The topic about GOD is perhaps the least understood, most debated, most confusing, and most controversial topic of all — even among Bible-believing Christians (surprisingly). Yet, it’s obviously THE most important topic! Everyone should get to know God very well.
Beliefs about God range from only one God Being to three God Beings. Which is correct? Some also contend that Jesus Christ was only a man, while others say He is also God. Which is really correct? And how can we prove these claims?
We wouldn’t be surprised if most have already made up their minds. They may not care to read any further, lest the truth disturb and contradict their long-held beliefs. But if what you believe is really true, you shouldn’t fear, because the truth will always prevail. To just intentionally ignore the subject is not intellectual honesty. Instead, it would just make Satan happy to keep humans continually blinded spiritually. Please remember that, apart from being a murderer, he is also the “father of lies” (John 8:44).
Christ said, “the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Even from prejudice? Let’s be open-minded before making or returning to our own conclusions.
But first, why is there so much confusion and ignorance? Let us begin to objectively examine the three most influential causes.
