It has long been recognized in psychological circles that once a people give up their national religion for one that is truly universal (catholic) and that they abandon their former religion while away from their national homelands, the people usually become reckoned as converts to a new society altogether.

      Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the second member of the trinity. When Jesus was born, the “Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” (John ). Christians hold that Christ has existed eternally and is truly God. Colossians says: For in Him (Christ) the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily. After hearing the Gospel in the synagogue, some of these Gentiles became Christians. While they respected Judaism, Gentile converts had practices that were at odds with Jewish laws and customs.

      Most Christians say the apostles came to believe Jesus was God after seeing how Christ’s resurrection vindicated his claims to divinity. But Bart Ehrman’s book, How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee, offers another theory. Ehrman is popular New Testament textual critic who was once a Fundamentalist Christian and is now an agnostic.   The book Christians should read instead of 'The Benedict Option' Julián Carrón and Rod Dreher (CNS photos Gregory A. Shemitz/The Trinity Forum) .
