Quote of the Day ~ Lee Strobel on Becoming a Christian

In short, I didn’t become a Christian because God promised I would have an even happier life than I had as an atheist. He never promised any such thing. Indeed, following him would inevitably bring divine demotions in the eyes of the world. Rather, I became a Christian because the evidence was so compelling that Jesus really is the one-and-only Son of God who proved his divinity by rising from the dead. That meant following him was the most rational and logical step I could possibly take.  -Lee Strobel, The Case for Christ: A Journalist’s Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus

  1. Great to see that you accepted Christ as your Savior. I would like to congratulate you and also caution you on your journey that you now embark on. PROVE EVERYTHING. There are many false doctrines out there to trip you up and get you on the wrong track. Especially the doctrine of the Triinity. I think this one doctrine (Created by Man) is one of the most dangerous of all. I dont know which doctrine you follow on the nature of Christ but I strongly urge you to study this doctrine without any partiality. I have found it to be a false doctrine straight from Satan the Devil himself. if you want to discuss it I would be happy to but I strongly urge you to prove everything.

      • God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit?
        CAn you show me that phrase in scripture. That would be very plainly said. I would really like for you to show me those words in scripture.

      • God the Father
        Ephesians 5:20a
        … giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father…

        God the Son
        Hebrews 1:8a
        But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever,…”

        God the Holy Spirit
        Acts 5:3-4
        But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land? 4 While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? Why is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to man but to God.”

        God as co-equal
        Matthew 28:19 says in the “name” not “names” therefor is one God in three
        2 Corinthians 13:14 all three
        1 Peter 1:1b-2a all three

        More verses for Jesus as God
        Acts 3:15 he is the Author of Life
        Rev 1:8 He is Almighty, the Alpha and Omega
        1 Timothy 6:15 Blessed and only Ruler
        John 1:3 the Creator
        John 8:58 I AM
        Romans 9:5 God all over
        2 Peter 1:1 our God and Savior Jesus Christ
        1 John 5:20 He is the true God and eternal life

        “The doctrine of the Trinity, as I have said before, is truth for the heart. The fact that it cannot be satisfactorily explained, instead of being against it, is in its favour. Such a truth had to be revealed; no one could have imagined it.”
        A.W. Tozer

        God is one and God is all three. They are one and co-equal. Something our finite brains could have never thought of.
        The fact that God is one and that God is also in three persons is clear in the bible.
        The verses above are of the three persons and the verses below are of his being one.

        Deuteronomy 6:4
        Romans 3:30a
        Isaiah 44:8b
        1 Corinthians 8:4b

        Each person displays will, emotion and intellect as individuals throughout the Bible. If you would like examples of all three for each person of the Godhead, please let me know.

      • They are one and three at the same time. Something we cannot fully grasp.
        1 Corinthians 13:12 (ESV)
        For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
