This is the sixth in a series of questions for Brandon E which began with this first question.
When the apostles encountered a controversy about the status of the Gentiles with respect to Christ, they held a church council in Jerusalem. They settled the issue then and there. Subsequent to that apostolic age, it took multiple councils and multiple centuries to arrive at the understanding of God now called the Trinity. Why did it take so long to resolve the latter when it did not take long to resolve the former?
