|THE three persons of the Godhead, known as the Trinity, and exactly how they are co-related and co-existent, has long been a topic of discussion in the Christian Church.
The Scriptures speak of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit as the one God; this is not so unintelligible to the Christian as is the question of how they are the one God.
The Christian accepts the fact that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three eternal persons are existing as the one God, who is revealed in the Old Testament as Jehovah.
|This is not without reason or question, but is based upon the totality of the revealed Word of God.
The Watchtower magazine, however, teaches that the notion that there is a trinity is a product not of the Holy Scriptures, but of Satan himself:
Reconciliation, 1928, p.101.
The Christian believes that in the nature of the one God, there are three eternal persons. The Jehovah’s Witness is often told something quite different by the Watchtower.
Yet, even where the concept of the Trinity may be most correctly stated, the Society continues on the same page to distort its meaning by presenting the idea that the Trinity doctrine teaches that Jesus and God are the same person:
You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth, 1982, p.39.
Just because Jesus prayed to the Father, or referred to God as His God is not something we should be surprised about. Instead, such passages, such as the one below, should be considered in the context in which they were spoken.
