1. Why is it that Trinitarian scholars say John could not have identified Jesus as "the God" at John 1:1 or he would have been promoting Sabellianism. This does not make any sense. The Father is called "the God." Is not the Triune God "the God" in Trinitarianism. Who exactly is "the God?" If the Father can be called "the God" why not the "Son?"
2. Interesting Comment from my video: "Jesus interprets the Shema" by OneTruthFinder
This is going to go nowhere, 10y. You're saying that YHWH was tempted in all points as we are. That's Hebrews 4:15, and that's clearly talking about the temptation to sin. Now what is sin? Falling short of the mark. Paul writes that this is falling short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The "mark" is doing YHWH's will, is it not? If we disobey YHWH, we fall short of His glory. Now, it would be quite ludicrous to suggest that YHWH was tempted agains His own will, to fall short of His own glory
3. Note Heb 1:1-2 where it says GOD THE FATHER is the one who spoke to the prophets but in THESE LAST SAYS He speaks to us in a son. Think about the things then that the Father said in Isaiah excluding all others from identity as God.
Trinitarians insist that if you do not havfe a three person God as your God then you have a different God. But that would mean Jesus had a different God than Trinitarians and Trins have a different God than Jesus. But I have the exact same God as Jesus' God.
John 17:3 Jesus said eternal life was knowing his Father, the only true God, and Jesus whom the Father sent. When Jesus said this, he was praying to his God, and his God was his Father alone. Hence, it is an inescapable conclusion that eternal life comes by knowing Jesus' God and Jesus whom his God sent. His God was not a Trinity.
Note Isaiah 61 quoted by Luke to refer to Jesus:The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; 2 To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, 3 To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified. 4 Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, They will raise up the former devastations; And they will repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations. 5 Strangers will stand and pasture your flocks, And foreigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers. 6 But you will be called the priests of the LORD; You will be spoken of as ministers of our God. You will eat the wealth of nations, And in their riches you will boast. 7 Instead of your shame you will have a double portion, And instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs. 8 For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery in the burnt offering; And I will faithfully give them their recompense And make an everlasting covenant with them. 9 Then their offspring will be known among the nations, And their descendants in the midst of the peoples. All who see them will recognize them Because they are the offspring whom the LORD has blessed. 10 I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, And as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up, So the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise To spring up before all the nations.
