Is God a Trinity?

Question: Is God a Trinity?

Answer: We should not forget that there is only one God, and the only one God is the Father who is the Father of Christ and of His followers, and the God of Christ and His followers, then there is no God besides Him, nor there was formed before Him nor there will be after Him, and that there's no other God like Him. Therefore, God is not Trinity.

It's true and I agree that God is not a Trinity, but I am curious as to your belief or faith.. Who is Jesus Christ?

Haven't posted our explanation of it on my Christian blog (still finishing the articles), to us, the Father is "in" Jesus Christ, hence Jesus Christ being called both as the Son of God and as the Son of Man.

And then the Holy Spirit is the "Power of God", not an 'it' even because the Holy Spirit is still the Father Himself.

As we explain it, the Father has three offices. "The Father", as "Jesus Christ", and as the "Holy Spirit". It is like a man, who is "A Husband" to his wife, a "Father" to his children, and a "Manager" to his employees.

Hence, we don't believe in the Trinity, coz if we continue on, the Bible said that Jesus Christ will "surrender" His all to the Father, if that is so, then Jesus Christ can't be a "God" as the Doctrine of Trinity teaches, coz the Bible says that "God is everlasting to everlasting. The Alpha and the Omega. No beggining and no end."

anyway, i don't believe also on the Trinity. With regards to Christ, I am still preparing the blogposts.

As of now, I am focusing on the truth about the true God

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 He was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.

Hi. I think I like what you've got going on here. But I have some questions about your simple explanation/ response for 'Is GOD a Trinity?'

I'm not here to argue with you, but I'd like to show you why I disagree.

In verses like Gen 1:26 and Gen 3:22, who do you suppose GOD is talking to? You can easily look up the verses yourself, but GOD basically uses the term 'like one of us' and 'let us make'... This is of course right around creation. HE says, "Let us make man in our image..." Who could he possibly be talking to? Shall we assume that HE's talking to HIS angels? I don't believe I've ever seen in the Holy Bible that angels have power like GOD (they get their power from GOD, I know that). I'd like to know your thoughts on this.

Also, we know that in verses all over the Holy Bible, especially the New Testament, that Jesus refers to himself as the SON OF GOD and others refer to him as such. There is only ONE SON OF GOD. And Jesus often said that he and the Father are ONE, that when you look at Jesus, you look at the Father. And remember, we call him Immanuel.

Finally, we all know that GOD is Spirit and must be worshiped in spirit, as HE says HIMSELF in the Holy Bible (look it up). And there are many references to this: Holy Spirit, Spirit of GOD, Spirit of the Holy GOD, etc.

So these are three distinctive persons -- holy persons and wholly unique. There is no one like them anywhere. But what do they have in common?

THEY ARE ALL GOD.

GOD, the Father, GOD the Son (Christ Jesus) and GOD the Holy Spirit. So therefore, GOD is ONE, yet three very distinctive personalities.

So was Jesus praying to himself when he said 'Father'?

Or was GOD talking about HIMSELF when he said 'This is my beloved Son...'?

And was Jesus saying he would send himself when he told the disciples that he would 'send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit'?

Yes and no.

There is one godhead. But it is comprised of three people. You could say GOD 'spread' HIMSELF among two other people.

No one ever said the trinity concept meant that there were three GODs... it only means that GOD has placed Jesus the Christ beside HIM and 'works through' the Holy Spirit.

And yes, it is a concept... no need to believe it for your salvation to remain intact (I don't think). However, you cannot deny that Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit are both uniquely of GOD. GOD was first; HE then sent Jesus; and Jesus then sent the Great Comforter, the Holy Spirit (but the Spirit of GOD has always been...and to make it even more confusing, Jesus said he always been, since the before the beginning). And don't you find it strange that GOD and both Jesus the Christ call themselves the Alpha and the Omega (in Isaiah 48:12, GOD says, “Listen to Me, O Jacob, And Israel, My called: I am He, I am the First, I am also the Last"...)

GOD is indeed ONE.

And look at Isaih 48:16 (the section about Israel's salvation, the Light of the Gentiles, etc... this whole book is interesting... many chapters appear to have a communication of sorts between Jesus and GOD... check it out) -

“Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord GOD and His Spirit Have sent Me.”

I believe the 'Me' is Christ Jesus, if you look at the whole book of Isaiah in context.

If you disagree, pleas explain why.
