Should You Believe in the Trinity?
AGAINST THE WATCHTOWER
The September 11th, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New
York City revealed the depth of hatred by religious "pure"
monotheists. Their actions reveal that Yahweh of Judaism, Allah of
Islam, and Jehovah of the Watch Tower are distant, unlovable, and
vengeful gods. Christians of Christendom have been
reviled and attacked continuously in print and deed by
these "pure" monotheists. For example, a Christian
would have to renounce Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior to become a
citizen of the nation of Israel. Likewise, Christians are grossly
discriminated against in most Islamic countries around the world.
Jehovah's Witnesses pride themselves for being peaceful yet
Christendom is unjustly attacked in print by the Watch Tower magazine
on a regular basis. Just one example out of many would be the Watch
Tower of March 15, 1996 on page 10: "Chief among those disloyal to
God are the clergy of Christendom."
The element that is missing in "pure" monotheism is love. The
various gods of the "pure" monotheists are incapable of love since
they were all alone before creation. For love to exist there must be
a person or object to love by the person giving love. Evidence of
this can be seen in the Qur'an of Islam where the word love
is used less than ten times. Instead of love, the "pure"
monotheistic religions resort to submission, domination, and self
salvation through so-called good works. However, the
God of Christendom has always been a God of love since each Person of
the Trinity is co-equal and eternal. God in His love for human beings
was manifested so that we would have a tangible Person to love and
have as our Redeemer. His name is Jesus Christ. Saint Augustine wrote
about the love that God the Father has for us as demonstrated
through our Lord Jesus Christ in the tenth book of his Confessions.
"How have You loved, good Father, who spared not Your only Son, but
delivered Him up for us ungodly! How have You loved us, for whom He
that thought it no robbery to be equal with You, was made subject
even to the death of the cross, He alone, free among the dead, having
to lay down his life, and power to take it again: for us to You both
Victor and Victim, and therefore Victor, because the Victim; for us
to You both Priest and Sacrifice, and therefore Priest because the
Sacrifice; making us to You, of servants, sons, by being born of You,
and serving us."
Thus I invite you to experience the grace of the Lord Jesus
Christ, the love of the Father, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
by falling in love with Jesus Christ. For those of you who have
experienced the love of God, go and proclaim the Lord Jesus Christ,
by the power of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father in
both word and deed. Amen.
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him, all creatures here below.
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
