SUMMARY: BLASPHEMY is:

1. Jesus ALWAYS says that He is the SON of God.

2. The Jews claimed
John 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not;
.....but for Blasphemy;
.....and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.


3. Jesus called those who accused Him with blasphemy, BLASPHEMERS.

John 10:36 Say ye of him,
.....WHOM
"Whom" is not the "Father."
.....the
.....Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world,
Thou BLASPHPHEMEST
.....because I said, I am the SON OF GOD
John 10:37 If I do NOT the works of my Father, believe me not.


"I" AM is not MY Father. "I AM is the SON."

Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit--the Word of God, Logos, Regulative Principle
John writes that Antichrist denies the one god the FATHER and one SON Jesus Christ

Blasphemy: Claiming the Baptism of The Holy Spirit. North Boulevard Church of Christ East and West.
The Baptism (overwhelming) of HOLY SPIRIT (No 'the') was promised only to the Apostles in the upper room.  The WIND was the Returned Jesus as Holy Spirit breathing which always produces words: WORD or Logos, the Regulative Principle which outlaws any role other than PREACHING the word by READING the Word in the ONCE A WEEK Day of REST which defines SCHOOL as the way to refresh the HUMAN spirit.

 The Baptism of Fire is reserved for the Viper Race (serpents) including Scribes and Pharisees: Speaking your own Words, singing, playing instruments, drama or anything beyond REST which means A School (only) of Christ (only).

The Abomination of Desolation: first defined as the instrumental-trinitarian worship at Mount Sinai.

When Adam cleaved to his wife that made Adam the inferior: the only examples are with everyone cleaving to God.

1.01.15  A form of a trinity which John identifies as ANTI-Christ was first preached at Freed Hardeman College and first published in 1942 by H. Leo Boles and dispersed by the GA.

  1. --God the father as a separate person
  2. --God the Spirit as a separate person
  3. --God the Son as a separate person. They insert JESUS
  4. --All three people always existed.
  5. --They are all three equal in power although each one has their own talent and their own dispensation.

There is only One God:
1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the man Christ Jesus;
The spirit is the "breath" (to fool the clergy Mat 13) which passes between the ONE GOD as Source and ONE SON as the personified WORD Who articulates invisible breath into audible words.

You will notice that KNOWLEDGE passes between the ONE GOD in heaven and Jesus of Nazareth whom God has made to be both Lord and Christ.

Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man,
        no, not the angels which are in heaven,
        neither the Son, but the Father.

Luke 10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Father:
        and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father;
        and who the Father is, but the Son,
                and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

John 10:15 As the Father knoweth me,
        even so know I the Father:
                 and I lay down my life for the sheep.

John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants;
        for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth:
        but I have called you friends;
        for all things that I have heard of my Father
        I have made known unto you.

2Corinthians 11:31 The God and Father
        of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

1John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
        that we should be called the sons of God:
        therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

JESUS IN HIS POST-GLORIFIED WAS PROMISED AND WAS CALLED THE HOLY SPIRIT.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,
        whom the Father will send in my name, [His Name will be Jesus Christ]
        he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance,
        whatsoever I have said unto you. [Christ in Spirit form]
John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away,
        and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice,
        because I said, I go unto the Father:
        for my Father is greater than I.
John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass,
        that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you:
        for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father;
        and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
Jesus returned to the Father of all spirits and received His Holy Spirit state as promised.  God elevated Jesus of Nazareth to be the sole king, priests and teacher of HIS heavenly kingdom operating invisibly in the physical world as School (only).
Acts 2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted,
       
and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost,
        HE hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens:
        but he saith himself,
        The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        that God
        hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
        both Lord and Christ.
Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this,
        they were pricked in their heart,
        and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles,
        Men and brethren, what shall we do?
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father,
        and the Father in me?
        the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:
        but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me:
        or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, t
        he works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;
        because I go unto my Father.
John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name,
        that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.  conditional
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father,
        and he shall give you another Comforter, [allos different in form: not heteros]
        that he may abide with you for ever;
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth;
        whom the world cannot receive,
        because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
        but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
John 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more;
        but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father,
        and ye in me, and I in you.
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them,
        he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father,
         and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

The LORD JESUS manifested Himself to Paul as Spirit. This is the same promise of Holy Spirit guidance promised to the original apostles.

Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet:
        for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose,
        to make thee a minister and a witness
        both of these things which thou hast seen,
        and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
THE SAME JOHN WARNED AGAINST THOSE WHO CANNOT READ BLACK TEXT ON BROWN PAPER AND HAVE NOT SEEN THE HOLY SPIRIT AS JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS WHO HAS ALL OF THE POWER CLAIMED FOR THE FATHER, MOTHER AND LITTLE SON IN ALL PAGAN TRIADS.

