A blessed Christmas
to you all.

New Christianity Church

The New Christianity Church is not a recognized autonomous branch of the Christian Church.   We are, and fully intend to remain, a separate group of people who believe and trust in our Lord, Jesus.   We therefore focus our lives on Jesus two over-riding commandments, Matthew 22:39: First, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind.   And the second is like this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."

We also live by these words of Jesus captured in Matthew 25:34-36: "Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: 'Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.   For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me,'" and by all the words of Jesus in the gospels written by those who were with Jesus while He was on the earth.

We realize we should not be living in a Worldly Paradigm, but instead should always shift our thinking to a Spiritual Paradigm, trusting in Jesus and relying on the guidance of the Paraclete.

John 1:1-3

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.   The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made."

Note: "Sequence" refers to the sequence of events.

Foundational Source

The New Christianity Church is, of course, based on the Bible, primarily on the New Testament and everything Jesus said and did.   The church also reflects the developing New Science.   Nothing in the New Science conflicts with the Bible.   There is a God, hereinafter referred to as the Trinity, and specifically as Father God, Jesus God and Spirit God. One God, three Persons (Reference John 14:26)

Jesus is the "Creator," who is referenced in the the New Science.   He is the same Jesus born of Mary a little more than 2,000 years ago.   Jesus God is not limited by time nor sequence.   "Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" John 8:58

Foundational Verses

John 8:50-58 "Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death." At this they exclaimed, "Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that whoever obeys your word will never taste death. Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?" Jesus replied, "If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me. Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and obey his word. Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad." "You are not yet fifty years old," they said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!" "Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!".

Everything had a beginning with Jesus, not with a "pre-incarnate" Jesus nor a "Christophany" like some have to say; those who cannot accept that God is not limited by time nor the sequence of events. It was the same Jesus God you know and love.

Genesis 2:7

"And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth: and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living being."

Jesus blew into Adam's lungs to fill them with oxygen for the first time as one would a newborn baby who was not yet breathing.

"And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them." Genesis 1:27

Creation of Mankind

It was Jesus who said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness," Genesis 1:26   Who else in the Trinity do we resemble?   Jesus knew the life and death he would have to go through, but He created us nonetheless, demonstrating His unimaginable great love for us.

Adam began as two, undifferentiated, coincident* cells, one physical and one spiritual, with one common spiritual soul. His was the most complex tripartite stem cell Jesus created. Using the carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, water and nutrients of His creation (the materials of the earth), Jesus caused Adam's growth process to be completed instantly, cell by cell, as controlled by his soul, creating simultaneously both a physical body and a coexistent spiritual body with one soul.

Eve was created in the same manner, except that her tripartite stem cell came from the bone marrow of Adam.   Adam then said: "This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man."   Wherefore a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be two in one flesh. Genesis 2:23-24   "Vir beide sind nur ein," says a wife to her husband. "We both are only one."

*Coincident, existing in the same location at the same time.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (TNIV) "And may the God of peace himself sanctify you in all things; that your whole spirit, and soul, and body, may be preserved blameless in the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Why keep the soul (the repository of all memory) blameless? Because everything you ever did wrong is stored there in your memory and may result in temptations to sin at some later time.

Tripartite cells

Right from the start of our lives, there was a physical cell coincident with an identical spiritual cell, and at the functional center of the cells was our soul (referenced in the New Science as the Atemporal Particle), which was designed to direct all growth and other functions of our cells, store all memory and co-generate consciousness.

Our lives clearly and unequestionaly begin with the first tripartite cell and at no later point in our development process.

This defines, in the simplest, most basic way, the meaning of the words spirit and soul, terms confused throughout the ages and still today, even in the Greek language which is used in the New Testament.

Greek Definitions

Soul (psuché) is a feminine noun meaning, breath, i.e. (by implication) spirit, distinguished from the rational and immortal soul.

Spirit (pneûma) means a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze; by analogy or figuratively, a spirit, i.e. the rational Soul.

Spirit vs Soul

You can see by the Greek definitions why church leaders have confused the words Spirit and Soul. Greek was used when the New Testament was written. You have a physical body and a coincident spirit body. The soul is a component of both, controlling the functions of your cells, storing all memory and co-generating consciousness. You can't lose your soul, as you may have been told. Your soul doesn't meet with your Creator when you die, you do, in your spirit body with your soul.


Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them, saying: 'Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth.'"

