The Problem Making Yahshua Messiah the God of Israel

The following is a "working" outline for a book that will focus mainly on the Trinity Doctrine. I will be updating the outline sections periodically - so please be sure to check back from time to time for those updates. I also encourage your comments and ideas on the work.

I am focusing on logic and reason rather than linguistics (i.e. language, grammar and syntax) and translation/transliteration errors to highlight and expose the problems associated with the trinity doctrine; which proclaims that Yahshua Messiah is both fully human and fully divine. 

In this study, I will use the personal names Yahweh and Yahshua, which are the personal Hebrew names of the God of Israel and the Messiah respectively.

FACT 1: Trinitarians reject the one true God of Israel that is clearly identified multiple times in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament). The one true God of Israel identified Himself to Moses in Exodus 3:15 by His personal name YAHWEH. In Isaiah 44:6 Yahweh said unequivocally "besides ME there are NO other gods." But rather than using the personal name Yahweh, Trinitarians use generic titles like "Lord" and "God'" to help them cloak their multi-person god. Trinitarians use generic titles because using the personal name Yahweh would limit the identity of the one true God of Israel as a single personal being. Using the personal name Yahweh instead of generic titles exposes the multi-person god of the Trinity doctrine as a lie.

FACT 2: Trinitarians abandoned the biblical monotheistic faith of Yahweh's chosen people and His son Yahshua Messiah and embraced a "three-person" god-squad which they identify as a "substance" rather than the one true God Yahweh. The god-squad of their trinity doctrine is identified as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Trinitarians believe the first person of this god-squad is "God the Father," who they mistakenly refer to by name as Lord or God. As stated in Fact 1, trinitarians use the titles Lord and God to keep their lie from being exposed because the Hebrew Scriptures clearly state dozens of times that Yahweh alone is the one true God. The second person is "God the Son," who they refer to by name as Jesus, and by titles such as Christ or Lord. And the third person is "God the Holy Spirit," who they can only refer to as the Holy Spirit because trinitarians don't have a name for this "person" - yet. 

FACT 3: The trinity is not now nor has it ever been a part of the Hebrew monotheistic faith or the gospel message and teachings of Yahshua Messiah. The trinity cannot be remotely considered as revealed truth in either the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) or the New Testament. In fact, the trinity doctrine is nothing more than a combination of Greek philosophy, Gnosticism and pagan polytheism spawned by corrupted men long after the apostolic age. 

FACT 4: With respect to the one true God of Israel who revealed Himself to the Hebrews in their written and oral scriptures;  His personal name "YHWH" (Yahweh) occurs 6,828 times in the Old Testament and "Eloheim" (God) occurs approximately 2,340 times. In the new Testament the title “God” is mentioned 1,354 times and “Father” 352 times. These mentions all total 10,865 in both the NT and OT. 

FACT 5: Of those 10,865 total times Yahweh, Elohim, God and Father are mentioned, NEVER are they identified specifically as three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and there is no contextual evidence whatsoever of some sort of a three person “godhead” as defined by trinitarians today. Simply put, trinitarians read their false three-person god into the text of the bible in an effort to support and defend the trinity doctrine and suppress the truth. 

The Trinity was developed and implemented as a foundational doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church in the late fourth century. The majority of protestant Christian churches that initially broke away from the Catholic Church accepted that same Trinity as a foundational doctrine as well. And the majority of non-Catholic denominations and independent Christian churches organized since that era also accepted the Trinity as a foundational doctrine. So what are the ramifications of the above 5 facts for all those "Christian" churches and their members that continue to believe and adhere to a proven false doctrine of worship to a plurality of gods? 

What Yahweh says about any person or group that worships "other" gods than Him should be cause enough for any person who believes in the Trinity doctrine to re-examine what they have been taught. 

Yahweh warned His people not to "imitate the abominations" of other nations; saying that anyone who does so will be "an abomination" to Him. How much more sever judgement will Yahweh place on those who imitate the Trinity doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church?

If you are a Christian that grew up in an organized "church" it is likely you were taught from an early age the very basics about the trinity doctrine; that "God" was actually a combination of three "persons" who are identified as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And you were probably told that these three "persons" together made up the "one" God of the bible. It's almost a given that you didn't understand how that all worked, but because it was a part of your family's religion and the trinity didn't really get talked about much in church, you just accepted it and didn't give it much thought.  

However, it's almost certain that because those trinity basics were all you were ever taught in church or at home you never really understood exactly what the trinity was; and it's almost a guarantee that you were never taught any history behind how the trinity became such a prominent "Christian" doctrine. And there's a really good reason for thatbecause every theologian and biblical historian who has studied the trinity openly admits somewhere in their scholarly works that the trinity is incomprehensible, illogical and never actually mentioned or alluded to in the bible. Sadly, for the cause of truth, that doesn't stop Christian theologians, Christian college and seminary professors, pastors, priests, missionaries, Sunday school teachers and parents from teaching and defending the trinity doctrine as "biblical' fact. 

If you currently believe in the trinity simply because that's what you were taught, I challenge you to set aside all your preconceived ideas about the trinity doctrine and use your God-given ability for logic and reason to take a closer look at this doctrine. Be confident in your study and have faith that the Holy Spirit will "guide you into all truth." And always remember that Yahweh is not a "God of confusion" and we are promised that we can know and understand even the "deep things of God" as we have been given the "spirit which is from God" and also the very "mind of Christ."
But to us, God revealed them (God's wisdom and mystery) through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of GodFor who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God’s Spirit. But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God. (1 Corinthians 2:10-12)
Be very careful to guard the truth revealed to you by the Holy Spirit in this matter. There will be those within the "church" who will most certainly judge you, according to that truth, as being led-astray. But stand firm in your faith and discernment of the truth revealed to you by the very Spirit of your Father in Heaven who lives in you.
But he who is spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one“For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him?” But we have Christ’s mind. (1 Corinthians 2:15-16) 
Many blessings to you on your journey and search for all truth.* 

*WARNING: Unfortunately, because almost every bible commentary, research study, reference book and website resource are authored or curated by trinitarian doctrine apologists,the materials and data from those sources will be slanted toward the trinity as being a legitimate biblical doctrine. Fortunately, there are now many "unbiased" resources available for those who are searching for the truth in all things

I encourage you to read the following two books and also to use the reference links below and in the side column that use sound arguments of scripture and history to refute trinitarian arguments. There is also a link to my other website that has some excellent posts and lots more informative links about this and other false teachings of traditions and doctrines of most Christian churches.

"The One True God"

"The Only Perfect Man"

The following is a quote by Charles Morgridge from a discourse he gave in 1837: 

"Promises of salvation are expressly made to all who embrace the gospel as it is defined by Christ and the Apostles. But no promise is made to the Trinitarian as such. There is no scripture which asserts that whosoever believes in the Trinity, or in the two natures, or in the Son's equality with the Father ... shall be saved. Nor does any scripture assert that whosoever believeth not these doctrines shall be damned. But if no promise is made to him who embraces the gospel as it is defined by Trinitarians, and no threatening against him who does not embrace it as thus defined, is not this sufficient evidence that their definitions are not correct?

All who believe on Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, have assurance from Christ himself, of everlasting life. All who do not believe Jesus to be the Son of God, are assured, by the same authority, that they shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on them. 

What, then, does the true believer gain by admitting the doctrine of the Trinity? If it does not secure to him a single promise, nor shield him from a single threatening, then what use can it possibly be to him? It cannot make one hair either white or black." 

So is there a benefit to believing in the trinity? None whatsoever! 

Is there condemnation for believing in the trinity? Scripture strongly indicates there is.
 
Knowing this, the most important question you must honestly ask yourself is this:

WHY DO I BELIEVE THE TRINITY DOCTRINE?


Here are some other great resource websites:




Let's begin...

