      The Trinity is indeed a revealed Divine mystery.

      Salvation? Works? Works & Grace? or Grace alone?

        Farouk - and yet, without the Grace of God, we would not be able to produce works.....not even one

        Up to a point I agree; but the grace of God - His unmerited favor in the Gospel - is particularly revealed as something which cannot be viewed in the same light as works: Romans 3.24 speaks of being 'justified freely by His grace'. One iota of human merit added to the equation of justification, and the picture is altered disastrously.

        Indeed. However, Paul was making a distinction between Chrisitanity and his old religion of Judaism and one of the defining characteristics of this new covenant was an emphasis on God’s power rather than man’s participation.........it was a message that really spoke to new Chrisitans who were raised in the Jewish religion. I believe we over emphasize his point today

      “The LORD spoke with Moses face to face" Jesus says "no man has seen the Father" Solution? Moses spoke to the Son.

        “Face to face” is a qualitative description of their relationship not literal

        After wrestling with God it says; “So Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, “I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been preserved.”” (Genesis 32:30) (NASB95)

        The New Testament is full of God in Three Persons.
