The biggest problem with Christianity is the idea of three (3) persons in God (Holy Trinity), which makes sense in some religions where different entities form the Godhead — for example, Hinduism. Non-Christians, like Muslims, argue that God can’t have a son and that there’s only one entity in God.
My concept (explanation to non-Christians) is that there three (3) interpretations of God. This simply means that God is everywhere and can even present Himself as a normal man walking in the street beside you. In other words, God has the ability to be everywhere and/or anything in Creation at the same time.
Of course, the Bible prayed to the Father. My previous explanation clearly fails here. At the same time, nonbelievers mock the idea of Jesus (the Son) praying to God (the Father) — in other words, praying to himself.
Today’s Lent devotional comes from Jeremiah 31:27-34.
“27 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast. 28 And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the Lord. 29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge. 30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge. 31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” (Jeremiah 31:27-34 KJV, using YouVersion for Android)
