I am a Christian in union with Christ who is in union with our heavenly Father AlmightyGod. As a Christian, I have noticed that there are a lot of false teachings in modern Christendom. One of the most detrimental, if it is really possible to say that one false teaching is more damaging than another, is the so-called Holy Trinity. I am making this public declaration in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord to the credit of God Almighty our heavenly Father for there is not one thing of the tiniest measure I am able to do on my own. So if you find what is written and compiled here to be a help to you thank God Almighty and let the praise and the glory and love be to his holy name forever, amen.
I will be referencing a couple of different English translations of the Bible: the (KJV) originated in 1611 as the second cannon of the Church of England and is used widely in modern Christendom today; the (NASB) New American Standard Bible which is a modern version done in a KJV format, is also widely used; the (NWT) first published in two books in the 1950’s with the modern version completed in 1984, the work of the watchtower society and the primary cannon of the Jehovah Witnesses.
I do not intend to try to restate what is already clearly expressed in God Almighty’s own word about the nature of himself his son and his holy spirit. Rather we will be operating under a few primary premises. One: the Bible in its entirety is Gods holy word. Two: God’s word is true; not one falsity exists. The conclusion to be drawn is that if every word is true, all words must be in agreement in what they are saying. Essentially the Bible is its own best interpreter and aid for understanding itself. So do you want the Truth? Let’s see what it really says.
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
The Incomparable Christ
14(AI)in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
16For (AM)by Him all things were created, (AN)both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether(AO)thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–(AP)all things have been created through Him and for Him.
17He (AQ) is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
21And although you were (BB) formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds,
10 in order to walk worthily of Jehovah to the end of fully pleasing [him] as YOU go on bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the accurate knowledge of God, 11 being made powerful with all power to the extent of his glorious might so as to endure fully and be long-suffering with joy, 12 thanking the Father who rendered YOU suitable for YOUR participation in the inheritance of the holy ones in the light.
13 He delivered us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, 14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 because by means of him all [other] things were created in the heavens and upon the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, no matter whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All [other] things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all [other] things and by means of him all [other] things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that he might become the one who is first in all things; 19 because [God] saw good for all fullness to dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile again to himself all [other] things by making peace through the blood [he shed] on the torture stake, no matter whether they are the things upon the earth or the things in the heavens.
21 Indeed, YOU who were once alienated and enemies because YOUR minds were on the works that were wicked
11and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is (Y)Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
5 Keep this mental attitude in YOU that was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although he was existing in God’s form, gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God. 7 No, but he emptied himself and took a slave’s form and came to be in the likeness of men. 8 More than that, when he found himself in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient as far as death, yes, death on a torture stake. 9 For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
12 Consequently, my beloved ones, in the way that YOU have always obeyed, not during my presence only, but now much more readily during my absence, keep working out YOUR own salvation with fear and trembling;
9And having been made (Y)perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation,
5 So too the Christ did not glorify himself by becoming a high priest, but [was glorified by him] who spoke with reference to him: “You are my son; I, today, I have become your father.” 6 Just as he says also in another place: “You are a priest forever according to the manner of Mel·chiz´e·dek.”
7 In the days of his flesh [Christ] offered up supplications and also petitions to the One who was able to save him out of death, with strong outcries and tears, and he was favorably heard for his godly fear. 8 Although he was a Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered; 9 and after he had been made perfect he became responsible for everlasting salvation to all those obeying him, 10 because he has been specifically called by God a high priest according to the manner of Mel·chiz´e·dek.
1 Corinthians 15:20-28
21For since (AF)by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22For (AG)as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
25For He must reign (AN)until He has put all His enemies under His feet.
26The last enemy that will be (AO)abolished is death.
20 However, now Christ has been raised up from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep [in death]. 21 For since death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also through a man. 22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each one in his own rank: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who belong to the Christ during his presence. 24 Next, the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until [God] has put all enemies under his feet. 26 As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. 27 For [God] “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that it is with the exception of the one who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.
17Jesus said to her: “Stop clinging to me. For I have not yet ascended to the Father. But be on your way to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and YOUR Father and to my God and YOUR God.’”
There’s also DE 6:4 JOHN 4:23-24 MAL 2:10 MR 10:18 RO 3:29-30REV 3:14 ISA 44:6 DA 4:35 JOHN 8:42 12:49 14:28 5:19 MT 20:23 1COL 1:9-10 And these are just a few there are a whole lot more that say things in a similar way.
Now as for the Holy Spirit Gods Active force here are just a few of scriptures talking about it.
Acts 2:2-4 and 29-36
2And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled (B)the whole house where they were sitting.
3And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them.
34“For it was not David who ascended into heaven, but he himself says:
‘(AT)THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD,
“SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND,
35UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET.”‘
2 and suddenly there occurred from heaven a noise just like that of a rushing stiff breeze, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting. 3 And tongues as if of fire became visible to them and were distributed about, and one sat upon each one of them, 4 and they all became filled with holy spirit and started to speak with different tongues, just as the spirit was granting them to make utterance.
