To Jeffrey: You are in denial
Submitted by Richard Lion heart (United States), Feb 27, 2006 at 22:13Dear J,
You asked me to prove to You where in the Bible Jesus calls himself the Son of God and I did. You asked me to show you where in the Bible where the Holy Trinity is Justified I did. So why do you remain in Denial. What does the Bible say about the Holy Trinity.
Matthew 28:19 "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"
2 Cor. 13:14, The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
You said in the Bible people are called sons and daugthers of God. Yes, meaning no longer in bondage to sin. Let's see what Paul says:
"The proof that you are sons is that God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts: the Spirit that cries, ?Abba, Father', and it is this that makes you a son; you are not a slave any more; and if God has made you son, then He has made you heir" (Gal 4:6-7).
You say you don't believe Jesus is the Son of God. Let's see what Jesus says about people like you.
11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
There is no other alternative for Salvation Jeffrey. Salvation is only through Christ Jesus. Let's what happens to those who reject that Salvation.
34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him....
