How to Know that the Trinity is Obviously False
Just One Obvious Fact Which Proves the Doctrine of the Trinity is a Farce
Jesus Christ’s God
The primary question at hand concerning the issue at hand is the identity of the one God who is mentioned thousands of times in the Scriptures. In Trinitarianism, this identity is a three person being, three distinct identities who together are one single identity: the Triune God. According to the Scriptures, there is only one God, one Creator. Trinitarianism claims that this one God, this one Creator, is their Triune Being. According to Trinitarianism, the one God is the Triune God described by their own doctrine of the Trinity.
In order to test the veracity of the Trinitarian claim, all we need to do is contemplate the implications of an extremely simple question. Do the Scriptures tell us that the one God is Jesus Christ’s God? Is it true or false to say that the only God is Jesus Christ’s God? And since there is only one true God, would it ever be plausible to suppose that the only true God is not Jesus Christ’s God? Of course it would not. Hence, it is an inescapable fact that the only true God is Jesus Christ’s God.
Jesus Christ’s God is not a Triune being. Trinitarianism itself acknowledges that Jesus Christ’s God is only one person, the Father. So when we use the expression, “Jesus Christ’s God,” we are effectively referring to only one person, the Father. And if the only true God is Jesus Christ’s God, we are compelled by common reason to conclude that the only true God is the Father, Jesus Christ’s God.
Additionally, it seems that few Trinitarians recognize that the expression, “Jesus Christ’s God” is referring to a person’s God, the person Jesus Christ’s God. In the Trinity doctrine, the person that is in view is God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity. Therefore, the expression “Jesus Christ’s God” effectively means “God’s God” in Trinitarianism since it would be a reference to the person God the Son and his God. God’s God. This is absurd. God does not have a God. For God to have a God would necessarily involves two true Gods since if God the Son has a God, his God is necessarily someone else. But there is only one God.
Another question you can ask yourself is this question: “Is Jesus Christ’s God someone else?” The obvious answer is Yes. Jesus Christ’s God is someone else – his Father. In fact, this is true in Trinitarian doctrine. But if his God is someone else then he is not his God is he? And if he is not his God then he isn’t that God. And if he isn’t that God, you would therefore end up with two Gods by claiming that Jesus is God in addition to someone else who is his God.
There are numerous question one can ask which reveal the truth of the situation. For example, you could ask, “Who created everything?” Did the Triune God create everything? Or did Jesus create everything? Or did Jesus Christ’s God create everything? Since Jesus is not his God, and Jesus Christ’s God is not a Triune God, it is a question which must be asked and honestly answered. It is inescapable that Jesus Christ’s God created everything.
When we regard these things, we can see that Trinitarianism is something which just won’t add up and it is irrational nonsense. In Trinitarianism, Jesus Christ is identified as “God” while Jesus Christ’s God is also identified as “God.” However, in Trinitarianism, Jesus Christ and his God are two different identities; they are not the same identity. He is one identity and his God is another. To say he is God results in two Gods since his God would not be the God that he is. In Trinitarian doctrine, the Father is most definitely not the Son. Therefore, that would mean by definition that Jesus as “God” and his God are not the same God since he is not his God. But in the Scriptures there is only one God. So we end up with a situation where Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ’s God are not the same and since Jesus is not his own God, that necessarily means somebody else is his God. Jesus Christ’s God is not Jesus and does not include Jesus. It is here that one can easily see the contradictions of this Trinitarian farce.
The light of truth begins to shine very brightly when we consider these things honestly and reasonably. If we exclude all Scriptural mentions of pagan gods and false gods, is it safe to conclude that all mentions of the one God of Israel are in fact Jesus Christ’s God ? This is not a question which a Trinitarian can reasonably answer as “No.” But if he answers “Yes,” he must accept the contradictions with his own doctrine. If you are a Trinitarian, you must insist that your Triune God and Jesus Christ’s God are the very same God. Otherwise you have two or more God’s on your hands. But you won’t be making any sense since a one-person-God and a three-person-God are obviously not the same God. Jesus Christ’s God is not a Triune God in Trinitarianism, therefore, his God is obviously not the same God as the Trinitarian God. So since there is only one God, and not two or more, the Trinitarian is compelled to agree that all mentions of God in the Scriptures are references to Jesus Christ’s God. But notice what happens to Trinitarian doctrine if you acknowledge that all references to the one God in the Scriptures are references to Jesus Christ’s God.
To you it was shown that you might know that the LORD, He is God; there is no other besides Him….. Know therefore today, and take it to your heart, that the LORD, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other. Deuteronomy 4:35,39
Is this verse referring to Jesus Christ’s God? Think about his carefully. His God is no one but the Father and to interpret this passage to refer to the Father would mean that the Father is exclusively the one God and the one God is no one else but the Father. That rules out the Trinity since two other persons are also God in the doctrine of the Trinity. Because of this, Trinitarians are forced to interpret this verse to refer to the Triune Being. “He” the Triune Being is God and there is no other besides “Him” the Triune Being. However, the Trinitarian must then insist this passage is NOT referring to Jesus Christ’s God. And that puts him in a very serious dilemma. There is only one God and no one can reasonably and honestly avoid interpreting this verse to be referring to Jesus Christ’s God. And his God is most definitely not the Trinitarian’s Triune God. Whether a Trinitarian acknowledges or denies this passage is referring to Jesus Christ’s God, he is caught in a contradiction with respect to his own doctrine. This demonstrates that the Trinity is most certainly false.
