The Truth for Confused Mind

Part 5 – Truth for Confused Mind Series – When two characters of the Bible claim both the same title or teachings, that signals our mind about which one is real.

The doctrine of Jesus’ Oneness movement is not an issue or problem for any popular preachers in Christianity. These preachers never step out to inform their congregation members that the doctrine of Jesus Only group is not Biblical. This may be because they are confused. After all, it is written that Jesus is God. When Jesus Himself said that He was God, He was confronted by the Jews who accused Him of blasphemy, which was punishable under the law during that time. Jesus being fully God and man became a considerable discussion because of the growing population believing in the doctrine of Oneness.

Why are Christians so intimidated when they hear about more than one God? Even those Christians aside from Catholics that believe in the Holy Trinity are not exempted from criticism and are scared of omitting Jesus as part of the family of God. If your last name is Holy and comes from a lineage of royalty, it is automatic that it needs to be addressed with honor.

In Spiritual mode, honoring God the Almighty and the Mighty Son is given, which means praising, and worshipping God because He is our Father, the Sahumanity humanity. We honor the Son because of His redemptive work when the Father sent Him on a mission. We also address a person as a Reverend when he does a reverential deed worthy of being addressed as Reverend.

When we honor the Father and the Son, they deserve to be praised because honoring them is not a title but an attribute; that’s why it is different from the physical world.  

When Jesus said they could be gods, they could be gods because that Word came from God. Anyone who disagrees with Him may think it is an insult because they know very well that they are not worthy to be a god. Firstly, they do not know their Bible very well. Since the accusers of Jesus are legalistic and rooted in believing in One God, anyone that will speak of many Gods is an enemy of their faith, and that is blasphemy punishable by death.

When the church was divided after the success of the reformation, the movement began a noticeable birth of self-righteous Christians who went against other Christians that were not in line with their newfound knowledge. They called themselves enlightened Christians responsible for carrying the truth across the board.

Catholics sometimes become victims of being branded as pagans and other cultic groups. When you see Christians persecuting other Christians, you feel embarrassed being a newborn again, Christian or Protestant.

Most Christians believe in the teachings of the Trinity as three separate entities functioning in the exact nature but differing in style. The Oneness believers proclaim Christ as the entire three being one, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. These groups of believers proclaim Jesus Christ as the Almighty One and Creator. The third groups under the watchful eyes of the self-righteous are Christian Deism. These are believers in God that do not get involved in human activity after creating the universe, live with instinct and free will and believe in being responsible for respecting the law of nature to govern the world. They follow what nature dictates to do and not to do. They do not believe in revelation and any doctrines of any church. They are not in bondage to artificially manufactured religious practices.

Christian denomination causes separation of the Body of Christ instead of creating one solid, healthy body functioning for the glory of the Father. These divisions end up hurting the body as a whole. It is like an auto-immune of the human body attacking its own body. Denomination causes division, weakening the faith of many and, thereby, decide to leave the faith eventually. Oneness is coming on very strong, and even the mainline Christians are slowly turning like them. Some already notice it, and they are turning to believe in Deism. 

Christians branded those under the law as a legalist, and I will not be surprised if the time comes they will call Deism a naturalist. Deism is a belief in following the natural law, such as following the time of nature when it is time to fish, spreading seeds on the land, when it is going to rain, and when danger is imminent. Like the birds, they know when danger is coming, like the other animals. The sea waves and the wind blow and strength, which shows signs of precaution, is the law of nature that Deism believes. Believing in nature gives more Wisdom to this group of believers on how to live their lives; no worries about who will be saved and who is not.  

However, at the other Christian churches, the doctrine of prosperity teaching is losing its ground, and the teaching of “once saved” is always saved” is also “slowly disappearing due to knowledge of the process of salvation. Justification by faith alone is very confusing to some believers dealing with “money doesn’t grow on trees” because we need to work on our salvation. Giving more to Jesus is another practice of asking for more collection money that will come to pass. There is also confusion about the teachings of Paul to believe only the Jesus that he was preaching, while on the other hand, the four gospels teach us four different Jesus.

I would suggest that church leaders prioritize this area in Bible studies, teach the members proper Christian living, and feed the hungry with the words of God. The Bible study is slowly disappearing too, and if there is any, the Pastors are not involved. Spiritual guidance is significant because, without it, members with a lack of knowledge or ignorance of the Word of God will be quickly snatched by the influence of the spirit of darkness and walk away from the faith. The church governance is slow to notice that church members are getting smaller and smaller because they are busy with their plans and not taking care of the spiritual growth of the members.   Members are losing interest and becoming frequently absent from attending the service, and are more inclined to attend a service and get the same feeling of blessing in the comfort of their home.  

Deism is getting more robust, so it is the Oneness doctrine. If this belief system stays on consistently and acts now and unites, it may hurt the other denominations. But, on the other hand, if God Almighty allows this confusion and hurts the children (Immatured believers), it pushes Him to act with His natural power quickly. So Deism- believes in God, Oneness- believes in the Son,  and Trinitarian- believes in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Oneness believers teach that Jesus is the Father and claim that Almighty God manifests Himself as the Son and inseparable,  so there is only one. In other words, to make it less confusing, if someone is considering the “s belief, t “ink that everything that Jesus is the “all in all.” He is God; He is the Creator. He is the God that spoke to Noah, Abraham, and Moses, and Jesus was the one that saved the Israelites in Egypt. In other words, anything that was supposed to be the work of the Father was replaced with Jesus; the Son also became the Father, not a separate person with separate power and authority.

