Simon Brown.

It is not my purpose to force you to agree or believe with what’s on my websites, but rather to share my research. As the record goes: I'm Just a soul whose intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood. I do not write to share my research because I desire to be rich, famous, or powerful, but because investigating, studying, enquiring exploring, analysing and scrutinising, helps me learn what I don’t know. I simply love seeking, searching and researching, to discover the truth that is so rare, and become full of joy, uncovering the truth of our great GOD, and His Son’s hidden treasures, which has since caused me to become trapped in GOD’s divine love, who cannot turn back. I am Simon Brown. Amen.

I Simon Brown am no longer a Trinitarian, but an independent researcher in no denomination.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5.
NOT GOD OR A TRINITY, but as St john has said: but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God? 1 John 5:5.
And as Jesus has said: ETERNAL LIFE is believing His Father GOD is the only ONE TRUE GOD alone. John 17:3. Which is the FIRST commandment one MUST believe. Mark 12:29.

Hezekiah prayed before Yahweh, and said, "Yahweh, the God of Israel, who sit [above] the cherubim, YOU ARE THE GOD, EVEN YOU ALONE, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15. World English Bible.
Job 23:13: BUT HE ALONE IS GOD, and who can oppose him? God does as he pleases. The HEBREW text actually says GOD IS :בְ֭אֶחָד ḇə-’e-ḥāḏ [UNIQUELY] ONE.

From 2019 I now no longer believe Jesus Pre-Existed His flesh, but was a MAN and the only Begotten SON of his one true GOD, just as He only ever said.
You can see why I now believe Jesus did not Pre-Exist His flesh in my new videos and revised articles on this blog. Seek and you will find said Jesus.
"No responsible NT scholar would claim that the doctrine of the Trinity was taught by Jesus, or preached by the earliest Christians, or consciously held by any writer in the NT" (A.T. Hanson, The Image of the Invisible God).


Dear friends, just to remind you, as I am a human being, I am capable of making mistakes. If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know. Thank you. Please note if your video or comment have been deleted, this was because hundreds of videos and thousands of comments were sadly removed from this blog by Goggle because of the new complicated You Tube polices.

T
he opening verses of the Gospel of John have proven to be, unfortunately, a veritable battleground and storm center of theological argument. Translators have often edited John to make him fit much later systems of theology. John had never heard of the “Trinity,” the mystifying proposition that God is one and yet three. Jesus knew nothing of that teaching. Jesus was a Jew and he publicly affirmed, as the greatest of all the commandments, the central, cardinal creed of his Jewish heritage. Every Jew was required to recite daily the immortal words of Deuteronomy 6:4: “Hear, Israel, the Lord your God is one Lord.” Jesus never departed one iota from that Jewish creed. Judaism has always had a unitarian creed (unitarian means that God is one Person only) and Jesus made that creed the basis of his own teaching. He repeated the words of Deuteronomy 6:4 in conversation with a colleague Jew who had asked him about the rock-foundation of true religion. You will find this interchange between Jesus and a theologian in Mark 12:28-34.
Since Jesus believed in the One Person who is God, as prescribed by the Hebrew Bible and affirmed in the New Testament, it would make sense that followers of Jesus would join him in confessing the creed which Jesus confessed.
It is a tragedy of our times that churchgoers have been taught a different creed. And they have been catechized to recite this different creed on pain of excommunication and various “anathemas.” The so-called Trinitarian creed which underlies, as a sort of constitution, the work of most Protestant churches proposes that God is Three-in-One. Church members have often not given this creed much attention. If anyone challenges it, they will tend to become defensive, not because they really know what it says or how it developed, but because the massive weight of tradition backs it.
Jesus delivered stern warnings to the churches of his day, the synagogues of Judaism, that tradition learned by heart can be a menace to real spirituality. Protestants ostensibly stand for the principle of private investigation and for Scripture as being the only binding power for the believer.
One of the most illuminating exercises a churchgoer can carry out is a personal search for the God of the Bible and a biblical definition of Jesus. It was not until the 4th century, at the council of Nicea, that a number of bishops convened and decided on the creed held by Roman Catholic and many Protestant churches to this day. That creed of Nicea declared that Jesus was “very God of very God,” begotten before all ages. In a very fierce postscript to the creed, the bishops “anathematized,” i.e. pronounced a sentence of damnation on anyone who did not agree to the formula of “orthodox” belief.
They seemed not too troubled that Jesus could not have signed that creed. Jesus was a unitarian, reciting the unitarian creed of Judaism. Jesus never made the claim to be God Himself, but always deferred to his Father as the One God of Israel and of all creation. Jesus’ confession ruled out any hint of God being Three in One. When uttering a solemn prayer towards the close of his ministry he referred to the essence of salvation as knowing “You, Father, the only One who is truly God, and Jesus Christ whom You commissioned.” (John 17:3)
Matthew and Luke provide crystal clear accounts of the origin of the Son of God. Luke and Matthew could not by any stretch of imagination have underwritten the creed hammered out at Nicea in 325 AD. Luke reports the words of Gabriel who announced the basis on which the title Son of God was to be applied to Jesus. It was “for that reason expressly (dio kai) that the holy one being begotten will be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35). For what reason? The miracle of new creation by which the One God fashioned and formed in Mary His own uniquely begotten Son. Matthew speaks with equally transparent words of the genesis  (Matt. 1:18) or origin of Jesus: “That which is begotten [fathered] in her will be from holy spirit” (Matt. 1:20). It is a creative act of God which brings into existence the Son of God, a unique human being without a human father.
The creed of Nicea had long lost the simplicity of the original faith. After centuries of futile argumentation, and borrowing heavily on alien philosophical language and categories to express themselves (Why was not the language of Scripture adequate?), the “fathers” of the church pushed back the origin of the Son into pre-historic times and thus fashioned an essentially non-human person, who did not originate in the womb of his mother as all real human beings do (Adam and Eve were necessary exceptions).
At the end of their official declaration the bishops at Nicea declared as “beyond the pale” and unfit for salvation any who would say that the Son did not exist before he came into existence. To be “right” one had to agree that the Son existed before he came into existence. What this means exactly, let every church member ponder deeply. There is everything to be gained by examining why we believe the things we believe. Do you think that the Son “existed before he came into existence”? Can you explain why you do or don’t? These are reasonable questions since the witness and confession of Matthew and Luke have declared with simplicity that the Son did not exist before he was brought into existence in the womb of a virgin. To beget is to “cause to come into existence.” Since the Son was begotten, it is impossible for him not to have a beginning of existence. Yet the creed said otherwise. It forced on an unsuspecting public the impossible notion that one can exist and still come into existence.
Overlooking the plain accounts of the origin of the Son in history, the churches made an appeal to the opening verses of John. They managed there to contradict the witness of Matthew and Luke and present the reader apparently with a Second Eternal Person alongside the Father — which of course makes two Gods. This fatal move was achieved by first putting, incorrectly, a capital letter on word (logos) making it look like a Second Person, Word. Having altered the meaning of “word,” the next move was to refer to the word not as “it,” but as “Him.” The Greek word logos had appeared in the Old Testament some 1500 times and never was “word” a person, but always an utterance, command, promise, decree, etc. This is also its meaning at the opening of John’s Gospel, where he draws a parallel between the Genesis creation through the word and the New Creation which occurred when God’s word, promise, design, intention and plan became a human being, Jesus Christ. There was no Son of God until he began to exist in the womb of Mary.
Happily there are some 50 translations of the Bible which reflect the original meaning of the text either by not capitalizing “word” as Word to turn it into a second divine Person, or by using the pronoun “it” for the word, rather than “Him.”
Others have creative, good paraphrases for “word” and suggest the Intelligent Design of God one day to produce a Son who would be the center of God’s immortality program.
If you had been reading the English Bibles which appeared before the King James version of 1611 you would have been introduced to God’s grand design, or word, His master-plan which later in history became the man Jesus Christ, Son of God.
We begin with the translation of William Tyndale, martyred for his efforts to get the Bible to the public.

