Jesus is Immanuel, which means "God is with us." This does not mean Jesus is God, but that Jesus' birth signifies the fact that God is with us; he has not abandoned his people.

Commentary 1 Timothy 5.21

This verse has an element that is very hard to explain if the Trinity is true, and makes perfect sense if it is not. Paul charges Timothy by God, by Christ and by "the elect angels." This fits beautifully with what we teach; i.e., that there is the one God, and there is the man Jesus who has been made "Lord and Christ," but there is no "person" called "the Holy Spirit." If there were a Trinity composed of three co-equal, co-eternal "persons," why would Paul charge Timothy by the "elect angels" and leave the "Holy Spirit" out of the picture?
