My Answer:

Thank you for your first post, Tahir Tat Adamu.

Let me answer your four questions for you:

(1) Go to church on Sunday

The Bible records in the New Testament that Jesus bodily arose from the dead on the “first day of the week” (Mark 16:9)

Mark 16:9

9  Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
King James Version

The “first day of the week” is our Sunday. From the times of the New Testament the early disciples met for specifically Christian worship on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7).

Acts 20:7

7  And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
King James Version

(2) Jesus sing and dance in the church

This may be a cultural feature practiced by some Christians but as far as I know is not the practice of the first Christians as recorded in the New Testament. However, we are commanded in the New Testament to “rejoice evermore” (1 Thessalonians 5:16), so in some cultures today singing and dancing may well express their way of rejoicing and praising the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 5:16

16  Rejoice evermore.
King James Version

See also Ephesians 5:19,

Eph 5:19  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

See also Paul’s description of a Christian worship service:

1 Corinthians 14:26

26  How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
King James Version

(3) God called Jesus His Son

Luke 3:22

22  And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
King James Version

Matthew 3:17

17  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
King James Version

Matthew 17:5

5  While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
King James Version

2 Peter 1:17

17  For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
King James Version


(4) Where Jesus said God is 3 in 1

Matthew 28:19

19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (King James Version)

Notice carefully that Matthew 28:19 contains the direct words of Jesus. Notice also that Jesus spoke of the “name” (singular, meaning one) not “names” of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. In this passage, therefore, the three Persons of the Godhead are spoken of as one God.


There is much more evidence contained in the Bible that shows that all three Persons are spoken of as deity, divine, or God, but only these three, and no others. Those who carefully study the Bible know that this is what the Bible teaches about God: He is One God eternally existing in three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