“In the beginnynge was the worde, and the worde was with God, and the worde was god. The same was in the beginnynge with god. All thinges were made by it, and without it, was made nothinge that was made. In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the lyght of men, and the lyght shyneth in the darcknes but the darcknes comprehended it not” (William Tyndale, The New Testament, 1534).
"In the begynnynge was the worde, and the worde was with God, and God was the worde. The same was in the begynnynge with God. All thinges were made by the same, and without the same was made nothinge that was made. In him was the life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shyneth in the darknesse, and the darknesse comprehended it not" (Miles Coverdale, Biblia: The Byble, that is, the holy Scripture of the Olde and New Testament, faythfully translated into Englyshe, 1535).
"In the begynnynge was the worde, and the word was with God, and the worde was God. The same was in the begynnynge wyth God. All thynges were made by it and without it was made nothynge that was made. In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the lyght of men, and the lyght shyneth in the darknes, but the darknes comprehended it not" (Matthews’ Bible, The Byble, that is to saye, all the holy Scripture: in whych are contayned the olde and new Testamente, truly and purely translated into English, and nowe lately with greate industry and diligence recognised. London: John Daye and William Seres, 1537).
“In the begynnynge was the worde, and the worde was wyth God; and God was the worde. The same was in the begynnyng wyth God. All thinges were made by it, and wythout it, was made nothynge that was made. In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the lyght of men, and the lyght shyneth in darcknes, and the darcknes comprehended it not” (Great Bible, The Byble in Englyshe, that is to saye the Content of al the holy Scrypture, both of the olde, and newe Testament, London: Edward Whitchurche, 1539).
"In the begynnyng was the worde, and the word was with God, and God was the worde. The same was in the begynnyng with God. All thynges were made by it, and wythoute it was made nothynge that was made. In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the lyght of men, and the lyght shyneth in darkenes, and the darkenes comprehended it not" (Richard Taverner, The Epistles and Gospelles with a brief Postyl upon the same. London: Richard Bankes, 1540).
"In the beginning was the word, and the worde was with God, and that worde was God. The same was in the begynnyng with God. Althinges were made by it, and without it was made nothing that was made. In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkeness, and the darknes comprehended it not" (William Whittingham, The Newe Testament of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Conferred Diligently with the Greke, and Best Approved Translation, Geneva: Conrad Badius, 1557).
“In the beginning was the Worde, and the Worde was with God and that Worde was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by it, and without it was made nothing that was made. In it was lif, and the lif was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkenes, and the darkenes comprehended it not” (Geneva Bible, The Bible and Holy Scriptures conteyned in the Olde and Newe Testament, Geneva: Rouland Hall, 1560).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was that Word. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by it, and without it, was made nothing that was made. In it was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darknesse, and the darknesse comprehendeth it not” (Bishops’ Bible, The Holie Bible, London: Richard Jugge, 1568).
“In the beginning was that Word, and that Word was with God, and that Word was God. This same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by it, and without it was made nothing that was made. In it was life, and that life was the light of men. And that light shineth in the darknes, and the darknesse comprehended it not” (Lawrence Tomson, The New Testament of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Translated out of Greeke by Theod. Beza, London: Robert Barker, 1607).
“Before the Creation of the World, Reason did exist, for Reason was then in God; indeed was God himself, it not being possible for God to be without it. Reason, I say, did exist in God before the Creation of the World, every portion of which was created with the greatest Reason; nor can any thing be produc’d that has been made without it. In this Reason alone, formerly resided the perfect Knowledg of the way that leads to everlasting Life; which it was impossible for men to find out otherways than as enlighten’d by this knowledg, made in some measure partakers of it, and under the guidance of it, as it had been a most glorious Light preceding, and pointing out the way they were to follow. But this Light has since been brought down to men, has shin’d among ’em many Years, and continues to direct the Ignorant in the way to Life, tho’ most neglect the use of it, and chuse to wander on still in the darkness of their Ignorance” (John LeClerc, The Harmony of the Evangelists, London: Samuel Buckley, 1701).
“The word was in the beginning; and the word was with God, and the word was God; (the word was with God in the beginning). Through the same all things were made, and without the same was not made even one thing that was made. In the same was life, and that life was the light of human beings; and the light shineth on the darkness, yet the darkness apprehended it not” (Mortimer, Divers Parts of the Holy Scriptures Done into English, London: T. Piety, 1761).
“In the beginning was Wisdom, and Wisdom was with God, and Wisdom was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by it, and without it was nothing made. What was made, had life in it, and this life was the light of men; and this light shineth in darkness, and the darkness hindered it not” (Gilbert Wakefield, A Translation of the New Testament, London: Philanthropic Press, 1791).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This was in the beginning with God. All things were made by it, and without it not a single creature was made. In it was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shone in darkness; but the darkness admitted it not” (Alexander Campbell, The Sacred Writings of the Apostles and Evangelists of Jesus Christ, Commonly Styled the New Testament, Translated from the Original Greek, Buffaloe, Brooke County, VA: Alexander Campbell, 1826).
“In the beginning existed the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This was in the commencement with God. All things were formed by it, and without it not even one thing was made, which has existed. In it was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shone in darkness, and the darkness did not overpower it” (Rodolphus Dickinson, A New and Corrected Version of the New Testament; or, a Minute Revision, and Professed Translation of the Original Histories, Memoirs, Letters, Prophecies, and Other Productions of the Evangelists and Apostles, Boston: Lilly, Wait, Colman and Holden, 1833).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This was in the beginning with God. All things were made by it; and without it nothing was made that was made. In it was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shone in the darkness; and the darkness did not admit it” (David Barnard, The Holy Bible; Being the English Version of the Old and New Testaments, Made by Order of King James I, Carefully Revised and Amended, by Several Biblical Scholars. Mannsville, NY: D.S. Dean and Rhodes Barker, 1847).
“In the Beginning was the Logos, and the Logos was with God, and the Logos was God. This was in the Beginning with God. Through it every thing was done; and without it not even one thing was done, which has been done. In it was life; and the Life was the Light of Men. And the Light shone in the Darkness, and the Darkness apprehended it not” (Benjamin Wilson, The Emphatic Diaglott: Containing the Original Greek Text of What Is Commonly Styled the New Testament, New York: Fowler and Wells, 1864).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word. This was in the beginning with God. All things through it arose into being, and without it arose not even one thing which has arisen. In it is Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines on, in the Darkness; and the Darkness did not apprehend it” (Nathaniel S. Folsom, The Four Gospels: Translated from the Greek Text of Tischendorf, Boston: A. Williams, 1869).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was with God in the (first) beginning. All things were made through it, and without it was not any one thing made. What hath been made by means of it was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness perceived it not” (Samuel Sharpe, The Holy Bible, Being a Revision of the Authorised English Version, London: Williams and Norgate, 1898).
"In the beginning was Thought, and Thought was with God, and Thought was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Thought. In Thought was life; and that life was the light of men. There was the true light coming into the world which lights every man. It was in the world, and the world came into being through it, but the world did not recognise it" (Richard A. Armstrong, The Trinity and the Incarnation, Boston: American Unitarian Association, 1904).
