The Doctrine of God and Christ [52:40]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 2.0 (7 votes so far)
Citing more than 60 verses, Steve Katsaras of Australia thoroughly explains the biblical doctrines of God and Christ before telling the story of how these truths were corrupted in the ecumenical counsels of the fourth and fifth centuries.
Yahweh is one, not two or three, and there is no God besides him. The Bible uses singular pronouns in reference to God thousands upon thousands of time, a fact that clearly teaches God is a singular individual. This one God is the eternal, omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent creator of heaven and earth.
Jesus is the human mediator who called God his Father. Jesus had a beginning in time and is the miraculously born son of God. Jesus recognized his Father as the only true God who was his superior. Jesus admitted to possessing limited knowledge; he was a mortal man who experienced temptation, hunger, thirst, weariness, suffering, death, and resurrection.
The doctrines of God and Christ mutated over time and continued to develop in new and unbiblical ways after the New Testament was written. Steve talks about the first four ecumenical counsels (Nicea in a.d. 325, Constantinople in a.d. 381, Ephesus in a.d. 431, and Chalcedon in a.d. 451) to demonstrate how these doctrines evolved over time.
The OT Teaches that God Is One [9 pages]
by Chuck LaMattina rated at 3.3 (14 votes so far)
There is only one true God and one person who is God. All Christians agree that there is only one true God. But all Christians do not agree on whom precisely that one God is. Millions of Christians profess that God is a Trinity of persons. They have been told that God consists of three distinct persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who together make up one God. Yet, the Old Testament adamantly and clearly teaches that God is a single individual.
Debate: Is God One or Three in One? [143:07]
by Sean Finnegan vs. Russ Dizdar rated at 3.3 (18 votes so far)
Sean Finnegan and Russ Dizdar participate in a debate over the question of who God is. Mr. Finnegan took the affirmative position that the Father is the only true God (cf. Jn 17.3) and Mr. Dizdar, took the traditional position that God is three persons in one essence--the Trinity. The tone was very civil and both sides were able to present their positions.
Unfortunately, the moderator, GeorgeAnn Hughes (founder of The Byte Show) was not able to participate very much because she was having some trouble with her voice. As a result, the participants had to keep track of their own time and took turns presenting their cases. The format of the debate was as follows:
20 minutes -- Sean Finnegan
20 minutes -- Russ Dizdar
15 minutes -- Sean Finnegan

The Shema: The Creed of Jesus [47:10]
by Sean Finnegan rated at 3.2 (13 votes so far)
The central creed of the Old Testament is that Yahweh our God is one. Jesus held this as his creed and so should we today. The Trinity is an affront to biblical monotheism and seeks to change the 'one' into 'three.' This is not an option if we want to be like Jesus who said that the Father is the only true God
God and Jesus: An Overview [46:54]
by Sean Finnegan rated at 3.2 (13 votes so far)
The Bible teaches that Yahweh alone is the true God. Yahweh is a singular individual who created all things. Jesus is the human Messiah, virginally begotten and commissioned by God to rule the world. This brief overview of the two main individuals in the Bible clarifies the true identity of God and Jesus. To download the slide show that accompanies this sermon, click here.
Let Us Make Man: A Study of the "Us Texts" [42:55]
by Sean Finnegan rated at 3.1 (12 votes so far)
Who was God talking to in Genesis 1.26; 3.21; 11.7; Isaiah 6.8? Should these four texts be used to support the notion that within God are multiple persons? Sean Finnegan demonstrates conclusively that this is simply not the case. Through careful examination of relevant passages and by quoting leading trinitarian study Bibles one simple conclusion emerges: God says "us" in the same sense that "us" is used in any other context--he refers to himself and others (members of his heavenly court).
These books, written by people from diverse backgrounds, express the simple truth that God is one. Some of them are more scholary while others are more autobiographical. In addition, a few of them are available to read online. If you would like more in depth treatment of christian monotheism, these books are the next step to take. Note: if you know of other books, not listed here, please leave us feedback.