The Trinity believers teach that Jesus is the second person of the Godhead, the third person is the Holy Spirit, and the Father is the head. Three separate persons in order of the Godhead (Family of God). We should think wholeheartedly about offering our bodies as a sacrifice and devote all our lives to the one true God.  

The following are the steps towards Wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of the truth of the Word of God. 

1st, God did not give names or names to His church; 

2nd, God did not pick what kind of building and places, clothes to wear, and time and day (since God was speaking to the Jews, He gave the Jews which is Sabbath day worship day; 

3rd, Is Sunday more comfortable for worshippers, wherein Christians proclaSon’ssus Christ’s resurrection day? This is the Son’s day of worship; 

4th, is any day on the 7th day of the week available to believers due to the work schedule? It is probably more appealing to medical professionals, law enforcement, first responders, and many more, as we can call it more appropriate to worship God without distraction. 

5th, any day to worship God in Spirit and truth is one-on-one with God. Many receive revelations practicing this method. We show God that He is not forgotten, that He always has room in our hearts, and that connecting with God is communicating with God.  

6th, any day to worship God through prayer by meditation is the kind of worship to get closer to our Creator. Everything will be the creation of our mind which God created for us anyway, so why not use it for His glory? To get in contact, it needs techniques and practice. We can always create a conversation with God with a topic of our own or God, and we can pick our place, like in the garden or any quiet room in the house free from distraction will be appropriate.

7th, any day to worship God in Spirit and truth through prayer meditation: soul cleansing and renewal of Spirit guided by the Bible verses. There are verses to get closer to our Creator and cleanse our lost souls. Because of our imperfections, we are always in the shadow of deceit and temptation, and we need to set our souls free to renew our spirits renewed every day.

We are given free will, and God, our Father, will never interfere with our decisions. However, when we make an error, we are responsible for every action and decision that must be corrected. 

The truth about worship is not explained to us by those who passed this belief system from generation to generation. As Christians, we are groomed to worship God on Saturday (Adventists) or Sunday (Evangelicals). Evangelicals and Adventists believe in salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone, but God the Father is not mentioned here, and even salvation is a gift of humanity. Anyone who avoids fellowship and worship with Catholics considers themselves protestant, but Protestantism is an old term for those who have protested against Catholics. It is being erased, and they would prefer to be called Born Again Christians.

If no one agrees or ignores the proposed day of worship, it is yours to decide. Anything that will enhance your life without worries and distractions will benefit your spiritual growth. Faith comes bundled with enthusiasm to seek the truth and hopes to find it. There are so many teachings out there, and youJesus’find the majority of it is central to Jesus’ life and resurrection. Still, some Christians say no to both of these doctrines because they see that the Bible teaches us that there is more to Jesus.

Some of these Oneness Christians believe that Jesus created all things and that He is the Word that existed before the foundation of the world. Please note that the Word only became in the name of Jesus when he appeared in the flesh. God sent the Son down from heaven through a Virgin birth to become flesh. Jesus Only believers, without fear of taking out the involvement of the Father, and even acknowledging the Father as the Almighty One, is not part of their notion. Only One Almighty God, the Almighty Father, will never share His glory with others. Jesus said that the Father is mightier than Him; why do we need proof when Jesus already declared it?

The doctrine of the Holy Trinity was written, and it was not handed to be seen by all but by whom God wants to show it. But, as God said, I will do i”.

The truth is, 1Corinthian 8:6 that says: “yet for us, there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through wh” all things came and through God’s we live.” This verse and the rest of God’s Word teach us the simplicity of His Word and are not confusing as others see it. 

The Almighty Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit formed a triune God with precisely the exact nature but a different style. The Spirit of the Father is solely His, and the Word is His attributes, that when He uttered this Word, it exists either it forms it, made or creates something in existence. The Son with Spirit and flesh has two natures, while the Holy Spirit is the Spirit that dwells in humanity and is with the Spirit of man, which blesses us with a passion for God and compassion for man. The truth can be found, and when you ask, the answers will be given to you, seek and you will find, and “knock, and the door will open. 

Paul said, “For if he that comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received, or another gospel, which you have “not accepted, you might well bear with him.” 2 Corinthians 11:14. During that time proselytes are going on. Paul is very adamant and very strong in what he is preaching. Many apostles feared him because he was known to persecute the followers of Jesus. The four gospels signified four different Jesus, something to be clarified by the church’s leaders. There should be no conflict in these teachings.

In 1 Cor, Indians Paul says: Even there are many gods and many lords whether in heaven or on earth, there still is one God, the Father Almighty whom all things are, and we are in Him and we in him; and the one Lord Jesus Christ, the mighty Son. These alone speak of God, the Creator of all the things on earth, and the things in heaven and above are all His creations and masterpieces. Therefore, we must be thankful to the Son that through Him, we learned all about Him, and through the sacrifices, He successfully redeemed us from our sins.

Peter and Paul preached two different Gospels, confusing people about which was true. One was the Gospel of Circumcision, wherein people had to submit to the cutting of skin and had to feel pain, the Gospel of Paul, which was the Un-Circumcision which, was more bearable because there was no submission to physical pain but only dealt with the ci “circumcision of the heart. It” was termed the “Gospel of the Grace of God;” Acts 20:24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Which one will you choose when both have a promise of salvation? Naturally, the painless doctrine will be chosen.

Paul stated that what we eat or do not eat does not make us more spiritual.

Without holy affections, all human knowledge is worthless. You can call as many gods and lords as possible; all we need is only One True God, the Father Almighty, and One True Lord, the mighty Son Jesus Christ everything will be taken with love and care. Then, I know I will have peace of mind and be safer and more secure. I submit.