“The Love Thought was the beginning. In the very beginning it was with the Father of Love and it was the Father of Love. All things were made by the Love Thought and without it was not anything made that ever was made. In it was Life and the Life was the Light of men. The Light shone in darkness and the darkness has never been able to overcome it, or even to comprehend it” (Dwight Goddard, The Good News of a Spiritual Realm, New York: Fleming H. Revell, 1916).
“In original being the Word, or GOD-Idea existed; and the GOD-Idea existed in at-one-ment with GOD; and the GOD-Idea was GOD-manifest. The same existed in original being, at-one with GOD. All things came into being in this GOD-conception, and apart from it came not anything into being that came into being. In the GOD-Idea Life, GOD, was manifest, and Life, GOD, was the Light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness; but the darkness comprehendeth it not” (Arthur E. Overbury, The People’s New Testament (New Covenant) Scriptural Writings Translated from the Meta-Physical Standpoint, Monrovia, CA: Arthur E. Overbury, 1925).
“In the beginning was the word, and the word was toward God, and God was the word. This was in the beginning toward God. All came into being through it, and apart from it not even one thing came into being which has come into being. In it was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light is appearing in the darkness, and the darkness grasped it not” (A.E. Knoch, The Sacred Scriptures: Concordant Literal New Testament, Canyon Country, CA: Concordant Publishing Concern, 1926).
“In the beginning of all things, when God first created heaven and earth, the Word, or living expression of the Father’s thought, already was in being; and the Word was with, nay, was comprised within the one Godhead, within the being that alone is God, and the Word was himself truly God. When, therefore, with the creation of the universe there was a beginning of time, this divine person already was, God with God [this part of the translation we think disturbs what was earlier well-expressed]. God in closest relation and intimate union with God. And inasmuch as from all eternity God the Word is the distinct utterance of the divine idea which is reflected exteriorly in created things, all things came into being through him, and without him there came into being nothing that has ever been brought about. In him with all perfection of causality, efficient and exemplar, was life; and this life, as imparting to men true intellectual activity, was light; and throughout the long ages that followed upon man’s fall, this light was shining in the darkness, emitting whatever there was of natural and supernatural illumination, and the darkness never altogether overcame the light” (Charles F. Blount, Half-Hours with S. John’s Gospel, London: Burns Oates and Washbourne, 1930).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was god [this is of interest in excluding a second coequal God]. When he was in the beginning with God all things were created through him; without him came no created thing into being. In him was life, and the life was the light of men; and the light shone on in the darkness, and the darkness overcame it not” (Charles Cutler Torrey, The Four Gospels: A New Translation, New York: Harper and Brothers, 1933).
“In the Beginning there existed the Divine Reason, and the Divine Reason was with God, and the Divine Reason was God. This Divine Reason at the Beginning was in closest relation with God. Through the Divine Reason all things came into being; and apart therefrom there was not brought into being even a single thing which has come to exist. In the Divine Reason there subsisted Life; and that Life was the spiritual Light of mankind. And the Light shone, and still shines, in the spiritual Darkness, and the Darkness has not overpowered it” (G.W. Wade, The Documents of the New Testament Translated and Historically Arranged with Critical Introductions, London: Thomas Murby, 1934).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God; and the Word was a god [this translation is incorrect]. This was with God in the beginning. Everything came into being through the Word, and without it nothing created sprang into existence. In it is life, and that life was the light of mankind. The light shines in the realm of darkness, but the darkness would have not of it” (Johannes Greber, The New Testament: A New Translation and Explanation Based on the Oldest Manuscripts, New York: John Felsberg, 1937).
“In the beginning was the everlasting Word, and the everlasting Word was with God, and of godlike nature was the everlasting Word. Hence it was in the beginning with God. By its activity all things came into being and naught that exists came apart from its activity” (Martin Dibelius, The Message of Jesus Christ, Translated by Frederick C. Grant, New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1939).
“In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God. And the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. Through its agency all things came to be, and apart from it hath not one thing come to be. What came to be in it was Life, and the Life was the light of men, and the light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness did not absorb it” (William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, Readings in St. John’s Gospel, London: Macmillan, 1939).
“The Energising Mind was in existence from the very beginning; the Energising Mind was in communion with God; the Energising Mind was divine. He was with God from all eternity. Everything was brought into existence through him, and apart from him no single entity came into being. He was the spring of life and his life was the Light for mankind. This Light shines in moral and spiritual darkness, and the darkness has never quenched it” (Freeman Wills Crofts, The Four Gospels in One Story, Written as a Modern Biography, London: Longmans, Green and Company, 1949).
“First there was the Thought, and the Thought was in God; the Thought was God. He was in God from the first. It was through him that everything came into being; not one thing came into being without him. As for that which has come into being in union with him, it was life, and that life was the Light of mankind. The Light is shining in the darkness and the darkness does not overpower it” (F.R. Hoare, A Translation from the Greek into Current English of the Gospel According to John, Arranged in its Conjectured Original Order, London: Burns Oates and Washbourne, 1949).
“At the beginning God expressed himself. That personal expression, that word, was with God and was God, and he existed with God from the beginning. All creation took place through him, and none took place without him. In him appeared life and this life was the light of mankind. The light still shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out” (J.B. Phillips, The New Testament in Modern English, New York: Macmillan, 1958).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a God. In the beginning This Word was with God. All was done through It, and without It not even one thing was done. In It was life, and the life was the light of men. And the Light shone in darkness, and darkness apprehended It not” (James L. Tomanek, The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Anointed. Pocatello, ID: 1958).
“When the world began, the Word was already there. The Word was with God, and the nature of the Word was the same as the nature of God. The Word was there in the beginning with God. It was through the agency of the Word that everything else came into being. Without the Word not one single thing came into being. As for the whole creation, the Word was the life principle in it, and that life was the light of men. The light continues to shine in the darkness, and the darkness has never extinguished it” (William Barclay, The New Testament: A New Translation. London: Collins, 1969).
“When time began, the Idea already was. The Idea was at home with God, and the Idea and God were one. This same Idea was at home with God when time began. Through him the universe was made, and apart from him not one thing came to be. In him was life, and the life was humanity’s light. And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness never quenched it” (Clarence Jordan, The Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John, New Win, AL: Association Press, 1970).
“At the very beginning of all things – the Word. God and the Word, God himself. At the beginning of all things, the Word and God. All things became what they are through the Word; without the Word nothing ever became anything. It was the Word that made everything alive; and it was this ‘being alive’ that has been the Light by which men have found their way. The Light is still shining in the Darkness; the Darkness has never put it out” (Alan T. Dale, New World: The Heart of the New Testament in Plain English, New York: Morehouse-Barlow, 1973).
“In the very beginning was the Word. God made all things, nothing has ever existed, or will ever exist, except it be made by God. Within the Word was life and this life became the Light for man. The Light shone, but man, in his ignorance, would not fully understand it” (Andrew Edington, The Word Made Fresh, Atlanta: John Knox Press, 1976).
“Before God did owt else e ad summat ter say. It wus is last werd. Ony it come first. An it summed up is ole attitude to evrythink. Now dis werd wus wid God. Fact it wus part’n parcil uv im.

“In the Beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God. So the Word was divine. It was in the Beginning with God. By it everything had being. And without it nothing had being. What had being by it was Life. And Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the Darkness. And the Darkness could not suppress it” (Hugh J. Schonfield, The Original New Testament, Edited and Translated from the Greek by the Jewish Historian of Christian Beginnings, San Francisco: Harper and Row, 1985).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word was in the beginning with God; all things were made through the Word, and without the Word was not anything made that was made. In the Word was life, and the life was the light of all. The light shines in the deepest night, and the night has not overcome it” (Inclusive-Language Lectionary Committee, An Inclusive-Language Lectionary, Atlanta: John Knox Press, 1986).
“In the beginning was the plan of Yahweh, and the plan was with Yahweh, and the plan was Yahweh’s. The same plan was in the beginning with Yahweh. All things were done according to it, and without it nothing was done, that was done. In this plan was life, and that life was the light to mankind. Now that light shines in the darkness, but the darkness does not take hold of it” (Yisrayl Hawkins, The Book of Yahweh: The Holy Scriptures, Abilene: House of Yahweh, 1987).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was toward God, and God was what the Word was. It was with God in the beginning. All things happened through it, and not one thing that has happened, happened without itWithin it there was Life, and the Life was the light of the world. And in the darkness the light is shining, and the darkness never got hold of it” (Andy Gaus, The Unvarnished New Testament, Grand Rapids: Phanes Press, 1991).
“In the beginning there was the divine word and wisdom. The divine word and wisdom was there with God, and it was what God wasIt was there with God, from the beginning. Everything came to be by means of it; nothing that exists came to be without its agencyIn it was life, and this life was the  light of humanity. Light was shining in darkness, and darkness did not master it” (Robert J. Miller, The Complete Gospels: Annotated Scholars Version, Sonoma, CA: Polebridge Press, 1992).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word was in the beginning with God; all things were made through the Word, and without the Word was not anything made that was made. In the Word was life, and the life was the light of all. The light shines in the deepest night, and the night has not overcome it” (Burton H. Throckmorton, Jr., The Gospels and the Letters of Paul: An Inclusive Language Edition, Cleveland: Pilgrim Press, 1992).
“In the beginning there was the divine word and wisdom. The divine word and wisdom was there with God, and it was what God was. It was there with God from the beginning. Everything came to be by means of it; nothing that exists came to be without its agency. In it was life, and this life was the light of humanity. Light was shining in darkness, and darkness did not master it” (Robert W. Funk, The Five Gospels: The Search for the Authentic Words of Jesus, New York: Macmillan, 1993).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word was with God in the beginning. All things were made by the Word, and apart from the Word nothing came into being. In the Word was life, and that life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not grasped it” (The New Testament of the Inclusive Language Bible. Notre Dame, IN: Cross Cultural Publications, 1994).
“In the beginning there was the Word; the Word was in God’s presence, and the Word was God. The Word was present to God from the beginning. Through the Word all things came into being, and apart from the Word nothing came into being that has come into being. In the Word was life, and that life was humanity’s light – a Light that shines in the darkness, a Light that the darkness has never overtaken” (The Inclusive New Testament, Brentwood, MD: Priests for Equality, 1994).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through the Word, and without the Word not one thing came into being. What has come into being in the Word was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the deepest night, and the night did not overcome it” (Victor Roland Gold, The New Testament and Psalms: An Inclusive Version, New York: Oxford University Press, 1995).
“In the beginning was the message, and the message was directed toward God, and ‘God’ the message was. The same one was directed toward God in the beginning. Through it, all things were done. And without it nothing was done. What has been done in it was life. And the life was the Light of humanity. And the light shone in the darkness. But the darkness did not understand it” (Frank Daniels, The Four Gospels: A Non-Ecclesiastical New Testament, 1996).
“In the beginning was the Word,
The Word that was with God,
God in the beginning was,
All things through God were made.
Without God was not any thing
Made that yet was made.
In God was life, and life was light,
And light all things displayed.
And the life that was the light
Shines in the darkness yet;
And darkness has not overcome
What the light has lit.”
(Jabez L. VanCleef, Gospels in Verse, Xlibris, 1999).
“We believe that the Word of God existed already in the beginning. And we believe that already in the beginning the Word of God was proximate, face to face, to God, and that the word of God was God. This Word of God was, as we have said, proximate to God, God’s way of speaking and acting. We believe that by means of the Word of God, all things came into being, and that apart from the Word of God not even one thing came into being. We believe that in the Word of God all Life was focused, and this Life was the Light of God for the illumination of all people. And the Light of God shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not diminished it” (Norman A. Beck, The New Testament: A New Translation and Redaction, Lima, OH: Fairway Press, 2001).
“In the beginning was the Word, (or, the Expression of (divine) Logic) and the Word was with (or, in communion with) God, and the Word was God (or, was as to His essence God). This One [here the translator reverts to a Second Person] was in the beginning with God. All (things) came to be through Him, and without Him not even one thing came to be which has come to be. In Him was life, and the life was the light of the people. And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not apprehend it” (Gary F. Zeolla, Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament of the Holy Bible, Darkness to Light Ministry, 2001).
“Nothing but God, and all that He means, existed in the beginning of absolutely everything. There was no possible way to separate God from His meaningfor only by His meaning can He be identified as GodGod’s intentions and purposes existed with Him from the very beginning of everything. God, through His intentions and purposes, created everything that has, or has had, existence in all of time. The essence and meaning of life, itself, was in God, and in all that He means and intends. Out of all that makes Him God, and gives Him meaning, came the gift of enlightenment to the human beings that He created. Into the lonely world, where God had never shown Himself to His creation, He projected Himself in human form, to be the light to humanity that no one could extinguish” (B.E. Junkins, A Fresh Parenthetical Version of the New Testament, New York: University Press of America, 2002).

The evidence of some fifty translations and paraphrases will show that it is an imposition on Scripture to insist that John wrote, “In the beginning was the Son of God, Jesus.” John was thinking of the Son as promised but not yet in existence. If the Son existed from eternity, that turns God into two and undermines the “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord,” and the first commandment. If the Son was in existence before he came into existence, this makes no logical sense and contradicts the accounts of Matthew and Luke. If the Son of God is pre-human he cannot be human. If the Son is God, he cannot die, since God cannot die. How very powerful are the words of the professor of NT at Bern;
²

“On their side, the Catholics could certainly prove, by means of Scripture, the distinction of the Son’s or the Christ's Personality from that of God the Father. But they landed themselves into a dillema so soon as they sought to prove, against the modalists, a correspondingly clear-cut biblical doctrine Concerning the agreement of the Dogma of the Divinity of the Father and of the Son with monotheism. For, according to the New Testament witnesses, in the teaching of Jesus and the Apostles, relative to the monotheism of the Old Testament and Judaism, there had been no element of change whatsoever. Mark 12:29 recorded the confirmation by Jesus himself, without any reservation whatsover, of the supreme monotheistic confession of faith of Israelite religion in its complete form.” (The Formation of Christian Dogma, Werner, p. 241

“It must be admitted by everyone who has the rudiments of an historical sense that the doctrine of the Trinity formed no part of the original message. St. Paul did not know it, and would have been unable to understand the meaning of the terms used in the theological formula on which the Church ultimately agreed” (Dr. Matthews, D.D., D. Litt., God in Christian Experience, p. 180).

“The Trinity is a contradiction, indeed, and not merely a verbal contradiction, but an incompatibility in the human ideas conveyed. We can scarcely make a nearer approach to an exact enunciation of it, than of saying that one thing is two things” (A.H. Newman, Sadler’s Gloria Patri, p. 39).
“The evolution of the Trinity: No responsible NT scholar would claim that the doctrine of the Trinity was taught by Jesus or preached by the earliest Christians or consciously held by any writer of the NT. It was in fact slowly worked out in the course of the first few centuries in an attempt to give an intelligible doctrine of God” (Dr. A.T. Hanson, Professor of Theology, University of Hull, The Image of the Invisible God, SCM Press, 1982).
“It might tend to moderation and in the end agreement, if we were industrious on all occasions to represent our own doctrine of the Trinity as wholly unintelligible” (Dr. Hey, Lectures in Divinity, 2, p. 253).
“The NT does not contain the developed doctrine of the Trinity. The Bible lacks the express declaration that the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are of an equal essence and therefore in an equal sense God himself. And the other express declaration is also lacking, that God is God thus and only thus, i.e., as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These two express declarations, which go beyond the witness of the Bible, are the twofold content of the church doctrine of the Trinity (Karl Barth, CD 1, 1 437)…That God and Christ belong together and that they are distinct, are equally stressed, with the precedence in every case due to God, the Father, who stands above Christ…There is no strict dogmatic assertion…All this underlines the point that primitive Christianity did not have an explicit doctrine of the Trinity such as was subsequently elaborated in the creeds of the early church” (Dr. J. Schneider, Prof. of Theology in Berlin, New International Dictionary of NT Theology,“The Trinity”). 
“But for Israel there was only one God and sole devotion to this One God was a paramount essential. To serve or follow other gods was a cardinal offense, emphasized particularly in Deut. and Isa. 40-55…The NT follows this tradition by taking for granted the established monotheism of Judaism…In the NT the monotheistic convictions [the all-essential Shema, he has just said] of Judaism are taken for granted…The first of all commandments according to Jesus is the shema, the affirmation of the oneness of God (Mark 12:29). Jewish opponents are not represented as criticizing Christianity for abandoning monotheism. The close association of Jesus with God seems to lead towards the seeing of monotheism in a different way [John 17:3 and Mark 12:28ff contra!]. The implications of this are not yet worked out within the NT” (Dr. James Barr, distinguished prof. at Vanderbilt, Harper Collins Bible Dictionary, p. 701, 865). 
“The explicit doctrine of the Trinity was thus formulated in the post-biblical period, although the early stages can be seen in the NT. Attempts to trace the Trinity origins still earlier to the OT cannot be supported by historical critical scholarship” and these attempts are readings back…The formal doctrine of the Trinity as defined in councils of the 4th and 5th centuries is not to be found in the NT (Thomas Longstaff, Colby College, Maine, Harper Collins, p. 1179).
“Because the Trinity is such an important part of later Christian doctrine, it is striking that the term does not appear in the NT. Likewise the developed concept of three coequal partners in the Godhead found in LATER creedal formulations cannot be clearly detected within the confines of the canon” (Daniel Showalter, Prof of Religion, Carthage College, WI, Oxford Companion to the Bible, “Trinity,” 1993, p. 782).

IS JESUS GOD?


IS JESUS GOD?

Quick Facts:

Now, I don’t know about you, I only believe what Jesus and His prophets and disciples taught. 

In fact, we are in trouble if we do not believe what Jesus taught as He said in John 3:36
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. John 6:47.

Notice we MUST believe Jesus is the only Son of God. John 3:18. 
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:18 

However MOST believe Jesus is GOD, or THREE called the TRINITY, so how will they be SAVED?  

MOST believe Jesus is GOD, or THREE called the TRINITY, so how will they be SAVED?

David Pawson teaches the Trinity is Biblical.

False teachings by David Pawson on the Trinity.

The scriptures are the Biblical facts, and therefore teach we MUST believe Jesus is the only Son of God. John 3:18.

Notice there is NOTHING in the whole Bible saying we MUST believe Jesus is GOD.

As there are NO such teachings saying one MUST believe Jesus is GOD, or that GOD is THREE persons, or GOD and His SON are THREE called the TRINITY, which is clear proof alone that most have been deceived and believe what is not taught anywhere in the Bible.

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31,32.

Jesus made this very clear that we must believe and follow His teachings.

And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. John 10:38.

So Jesus would have made this very clear that we must believe He is GOD, that is if He was GOD, and yet He NEVER, EVER, said or made such a claim.

John said: Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 1 John 1:9.

So did Jesus say I AM GOD?

The simple answer is NO.

The only people who say and teach Jesus is GOD, are people who have been deceived, and teach what Jesus did not say and teach.

So who did Jesus say He was?

The simple answer is in John 10:36:
do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

Notice in John 10:33 how the Jews wrongly accused Jesus for claiming to be GOD: The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”

Then just a few verses later notice how Jesus did NOT say, yes you are correct, I AM GOD, but notice instead how Jesus RECTIFIED the Jews by saying:  ‘I am the Son of God’?


So who did Jesus say He was?

Answer:
 ‘I am the Son of God’?
John 10:33.

As I said: I only believe what Jesus and His prophets and disciples taught. 
-------------------------------------------------

FULL ARTICLE HERE:

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: Deuteronomy 6:4.

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12:29.
---------------------------------------
There is a ‘massively sad confusion’ in the Christian world, with Christians not understanding the truth of the divinity of Jesus Christ, the SON of God. Literally.

I was one who believed in the trinity. Then after seeking, as Jesus said, SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND, I believe I have now found.

Here is my own research, which I pray will help to clear up this massive confusion, which many will still refuse to believe. 
Before reading my research, please pray first, and ask God to help you know the truth. Keeping an open heart and mind.

This is why Trinitarians say the trinity is a mystery, because it is simply not true, which is why they cannot understand their own faith.

Once we know the truth of Jesus divinity, the Bible is no longer a mystery, and our minds are no longer confused, and the Bible makes complete sense, and there are no longer any Bible contradictions, and we are ‘truly’ set FREE.

Follow me Simon Brown and see the truth of the true SON of God, and know and understand the ONLY ONE ‘true’ father GOD .
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I now believe GOD is ONE GOD alone,
and that Jesus is NOT THE ONE TRUE GOD, 
or the same person as GOD the father, 
or that Jesus Pre-Existed His flesh, but was a MAN and the only Begotten SON of his one true GOD,
 just as He only ever said.

I Simon Brown have swallowed my pride and have repented, as I was wrong.

I am now ‘changed’ and confident, Jesus made it very clear in one statement that there is only ‘ONE' true GOD, when He said: And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3.

Notice how Jesus very clearly ‘excludes Himself’ from being THE GOD, by saying:  the only true God, and Jesus Christ.

In this one statement in John 17:3, from the very lips of Jesus, He confirms His GOD the Father is THE ONLY TRUE GOD.
In other words His father GOD is the only person who has always existed  and there is NONE other like Him, but Him, and only Him.

And then below in John 20:31 Jesus again confirms He, Jesus is the Son of God and says nothing about being the GOD Himself or the same person as GOD the Father.

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. John 20:31.

