Did Jesus Claim to Be God? [1 page]

In John 5.18 and John 10.38, the Jews thought Jesus was claiming equality with God, but they were wrong. Jesus was calling God “his own Father;” he was not claiming to be God.

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?
