Is the Trinity Biblical? (Truth Matters) [28:06]
by Patrick Navas rated at 3.0 (11 votes so far)
Patrick Navas has been a Bible student for the last fourteen years--ever since one of the Gideons handed him a free pocket New Testament and he was gripped by John 3.16. In his quest to understand Christianity he quickly learned that there were quite a few differences between various groups which all claimed to have the truth. This propelled Patrick into long years of study as he researched the biggest question of all--who is God?
The result of that work was his 2006 book titled Divine Truth or Human Tradition?: A Reconsideration of the Roman Catholic-Protestant Doctrine of the Trinity in Light of the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. His book not only lays out the clear biblical teaching about God, but it also interacts with top trinitarian defenders such as Dr. James R. White, John MacArthur, Dr. Wayne Grudem, Robert Bowman Jr., Dr. Robert Morey, Dr. R. C. Sproul, and others. Patrick defends his position with cogency and humility as he enumerates the reasons why the Trinity is not a biblical doctrine.
These books, written by people from diverse backgrounds, express the simple truth that God is one. Some of them are more scholary while others are more autobiographical. In addition, a few of them are available to read online. If you would like more in depth treatment of christian monotheism, these books are the next step to take. Note: if you know of other books, not listed here, please leave us feedback.

This teaching begins from where Elohim left off, by studying the NT usage of the Greek word Theos, translated in English, God. Again, what is seen here is a continuing trend that was realized in the OT usage of Elohim - Theos is also flexibly used for the One true God, for angels, men, etc...The exegetical study of the word properly reveals who the God of Israel is. (This sermon was originally preached at the Red Words Church on 6-June-2010 in Melbourne, Australia.)