We then have St Paul confirming with Jesus in 1 Corinthians 8:6, below by saying: there is but one God, the Father, and one Lord Jesus Christ. 
Notice St Paul also clearly reveals and confirms with Jesus by saying, GOD the Father is ONE, not 2 or 3, and Jesus is ONE, not 2 or 3, as the doctrine of trinity falsely teaches.

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. 1 Corinthians 8:6. King James Bible.

We then have an explosive statement below by St John in 1 John 5:5, confirming what a person needs to believe to overcome the world and be saved, by St John making it very clear, we must believe Jesus is the SON of GOD, and nothing about believing in the trinity or that Jesus is the GOD, or the same person as the GOD.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?

1 John 5:5.

Notice how 1 John 5:5 continues to confirm with Jesus in John 17:3, and John 20:31, and St Paul in 1 Corinthians 8:6, confirming Jesus is the SON of GOD ONLY, and nothing about Jesus being the GOD and the same person as the ONLY GOD.

We now come to the greatest ‘commandment’ by Jesus clearly stating we must hear and understand: THE LORD GOD IS ONE.

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12:29.

Notice again, there is nothing in Mark 12:29, about the ONLY GOD being 2 or 3 persons, or 2 or 3 persons being ONE PERSON or GOD, or Jesus is the GOD, or the same person as the GOD.

And there is nothing in Mark 12:29, saying we must believe in the trinity, or Jesus is the GOD to be saved.

Many Trinitarians will say Jesus said: I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. 
John 8:24 King James Bible.

Trinitarians are correct as Jesus did say: if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins
Trinitarians also say, unless we believe Jesus is GOD, or a trinity, we are not and will not be saved.

   Follow me and I will show you how it is the opposite way around, and how the enemy has fooled millions and is twisting a simple teaching of Jesus into a great deception. See below The Trinitarians FALSE claim of John 8:24.

Please read: 

IS GOD ONE PERSON OR THREE?
Let us have a look?
King James Bible
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:5.
Notice how 1 Timothy 2:5, clearly separates the ONE GOD, with the ONE person who is the man Christ Jesus.
King James Bible
Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. Galatians 3:20.
Notice how Galatians 3:20, again makes it very clear, GOD IS ONE PERSON and NOT 2 or 3.
King James Bible
As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 1 Corinthians 8:4
Notice how 1 Corinthians 8:4, says: there is NONE OTHER GOD BUT ONE.
If Jesus was GOD, that would make TWO GODS side by side.
And as Jesus is now ‘side by side’ with His GOD, then Jesus cannot be that same GOD.

No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the (BOSOM) of the Father, he hath declared him. John 1:18.
Notice how John 1:18, says: Jesus the only begotten Son, is in the (BOSOM) of the Father.
Trinitarians believe John 1:18, proves that Jesus and GOD are the same person, which is impossible, because there would be two GODS side by side.

Jesus could not be God Himself, as this would contradict GOD and His Son’s own teachings when Jesus always said, there is ONLY ONE GOD, and He is the only ONE BEGOTTEN SON of GOD.

If Jesus was claiming to be GOD?
Then why didn’t Jesus simply say (i am who i am) as in Exodus 3:14.

But instead Jesus only said (i am) when all Jesus needed to say was (I AM WHO I AM) which would confirm He was GOD.

DID JESUS OR THE DISCIPLES TEACH THE TRINITY?

It is interesting to note, none of the disciples including Jesus Himself ever said anything about God being 3 in 1. Surly if the trinity doctrine was correct, the most important people who wrote the Bible and walked with Jesus would have known and taught this in the gospels more then once and many, many times.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT ABOUT 1 JOHN 5:7 WHICH PROVES THE TRINITY?

King James Bible
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

In fact the trinity is nowhere in the whole Bible except in 1 John 5:7, which is said to be forgery and is not found in the Greek manuscript, and apparently Trinitarian scholars admit the verse was not written by St John.

There we see something fishy going on with dishonest people, as who added this later, to fool people into believing in the trinity. And how many more verses have been changed, by bias dishonest people?

1 John 5:7. The GREATEST Trinitarian FORGERY In History.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Most are confused with what Jesus said,
I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE. John 10:30.

And believe this proves Jesus and the Father are ONE God.

I used to believe this saying of Jesus meant He and God are ONE God.
But then this contradicts Jesus own techings, many, many times throughout the Bible, when He said countless times, He is the SON of God and there is only ONE True God, meaning (A CREATED GOD).

Of course Jesus is true, in every way, but He clearly made this point so many times by saying: And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Notice in that verse, how Jesus said (the only true God) and then Himself at the end of His statment saying (and Jesus Christ)
He excluded Himself from  (the only true God) 

I believe when Jesus said: I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE. John 10:30.
Jesus did not mean ‘oneness in number’ or ONE GOD, but simply meant they are both in complete agreement, harmony and purpose, as a Father and Son.

I And The Father Are ONE, John 10:30, What Did Jesus Mean?

----------------------------------
DID JESUS ‘CORRECT’ THE JEWS WHEN THAY CLAIMED JESUS WAS CLAIMING TO BE A GOD?

I have been debating many Trinitarians on my, Is Jesus God? Video.
Thay seem to forget, I was a Trinitarian.

Here is my research and comment I returned.

Andrew said - If they really misunderstood his message, he could have corrected them.

Tim said - He NEVER...I repeat..NEVER corrected them...or ANYONE...who treated him as God.

Thay both have good and valid points. So it is important to reaserch this fact. 

And this fact is clearly still misunderstood by millions of Christians today.

Both Andrew and Tim clearly believe Jesus never ‘corrected the Jews’ when and after the Jews said - “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” John 10:33.

Let us NOT believe what we want to believe, but open our hearts and minds, and believe and understand and read what Jesus said from His own lips. Agreed?

Now, let us continue with what Jesus said, directly after John 10:33. There we will see and understand if Jesus 'corrected’ the Jews who said He claimed to be God, which will also answer the question, (WHY DID JESUS NOT CORRECT THE JEWS IF HE WAS NOT CLAIMING TO BE A GOD?)

JOHN 34 -36.
Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods” 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came and Scripture cannot be set aside 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? 

Now, we clearly see above, Jesus did in fact ‘CORRECT’ the Jews. 
Are you saying where?

