The Biblical Case for Oneness
Christianity is the most widespread religion in world history. That is an amazing testament to the spread of the Word of God. However, it seems as though most Christians have not read the Bible. I do not say this in the spirit of belittling, but in the spirit of the truth. The trinity is a concept thought of and spread by man. The trinitarian doctrine did not fully form until the fourth century. It is not mentioned in the Bible. The Bible verse that most trinitarians point to in order to “prove” the trinity, I John 5:7-8, was not even in any translation of the Bible before the 16th century. It was added by Erasmus after he was pressured by the Catholic Church.
There is a plethora of textual evidence in the Bible that prove that God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus were all one:
- I and my Father are one.
John 10:30 KJV
- There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
- Ephesians 4:4-6 KJV
- Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord :
- Deuteronomy 6:4
- For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
- 1 Corinthians 12:13
- But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
- John 10:38 KJV
