The Truth about God and His Son Jesus Christ

We believe in one Almighty, Most High, Supreme Being (Deu 6:4; Isa 44:6; Joh 14:28; 17:1-3; 1 Cor 8:6; 1 Tim 2:5; Heb 11:6; Jam 2:19), who is the Father, Yahweh, and who is above all else (Eph 4:6).

We do not believe in the Trinity (a so-called 3-in-1), Oneness (one in many modes), or a Duality (which may have varying concepts, such as 2 Almightys or a 2-in-1 (aka “twinity”).

We simply believe that there is one Almighty, and we believe that Yahshua is His Son (Mat 16:13-16).

We do not believe that the Father is the Son, or that the Son is the Father. We believe the Son’s words, “My Father is greater than I” (Joh 14:28).

Yahshua further clarified that the concept of His being one with the Father is a oneness in purpose when He stated, “Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are” (Joh 17:11b), “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one” (Joh 17:22). If Yahshua actually is Yahweh, which the Oneness (one in many modes) doctrine states, then that would also make Yahshua’s disciples referred to in John 17 one person as well, instead of several individuals. To carry this flawed logic further, if Yahshua actually is Yahweh, then, by extension, even Yahshua’s disciples are Yahweh by virtue of them being in Yahshua, and, in turn, Yahweh being in Yahshua (“And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one…” – Joh 17:22-23a). Obviously, Yahshua’s disciples were several individuals, not one person. And, obviously, the disciples are not Yahweh, the Almighty. The point of Yahshua’s prayer for His disciples was for them to have the same oneness in purpose that Yahshua and Yahweh have.

Also compare how that it is stated in Scripture that husband and wife are to be one (Gen 2:24; Eph 5:31). Do they cease to be individuals at this point? Obviously, the answer is no.

According to 1 Timothy 2:5, Yahshua is a mediator. A mediator is a go-between between two other parties – in this case, Yahweh and man. This bears repeating, notice: Yahshua is a mediator between Yahweh and man. Also see 1 John 2:1, where Yahshua is described as “an Advocate [for us] with the Father.” This is another example that makes it very clear that Yahshua is not Yahweh.

In the end, “…When all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that Yahweh may be all in all” (1 Cor 15:28, also see vv 23-27).

Also see: Rom 8:34; 1 Cor 11:3; Heb 12:2; 2 Joh 1:9; Rev 3:14.