Here is where Jesus CORRECTED the Jews.
“Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”  
35 If he called them ‘gods,’  John.

Jesus was referring to (Psalm 82:6) which says -
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. King James Bible.

Jesus was referring to (gods) as in the sense of Magistrates and Prophets and judges, appointed by the word of GOD.
Jesus WAS referring to (HIS DEITY)

Jesus was NOT claiming to be as GOD THE FATHER, (UNCREATED) But as (a God) like Magistrates and Prophets and judges, appointed by GOD.

But the Jews did not understand this, or did not believe Jesus as always. and also some were NOT interested in the truth.

Below Jesus confirmed, there were Jews who were not interested in the truth.
1“ Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” 6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.
 John 10:1 - 6.
This is why 25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.” John 10:25 – 30.

If we look at the last statement by Jesus, in John 36. There we see, Jesus confirms His DEITY, yet again, by saying, Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, I AM THE SON OF GOD.

Jesus never, ever claimed to be as GOD his Father (UNCREATED)
BUT always the SON of GOD His Father (BORN) BEGOTTEN from His Father.
Jesus always claimed to be in ‘complete agreement’ and in complete ‘harmony’ with His Father, which is why He said,
I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE.

And I hope you can now see Jesus DID in fact CORRECT the Jews regarding His DEITY.

You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the SON OF GOD’? John 10:36.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHY DOES 1 JOHN 5:20 SAY JESUS IS GOD.
I believe people are misunderstanding what St John is saying. Please see below.

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, (FATHER GOD) 
and we are in him that is true, (FATHER GOD) even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, (ONE-FATHER GOD) and eternal life.  I John 5:20.

Now if we read: John 17:3, we can see, St John is making the same statement as 1 John 5:20.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee (FATHER GOD) the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Please notice below it says the same thing as above, that Jesus: he hath declared him. (FATHER GOD) And this is what: I John 5:20 is also about.

No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

There is no contradiction here, all the verses are talking about St John, who is talking about Jesus Christ, who is declaring His Father God, who is the ONLY ONE TRUE GOD.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I now believe it is easy to understand, who God sent to die and save HUMANS. GOD sent His SON. GOD did not send Himself, but His ONE and only SON.

If GOD sent Himself, then GOD was lying, because GOD made it very clear, He sent His SON Jesus, NOT Himself. If Jesus IS GOD, then He was also lying because He told us 100's of times, He is GODS SON, and NOT GOD.

IF GOD split Himself into 3 GODS, then GOD would have told us He is THREE PERONS, but instead GOD told us countless times He is ONE PERSON, and the only ONE TRUE GOD ALONE, who created everything on His own alone, and that there is NO OTHRE GOD NEXT TO HIM, proving Jesus is NOT GOD, and that Jesus was not next to GOD before He was BORN from Mary. 

This is why GOD sent His ONE and ONLY BEGOTTEN SON to prove how much GOD loves humans, that He literally SACRIFICED His ONLY SON, who cannot be GOD, otherwise JESUS could NOT be GODS SON, if Jesus was GOD.

FACT.
GOD and Jesus cannot lie.
GOD and Jesus said there is only ONE GOD, and NOT 2 or 3 GODS, and ONLY ONE BEGOTTEN SON.

I now ask the Trinitarians.
PLEASE show me ONE verse in the whole Bible saying you must believe Jesus is GOD to be SAVED?

PLEASE show me ONE verse in the whole of the Bible saying you must believe in the TRINITY to be SAVED.

I will now show you ONE verse out of many showing you what YOU must BELIEVE to be SAVED.

And this is LIFE ETERNAL, that they might know thee the ONLY TRUE GOD, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3.

If you cannot find ONE SINGLE verse in the WHOLE of the Bible, saying you must believe in the TRINITY, or Jesus is GOD, then it is time to repent and believe what Jesus taught: this is LIFE ETERNAL, that they might know thee the ONLY TRUE GOD, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. AND BE SAVED. Amen.

HOW TO RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE.

Eternal life does NOT come by believing Jesus is GOD and Jesus is the Father. This is a GREAT deception by Satan.

Jesus said COUNTLESS times, I AM GODS SON. And His Father is ONE GOD, NOT 2 or 3.

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12:29.

Jesus said YOU must believe, He is GODS SON, and His Father is the only GOD, to be saved.

King James Bible
For many shall come in my name, saying, I AM CHRIST; and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:5.

King James Bible
For many shall come in my name, saying, I AM CHRIST; and shall deceive many. Mark 13:6.

King James Bible
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I AM HE, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. John 8:28

King James Bible
And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I AM CHRIST; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. Luke 21:8.

There are countless verses like above that simply demonstrate Jesus IS the SON, MESSIAH, and SAVIOUR.
Which all confirm with Jesus teaching in John 8:24, when He said: (i am He) meaning He is the SON, MESSIAH, and SAVIOUR.

There yet again, is NOTHING about believing in the man made TRINITY and Jesus is GOD.
Jesus teachers that He is and always was GODS SON, and never said He was GOD and the Father.

“I am” is the Greek idiom for “I am he,”  I am the one.
Did the blind man in 9:9 say “I am God”!!!!
“its me” is the meaning as everyone should know.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Satan, which deceiveth the WHOLE WORLD.


Satan comes only to steal, kill and destroy, he has planted many deadly traps and deceptions in the Christian world, to stop Christians receiving eternal life.

This is why Jesus said the road to heaven is narrow.
Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. Luke 13:24.

Did you notice that shocking statement by Jesus? Many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Jesus is talking about millions of Christians who believe they are saved, and will find they are not, because Satan has deceived them from the truth.

Never, ever depart from what Jesus said and taught.
Jesus never, ever said we MUST believe in a trinity or believe He is GOD to be saved.

Jesus said the opposite. 
Jesus said we must believe His Father is ONE God, NOT 2 or 3, or 3 are 1.

Jesus said countless times,
He is the SON of GOD ONLY, and GOD and His Father is GOD ONLY, which we must BELIVE ONLY, to have life eternal.


I AM GOD AND THERE IS NONE LIKE ME.

In John 17:3 Jesus said His Father is the only true GOD.
John 17:3.

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12:29.

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5. King James Bible

Did GOD say Jesus was GOD?
