“I and the Father are one.” John 10:30

cult symbolThe Trinitarian view is to get us to believe that this means Christ and the Father are of one essence or equality, when that is not what the verse teaches. The context is disregarded, for the context tells us about the good shepherd in contrast to the evil shepherds (see Eze. 34) Christ, our shepherd keeps the sheep away from the wolves, they cannot snatch us out of his hand, but that doesn’t mean we can’t walk away from the shepherd. As long as we are faithful to the shepherd, the wolves cannot snatch us out of his hand.

What is missing here is that the Father and the Son work together.  The Father, whom Christ says “is greater than all,” gives the flock to His Son. Please NOTE how both are working together:

I give them eternal, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of MY HAND. (Christ the shepherd)

What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch them out of the FATHER’S HAND.

This is working together and has nothing to do with the false Trinity doctrine trying to make both the Father and the Son of the same substance or equality.

Furthermore, Jesus the Messiah prayed to his Father that all those who follow him (Christ) have the same oneness that he shares with the Father.

I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that THEY MAY BE ONE, AS WE ARE ONE. (John 17:20-22)

Does that make US the same substance or equality with God? Does that make us God?  No, it has to do with one in purpose.

When it comes to the unbiblical teaching of the Trinity, we must heed Paul’s warning (concerning any other matter as well).

Beware lest anyone rob you through philosophy and vain deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ.
