It’s reassuring and comfortable to be in the majority, especially when it comes to religion. No one wants to be rejected for being out on the fringe or be accused of belonging to some heretical cult. Our herd instinct is pretty strong and most people have a lot of confidence in scholars on religious issues, especially when all the experts seem to agree. Of course, sometimes the experts can be horribly mistaken… like when the chief priests and scribes wanted to kill Jesus and got everyone else to go along with the idea. Here’s something to think about… is the Christian majority just wrong about God? Could it be the majority been lead down a path of platonic philosophy that has nothing to do with Biblical truth? We think that’s a good question.
An Ancient Gospel That Pre-dates the Trinity
We preach an ancient gospel that pre-dates the trinity and proclaims there is just one God, the Father and Jesus Christ is His only begotten Son. Yahweh is the name of the Father and Jesus of Nazareth is His Christ or Anointed One. The Father is self-existent and eternal while His Son Jesus Christ was miraculously born of a virgin in Bethlehem. Jesus was crucified under Pontius Pilate and then raised from the dead (yes, He was really DEAD) and now is seated at the right hand of God. This isn’t hard to understand and you can believe it without resorting to the heady intellectualism that Greek philosophy fashioned into the doctrine of the trinity. All you have to do is resort to the scriptures.
Modern Christians are Embracing This Ancient Truth
What you just read was the simple faith of most believers in the first three centuries of the Christian religion. This Biblical and understandable faith eventually fell into official disfavor thanks to the efforts and councils of the philosopher/theologians we call the “church fathers”. Fortunately, a growing number of Christians in our time are beginning to ignore the so called “church fathers” and embrace these ancient truths instead! Those of us who believe this Gospel now find ourselves asking a very old question, “Who has believed our report, and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” (Isaiah 53:1) We hope you’ll believe our report… and that God will reveal Himself to you. God bless.
