooted deeply in my faith. You see, I believe God gave us a gift, a gift so very precious that we have created a government to protect it. The government has often mishandled this gift, and so have we. We don’t really deserve this gift, but we have it.
