Catholic Christianity Unit 1

Trinity 1.1 -

  • Christians worship only in one God (monotheism) because: it is a teching in the Bible, Jesus taught in the greatest commandment that there is only one God, and God;s unity is the teaching of the Magisterium, the creeds and the Catechism.
  • However, Christians believe that although God is one, he is also a Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 
  • The Nicene Creed explains that there is one being - God - made up of three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who are all equal and eternal.
  • Believing that God is the Father means that a Christians relationship with God sould be like a child's relationship with its father.
  • God creates human life like a father and so he has a continuing relationship of love and care with all of His children.
  • God will provide people with daily bread and protect them from evil because He is 'our Father'.
  • Believing that Jesus is the son of God show Catholics believe that Jesus is God who has become a hyman being.
  • Jesus is the son of God conceived by the action of the Holy(virgin birth)
  • Believing that Jesus is the Son of God is important for Catholics because only God's Son could forgive people's sins and institute the Mass.
  • Catholics believe that the Holy Spirit is the means by which God communicates with humans and is inspired by the Bible.
  • The Holy Spirit is the means by which God helps the Church…