Conception

At the true moment of conception, the souls of both mother and father unite creating a new, unique soul incorporating the instructions to develop a unique human. The soul, therefore, also contains the combined ancestral memories of the parents. Concurrently at conception, the physical chromosomes and the spiritual chromosomes of both parents unite within the ovum creating a genetically unique, newly existing, individual, a whole living human being, a tripartite embryonic human zygote as shown above.


Psalm 139:13-16

"You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb. I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works! My very self you know. My bones are not hidden from you, When I was being made in secret, fashioned in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me unformed; in your book all are written down; my days were shaped, before one came to be."

Growth controlled by the Soul

Our physical cells then divide repeatedly, concurrently with our spiritual cells, through the instructions from our souls.   As human babies, body, spirit and soul, we developed in our mothers' wombs.

In Christian theology, the tripartite view (trichotomy) holds that humankind is a composite of three distinct components: body, spirit, and soul, but there is no clear, consistent definition for either the soul or the spirit.

Tripartite Humans

Our bodies are tripartite, having developed from tripartite zygotes, with the entire growth process controlled by our souls.   We are one person; at once a coexisting physical body and a spiritual body, with one soul.  

Our spiritual bodies do not age past maturity and they are immortal; perfect, just the way our Creator, Jesus, wanted them to be.

Our physical bodies may not be so perfect, since they may have been affected by errors in our DNA that either occurred ancestrally, due to age or environmental factors, all caused by the first sin of mankind (the Fall), which corrupted everything in the entire universe.

John 11:25-26

"Jesus said to her: 'I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live: And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die forever. Believest thou this?'"

Matthew 7:12-14, "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.   Enter through the narrow gate.   For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.   But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."

Death

Your physical body is mortal, but your spiritual body is immortal, which means, you will not die.   You will eventually leave your physical body, but you will not die.   Others may one day look upon your physical body as having died, but you will immediately be fully consciousness, feel great, younger and everything in your memory will suddenly be easy to recall.   It will seem like a movie review of your entire life. You may feel immense love from the Creator, love like you have never felt before.

And, you may go on living - forever.   Where?   Jesus explains that clearly in Matthew 25:31-46.

Atheist Dad Is Transformed After Glimpse of Heaven as Toddler Son Is Taken Off Life Support

Reported by Geeta Nangia, TIME February 17, 2022 (edited to fit within this page)

A family lost their 2-year-old son due to respiratory complications of the flu virus 11 years ago. The family were told that Griffin was brain dead and that, within the next 24 hours, they were going to disconnect him from life support. Darin watched Jennifer as she laid down with her son for hours knowing she didn't have much time left with him. After Jennifer, when Darin laid down for 30 minutes, everything around him was getting darker with each passing minute, he explained. Darin touched Griffin's hair and grabbed his hand like a handshake. "Right there, at that moment, I was GONE. Like, lifted out of my body. Gone. I was traveling with him. He was ahead of me, and he was looking back at me holding my hand. We were traveling. It felt fast, but it wasn't the wind. I could only see blue. My initial words to Griffin were, 'I can't believe this is happening,' and he would look at me and his smile was just so large and he was so alive. But, when he would look away from me, I would become very ill. Then, he would look at me again, and that feeling would go away. It was just so intense, the love I felt, and then he would look away. The third time he looked away, I was so sick and nauseated by my own feelings of not being enough, and I thought to myself, 'You've got to toughen up. This is a rare moment you are getting with your son. He is alive. This time, Griffin looked at me, and he laughed. He knew my thoughts. He chuckled and said, 'Daddy, you aren't sick!.' I knew all of what he meant at that moment, spiritually and emotionally. I was NOT sick! And then, I experienced the love of God. He was everywhere and totally encompassed me. I could see things I had done in my life. I didn't take care of people like I should have. I felt God say that He'd put people in my life to take care of them, but I hadn't. I could see these things play out and God showing me in a very peaceful and loving way, not a critical way. It was harsh, but so loving at the same time. Everything made sense. I could see eternity. It was to be outside of time. It was very clear to me there that Griffin, in his two years, did more than most men in one hundred years could conceivably do. His life was truly precious and accomplished. We got to what seemed like the end, and it seemed Griffin was trying to introduce me to someone. His attention went somewhere and then he looked back at me. And then, he asked me, 'Daddy, may I stay?' It was a yes or no question. I knew that I could say no, and that he would have been alive when I got back. It was crystal clear. But you know what I said? 'You can stay.' I said, 'Wow, son, Of course, you can stay!'" Darin remembers clearly that the moment he uttered the word, "wow," he was back in his bed in the hospital holding his son's hand and at that moment, everything was "really over." "That love, that I felt there in heaven. It was clear that the most I could ever do with all the love I could ever muster up, was a tenth of one percent of the love that I experienced that God had for me," Darin said of his profound experience.