PART I  

"Early Christianity was theologically diverse, although as time went on a “catholic” movement, a bishop-led, developing organization which, at least from the late second century, claimed to be the true successors of Jesus' apostles, became increasingly dominant, out-competing many gnostic and quasi-Jewish groups. Still, confining our attention to what scholars now call this “catholic” or “proto-orthodox” Christianity, it contained divergent views about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. No theologian in the first three Christian centuries was a trinitarian in the sense of a believing that the one God is tripersonal, containing equally divine “persons”, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The terms we translate as “Trinity” (Latin: trinitas, Greek: trias) seem to have come into use only in the last two decades of the second century; but such usage doesn't reflect trinitarian belief. These late second and third century authors use such terms not to refer to the one God, but rather to refer to the plurality of the one God, together with his Son (on Word) and his Spirit. They profess a “trinity”, triad or threesome, but not a triune or tripersonal God. Nor did they consider these to be equally divine. A common strategy for defending monotheism in this period is to emphasize the unique divinity of the Father." (From "Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy") Thus Origen (ca. 186-255),

The God and Father, who holds the universe together, is superior to every being that exists, for he imparts to each one from his own existence that which each one is; the Son, being less than the Father, is superior to rational creatures alone (for he is second to the Father); the Holy Spirit is still less, and dwells within the saints alone. So that in this way the power of the Father is greater than that of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and that of the Son is more than that of the Holy Spirit... (Origen, First, 33-4 [I.3])
"Three hundred years after the Messiah's death, the early (Catholic) church fathers made history by inventing/making a "god-man" consisting of Yahshua, Holy Spirit and Yahweh all rolled into one and labeling them the Trinity. This action was taken and protected for about 1,000 years because the literal written word was guarded by the "church' and kept from lay people. Even after the bible was available in print to lay people the doctrine of the Messiah literally being God has been blindly accepted by most in the Christian world. The Catholic Church "fathers" never cared that the Messiah never claimed to be God; they simply declared that he (and the Holy Spirit) were God by a majority vote. After the vote the Bishops in the majority acted quickly to excommunicate and/or banish all those Bishops and influential leaders who didn't agree with their view. The lay people of the Catholic Church were commanded to believe it - or suffer the same consequences as those leaders who didn't agree. So by the edict of Catholic Church fathers (and all those Christian leaders that have followed to this day) Yahweh, the Messiah (Yahshua) and the Holy Spirit became the three equal "persons" who make up the "essence" of God. Christians, and especially all non-catholic Christians, can believe whatever they wish, but blindly falling in line with the declarations of the Catholic Church proves they are simply ignorant of the truth and have no intention of thinking or researching for themselves."

1. God is NOT a man and can NEVER be a man! 
GOD IS NOT A MAN, that he should lie, nor the son of man, that he should repent. (Numbers 23:19)
"...for I am God, and NOT man; the Holy One among you..." (Hosea 11:9)
Just as it is impossible for Yahweh to die, lie, be unjust or be anything else but God, it is also impossible for Yahweh to transform Himself, in part or whole, into a human being. Simply put, Yahweh can't become a human any more than a human can become Yahweh (God). Yahweh is THE ONE TRUE GOD and Yahshua Messiah is a human being. (Romans 1:1-4, 5:15)
In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His piety. (Heb. 5:7) 

Those who are in the flesh can not please God. (Romans 8:8)

Yahshua – the man - was born, ate, drank, slept, grew, learned, and was susceptible to death. He was not self-sufficient or self-existent; as every other human being Yahshua needed specific things to sustain his mortal existence. If he was in fact the God of Israel he would rely on nothing to sustain His existence. The fact is, if Yahweh became a man He would necessarily have to relinquish many divine attributes; which would render Him no longer God. It is important to understand that God does not and cannot change who He is; Yahweh cannot be both God and not God. It is also important to understand that Yahweh is to be SERVED – He is not anyone’s servant, nor would His divinity allow Him to “humble” himself in that respect. If that were the case, He would cease to be the God of ALL creation. Yahshua said unequivocally that he "served" his Father - Yahweh, which made him, as all humans are, subordinate to and less than God.
In Revelation John wrote that Yahshua said: I was dead, and behold, I am alive forever more. Amen. I have the keys of Death and of Hades..”(Revelation 1:18)
So who is speaking to John here? Is it the "fully God" Yahshua or the "fully human" Yahshua? You have to answer this question - it can't be side-stepped.
Will trinitarians answer that the person John is speaking with is the fully human Yahshua because they admit that "God" can't die? No. They must apply this answer as a yet-to-be discovered "mystery." So what of their fully God and fully human Messiah? Unfortunately, if you believe that Yahshua Messiah is both fully God and fully human you have marched off the map! GOD CANNOT DIE! The person John was speaking with was the human Yahshua who had been killed and resurrected by Yahweh.
Revelation 1:18 should be the most inspirational passage to those who call on the name of Yahweh for salvation. Yahshua is telling John that he was dead and now is alive forever more. How beyond excited John must have been to see his beloved friend again alive! To see Yahshua in person and to hear him say "I am alive!"
If John was aware that his friend was also "fully God" then he would expected that he would survive death - simply because John knew that God can't die. But the person speaking to John specifically tells him that he was dead. That person can't possibly be both God and man!
2. Yahweh is the essence of the worship and Yahshua gives our example.
God is the object of worship and was the object of Jesus’ worship. Had Jesus been God, he would have told people to worship him. But he did the exact opposite as in (Matthew 15:9).             
Then Jesus said to him, “Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve him only/alone.’” (Matthew 4:10) Jesus was an “offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma” [worship]. (Ephesians 5:2) Yahshua said these things, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may also glorify you; even as you gave him authority over all flesh, he will give eternal life to all whom you have given him. This is eternal life, that they should know YOU, the ONE (monos) true God, and him whom you sent, Yahshua Messiah. 4 I glorified you on the earth. I have accomplished the work which you have given me to do. (John 17:1-4) It is clear by this statement that Yahshua knew that his Father was the ONE and ONLY true object of worship! 
3. The Trinity is the epitome of confusion.
            God is not the author of confusion.
The trinity can’t be explained to an adult, let alone a child. How would a child ever understand the trinity? How did the “jailer” and his “whole household” (including his children) understand and believe to be saved if the trinity is essential to salvation?
See the “Athanasian Creed
Is the resurrected Jesus still fully God and man? If so, doesn’t he represent a duality of person-hood within the trinity? And wouldn’t it be more correct to call the Godhead a Quadrinity instead of Trinity?
Respected biblical scholars agree that the trinity is incomprehensible. (Read their works on the subject) But followers Yahshua Messiah have been promised that we can know and understand even the "deep things of God" as we have been given the "spirit which is from God" and also the very "mind of Christ."
10 But to us, God revealed them through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God’s Spirit. 12 But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things... 15 But he who is spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one. 16 “For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him?” But we have Christ’s mind. (1 Corinthians 2) Also read John 17 and see what Yahshua Messiah prayed to his Father about our "understanding" of the deep spiritual things of Yahweh.
"So why do even those who believe in the Trinity find it so difficult to explain?
The answer is simple yet shocking: It’s because the Bible does not teach it! One cannot prove or explain something from the Bible that is not biblical! The Bible is our only reliable source of divine revelation. And the truth, as we will see, is that the Trinity concept simply is not part of God’s revelation to humankind."
4. Yahshua is God’s prophet – His anointed “agent” (Deut. 18:15)
“Yahweh your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him.” 17 Yahweh said to me, “They have well said that which they have spoken. 18 I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you. I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him. 19 It shall happen that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
Then a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, My Chosen One; listen to Him! (Luke 9:35, Mark 9:7, Matthew 17:5)
16 For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”— 18 and we ourselves heard this utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. 19 So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
(1 Peter 1:16-21)
5. God anointed/appointed Jesus – the man - to be our high priest forever. (Hebrews 5-6)
4 And no one takes the honor to himself, but receives it when he is called by God, even as Aaron was. 5 So also Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You”; 6 just as He says also in another passage,
“You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.” 7 In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him [e]from death, and He [f]was heard because of His piety. 8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. 9 And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, 10 being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
6. Yahweh “exalted” Yahshua above the heavens and “crowned with glory and honor” (Heb.2:7)
As for Yahshua the “mere” man, it has so pleased Yahweh the Most High God to exalt him above the heavens and to seat him at His right hand, making Jesus second only to Yahweh in the universe. Yahshua is thus “crowned with glory and honor”. But how can the trinitarian Jesus be crowned with—conferred with—glory and honor when as God he has always had this glory from all eternity? (See also 1 Cor. 15:25f)
7. God cannot change. (Malachi 3:6) 
“For I, Yahweh, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not  consumed.”
8. God is not subjected to the laws He created.
Jesus was subject to God's created laws. He was born, drank, ate, slept, prayed, died and was resurrected by God.
9. God “begat” Yahshua at a definitive point in time – Yahshua did not preexist (Luke 1:35) 
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 
“You are My Son, Today I have begotten you” (Psalms 2:7, Acts 13:33, Hebrews 5:5)
10. The “begotten” Messiah was “anointed” by Yahweh – who is his creator and superior (Psalms 2) Yahweh has always been (I am that I am), Yahshua Messiah has not. 
1 Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yahweh and against his Anointed (Yahshua) saying, 3 “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” 4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. 5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, 6 “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.” 7 I will tell of the decree: Yahweh said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. 8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” 10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. 11 Serve Yahweh with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
11. Yahshua is the “image/likeness of God. (Col. 1:15 - Philippians 2:6 - 2 Corinthians 4:4 - Hebrews 1:3)
As Jesus is the “image/likeness” of God, and the first commandment tells us not to have ANY God’s other than the one God of Israel -by God’s own words, Jesus cannot be God! An image of "something," no matter how exact that image is, is not the "something." If that were the case, then Adam, being made in the "image" of God, is by the trinitarian definition, the one in the same God. 
Expounding on the first commandment; Moses wrote: You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness*of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God…”
*When the man called Jesus “good,” Jesus denied being “good,” and told the man that ONLY God was “good.” He essentially told the man that he was NOT God and to be careful NOT to make him (Jesus) an Idol. We can be assured that Jesus was familiar with Exodus 20:1-6)
12. Yahshua referred to his Father as “his” and “our” God. (Mark 12:29) 
Just who was Yahshua's "God?" He clearly tells us many times that his Father IS HIS GOD! Are we to believe that Yahshua believed his father Yahweh was a 3-person God?
28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, “What commandment is the foremost of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The foremost is, ‘Hear, O Israel! Yahweh is OUR God. Yahweh is one; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ Also: Mark 15:34, John 20:17, Luke 18:19, Eph 1:3, 1Cor 11:3
13. Yahweh is the God and Father of Yahshua Messiah.
“As a preliminary point, we note that Yahweh is our Father: “You, O Yahweh, are our Father” (Isaiah 63:16; also 64:8). “Is this the way you repay Yahweh, you foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father who created you?” (Dt.32:6; cf. Mal.2:10). But more specifically, Yahweh is also the God and Father of Yahshua Messiah: “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God” (Jn.20:17). Just three chapters earlier, Yahshua calls his Father “the only true God” (John 17:3), an exclusive identification that aligns perfectly with Isaiah 45:5: “I am Yahweh, and there is no other, besides me there is no God”. Hence Yahweh is the God and Father of Yahshua Messiah.” (From “The Only Perfect Man” – Eric H. H. Chang)
Paul knew that there was only one God of Israel and that Yahweh was in fact God of ALL creation - including His son Yahshua. He wrote to the Ephesian Ekklesia and prayed: "that the God of our Lord Yahshua Messiah, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him;" Did you get that? The same God Paul worshiped was also the God of Yahshua. Paul also made it clear when he said, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." 1 Timothy 2:5

