A precious member and I were discussing the differences we have on this forum of believers. Now that the lines are being drawn again, I thought I would list four staples of the Christian faith. As God is my strength, I will never stray from these:

1. God the Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

2. The blood of Jesus for the remission of sins

3. There is one mediator between God and man: Christ Jesus

4. Jesus is the way, truth, and the life - apart from Him, there is no other name by which men can be saved.

There are obviously many other issues that we may differ on, but it's these points that we build upon as Christians.


What say you - do these four points stray from your belief?

Depends... #1 - does that mean God is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit or do you just mean the main characters are God the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit...

Nowhere in any text/records do we find one element of disagreement between the Father, the Son, and His spirit. Rather they bare witness that they are One:

"They" pronounced their intention of making man in "their" own image.

The Father declared His pleasure in His Son.

The Son gave us the Holy Spirit, Who leads us back to the Father.

1 X 1 X 1 = 1.

Hear oh Israel, the Lord thy God is one. (Duet 6:4)

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)
