In recent years the question of the Trinity has been of important interest within the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Many have disputed the current Trinitarian position of the Church. Therefore, many Adventists are calling for a rejection of the Trinity because of an alleged idea that the current Adventist position on the subject of the Trinity is coming from the Roman Catholic Church. However, a comparative and contrasting study between the Roman Catholic Church and the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s statement of belief in the Trinity shows that the Adventist statement is different from the Catholic view. Therefore, the two theologies of the Trinity differ from one another. Even though the two denominations agree on the importance of the concept of the Trinity in their theology, they differ in their understanding of the major aspects of the three persons of the Trinity.
