      Theophilus of Antioch: Doctrine of the Trinity

      http://www.piney.com/HsTheopTrinity.html

      Theophilus was the first person to use the word "trias." This was in the year 181 and the Anathasian Creed was not formulated until the fifth century.

      [linked image]

      You will say, then, to me, "Is God angry? "Yes; He is angry with those who act wickedly, but He is good, and kind, and merciful, to those who love and fear Him; for He is a chastener [not punisher] of the godly, and father of the righteous; but he is a judge and punisher of the impious.

      Chapter IV.-Attributes of God. Theophilus of Antioch, Theophilus of Antioch,

      And He is without beginning, because He is unbegotten; and He is unchangeable, because He is immortal.

      And he is called God on account of His having placed all things on security afforded by Himself; and on account of any of any foreign means (of) running, and moving, and being active, and nourishing, and foreseeing, and governing, and making all things alive.

      But he is Lord, because He rules over the universe;
      Father, because he is before all things;
      Fashioner and Maker, because He is creator and maker of the universe;
      the Highest, because of His being above all;
      and Almighty, because He Himself rules and embraces all.
