1. The Lord Jesus Himself taught this belief when a Jew came to ask Him about the greatest commandment. He answered him, "And
Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the
first commandment."(Mark 12:29-30 KJV) If this commandment had been written in the language of the Qur'an, it would have
been "God, our God, is the only (unique) God, the everlasting God."
2.The apsotle Paul declared, "[Is
he] the God of the Jews only? [is he] not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing [it is] one God, which shall
justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. (Romans 3:29-30 KJV).
3. And the apostle
James expressed the same belief saying, "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe,
and tremble." (James 2:19 KJV)
4. The Christian creed was taken from these texts along with others in the
Bible. The Church has been avowing these beliefs for generations saying, "Truly we believe in one God... Creator of heavens
and earth, and the visible and invisible." Read below the meaning of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
THE HOLY TRINITY IN CHRISTIANITY
The doctrine of the holy Trinity in no way means the existence of three gods as some people wrongly imagine. The meaning of
this doctrine is - God is one...
Existing in Himself, so He declared Himself as the Father.
His word, so He declared Himself as the Son, the Word.
Alive in His spirit, so He declared Himself as the Holy
It should not be understood from these names that there is a bodily relationship as in human terms, but
rather it has a spiritual meaning.
These names are not established or invented by man, but they are the words
of divine inspiration in the Holy Book, as you will see from the following references:
1. The Lord Jesus said
to His disciples, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19 KJV) Monotheism is clear in His words, "baptising them in the name."
He did not say "baptising them in the NAMES of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit."
2. John confirms
this understanding: "And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these
three agree in one." (1 John 5:8 KJV)
When comparing the two verses, you find the names of the holy Trinity;
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This is the holy Trinity in the only God in whom we believe.
THE TRINITY IN THE UNITY
The one God, creator of all living things, must have a personal existence Himself.
The one God, who created man
with the ability to speak, must Himself also speak the word.
The one God, who created life in every living being,
must Himself be alive in the spirit.
Therefore, it is certain that a holy Trinity should be in the only God as
I have already clarified. This is our true belief; God is one in the Trinity and not three gods
