    Asking where the words, "God the Son, hypostatic union, dual nature, and God man" is a strange question if the theology behind these terms can be shown to be derived from the bible. Such an imposed requirement of asking that specific words be shown to be in the bible, which those who hold to these never say are found in the bible but only the theology behind them, can be equated to saying, "well the word bible is not found in the bible so there must be no bible."

    I recognise the anti trinitarian worship at my church's worship every Sunday. The whole emphasis is on Jesus. Jesus is spoken of like he is God and their is no Spirit or Father, but Jesus is everything. This attitude is contrary to Jesus own statements in the gospels. The worship of Jesus only, ignoring the trinity is idolatry!

    Well, this isn't the thread to debate it, but no, I disagree with you. "I and the Father are one." There is no honoring the Son without honoring the Father or Spirit. Most often, the mistake I see is that one doesn't rightly understand that God is One, Father, Spirit, and Son is/are God. It is given as a mystery, but the 'equatedness' is clear, Suggestion: Spend a little time reading the Creeds, their scriptures given, and why the documents were crafted the way they were. You don't have to agree with the Creeds unless they are wholly Biblical, and I believe they are. Further discussion might be taken to one of the threads linked on the first page. This specific thread simply tracks these threads and if they get overtly top-heavy on TOL, we can eliminate the redundant ones leaving one or two in the wake that carry the intent (we haven't had to, because a new one is started almost every other day here on TOL by Arians/Unitarians). This thread is simply about the #'s and discussion about their specific existence on TOL rather than a rehashing of those exact same topics in yet another thread, as it were. Thanks -Lon

    Okay my comment was in the wrong thread. I was not seeking to debate the Trinity. I am fully 100% convinced of the Trinity. The Trinity is not just a doctrine for academic textbooks or theology students. The Trinity is what I practice everyday. This is especially so in prayer to the Father in Jesus name through the Holy Spirit. My observation of the complete focus on Jesus at church, especially in worship, is out of focus with the New Testament witness. Let the church practice the same Trinitarian balance shown in the New Testament.

    If you want scriptural warrant(s) for the doctrine of the Trinity, start at the beginning - Genesis 1.1-2.4a, the locus classics of trinitarian theology.This is not the 'last' time the doctrine is delivered,but you should begin here, that is, if you want to learn something:

    If you are serious about theology, the you can download Hebrew and Greek fonts from the link listed on the following page:

    That's the whole reason for the Trinity doctrine, it is to have everyone worshipping Jesus(true name is Yehowshuwa) instead of the Father Yehowah.

    Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

    Interesting and entirely explained by the Trinity doctrine of the Church.

    There is distinction between the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Father generates the Son, and the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and from the Son. This is why the Lord Jesus Christ the Son, said, "I and the Father are one," and it's also why the Church believes and teaches that the Maker is the Trinity. He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and that's why the Church baptizes in the name of the Trinity, because That's the Maker.

    God.

    This is not a 'debate the trinity' thread. It is a thread specifically about the number of threads and why they exist, as well as a reference tool.