What Happened?

As explained earlier, your spirit body is coincident with your physical body, and it moves with the physical body.  When your physical arm moves, you spirit arms moves with it.   When your physical hand grasps someone's physical hand, your spirit hand grasps that person's spirit hand.   When Darin grasped Griffin's hand, it just so happened that at that very moment, Griffin left his physical body.   Darin's spirit body was pulled from his physical body and moved with Griffin's spirit body as they both entered the spiritual realm.   Darin's consciousness transferred to his spirit body and both Darin and Griffin were conscious and alive as Griffin moved toward heaven.   They both then experienced the all encompassing love of God.   "I could see eternity. It was ... outside of time," said Darin.   In the Sequential State, events follow in sequence with no time between events.   As in almost all Near Death Experiences, the person wants to stay in the spiritual state, as Griffin also expressed.   Darin said to Griffin, "Wow, son, of course, you can stay!", and he was immediately conscious again in his physical body, in the bed holding the hand of his son's now dead physical body, with Griffin alive and well in heaven.

John 13:34

"A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one another."

Matthew 25:40

"And the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me."

Standing before Jesus

And, when you meet Jesus in person, it will be you who meets him looking just how he wanted you to look, with your complete spiritual body, head, arms, legs, torso and soul.

And will Jesus say? "Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me."

Remember, for all of us, who believed in Him and obeyed His commandments, Jesus will create a new heaven and a new earth. (Revelations 21:1-3 and 2 Peter 3:13)

Is it difficult to be welcomed into heaven by Jesus?

Absolutely not.   Jesus has forgiven all of your sins, past, present and future.   Now, do everything you can to get to know Jesus through His words and actions in the New Testament of the Bible.   You have read novels and watched movies and felt you knew the fictitious characters at the end.   Well, Jesus is real!   By reading His words and learning what He has already done for you, you will learn to love and trust Him.   You can't love and trust someone you don't believe exists.  He wants you to spend eternity with Him in the new universe and new earth He will create.   Repent of your sins.   "Go, and now sin no more." John 8:11   Do also as He instructed, help others at every opportunity, physically, emotionally and financially.

Jesus said: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets." Matthew 22:37-40

Are there all kinds of other rules to follow?   Nope.


Doing as He Instructed

The New Christianity Church has two ministries so far. In Uganda, Africa, we support The Tree of Love Orphanage.   We are taking care of 16 orphans in Uganda. Click on the image, and Lydia will show you what we've got done so far.

In Jaipur, India, we support the Children of Hope School a school exclusively for children from the slums.   There are 100 enrolled in the school.   Click on the image, and there, promoting the school, you will meet Diksha, who we have supported since 2014.   At both the school in Jaipur and orphanage in Uganda, we teach all about Jesus.

Matthew 15:54-57

"And coming into his own country, he taught them in their synagogues, so that they wondered and said: 'How came this man by this wisdom and miracles?   Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary, and his brethren James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Jude:   And his sisters, are they not all with us?   Whence therefore hath he all these things?'   And they were scandalized in his regard.   But Jesus said to them: 'A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.'"

Jesus, the carpenter's step-son.

Let's turn our attention to the life of the Creator.   Although the same Jesus you know and love created the cosmos and everything in it, we must always keep in mind he grew up as the step-son of a carpenter, and he no doubt worked with the tools of the day to build things.   (I'm and engineer, and I like that Jesus made things with His hands.)   He knew he would become a human, a servant to others through his learned trade, before he created the cosmos.   As the step-son of Joseph, He may have had to take on the carpentry business and head of household when Joseph died (there is no mention of Joseph after Jesus started his ministry).

Luke 1:31-33

"And the angel said to her: 'Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.   Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end.'"

Mary, Jesus' mother.

Just like all humans, Jesus began* as a tripartite cell in a young woman's womb, when the angel spoke to Mary.   The physical cell was produced by her body while the spiritual cell was divine, through the intercession of Spirit God.   The soul, at the functional center of Jesus' coincident cells, came only from Mary.   Jesus, therefore, developed in the womb of Mary, at once God and man.

*"Began" cannot correctly be used when describing Jesus who simply is.

Phillipians 2:6-10

"Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth."

Jesus' birth.

