Getting Right to the Point!
The One and Only True God Is the Holy Trinity!
Was the Trinity “invented” by the early Christian Church? Was this perplexing doctrine added to the teachings of Jesus, but actually unknown to Him and His followers? This is what far too many so-called Christian theologians believe and teach to those who are studying to fill pulpits and classrooms in most major denominations today, and is claimed by a number of non-Christian cults. Yet, why would a new religion, already fighting for survival two thousand years ago, insist its converts believe that three equals one and one equals three, if this wasn't absolutely necessary for salvation?!
While it is true that the word “Trinity” is not found in the Bible, the teaching certainly is. The Old Testament prophet Isaiah records, “Behold, My Servant (the Son), Whom I (the Father) uphold; . . . I have put My Spirit (the Holy Spirit) upon Him.” (42:1). And Jesus (the Son) spoke of “. . . the Helper, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name” (John 14:26). And, of course, Jesus also commanded that people be baptized ". . . in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28:19)
So, if you want to be saved, you must believe in the one and only real God – the Triune God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three Persons, yet one God. Is this hard to believe? Yes. Is this essential to believe? Absolutely! And that's the point!
