This 2011 book is one of a series of four addressing criticisms by Norman Geisler and Ron Rhodes. This book addresses various points of truth concerning the Divine Trinity, including:

  • the use of the word persons to describe the Three of the Godhead;
  • the coinherence and co-working of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit;
  • whether Isaiah 9:6 prophesies that the “Son given to us” is the “Eternal Father”; and
  • whether the Apostle Paul said the Lord Jesus Christ is the Spirit in 2 Corinthians 3:17.

This article refutes the false accusation of Norman Geisler and Ron Rhodes that the local churches teach patripassianism. It shows their error in asserting that affirming the involvement of the Father in the Son’s work is equivalent to of patripassianism and presents both the biblical record and a number of respected scholars that support the principle of the co-working of the Father and the Son (see also Scholars Who Affirm the Working Together of the Three of the Divine Trinity).