15 The seventh angel sounded, and great voices in heaven followed, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord God Yahweh, and of his Messiah. He will reign forever and ever!” Revelation 11:15 Yahshua is Yahweh's Messiah - THE ANOINTED ONE of Yahweh. 
14. Yahshua's own words emphatically imply that he was NOT Yahweh or equal with Him in any way! (See also #15)
[John 17:3] – Salvation depends on one knowing the ONE true God and Jesus Christ whom You (God) have sent.
[John 5:44]- How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the ONE and ONLY God?
[John 20:17] – “Jesus said unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”
How can the Father ascend to Himself? In the above verse, Jesus not only distinguishes between himself and his Father, but he also makes it sound as though the relationship that he has with God, 'The Father,' is exactly the same relationship that all people have with G0d, who is, in fact, the Father of all. 
[Matthew 19:16-17] - And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why do you call me good? There is none good but ONE, that is, God: but if you wish to enter into life, keep THE  commandments. (Exodus 20: 1-6) Yahshua did not say he was "good" because he knew only his Father fit that description. He implied clearly that he is subordinate and lower than his father.
In the above verses, Jesus distinguishes between himself and God. How could he have been the 'Mighty Gd,' if he himself made a distinction between himself and God? If Jesus knew that only God is good, and that he should not be called good, then Jesus knew that Jesus was not God.

[Mark 13:32] - “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." If Jesus was God he would know - and so would the Holy Spirit.
[Matthew 20:23] - “You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.” If Jesus was God he would have authority to make grant this request. This shows that Yahshua is subordinate to his Father - Yahweh.
[John 17:3] - "Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only (monos) true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." If Jesus was God he would have simply said, "if they had known me - the one true God."
[Matthew 27:46] - And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, 'Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?' that is, 'My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?' Who is Jesus calling out to and how can God forsake Himself?
[Matthew 26:39] - And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will."
Jesus calls the One to whom he prayed his Father, so how can Jesus be 'the Everlasting Father,' if he called another his Father? How could Jesus be the Father if the will of Jesus is not the same as the will of the Father? This denies the very idea of the trinity.
[1 Cor. 15:25-28] "For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death. For, “He put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when he says, “All things are put in subjection”, it is evident that he is excepted who subjected all things to him. When all things have been subjected to Him, then the Son will also himself BE SUBJECTED TO HIM [Yahweh] who subjected all things to him, that God may be all in all." When the "last enemy" (Death) has been abolished, then Yahweh will again be over ALL THINGS - including His son - the Messiah.
15. Yahshua said his “teaching” was NOT his… [John 7:17]

“Jesus therefore answered them, “My teaching is NOT mine, but his who sent me.” 

If Yahshua were co-equal with his Father – and fully God, his teaching would be “equal” to the fathers and there could not possibly be a distinction between the two “persons.” So why would Yahshua say that his teaching is NOT his, but his Fathers? 

If Yahshua was co-equally divine with the other two divine persons of the trinity - God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, when he said that he could only speak and act as directed by his Father then he couldn't possibly be co-equal with God the Father. Notwithstanding Yahshua's relationship to God the Holy Spirit, this relationship dynamic, that Yahshua personally verified as a fact, necessarily makes him subordinate to the Father, which unequivocally  means  that Yahshua is NOT co-equally divine. If trinitarians insist that Yahshua is divine, then he is a lessor divine person than God the Father. He obviously isn't co-equally divine and by his own words is subordinate to God the Father. Again, it isn't clear where God the Holy Spirit fits into the trinitarian dynamic. 

16. Jesus said that he was the Messiah – NOT God. (Mark 14:61-62)
“But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven… (Matthew 16:16-18)
…Then He/Jesus warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ.
Jesus told the high priests that he was the son of God… (Mark 14:61-62)

17. Yahweh is the “Father” of ALL – Including the Father of Yahshua. Yahshua clearly said so... (John 20:17)
"The New Testament speaks of Yahweh as the Lord, the God, and the Father of believers. Significantly, Yahweh is all of these things to Jesus, e.g., “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God” (John 20:17). There is no biblical problem in referring to Yahweh by these three titles (Lord, God, Father) even in relation to Jesus.
Paul likewise speaks of “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom.15:6; 2Cor.1:3; 11:31; Eph.1:3; cf. 1Pet. 1:3). If Jesus is really God, then God would be the God of God.
The very fact that Jesus has a Father already rules him out as God. That is because Paul speaks of “one God and Father of all” (Eph.4:6). In other words, there is only one God, and that God is the Father of all. Therefore anyone who is not the Father of all is not God. But Jesus is certainly not the Father (not even in trinitarianism), much less the Father of all. God’s people are not called “sons of Jesus” or “children of Christ,” nor do they cry out, “Abba Christ!” On the contrary, 1John 5:18 says that we are “born of God” and that Jesus was “born of God”—in the same sentence." (From “The Only Perfect Man” – Eric H. H. Chang)

18. Yahshua was NOT a schizophrenic.
If Jesus is “fully God” and “fully human” then his words would make him out to be schizophrenic. He said God was greater than he, that he was not “good,” that he was God’s slave. But he also said if you knew (had seen) him then you knew (had seen) God and that he was “one” with God. So how difficult was it for his disciples to distinguish “which” Jesus was speaking – the God/Jesus or the human/Jesus.

