See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, (Colossians 2:8-9, ESV)

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, (Hebrews 1:3, ESV)

 

To see Jesus is to see God himself. He is the exact imprint of the heavenly Father. Jesus is the source of all that is in existence. He is the un-created Creator. All genuine revelation and knowledge has its origins in God. Jesus has no equals among those who have founded the other world religions.

Those philosophers who speak the wisdom of the age have all received their intellect from the very God that they mock. They only have enough wisdom to observe the natural order of things. They are blind to the unseen realm where the un-created trinitarian  God dwells in perfect light, wisdom, might, and power. God is manifest in three distinct persons. Not three ‘god’s’ but three individuals living in perfect harmony making up the one true God.

As we experience God as our source of truth and life we see the vanity of following the rebellious ideologies of fallen men with minds that are not informed by Scripture. Buddhism and New Age philosophies that are growing in the west offer a false self-centered enlightenment apart from the Creator.

Self-centerness is pervasive in the western world both in Christian and non-Christian movements. The trinitarian God is anything but self-absorbed. Each member of the Trinity points to the other members and desires to share their glory and love they have together with humanity.
