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.

I grew up in West Michigan and was lead ( I believe by the Lord) in 2008 to Los Angeles. Its hard to explain my process in one email as it took years to come through and it continues. I have struggled to find a fellowship of likeminded belivers as most believe in Hell ( eternal torment for those who " dont believe in Jesus" or said the sinners prayer)  if they also believe in some of the things I do. Dealbreaker for truth leadings for me! I see that your site has begun to not only set me free free from much of the calamity of confusion I have suffered by being led by false profetic churches ( HRock- Pasadena, IHOP -Pasadena and many of those within those and those similar).

Veganism: A Proselytizing Cult in Worship of Earth

From: Mata To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, November 07, 2016 5:40 PM Subject: Abusive vegan teenagersI didn't mind that my two teenage girls became vegan, it meant less sweets and more veggies. After a short while they became very aggressive to me insisting that I follow there path.!. My remark to a string of abusive words were: 'stress kills.....don't stress me out.'They were both more polite and kind before turning vegan. A frustrated mum.From: Paul Cohen To: Mata Cc: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Thursday, November 10, 2016 7:28 AM Subject: Re: Abusive vegan teenagersPerhaps you should mind that your daughters joined the pagan cult of veganism, Mata. You wouldn’t approve of other harmful practices in your home, would you, like smoking crack? Veganism is more insidious, because it destroys physically and spiritually while its practitioners are proud of the destruction they’re sowing and reaping. Crackheads rarely try to convert their mums.  If your daughters’ diets were poor in the past, veganism could be an improvement, no doubt, but to a degree and only for the short term. You’re already seeing fallout from this diet, because its philosophy is gravely corrupt and affects all levels of being. You should be looking into and implementing true principles of health for yourself and your family, as much as possible. Do you not believe in your Lord and Creator, Who put you on earth to live and prosper according to His laws and ways?Christian Physi...

The Whore Weeps Tears of False Love

From: Laci To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, October 05, 2016 9:44 PM Subject: my spirit achesYou can know all of the mysteries and have all of the knowledge, you can have all the faith- and maybe you do. But without love, you are nothing. And the teachings I've read of yours seem true, but there is something missing. "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:35Why do you not have one article on the first and second commandment? It seems vital in becoming a follower of Jesus. The whole reason He even came was out of love. I weep for you and for my friend who follows you. How many times have you heard this? When will you see through the eyes of Jesus? He loves you so much. I pray now in the name of Jesus that you, this night, experience the love of God and may the eyes of your understanding be enlightened to His glorious hope which He has called you to. May you sing praises like Paul in prison and dance wild in the streets like David. May Jesus become the true love of your life and joy overwhelm your being. Because in His presence there is fullness of joy. And may no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths but only that which is uplifting and will benefit those who listen. If you must know, my weeping stemmed from your response to a kind, gracious woman named Kim. --Laci  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Laci Sent: Monday, October 10, 2016 7:22 AM Subject:...
