How do you know if a person is saved?
What do we believe? How do we behave—and can that be measured?
As Christians we generally agree on belief, but what behaviors are acceptable?
This is precisely the question Paul addresses to the church in Galatia.
The Holy Spirit leads, guides, teaches, and instructs. But that instruction had better have the Word of God behind it and not just your or my experience. Our experiences must be weighted and measured by Scripture and wisdom.
When we think about this doctrine of the Trinity – that there’s three persons in one Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – even for academics and Theologians, it’s a mind bending subject. It’s complicated.
Yet, Scripture has a lot to offer about the relationship not only within the Trinity, but as human beings relate to God.
Interestingly, apart from a Trinitarian Godhead, no one could be saved. In other words, if we don’t understand the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the role of those three persons; we don’t understand how a human being could be saved.
