The Trinity: Truth or Tragedy [170:53]
by Greer Dixon & Mages vs. Coleangelo Sarkisian & Enochs rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
This, the first of three public debates clashing the ideas of the Trinity vs. Biblical Unitarianism (not to be confused with Universalist Unitarianism), also called strict monotheism, was held in Riverside, California on Friday, December 30, 2005.
This debate, moderated by Steve Scianni, is a discussion between conservative Trinitarian and Unitarian Christians who both share a high respect for the grammatico-historical method of hermeneutics (exegesis and interpretation).
Arguing for biblical Unitarianism are Lee Greer, Danny Andre Dixon, moderator of the Disciples for One God discussion forum (http://4OneGod.net), and Dan Mages (http://HungerTruth.com).
At the Trinitarian table, coached by Dr. Robert Morey of Faith Defenders Christian Ministry (www.faithdefenders.com), are Gabriel Coleangelo (Pastor of DC Christian Fellowship, Moreno Valley, CA), Mike Sarkisian (Pastor of DC Christian Fellowship, Moreno Valley), and Edward Enochs, Reformed Presuppositional apologist in the tradition of Cornelius Van Til and prolific blogger for the society.
The 2 hour 51 minute discussion was videotaped by Michael Hawkins and M.G. Dockery in the auditorium of the historic First Congregational Church 3504 Mission Avenue, Riverside, California (Rev. Jane Quandt, Senior Minister).
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.
Shaliah: An Introduction to the Law of Agency
by Raymond James Essoe [15 pages]
rated at 2.9 (out of 11 votes)
A common feature of the Hebrew Scriptures is the concept (some even call it the "law") of Jewish agency. All Old Testament scholars and commentators recognize that in Jewish custom whenever a superior commissioned an agent to act on his behalf, the agent was regarded as the person himself. Without this understanding we may unintentionally misread texts that refer to Jesus as God.
