750 YEARS IN THE MAKING OF THE TRINITY
I believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. There are many clear bible verses that teach about them. I do not believe they are all three God and there aren’t any clear bible verses that teach they are.
Following are some verses that are used to try to prove the trinity and why they don’t. If you didn’t see Part #1 you really should give it some thought. You can also see it on my blog page at http://www.clearbibleverses.com.
- Genesis 1:26, And God said, Let US make man in our image – Does ‘us’ mean a Trinity or a precise indicator that there are three in number in this passage? NO! No indication of a trinity. Could easily be 2 – 100 Angel’s or a million.
- Joh 10:29-30 ISV 29 What my Father has given me is more important than anything, and no one can snatch it from the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”
This means they are one in purpose and plan to save and keep people. Jesus and God want us to be one as they are one as stated in this verse, Joh 17:22 I have given them the honour which thou has given me, that they may be one as we are one . This scripture also means we are to be one in purpose and plan as Jesus and God are one. That doesn’t make us Gods![
- 1 John 5:7-8 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. (KJV)
The first line of this passage is not present in any manuscripts produced before the 16th century. All Bible scholars now recognize that this passage was inserted to improve the case for the doctrine of the Trinity, which is not clearly stated in the Bible outside of this added passage. Most translations of the Bible now omit the added passage or relegate it to a footnote. The King James version includes this passage because it was translated from late and unreliable Greek manuscripts.
- John 1 1-5
In the original Greek and Hebrew manuscripts there was no punctuation and every letter was in CAPS. Over the Centuries churches/translators had to decide what letters would be lower case. Early Bible translations such as Bishops (see translation below), Coverdale, Matthew and the Tyndale translations did not capitalize “word” in John 1 1-5 and they referred to the spirit as “it.” Meaning the word is the word of God not another person.
Translations after those started capitalizing Word and calling it He instead of it to support the idea that the word was God.
Joh 1:1-5 Bishops 1 In the begynnyng was the worde, & the worde was with God: and that worde was God. 2 The same was in the begynnyng with God. 3 All thynges were made by it: and without it, was made nothyng that was made. 4 In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the lyght of men, 5 And the lyght shyneth in darkenesse: and the darknesse comprehended it not.
