Discussion questions

For small groups

  1. How does the way that atheists describe God compare with how the Trinity is described in this talk and in the Bible?
  2. How do you think your relationship with God, and understanding of the gospel, would change if you had a better grasp of God as Father, Son and Spirit?
  3. When trying to explain the gospel message in a simple way, it's difficult to include everything. How might you go about explaining the gospel in a way that highlight God as Trinity?

For leadership teams

  1. In recent months, when we have presented the gospel message, what 'sort of God' have we been introducing people to? How does this compare to the ideas of 'god' that are promoted by popular culture and academia?
  2. How can we present the gospel in a way that is about becoming beloved children of the Father, as well as being forgiven sinners?
  3. How can we move beyond an academic understanding of the Trinity and help people grasp what it means to worship and serve a God that is Father, Son and Spirit?