Since the soul is the repository of all memory experienced by the individual, and since Jesus' soul came from Mary, when Jesus was born, he had no physical memory of who he was, making him just the son of Mary and step-son of a common carpenter. Mary and Joseph waited until he was ready to learn his true nature.

Luke 2:47

"And all that heard him were astonished at his wisdom and his answers."

Speaking with elders in the temple.

Jesus had to be without sin to be the human who atones for our sins, but He did make mistakes, just like all of us when we were kids.   For example, when he was twelve, his parents went to Jerusalem for a religious festival with many friends and relatives.   Somehow, Jesus found himself on the steps of the temple where some teachers were hanging out.   He was listening to them and asking good questions.

With his upbringing and studies of the Torah, young Jesus was able to amaze them by his understanding and his answers.   At twelve, he was already driven by the knowledge that his mother, and probably his stepfather, told him and believed he was the Son of the Most High.

Luke 2:48 - Jesus is scolded by Mary

"When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, 'Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.'"

Teenager's mistakes.

However, he didn't tell his parents where he was, and he didn't watch to see when the caravan of friends and relatives was leaving.   Jesus' parents searched for him for three days.   His recorded explanation left something to be desired.   "Why were you searching for me?" he asked, "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?" Luke 2:49   That sounds like a young teenager's response.   It was.   Mary was quite upset with him.

"And Jesus being baptized, forthwith came out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened to him: and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him.   And behold a voice from heaven, saying: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

Jesus starts His ministry.

Jesus was about 30-years old when he started his ministry after his baptism by John in the Jordan.   He then went into the wilderness and remained there alone for fourty days, tempted by the devil.   He returned and began to invite the disciples to follow him in his ministry.   Just three days later Jesus, his mother, Mary, and his disciple friends were invited to Cana for a wedding.

John 2:1-5

"And the third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee: and the mother of Jesus was there.   And Jesus also was invited, and his disciples, to the marriage.   And the wine failing, the mother of Jesus saith to him: 'They have no wine.'   And Jesus saith to her: 'Woman, what is that to me and to thee, my hour is not yet come?'   His mother saith to the waiters: 'Whatsoever he shall say to you, do ye.'"

Powerful Words

Jesus, the Son of Father God, had no power as a man to perform miracles.   He relied on the Spirit God to perform them.   In fact, even the teaching words he spoke came from Father God; he said so.

I am relating the miracle performed at Cana to highlight some powerful words not spoken by Jesus nor by Father God; words that are not considered powerful by most.   When Mary turned to Jesus and said, "They have no wine."   Jesus replied with something like, "What can you and I do about that?"   Without further discussion, Mary turned to the waiters and said these powerful words, "Do whatever he tells you."

This woman, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is not to be ignored by us either, as many of us and our pastors do.

John 19:25-27

"Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen.   When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: 'Woman, behold thy son.'   After that, he saith to the disciple: 'Behold thy mother.'   And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.

Chosen

When Jesus created the universe, he already knew, intimately, every one of the billions and billions of human beings that would live on earth, and, out of all of those, he chose one young woman to become his mother.   He knew the role she would play in his birth and early life.   He knew she would be at his crucifiction.   He planned for her to be taken care of after his death and ascension into heaven.   He loved and honored his mother.   The New Christianity Church also honors Mary.

Isaiah 59:13

"In sinning and lying against the Lord: and we have turned away so that we went not after our God, but spoke calumny and transgression: we have conceived, and uttered from the heart, words of falsehood."


Infinite Injustice

Jesus created humans knowing that many would deny His existence, and do as they pleased, ignoring His commandments without repentance. This would justly require humankind's annihilation. Think of it, the "created" denying and disobeying the divine "Creator." There can be no greater injustice, an infinite injustice. Only the Creator, Jesus, could fully resolve the injustice which would occur. Since humans would cause the injustice, a human would also have to atone.


Matthew 20:17-19

"And Jesus going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples apart, and said to them: 'Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death. And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked, and scourged, and crucified, and the third day he shall rise again.'"

Our redemption.

Therefore, Jesus knew that only a God/human could resolve and atone for the injustice that would occur. He would have to become fully human while remaining fully God. He would have to atone for the injustice by dying a human death, and he died on the cross to save all of humankind from annihilation. At the end of his suffering, He left his physical body saying, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit," Luke 23:46.

He's Alive

His spirit body returned to his physical body on the third day and He was alive on earth once again.   He probably first met privately with his mother, Mary, although that's not recorded in the gospels.

