DeYoung on the Trinity--Lord's Day 8

DeYoung writes:

If any doctrine makes Christianity Christian, then surely it is the Trinity. The Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed-are all structured around our three-in-one God, underlying the essential importance of Trinitarian theology Augustine once commented about the Trinity that “in no other subject is error more dangerous, or inquiry more laborious, or the discovery of truth more profitable.” More recently, Sinclair Ferguson has reflected on “the rather obvious thought that when his disciples were about to have the world collapse in on them, our Lord spent so much time in the Upper Room speaking to them about the mystery of the Trinity If anything could underline the necessity of Trinitarianism for practical Christianity, that must surely be it!”
