Trinity

Text: Deuteronomy 6:4; John 14:11,16

Summary: This sermon uses a piece of rope to explain the Trinity.

ropeProp: a piece of rope with three cords or some twine

Look what I brought with me today. Do you know what it is? [rope] Rope is made of more than one piece of thread. The rope is stronger when the cords are woven in and out among each other. It would not be as strong if it was simply one straight piece. This piece of rope has three cords. Today I want to explain how our God is a trinity.
The word trinity means three in one or threefold. Consider this rope. It has three cords, each equal, separate, but forming one rope. That is how we can try to understand the Trinity of God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. They are all three persons of the one true God.

In Deuteronomy 6:4 the Bible says Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord. At first glance you would think this means there is only one true God. That is correct. There is only one God and all other gods are fakes. There is more to this verse than that. The words for God are used three times (Lord = Jehovah, our God = Elohim, Lord = Jehovah). So even in this verse we are given a clue about the Trinity.

The idea of the Trinity has been shown in the Bible many times. In Genesis 1:26 God says Let us make man in our image. God was speaking of the other members of the Trinity. Again in Genesis 11:7 when God decided to make many languages at the Tower of Babel we read Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. This is God speaking to other members of the Trinity.

Jesus taught us about the Trinity. Listen to these verses. (Read John 14:11,16] Jesus said that he and the Father were one. He also said that he would send the Holy Spirit once he returned to heaven. He also commanded us in Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Jesus clearly taught us that all three persons made up the one true God.

The Trinity is not an easy thing for us to understand. So I hope the example of the rope will help you understand how three things are united in one.

  1. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally?

  5. La Miviludes a eu à s’y pencher depuis quelques années seulement. Mais ils semblent tout autant s’inquiéter des pseudo-sciences qui se répandent que par l’explosion des églises charismatiques qui proposent elles aussi des exorcismes préoccupants. D’ailleurs, en 2018, la Miviludes avait reçu davantage de signalements pour des rituels chrétiens que musulmans. Concernant la roqya, il y a moins de saisines. La mécanique du silence est quoi qu’il arrive simple à comprendre. Il y a une omerta sur cette pratique et les éventuels accidents, car on touche souvent à l’intime, la maladie et la honte qu’elle amène. Tout se fait dans le huis clos des familles. Et je sais de quoi je parle. Il y a aussi peut-être une question d’autres méthodologiques, les faits divers ont toujours, depuis Louisa, été perçu isolés les uns des autres. Il n’y a pas de données institutionnelles en la matière. Ça ne fait donc pas de bruit. Onze ans après Louisa, par exemple, un homme a été découvert à Paris asphyxié, le larynx enfoncé au sous-sol d’une mosquée. L’enquête avait révélé que l’exorciste était monté sur son corps pour expulser les démons et que son pied avait dérapé. On n’en a pas entendu parler médiatiquement et pour cause, l’exorciste saoudien s’est pendu dans sa cellule avant le procès. En l’absence du principal intéressé, l’affaire prenait une tout autre dimension aux assises.
