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.

Troubles Can Give Us True Faith
From: Eduardo To: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk Sent: Saturday, January 09, 2016 10:02 AM Subject: Please, a help in an urgent matter Victor, Paul, Today my wife created a really big trouble at home, with physical aggression, hidden equipment that are important for my work, and hiding my smartphone that is extremely necessary to my work (I give support to customers) She is again saying that I am doing many things I am not doing. While she keeps her sinful life mostly by internet. Until now I was being patient, however now I have to take care of my children, and since I got a new project that will help me greatly, I cannot afford to have more troubles. My children needs a better place to start their life. Since I want to obey the Lord, and every time more walk according His Will, I do not to hold what is not to hold. Sometimes is like giving my better to buy a ticket to travel on Titanic. I do not know the future and what is going to happen. Sentiments are betraying me, and besides I love her, I do not want to continue with this situation. Every day I am accused of things I am not doing, I have nothing to hide from anyone.  I need direction.

Is JP perfect? No, but I have witnessed in my spirit his genuine love for Jesus. Money is not the evil, it is the love of money. Wealth can be from God and be used by the church to further the gospel and honor Him.  Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon were wealthy and loved God. What about Job? God loves his children and wants to bless them. Besides this any blessing and provision is held with open hands because it is all the Lord's. I have much joy in my heart with a genuine increase in Love from my Savior Jesus Christ. I have heard many sermons of Joseph's and I truly believe that he is filled and led by the spirit of God! Paul had much opposition and from who? The religious and self righteous who cannot accept the love of God. They believe their works will restore their relationship with God. Only the free gift of righteousness by faith as with Abraham will restore our right relationship with our beautiful Savior. To Him be the honor and glory forever, Amen!! We love because He first loved us. I will pray that your hatred turn to love. Lord Bless you both!

Diabolical Doctrine: The Gifts of the Holy Spirit Are Not for Today
This is denial by non-experience. Those who never received the Spirit of God, and don’t believe, deny God (the Holy Spirit) and His spiritual gifts.
