The NT Teaches that God Is One [12 pages]
by Chuck LaMattina rated at 4.4 (9 votes so far)
For many Christians this belief in the Trinity is the acid test for real faith. There is only one problem with this acid test, however. Nowhere does the Bible ever claim that God is a Trinity of persons. As we saw from the last chapter the Old Testament states that there is only one God and one person who is God. The great creed of Old Testament faith was, "Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one!"
The OT Teaches that God Is One [9 pages]

There is only one true God and one person who is God. All Christians agree that there is only one true God. But all Christians do not agree on whom precisely that one God is. Millions of Christians profess that God is a Trinity of persons. They have been told that God consists of three distinct persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who together make up one God. Yet, the Old Testament adamantly and clearly teaches that God is a single individual.

With the coming into existence of Jesus Christ at his conception and birth, the full plan and heart of God was expressed as a human being. Jesus Christ was full of divine grace and truth. What became flesh in John 1.14 was not a preexistent or eternally begotten Son of God. What became flesh was God's full plan of salvation revealed in the Man Jesus Christ.