1John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?
John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? 
Which is the same as: Which is the same as:
He is ANTICHRIST that denieth the
  
Father [one God]
   and
   the Son. [one Lord]
he thathath seen me hath seen the Father;
[Christ, who is the image of God 2 Cor 4:4]
and HOW sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 
1 John 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son

hethat acknowledgeth the Son 
the same hath not the Father:

hath the Father also
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am IN the Father, and the Father IN me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth IN me, he doeth the works.

Jack Cottrell, The Holy Spirit's Work in Conversion "Traditional, orthodox Christian faith says Jesus Christ is not only equal with the Father; he is also distinct from the Father in that he is a separate, distinct person, i.e., a separate center of consciousness with his own distinct thoughts, emotions, and actions."  NO ORTHODOX TRINITARIAN TAUGHT THAT.  There is ONE GOD and ONE LORD Jesus as the Christ. The "tri-nature" where Paul compared God's Spirit to our spirit is father, son and spirit: not God, Jesus and the spirit person (people)

John Mark Hicks Trinity as "Necessary" fact in Alexander Campbell's Christian System

1. ASSERTION: H. Leo Boles was the first person in history who, in 1938 at FHC, taught that the Godhead is three, separated persons (people) able to hold meetings and decide what to do.  John Mark Hicks at LU calls God "three centers of consciousness able to commune with one another.

2. CHALLENGE: a reader called my attention to the views of David Lipscomb. These views were written by J.W.McGarvey who defined SPIRIT as PERSONALITY as indeed all historic literature does.  "He has a nasty spirit" means that he has a nasty personality. I reviewd this request at this link.

3. t clear that neither he nor any Restoration Movement teacher believed that the Spirit OF Christ speaks to any person except through His Word.

DANGER: either out of delusion or using psychological violence claim that the SPIRIT told them that the music (noise) of the cursed sacrificial system was God COMMANDING INSTRUMENTAL PRAISE and WE MUST NOT DISOBEY this direct command.   This is THE WAY for Satan to deceive people and Peter outlawed private interpretation or further expounding as the MARK of a false teacher.


1. Denying the undeniable Shema to defend the trinity.
     
1A Jehovah denies the trinity.
2. The Old Testament and the trinity.
3. Jesus and the Dove Parable The feminist and effeminate hostile takeover.

WE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD REPUDIATES A "TRIAD" OF GODS NECESSARY IN ALL PAGANISM

Plato, Theaetetus 189e
Socrates  Excellent. And do you define thought as I do?Thaetetus

How do you define it?

Socrates   As the talk [logon] which the soul has with itself about any subjects which it considers. You must not suppose that I know this that I am declaring to you. But the soul, as the image presents itself to me, when it thinks, is merely conversing with itself, asking itself questions and answering,
Psukhe A. life, spirit, III. the immaterial and immortal soul IV. the conscious self or personality as centre of emotions, desires, and affections pneuma
[190a] affirming and denying. When it has arrived at a decision, whether slowly or with a sudden bound, and is at last agreed, and is not in doubt, we call that its opinion; and so I define forming opinion as talking and opinion as talk which has been held, not with someone else, nor yet aloud, but in silence with oneself. How do you define it?

Theaetetus
In the same way.

Socrates
Then whenever a man has an opinion that one thing is another,
        he says to himself, WE believe, that the one thing is the other.

Plato, Sophist 263e Stranger

Well, then, thought and speech are the same; only the former, which is a silent inner conversation of the soul with itself, has been given the special name of thought. Is not that true?

Theaetetus. Certainly.
Stranger. But the stream
        that flows from the soul
        in vocal utterance through the mouth
        has the name of speech? [Logos]

[264a] Stranger
Now when this arises in the soul silently by way of thought, can you give it any other name than opinion?

Theaetetus
Certainly not.

Stranger
And when such a condition is brought about in anyone, not independently, but through sensation, can it properly be called anything but seeming, or fancy?

Theaetetus
No.

Stranger
Then since speech, as we found, is true and false, and we saw that thought is conversation of the soul with itself, and opinion is the final result of thought,

BACKGROUND to latest Gospel Advocate defending the Trinity:

When the musical change agents launched their attack, the RIGHT wing was left naked and without defense because there was no attempt to study the Torah in context or to do the intensive research of  Babylonian and other religionism. Moses repudiated a trinity by describing a nation falling into musical idolatry at Mount Sinai as the worship of the Egyptian TRINITY under the real bull calf, Apis, and the golden image.  
Ex. 32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods [elohiym], which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. 
God turned the nation over to "worship the starry host" and sentenced them to return to Babylon, Moses wrote the Torah to defend the people against Babylonianism including their triads. If Moses even hinted or implied a "trinity" then he could not be inspired or history literate. Stephen quoted Amos who would point to Sin, Ishtar and Molech as the musical idolatry "rocked" on.

We advanced our thesis in 1980 because it was clear that no Tennessee college prepared preachers to understand that Mount Sinai Event. We began posting in 1997 when the locals under Jubilee began using the cursed Monarchy as authority for "musical praise" along with worshiping the three NAMES of God.  

