Listen to “God Is Love – the Trinity!” By “Grandma“ Joelee, a free Children’s Bible Audios apologetics audio

Listen to God is Love – the Trinity!

A free apologetics Children’s Bible Audios-Stories for Kids by “Grandma” Joelee. It presents the Trinity not as a problem, but a solution, using the Bible, apologetics, and analogies.

The story behind the Bible story for kids: The purpose of this audio was to take a broad scope of reasons for and apologetics for the Trinity and present them in an interesting way for little kids. I, her son, I have used these in witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Muslims, and Bahia. But she puts these in language that little kids can understandand enjoy. Also, she presents this as a positive case so as not to raise any doubts for children.

She uses verses from the Bible in Genesis, the Gospel of Matthew, and the gospel of John; arguments from Augustine, CS Lewis, Josh McDowell, and Richard Swinburne; and imagery from Athanasius and the Nicene creed (and an orthodox version of the water analogy). She  connects the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, to the Gospel in presenting it for kids.

The Trinity is the solution to the question  as to how God can be the ultimate, not need anyone else, and also be love!

 

Friday Night Hymn – I Love to Tell the Story

On Friday family nights, we sing a few hymns. The Gospel (Good News) of our Lord Jesus Christ has also been called The Greatest Story Ever Told, His-story, Perfect Myth and Perfect Fact (in “Myth Became Fact” by C.S. Lewis), and in one of the hymns we sang,“I Love to Tell the Story”, it’s called The Old, Old Story.

I Love to Tell the Story
Words by A. Katherine Hankey, Music by William G. Fischer

1. I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love;
I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true,
It satisfies my longings as nothing else would do.

Chorus:
I love to tell the story,
’Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

2. I love to tell the story, more wonderful it seems
Than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams;
I love to tell the story, it did so much for me,
And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.

Chorus

3. I love to tell the story, ’tis pleasant to repeat,
What seems each time I tell it more wonderfully sweet;
I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
The message of salvation from God’s own holy Word.

Chorus

4. I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest;
And when in scenes of glory I sing the new, new song,
’Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.

Chorus
