    The belief that there is a Holy Trinity, that encompasses God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit as one single being is NOT in the Bible. This is a false teaching.

    Read John in any version you wish ( I use the King James Version). Through out John Jesus himself repeatedly describes himself as the SON of God, as NOT God, and that God uses the Holy Spirit. He states he is NOT God, but rather his Son. That everything he does he does because his father lets him do it. He says it in NUMEROUS passages in John, in his own words.

    Is Jesus not referred to as The Word?

    One only has to get as far as John 1:1 to disprove your claim.

    In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God and the Word was God.

    :cool:

    Of the three

    God still rules. He is the big guy
    Jesus is the Junior partner

    The Holy Spirit is kind of wimpy and the other two pick on him

    Wrong. The Bible does support, and say, there is a Holy Trinity. You need to read the whole Bible. But then the book of John, contrary to your statement, supports the Holy Trinity. Try again.

    This gets interesting a bit when talking of the Trinity. May I please ask, Sgt.. do you call Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior?

    If you say yes, then what you said can only be false. Because how can you call Jesus Christ your Lord, when God has said repeatedly throughout His Word - there is only ONE God?







    op

    This verse in particular shows Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:





    However, if you say no, that Jesus Christ is not the Lord; then it is understandable what you said above, but it is still false and/or as per His Word.

    The whole point of the "Revelation" of Jesus Christ, is that we KNOW He is the Lord.
    Not God, the Father, but God, the Son. Fully man, and Fully God. And this is not revealed by "man" but by through the Spirit.

    Just because we do not fully understand something; doesn't mean it isn't true.

    The trinity idea was floated by the catholic church to consolidate and strengthen their power. Nothing more.

    Who gets top billing? The Father
    Then the Son

    Holy Spirit is a weak third. His god powers are nowhere close to the other two.
