    I recently read an article which shows that the Trinity is not biblical. Can some of you read this article to prove whether it is right or wrong? But please, everything based on the Bible and not your own opinions.

    That site claims that Jesus is NOT God. That's gonna be a problem here. And who cares what some web site says. Is this your site and are you promoting it?

    The Bible confirms the Trinity.

    The doctrine of the Trinity provides the best explanation for all that the Bible reveals about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. If there are specific things you would like to discuss, please post them.

    Really? Why don't you explain how the article 'shows' that the Trinity is not Biblical.

    Well, the word "Trinity" doesn't appear in the Bible. (I am always amused when people give that reason.) :)

    Can we kill that poll or reword it.

    To first name the topic with a question "Is Jesus really God?" and then follow with a poll that asks "Is the article (which says he is not) true?" Makes the simple 'yes' or 'no' choice of the poll very deceptive.

    Glad you said that because I voted incorrectly based on the title of the thread. !

    Here's another consideration:
    Doctrinal Statement
    We believe that the Bible is inspired by God in its entirety, and is without error in the original autographs, a complete and final written revelation from God.
    We believe that there is only one God, who is eternal and immutable, and manifests Himself in three distinct Persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah, born of a virgin, totally without sin, God in human flesh, the One Who died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose again from the dead on the third day, and ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven, where He now intercedes for us who believe in Him.

    Any promotion against these beliefs would be problematic for anyone wishing to post at this site. We are believers in Jesus, God with us. So YES, it's biblical that Jesus is really God.

    I usually respond that the word “Bible” is not in the Bible either. It’s on the cover describing the contents.

    Isaiah 43:11I, yes I, am the LORD, and there is no other Savior.


    What of those verses where we are told God is one. And God says of himself there is he and no other?
    Deuteronomy 6:4

    John 1:1
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    John 1:14
    And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

    From the above post I can't understand whether you believe Jesus is Deity or not. I know at my age I'm slow but will you please clarify for me?

    "Was" or "is"? A manifestation of God, a mode of God, or deity that is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit?

    It is my understanding that in the One Divine essence there are three persons of individual subsistences, to put it very very briefly.
