I grew up in the Seventh-day Adventist Church which, today, is staunchly Trintarian. I was taught to believe that God had guided the founders of that church and that the church was continuing to preach the same message. The moment of crisis came to me when I learned that the Seventh-day Adventist Church had been very Anti-Trinitarian during the lifetime of the church pioneers. The church was heavily criticized by mainstream Christians for leading people away from the Trinity. It did not become Trinitarian until well into the 20th Century. This led me to seriously look at the evidence for and against the Trinity for the first time. Obviously, there are many texts that can be interpreted in a Trinitarian way. I needed to establish if the Trinity was something that could be drawn out of Scripture or if it needed to be read into the texts. I decided to put all of my preconceptions aside and study everything in an objective manner and not accept anything that couldn't be clearly established from Scripture. This book is the result of that study.
Send your heart on an adventurous journey of spiritual discovery. As you freely jump from one surprising subject to another, you'll find yourself thinking about your relationship with God. Other times you'll find poems, pearls of wisdom, or short stories that are there because God inspired them. Realize the pleasure of thinking about your relationship with God, saying "awe" once or twice, and finding snippets of smiles. Let this little book draw you closer to God.
