Simple Logic, Simple Arithmetic

Trinitarians like to take verses such as “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30), “I am in the Father and the Father is in me” (John 14:10), to prove the trinity doctrine. They explain that the Father and Jesus are one in the same being, of the same substance (whatever that really means). They say they are united in one body – God became flesh in the person of Jesus and lived among men. In John 14:20 Jesus also said, “I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.”

Verses like those above suggest no other meaning than their “unity in purpose.” The verses have nothing to do with substance or the trinity (three beings or persons composed of one God). Furthermore, in the same manner that the verses are interpreted (each one infused into one body), they should not limit the trinity to 3 beings (persons). We now have to add the 12 disciples (John 14:20) in this one body, which produces fifteen (15) beings united in one body! Their trinity doctrine now becomes more problematic because they fail to understand how flawed is their logic, and their math not so simple anymore by the way they interpret the scriptures through the trinity lenses.

The Creed (not the Bible) states that the ‘Three Persons’ are united in one body, making one God, and cannot be separated. My question is, how can any member be considered fully God when in reality each of them constitutes 1/3 of the ‘Godhead’? Also, while Jesus was on earth, he wasn’t completely God. (Trinitarians say he “emptied himself, meaning, he emptied himself of his deity to become human.) This would leave the Father in heaven not a whole God (separated). One third of Him ceased to be God.

When Jesus was on the cross he cried, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matt. 27:46) “Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit.” (Luke 23:46) This is a cry from a person in distress. If Jesus is God, by whom is he deserted? Was he deserted by himself? Did God forsake God? Did God raise himself from the dead? Since God is immortal (1 Tim. 6:16), how can 1/3 of God die? In the Trinitarian world God forsakes himself (God forsakes God), commits himself to God (God commits himself to himself), and raises himself from the dead (God raises a dead God)? Does anyone not see the absurdity?

God Almighty is one single being, not three. Over 11,000 times the singular pronouns tell us God is a single person. Whenever the Bible speaks of God in the third person it reads “He,” “Him,” or “His.” Not one time are plural personal pronouns used (we, us, our, ours, they, them, their, and theirs). Example. If God is three, John 3:16 should read like this:

For God so loved the world that THEY gave THEIR only begotten Son.”

Or when Jesus said how from the beginning God created them male and female.

Have you not read that HE who created them from the beginning made them male and female?”

If Jesus is God, it should read,

Have you not read, that WE who created them from the beginning…”

I can give so many other examples, but as you can see, to claim Jesus is God Almighty negates the rules of language, leaving it absolutely useless as a tool of communication.