29 “Men, brothers, it is allowable to speak with freeness of speech to YOU concerning the family head David, that he both deceased and was buried and his tomb is among us to this day. 30 Therefore, because he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath that he would seat one from the fruitage of his loins upon his throne, 31 he saw beforehand and spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was he forsaken in Ha´des nor did his flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus God resurrected, of which fact we are all witnesses.33 Therefore because he was exalted to the right hand of God and received the promised holy spirit from the Father, he has poured out this which YOU see and hear. 34 Actually David did not ascend to the heavens, but he himself says, ‘Jehovah said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, 35 until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.”’ 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for a certainty that God made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom YOU impaled.”
2 Corinthians 1:19-22
19 For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among YOU through us, that is, through me and Sil·va´nus and Timothy, did not become Yes and yet No, but Yes has become Yes in his case. 20 For no matter how many the promises of God are, they have become Yes by means of him. Therefore also through him is the “Amen” [said] to God for glory through us. 21 But he who guarantees that YOU and we belong to Christ and he who has anointed us is God. 22 He has also put his seal upon us and has given us the token of what is to come, that is, the spirit, in our hearts.
2“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for (B)I go to prepare a place for you.
4“And you know the way where I am going.”
5(E)Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?”
Oneness with the Father
8(L)Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.”
9Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? (M)He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
14“If you ask Me anything (V)in My name, I will do it.
15“(W)If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
Role of the Spirit
16“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another (X)Helper, that He may be with you forever;
18“I will not leave you as orphans; (AA)I will come to you.
1 “Do not let YOUR hearts be troubled. Exercise faith in God, exercise faith also in me. 2 In the house of my Father there are many abodes. Otherwise, I would have told YOU, because I am going my way to prepare a place for YOU. 3 Also, if I go my way and prepare a place for YOU, I am coming again and will receive YOU home to myself, that where I am YOU also may be. 4 And where I am going YOU know the way.”
5 Thomas said to him: “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How do we know the way?”
6 Jesus said to him: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If YOU men had known me, YOU would have known my Father also; from this moment on YOU know him and have seen him.”
8 Philip said to him: “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.”
9 Jesus said to him: “Have I been with YOU men so long a time, and yet, Philip, you have not come to know me? He that has seen me has seen the Father [also]. How is it you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in union with the Father and the Father is in union with me? The things I say to YOU men I do not speak of my own originality; but the Father who remains in union with me is doing his works. 11 Believe me that I am in union with the Father and the Father is in union with me; otherwise, believe on account of the works themselves. 12 Most truly I say to YOU, He that exercises faith in me, that one also will do the works that I do; and he will do works greater than these, because I am going my way to the Father. 13 Also, whatever it is that YOU ask in my name, I will do this, in order that the Father may be glorified in connection with the Son. 14 If YOU ask anything in my name, I will do it.
15 “If YOU love me, YOU will observe my commandments; 16 and I will request the Father and he will give YOU another helper to be with YOU forever, 17 the spirit of the truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither beholds it nor knows it. YOU know it, because it remains with YOU and is in YOU. 18 I shall not leave YOUbereaved. I am coming to YOU. 19 A little longer and the world will behold me no more, but YOU will behold me, because I live and YOU will live. 20 In that day YOU will know that I am in union with my Father and YOU are in union with me and I am in union with YOU. 21 He that has my commandments and observes them, that one is he who loves me. In turn he that loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will plainly show myself to him.”
Once more, these are just a few examples; there are many more. So far we have touched on scriptural references. There is however another factor that has been a major cause of the modern doctrine of the holy trinity surviving even though it contradicts what is written in the Bible. The answer may be found in one small section with one very small mistranslation that occurs in the KJV and all major translations based on it. In my discussion of this, I will be pulling from a wonderful book “Truth in Translation Accuracy and Bias in English Translations of the New Testament” by Jason David BeDuhn. I would recommend it for anyone seeking a truly unbiased review of the most commonly used of modern translations. If you haven’t guessed this all centers around John 1:1-2 and the way it is translated incorrectly in the KJV and in similar manners. In KJV based Bibles like the NASB, NAB, NRSV, NIV, AB, TEV,LB it says “in the beginning was the word ,and the word was with God, and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. (and the word was god )” is what leads you to believe the Word Aka “Jesus” is God . This is not the case. Not at all. It would contradict all the other parts of the bible that tell us Jesus is the son of God and God made Jesus etc.
So since as we said the entire bible is God’s word and it is wholly true then what has happened? The answer is in the Greek—the Original New Testament Language. Kai theos en ho logos. Word for word “and god was the word”. But what does this mean?
Well what do other parts of the bible say? Philippians:2-6 as we have seen says Jesus was in the form of god which is without even looking at that verse is how John1:1-2 if more actually translated would be ((and the word was a god)) A not THE in the form of god not the GOD almighty but his son made in his form in his exact Image. This friend is the undeniable truth. I will leave you with this question: if you don’t know who God is how can you serve Him?
