    Anti divinity advocates have a 33 year old carpenter as a temporary man-God running the universe. And if God gave ALL power, did God retire?

    "Mortal man was never the property of the archdeceivers. Jesus did not die to ransom man from the clutch of the apostate rulers and fallen princes of the spheres. The Father in heaven never conceived of such crass injustice as damning a mortal soul because of the evil doing of his ancestors."UB

    Does the scripture teach us that we must believe in the Trinity doctrine to be saved?
    No, it does not.

    Does the scripture even state that there is such a thing as the Trinity?
    No it does not.

    Can a person who has been told that God is a Trinity use the scriptures to prove to himself that God is a Trinity?
    Yes.

    Can a person who does not believe God is a Trinity use the scriptures to prove that God is not a Trinity?
    Yes.

    Which is it?
    Your statement is an example of the logic fallacy called False Trichotomy.

    I am not blind to the truth, since I search the scripture for the truth.

    I am a true believer, since I believe what the scripture says.

    I am not caught up in false doctrine, since I verify every doctrine of man against the teachings of the scripture.

    Verifying a doctrine against the teachings of the scripture will often result in a different answer than searching the scripture for verses that can validate a doctrine.

    The concept that God's spoken word was used to create the universe comes from the first chapter of the Bible.

    The spoken word of God has the power to maintain the universe.

    The concept that humans were made in the image of God by God Himself also comes from the first chapter of the Bible.

    Genesis 1:27
    27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    What a great verse that supports Unitarianism.

    We see that God, who usually speaks through prophets, is now speaking to us by His Son, and that God has appointed His Son as His heir.

    For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. (1 Corinthians 15:27 NKJV)

    Without exception there are always exceptions.

    Please be advised that everywhere in your translation of your OT when it is written "the LORD" with all capitals, then in the original Hebrew it says the four lettered name of God: Y-H-W-H. That name appears almost 7000 times in the Hebrew Bible.

    Hear Israel, Y-H-W-H is our God, Y-H-W-H is

    And you shall love Y-H-W-H your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.
    And these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart;
    and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
    And you shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
    And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
    Deut 6:4-9

    The Jews until this day fulfill this commandment. Every morning they put upon their arm and upon their forehead their phylacteries, (prayer belts) that consist of black straps with black leather cubes, that contain parchment upon which is written this Biblical text that says that God is one. Upon the doorposts of the houses of the religious Jews there are small boxes or containers that also contain parchment upon which is written that God is one. During the morning and evening prayers the above text is recited which says that God is one.

    And there is only God, and that is Y-H-W-H, and besides Him there is no god.

    Therefore there is no divinity in your messiah.


    "O Y-H-W-H, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in the day of affliction. The Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say: “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things. Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know My hand and My might; and they shall know that My name is Y-H-W-H.”

    That Creator however, is Y-H-W-H, so that doesn't hold water:

    "This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that Y-H-W-H God made the earth and the heavens"

    Why is it that you can't/won't see that God is one? It is all over Scripture, see HERE

    Why are you blind for the truth in Scripture?

    Why do you keep on running after extra-Biblical lies like trinity?

    That's true and the Logos who was God became flesh and dwelt with his brethren. The Logos is identified as the only begotten of the Father (John 1:14 NKJV).

    and the Holy Spirit "as a third person" does not get a mention in the Bible.

    1Ti 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

    1Co 1:1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,
    1Co 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
    1Co 1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
    1Co 1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;
    Now I see your problem.
