Creation: From,Through, and By the Triune God
Samples, KR. 2007.  Connections 9(3):6-7. CELD ID 20666

A member of my Sunday school class asked me a question after hearing my talk on the Trinity—the biblically derived doctrine of historic Christianity that the one God subsists as three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.1 He asked: "Which specific person in the Godhead created the world?" I have been asked thousands of questions over the last 20 years of teaching and lecturing in both churches and colleges, but that was the first time anyone ever asked me that particular question. I appreciated the specificity of the query and how it related to the unique Triune nature of God.
