Re: HOLY TRINITY
- GLORY TO GOD
Respected and dearly beloved brothers and sisters,
This has reference to the e-mail comment "There is no Holy Trinity
in old testament Only Lord God.
In this regard, firstly I would like inform you that We believe in
Trinity as one in three and three in one, there is no difference in it.
In the old testmament when God met Abraham for lunch/dinner there
were more than one persons.
(There are some christian people called Unitarians and Universalits,
who are only not believing in the Holy Trinity, all other Christians are
believing in Holy Trinity).
In the New Testament only, we are seeing Jesus also (but mentions
of Immanual is given there in the Old Testament).That doesnt mean
that Jesus was not there. But the concept of "Trinity" is for
Christians and that also started after Jesus and new testament. But
the old testament is for Christians, Muslims, Judaism also.
What Christianity Believes.
The vaious divisions and sects may differ in under scoring on
verbalizing their creeds, they are all Christian and have in common
these basic beliefs:
In God, Creator of things visible and invisible. He is: and He
manifests himself in all reality.
That Jesus is the Messiah, the Christ, Son of God (whether
symbolically or literally interpreted).
IN THE TRINITY: THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY GHOST.
That man is born a sinner and in need of redemption and salvation.
That Jesus Christ came down to earth for salvation of mankind.
That man has an immortal soul, accountable to God.
That the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the accepted guide
In the historicity of the Gospels
In baptism as a remission of sin
In the repentance of sinners
In the life Hereafter
That those who follow Jesus Christ and who repent their sins, will
enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
==Lastly God lives in all of us as we have received him through
baptism==and BAPTISM is ONCE only==
Let us pray for all ever & ever with love
