Ok now you go to the other scriptures and study from there on that basic truth. In it, Sean Finnegan talks about five fundamental problems associated with the concept of three “Persons” being one God. This clearly shows that the critic fails to properly understand what the Trinity is. They were all glad that he was alive. The comments by pastor Hunter illustrate the great difficulty we have in explaining the correct role/position of Jesus. So is Moses. If you believe in the trinity, you don’t believe that Jesus is the father. Jesus is another being. Subscribe to the Restitutio email list and we'll send you this e-book for free! While there are verses that sound like Yeshua is God, what He is is a sheliach, which is a representative of God. No one ever did. How would you explain verses that suggest Jesus as God or at least God like? And as we do act like sheep (a need to follow) many started asking questions of the elders, i.e. You pastor are denying the Son of God. If you find a verse in the NT that is a direct citation of the OT, you will find the Brenton wording to match much more closely than those rendered from the Masoretic Text. chapters 2 and 3 the Testimony of Jesus through the angel (Prophet) he sent ends with “He that has an ear let him hear what the SPIRIT says to the churches”. St. John 20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. And we know that John chose the word “WORD” instead of “LAW” on purpose because he also uses the word “LAW” in the chapter. Most Dangerous thing you can believe. If God says this he is a blantant liar. Your professing the exact opposite of what the scriptures confess. JN 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. It’s a solution—a magnificent, marvelous, glorious, solution. Putting that aside, one has to understand why all of this came about. If Jesus is not the ONE and ONLY GOD, than there are two of them, and there’s only one. God-like is the way to go. 1st Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; If you teach that Jesus is God you have no mediator and are calling God a Liar! His Son…..NOT GOD. Luke 12:10? Its ridiculous. The doctrine of the Trinity is central to mainstream Christianity. Were talking about eternal life and death people! In the Bible the term “God” with very few exceptions is used primarily as a name for the Father. But the biblical authors thought he was one person not three, who should we listen to? The Father didn’t die and simply cannot die. The Holy Ghost is neither Father nor Son, but both. This scripture says you must believe that Jesus is GODS Son not himself. If one is to believe that Jesus was immortal at the time of His crucifixion, then He sacrificed nothing and his death and resurrection were merely an act or a facade. Thanks for all the comments and I’m glad you found this site! Thus, the Divine Unity consists of the Father, with His Son and His Spirit distinct from Himself and yet perfectly united together in Him. 22:16 in answer to a dear lady’s request to show me Jesus is GOD. The Father is not the Son 5. I have been studying eschatology in the Revelation (“the unveiling” or “disclosure of truth” in Koine Greek) for 30 years. If this scripture doesn’t mean exactly what it says the whole Gospel is a lie. by Sean Finnegan (May 2011)Presented at Restoration Fellowship’s 20th Theological Conference. Answer: Illustrating the Trinity is a noble goal, but it is ultimately an exercise in futility. We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. US! the Trinity is nowhere taught in Scripture, it is only superimposed upon Scripture from later Christian thinkers who were highly influenced by Greek philosophy. My point is that to understand the new testament we need to view it through the lens of the old testament. Omniscience is a necessary property of deity, so if Jesus was God he would have been omniscient, but according to him, he wasn’t! This declaration has been considered as a clear proof of the divinity of Christ, for the following reasons: This is the single most important thing for people to believe. Oooooooh pastor your are playing the most dangerous game there is. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Acts 9:19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. God and his son. What’s your point? thank the Lord , I thank the MOST HIGH. I’ve seen so much proof but it wasn’t in Scripture I’ve seen this 666 Holy Trinity symbol on everything from The Craft to the book Charmed to all the tattoos of the Holy Trinity in intertwined 666 the Pope’s hat 666 Babylon of the Sun worshipers on his hat but I always said if there is a Holy Trinity then who is the mediator ?? Is that correct? he cannot have two minds, one that knew something and another that did not know something, unless we now want to make the absurd claim that mind and person are not correlated, so if Jesus was God, he did know everything and lied about not knowing the day of his return…but if Jesus lied then he cannot be God, for God cannot lie (Titus 1.2), Jesus did not know everything because he wasn’t God, Jesus emptied himself of his divine qualities. 