The Oneness of God
There are three global religions which believe in monotheism - that God is one and there is only one God - Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. But only within one - Christianity - are there two competing beliefs as to the manner of the existence of the one God.
One group believes that the one God eternally exists in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The other group believes that Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are three 'manifestations' of the one God.
Although ultimately only the Holy Spirit can open a person's understanding to the Godhead, avoiding unbiblical terms and phrases will help tremendously. That's why we advocate staying away from terms such as 'trinity', '3 in 1', 'God the Son', and other terms and phrases not found in any English translation.
You will search in vain for these terms and phrases in the original languages of the Old Testament - Hebrew and Aramaic - and the language of the New Testament - Greek. You will also not find a shred of evidence that the culture of the ancient Hebrews or that of the early Christians supported such concepts.
The oneness of God website will examine the scriptures in detail to reveal the truth of the Godhead. In addition, we look to history to find any infiltration of pagan concepts into Christianity. Early church history provides an abundance of evidence of such contamination.
