The Hebrew Scriptures testify consistently that Yahweh created the heavens and the earth, by Himself.

A survey and exegesis of Colossians 1.16. (This video is also available on Google Video http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5078832950735204329).

Acts 5.3 and the Holy Spirit

Jesus called the holy spirit the “finger of God;” so the holy spirit is God’s instrument of activity, and the Bible associates God’s spirit with His power. Therefore, the holy spirit should not be regarded as a person, whether as part of a trinity or as a totally separate person; but it is reflective of Personality, and that Personality is God (the Father).
