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.

Is Jesus Christ Almighty God? – Ephesians

Is Jesus Christ Almighty God? – Ephesians

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 Ephesians.

Ephesians
The Book of Ephesians provides some clues as to whether or not Jesus Christ is Almighty God

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.

Eph 1:2 – “…from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” read more

Trinitarians and the Bible – Do They Agree?

Trinitarians and the Bible – Do They Agree?

The Bible is the court of final arbitration, so if something is true it has to be in agreement with the Bible. Otherwise, it is false. So if Trinitarians want to provide evidence for the Trinity doctrine, their argument should be in agreement with the Bible. Likewise, if we believe the Trinity is false, our belief should be in agreement with the scriptures.

Can someone who believes in the Trinity have a relationship with God and Christ?

Can someone who believes in the Trinity have a relationship with God and Christ?

Relationship with GodCan someone who believes in the Trinity have a relationship with God and Christ?

The short answer, based on the Bible, is very possibly, they can possibly still have a relationship with God and Christ. Why? All human knowledge is partial, not total.

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
    How unsearchable his judgments,
    and his paths beyond tracing out!
    Who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has been his counselor?” (Rom 11:33-34 NIV) read more

Trinity Debate – Reply to a Trinitarian

Trinity Debate – Reply to a Trinitarian

The Trinity is not a Biblical beliefBelow is an excerpt from a debate with a Trinitarian on an online forum:

Trinitarian said…

“ONLY ONE DIVINE BEING who exists within himself eternally and simultaneously as three distinct Personal Self-Awarenesses, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit”

These type statements are pure fiction, as this premise has no Biblical support. Actually, there are three problems:​

  1. No Biblical proof
  2. Contradicts the Bible
  3. Makes no sense – eternal life depends on knowing God – John 17:3. Something that is nonsensical, like the Trinity God be known.

Trinitarian said…

“And it is true, since the Almighty IS Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Yet not three Almighties, but only ONE Almighty…and he has NO equal. There is none like our God. And our God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” read more

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 Bible says our eternal life depends on knowing the only true God the Father, and His Son, whom he sent, Jesus Christ. “Knowing” would have to include knowing who they are.

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
