Christianity means a belief in Trinity and Oneness (monotheism)

Oneness:

- The Christian Creed begins with “Truly we believe in One God”

- The sign of the cross

- 1 Jn 5:7 “There are three that testify in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one” – Jehovah’s witness

Gal 3:20 “God is one”, Jas 2:19, Eph 4:5, 1 Tim 2:5, Jn 5:44, Rom 3:30, Matt 19:17, Mk 12:29 – new testament, old testament – Ex 20:3, Deut 6:4 … prophetic books

  • 2 Cor 13:14 says “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen”

  • We can ask what is 1 + 1 + 1 … we reply that 1 x 1 x 1
