Is Jesus Both God and Man? [3 pages]
by Sean Finnegan rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)
The dual nature of Jesus trick is used to get Trintarians out of trouble every time the Scripture conflicts with their theory. Yet, is it possible to be both God and Man at the same time? Is there such a thing as impersonal humanity? What does the Bible say?

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.
Jesus is My Lord and My God (John 20.28) [65:06]
by Sean Finnegan rated at 3.4 (15 votes so far)
As biblical unitarians we believe that "Jesus is God," however we do not affirm that Jesus is deity. How is this possible? In the Bible, humans are sometimes called "God." This is because they represent God to the people (either well or poorly). When Jesus is called "God" twice in the New Testament it is because he is authorized as God's agent, not because he is himself divine. Listen or read this item to expose yourself to a thorough and well documented approach to two of the most difficult verses in the New Testament (John 20.28 and Hebrews 1.8).
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
Proud of our God [67:46]
by Victor Gluckin rated at 3.2 (13 votes so far)
An honest appeal for zealousness in understanding and proclaiming our one God to the nations. Let us not cower nor be lifted up with pride, but with compassion preach with boldness that God is a singular individual--the Father of Jesus Christ.
God is Immortal, Jesus Died [3 pages]
by Sean Finnegan rated at 2.0 (7 votes so far)
By definition, immortality is the state of being not able to die. If God is immortal then He can't die. Yet Jesus had to die for the sins of the world. So if Jesus is God then he could not have really paid for the sins of the world, because he could not have really died.
