The Trinity

Despite the rumors, theological development of the Trinity hasn't ceased. Progress continues. In the 20th century, the work of Van Til helped to highlight the need to have further development to counter the attacks from liberals.

Liberals and other heretics often raise good questions. Answering heresies is how theological development progresses. We have the comments of the incarnation in 1 John because of the docetists. We have the early creeds due to Christological hereies. Van Til responded to 19th century German idealism.
