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.

What Does Pre-human Existence Really Mean?
by Ray Faircloth [10 pages]
rated at 1 (out of 5 votes)
Jehovah’s Witnesses and the various Bible Student groups teach that Jesus, on earth, was fully human and was the equal of the pristine Adam. This teaching means that he was not a hybrid - part human/part spirit creature. Yet these denominations also teach that Jesus had a pre-human existence, having been created as a spirit before the Genesis creation. Then at the time of Jesus’ conception the spirit creature’s life was transferred to Mary’s womb. The Bible Student groups generally do not accept the Jehovah’s Witnesses teaching that Jesus was previously the archangel Michael; but nevertheless they believe that he previously was a spirit person existing in heaven.
