Have You Ever Wondered About the
Doctrine of the Trinity?

Millions of wonderful people of faith have – often without serious consideration – vested their confidence in the post-biblical concept that three different “Persons” compose the one God. Those Christians have often not considered that God’s prophets and people of old held that only one individual is God – the Father himself (Isaiah 64:4, 8). And, they often have not realized that our Lord Jesus declared that his Father is the only one who is truly God and that he (Jesus) is the Christ (John 17:3).

Because only one individual is God, the later innovation of Gentile Christians that two or three “Persons” are one God divides the honor and glory that is due the Father alone. The Scripture requires that we serve only “one” as God, and that we must love “him” with all of our hearts, souls and might (Deut. 6:4, 5; Mark 12:28-32).

Hence, the idea of more than one individual being God Almighty is not the teaching of Jesus and the original Christians. Under the later multiple “Persons” God approach, the glory that should be given to “one” as God has now been divided between three – our faith has been confused and thwarted.

There is a Better Way…

J. Dan Gill in his book “The One – In Defense of God” writes that there is a better – more scriptural way to understand these matters. Rather than the confusion of multiple “Persons” supposedly being one God, “as believers we should hold that the Father of Israel — the Father of Jesus Christ — is the only one in the universe who is truly God (Isa. 45:5; John 17:3); that God’s spirit is not another person of Deity but rather the Father himself at work in his presence and power (Matt. 10:20). We should believe in Jesus as God’s Christ: his Messiah — the one whom God has made Lord of all (Acts 2:36; Ps. 2:2 cf. Acts 4:26); that he is God’s only begotten human son; that he came into existence by a miracle in a young virgin by the name of Mary (Luke 1:35); that Jesus is our redeemer, our savior — but not our God (Acts 5:31; 13:23); that to truly follow Christ, we must serve his God ( John 20:17).

So, to us there is one God, the Father, who interacts with and touches his creation – not by another “Person” called “the Spirit” – but by his own personal spirit. It is the Father in presence and power. And, there is one whom God has made Lord over all – Jesus the Messiah! So,
There is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).

One God – The Big Picture

By |

Declaring that people often do not see the forest for the trees, J. Dan Gill presents the larger perspective regarding how many “Persons” are God. J. Dan tells us that the weight of the evidence as a whole clearly requires us to conclude that only one individual is God – not two or three as proposed by binitarianism and trinitarianism.

Christianity: Discarding Jesus’ Creed!

By |

Professor Anthony Buzzard of Atlanta Bible College presents a far reaching - well done - exposition on God and Jesus. Considering proposals of writers from C. S. Lewis to Bishop N. T. Wright, Sir Anthony tackles the issues related to the Doctrine of the Trinity and the One True God. In the process, Anthony asks and answers the question: “Is Christianity the only world religion which begins by discarding its own founder’s creed?”
