The religion of Christianity is one of the prevalent forms of religion, and it is most widely spread. There are over three billion followers and has many sects around the world. While each sect has different customs, all Christians believe that there is only one God and creator of the universe. Within this God, there is God the father (creator of the universe), God the Son (Jesus or Christ, the Messiah), and God the Holy Spirit (The actual presence of God that is in us or around us but is not visually apparent). The people of this religion believe Jesus, born of a virgin mother, and died on the cross for our sins, and resurrected three days later. Followers of Christ believe that Christ was God’s son and the true Messiah, sent to earth to free us from our sins through salvation. Achievement of Salvation by believing in Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. When a person reaches salvation, they are safe from the grasp Hell and will spend their afterlife in heaven with God. The Holy Bible, a book created by Jesus’s followers, explains Jesus’s life and teachings. All Christians believe the Holy
I will like to crave your indulgence to the fact that "Nicene concept of Trinity" is never stated in the Bible, and it is that early Christians as well as the scriptures clearly points out the fact that Jesus was fully divine and pre-existent. For the fact that, none of the early Christian theologians fully asserted the doctrine of the Trinity, not even a speculation about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. According to the father of the paganism description of Trinity "God can in no way be described." (Schindler 148).
Throughout this semester I have learned many of the different christian doctrines. Many of them were challenged and also accepted in my weekend trip throughout Saint Louis. I think one of the most important topics that was discussed during my weekend was the consideration of the Trinity. In the Christian thought the word “trinity” is a term used to talk about the Christian doctrine that God exists as a unity of three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Three of the staple thoughts include; God is three person; each person is divine; there is only one God. In their relations to one another, they are stated to be on in all else, co-equal, co-eternal and consubstantial. With these three thoughts about the Trinity you also must remember that Christianity is a monotheistic religion.
A Christian worldview is different for many believers, but the one aspect that ties it together and makes it unified, is the belief in one God and his son Jesus as a Savior. This is the foundation of Christianity. It is centered on the belief that God is an autonomous God, who loves people enough to restore them through salvation and redemption instead of vengeance. Following the belief of Christianity affects interactions with other denominations, non-believers, and cultures. Christianity provides courage, knowledge, and understanding to face the struggles of life.
Christianity is centered on the Gospel as proclaimed by Jesus, the son of God. The fundamental message offered by Jesus is of compassion and love. This message is astonishing to most people as Jesus instructs us to love our enemies, a concept which was not spoken of prior. Due to the loving and forgiving nature of God, Christianity still remains an excellent religion for all humanity (Comparing Christianity, 2014). Within Christianity, the Holy Trinity, God the father, son, and Holy Spirit, are the divine individuals and the Bible is the Holy scripture.
According to the Christian worldview, God exists in a unique form known as the Trinity. This defines God as a singular being with three distinct persons: the Father, Son, and Spirit. Each person has a unique role: the Father is the Sovereign Creator (Psalm 103:19, New American Standard Bible); the Son is the Messiah and the firstborn over all creation (Colossians 1:15, NASB); and the Spirit is an Intercessor and Helper (John 14:26, NASB). All three persons comprise the single figure of God. This concept, while complex, is pivotal to the Christian worldview as one begins to analyze the overarching message of the Gospel.
Christianity is the belief that Jesus is Gods son and that when he died he became the God, the Son, and the Holy spirit, known as the Trinity. It is believed that if you believe in the Trinity you will have salvation and eternal life in heaven. People who
Christianity is the belief in God, Jesus, his son, and the Holy Spirit. Christians believe that God’s son, Jesus, was born from a virgin, died on a cross for the sins of the world and rose again after three days. They believe that God created everything from the water, to the air and sky, to animals, to humans, absolutely everything. Christians also believe in a place after death that reunites God and all his creation.
The Trinity believes God is three persons that exist in one being – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The scripture commonly used as a basis for this belief is John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God” (Engelbrecht, 2009) If you ask a Christian to explain any biblical doctrine they can easily offer an explanation. However, if you ask them to explain the Trinity, they will cannot. This begs the question, “how is it you follow a doctrine which you cannot explain?”
According to the Christian worldview, there is one true God who is our all-powerful creator. The one true God, however, has three parts in one, call the Trinity. Although the word Trinity is not in the bible, theologians developed the understanding of the Trinity to explain why Christians worship, both Christ and
The debate concerning the Trinity has been a constant debate throughout history. This debate has continued on through modern day. As we study the different opinions and beliefs on God the Father and His Son, we can see a pattern were the Trinity is not fully understood by many. In this paper, I will discuss The Arian Controversy. I will describe what Arius believed concerning God and His Son. Then I will share my thoughts and facts that will show what Arius taught was not correct.
Finally, Christianity is the most prominent religion practiced throughout the world with over 2 billion followers. Christianity is based upon the teachings of the said son of God Jesus of Nazareth and his disciples. It is originally taught in Aramaic and later Greek, and its teachings can be found in the modern Christian Bible. Today’s Christian Bible is divided in two parts, the Old Testament, written accounts and teachings before the birth of Jesus, which is what Judaism uses, and then the New Testament, which are stories and teachings that involve Jesus and his disciples. The Christian faith establishes a Holy Trinity, where God is embodied in three different aspects, God himself, in his son Jesus and finally in the Holy Spirit. This core
The word ‘Trinity’ does not occur anywhere in the Holy Bible. However, that has never stopped Trinitarians from finding what they believe are broad hints that the Holy Trinity is, like buried treasure, to be found within the text of some biblical passages. In fairness, we will consider the most popular of these and then make up our own minds always with the sound proviso that long-held religious traditions cannot be maintained if they contradict the Scriptures because our beliefs must rest firmly on the teachings of the Bible.
Christians believe that Jesus is both God and man, incarnation of God, and man -gives man two natures, physical and divined that they are united in one person. Thus the mystery of God becoming a human being, Jesus, and suffered and died, and Mary (Jesus' mother) was the mother of God. God resolved himself to mankind in 3 ways, as God the father, God the sun and the Holy Spirit. From this we can see that Christianity is based on the
