The Problem of the Trinity [13 pages]
by David Kemball-Cook rated at 3.6 (4 votes so far)
It is the thesis of this paper that there is no viable route between modalism and tritheism for a Trinity defined in the ways that theologians have attempted. There is no internally consistent way of defining or explaining a Trinity which does not result in shipwreck either on the ‘Scylla’ of modalism or in the ‘Charybdis’ of tritheism. There are three ambiguities and confusions in the attempted definitions of the Trinity which have tended to obscure these difficulties.
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.

Did Jesus Claim to Be God?

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.