The TRIADS were common to ALL pagans. This is the reason Harvey Floyd wrote that Jehovah must be a trinity. Church fathers note that the "trinity" was a Greek philosophy before it was adopted by the church to fight Arius: even then, no trinitarian defends the modern tritheism. Nor do the Restoration Movement leaders. Amos, Isaiah and Stephen in Acts 7 repudiates the claim of God's spiritual need for the Temple and blamed the Law.  

Review of The Gospel Advocate, January 2008, page 18, Earl D. Edwards, Director of graduate studies at Freed-hardeman eewwards@fhu.edu.  

1. THE SHEMA IS THE FOUNDATION OF BEING A CHRISTIAN: DON'T BREAK IT.

Edwards quotes the Shema and suggests that the Jews might not have thought of ONE GOD but that one or echad can mean more than one but united in purpose.  This was the view of H. Leo Boles at David Lipscomb which was first published in 1942. This became the doctrine of those churches under the influence of the Gospel Advocate. There, the Godhead is something like a "committee" and are ONE meaning that they are on friendly terms.  This was the outcome of Lectures at Freed Hardeman College in 1938. Boles has THEM ranked 1, 2 and 3.

Edwards notes that God had assured Isreal that "the Lord is our God, the Lord is one" (Deuteronomy 6:4 NASB).  But what does he include in the term "God" (Yahweh) in this passage? Does he affirm a "numberical oneness of God contradictory to the Christian view of the Trinity," as Earl Kalland notes many Jews would believe?

Because the Trinity is several centuries removed from Jesus Christ and no classical trinitarian needs or permits three PERSONS, wouldn't it be better to say that the TRINITY contradicts the ONENESS?

God here is Elohim: the Lord is YHWH; Jehovah is never triplets. The point is that even Moses was made an elohim and there were many things called "gods" but only Jehovah (Lord) is a TRUE God or ruler of the universe. But, maybe trinity can be squeezed back into the One Lord!

Neither God nor Moses nor schoolboy who they did not know how to say: OUR Lord is the One and Only God.  If God had wanted to say, "I Am One" how would He say it so as not to be ambiguous?

Edwards of "ONE not restricted to ONE" says: Not necessarily, because, as Gary Hall states, the Hebrew translated "one" (echad) "is ambiguous." It an mean either a oneness that expresses unity, or it can mean uniqueness" (Deuteronomy, college Press, 2000, 136).

That would be true only in speaking of ONE OF A GROUP: the One is still unique.
Echad (h259)
1) one (number) 
       a) one (number)
       b) each, every
       c) a certain
       d) an (indefinite article)
       e) only, once, once for all
       f) one...another, the one...the other, one after another, one by one
       g) first
       h) eleven 
Otherwise, ONE WIFE might mean TWO or THREE wives? Three reeds in in a bundle make ONE BUNDLE. It is not said that Jehovah is a bunch of gods but just the opposite as we will ee.

Gen 4:19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one [was] Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

Lamech had ONE harem but they were not the same: each was still one woman.
Edwards says that Kalland gives examples (Exodus 26:6, 11; Ezekiel 36)
Ex. 26:11 And thou shalt make fifty taches of brass, and put the taches into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one.

Taches are plural but the tent is just ONE tent.  If you take one stick and join it to another (echad) then it shall become one whole (echad) in mine hand.  Each stick is one stick and they become joined or one in God's hand.

2Sam. 2:25 And the children of Benjamin gathered themselves together after Abner, and became one troop, and stood on the top of an hill.
Edwards: Therefore, Deuteronomy 6:4 does not necessarily deny the Trinity, but, also, it doesn't affirm.

If words have any meaning, the Shema denies the Trinity which was the polytheism the Shema was given to gurad against--with little luck.

Declare what is to be, present it--let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, who declared it from the distant past?

Was it not I, the LORD? (Jehovah)
And there is no God (Elohim) apart from me, a righteous (1) God and a (2) Savior; there is none but me. Isaiah 45:21

Unus A.In gen., one, a single. C. Private, un official, a private person, a private citizen (post-class.):

Jehovah is Lord, Savior, High Tower and Rock; a Rock is no God.

Is. 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
Is. 45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, t
        hat there is none beside me.
        I am the LORD, and there is none else.
Is. 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil:
        I the LORD do all these things.

