CREO SANA DOCTRINA
Nuevo Ano, neva tema, pero con el mismo meta: para defender nuestra fe por conocimiento de nuestras creencias. Hay muchas cosas que Cristianos no saben de la Santa Biblio y no pueden explicar; tambien, los que no creen en JesuCristo como Dios tienen mucha informacion de la Biblia y puede conversar en los versiculos y palabras de la Biblia.
La diferencia es: Los que no tienen la aydua del Espiritu Santo, a ellos, la Santa Biblia es SOLO UN LIBRO…. Un texto entre los otros textos sagrados. A los que creen, la Santa Biblia es un explicacion del VERBO, DIOS MISMO.
Vamos a empezar con LA TRINIDAD, porque es la mas facil, pero todavia la mas compleja, de las doctrinas cristinas.
As we go forward, we will continue having these via ZOOM until such time as Redeemer seems it good for in-home meetings. Tonight’s meeting is from my house, but I hope that going forward, we can start again with having the meetings at the church for those who want to attend in person or over ZOOM
Slides - worldviews and how to recognize them.
TRINITY – without the Trinity, God will always be distant, separate, and cold. With the Trinity, God is both superior AND intimate with humanity, and it is the doctrine of the TRINITY which is both the most often attacked, most easily attacked, most easily misunderstood, and hardest to explain to those who have not accepted Christ and thus are filled with the Holy Spirit.
MATEO 28:19 – Go then and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit.
BAPTISM OF JESUS
Baptism by water and its importance for redemption of humanity runs throughout the OT
JESUS Baptism has the Trinity explicitly in THREE of ALL FOUR GOSPELS
1) TRINITY NOT A WORD IN THE BIBLE
a. Progressive revelation
b. Old Testament – God protecting them in the middle of polytheists. Needed to cement the concept of ONE GOD
c. Paul letter that describes the progressive revelation.
ii. Colossians 1:25-27 25 I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness— 26 the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. 27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
2) ARGUMENT = too difficult to understand. Makes no sense.
RESPONSE = not everything has to make sense. WE must at times be satisifed with knowing that our limited brains cannot completely conceive of the concept
Colossians 1:15-17 5 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