If Jesus is fully God and fully man then his prayer in the garden before he was taken and crucified is the best example of a schizophrenic episode. Think about the dialog Jesus is having with someone who he is supposedly co-equal with? And not only co-equal with, but if you believe the trinity,  also the same "essence" of being. Why would Jesus be under such agony and distress if he holds the same power, knows all things and even has the identical will as the co-equal God he is praying to? Seriously, if Jesus and the God he is praying to are EQUAL in every respect, it makes no sense that Jesus would be in agony and distress because he knows EVERYTHING! Please take these facts into consideration and read the accounts in Luke 22 and Matthew 26. If Jesus is just a human then his prayer makes perfect sense. But if Jesus is "God" as trinitarians believe, it calls into question not only his sanity, but the entire plan of a multi-person god.

In fact, if his disciples were Trinitarians then they would have always had to discern exactly which Jesus was speaking. The same goes for Trinitarians today; they have to discern for themselves which Jesus spoke which words. The problem then comes when Jesus says that ALL his words and actions come from his Father. So what are we to do with that statement?

If Jesus were co-equal and of the same essence as the God of Israel then why would he make the following statement saying that his Father was the "only true God?"

Jesus said these things, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may also glorify you; even as you gave him authority over all flesh, he will give eternal life to all whom you have given him. This is eternal life, that they should know you (Yahweh), the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ. I glorified you on the earth." (John 17:1-4)

19. God has many “sons” – and daughters. (Psalm 2:7, 82:6)
The term “son of God” is not exclusive to Jesus as many were called “sons of God” in the OT and NT.  So just being called that does not make Jesus the divine son of God any more than Adam and Eve were divine because God made them.  Jesus was the only “begotten” son of God because he was created through being “born” of a woman without a human father.

20. God cannot be tempted. (James 1:11)
                Jesus was tempted. (Matthew 4:1-11, James 1:13, Hebrews 4:15)
*Only AFTER he received the Holy Spirit.
“But the New Testament declares that Jesus is a man, a true human being who was tempted like us in every respect. That being so, how could Jesus have faced every temptation in life without having once failed? The trinitarian’s answer to this question has the effect of reducing it—and the central struggle of human life—to meaninglessness, for if Jesus is God, then he cannot be tempted, much less succumb to sin. It would be unconvincing to say that Jesus empathizes with our moral and spiritual struggles, or with our painful defeats in these struggles, when he himself can never fall and doesn’t even need to struggle, since no temptation can ever bring down God. This makes Jesus’ humanity irrelevant for us.” (From “The Only Perfect Man” – Eric H. H. Chang)

21. God can have no part in sin – flesh.
Jesus was made in the likeness of sinful flesh. (Romans 8:3)
By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; (1 John 4:2)
In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His piety. (Hebrews 5:7)
*If Jesus were God, living sinless would be expected - not extraordinary.
Jesus made a choice to accept good over evil. (Isiah 7:14-16) We can do the same thing!
God is pro-life and pro-choice.  

22. God knows all things.
Jesus does not know the time when he will return. He explicitly said that ONLY the Father knows…” (Matthew 24:36, Mark 13:32) This difference of “knowledge” proves there is a distinct separation of the two persons of Yahweh and Yahshua – “only” the Father “knows” and is omniscient, but NOT the son – and for that matter, not even the Holy Spirit. This truth causes a fatal problem for Trinitarians because their “Godhead” of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are supposed to be “co-equal” in ALL aspects of divinity.
                Also, Jesus did not know who had touched his robe in a large crowd. (Luke 8:43-48)
Even as the central theme of his message – the gospel of the coming kingdom of God - Jesus didn’t know when that kingdom of Israel would be restored (Acts 1:6) Jesus – even after his resurrection - specifically tells his followers that only his Father (and his God) knows that answer.
                God gave the “revelation” to Jesus. So why didn’t Jesus know it? (Revelation 1:1)
                Jesus said I only speak what I hear from my Father. (John 5:19, 8:28, 12:49-50)
Trinitarians must agree, regarding the “fully God” Yahshua, that as far as his omniscience, the “fully human” Yahshua was obviously on a “need-to-know” basis.
*“We are then left with two possibilities: either Jesus is not God, or God is not omniscient! The former is biblically correct but unacceptable to trinitarians, whereas the latter is blasphemous.”
*(From “The Only Perfect Man” – Eric H. H. Chang)

23. God holds supreme authority over every created thing. There is NO “co-equality” between Yahweh and Yahshua!
                Jesus did not have authority to appoint who sits at his right/left hand.
                Jesus’ authority comes from God – but God is not subject to Jesus’ authority.
For He (Jesus) must reign until He (Jesus) has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death. For He (God) has put all things in subjection under His (Jesus’) feet. But when He (Yahweh) says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He (Yahweh) is the exception who put all things in subjection to Him (Yahshua). When all things are subjected to Him (God), then the Son Himself (Jesus) also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all. (1 Cor. 15:25-28)
Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father but by me.” (So - no one comes to me but by me?)

24. Jesus is, and always has been, subordinate to God (1 Cor. 15) 
            Jesus will one day “hand-over” the kingdom of God and Father (1 Cor. 15)
 I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous; because I don’t seek my own will, but the will of my Father who sent me. (John 5:30)
Jesus said he was not the one who will judge the world – His Father Judges (John 12:49)
For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death. For He has put all things in subjection under His feet. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him. When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all. (1 Cor. 15:25-28)

25. God’s “word” is the “only” true word. (Deut. 18:15-18)
 Jesus only spoke the words God gave him to speak; he NEVER spoke for himself. (John 12:49-50)
“For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.”
If we are to believe Yahshua, were the words he spoke 100% from Yahweh? If not, how do we distinguish between the words of the “human” Yahshua vs. the “God” Yahshua?

26. Yahweh cannot die (Immortal) - Yahshua died (Mortal) (Psalms 90:2. Malachi 3:6, Revelation 1:4, 17, 2:8))
Jesus told John in Revelation 1:18 – “I was dead…” So who was talking to John here? Was it the man Jesus or the God Jesus?
In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His piety. (Heb. 5:7)
1 Timothy 1:17 To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. 
[1 Timothy 6:1who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.  ESV]
1 Corinthians 15:3 Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures 
Romans 5:10 We were reconciled to God through the death of His Son.
             
Jesus died and was dead for three days – It was God who raised him from the dead.
                If Jesus is the inseparable fully God /fully man, then who died on the cross?  
                Did Jesus/God raise himself from the dead?
Was God an “offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma” to himself. (Ephesians 5:2
27. God is ALL Powerful: Yahshua attributed everything he did and said to his Father.
"I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous; because I don’t seek my own will, but the will of my Father who sent me." (John 5:30)
Jesus’ powers were given to him through the giving of the Holy Spirit by God.
‘All power is given unto me.’ (Matt 28:18)
Jesus only performed miracles AFTER he received the Holy Spirit.
Jesus was tempted by Satan for 40 days – AFTER he received the Holy Spirit – and even then, Jesus needed “help” from angles.
God is all-powerful, no one gives God His powers, and otherwise He would not be God because He would be weak.  Therefore, Jesus could not be God.
Jesus was born a man. He ate, drank, slept and prayed. Jesus was not self-sufficient - he needed something to sustain his existence, but God needs nothing to sustain His existence.
*”Since God Almighty is omnipotent, would it not be blasphemous to speak of Him as weak? If God the Son is of the same substance as God the Father, he would also be omnipotent and could not in any sense be described as weak. The point is simple: If he is weak, he is not God. If he is Almighty, he is not man. If he is mortal, he is not God. If he is immortal, he is not man.” *(From “The Only Perfect Man” – Eric H. H. Chang) 
In 2 Corinthians 13:4 the apostle Paul clearly states that it was due to his "weakness" that Yahshua suffered and died and that it is by the power of Yahweh that he now lives.
 "For he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives through the power of God."
28. God doesn’t need to grow-up or learn anything. (Malachi 3:6)
Jesus had limitations of knowledge and had to learn things - growing in wisdom and stature. (Luke 2:52)
Yahshua learned and was made perfect through his suffering and tribulations while in the flesh. (Hebrews 5:7-10)
Trinitarians say that Isiah 7:14-16 refers to Jesus. If this is true, then as a young boy, Jesus did not know right from wrong (Vs. 16) and at some point had to choose good over evil.  (This incident may not even refer to Jesus’ birth)
*At what point did God the son in heaven enter/possess Jesus the man – spatially, functionally and geographically? As a toddler or adolescent, or what point in his life?
“The biblical Jesus, in his pleas to his Father Yahweh, “was heard in that he feared” (Heb.5:7, KJV). What did he fear? Physical death? Certainly not, for Jesus was the one who said, “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Mt.10:28) What Jesus feared was not death but the mortal danger of succumbing to sin and thus failing the mission of redeeming mankind from sin. I am confident that whatever fear Jesus had, it was not for himself, just as Paul (who had the mind of Christ, 1Cor.2:16) was willing to be accursed for the sake of his fellow Jews, exchanging his soul for theirs (Rom.9:3).
But with the weight of mankind’s redemption resting on his shoulders, Jesus could still fail on his part, notwithstanding the benefit of Yahweh’s indwelling presence in him. We might not be able to understand the weight of responsibility that rested on his soul, but we are fully aware of the frightening possibility of moral failure even in the case of one who is indwelt by Yahweh’s Spirit and can therefore avail of God’s power for victory over sin. We thus have a glimpse of the wonder and magnificence of Jesus’ triumph over sin. It was through the sufferings from many trials and temptations over the years that he attained perfection to become the Perfect Man.
Jesus is the victorious Last Adam in contrast to the First Adam. His victory over sin secured the redemption of mankind, hence the resurrected Jesus became a “life-giving spirit” (1Cor.15:45).”
(From “The Only Perfect Man” – Eric H. H. Chang)

