The 3 in 1 God-head

Our Pastor, Elder Jonathan Cook, then presented a teaching sermon using 1st John 5:7 as his primary text, with support from Exodus 20:3-5, Acts 17:22, John 1:1-3, 5:25-27, 12:27-32 and 14:16-19, Revelation 1:4-5 and 19:13-16, 1st Timothy 3:16, Matthew 3:16-17 and 17:5, Psalm 33:6, and numerous other scriptures. In his presentation Elder Cook taught that not only is God the Father fully God, but both Jesus and the Holy Spirit are fully God as well, and yet these three are one. God alone is Creator, for life cannot come from non-life such as idols of stone or silver or gold. He also emphasized that this text is the basis for the first of our Articles of Faith and is absolutely foundational for the balance of all our remaining Articles of Faith. Pastor Cook pointed out that there are many false gods evident in the history of mankind – – all of which have come from the imagination and hands of man in an effort to bring God down to man’s level. Even today, many churches error in trying to bring God down to our own level when, in fact, He should be highly praised, exalted, and revered above all and as He is King of kings and Lord of lords. There is but one true God and He is a jealous God that is not tolerant of any other gods created by man. Elder Cook also warned that anything (whether it be our jobs, our homes or even our families) that we prioritize ahead of God becomes an idol in our own lives
