Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:
Defending the Faith
Understanding the Term One God, and Its Meaning to Us
We know and confess there is One God that is, one essence. We also know and confess this one essence is known and shared equally in three Divine Persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The name "One God", speaks best to one divine essence and energy. One God does not identify just one Person. The name "One God" speaks better to one divine nature in three Persons, each with His own property – the Unbegotten Father, Only-begotten Son, and the Holy Spirit, by Procession. Therefore, when we hear the name One God, think not only of God the Father, but also of one divine essence shared equally and fully with three unique divine Persons - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
