How the Bible is Twisted

4. The Holy Trinity is not in the Bible

In a nutshell, the Holy Trinity of God is “three persons in one God.” God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:18-20). The three parts are separate personalities. And yet, together, they form one being – God.

The Bible confirms the Holy Trinity through Mathew 3:16-17, Luke 1:35, and John 15:26. More than 60 New Testament verses mention the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the same verse. These members of the Godhead are co-existent and coequal, one in essence and yet three in person.

  • Father as God (Philippians 1:2)
  • Jesus as God (Titus 2:13)
  • Holy Spirit as God (Acts 5:3–4)

How is it twisted? “There are three Gods”

Oneness Pentecostals appeal to Mathew 3:16-17, Luke 1:35, John 15:26, Acts 8:16, 19:5, and Matthew 28:19 to say that the Holy Trinity is not supported in scriptures.

In doing so, they embrace modalism, an anti-Trinitarian heresy condemned by the Synod of Smyrna in 200 AD. The Nicene and Athanasian creeds also condemn modalism. (Source: CSB The Apologetics Study Bible, 2017)

Likewise, nontrinitarianism, a form of Christianity that rejects the mainstream Christian doctrine of the Trinity, believes that God is three distinct persons: coeternal, coequal, and indivisibly united in one being or essence.

Therefore, there are three “God-persons” in one essence, not three persons in one God. However, the Bible speaks of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as distinct persons but one God.
