Unitarian Monotheism  [51:53]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 2.3 (8 votes so far)

While many agree with the monotheistic faith of the biblical God, few understand His unipersonality. This sermon endeavors to draw out key texts from both the old and new testaments to highlight the truth that has eluded many: that God is in fact a single person. The bible teaches, not Trinitarian monotheism, but rather Unitarian monotheism. (This sermon was originally preached at the Red Words Church on 2-May-2010 in Melbourne, Australia.)

Monotheism  [53:31]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 2.0 (7 votes so far)

The bible teaches monotheism - that God alone is the only one who is truly God. This sermon endeavors to highlight key texts from both the old and new testaments where the Greek word "monos" is used in reference to God's personality and nature to clearly identify Him as a single, one and only God. (This sermon was originally preached at the Red Words Church on 11-Oct-2009 in Melbourne, Australia.)

Echad  [48:45]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)

This teaching endeavors to uncover the usage of the Hebrew word Echad, translated in English, one. Echad has been greatly misunderstood, when the subject of how many God is - the most prevalent teaching that says the word Echad means a plurality in unity (a oneness). Echad has meant and will always mean numerically one - and this teaching goes to length to reveal the biblical data that fairly represents this truth. God is truly echad, a uni-personal being.

Elohim  [53:21]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)

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... Click here for part two, entitled "Theos." (This sermon was originally preached at the Red Words Church on 30-May-2010 in Melbourne, Australia.)

Eis  [48:56]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)

This teaching is part 2 of where Echad left - uncovering the usage of the NT Greek word Eis, translated in English, one. The trend that is found in the OT Hebrew regarding Echad, which means numerically one, is carried into the NT - "eis" and its counterparts words like "en", "monos" and the like, clearly bring to light the wonderful truth that God is a single person, not triune as the popular tradition of the Trinity asserts. This teaching attempts to present the biblical data.

Theos  [47:40]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 2.8 (12 votes so far)

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.)

The Doctrine of God and Christ  [52:40]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 2.0 (7 votes so far)

Citing more than 60 verses, Steve Katsaras of Australia thoroughly explains the biblical doctrines of God and Christ before telling the story of how these truths were corrupted in the ecumenical counsels of the fourth and fifth centuries.

Yahweh is one, not two or three, and there is no God besides him. The Bible uses singular pronouns in reference to God thousands upon thousands of time, a fact that clearly teaches God is a singular individual. This one God is the eternal, omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent creator of heaven and earth.

Jesus is the human mediator who called God his Father. Jesus had a beginning in time and is the miraculously born son of God. Jesus recognized his Father as the only true God who was his superior. Jesus admitted to possessing limited knowledge; he was a mortal man who experienced temptation, hunger, thirst, weariness, suffering, death, and resurrection.

The doctrines of God and Christ mutated over time and continued to develop in new and unbiblical ways after the New Testament was written. Steve talks about the first four ecumenical counsels (Nicea in a.d. 325, Constantinople in a.d. 381, Ephesus in a.d. 431, and Chalcedon in a.d. 451) to demonstrate how these doctrines evolved over time.

Explaining Matthew 28.19  [56:27]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 1.9 (8 votes so far)

This text has widely come to be known as the Trinitarian baptismal formula - baptism into the threefold name. This is perhaps the strongest text found in the Bible that supposedly proves that God is a plurality of persons, spoken directly by Jesus himself! Is this assertion true? Is Jesus advocating 3 divine persons within the one essence of God by introducing this formula? The following is a study of the text using a range of methods to highlight the weight of evidence for/against each argument.