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Isaiah 46:9 (There could be no co-equal gods with Him)

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Isaiah 46:10

Zech. 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth:
        in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
Mal. 2:10 Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us?
        why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

Mark 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth:
        for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

G1520 heis hice (Including the neuter [etc.] ἕν hen ); a primary numeral; one:

Mark 12:33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices
Mark 12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly,
        he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.
        And no man after that durst ask him any question.
Mark 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple,
        How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?
Mark 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost,
        The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
        till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Mark 12:37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord;
        and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
1Cor. 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father;
        when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
1Cor. 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1Cor. 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
1Cor. 15:27 For he hath put all things under his feet.
        But when he saith, all things are put under him,
        it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth,
        (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him;
        and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

It was because of the musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity at Mount Sinai that God took away The Book of The Covenant of Grace. He turned them over to worship the starry host (trinities) and came with a firey law as The Book of The Law.  A primary object of the Law was to guard a lawless tribe from joining the trinity band in Canaan. At the same time God sentenced them to return to Babylon because they would NOT cease their polytheism and neither will the overwhelming majority even now.

There are many gods but only one Lord God: no one ever thought that Jehovah was made up of three persons.

THE SHEMA

Dt 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD [YHWH] our God  [Elohiym] is one LORD:

Dt 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD [YHWH] thy God [Elohiym] with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Dt 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
Dt 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, 
        and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, 
        and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Dt 6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

Dt 6:9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

Jesus confirmed the Shema to permit only ONE god:
Mark 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together,
        and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him,
        Which is the first commandment of all?

Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him,
        The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
        and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:
        this is the first commandment.
Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
        There is none other commandment greater than these.
There is only ONE God.  Full credit of the fulness of the godhead bodily must be ascribed to Jesus of Nazareth for our teaching, practices, Comfort and Intercession.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
        both Lord and Christ.
Jesus of Nazareth did not exist until he was born as the Seed of Abraham. The Son in the beginning was the WORD the One God spake to create the universe.  That Word was SPOKEN though Jesus of Nazareth who did not speak on His own.

No Scribe could possibly think that Jehoval was three persons!  No Jew and no Muslim can be other than hostile to polytheism.


Because "god" or elohim and theos can identify false gods--
God g2316 Theos 1) a god or goddess, a general name of deities or divinities, a) God's representative or viceregent. 1) of magistrates and judges --

And because it took THREE gods to make the usual pagan trinity, If Jesus permitted a "trinity" in the original Shema, then He is saying that there are three GODS.  But, that would make Jesus and Moses liers.

Acts 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Mark 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth:
        for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
Heis (g1520) a cardinal number, one, in opposition to many.
Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters [kurios]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

None other means none other. He means He and not they. Him means Him: you cannot love TWO Kurios or Lords.
Mark 12:33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding,
        and with all the soul, and with all the strength,
        and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

Mark 12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him,
        Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.
        And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Because Jesus is the head of the church and king of the kingdom, you cannot give just part of the authority to the SON and be very close to the kingdom.  Most divison comes from people hearing the Spirit apart from Christ to whom the Spirit belongs. 

Dt 11:17 And then the LORD'S [YHWH] wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD [YHWH] giveth you.

Dt 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul,   
        and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.

1.A JEHOVAH DENIES THE TRINITY.

Why work so hard to deprive your children of the blessings of the Lord who is ONE? when Jehovah has worked so hard to make sure that we cannot be mistaken:
Jer 10:10 But the Lord (Jehovah) is the
[1] true (Elohim) God, he is the
[2] living God (Elohim) , and an
[3] everlasting king (ascends the throne):
at his
wrath the earth shall tremble,
        and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation
       [Israel had become a NATION]

Jeremiah 10:11Thus shall ye say unto them,
        The
gods (not true,  Elah h426))
         t
hat have not made the heavens and the earth,
         even they shall perish from the earth,
         and from under these heavens. 

Jeremiah 10:12 He hath made the earth by his
        [1] power, he hath established the world by his
        [2] wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his
        [3] discretion[intelligence, argument, reason, mentality]

His Word created all thing in the same way that God used his power, wisdom and discretion to create the world. But, these were not 'additional persons.'  This is the definition of The Christ OF God Who laid aside His full majesty and Glory AS God to dwell in "a body prepared for Me" to give us our only image of the invisible Deity:

1 Cor. 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,
          who of God is made unto us
          wisdom, and
          righteousness, and
          sanctification, and
          redemption:

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of glory, may give unto you the
        spirit OF wisdom and
        [spirit OF revelation in the
        [spirit OF] knowledge of him: Ep.1:17
Jeremiah.10:13 When he
        [1] thunders, the waters in the heavens
        [2] roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
             He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the
        [3] wind (spirit) from his storehouses. Jeremiah.10:13

Owcar (h214) o-tsaw'; from 686; a depository: - armory, cellar, garner, store (-house), treasure (-house) (-y). 

The Lord (Jehovah) shall open unto thee his good treasure,
        the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season,
        and to bless all the work of thine hand:
        and thou shalt lend unto many nations,
        and thou shalt not borrow. De.28:12

Declare what is to be, present it--let them take counsel together.
        Who foretold this long ago,
        who declared it from the distant past?

Was it not I, the LORD? (Jehovah)
        And there is no God (Elohim) apart from me,
        a righteous God (Elohim)
        and a Savior;
        there is none but me. Isaiah 45:21 
Edward's next quote is from a commentary and does not address any Biblical passage in context:

2. THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE TRINITY

        "Warfield says "when the Old Testament as a whole is studied to see if it speaks of the Trinity, one "may fairly see hints of and underlying implication of it" ("Trinity," International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, 1939)   
        Warfield notes that one such sign is found in Isaiah 61:1."
(NOTE.--In this article the author has usually given his own renderings of original passages, and not those of any particular version--EDITORS.)
To the contray the Old Testament goes to extremes to guard against seeing Him as the elohim: rather He is Jehovah the ONLY true elohim.

Earl Edwards quotes this passage and notes that "seven centuries later, Christ quoted these words and applied them to himself as the Messiah (cf. Luke 4:21). But was Christ saying that Isaiah was quoting Him (Christ), or was He only a typological fulfillment of Isaiah's words?
       "Edward Young, in commenting on Isaiah 61:1, adds there "is a notable contrast between Spirit at the beginning of the first clause and me at the close of the second, and in each clause the Lord is mentioned. This is a Trinitarian shade that should not be overlooked" (NIV Commentary)
Luke 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.
        And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
        because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;
        he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
        and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luke 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Luke 4:20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down.
        And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
Luke 4:21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Before we get to Isaiah 61 we should look at Isaiah 11 to define the meaning of the Spirit OF God. In fact, Isaiah says there are seven SPIRITS of God like the flickering lamps on the branch of the Menorah in the Holy Place:

AND there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: Isaiah 11:1

And the spirit OF the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit OF wisdom and [OF] understanding, the spirit OF counsel and [OF] might, the spirit OF knowledge and OF the fear of the Lord; Isaiah 11:2

And shall make him of quick understanding [SPIRITUAL] in the fear of the Lord:
You will see that this can be divided into several parts: first, the promise of a BRANCH growing out of the Jesse and the Spirit OF God would rest upon Messiah to provide Him (Jesus of Nazareth) with these seven SPIRIT from God all related to forms of Divine knowledge.  Secondly, He will not rule based on what He sees you doing but by the Word OF God.  Jesus will say that He would not judge, but His Words--which He called SPIRIT and Life (John 6:63) would be their judge.
and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes,
neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: Isaiah 11:3
Father, Son and Spirit are of common expressions: Jesus of Nazareth OWNED the economical roles of Father who is iN Me and the Spirit which had been WITH the Apostles.  However, God, His Breath and His articulated Word do not constitute three separated persons each with their own spirit.

       In fact, if the above is the correct deduction, then all three persons of the Trinity are mentioned here, around 700 BC.  However, though such seems likely according to this writer, it is not a certain conclusion in this Old Testament passage.

So far, the best Jehovah the elohim of those in the Bible can only hint, sign, imply or shade the trinity.  On the other hand the Bible is fill with statements such as "there is no god besides me." There was no one with me.

1 Peter 1:11 and Revelation 19:10 notes that it was the Spirit OF Christ which spoke through the prophets.  Because there is only one Spirit, when God provided a Visual Aid to John and others it was the Father (thought) of the Words of the Son and it was the Breath (Spirit) OF God speaking through Jesus of Nazareth now affirmed as speaking FOR the One God Who always had His Word and Wisdom with Him.  

Furthermore, no historic trinitarian ever used the word "person" but personae and repudiated the notion that the personae of the Godhead were ever "separated." 

Let's play Back to the Bible and look at Isaiah: 

Isa 61:1 THE Spirit OF the Lord God is upon me; 
        because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;
        he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to
        proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

The Spirit OF the Lord which rests UPON His agent means that He speaks the very WORDS of the Lord Whose Spirit is providing the words.
John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not:
        for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words,
        hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken,
        the same shall judge him in the last day.
John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself;
        but the Father which sent me,
        he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
John 12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
        whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.


John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?
        the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:
        but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father,
        and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive,
        because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
        but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you


THAT IS BECASE THE ANOTHER COMFORTER IS NAMED JESUS

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

You know that Jesus of Nazareth Who IS the Holly Spirit Comforter by this superntual sign because.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.


The Comforter is silenced by preaching, singing and playing instruments in violation of all of the direct commands.

Rom. 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
        that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

In both Hebrew and Greek the words for "spirit" speak of the mental disposition or the mind of someone or some thing.  "He had a nasty spirit" does not mean in any ancient literature that he was twins or triplets.

Now, look at the fulfilment--but not so fast. First, look at:

Luke 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass,
        that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
Luke 3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him,
        and a voice came from heaven, which said,
        Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 

The Spirit OF God is not another God person: Paul will say in 1 Corinthians 2 that
The Holy Spirit
        Is to God
What our spirit
        is to us.
Then says, "but WE have the MIND of Christ.

Philippians 2 proves that the MIND was that of Christ who diminished Himself to become a mortal man--a "body prepared for me." When Jesus came back from "fully preaching baptism" by fulfilling all righteousness, he was also FILLED with the Words of the Father.

In a lesser sense we are baptized we receive A holy spirit or A good conscience which to us means that we can read black text on white paper. This is confirmed by Paul in 2 Corinthians 3.

John 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent
.......... speaketh the words of God:
.......... for God giveth not the Spirit
.......... by measure unto him.

This is a parallelism: Speaking the Words of God is the meaning of Spirit without measure. Jesus said My WORDS are SPIRIT and they are LIFE.  Jesus as the "son" never spoke on His own but what he heard from the "Father within." Father, Son and Spirit are not names.

Is.59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord;
.......... My spirit that is upon thee,
.......... and my words which I have put in thy mouth,

shall not depart out of thy mouth,
nor out of the
mouth of thy seed,
nor out of the mouth of thy
seeds seed,
saith the Lord,
from henceforth and for ever.

Pr 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

Pr.1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold,
.......... I will pour out my spirit unto you,
.......... I will make known my words unto you.

Therefore, the man Jesus of Nazareth was ready to be the Living Word or Son of God.

Luke 4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan,
        and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
Luke 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing:
        and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
Luke 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
        command this stone that it be made bread.
Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written,
        That man shall not live by bread alone,
        but by every word of God
3. JESUS AND THE DOVE PARABLES--The hostile feminist and effeminate takeover.

Jesus said that truth had been hidden from the foundation of the world in parables.  He never spoke to the masses without using parables. Some of them were acted or contained information--as did the Shema--to keep us from worshiping triads of which the Mother Of Harlots (Revelation 18) assumed the superior position.

This is a warning against Gnosticism. Sophia or Wisdom is the feminist (effeminate) superior of Jesus and even of Jehovah. She is known as the SEREPNT. Her daughter, Zoe or Eve, is the female instructing principle, mediator and know as THE BEAST. Click for the details.

Then the female spiritual principle came in the snake, the instructor; and it taught them, saying, "What did he say to you? Was it, 'From every tree in the garden shall you eat; yet - from the tree of recognizing good and evil do not eat'?"

The carnal woman said, "Not only did he say 'Do not eat', but even 'Do not touch it; for the day you eat from it, with death you are going to die.'"

And the snake, the instructor, said, "With death you shall not die; for it was out of jealousy that he said this to you. Rather your eyes shall open and you shall come to be like gods, recognizing evil and good."

And the female instructing principle was taken away from the snake, and she left it behind, merely a thing of the earth.

WOMEN IN THE CHURCH: Reclaiming the Ideal, Carroll D. Osburn

"Feminist hermeneutics stands over against patriarchal hermeneutics" its goal achieved

"by small, often unnoticed acts of subversion. Numerous such incremental changes, like erosion, will eventually bring down the fortress " ( p. 32).

He says,

"Paul's arguments carried weight in his day even though they may not necessarily be convincing by today's standards" (p. 135).

Rubel Shelly and John York: John: Or do we read these texts in terms of Paul seeking to insure that the people of Corinth and Ephesus are not prevented from seeing Jesus because males and females in the church are behaving in bizarre ways?

And if indeed the latter is true (i.e., that these texts were intended to illustrate how first-century Christians should behave in ways that would not compromise their witness to world),

what happens today when in our cultural context our worship assemblies are experienced as male-only events?

Jesus did not give a baptismal formula but made it clear that HE had all of the authority which would be summarized in the pagan "father, son and spirit" or as the Catholics really adopt a Babylonian or Egyptian trinit, "Father, Mother and infant Son."  When Israel repudiate the covenant of Grace and rose up in musical idolatry of the Egyptian Trinity it was Osiris, Isis and Hathor or other triads.  The primary Babylonian triad was Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis (Mother goddess); or Shamash, Sin and Ishtar (Mother goddess)

According to the Chaldean doctrine, Semiramis, the wife of Ninus or Nimrod, when exalted to divinity under the name of the Queen of Heaven, came, as we have seen, to be worshipped as Juno, the "Dove"--in other words, the Holy Spirit incarnate.

Now, the Holy Ghost was idolatrously worshipped in Babylon under the form of a "Dove." Under the same form, and with equal idolatry, the Holy Ghost is worshipped in Rome. Hislop

The TRINITY denies that Jesus of Nazareth was God revealing Himself to the extent humans can see the invisible.

John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

Matt. 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

In Revelation 17 it will be the Mother of Harlots ruling the end-time religion as it returns to mother goddess (Zoe) worship. This is marked by effeminate preaching, singing and using the same musical instruments which Lucifer is said to have brought into the garden of Eden.  Personified as the king/queen of Tyre she is called "the singing and harp-playing prostitute."

In Revelation 17 she uses the "lusted after fruits" or religious performers whom John called sorcerers who HAD deceived the whole world (Rev 18).

