2Co 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Audio Player:Is God a Trinity Discussion Part 1
This study discusses various parts of the article: http://bible.org/article/trinity-triunity-god
Isa 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isa 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
I have never seen someone quote the following verse in relation to the trinity doctrine.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead (divinity); so that they are without excuse.
“Ryrie writes: Trinity is, of course, not a biblical word. Neither are triunity, trine, trinal, subsistence, nor essence. Yet we employ them, and often helpfully, in trying to express this doctrine which is so fraught with difficulties. Furthermore, this is a doctrine which in the New Testament is not explicit even though it is often said that it is implicit in the Old and explicit in the New. But explicit means “characterized by full, clear expression,” an adjective hard to apply to this doctrine. Nevertheless, the doctrine grows out of the Scriptures, so it is a biblical teaching.”
This is an admonition that the doctrine of the Trinity is not based on a pattern of sound words.
2Ti 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
In our next study we will cover the truth of God the Father, Jesus Christ his son, and God’s spirit.
This is the article that we will review next time: http://iswasandwillbe.com/trinity.php
The truth is that God the Father is the only thing that has always existed, and everything proceeds forth from him. God creates Christ and then used Christ to create everything else that exists. The holy spirit is just the Spirit of God, not another person or entity.
1Co 8:6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.
Rev 3:14 “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation.
Eph 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption
