My Friend,

Thank you for your honesty in answering my questions.It could very well be that you have never been exposed to the record of The Old Testament in the sense that it is a document that can be compared to other views, bearing in mind that The Old Testament is the beginning of God's record in His dealings with mankind. Should you ever visit my homeland I hope you will come with a desire to learn and with peace in you heart. Oh yes, we have our troubles and disagreements just as any other people would have but we try to answer them with reasoned thought and dialogue and let the Scriptures be our teacher. After all, we didn't write the Book and neither did Muhammed;; Note: The New Testament was complete at the birth of Muhammed so he has no excuse as to the availability of information about Abraham and Sarah and Hagar.

The Old Testamnt and The Holy Trinity: Here we go>>>>>>>>>>>>The Bible begins with God and not an argument for His existence and He said "let us make", so there is more than one person (as best you and I can understand the word person). Sin entered through Eve and Adam so God set in motion His plan to defeat the serpent and said: "I will put enmity between thee (the serpent) and the woman, and between thy seed (serpent) and her seed (the one who is to come, the suffering servant). There are now two persons mentioned and now the third: "And The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters" So the Spirit is part of the nature of God, Thats three parts coming from and stated as being present during the Ceation. Things equal to each other are equal to the same thing. Now do the Scriptures say that God speaks of having a Son from Himself in the Old Testament? Yes He does: In the Book of Proverbs: It says;"Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his Son's name, if thou canst tell".

Then forward to The Prophet Isaiah and Chapter 9, vs 6: For unto us a child is born,, uno us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, (el Gibor) The everlasting Father, (abba) The Prince of Peace. I could go on and on and on with quotations from The Old Testament and the evidence is striking and irrefutable and as it builds there is only One Person who fulfils that prophecy and that person is The Lord Jesus Christ.

God says He has a Son, You can never make yourself acceptble to God through your own efforts as that is Salvation by works, (the most dispicable doctrine ever divised). I f you can admit that you have violated the law of God and are sorry for the sins you have committed and that by nature you are a sinner and are willing to turn from those sins and accept God's sacrifice which was given for you on the cross of Calvary then His wn words becom your by faith in what He said, and that was: "Whosever cometh to me I will in no way cast out". Jesus has never turned anyone down, and you need only to accept Him at His word. In His Service-EuGene
