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.

Eph 1:1 – “…apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God.” God are Jesus are separate people. “To God’s holy people… in the Lord Jesus Christ.” Notice how many times in this letter God and Jesus are both mentioned, but as separate, with God being superior and Jesus as inferior.

God the Father is Almighty – with no equal

God the Father is Almighty – with no equal

God the Father is Almighty, with no equal. He has always existed, and always will.

This truth blows the Trinity dogma out of the water, since the dogma asserts that the three Trinitarian beings “are co-equal and co-eternal.” Let’s prove this point scripturally now.

The Bible uses the term Almighty many times to describe Yahweh, the Creator, and Father of Jesus, beginning at Genesis 17:1: “When Abram was ninety-nine years old Yahweh appeared to him and said, ‘I am El Shaddai. Live in my presence, be perfect.'” (NJB) read more

Does this picture make sense? It is confusing and contradictory!

“Now this is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” (John 17:3)

The Athanasian Creed also says a person’s eternal life depends on certain acceptance of statements of belief about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit (Ghost). read more
