Is God schizophrenic?
Big Question
What is the trinity?
What do you know about Jehovah’s Witnesses? Weird Facts about JW’s
They don't believe in military service, national anthems or voting. They don't celebrate holidays. They don't accept blood transfusions
They believe it is God’s will to “abstain from blood” (Genesis 9:4; Leviticus 17:10; Deuteronomy 12:23; Acts 15:28,29). They limit contact with non-Jehovah's Witnesses They believe sins require two witnesses. Only 144,000 people get to go to heaven. Jesus is actually just the arc angel Michael.
Is this a heresy ?
JW’s don’t believe in Hell Can you deny the existence of Hell and be a Christian?
No JW’s deny the trinity. Why do they believe the trinity is false? Turn with me to
Colossians 1:15-20
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
They would read vs 15 literally as if Jesus was born and came into existence. Is this what this passage means?
all things were created through him and for him.
Jesus created all Greek word all He is fully God - all things are healed together by him.
What is the Trinity?
The Trinity means that there is one God who eternally exists as three distinct Persons — the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Stated differently, God is one in essence and three in person. Why isn’t this a contradiction? Video Can you deny the trinity and be a Christian? Why? The word trinity is not in the Bible.
No, it denies the very nature of who God is.
There is one God who eternally exists as three persons
The trinity show us who God is. Who has heard that God is love? Could God be love if he wasn’t the trinity?
Nope Salvation? Could we be saved if God wasn’t three in person yet one God?
Father - must see justice done - wrath Son - takes the wrath of God on himself Spirit - changes our hearts to be able to love God. The Trinity reveals the gospel
There was a father who loved the son
What should we do when they show up Piper
Ask them if they are ok with us praying to Jesus and asking if he will show up.
