Should Christianity Abandon the Doctrine of the Trinity?

Front Cover
Universal-Publishers, 2006 - Religion - 264 pages
This is a highly controversial exposition of a doctrine which has dominated Christianity for two thousand years. The book takes apart, piece by piece, the very foundation that so many religions use to support the belief that there are three persons in one God. It analyses the major scriptural references pointed to in Trinity support texts, and examines them in the light of biblical context and by original-language comparisons. World-renowned authorities on biblical Hebrew and Greek are sought for their views on these key scriptures. This is a compelling book which turns the very foundation of Christianity onto its head.

Page 14 - Faith is this : that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity, neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the substance. For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one ; the glory equal, the- majesty coeternal.
Page 14 - And in this Trinity none is afore or after other, none is greater or less than another ; But the whole three Persons are co-eternal together, and co-equal.
Page 14 - So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God; And yet they are not three Gods, but one God.