29. God is NOT an “heir” of anything (Heb. 1:1-4)
God, is not an heir and does not inherit His own belongings – especially His name.
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 [a]in these last days has spoken to us [b]in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the [c]world. 3 [d]And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and [e]upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.
But we do see Him who was made [j]for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone. (Hebrews 2:9)
So if Jesus is God how is it that he became lower than angles and had to inherit his name – which put him above the angles?

30. Jesus “received HONOR and GLORY FROM God the Father:” (1 Peter 1:17, Acts 3:13, John 8:54)
For when He received honor and glory FROM God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”— 18 and we ourselves heard this utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. 1 Peter 1:17-18
Yahshua answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory IS NOTHING; it is my Father who glorifies me…” John 8:54 (Two points: 1. If Yahshua were “equal” with God he would already have all glory. 2. Yahshua admits openly that he “received” glory FROM Yahweh – proving that he is not “equal” or “greater” than Yahweh)
If Jesus was God he would – eternally – HAVE “honor and glory.” But scripture is very clear that Jesus “received honor and glory” at a specific time to have Peter, John and James not only as witnesses to his receiving honor and glory from God, but also for the three men to receive a directive from God to “listen to him/Jesus.”
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant Jesus, the one whom you delivered and disowned in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him. Acts 3:13
Certainly the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob would not have to bestow glory on Himself?

31. Jesus was created lower than angels – for a while. (Hebrews 2:7, 9)
"You made him a little lower than the angels. You crowned him with glory and honor."(vs7) "But we do see him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus."(vs9)
Yahweh, the Creator of angels, cannot be lower than His own creation, but scripture clearly states that Yahshua was "for a little while" lower than angles. Because Yahshua was a human - born of a woman - he was lower than the angles for a while until he was raised from the dead and "crowned with glory and honor" by his Father Yahweh.
The Messiah - Yahshua - was NOT God and is not now or ever going to be God.

32. Jesus was a “mediator” “between” God and man. (1 Timothy 2:5)
If Yahshua is the "mediator" who is "between" God and men, he can't also be "fully God” as taught by Trinitarians! No person can mediate “between” himself and another. In which case, one can logically conclude that the all-powerful Yahweh also cannot "mediate" between Himself and another. If Yahshua IS, as this scripture indicates, a mediator “between” Yahweh and men, then he can’t possibly also be fully God.

33. God needs favor from no one. (Luke 2:52)
                Jesus garnered favor from God.  
"And Jesus INCREASED in wisdom and stature, and in favor WITH GOD and men."
34. God is and always has been spirit - invisible:
Before his resurrection Jesus was just a man and could be seen by anyone. (Romans 5:19 - and many other places) Where was Yahshua when Yahweh interacted with Moses and passed by him on the  mountain?
35. God bears His own testimony.
                Apart from his Father/God, Jesus said his testimony was not true. John 5:31-32  
               “If I testify about myself, my witness is not valid. It is another who testifies about me. 
                 I know that the testimony which he testifies about me is true."
 
36. God has one will - His good and perfect will.
Jesus had a will apart from God. (Not MY will, but your (Yahweh's) will be done) John 5:30, Mark 14:36, Luke 22:42

37. God gave Jesus the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17)
After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.”
If Jesus is co-equal with God and the Holy Spirit, and has existed eternally, why didn’t Jesus already have the Holy Spirit? At Jesus’ baptism, God sent His Spirit into Jesus. So was it the “human” Yahshua that received the Holy Spirit?

38. God “set His seal” upon Jesus (John 6:27)
Jesus said, “Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him (Jesus) the Father, God, has set His seal.” A “seal” was a sign of ownership/possession and genuineness by the one who “set” the seal. In declaring that his Father has “set His seal” upon him, Jesus agreed that his Father “owns” him, and that he (Jesus) is under His Father’s complete control and guidance. His Father’s seal also gave proof that Jesus was the “genuine Messiah” – through the signs and wonders performed by Jesus.

39. God is the Glory
                If Jesus was eternally fully God - he would be eternally glorified.
                See “Athanasian Creed” #6, #7
                But as scripture states: God “glorified” His son – Jesus (John 17:1, 13:31-32)
See also John 8:49 - This "ONE" Jesus speaks of can only be God. If Jesus were "fully God," not only would he be eternally glorified as God is, he would be as the "One" he speaks of seeking glory - GOD! So in this case, Jesus - the “co-equal” God person – is not so equal at all.

40. God is deserving of all glory and honor.
Jesus agreed, and only received his glory from God and was only a conduit to God’s glory. (John 5:22-23, 7:1f – vs 3*)
                Jesus did not seek his own glory – only the glory of his Father – his God.

41. God is greatest of all.
Jesus said his Father (God) was “greater than ALL” – and “greater than I.” (John 10:29, 14:28)
The eternal co-equal trinity crumbles on this fact alone!
God is the head of Christ (1 Cor. 11:3)
God made Jesus both Lord and Christ. (Acts 2:36)
                Jesus was made “lower” than angles for a time, later he was “crowned” with glory. (Heb. 2)
                Jesus is, and always has been, subordinate to God (1 Cor. 15)
                Jesus will one day “hand-over” the kingdom of God and Father (1 Cor. 15)
                Jesus said God was the only true God. (John 17:3)
                Jesus is God’s “holy servant.” (Acts 40:30)
                God has never been lower than or subject to anyone or anything
                Every word and deed of Jesus exalted and pointed to God 
*A great contradiction occurs when Yahshua says that he and the Father are “one,” and also says that the Father is “greater” than he. Both can’t be true!

42. God can do all things.
                Jesus said he could do nothing without his Fathers direction/power. (John 5:19-20, 30)
30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.”
Jesus’ power and knowledge was limited by God (Mark 8:22-26, Mark 6:5) If the trinity  doctrine says that all three persons of the godhead are co-equal then the Father would not have any greater power than Jesus. In fact, if the trinity doctrine is true, Jesus could do anything the Father does, but scripture clearly contradicts the trinity doctrine.
43. Jesus was called/identified a “man” (1 Timothy 2:5-6) (1 Cor. 15:20-22f – read the entire context)
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people.
20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21 For since by a man (Adam) came death, by a man (Jesus) also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam (A man) all die, so also in Christ (A man) all will be made alive.
44 If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last (man) Adam (Jesus) became a life-giving spirit. (Paul goes on to say that if Jesus was not raised from the dead then there is no hope and those who follow him, and they are all to be pitied. His argument was that Jesus the man had in fact died on the cross – just like the two other men beside him.)
When Jesus said “It is finished,” (John 19:30) he implied that he had done everything his Father had told him to do on this earth as a man. The next step was all on God! (“Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.)” Jesus knew he could NOT perform the next step – which was to be raised from the dead to a NEW spiritual/imperishable body. Jesus proved to all mankind that God was true to His promise – that man could live again as immortal. The act of obedience by Jesus and the reward of his eternal life by God is what all mankind can look to with the hope and assurance that there IS eternal/immortal life after death. Jesus, the second Adam, paved the way to eternal life in the Kingdom of God!
44 It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour, 45 because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 46 And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last. (Luke 23:44-46)

44. There is no God but One.
                Jesus said that having only “ONE God” was the foremost commandment. (Shema)
So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. (John 1:4-6)

45. God is good.
                Jesus agreed and said, “no one is good but God alone.” (Denying that he was God/divine)
                If Jesus was God he would not have rebuked the man for saying he was good.

