Question? If trinity is not used in the Bible, how can we describe the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost?
|YOU SAID IT!
I had always believed in the Trinity until I started reading my Bible studiously. Father, Son & Holy Ghost - together they are one - was what I was taught. Now I know my Father sent Jesus to save us from sin; He sent His only begotten Son to us. When Jesus was here on this earth in the flesh, God's spirit was in him - but Jesus was not God, he was His son. Now Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father. Jesus prayed to His Father that we would be sent the Comforter (the Holy Ghost) to teach us and bring all of His words to our remembrance (hence, we have the King James Bible). We are not to pray or give thanks to the Holy Ghost - only to our Father in Heaven, through our Lord Jesus Christ. John 14, "...If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him. " The Bible makes it very clear who they all are... why muddle it up? - MJ / CALGARY
This is an interesting topic. In the Catholic church which we go to, they refer to the Trinity all the time. I think they use it as an expression, not in a biblical sense. - C.H. / CALGARY
Jesus prayed in John 17: 21 that we all might be one, as the Father was in Him and He was in the Father. He is One with him in agreement, having the same Spirit and the same nature. When Jesus said that "I and my Father are one..." in John 10: 30, He was not claiming to be the Father (Vs 36b) but rather He is one with Him, as we are to be with each other. - P. G. / Edmonton
