Kingdom-planting and world-changing discipline known as Triology.
Triology is a
word coined by Chief Apostle Russell D. Clark, a successor of Father
Elias Dempsey Smith.
The word comes from the words 'Triumphant' and 'logos'. To be
triumphant is to have
the integrity of knowledge of the power of God in man and women to
subdue and conquer
death in the body. The ending syllable 'ology' comes from the Greek
'logos', which refers
to the study of meaning and discourse (including spoken, written or
revealed Word of God).
The combination of 'Tri' and 'ology' gives 'Triology': the
systematic study of written sacred
texts, spoken Word, and revealed Word about God's plan for humanity in
pursuit of eternal life.
