Is the concept of God in Christianity (the Trinity) three Gods or One Yours is an age old question, which stems from a basic misunderstanding.

" THE HOLY TRINITY Our LORD JESUS CHRIST, the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD is called by three names, viz., GOD the FATHER; GOD the SON; and GOD the Holy Spirit.

In addition to the other excellent answers given here, Jesus gives a reason for His prayers in John 11: John 11:41b-42 “Father, I thank You that You heard Me. I know that You always hear Me, but because of the crowd standing here I said this, so they may believe You sent Me.” He said this as a prayer, after calling Lazarus out from the tomb. There was ...

If joint heirs truly means that heirs will receive and identical inheritance of God's glory, then we should ask the question, "What is God's glory?" Is it his perfect understanding and knowledge of truth? Is it his omnipotence? Is it his power over evil? Is it is power to do great works of good (i.e. his righteousness)? Did Jesus Christ forge the way for man ...

The early church fathers explained the verses where Jesus claims to have a God as referring to both in his divinity and his humanity. It means that Christ has his own Father as God not only his human nature but also in his divine nature. The Son has his Father as his "God" because the Son's being "God" came from his Father via begetting. In other words, ...

If I write you a valid check for all the money in my bank account and sign it as Son, but not my name, they could not and would not cash it. We must only baptize in Jesus' name for it is "the only name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12 Jesus is the Name of GOD. Isa 9:6,Matthew 1:21-23,etc. For His name actually means ...

Jesus was the last Adam. Adam was created in the image of God but being a created entity, obviously did not have the attributes of omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence. In order to be the appropriate sacrifice Jesus had to be incarnated in the likeness of Adam, with all the same limitations Adam had. If Jesus had an advantage over Adam (maintaining ...

How many Gods do we have? One and only one! How many persons are there in God? Three and only three! Who are them? Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, NIV) Do we worship them separately? NO! Because they are ONE. ...

There is one God who has revealed himself in three persons. The vast majority of Christians across all major sects agree that Jesus is both the Son of God and God. This has been articulated many mays, but is not easy to explain in the confines of language. He is not the "son" as is a physical offspring as the result of sexual relations, but in another ...

Eusebius, quoted Matthew 28:19 19 times. He quoted it 18 times without "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit". The 1 time that he quoted it with "The Father, the Son , and the Holy Spirit", he wrote that he got it from Theodotus, a Gnostic. No complete NT manuscripts, in Greek, are available before the 4th Century. They were burned and I'm 100% certain ...

If God is one then why is belief in God insufficient? Faith in God is indeed sufficient, it is however misunderstood because faith falls into three categories. Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” ...

You seem to be missing the singular point which is the crux of Salvation. Salvation is not believing in God. Salvation comes from believing that Jesus in dying on the Cross paid our sin debt in full. To the best of my knowledge all faiths that are known as Christian believe that it was Jesus death and resurrection that provides for our being able to get to ...

The question really seems to be regarding why specific belief in Jesus, His death and His resurrection is necessary for salvation. Why isn't belief in any god sufficient for salvation. The problem is one of perspective. Are we asking what flavor of ice cream someone prefers or are we asking what medicine will cure a particular disease. If belief in God ...

Trying to answer the question how I best understand it Some starting points are assumed: God exists. (More accurately, God IS [Existence]). He is One. He is True. He is Good. cf. God | New Advent, The Existence of God | New Advent, and The Nature and Attributes of God | New Advent. That religion is universal, is plain. But if there is God, and he is ...

Simply put, If you imagine God as a house, then Jesus is the door - Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." - John 14:6 ESV (cf. John 10:1-9) If you want to go in, you go through him. The door is part of the house and inextricably linked to (one with) it: [ Jesus: ] "I and the ...
