Today Fred Sanders, professor of theology at the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University, posted an excellent article on the Crossway blog entitled 5 Myths About the Trinity. Here are the five myths he addresses:
Myth #1: It’s only for theology experts.
Myth #2: It isn’t really in the Bible; the early church made it up.
Myth #3: It’s irrelevant to the spiritual life.
Myth #4: It is illogical.
Myth #5: Analogies for the Trinity matter a lot and will help us understand it more deeply.
I highly recommend taking time to read the article to see how Dr. Sanders addresses each of these issues.

I am currently serving as the primary teaching elder of Immanuel Baptist Church in Bloomington, Illinois, where I have been since 1993. My fellow-elders are George Drye, Brent Flint, and Ben Murphy, each of whom also resides in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Together, by the grace of God, we make up one pretty good pastor! I received my B.A. in Biblical Studies from Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University) in Columbia, South Carolina. And I received my M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. And, by the way, my last name has a silent 'h' and is pronounced 'troop.'
