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.

by Sean Finnegan rated at 3.5 (16 votes so far)
Sean Finnegan describes and refutes the belief of three persons in one godhead including a systematic brief treatment of their co-equal, co-eternal, co-essential nature, and the hypostatic union. Does the Trinity make sense? Is the dogma biblical? Join this tour de force through early Church history and the relevant theological constructs of Christianity's most controversial doctrine.
Losing Faith in the Trinity [79:57]
by Christopher Amelung rated at 3.5 (16 votes so far)
Christopher Amelung was raised as an informed evangelical thinker within the Reformed tradition. When he went off to college he met someone who challenged him on his belief in the Trinity. Though, he was confident at the time in his "orthodox" position, he decided to do the research necessary to prove to this person that the Trinity was true from the Bible. This began Christopher on a quest, through which, he lost friendships, was told he would burn in hell, and even was urged by an elder to "just believe in the Trinity and be confused with the rest of us." Listen to his riveting autobiographical account of how God is able to reach someone who is open to hearing his truth no matter what the cost.
The NT Teaches that God Is One [12 pages]
by Chuck LaMattina rated at 3.5 (16 votes so far)
For many Christians this belief in the Trinity is the acid test for real faith. There is only one problem with this acid test, however. Nowhere does the Bible ever claim that God is a Trinity of persons. As we saw from the last chapter the Old Testament states that there is only one God and one person who is God. The great creed of Old Testament faith was, "Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one!"
Is Jesus the Father? [5 pages]
by Mike Hicks rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
Mike Hicks carefully analyzes the central claim of oneness theology that Jesus is the Father. He cites the work of Gordon Magee and David Bernard and then goes on to show that the oneness assertion, "Jesus is the Father," steps far outside of Biblical language and logic. In attempting to disprove the doctrine of the Trinity, which is also false, Jesus-only advocates prove too much.
