The Trinity and the Explicit Statement Fallacy

The Dispensational rush to explicit statements, in order to prove one point or another fails miserably. This is particularly striking when it comes to the doctrine of the Trinity, and by implication, when it comes to the eternal covenant of the Father, Son, and Spirit.

Ralph Smith argues that “some dispensationalists forsake the theological methodology of implications, which gave them the doctrine of the Trinity, and  flee to the demand for explicit statements? Is this not a counsel of despair (41).”
