Member's Comment: Jesus was sent by God to save the world from the sin and death we inherited from Adam and Eve when they disobeyed him in the Garden of Eden. How could he be God when Jesus tells us in the Lord's prayer how we are to pray to God our Father.”

In Answer to member's comment, the Bible says that we are to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus. Jesus is the mediator, which means that He is the go-between God the Father and men. Jesus is like a bridge. You cross the bridge to get to your destination. So you go through Jesus to get to God the Father.

The following is what the Bible says and this is what we believe.

THE TRINITY: ONE GOD IN THREE PERSONS


The Christian doctrine of the Trinity defines God as three persons, expressed as: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit; "one God in three persons"

The Bible teaches that the Father is God, Jesus is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. The Bible also teaches that there is only one God. Though we can understand some facts about the relationship of the different Persons of the Trinity to one another, ultimately, it is still a mystery to the human mind. However, this does not mean the Trinity is not true or that it is not based on the teachings of the Bible.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES TO JESUS AS GOD

1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) says “...great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh...”

The Word (Jesus) Became Flesh. John 1:1 (NIV) says In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

In John 10:30 (NIV), Jesus said I and the Father are one.”

John 1:18 (NIV) says “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”

Matthew 1:23 says “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him “Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).”

Matthew 28:19 (NIV) says Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

During the Last Supper, just after washing the disciples’ feet, Jesus made a bold statement:

In John 13:13 (NIV), Jesus said “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.”

The New Testament was originally written in Greek. The Greek word for “Lord” is Kurios, meaning “God – Supreme In Authority”.

Revelation 1:8 (NIV) referring to Jesus says “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

1 Timothy 3:16 (NIV) saysBeyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.”

There are many other scriptures that state God as the Father, God as the Son, and God as the Holy Spirit.

We don't fully understand all of this but God said it and we believe it to be so.

Hope this helps.

Blessings,
