CONCEPT OF GODCONCEPT OF GOD .... teaching Trinity ? “...Jesus said to them, go forth and make disciples of them and baptize them in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy spirit...” (Gospel of Matthew 28: 19) Some Christian would quote this to justify.. CHRISTIANITY Simple explanation in Matthew 28: 19: These words does not mean that Jesus teaches Trinity, rather the use of the phrase “..in the name of ” signify authoritative basis for preaching.”. Example an ambassador acting on behalf of the government and country will sign “in the name of the head of state and the country, but writing his own name.” The teaching of the religion is with the authority sanction by God, His angel and His Messenger. Just as it is wrong to say that the ambassador is also literally the country, thus it would be wrong to say that the Messenger is also God. REBUTTALSREBUTTALS 52 AllRightsReserved©Zhulkeflee2005
