skmiller, It is so nice to hear from a fellow Christian and I thank you for writing. For the Christian, believeing in The Holy Trinity is no problem as most of them accept The Bible as The Inspired Word of God, inerrant and complete, but, there are some skeptics who know what theybelieve but not why they believe it and that is where folks like you and I come in.

I'll give you a for instance: First, you will not find the name Jesus anywhere in The Old Testament. Second: you will not find the word Trinity anywhere in either the Old or New Testaments. If you can find just one instance in The New Testament (record) where Jesus ever said He didn't know the answer to a question you have dis-proved omniscience (all knowing). Jesus didn't know the day or the hour of His return, and He turned and said into the crowd "who touched me, not you touched me, but who". These are but a few of the instances where a cultist will challenge you. That is why scholarship is so important.

Here's a good one to chew on and I'll follow through on it so you will understand what I am saying and how important it is to understand the nature of The One God. " Hebrews 13, vs 8 says that Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever". What is the writer of Hebrws really sayng? Well was He Jesus in The Old Testament? No, He was The Angel of The Lord on The Plains of Mamre in Genesis 14, for Abraham called Him Lord; and who was He before He became flesh in John 1, He was The Word who became flesh and dwelt among us (and we beheld His Glory, the Glory as of The only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. And who will He be when He returns? He will be King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Much of the New Testament is an Apologetic Document, men were giving reasons for the Faith that they held. And a lot of the New Testamnt is discussion within the Godhead PRIOR to The Incarnation of Jesus, it was conversation in eternity past of what was to come. So you see my friend, it's not as simple as it seems.

Jesus was NOT there before Abraham on the plains of Mamre, but The Angel of The Lord was and He had to be The Pre-incarnate Christ. Islam does not accept Jesus as God because they don't believe in the Holy Trinity, they think we worship three separate gods instead of one God in Three persons. Muhammed couldn't accept the Testimony of Genesis because it didn't fit Satan's plan for his life. It's that simple.

What a wonderful time to be alive as we have the Honor of presenting the Gospel to all nations and to tell them about the unconditional love that God has for them. However: we cannot have a schitzephrenic (?) Gospel whereby we tell them how much God loves them and not tell them what it is going to cost them if they reject that love. Judgement i the last resort, Love is His message to all who will believe. You keep up the good work too my brother. In His Service-EuGene
