what are your thoughts about this.
I have recently tried to debate with somebody who argued with me that we believe in 3 Gods, which we of course don't. I said it is one God but in 3 persons.
Gave an example, a triangle is one item but has 3 angles.
Say if you were a beginner on the path of Christianity, how can you logically believe in the Holy Trinity...
Firstly, at the beginning of the OT when God was creating the Universe & there was no mention of Him having a Son.
Secondly, in 10 Commandments it says “You shall have no other gods before Me". So having Jesus as God makes another God as Father and Son are not the same Beings/Deities.
God the Creator is One as otherwise in the Commandment it would have stated "You shall have no other gods before me and my Son" or something between those lines. So, to someone new to Christianity reading these verses would indicate that God is One and no body else is God besides Him.
Thirdly, in the NT Jesus never said "I am God" or "worship me".
So, how do you overcome those questions?
Thank you very much!
As far as your third point ...
He accepted worship in multiple places in the NT. If he were not the divine son of God that would be utterly blasphemous.
Matthew 14:33 says that those who saw Jesus walk on water “worshiped Him.”
John 9:38 says that the blind man whom Jesus had healed, later confessed his belief in Jesus as the Son of God and “worshiped him.”
Matthew 28:9 says Mary Magdalene and the other women visited the empty tomb of Jesus, and the risen Christ appeared to them, “they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him”
Thomas confesses Jesus as his Lord and God in John 20:28
The disciples worshiped him in Luke 24:52
Over and over again Jesus accepts this worship without rebuking it. Worship in this manner is due only to God alone.
