Deu 6:4 ,” Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD ”

Monotheism Defined The belief in only one God is called monotheism, which comes from two Greek words: monos , meaning alone, single, one; and theos , meaning God Among the major religions of the world, three are monotheistic: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. True monotheists believe in one God, but further believes that the fulness of the Godhead is manifested in Jesus Christ. They believe that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are manifestations, modes, offices, or relationships that the one God has displayed to man. Church historians have used the terms modalism and modalistic monarchianism to describe this view as held by such early church leaders as Noetus, Praxeas, and Sabellius.

The Old Testament Testifies That Jesus is God "Before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour" (Isaiah 43:10-11). "Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any" (Isaiah 44:8 ). "Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me" (Isaiah 46:9). "O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth" (Isaiah 37:16).

Modalistic Monarchianism Modalistic monarchianism is the term most often used by church historians to refer to the Oneness view. Encyclopedia Britannica defines it as follows: "Modalistic monarchianism, conceiving that the whole fulness of the Godhead dwelt in Christ, took exception to the 'subordination' of some church writers, and maintained that the names Father and Son were only different designations of the same subject, the one God, who 'with reference to the relations in which He had previously stood to the world is called the Father, but in reference to His appearance in humanity is called the Son.'"

Tertullian - The Father Of Christian Trinitarianism Tertullian

PowerPoint Presentation:

Arius Athanatius Council of Nicea - 325 AD

PowerPoint Presentation:

Definition of the doctrine of the Trinity Trinitarianism is the belief that there are three persons in one God. This has been stated in various ways, such as "one God in three Persons" and "three persons in one substance." It holds that in God are three distinctions of essence, not just of activity. The names given to these three persons are God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost (or Holy Spirit).

PowerPoint Presentation:

There are three persons in one God. That is, there are three essential distinctions in God's nature. God is the Holy Trinity. There is one God with no essential divisions in His nature. He is not a plurality of persons, but He does have a plurality of manifestations, roles, titles, attributes, or relationships to man. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

Father, Son, and Holy Holy Ghost are the three persons in the Godhead. They are distinct persons, and they are co-equal, co-eternal and of co-essence. However, God the Father is the head of the Trinity in some sense, and the Son and Spirit proceed from Him in some sense. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are different designations for the one God. God is the Father. God is the Holy Spirit. The Son is God manifest in flesh. The term Son always refers to the Incarnation, and never to deity apart from humanity. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

Jesus Christ is the incarnation of God the Son . Jesus is not the Father or the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Son of God . He is the incarnation of the fulness of God. In His deity, Jesus is the Father and the Holy Spirit. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Son is eternal. God the Son has existed from all eternity. The Son is eternally begotten by the Father. The Son is begotten, not eternal. The Son of God existed from all eternity only as a plan in the mind of God. The Son of God came into actual existence at the Incarnation, at which time the Son was conceived (begotten) by the Spirit of God. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Word of John 1 (the Logos) is the second person in the Godhead, namely God the Son. The Word of John 1 (the Logos) is not a separate person, but is the thought, plan, activity, or expression of God. The Word was expressed in flesh as the Son of God. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

Jesus is the human name given to God the Son as manifested in flesh. Jesus (meaning Jehovah-Savior) is the revealed name of God in the New Testament. Jesus is the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

Water baptism is correctly administered by saying "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." Water baptism is correctly administered by saying "in the name of Jesus." The name of Jesus is usually accompanied with the titles of Lord, Christ, or both. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

We will see the Trinity or the Triune God in heaven. (Many trinitarians say we will see three bodies, which is outright tritheism. Others leave open the possibility that we will see only one Spirit being with one body. Most trinitarians do not know what they believe about this, and some frankly admit they do not know. We will see Jesus Christ in heaven. He is the One on the throne and the only God we will ever see. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Godhead is a mystery. We must accept by faith the mystery of the Trinity despite its apparent contradictions. The Godhead is no mystery, especially to the church. We cannot understand everything there is to know about God, but the Bible clearly teaches that God is one in number and that Jesus Christ is the one God manifest in flesh. Trinitarianism Oneness

PowerPoint Presentation:

Evaluation of Trinitarianism “We believe that trinitarianism is not a biblical doctrine and that it contradicts the Bible in many ways. The Scriptures do not teach a trinity of persons. The doctrine of the trinity uses terminology not used in Scripture. It teaches and emphasizes plurality in the Godhead while the Bible emphasizes the oneness of God. It detracts from the fulness of Jesus Christ's deity. It contradicts many specific verses of Scripture. It is not logical. No one can understand or explain it rationally, not even those who advocate it. In short, trinitarianism is a doctrine that does not belong to Christianity.”
