Do we not all have one Father? Has not one God created us?
Proof the Trinity Error
This statement by the prophet Malachi shows us that he considered the one God who created them to be the Father.
Malachi 1:6 and 3:17
In response to this verse, some Trinitarians claim the "Father" in view is Abraham. However, the contextual facts demonstrate otherwise:
A son honors his Father, and a servant his master. Then if I am a Father, where is My honor? And if I am a master, where is My respect?’ says Yahweh of Hosts to you, O priests who despise My name. 1:6
They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. 3:17.
God as Father and Creator of Israel
When Israel was a youth I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My son. Hosea 11:1
Thus says Yahweh, "Israel is My son, My firstborn. So I said to you, "Let My son go that he may serve Me." Exodus 4:22-23
Do you thus repay Yahweh, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not your Father who has bought you? He has made you and established you... You neglected the Rock who begat you, and forgot the God who gave you birth. Yahweh saw this, and spurned them because of the provocation of His sons and daughters... I, I am He, and there is no God besides Me. Deuteronomy 32:6, 18-19,39
But now, thus says Yahweh, your Creator, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel. Isaiah 43:1
But now listen, O Jacob, My servant, and Israel, whom I have chosen: Thus says Yahweh who made you and formed you from the womb. Isaiah 44:1-2
Thus says Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: "Ask Me about the things to come concerning My sons, and you shall commit to Me the work of My hands." Isaiah 45:11
Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, you who have been borne by Me from birth and have been carried from the womb. Isaiah 46:3
For You are our Father, though Abraham does not know us and Israel does not recognize us. You, O Yahweh, are our Father, Our Redeemer from of old is Your name. Isaiah 63:16
But now, O Yahweh, You are our Father. Isaiah 64:8
Malachi the prophet describes Yahweh as their one Father and God who created them. This also demonsrates it was the Father who delivered them out of Egypt.