2. That Son was due his inheritance even before his father died. Yeshua allowed Himself to be called the Messiah and that is what the word Christ really means. And why know ONE IS ASKING THESE QUESTIONS!!! If you subtract from what is written there you will lose your eternal life. You identify the father and Jesus as two different beings that, along with the Holy Spirit, are in accordance and act as one. Have you watched the video above? No one in the whole bible says “Jesus is the Almighty God” Where is someone confessing this. we are who our father is because we’re born of him we are who our father is CUZ WE COME FROM HIS SEED and the Holy Spirit is telling me that’s what yahshua mint God bless thanks if you read.We ARE GRAFTED IN (( I HAVE OTHER SHEEP FROM ANOTHER FOLD!!!)) Thus, the Son is the “Son of God,” and the Spirit is the “Spirit of God.” The Son is born from the Father, and the Spirit proceeds from the Father—both in the same timeless and eternal action of the Father’s own being. You are blatantly ignoring what the Bible plainly states and prefer to support an evil doctrine of men. John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he(God) hath declared him. What everyone here forgets, or doesn’t seem to understand, or know is that God said he was the SAVIOR to “all ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 45:22) God tells Moses, “I Am.” (Exodus 3:14) Jesus declares that “Before Abraham was, I Am.” (John 8:58) The Bible tells us there’s only one Father. This is Satan’s trick to take away your salvation. Genesis records that Elohim SPOKE everything into existence. St. John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. JN 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me. In Revelation chapter 5, John said he saw the LAMB sitting on the THRONE of God. Thomas is unclean and still sinful flesh. Jesus is our brother (Heb 2:11). Major Problems with the Trinity? It is the basis of Christian community. those in authority, and of the learned about such things. The Trinity, which is identified as a “mystery”, has two ultimate conclusions: Yeshua, Yahweh and the Spirit are all the same being or we have three gods. I understand. In this view, the Son and the Spirit are both one with God and in no way separated from Him. John 1:1  Geee didnt Paul have it right? Also Jesus is the Messiah and by what Messiah means the whole gospel is a lie. If Jews hear a new definition of God aren’t at least some of them going to put up resistance? John 1: 1-5 is called a “sod” or mystery level scripture. My Lord and my God – In this passage the name God is expressly given to Christ, in his own presence and by one of his own apostles. God gave his son everything. The term and definition are not in Scripture. Sentence 5: I don’t know what a Unitarian is 22:8,9, you will discover this angel is a Prophet. A basic definition of the Trinity. The scriptures say that Jesus is the Son of the Almighty not the Almighty himself. finally the truth explained to the point where they cannot debated and I’m tired of debating whoever said debating is healthy never watched a presidential debate while at the end of the debate the two candidates are ready to kill and choke each other or never watch C-SPAN debating is not healthy it divides in causes hate, I just have one question though can somebody explain Genesis quote and with God was the word and the word became flesh I know that’s Jesus real name the word blue letter logos that’s the only thing the trinitarians keep bringing up and so their main argument that God and Jesus are one and they’re both gods because and with them was the word and the Word was God. If God is a “he” not a “they” then he is a singular person not multiple persons right? It doesn’t say God gave himself it says he gave his only begotten son. And if you think Thomas stuck his arm inside of the Almighty God that’s about the most loony thing I have ever heard of. (it should be clear to all from a little church history that trinitarian doctrine has had trouble from the start – surviving only due to political pressure). St. John 20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her. This dual creator theme starts to leak into all sorts of issues, with these used to be Monotheistic Christians wanting answers to this new dilemma. lol. Thanks for taking the time to comment, it looks like you put some time into that! God was with him it does not say he was God. There is nothing saying God is his own mediator. You only have forgiveness of sins if you confess that Jesus is the Son of God. Your email address will not be published. Learn about six of the major cultural currents tugging at all of us, including how to spot them, and how Christianity offers a more satisfying way of thinking and living. Solutions for Problems of the Week can be submitted to Professor Brian Miceli at bmiceli@trinity.edu. There is no evidence that this was a mere expression, as some have supposed, of surprise or astonishment. Penalty for this belief? What people don’t understand is that God can be everywhere at the same time and still be God in heaven. 1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. but I thought there was only one person subsisting in two natures!? The big question we need to ask ourselves is: WHAT IS THE UTILITY OF TRINITARIAN DOCTRINE FOR SATAN’S PURPOSES? He does not pray to Himself and apparently the Father’s will is different from the Son’s will. Well, he said the LORD GOD of the HOLY PROPHETS sent him. Among those who uphold the doctrine of the Trinity, few know much about it beyond the “God in three per­sons” formula. There is one God and he is not 3 in 1 oil. If Jesus is God the whole Gospel is false. Thrust your arm inside someone and there right there looking at you. In Rev. in his human nature he was limited in knowledge but in his divine nature he really did know when he would return. The Bible states that the three forms of God are: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and all three are equivalent in power. That is never said in scripture. The Father is God 2. IS this blaspheming against God? It is plainly stated. Phil 2:6 it tells us that being equal to God was not something he held on to so in the next 2 verses 7 “but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men;” 8 “and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross.” We see He emptied himself of all that He had and becomes a servant. I hope you took the time to watch our video as many of those questions are answered there. Pure Looney Tunes!! The power, authority, glory…. Historically, most writers have held that even if the existence of God could be known by natural reason, his Trinitarian character could only be discovered through revelation. the kenosis theory has been rejected by orthodox Trinitarians and even if it wasn’t, it clearly shows how the Trinitarian must multiple explanations to cling to the theory when the Bible contradicts it (kind of like duct tape holding on the bumper of a car). Now if you understand the proper order of the God Head you know that the Holy Spirit is God not a separate entity, and it is the agent by which God works his will. ), 553: Constantinople II (how can we interpret the dual natures w/o dividing Christ into two), 681: Constantinople III (did Christ have one or two wills? And not everybody at our assembly sees it this way. ), 451: Chalcedon (did Christ have one or two natures? (Malachi 2:10) Then it tells us that Jesus is the Everlasting Father. Christ is His own Father and His own Son. Is the Trinity a problem? And hopefully you can help me out. Different ideas about Christ's divinity lead to conflict. I mean have you ever considered these scriptures? That’s why He says “the glory that I had”. There’s your hierarchy, brother! I don’t pretend to understand it all or even close to it. The selections I have chosen are the ones I regard as embodying Kel’s main arguments; I have left out what I regard as repetitious or off the point. And God does not anoint himself. When interpreting scripture, you never start with a sod. Pastor its not me saying this the scriptures do. I happen to agree with the scholars that claim if you add to, YOU HAVE SUBTRACTED FROM, and vice versa. Compare Acts 14:13-15; Revelation 22:8-9. 1:1, with Rev. AMEN ! 22:18,19 it is clear that if you add to what is written there, the plagues written in the book will be added to you. The Logical Problem of the Trinity Abstract by Beau Branson The doctrine of the Trinity is central to mainstream Christianity. Phil 2:6 is answered at verse 9 22:6, the angel sent in Rev. By who??? http://www.thewordandtheway.net/son-of-god/, http://oca.org/orthodoxy/the-orthodox-faith/doctrine/the-holy-trinity/the-holy-trinity-revealed, http://www.hebrewrootsgroup.com/Archived%20Messages%20from%20Northland%20Hebrew%20Roots%20Group/yeshua-is-not-yhvh/, http://www.hebrewrootsgroup.com/Archived%20Messages%20from%20Northland%20Hebrew%20Roots%20Group/restoring-yeshua-as-mediator/, https://www.thewordandtheway.net/son-of-god/. NOWHERE!! A messenger or a Messiah. Can somebody please spoon feed me LOL. I think if you thought about it what would you do if you stuck your arm inside someone, what would you think? “And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.” He existed and had glory before creation…? Jesus said he didn’t know the day or hour of his return though his Father did know it. Including, and not limited to the Watchtower Organization, all Adventist groups, and everything else. Now, this is where I will offer up my “opinion” based on my own studies. The scripture says so!! In my opinion, “The Great Apostasy” (to a greater and lesser degree) that the Apostle Paul spoke of takes in all of (organized) Christendom, bar none. God did not anoint Himself but He sent His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him (as the Son) will have everlasting life. The same word that was called God a few verses before? The MAN Christ Jesus. In every case you will see that Paul regards Yeshua as the Son of God, being sent by God, and being anointed by God. Do you really want to let Pride get in the way of the truth? He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 3. First of all, the doctrine of the Trinity states that Jesus is the Word become flesh–not the Trinity become flesh. The Trinity The Problem of the Trinity. If one is to believe that Jesus was immortal at the time of His crucifixion, then He sacrificed nothing and his death and resurrection were merely an act or a facade. Is your language objection with verse 1 or all 5 of the first verses? May God bless you seven fold for preaching and believing this truth. I can tell you one thing its not going to be good! 1:1, but you would assume that would be God, the Father, correct? One cannot sit at the right hand of oneself. Jesus challenged the belief of how God is one (John 5.16-18; 8.57-58; 10.29-31), he plainly did not agree with Jewish monotheism. By reading it directly we really don’t know what it means. Ok now lets go to the new testament. 1st John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. Pastor repent!!! how?). The Problem of the Trinity The Mystery The concept of the Trinity was first formulated by St. Augustine in the Nicene Creed in seven statements: 1.
