Define and distinguish between Revelation, Inspiration, and Illumination
Revelation- is the act of God revealing something. An example is God making Himself known through creation Romans 1:20 or speaking to us through Christ Hebrews 1:1-2
Inspiration- is the act of God supernaturally guiding a person to express His revealed will or mind. This the how scripture or in other words the word of God was written. 2 Peter 1:20-22 & 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Illumination is the process of the Holy Spirit illuminating the truth to a person. An example we see in the New Testament is Lydia in Acts 16:14. 1 Corinthians 2:14 says the natural man can't understand God. Enlightenment continues throughout a believers life with Christ and that was one thing Paul prayed for the Church of Ephesus. Ephesians 1:18.

Natural revelation are general truths about God revealed to all people. his creation is an example Romans 1:19-20 or in our conscious like Romans 2:14-15

What religious groups oppose the trinity and how do you combat them?
Islam only refers to God as one and denies that Jesus was more than a prophet. Since they believe in the prophets I would say Ezekiel 36:27 is clear that God has a Spirit In addition to Deuteronomy 6:4 there is one God.

What is your belief about God, creation, and evolution?
Creation is formed by the act of causing to exist. In other words a creation cannot have previously existed. Genesis 1:1 John 1:3 Colossians 1:16
Humans do not create. We multiply, build, and modify. We have creativity because we are made in His image but we cannot create something from nothing.
Evolution as a means of explaining the existence of life has already been disproven by science. The evolution theory of life is a genetic mutation that results in a new species.
