God is One

To all those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I write this epistle unto you to strengthen you in the word of God. To those of you who are seeking after God, I encourage you to read this epistle, as it provides good doctrine concerning a foundational precept of the word of God: the precept that God is one LORD.

The Non-Scriptural Doctrine of the Trinity

In these last days, there have arisen many false prophets, and many are deceived thereby, even as the Lord Jesus said it would happen:

One of the most popular false doctrines taught by these false prophets and false teachers is the doctrine of the Trinity. This doctrine states that God is made up of three persons, called God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The word of God does not speak of any such doctrine and in fact states to the contrary, "there is but one God, the Father," as it is written:

In addition to this verse of Scripture and the many verses below, the phrases "Trinity", "God the Son", and "God the Holy Spirit", as well as many other Trinity-based phrases, do not appear even once in the entirety of the Holy Bible, King James Version.

This false doctrine is very dangerous, as it blinds people from the truth of the word of God and leads them to hold to other false doctrines as well, such as the teaching that baptism is supposed to be done by calling out the titles "Father", "Son", and "Holy Ghost", rather than by calling upon the name of Jesus Christ. This epistle contains numerous verses of Scripture about the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which name is Jesus Christ; also, this epistle contains teaching about water baptism as it set forth in the Bible.

Below are verses from the King James Version of the Holy Bible which plainly state that God is one; they also do not state that God is three:

Many people mistakenly believe that the above verses use the word "one" to refer to the unity of three "persons" of God; however this unfounded belief is clearly contradicted by the following verses (he that hath ears to hear, let him hear):

One God, One Mediator

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the one mediator between God and men, as can be clearly discerned from the following verses:

God is a Spirit, The Son of God is a Man

According to the Bible, God is a Spirit, and the Son of God, Jesus Christ, is a man:

The Bible also says that God is not a man, and that the Son of God is not a spirit:

God was in Christ

The Bible states that "God was in Christ", as it is written:

The Son of God said that his Father, who is a Spirit (John 4:24), was in him:

In the Son of God, Jesus Christ, "dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily":

Jesus spoke the following words:

The Son of God spoke this because his Father, the Almighty God, was in him.

The Godhead

There is a widespread deception concerning the meaning of the word "Godhead"; it is a popular belief that this word has something to do with the number three. However, this word simply means "divinity" (Strong's Concordance #G2320) and refers to God the Father. It is true that this word appears three times in Scripture; however, this word is never used in a context that would imply anything having to do with "three persons" of God. For convenience, the verses in which this word is found are listed below:

God the Father is the Holy Spirit

God is holy:

God is a Spirit:

God the Father, the only true God (John 17:3, 1 Corinthians 8:6), is the Holy Spirit:

The reason that God is called the Father is because he begat a Son, Jesus Christ, who obtained his name by inheritance (Hebrews 1:4); God caused His Son to be conceived in the womb of a virgin in Israel, whose name was Mary:

God was Manifest in the Flesh

According to the Scripture, which cannot be broken (John 10:35), God was manifest in the flesh:


John 1:14 is a widely misunderstood verse of the Holy Bible which people take to be a "proof-text" of the Trinity doctrine. However, people fail to understand the text within the parentheses in this verse: "and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,"; Jesus is the image of the invisible God:

This is why Jesus said, "he that hath seen me hath seen the Father":

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, spoke all that his Father commanded him to speak:

As it was prophesied of him:

This is why when someone despises the Son of God, they also despise his Father:

The Head of Christ is God

The Bible says that the head of Christ is God:

And that Christ is God's:

And that the Son has had all things put under his feet, except God, his Father:

Also, the Son of God was prophesied to be the righteous servant of God:

The Son of God said to his disciples that his Father is greater than him:

Because people do not understand that the head of Christ is God and that the God and Father of the Son of God is God the Father, otherwise plain verses of God's word become really complicated. A few of these verses follow:

Why the Son of God is Rightly Called God

Before the accusations come, I would like to make something very clear: I am not denying the deity of Jesus Christ. As it is written:

It is true that the Son of God is rightly called God in the Holy Bible:

Many Trinitarians twist verses such as Hebrews 1:8 in order to teach their doctrine; however, they overlook the next verse:

Does God have a God? No. He does not know any other God:

The reason that the Son of God is called God in verses such as Hebrews 1:8 and John 20:28 is because, as it was previously stated, God is in him:
