Even Dr. MacArthur has said he can't explain the trinity from Scripture, since it's a mystery, but he accepts the doctrine of the Church in faith.

(Fred) I just caught this and need to respond. John has never stated this. What he has stated is that the concept of three persons in one God is mysterious to understand. Never has he claimed that it is difficult to explain the Trinity from the Bible. One only has to go to Ephesians 1:4-14 or 1 Peter 1:2 to see the Trinity is clearly affirmed in scripture and affirm by John MacArthur.