Therefore, it was important to make clear that God is a FATHER and not a mother, the one who builds His Name is a SON and not a daughter and His worship will be devoted to the Spirit OF truth in God's Word.

3A. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND NOT A "PERSON"


The Spirit OF God is not another God person: Paul will say in 1 Corinthians 2 that
The Holy Spirit
        Is to God
What our spirit
        is to us.
Then says, "but WE have the MIND of Christ.

Philippians 2 proves that the MIND was that of Christ who diminished Himself to become a mortal man--a "body prepared for me." When Jesus came back from "fully preaching baptism" by fulfilling all righteousness, he was also FILLED with the Words of the Father.

In a lesser sense we are baptized we receive A holy spirit or A good conscience which to us means that we can read black text on white paper. This is confirmed by Paul in 2 Corinthians 3.

John 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent
.......... speaketh the words of God:
.......... for God giveth not the Spirit
.......... by measure unto him.

This is a parallelism: Speaking the Words of God is the meaning of Spirit without measure. Jesus said My WORDS are SPIRIT and they are LIFE.  Jesus as the "son" never spoke on His own but what he heard from the "Father within." Father, Son and Spirit are not names.

Is.59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord;
.......... My spirit that is upon thee,
.......... and my words which I have put in thy mouth,

shall not depart out of thy mouth,
nor out of the
mouth of thy seed,
nor out of the mouth of thy
seeds seed,
saith the Lord,
from henceforth and for ever.

Pr 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

Pr.1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold,
.......... I will pour out my spirit unto you,
.......... I will make known my words unto you.

Therefore, the man Jesus of Nazareth was ready to be the Living Word or Son of God.
Luke 4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan,
        and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

Luke 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing:
        and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
Luke 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
        command this stone that it be made bread.
Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written,
        That man shall not live by bread alone,
        but by every word of God

It was later in the Synagogue where Jesus went to preach from the WORD of God:

Luke 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.
        And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

Luke 4:18 The Spirit OF the Lord is upon me,
        because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;
        he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
        and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luke 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Luke 4:20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down.
        And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
Luke 4:21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
When the visual aid rested UPON Jesus of Nazareth we do not have another god person inside of Him. Rather, He is filled with the Words of God. Didn't Paul draw a parallelism for the NOT singing passages between being "filled with the Spirit" and using "the Words of Christ?"

4. THE BAPTISMAL FORMULA

Earl Edwards writes quoting Carson saying that "individually" such texts similar to Matthew 28:19 do not prove the doctrine of the Trinity but "contributing evidence makes it difficult to deny the presence of Trinitarian thought in the NT documents:
        (1) the frequency of the God-Christ-Spirit formulas;
In ALL of the salutations there are just two actors in whose name the epistles were written:
God the Father
And Jesus the Lord: God made Jesus of Nazareth to be both Lord and Christ.
        (2) their context and use: it is impossible for instance, to image baptism into the nameof God, Christ, and the elect angels;
Baptism is in the NAME of Father, Son and Spirit: Peter therefore baptized in the NAME Jesus Christ.
1Tim. 5:21 I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
        (3) the recognition by NT writers that the attributes of Yahweh may be compresively applied ot Jesus and,
        so far as we have evidence, to the Spirit."


When three things are equal to one another you do not assume that there are three things. Rather, if Jesus is the prophesied Jehovah- Saves prophesied in the Bible you assume that Jesus FULFILLED as an Image of the invisible all that God wants us to know about the invisible and unknowable.  If the "Spirit" is said to do so many things then we should grasp that the "another Comforter" bears the name "Jesus Christ the Righteous." 

In the so-called Baptismal Formula--not used by Peter--Jesus clearly stated that what we think of as Father, Son and Spirit were all made visible and audible in Jesus of Nazareth. That is to teach us not to look for guidance "beyond the sacred page" or beyond what God wanted to teach in the form of a lowly human.

THAT THIS IS NOT A TRINITARIAN FORMULA TO DIMINISH JESUS THE CHRIST:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: Luke 24:46
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:19
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in HIS name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:47

The Christ of God took on the form of a human, Jesus of Nazareth [Philippians 2].  To deny that Full Deity dwelled in Him is to ask for the charge of anti-Christ. Because we can know nothing about God unless He reveals Himself. The Christ of God is the Image of the invisible, God's Word, His Righteousness and all that he bestows on human kind. As Son He said that the Father was within and that the Spirit had been with the Apostles to the extent that He was present.  That is because the classical trinitarian view is that the SON is the WORD of the Singular God when He speaks forth so we can hear Him.

Name: Jesus or Jehovah-Saves Patriarchal Not Matriarchal

Father Not a mother [Sophia]
God or Full Deity as: Son Logos Not a daughter. [Zoe]

Holy Spirit Not performers but the Word.

