Many people across the globe who are not true believers in Jesus Christ present the argument that all religions and belief systems are the same, including Christianity. They object to any creed, stating that religion has started conflicts of every kind, including major wars. Yet, Communism, which espouses no belief in any kind of deity, is responsible for numerous deaths since its inception.
Proponents of the ecumenical movement which encourages interfaith communication say that Christianity cannot be held in higher regard than any other faith or philosophy because basically, all people worship one and the same God. He simply is called by different names. For instance, Muslims often claim that Islam is similar to other religions because its adherents follow the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob just as Christians and Jews do.
What is commonly ignored, however, is that Christianity teaches an important doctrine based on Biblical truth: that God is 3 persons, and all are 1 and the same God–none else. This teaching is known as the Trinity, comprised of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God, the Holy Ghost. No other religion or philosophy, including Islam, Mormonism, and so on, teaches the Trinity as truly representative of Who the God of the universe is.
Therefore, proponents of belief systems other than Christianity cannot say that all religions have honest common ground on which they can believe and function together. Furthermore, as the world’s religions really are very diverse in what they believe, and distinctively, only Christians say God is triune (i.e. He functions within a 3-person Trinity), then people will proselytize. In other words, if they are honest followers of their own creeds, they cannot help but try to persuade others to believe what they believe.
Many individuals argue that the Bible teaches the doctrine of the Trinity in only one passage: 1 John 5:7. In this verse, the apostle John states: “For there are 3 that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit; and these 3 are 1.” (NKJV). Certainly, this verse is straightforward in speaking to the reality of the Trinity. Other Bible passages, however, add to the evidence supporting the doctrine.
For instance, the apostle Paul, the man who wrote a great deal of the New Testament, many times ended his letters or epistles to believers in many churches by speaking about God’s power and grace. In 2 Corinthians 13:14 he says, “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all. Amen.” Paul desires that the power of the 3 persons of the Trinity, God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, would be present in a church to help people who were very worldly. He declares the realty of the Trinity very plainly.