John 20:10-16

"The disciples therefore departed again to their home. But Mary (Mary Magdalene) stood at the sepulchre without, weeping. Now as she was weeping, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And she saw two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been laid. They say to her: 'Woman, why weepest thou?' She saith to them: 'Because they have taken away my Lord; and I know not where they have laid him.' When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing; and she knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith to her: 'Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?' She, thinking it was the gardener, saith to him: 'Sir, if thou hast taken him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.' Jesus saith to her: 'Mary.' She turning, saith to him: 'Rabboni (which is to say, Master)'".

"But I tell you the truth: it is expedient to you that I go: for if I go not, the Paraclete will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you."

The Paraclete

Jesus left the earth but sent the Paraclete to abide with each of us forever. "Advocate", "intercessor", "teacher", "helper", "comforter", are all words used to describe the Holy Spirit and the Spirit's purpose. Spirit God is always with us, willing to help us in any way. The Spirit often communicates with us through physical signs which we must watch for, but also through thoughts, answers and guiding directions placed in our souls, accessble as intuitions.

(The Holy Spirit has helped me as a design engineer. The Spirit spoke to me a design change that became very important in the final design of a medical product. The Spirit God will help you, if you ask, and sometimes when you don't ask.)

The Science behind Communion

Since Jesus God is alive, both God and human, it was necessary for him to create what became a very controversial concept for him to be with us as the Spirit is always. Many of His disciples turned away from him when he said, "If any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread that I will give, is my flesh, for the life of the world." The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" Then Jesus said to them: "Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him". John 6:52-57

Jesus did not say these words to create a symbol!   He explained the concept clearly at the Last Supper: "While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, 'Take and eat; this is my body.' Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, 'Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.'" Matthew 26:26-28   When we bless the bread and wine, using his words, and at the moment when we eat and drink the bread and wine, they become his body and blood. They enter our blood stream as nutrients and reach the neurons of our brains which are communicating continuously with our souls. "He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him." The Creator of the universe abides in us. "Now you are clean by reason of the word, which I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine: you the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing." John 15:3-5

We should receive Jesus in this manner often.

A Christian Creed

I believe in the Trinity, the one and only God in three Persons, the Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit.   Jesus is the Creator of the universe and everything in it.   Jesus was conceived by the Virgin Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit and was born of Mary.   During His life on earth He taught us how to live.   For the sins of mankind He suffered, was crucified, died, and was buried.   On the third day He arose again.   After meeting with His disciples, He ascended into heaven, sending the Holy Spirit to be our helper, advocate, and comforter.   When our physical bodies die, we will meet with Jesus who will judge us based on how we treated others.   Those he selects will receive new physical bodies and enjoy the new earth and new universe He will create.   They will have a life everlasting. Amen


The Trinity

There are some Christians who have difficulty in accepting the Truth that there are three persons in one God. "The heart cannot rejoice in something the mind cannot accept." Hugh Ross   Let us begin with some definitions.

Merriam-Webster   Note: Those definitions that are used in the following discussion are highlighted.
Simple: readily understood,
Complicated: difficult to analyze, understand, or explain,
Complex: involving a lot of different but (logically) related parts,
trinity (not capitalized): a group of three closely related persons,
Trinity (capitalized): the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three persons in one Godhead,
God: the supreme or ultimate reality; the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe; The Supreme Being; the Ultimate Reality; the incorporeal divine Principle ruling over all as eternal Spirit; infinite Mind; a being or object that is worshipped as having more than natural attributes and powers; one controlling a particular aspect or part of reality; a person or thing of supreme value; a powerful ruler.

Discussion: It would seem Merriam-Webster presents a clear understanding of the word, Trinity, but not of the word, God. The word God appears to be part of the problem Christians are having with the Trinity.

Our Creator did not leave us with many complicated mysteries. For example, Creation is simple, but complex.   Jesus used names for the Persons in the Trinity, just as the Merriam-Webster dictionary reminds us; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God, best referred to as the Trinity so as to avoid the mystery (mess) mankind has added to the word God.

Here is an earthly example: I am sure there is a corporation somewhere who owns three separate companies, each in a different market; a complex organization. A CEO heads each of the companies. When they join in conference, they act as one President; a trinity. Separately, however, each one has corporate executive powers.

As you know, you are at once a Body, a Spirit, with a Soul, yet you are one person. Your Spirit (you) can separate from your Body and return and be you, a Body, a Spirit with a Soul. If your Body and Spirit are one person, can you see how the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit can be one God?
