While buying my car, of all places, the salesman, whom I briefly knew, and I got into a discussion about Jesus. I do not know much about the church of Christ so was surprised to learn that they do not believe in Jesus as God. He believes the bible and pointed out verses that defend his belief. (ie. the fact the Jesus is referred to as the Son of God, that Jesus said He is going to be with the Father, etc.) They are still waiting for Jesus to come.
I referred him to John 1 (among other verses), which I believe are the most pointed verses for the belief that Jesus and the Father are one; that Jesus is God. My rooted belief that Jesus was both God and man does not fit into his belief. He believes he was man only and even the disciples were able to perform miracles. He does not believe in the trinity and , of course, that is a hard belief to defend, in my estimation, with my limited ability. He said that the Trinity was a belief of the Catholic church and is not definitively designated in the Bible.
I am appealing to those of you that might know more about the Church of Christ than I do to help me , prayerfully, be able to show him our belief based on the scripture. Of course, with his belief based on the scripture I pray that God will show me how to approach him. Thank you for any help you can give.
PS I am always amazed at the people God puts into our lives. Perhaps that is the reason I bought the car I did which was not a make I was even seriously considering! Isn’t God spectacular.!