46. God has moral superiority.
                Jesus grew in morality. (Heb. 5:7-9)

47. God commands obedience.
                Jesus learned obedience through suffering – and Jesus obeyed all God’s commands

48. God fears nothing.
                Jesus feared (had reverence) God. (Heb. 5:7)

49. God taught & commanded Jesus
‘As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,’ (John 8:28)
‘The Father, who sent me, he gave me a commandment.’ (John 12:49)
‘I have kept my Father’s commandments.’ (John 15:10)
No one can teach God, otherwise God cannot be All-Knowing and would owe His teacher.  Since Jesus was taught and commanded by God, Jesus cannot be God himself.  The teacher and the student, the commander and the commanded are not one.

50. God made Jesus both ‘lord’ and “messiah” (Acts 2:36, 5:31, Romans 14:9)
‘God has made this Jesus both Lord and Christ.’ (Acts 2:36, 5:31)
‘Lord (lord) is used in many ways in the Bible, and others beside God and Jesus are called ‘Lord.’ For example:
1)    property owners (Matt. 20:8)
2)    heads of households (Mark 13:35)
3)    slave owners (Matt. 10:24)
4)    husbands (1 Pet. 3:6)
5)    a son called his father Lord (Matt. 21:30)
6)    the Roman Emperor was called Lord (Acts 25:26)
7)    Roman authorities were called Lord (Matt. 27:63)

‘Lord’ is not the same as ‘God.’ ‘Lord’ (the Greek word is kurios) is a masculine title of respect and nobility used many times in the Bible.  If Jesus was God, then for the Bible to say he was ‘made’ Lord would make no sense.

51. God does NOT have to “overcome” anything. 
 Jesus said that he “overcame,” just as we also, if we want to have eternal life, must overcome.  (Revelation 3:21)
52. Jesus called the Father ‘my God’
‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?’ (Matt. 27:46)
‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.’ (John 20:17)
‘the temple of my God the name of my God the city of my God comes down out of heaven from my God.’ (Rev. 3:12)
Jesus did not think of himself as God, instead Jesus’ God is the same as ours.

53. Jesus’ God is also our God.
                Jesus said "I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."
(John 20:17)

54. Jesus’ Apostles/disciples did not believe he was God. (Ephesians 1:17) 
that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. Acts 2:22, Matthew 12:18, Acts 5:29-30  
Paul knew that there was only one God of Israel and that Yahweh was in fact God of ALL creation - including His son Yahshua. He wrote to the Ephesian Ekklesia and prayed: "that the God of our Lord Yahshua Messiah, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him;" Did you get that? The same God Paul worshiped was also the God of Yahshua.
Paul also was very clear about the distinction between Yahweh and Yehshua in his first letter to the Corinthians:
Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that no idol is anything in the world, and that there is no other God but oneFor though there are things that are called “gods”, whether in the heavens or on earth; as there are many “gods” and many “lords”; yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we live through him.  (vs 4-6)
Paul does not depict Jesus as co-equal with God, but instead says that God is of superior rank to Jesus:
 “But I would have you know that the head of every man in Christ and the head of the woman is the man and the head of Christ is God” (1 Corinthians 11:3).
Paul puts a considerable strain on “trinitarianism” when he clearly distinguishes between God and Jesus by saying:
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5)
Paul did not indicate any change in the nature of God as he wrote:
“A mediator is not a mediator of one, BUT GOD IS ONE.” (Galatians 3:20)
The disciples viewed Jesus as the “one mediator between God and men,” not as God himself, but two separate beings.
 While Jesus is often called the Son of God, nobody in the first century ever thought of him as being a deity. Paul confirms this relationship as he wrote:
“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.” (2Corinthians 1:3)
The idea of a trinity is not even present in the Church of Jerusalem when Peter, leader of the church wrote:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:3)
If Yahshua had made it clear to his disciples that he was in fact God, then it would stand to reason that they, in their teachings and writings, would have made every effort to convey that miraculous message to the world - that the God of Israel had incarnated into a man. But they didn't - WHY? Simply because Yahshua never said he was God and his disciples understood that he was the son of Yahweh - not Yahweh.
55. Satan does not believe Jesus is God.
Satan never referred to Jesus (during the temptation) as “God.” Satan said, “If you are the “son of God…”
Even Satan knows Jesus is NOT God!

56. Jesus was God’s servant – God’s emissary - not God’s equal
                See the “Athanasian Creed
                Matthew 12:18, Acts 3:13 & 26, Matt. 9:8,
‘a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst.’ (Acts 2:22)
“he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’ (Acts 10:38)
If Christ was God, the Bible would simply say that Jesus did the miracles himself without making reference to God.  The fact that it was God supplying the power for the miracles shows that God is greater than Jesus.
*Jesus did not begin his ministry (Preaching repentance and the coming kingdom of God) until after he was baptized and received the holy spirit. (Matthew 4:17)

57. Jesus was sent by God and was given authority by God (John 3:34-36) 
34 For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure. 35 The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand. 36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not [j]obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, (Heb. 2:11)
Being “sent by God” is not exclusive to Jesus – Clearly, Hebrews says that both man and Jesus were sent “from ONE God.”
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You - With the oil of gladness above your companions.” (Heb. 1:9)

58. Jesus regarded himself and God as two separate and distinct persons. (Gospel of John testifies to this) 
‘I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father.’ (John 8:17-18:) 
‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.’ (John 14:1) 
“If you have seen ME you have seen the FATHER also.”Thomas “gets it” when he “sees and believes” – “Thomas answered, My Lord and my God.”
If Jesus was God, He would have not have regarded God’s testimony as separate from his own.
59. Jesus is subordinate to God (John 5:30)
                See the “Athanasian Creed
‘Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.’ (1 Corinthians 11:3)
‘When he has done this, then the son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.’ (1 Corinthians 15:28)

60. God gave Jesus “all authority in heaven and earth.” (Yahweh as the only exception) (Matthew 28:18) 
 The point is that Yahweh “gave” something to Yahshua that he did NOT already possess. If Jesus is eternally and equally God, then he would logically already possess “all authority.”
61. Jesus submitted and was led fully by God’s Spirit (His teachings) John 3:34, 14:24
Upon receiving God’s Spirit after baptism, the man Jesus was “led” into the wilderness by God’s Spirit. This is a perfect explanation of Jesus’ humanity – and his NOT being God. God does NOT “lead” Himself. (The word used in Mark 1:12 indicates that Jesus willingly allowed God’s Spirit to take total control of his life/actions: ekballo: I throw, cast, put out, banish, bring forth)
After being baptized and receiving God’s Spirit, Jesus attributes his every word and deed to his Father, and his every word and deed points to his Father – not himself.
“Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.” John 14:10
Jesus said I am the way – not the destination!
* (John 8:42) In this passage Yahshua clearly declares that he is NOT in control of his part in Yahweh’s plan – but that he is who he is, says what he says and does what he does only by Yahweh’s initiative.
In Matthew 12:30-32 Yahshua stated that the Holy Spirit was somehow more "superior or important" than he was.
30 “He who is not with me is against me, and he who doesn’t gather with me, scatters. 31 Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. 32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, neither in this age, nor in that which is to come.
Yahshua said that we can say what we want about him and can be forgiven, but not about the Holy Spirit. Why?

