Flawed Doctrine Of The Trinity
The Law was made until the Son of Man came. The Son of Man is the
Seed that God made the promise to [prior to the Law]. Under
normal conditions, an intermediary doesn't mediate for one client
only. But, God which is both the Promiser and Promisee is only
one. (See Galatians 3:19-20).
Deuteronomy 6:4 (NLT) Hear, O Israel!
The LORD is our God, the LORD alone.
Some believe that since the Son of God (our Lord Jesus) refers to the
Father and Holy Spirit grammatically in the third person, that would be
confirmation that they are separate persons. Our Lord Jesus also
refers to Himself grammatically in the third person, but obviously He
is Himself. Speaking of oneself grammatically in the third
person, does not exclude a person from being himself. Some assume
that since Jesus speaks about another, and talks to another, then the
one He is talking about or talking to must be another person.
Additionally, some assume that since our Lord Jesus refers to Himself
genealogically and hierarchically lower than the Father, that
constitutes that He is separate and inferior. Erroneously, our
Lord Jesus is referred to as the “second person in the trinity” by many
today. Some erroneously refer to the Holy Spirit as the “third
person in the trinity” (God is not a triumvirate).
God is the one Holy
John 4:23-24 But the hour
cometh, and now is, when the true
worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for
the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit:
and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Some say God could not be on earth and in heaven at the same
time. Yet, with two opinions, those same persons speak of God’s
omnipresence. If He is omnipresent and almighty, of course He can
be in heaven and on earth at the same time.
Ephesians 4:4-6 (Weymouth New
Testament) There is
but one body and but one Spirit,
as also when you were called you had one and the same hope held out to
is but one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God
and Father of all, who rules over all, acts through all, and dwells in
It is recorded in Luke 2:25-26 that the Spirit of God had revealed to
Simeon that He would not die before seeing the Lord’s Christ.
There being just one Lord, if [Jesus] Christ is Lord and is purportedly
also a separate person, how can He be the Lord’s Christ? (How can
the Lord be the Lord’s Lord when there is just one Lord, and yet they
not be the same Lord?) The
Lord [known by man in the old] is the Lord [in the new].
2:25-26 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was
Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the
consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it
was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death,
before he had seen the Lord's
It is recorded in Mathew 3:16-17 the Spirit of God descending on God
(our Lord Jesus Christ). God, our Father in heaven (who is a
Spirit) spoke from heaven declaring that He was pleased. Was that
the Lord that spoke concerning our Lord? How many Lords are
Matthew 3:16-17 And Jesus,
when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo,
the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God
descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice
from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
20:28-29 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my
God. Jesus saith
unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast
believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have
Additionally, God (our Lord Jesus Christ) was baptized by John the
Baptist which was filled with God (the Holy Spirit) [filled even before
(John) was born]. Therefore our Lord was baptized by a person
that was filled with [the Spirit of] our Lord (See Luke 1:13-15).
However, there is just one Lord.
God is a Spirit (The Holy Spirit is
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they
that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The Son is God (Therefore, the Son is a Spirit)
Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:
God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels,
preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into
The Son is the Father.
14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet
hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the
Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
If the Sabbath is the Lord’s day, and His Day belongs to the Lord [who
is revealed in the Old Testament], and our Lord Jesus also declares the
Sabbath as His day [who is revealed in the New Testament], why does not
the Word of God refer to the Lord’s possession of His day
pluralistically (e.g., The Lords' Day)? For there is just one
Lord. Are there separate spirits, the Spirit of God and the
Spirit of Christ? No, there is Just one Lord, one God, one Spirit.
8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so
be that the Spirit of God
dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ,
he is none of his.
We must be baptized in His name, and receive His Spirit, which is
confirmed by speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gives the
utterance. Jesus' requirement of obedience to Acts 2:38 was
reiterated by apostle Peter (See Acts 2:14), who was senior to the
apostles (Note Matthew
16:18 and also the hierarchical order outlined in Matthew
& Luke 6:13-16).
2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized
every one of you in the name of
Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the
gift of the Holy Ghost.
Recorded in Acts 8:14-17 below is evidence that baptism was peformed in
Jesus' name (Jesus is the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost), and also
evidence that professing believers did not receive automatically
receive the Holy Ghost during baptism and "profession of faith".
Acts 4:12 Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name
under heaven given among men, whereby we must
8:14-17 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that
Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and
John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for
them, that they might
receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon
none of them:
were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid
their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
