“This truth is a great mystery. Let it be enough to receive and
believe it, and let us ever abstain from all attempts at explanation.
It is childish folly to refuse assent to things that we do not
understand. We are poor crawling worms of day, and know little at our
best about God and eternity. Suffice it for us to receive the doctrine
of the Trinity in Unity, with humility and reverence, and to ask no
vain questions. Let us believe that no sinful soul could be saved
without the work of all three Persons in the blessed Trinity, and let
us rejoice that Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, who co-operated to make
man, do always co-operate to save him. Here let us pause. We may
receive practically what we cannot explain theoretically.” Bishop J.
C. Ryle (1856)