62. Jesus’ teachings were from God - not from himself 
 ‘So Jesus answered them and said, ‘My teaching is not mine, but His who sent me.’ (John 7:16) Jesus could not have said this if he were God because the doctrine would have been his.
I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous; because I don’t seek my own will, but the will of my Father who sent me. (John 5:30)
63. Jesus was God’s prophet that the Jews ASKED FOR.  (Deut. 18:15-18)
Jesus – the man - spoke God’s eternal words.
“The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me (a man) from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him… ‘Let me (Israel) not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die.’ 17 The Lord said to me, ‘They have spoken well. 18 I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen (Jew) like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. (Deut 18)
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son (Hebrews 1:1)
God’s “word” has eternally been a part of His person.   
Just because Jesus’ spoke God’s eternal words doesn’t mean Jesus was eternal.
God used His prophet Moses to lead His people out of slavery: but because the Lord loved you and kept the oath which He swore to your forefathers, the Lord brought you out by a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of [m]slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.” (Deut. 7:8)
God then used His son the prophet to lead the world out of slavery to sin. (Deut. 18:15-18)

64. Jesus admitted that he only lived (exists) because of God
‘I live because of the Father.’ (John 6:57)
Jesus cannot be God because he depended on God for his own existence.
“You are My Son, Today I have begotten You”? And again, “I will be a Father to Him
And He shall be a Son to Me”? (Heb. 1:5)
*If Yahshua is co-eternal with his Father then scripture contradicts that notion when it says “today I have begotten you.”
* (John 8:42) In this passage Yahshua clearly declares that he is NOT in control of his part in Yahweh’s plan – but that he is who he is, says what he says and does what he does only by Yahweh’s initiative. 

65. Jesus implied that the Holy Spirit – as God’s power - held more “clout” than he did. (Matthew 12:32, Luke 12:10)
32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
Jesus knew he was just as human as the next person – that he was NOT yahweh, and that ALL his power and authority came from his Father through His Holy Spirit. So making accusations against him - a man - was to accuse a mortal human being or person, but to make accusations against the Holy Spirit was akin to accusing the Yahweh.

66. Jesus’ disciples prayed to God – the same God Jesus told them to pray to.
The disciples prayed to God just as they were commanded by Jesus in Luke 11:2, and considered Jesus to be God’s servant.
‘They raised their voices together in prayer to God.  ‘Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ‘you made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them.’ (Acts 4:24)
‘…your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.’ (Acts 4:27)
‘…of Your holy servant Jesus.’ (Acts 4:30)

67. Yahweh - creator of all things – NOT a “triune” god. (In both the OT and NT) (Heb. 2)
Yahshua admitted that Yahweh was the creator of all things – not himself: (Matthew 19:4-6) “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female..."
Yahshua here asks the Pharisees, "Haven’t you read..." He was pointing to the Hebrew Scriptures as evidence to the Pharisees regarding who the "creator" was. Why didn't he simply tell them that he was the creator - and that all things were created through him? He didn't tell them that because Yahshua knows that there is ONE CREATOR  - Yahweh! This verse puts to rest any idea that Colossians 1:6 & John 1:3 are literally speaking about Yahshua Messiah being the "creator." 
Yahweh “alone” created all things: (Psalms 95:1-7) Oh come, let’s sing to Yahweh. Let’s shout aloud to the rock of our salvation! Let’s come before his presence with thanksgiving. Let’s extol him with songs! For Yahweh is a great God, a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth. The heights of the mountains are also his. The sea is his, and he made it.
His hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let’s worship and bow down. Let’s kneel before Yahweh, our Maker, for he is our God. (Yahweh – the personal name identifying Him as “Father,” but NO mention of the Trinitarian “second person” of godhead - “God the son” as creator)
*Jesus was a man created by God. God created the first Adam – and Eve (who were NOT God) and God created in the womb of the Virgin Mary the second Adam – born of a woman.
Jesus was born at a specific time and place and was designated (horizo) “son of God” by God. (Romans 1:1-4)
(1 Corinthians 15 proves beyond a doubt that Yahshua was a created man prior to his resurrection as compared to Adam: 20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21 For since death came by man (Adam), the resurrection of the dead also came by man (Yahshua). 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then those who are Christ’s, at his coming.
Trinitarians use John 1 to say that Jesus was “with” God in the genesis of creation and that all things were created through him/Jesus. But that can be easily refuted when we understand that God’s “word” has eternally been with Him. In the strictest sense of the existence of anything other than God, all things created have always been – as God’s eternal word. As in Ephesians 1, where it clearly states that “we” existed in God’s “word” before creation:
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before [d]Him. In love 5 [e]He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the [f]kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.
The promises of God are all based on His word. And our belief in those promises of God is reckoned to us as faith in something that has yet to happen or exist, but in actuality, those promises made by God are His word, and He tells us over and over in scripture to believe that those things not only will happen in our future, but have already happened and exist eternally in God’s word.
When John says the “word” became flesh it is more easily understood by Jesus’ own words when he said several times that he only spoke the “words” his Father told him to speak. So in essence, Jesus became God’s “word” in the flesh. 
Many verses show that Yahweh created all things without help from anyone. This is stated with double emphasis (“alone” and “by myself”) in the following verse:
Isaiah 44:24 I am Yahweh, who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself.
Question: When scripture states that Yahweh was “alone” and “all by Himself” where is Jesus and the Holy Spirit – or are they still there, but not “in use?”

68. God has never been seen by man - if anyone did see Him they would die. (Timothy 6:16)
Jesus said if you have seen me you have seen the Father, but none who saw Jesus died.
                Jesus declared God’s ways to the world.  (John 1:18)
Jesus was made in the “image/likeness” of God – he was not God incarnate.

69. God cannot be BORN – He is eternal and has no beginning.
Jesus had a physical beginning - God begat Jesus – if Jesus is God did God “begat” Himself? (Heb. 1:1-6) Jesus was a fertilized egg/zygote, embryo, fetus, infant, child, toddler, adolescent, teen, young man, adult.

At what point did the God part of Jesus become self-aware? Where was the Jesus/God before that point?
Essentially, Trinitarians must attribute Jesus’ being God to a transformation - not a begetting.

70. God sat Jesus at His “right hand.” (Heb. 1:13)
Did God set Himself/Jesus beside himself?
But to which of the angels has He ever said, “Sit at My right hand, Until I make Your enemies
A footstool for Your feet”? (Heb. 1:13)

71. Jesus said he was the ONLY way/path – but God is the final destination!
                I am the way, the truth and the life – no one comes to the Father but through me.”
                Everything Jesus said or did points to the Father.
                Jesus pointed “through” himself as a “way” to “come to the Father.”
                Jesus was God’s “guide.”

72. Jesus prayed to God 
 Did Jesus/God pray to himself? Was “God the Father” the “senior” “person” of the 3 persons?
73. Jesus cried out, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?"
Had Jesus/God forsaken Himself?

74. Jesus said He would ascend to the Father after His resurrection.
Did Jesus/God ascend to Himself?

75. Jesus is the “mediator” between God and Man. (1 Timothy 2:5)
How can God be His own mediator? “There is ONE God and ONE mediator between God and men – the MAN Christ Jesus”

76. Paul explains the importance of understanding Jesus’ part in God’s plan for mankind. (Ephesians 1)
Jesus was appointed by God as his heir, which, when God raised Jesus from the dead and sat him on His throne, marked the beginning of a new age and would usher in all ages to come.
These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

77. The Bible says twice that Jesus was “accused” of being God, but Jesus never specifically said “I am God.”
Trinitarians believe the words of Jesus' enemies (Lies) over the the words of Jesus (Truth) when it comes to assigning deity to him. While it is true that some of Jesus' enemies accused him of being God, their words do not make it so. 
Yahshua denied he was God: According to scripture, there are only two instances where the Jews opposed Jesus on the basis that he "claimed" to be God or equal with God. Had Jesus actually claimed to be God, he is likely to have been opposed on this basis at every opportunity by the Jewish leaders.

Because in these two instances, when charged, in the one case, with making himself God, and in the other, with making himself equal with God, he denied the charges.  In reply to the charge of being an equal with God, he says immediately:

‘The son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do’; and directly after ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:19, 30)

In answer to the charge of making himself God, he appeals to the Jews in substance thus: Your own Scriptures call Moses a god, and your magistrates gods; I am surely not inferior to them, yet I did not call myself God, but only the ‘son’ of God (John 10:34-36).

