“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Adoration of the Trinity (1511)
by Albrecht Durer
Just a word of explanation and apology. HumanLifeMatters blog uses Google Adsense as a way of generating a bit of income. I was appalled this morning to see Google placed an advertisement for somebody, or group, that denies the Trinity. As soon as I saw it I removed it. I am so sorry. In defense of Google Adsense, I think appropriate advertisements are placed by keywords -- and in this case the word "Jesus" must have been detected and mistakenly placed on this blog. Without tools for theological vetting Adsense would not have detected the problem. Still, it appeared on the HumanLifeMatters (HLM) blog. 

I want to clarify to all readers of the HLM blog that whoever sponsored such an advertisement was proclaiming a lie which I completely and utterly reject.  Just prior to His ascension, Jesus confirmed the Trinity

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations. baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit."*

Matthew 28.19 (cf. John 14.26, 15.26; 2Corinthians 13.14; 1Peter 1.2) The Trinity has been a doctrine from the beginning of Christianity.
