One God Trinitarian
(From Wikipedia and modified for our beliefs)
Christianity, having emerged from Judaism, is a monotheistic religion. Never in the New Testament does the Trinitarian concept become a tritheism” (three Gods) nor even two. God is one, and that God is a single being is strongly declared in the Bible:
- The Shema of the Hebrew Scriptures: “Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God, the LORD is one.”[Deut 6:4]
- The first of the Ten Commandments: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”[5:7]
- And “Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel and his redeemer the LORD of hosts: I am the first and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”[Isa 44:6]
- In the New Testament: “The LORD our God is one.”[Mk 12:29]
- Our the Trinitarian view, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit is one and the same. The central and crucial affirmation of our Christian faith is that there is one Holy
- Thought, God manifestation in the Cosmic Christ the Thought of GOD Creator, to which there is access only because of God manifestation in the Holy Spirit the communicator between God and men by inspiration.
The Nontrinitarianism (or antitrinitarianism) refers to Christian belief systems that reject the doctrine of the Trinity as not having scriptural origin. Nontrinitarian views differ widely on the nature of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Various nontrinitarian views, such as Adoptionism, Monarchianism and Arianism existed prior to the formal definition of the Trinity doctrine in 325, 360, and 431 AD, at the Councils of Nicaea, Constantinople, and Ephesus. Following the final victory of orthodoxy at Constantinople in 381, Arianism was driven from the Empire, retaining a foothold amongst the Teutonic tribes. When the Franks converted to Catholicism in 496, however, it gradually faded out. Nontrinitarianism was later renewed in the Gnosticism of the Cathars in the 11th through 13th centuries, in the Age of Enlightenment of the 18th century, andin some groups arising during the Second Great Awakening of the 19th century.
Modern nontrinitarian groups or denominations include Christadelphians, Christian Scientists, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Dawn Bible Students, Friends General Conference, Iglesia ni Cristo, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Living Church of God, Members Church of God International, Oneness Pentecostals, the Seventh Day Church of God, Unitarian Universalist Christians, United Church of God, and The Shepherd’s Chapel and Eric Michel Universal Catholic Ministry.
Islam and Judaism traditionally profess a concept of monotheism with a singular person as God, and consequently reject Trinitarianism. Islam considers Jesus to be a prophet but not divine, and Allah to be absolutely indivisible; several verses of the Quran state that the Trinity doctrine is blasphemous.
“Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.— Qur’an, sura 112 (Al-Ikhlas), ayat 1–4