This is unlikely to have been Jesus’ actual response.  Hastings in ‘The Dictionary of the Bible’ says, ‘Whether Jesus used it of himself is doubtful.’ Grolier’s encyclopedia, under the heading ‘Jesus Christ,’ says, ‘it is uncertain whether the Father/Son language (Mark 18:32; Matt. 11:25-27 par.; John passim) goes back to Jesus himself.’ A University of Richmond professor, Dr. Robert Alley, after considerable research into newly found ancient documents concludes that:

‘The (Biblical) passages where Jesus talks about the Son of God are later additions. Such a claim of deity for himself would not have been consistent with his entire lifestyle as we can reconstruct.  For the first three decades after Jesus’ death Christianity continued as a sect within Judaism.  The first three decades of the existence of the church were within the synagogue. That would have been beyond belief if they (the followers) had boldly proclaimed the deity of Jesus.’
Assuming Jesus did say that he was ‘son’ of God.  What did it mean?  We first need to know the language of his people, the language of the Jews to whom he was speaking.

78. The Bible says God had many ‘sons’
First, most people think there are no other verses that contradict or give equal divine sonship to other persons in the Old or New Testament. 
For Jesus to be called son of God, does not make him a true son of God, other wise Adam, Jacob, Ephraim and many more should also be considered as been sons of God as such they should be worshiped too according to such method.
Adam: ‘Adam, which was the son of God.’ (Luke 3:38)
Jacob is God’s son and firstborn: ‘Israel is my son, even my firstborn.’ (Exodus 4:22)
Solomon: ‘I will be his father, and he shall be my son.’ (2 Samuel 7:13-14)
Ephraim: ‘for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.’ (Jeremiah 31:9)
is God’s firstborn, common people are called the sons of God: ‘Ye are the children of the Lord your God’ (Deuteronomy 14:1)

79. The Apostles never took opportunity to explain that Yahshua was a God-man.
In Acts 14 Paul and Barnabas were called god-men by the people who had witnessed a   healing miracle. The people said, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” The people were preparing to offer sacrifices to them and Paul and Barnabas both "tore their clothes, and sprang into the multitude, crying out, Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to the living God. So what were the "vain things" Paul and Barnabas told the people to turn from? The "vain things" was believing that gods can come down and live as god-men! However, instead of taking advantage of that "teachable moment" and explaining to them that the true God of Israel had in fact come down and became a God-man, Paul and Barnabas simply told the people that god-men were not real and that they should turn to the "living God" Yahweh. 

80. Yahweh does not have a "God," but  Yahshua's God is Yahweh - also "our" God. (John 20:17) It doesn't get any clearer than this.
Jesus said to her, “Don’t hold me, for I haven’t yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brothers, and tell them, ‘I am ascending to MY Father and YOUR Father, to MY God and YOUR God.’”

Q1. Why can’t (don’t) Trinitarians “understand” the teachings of Jesus about his relationship to his Father?
“Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks [n]a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of [o]lies. 45 But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.” John 8:43-47

Trinitarians are blinded to the truth because they are so invested in and devoted to the trinity doctrine – the doctrine of the devil!

7 What then? That which Israel seeks for, that he didn’t obtain, but the chosen ones obtained it, and the rest were hardened. 8 According as it is written, “God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, to this very day.” 9 David says,

“Let their table be made a snare, and a trap,
    a stumbling block, and a retribution to them.
Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see.
    Bow down their back always.”
(Romans 11:4-5)

But the Spirit says expressly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, through the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron;
(1 Timothy 2:1-2)

  2. Mickey - thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate your efforts to defend the trinity, but your "Prophecy Chart" only proves that you have a really good grasp of almost every defense of the trinity made by its long list of apologists.

    Please take the time to read the two books I have linked to on the page to get a really good understanding of how millions have been led astray since the inception of the Catholic Church.

    You also have to understand that when the Catholic Church was made the official religion of Rome by Emperor Theodosius I, just after the council of Constantinople in AD 381 ratified the deity of Yahshua and also conveyed deity status to the Holy Spirit, it was not an option for Catholics under Emperor Theodosius to reject the trinity doctrine on the penalties of excommunication, death/torture or banishment.

    Emperor Theodosius was intent on putting an end to the often bloody conflict between Christians who did not believe Yahshua was God and those who did. In the end, the trinity won the day by way of the power of the Roman Emperor - not an agreement by the Bishops.

    So you now understand that the trinity was not a doctrine that was in any was shape or form a consensus of Christian leaders. It was a doctrine that was pushed by Emperor Theodosius, who by-the-way was taught and influenced by a pro-trinity Bishop - who was in-part responsible for his Christian conversion

    The debate on the issue of the divinity of the Messiah raged on in a tense and often bloody dispute for the many decades between the Council of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381.

    Since 381 when Emperor Theodosius made Christianity the state religion, revisionist Christian history, which has been controlled mainly by trinitarians, has been in full mode; which played a major part in establishing the trinity as "settled" doctrine in almost every "Christian denomination since 381. Kind of the way global warming has been foisted upon the public by those who control the "history" and data by way of politics and intimidation.

    But thanks to the internet and those who have the gift of research, the truth is slowly coming out.”

    Blessings in your search for the truth in all things.

    1. Jesus tells me personally that He does NOT exist as three persons.
      I therefore do NOT believe God exists as a trinity of persons as you falsely accused me of believing.
      Jesus is God Almighty.

      My Prophecy Chart shows THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES, 267 verses in fact, that Jesus is God Almighty.
      Just because I know that Jesus is God does NOT mean I am a trinitarian.

      A person does NOT have to believe that Jesus is God in order to be BORN AGAIN.
      However, in certain circumstances it is blaspheme for a person to deny that Jesus is God.
      What you are teaching here on your site is blaspheme against Jesus Christ.
      What you are doing borders on blaspheme of the Holy Spirit.

      I am praying for you.

      Jesus desires that I share with you that when a person becomes BORN AGAIN that they soon learn that Jesus is indeed God Almighty.
      A person who becomes BORN AGAIN has no excuse in denying that Jesus is God, because Jesus will reveal to that person that He is God.
      Jesus shows me that He is God, because I am BORN AGAIN.

      I offer you a link I created which explains what it means to be BORN AGAIN, and HOW to become BORN AGAIN.
      I offer you this, because you cannot possibly be BORN AGAIN teaching what you teach about Jesus not being God Almighty.

      Again, I am praying for you to become BORN AGAIN.

      I don't know who has led you down the path you are on, but I know you are headed in the wrong direction.

      Did you go to see my PROPHECY CHART?
      You need to study it and see for yourself that the scriptures do say that Jesus is God.

      Isaiah 9:6 and John 1:1,3,10,14 are enough evidence to show that Jesus is God.
      However, I have offered you 267 verses that show Jesus is God Almighty!

      In any case, here is that link I mentioned:

    2. The prayers of a righteous man are powerful and effective. To pray to a false god means only that nothing will be heard by the real God. Asking anything in the Son of Gods name will mean nothing unless you know who God is and who His Son is. Making them one using all the scripture text that the Trinitarians use make you just as wrong as the Trinitarians. Pentecostal oneness Modalism doctrine was not reviled to you by God. No one comes to God except they know his son, wise men seek him.

      Delete
  3. The scriptures under my blog title are enough to prove that Yahweh is the one and only God of Israel, and Yahshua is Yahweh's son - not Yahweh "God."

    YAHWEH said: “I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another" (Isaiah 42:8) “I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God." (Isaiah 44:6) "I am Yahweh, and there is no one else. Besides me, there is no other God. There is no one besides me. I am Yahweh, and there is no one else." (Isaiah 45:5-6) /// YAHSHUA said: "This is eternal life, that they should know you, the ONE (mono) true God, and him whom you sent, Yahshua Messiah." (John 17:3)

    John 17:3 should be more than enough evidence for you - as they are Yahshua's own words. Yahshua clearly addresses three important issues in this verse. #1. Understanding that Yahweh is the one and only God of Israel. #2. That he, Yahshua, is the Messiah "sent" by Yahweh. #3. That our "eternal lives" depend on understanding clearly #1 & #2.

    Unfortunately, your extensive research into scripture to try and prove what you believe Jesus personally told you regarding his divinity falls short. You are simply reading into scripture what you have decided to believe.

    I have given links in the prologue and also in the side column to books and resource sites that can refute, without exception, every claim you make about the scriptures you site.

    I appreciate you praying for me and I'll return the same to you.

    Blessings
