Understanding the Trinity is actually very easy and I will explain it to you today. I will also explain the false teachings out there on what the Trinity is not, so you can understand what you are possibly believing in and change to the correct understanding of what the Trinity is.
The Trinity is ONE God existing in three separate Persons. Now realise this just because we say three Persons does not mean there are three separate Gods, there is only ONE God. Now the world Trinity is not found in the bible, it is only a word used to describe the “trinue” Godhead, that being three co-external, co-existent Persons who make up ONE God. So it’s not the word Trinity that is of importance, it’s what it represents that’s important.
The following is what God’s Word says about the Trinity:
1) There is ONE God (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5).
2) The Trinity consists of THREE SEPARATE PERSONS. See here: (Genesis 1:1,26;3:22;11:7; Isaiah 6:8,48:16,61:1; Matthew 3:16-17,28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

With the opening weekend success of his latest film, “Jumping The Broom,” Bishop T.D Jakes, along with Joe Roth, will produce the adaptation of the novel “Heaven Is For Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip To Heaven And Back,” which Sony Pictures acquired the screen rights to. The film is based on an adaptation of the novel with the same namesake by Todd Burpo, also a producer.

I said it before here: Louie Giglio – A Baptist with an Emerging Agenda and here: Louie Giglio – Sometimes Silence is Loud and here: Louie Giglio – Chasing The Experience (Part 1) that Louie Giglio was silently practicing Contemplative Spirituality but no one wanted to believe me. Well here at Passion 2012 Louie Giglio teams ups with mystic Beth Moore and newly emerged Emergent John Piper to lead a whole bunch of youngsters down the path to hell.
Put before we focus on the actual Passion 2012 conference I want to just focus on Louie Giglio’s choice of names: 268Generation and Passion.
The website is 268generation.com and many other websites that all seem to point back to 268generation.com and is based on the following scripture: Isaiah 26. Now who bases an entire ministry on 1/2 of a prophetic scripture in the bible that from a layperson’s view seems like a scripture that can easily be distorted to support a “works” driven ministry?
So we decided to search the Strong’s concordance for 268 and the translation for the Hebrew word “sinner” came up as the 268th word. When you click on the Strong’s root word you see the word “sin”. In the very definition of this word they use this term: “(2) For the RV of Rom 7:5, “sinful passions,” see PASSION, No. 1.

If Brian has any clue as to what real Christianity meant he would not even have written his article below (see heading below). But because we know he battles with concepts such as SIN and REPENTANCE OF SIN we will let Brian think again, that his ‘new kind of Christianity’ is just the schnizzle. We on the other hand pray the he grasps REPENTANCE OF SIN.
Uganda is proposing “The Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009″ is making its way through Uganda’s parliament and will probably become law before Christmas.
Quotes taken from The Urban Coaster
“This year, though, gays can look forward to life imprisonment or the death penalty if they are arrested for certain offences under the proposed law.”
“In 2007 the Church of Uganda consecrated Bishop John Guernsey in Virginia. The Reverend John Kalimi preaches his homophobic message at Saint Vincent’s Cathedral in Dallas-Fort Worth. Pentecostal, anti-gay ministers of mega-churches here, like TD Jakes of The Potter’s House and the Miracle Crusader Benny Hinn went to Uganda on fundraising and soul-getting missions and came back richer.
Protectors of American families like Scott Lively and Rick Warren, who think gay people need healing, threw their support behind Ugandan preacher Martin Ssempa until he started talking to the media about killing homosexuals. Rick Warren of Saddleback Valley Community Church has repudiated Martin Ssempa. Scott Lively of Defend the Family has gone quiet on the subject. “
From Brian McLarens’s website:
I wonder if some of the “discernment websites” that enjoy featuring and critiquing the work of many of my friends and me would be willing to host some discussion on this bill currently proposed in the Ugandan parliament.
I’d be interested in reading whether participants in those blogs agree with the Ugandan bill, and if not, why not. (Details after the jump)…

A Listener’s Guide to the Pulpit
An Article from Issues Etc. Journal
by Todd Wilken
How hard could it be? You go to church. The preacher preaches. You sit and listen. Easy, right?
But how do you tell the difference between a good sermon and a bad sermon? What makes good preaching good, and bad preaching bad?
For several years issues, Etc. has been doing on-air sermon reviews. We’ve reviewed the sermons of Joel Osteen, D. James Kennedy, T. D. Jakes, Robert Schuller, Joyce Meyer, as well as many less well-known preachers. We’ve reviewed the sermons of Catholics, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Eastern Orthodox, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, and others. Most of these preachers were speaking to packed auditoriums and to worldwide television audiences. Most of the preachers were dynamic, engaging, interesting, and even entertaining. Most of their sermons were terrible.
Now, who am I to make such a judgment? Nobody. But I don’t make this judgment based on my own subjective tastes or my own personal standard. I make this judgment based on the objective difference between good preaching and bad preaching.
