Jesus the Mediatior – Trinitarian Views

Jesus the Mediatior – Trinitarian Views

The Bible clearly says that Jesus Christ is the mediator between God and humans. But Trinitarians claim that Jesus is God. How do they explain this contradiction?

Jesus the Mediator
Jesus is the Mediator between God and man. Yet Trinitarians claim Jesus is God.

Trinitarians say: “Jesus MUST be God in order to be our mediator.”

This is the crux of their argument. Trinitarians change the meaning of mediator, since Jesus being the mediator between humans and God (1 Tim 2:5) destroys their Trinity idol. (2 Cor 10:3-4)

By definition, a mediator is neither of the two parties for whom he mediates. The foundation of their argument against the plain truth of 1 Tim 2:5 therefore rests on a bogus premise. Thus, their entire argument fails. read more

Why Jesus – Not God – Died For Our Sins

Why Jesus – Not God – Died For Our Sins

The Bible says God cannot die. Yet Trinitarians assert that Jesus must be God himself in order to die for the sins of mankind stands in stark contradiction to all scriptural evidence. It was Jesus, not God, that died.

Jesus, not God
It was Jesus – not God – who died for the sins of mankind

“Lord, are you not from everlasting? My God, my Holy One, you will never die. You, Lord, have appointed them to execute judgment; you, my Rock, have ordained them to punish.” (Hab 1:12)

From this scripture, we can see that it is impossible that Jesus could be the God who would die for the sins of mankind, since the prophecy of Habakkuk was written over 600 years prior to Jesus and clearly states that God will never die. read more

Titus – God and Jesus – Part of a Trinity?

Titus – God and Jesus – Part of a Trinity?

Are God and Jesus Part of a Trinity? Is Jesus God? Let’s take a quick look at the Bible book of Titus to find some clues to these answers.

Titus
What does the Book of Titus say about Jesus and God?

“Paul , a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ.” (Tit 1:1 NIV) If Jesus is God, why are God and Jesus are referred to separately?

“Grace and peace from God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Savior.” (Tit 1:4 NIV) God is named as Father – Jesus is separate and distinct from God.

“As we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of the great God and of our Savior Jesus Christ.” (Tit 2:13 NAB) God and Jesus are spoken of a separate and distinct yet again. read more

Who is the Ultimate Authority – God or Jesus?

Who is the Ultimate Authority – God or Jesus?

Not all Christians are in agreement about the roles of God and Jesus. Some say God is the ultimate authority. Some say they are equal. And some say Jesus is God. But what does the Bible say? Let’s examine some scriptures to find the answer.

Ultimate authority?
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me…” – by whom?

“I am not here on my own authority but he who sent me is true.” (Jn 7:28) Jesus plainly states he didn’t come on his own authority, but God sent him.

“I do not speak on my own authority.” (Jn 14:10) Jesus does not even speak on his own authority. read more

God and Jesus in 2 Thessalonians – Part of a Trinity?

God and Jesus in 2 Thessalonians – Part of a Trinity?

In the Bible book of 2 Thessalonians, the Apostle Paul speaks of both God and Jesus Christ. If Paul believed Jesus is God, we should be able to find evidence of this from his writings. But is this the case in 2 Thessalonians? Let’s examine some verses to find out.

2 Thessalonians
Paul speaks of both God and Jesus in 2 Thessalonians. But does he believe Jesus is God?

“To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thess 1:1)

In the very first verse, God is distinguished here as Father – something Jesus is never called in the New Testament.

“Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thess 1:2) read more

God and Jesus’ Relationship in 2 John

God and Jesus’ Relationship in 2 John

Today, we’re going to take a quick look at the relationship between God and Jesus in this short article about the Bible book of 2 John. Is there any indication that Jesus is God, or is equal to God? Are they the same person, or two separate and distinct individuals? Let’s find out.

“Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son.” (2 Jn 3) Obviously, they are separate and distinct, with Jesus identified, not as God the Son, but “the Father’s Son.” read more

God and Jesus in 1 Thessalonians

God and Jesus in 1 Thessalonians

In the Bible book of 1 Thessalonians, God and Jesus and spoken of as separate and distinct. Let’s examine this distinction in some of the verses in 1 Thessalonians.

1 Thessalonians
God and Jesus are spoken of as separate and distinct in 1 Thessalonians

“In God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thess 1:1) Here, God and Jesus are referred to as two separate and distinct individuals.

“Before our God and Father… inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thess 1:3) God, the Father, is one, and the Lord Jesus Christ is another.

“They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead – Jesus.” (1 Thess 1:9-10) These verses are very instructive. Notice God is called “the living and true God,” while Jesus is called “his Son,” “whom he” (God) “raised from the dead.” Jesus was dead, God was alive, but had the power to bring him back to life. read more

Is Jesus Christ God Almighty – Philippians

Is Jesus Christ God Almighty – Philippians

We continue our series about what is stated concerning Jesus in the various books of the New Testament. Today, we will examine the book of Philippians. Notice the distinctive relationship between God and Jesus throughout this book of Philippians, especially the superior role of God compared to Jesus.

Philippians
The superior role of God compared to Jesus is evident from the Bible book of Philippians

“To all God’s holy people in Christ Jesus at Philippi.” (Phil 1:1) God is always the one in control, and using Christ to gather his people.

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Phil 1:2) God and Jesus are separate and distinct. Holy Spirit, since it is not a person, does not give greetings. read more

Is the Holy Spirit a Person in John’s Gospel?

Is the Holy Spirit a Person in John’s Gospel?

Trinitarians focus on a few scriptures in which the holy spirit is personified, which when taken literally, make it appear to be an actual spirit person. Let’s examine the uses in John of the word spirit, wherever it means the holy spirit.

holy spirit person
Is the holy spirit a person in the Gospel of John?

“Then John gave this testimony: ‘I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him.'” (Jn 1:32 NIV)

The holy spirit is not personified, but “as a dove,” the figure of speech called simile, being used here, involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind. There is no indication of personhood being applied to the holy spirit. read more

Holy Spirit – Greetings in the NT Letters?

Holy Spirit – Greetings in the NT Letters?

In the New Testament letters, greetings are given from above. We know that God the Father and Jesus Christ are both persons, so we should expect to see their greetings. But what about the Holy Spirit? If the Holy Spirit is a person, we should expect to see greetings from the Holy Spirit as well. But is this the case? Let’s examine these greetings in the letters to find out.

Holy Spirit greetings?
Where are the greetings from the Holy Spirit in the New Testament?

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Rom 1:7)

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Cor 1:3) read more
