Who do you honestly think spoke those words in the above verse? (1) Jesus' Father? Or, (2) a three person being?
When all the facts are before us and honestly regarded, the Trinity is shown to be a false doctrine for many, many reasons. But here we will look briefly at three general reasons into which almost all other more specific reasons will fit. First, the Bible never ever once mentions a three person God nor does it anywhere indicate that such a being even exists. Second, if you really stop and think about it, the doctrine of the Trinity is a concept which is manufactured by first creating a hypothesis out of thin air (that a three person God exists) and then manipulating the data to reach that desired outcome. Third, the true identity of the one true God is actually given to us in the Bible even to the point of God the Father explicitly exluding absolutely everyone else but Himself.
1. The Trinity is a Manufactured Hypothesis Not a Fact
Trinitarians just hope everyone will accept their hypothesis which they have created, to wit, that a three person God does in fact exist. Nowhere in Scripture are we informed that such a three person being does exist. However, the onus is on them to demonstrate this three person God does in fact exist. The onus is never on anyone to prove a negative. The onus is also upon Trinitarians to explain why this three person being is never mentioned in the Scriptures. The main character of the Bible is the one true God and He is mentioned thousands of times, yet not one single mention of a three person God can be found in the entire Bible. Despite this reality, Trinitarians would like everyone to believe that this unmentioned being actually exists and accept their hypothesis of a three person God which they have created in order to try and explain a handful of Scripture verses which they otherwise don't know what they should do with. And even though the onus is upon Trinitarians, on this site you will find that it is actually quite easy to demonstrate their doctrine is an error.
2. The Scriptural and Historical Data is Manipulated to Reach a Desired Conclusion
It is difficult for many people to believe that there are so many false claims made by Trinitarians. Yes indeed it is difficult to accept that so many lies could be told. But we have all learned in history that if you tell a lie, or a number of lies, and you repeat them over and over and over again, people will believe it because this lie sounds familiar to their ears and people will then mistake familiarity for the truth. In fact, most people are duped into believing the Trinity is true because Trinitarians claim they have many evidences for their doctrine. And so by setting forth a plethora of false claims, they seek to create the illusion that there is a lot of evidence for the Trinity. But if you actually investigate these claims carefully, you will find that everyone single one of them is a house built upon the sand and they have nothing but false claims to offer you. Manipulating the data to try and make something true simply will not make it true. On this site, you will find how many of these illusions were created by manipulating the data.
3. Extremely Significant Facts are Either Ignored or Disingenuously Slighted as Irrelevant Inconveniences
Additionally, the Trinitarian claim when examined and tested does not stand the test of truth. When something is true, all the pieces fit, not just some of them. The one true God, Jesus' one and only God, is explicitly and exclusively identified for us in the Bible. Jesus' God was his Father alone. Nobody else but his Father was the one God of this Jew, the man Jesus. And his God was the same God as every other Jew: one person, the God and Father of Jesus, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who sent his servent Jesus. So it should not be surprising to anyone that the one true God is identified in the Scriptures as the Father alone. In fact, the Father himself explicitly excludes everyone else but He Himself. On this site, you will find several instances of Scripture where the Father alone is demonstrated to be the only true God.
Making an image of God, as Trinitarians do by creating a God which is nothing more than a hypothesis designed to suit their needs, is an offense to God, whether you make this image with molten metal to serve or you make this image in your mind to serve. A Triune God is never once mentioned in the Bible. It must be first preconceived in the human mind, an preconceived image must be formed in the human imagination, and then this preconceived image of God must then be read back into the Bible at will and as one pleases. Trinitarians believe in the Trinity because they either don't know the facts, or because they want to believe this dreamt up idea is true despite all the facts. But a desire for something to be true has never in the history of mankind ever made it true.
The only God Jesus ever knew was his Father alone. Who then is the only true God of Jesus who dwells in you? If you have the mind of Christ, who then is your one and only God?
You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth. (John 4:22-24).
I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God. (John 20:17).
