As Charles Colson, a renowned Evangelical Christian writer and leader, wrote in his book “The Faith”, “When the God of the Bible is rejected, people choose a new god” (Colson, 68). The epitome of this statement can be found in 21st century American culture. Contrary to what some may proclaim, every American, and frankly everyone else in the world, has tabbed someone or something to fill the role of a “god” in his or her life. According to the Bible in Romans 1:20, God has revealed Himself and His qualities to the world through His creation, “For since the creation of the world God 's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse” (Romans 1:20 New International Version). All to often people dismiss the notion of Christianity because of preconceived views of God and the Trinity, often after attempting to apply worldly limitations and constraints to the identity of God, which is revealed through creation. The idea of the Trinity and the incarnation are often misconstrued and misunderstood because of their complexity, but this is not problem that must persist when accompanied by a clear explanation of these complex issues. The birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus altered and transformed the world by revealing the nature of God to humanity, providing a pattern for a Christian life, and by atoning for the sins of the world.
