Blood, not Brains Makes a Christian

Subject: Questions on the Trinity.

Hey guys, I’m pretty new to your site and I’ve been looking around a lot and learning some very interesting stuff.  I consider myself a “baby Christian” as I only started reading the Bible in February.  Since then I’ve read it twice more this year.  But, I do have a quick question about the denial of the Trinity on your site.  I’ll get right to it, and I’m sorry if these are questions that you’ve already addressed.  If they are, please just post a link to the article and I’ll be happy to read them.

First off, in II Corinthians 1:3 Paul writes “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ”

In my opinion Paul’s letters seem to make a pretty clear distinction between Father and Son.  Here is included not only the God “AND” Father, but also “OF” our Lord Jesus Christ.

But the reason I mostly believe in the Trinity is actually from Genesis 18 and 19.

Just to rehash it quickly, Abraham is sitting in the tent door when he looks up and see’s 3 men standing near him.  He gets up and says Genesis 18:3 “My Lord, if I have now found favor in Your sight, do not pass on by Your servant…”  So he serves them and they talk, then it reads Genesis 18:22 “Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord.”

At 19:1 we read “Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening..”

So logically, there were 3 men, 2 were angels, 1 was the Lord in the figure of man, which can only be Jesus.  Then I’m sure you know how the angels visit went, so my big question is:

Genesis 19:24 where it reads:  “Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens.”

So, the way I read that is “Then the Lord (Son* in human form on the earth ie; Jesus) rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord (Father YHWH) out of the heavens.

I’m sorry but I have a JW friend that I haven’t talked to in a while, last time I talked to him I was just getting into the Bible, so when he asked me “If Jesus is God, then why did he pray to God?”  At the time I didn’t have a response, but now I feel like if he would ask me again, I would actually go to the Genesis passage, over anything in the New Testament, that there are Father and Son, but both share the power of the Godhead.  Can you tell me how this passage does not confirm the possibility of the Trinity?  Obviously the Spirit is not mentioned here, but if you can establish that there is a Father AND a Son, it wouldn’t be too inconceivable of adding the Spirit to the equation. 

Thank you ahead of time for your response, and again I’m sorry if this passage has been sited before.

Hi Alex,

Your question about Genesis 19 is answered in The Asininity of the Trinity.

You would do well to read all of the writings in The Trinity and Jesus Christ Is God.

However, you need to become a Christian by blood, not brains. Being an intellectual Christian will never do. Read How One Is Saved and The Cross – Only the Death Sentence Will Avail.

For more on the error of JW’s denying the divinity of Jesus Christ, see Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Praying for Your Spouse to Return
From: Sylvia To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 06, 2016 9:10 PM Subject: Worth Praying For my husband to be back? Greetings,  Thank you so much for the wisdom shared in your article(are all marriages of God?); I have indeed been blessed by it. I met my husband as an illegal immigrant in the UK and after helping him secure his stay in the country, now living with another woman, with whom he has an 8-month old baby. My wish before I met him was to get married before having children. I was robbed of this privilege in helping him to secure his stay as we were advised that his spousal visa application would be more successful if he shows he has a family in the UK. I regret so much that I disappointed God and myself but I have asked for forgiveness and I know He has indeed forgiven me. The application was indeed a success but it has turned out he only came into my life for what he could could gain from me.  Despite attempts to get him to do what is right, he has left me to raise our two daughters(two and five years of age) on my own. He shows no care for them and I. He really has been wicked towards the children and I. I'm still praying for God to change his heart but sometimes, I feel I am praying in vain as doubt it is not right to pray for him to be back, though that is the only decision that gives me peace!  Please advise me. I just want to live by His will, not mine!  I have shortened my story in order to be as concise as possible, please ...
Ask God for Confirmation, Not Devils
From: Candy To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, January 27, 2016 2:59 PM Subject: Angelica Zambrano's Testimony You Can Write or Type or Post Millions of Documentaries Against Angelica's Testimony. Ultimately God has the Final Word. Many of Us have been Saved through Angelica's Testimony I have several friends on FB who can testify. God Revealed and Spoke to me in a Divine Dream -Vision the Holy Spirit Told me "Believe Angelica, her words are not Mans words but Gods Words." See it must be Spiritually Discerned, To man God's Wisdom is Foolishness. Pray to God ask for a Confirmation for God to Reveal to you if the Words spoken are God's Truth. Remember the Book of Jeremiah; "Call on Me and I will Answer thee and Show thee Great and Mighty things that ye knoweth Not." Or Proverbs Trust God with All your Heart and lean Not on your Own Understanding in all your ways Acknowledge him and he shall direct your Path. You Always want to pray to God for Confirmations before False Accusing his Prophets. Thankyou.

Angelica’s testimony is blasphemous and we have proven it by the Lord Jesus Christ and His Testimony. He Alone has revealed these things to us.  You worship another Jesus by seducing spirits and not the Risen Lord Jesu...
Diabolical Doctrine: The King James Version Is the Perfect Word of God
Why has that which is perfect been revised numerous times to correct errors? How is it its worshippers don’t recognize the errors still remaining in the KJV? Those who worship the KJV as being the perfect Word of God are in grievous error and idolatry indeed.
