The Trinity

Few doctrines are more generally accepted by the Christian world than that concerning the God-head known as the doctrine of the Trinity.  Roman Catholic, the Greek Church and almost all denominations of Protestant, however they may differ upon some point, agree on this and believe that the Father is God, the Son is God and the Holy Ghost is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God: they further believe that all three are co-equal and co-eternal.

But the Scriptures always teach the unity of God, not the trinity.  The following quotations clearly show this “Hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord.” Deut.6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa.45:5; 1 Cor.8:6.

Even as Jesus himself, after his resurrection, referred to the Father as my God in John 20:17.  The further fact that  “there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Tim.2:5.

The Son of God, born of a virgin mother, as recorded in Matthew and Luke:  “The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” Luke 1:35.

The Spirit of God is His power, irradiating or flowing from him, filling all space.  By it he performs all his works, it is everywhere.  Acts 17:27,28; Psa.139:6-12; Job 33:4: 34:14,15; Heb.2:4; Luke 1:35.

“This is life eternal,  that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”  John 17:3
