Herman Bavinck and The Trinity

Of the human nature there is a dual unfolding: in the individual, human nature unfolds itself into personality; in the race human nature unfolds itself into many individuals, which in turn together constitute a unity, a personality, just as Christ and the church constitute one full-grown man… The fact that the mind illumined by God’s revelation, is able to find in the realm of nature traces of that God whom it learned to know from Scripture as being triune in his existence and works cannot be summarily denied… The thoughtful person places the doctrine of the trinity in the very center of the full-orbed life of nature and mankind.