To you it was shown that you might know that [Jesus Christ’s God], He is God; there is no other besides [Jesus Christ’s God]….. Know therefore today, and take it to your heart, that [Jesus Christ’s God], He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other. Deuteronomy 4:35,39
No one can deny this verse is referring to Jesus Christ’s God without getting caught in an inescapable contradiction. And if this verse is referring to Jesus Christ’s God then it is referring to the Father alone and the verse is telling us that only the Father is God and nobody else is God except the Father. And no one can reasonably say that this verse is not referring to Jesus Christ’s God since that would be resorting to completely irrational behavior. But Trinitarians do claim this verse is referring to a God which is not Jesus Christ’s God, namely, the Trinity. However, there is only one God and if that God is not Jesus Christ’s God then Jesus Christ has a false God. But we know that Jesus does not have a false God; his God is the only true God and the only true God is his God. Hence, the Bible affirms that only Jesus Christ’s God is God and nobody else. There are numerous other examples in Scripture which illustrate the same type of thing. With respect to Trinitarian doctrine, the passage is either referring to Jesus Christ’s God or the Triune Being and you can’t have it both ways since Jesus Christ’s God is not a Triune Being. So which is it? Can anyone in their right mind deny that the above verse is referring to Jesus Christ’s God? There are numerous passages which illustrate the same problem for Trinitarian doctrine.
Additionally, when you read verses such as Matthew 1:23, “God with us” you will also realize that such verses are also necessarily referring to Jesus Christ’s God . God the Father was with Israel by giving them Jesus to save them from their sins (context). He was with them in plan and purpose; He was with them, on their side. This understanding is also confirmed at Isaiah 7-8 where the child Immanuel is given as a sign to King Ahaz that his God, Yahweh, was with him concerning the two kings attacking Judah. Or for example when Thomas says, “My Lord and my God,” you will realize the words “my God” are necessarily a reference to Jesus Christ’s God, since both Thomas and Jesus have the same one God. This is also clearly explained by Jesus at John 12:44-45 and 14:5-10. Jesus revealed the Father (Jn 1:18) who is his God. Or again, at 1 John 5:20 the true God in view is Jesus Christ’s God, the Father. This is obviously true since the point of this passage is to say that Jesus came so that we might know the true God by being in the true God’s son and that true God is necessarily Jesus Christ’s God. Just as Jesus himself declared, his God and Father is our God and Father (Jn 20:17).
The only true God is Jesus Christ’s God, and since there is only one God, this cannot be denied by any rational and honest person who accepts the Scriptures as the truth. This simple fact demonstrates to reasonable people that the doctrine of the Trinity is obviously false. Whenever you read your Bible, and the one God is mentioned, just ask yourself whether the passage is referring to Jesus Christ’s God. You will soon realize that you cannot truthfully answer “No” without creating an unresolvable contradiction for yourself. And that means that claiming the existence of a Triune God conflicts with the Scriptural facts and when claims conflict with the facts, we know the claimant is a telling lie. Another thing you can do is to keep this in mind when you are discussing the doctrine of the Trinity with Trinitarians (or Modalists). Whenever they refer to God, and they don’t seem to be referring to the Father, ask them if they are referring to Jesus Christ’s God. Also observe their confused responses. They are not accustomed to being asked such a question or even having such a thought.
If you are an honest seeker of the truth, I would encourage you to always keep in mind that the only true God of the Scriptures is necessarily Jesus Christ’s God. This is inescapable. Since there is only one God, the only true God can’t be someone else’s God since that would necessarily amount to another God. So whenever you read a passage of Scripture which mentions our God, the God of Israel, the Creator, just ask yourself, “Does this passage necessarily refer to Jesus Christ’s God?” You will soon see that you must always answer “Yes.” And when you do this, you will also clearly realize that you will know with absolute certainly, and without any hesitation, that the only God is Jesus Christ’s God and no one else can possibly be God than his God. And seeing this clearly, you will know this leaves the Trinity doctrine behind in the trash bin along with all the other false Gods which true followers of Jesus have left behind.
If you can’t confess that every mention of the one God of Israel in the Scriptures is Jesus Christ’s God you will be found mired in your own contradictions. And if you are a Trinitarian who confesses that every mention of the one God of Israel in the Scriptures IS Jesus Christ’s God, you will still be found mired in your own contradictions. And that is what happens when you espouse a tangled web of lies. There is no escape from your dilemma and your only option will be to resort to irrational mental gymnastics in the fantasy that there must be some way you can somehow talk your way out of it. But you can’t. You are trapped in your own lies with no way out but to confess your claims are false.
As you read this, and digest the implications, you might wonder how it could be so easy to demonstrate why this doctrine is certainly false and why you didn’t see this before. But as you contemplate the matter and how the only God cannot be any other than Jesus Christ’s God, you will indeed realize this does show the Trinity is obviously false. And then you will likely also have other realizations. You will realize the utter insanity of having a three-person-God which is not your Lord’s God. And again, you will also wonder how anyone could believe the Head of the body of Christ has a one-person-God while the rest of the body of Christ has a three-person-God who is not the God of the Head of the body of Christ.
The God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. Ephesians 1:17.
The only God is our Lord’s God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is God and there is no other but Him. Serve only our Lord’s God and no other.
