Only One God [33:16]
by Paul Rankin rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)
Orthodoxy tells us that we have to believe a "trinity" to be Christians. But why isn't this triune teaching obvious anywhere in scripture? Who or what did Jesus and his fellow Jews worship? In today's message, you may be surprised to find the simple the truth when we let scripture speak for itself.
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 endeavors to uncover the usage of the Hebrew word Elohim, translated in English, God. Elohim, its meaning and its interpretation has been greatly debated in Christendom, giving way to the idea that the word suggests that God is a plurality of persons. Nothing could be further from the truth. The biblical data that begins to unfold during this sermon shows how flexibly the word is used - for the One true God, for angels, men, nations, etc...
