There are more than 45000 different denominations of Christians with varying opinions of God and how he's to be worshipped. But common thing among them is belief in the doctrine of Trinity. A belief in which Three different persons add up to be one God. ---- the father is God, the son is God and the Holy Spirit is God. And yet there are not three Gods but one God.
But I wonder why Jesus himself prayed to God, was strengthened by an angel, and does not know when he will return and yet be considered as God? The Bible even recorded that God raised him from the dead. How and why then do we consider him God.
The most suspicious part of it is that the doctrine of trinity was not thought by Jesus himself or disciples but by the early church fathers 330 years ago after Jesus' supposed death and resurrection. If you say Jesus is the son of God of course I will agree with you but when you say Jesus is God the son that's where we go our separate ways.
Feel free to say your opinion on this matter.
The way of God is different from ours. the holy trinity is something that is very difficult to understand but just as you believe in God with out seeing him that's just how the trinity is and you dont have to try to understand it. In Genesis God said let us create man in our own image and likeness has he creates man before making that statement? if no then who was he refering to as us?. But in all this I say follow your heart because is what you believe in that will work for you.
Firstly I won't argue with you because I do not have solid proof but all I need you to know is that no one has the full gist of the the TRINITY because Apostle Paul in the new testament said that the Trinity is a mystery and it shouldn't be argued by anyone if not mistaken...so you my dear if you really want to know much about it pray the holy spirit help you to..
With all the points you have raised on this platform. I could see why you have a solid reason to not have as much believe in Jesus as you so claim but I say before you today that God works in mysterious ways and as devout Christians we should not let the devil dampened our beliefs.Thank you.
Of course I completely agree with you, the teaching of trinity is very wrong, because there is a clear difference between Jehovah the Almighty God, his son Jesus Christ and his active force the holy spirit, and it deeply pains me when I see alot of Christians going astray and believing this wrong teaching, please be guided
Well in my opinion I do not think we should bother about Jesus being God or Holy Spirit being God what is important here is recorded in a very popular verse of the scriptures which is John 3:16 for God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever "BELIEVE" in him shall not perish. So our part of this game is to "believe"
Blessed is he that believeth though not seen.
Firstly God has made it known that we are Small gods on Earth, secondly the Jesus Christ is the way to salvation which you can get to God and deadly after the death of Christ he said he will send us a comforter which is the holy Spirit, there comes God the Father the son and the holy Spirit which is the trinity.
I think as humans, we are bound to be curious about many things. Most of the arguments we have today are about religion, particularly Christianity. I personally think many things remain mystery about God but that should be so, we are only human after all. The Trinity matter is also mysterious but there are references in the Bible about it. The fact that we choose to worship and pray to God without physically seeing him shows we have faith and believe he's there. We should also then believe the Trinity exists even if it seems like an enigma.
Of course I completely agree with you they says he is the son of God which I agree on, but when they say that he is God that where I get confused course God himself call him son and not God, and also he also pray to his father which is God...with this fact I don't believe in the divinity.
I would love to correct one or two mistakes in your write-up
1. Jesus was sent down to Earth to be a saviour of the Earth, so where you complained of Him praying to God isn't a problem because he being on Earth was as a Complete Man with flesh and blood; who had to communicate to his heavenly father.
2.secondly,the Issue of the third person in Trinity,The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God which just got to Earth Consequently after Jesus left the Earth. The spirit that would guide you on the right path.
