There Is Only One God
Notes From: The Foundation of Truth By Bishop Lonnie Green PH.D., D.D., LL.D.
One True God:
are over fifty passages of scripture that teach that God is one and that there is
no other. No other truth of scripture receives more prominence than that of the
Oneness of God.
6:4 “Hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord.”
44:8 “Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not
2:5 “There is one God, and one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus.”
“Thou believest, that there is one God; thou
doest well: the devils
also believe, and tremble.”
multiplication of Gods is a contradiction; there can be but one Supreme Being:
one God. Such a Being cannot be multiplied, nor pluralized. There can be but one
ultimate all-inclusive God.
Oneness of God is the great truth and message of the Old Testament. The Jews
sought to stone Jesus because he laid claim to Deity; and said,” For a good
work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy and because that thou being a man,
makest thyself God.” The truth taught in the Old Testament is never
contradicted in the New Testament but rather fulfilled.
The Trinity Examined:
The word “Trinity” is not in the Bible. The doctrine called the Trinity was introduced by the Roman Catholic synod at the beginning of the third century at the Nicean Council in 325 A.D. The Athasasian Creed later made the Trinity a fundamental tenet. It kept company with other Roman Catholic tenets such as: Transubstantiation, Indulgences, Mariolatry, Infallibility of the Pope, Purgatory, etc. Unfortunately, when Protestants repuciated the above fallacies they held on to the error of the Trinity maintaining a vital link with the false and unscriptural creeds of the Roman Catholic church.
word “persons” when used regarding the Godhead does violence to the absolute
Oneness of God. Dividing God into three persons makes three Gods which is
Tri-theism reardless of how it may be argued otherwise. God is the “Three in
One”; not the “One in Three”. The doctrine of the Trinity leads to much
confusion and contradiction.
Elohim is a Hebrew word in the plural form translated “God” in our Bibles. Trinitarians will argue that this means a plurality of persons in the Godhead. To answer this we shall quote from Smiths Bible Dictionary: “The plural form of Elohim has given rise to much discussion. The fanciful idea, that it referred to the Trinity of Persons in the Godhead, hardly finds now a supporter among scholars. It is either what grammarians call the plural of majesty, or it denotes the fullness of divine strength, the sum of powers displayed by God.”
question might be asked;” Why did the Jews, knowing that Elohim was plural,
cling so tenaciously to the Oneness of God?”
Elohim is applied to Christ in the following Scriptures.
11:4,12,13 – Elohim was sold for
thirty pieces of silver.
14:5 – Elohim is coming back as
Elohim was pierced at
true significance of Elohim is a plurality of attributes and powers.