THE name (singular) of Father, Son and spirit is Jesus Christ. If ALL power in HEAVEN and EARTH is vested in JESUS CHRIST then HOW MUCH POWER is left over for a PERSON named "the Father" and another person named "The Holy Spirit"?

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matt 28:18

Power is:

Ecousia (g1849) ex-oo-see'-ah; from 1832 (in the sense of ability); privilege, i.e. (subj.) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (obj.) mastery (concr. magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence: - authority, jurisdiction, liberty, power, right, strength.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name (singular) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:19

Name is:

Onoma (g3686) on'-om-ah; from a presumed der. of the base of 1097 (comp. 3685); a "name" (lit. or fig.) [authority, character]: - called, (/ sur-) name (-d).

The Greek ONOMA or name stands "for all that a name implies, of authority, character, rank, majesty, power, excellence... of everything that the name covers" (Vine, Name, p. 782)

5. EVERYONE WAS BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

Baptizing in three names on behalf of three "persons" also gave rise to the dogma of the trinity of persons. However, 

"The nearest approach to a formal announcement of the doctrine of the Trinity which is recorded from Our Lord's lips, or, perhaps we may say, which is to be found in the whole compass of the NT, has been preserved for us, not by John, but by one of the synoptists. It too, however, is only incidentally introduced, and has for its main object something very different from formulating the doctrine of the Trinity. It is embodied in the great commission which the resurrected Lord gave His disciples to be their 'marching orders even unto the end of the world.' (Int Std Bible Ency., p. 3017)

"It does not say, 'In the names [plural] of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost"; nor yet 'In the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Ghost,'

as if we had to deal with three separate Beings. (Int Std Bible Ency., p. 3017)

Neither Father, Son or Holy Spirit is a name of God. According to Zechariah His Name would be Jesus or Joshua which means Jehovah-Saves.

And Paul said

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Col 2:9

To baptize in the NAMES of a trinity would denny that the fullness of God dwell in Jesus of Nazareth who was "a body prepared for Me."

Therefore, Paul and the rest of the New Testament baptizes in the name of Jesus Christ. This was continued for many years when three NAMES demanded three BAPTISMS.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

Jesus or Jehovah-- Saves (Joshua in Zechariah) is the name of the SON. The "Father" is named Jehovah-- Righted 

The Jews: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for (in order to) the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

The Samaritans: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Acts 8:16

The Gentiles: And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Acts 10:48 (not lords)

Those baptized after Pentecost: When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 19:5

Apostle Paul: And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16 [This is the clear proof that the "pastor" has no authority to pronounce but Paul was to call on the name consistent with Proselyte baptism]

And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. Ac.22:8

I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. Ac.26:9

Romans 6: Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Romans 6:3

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4

Corinthians: Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 1 Corinthians 1:13

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11

Galatians: For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Galatians 3:27

James: Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? James 2:7

6. BUT, DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?

Earl Edwards, FHU and the GA ask whether it is important?
In 2 Corinthians 11:4, Paul describes those false teachers who preach "another Jesus whom we have not preached." 
2Cor. 11:1 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.
2Cor. 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy:
        for I have espoused you to one husband,
        that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

Watch out that polygamy thing when you speak of being married to three god persons.
In Galatians 1:6-8, he speaks forthrightly against thosee who preach "a different gospel: which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. but even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed."

You must not miss Paul's salutations which like all others identiy only two actors:
Gal. 1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man,
        but by Jesus Christ,
        and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
Gal. 1:2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
Gal. 1:3 Grace be to you and peace
        from God the Father,
        and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Gal. 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world,
            according to the will of God and our Father:
Gal. 1:5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

The post-resurrrection Jesus of Nazareth as the SPIRIT LORD appeared to Paul and let Him hear His voice to qualify him to be an apostle to be guided into all truth. There is no Spirit person other than Jesus christ.
Gal. 1:11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
Gal. 1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

That is the Holy Spirit OF Christ appeared to Paul.
Gal. 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,
Gal. 1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood

When God the Father reveals His Word He BREATHES and people like Paul hears WORDS.  There is no mediating "spirit person" between the Father and the Son.

Earl Edwards, Clearly, for the inspired Paul, any distortion of God's message is serious. to preach a Jesus who is not divine or a Holy Spirit who is not a person or a God who is not in three persons is to preach "another god" who is not the God of the Bible. Such teaching does, indeed matter.

If you add a Holy Spirit as A God to the One God out father, you have ANOTHER GOD.

Of interest is that Bible scholars are aware that Paul never speaks of The Holy Spirit as ANOTHER person separated from the Christ or God to Whom the Spirit belongs.  The Spirit is almost always the Spirit OF something (anger) or someone: she has a nasty spirit does not mean that she has another "person" either inside or outside

As far as I can determine the views of H. Leo Boles first published in 1942 is the first time in history that anyone ever suggested that the Godhead consisted of three persons so described by Boles and different beings with different skills.  

7. ALL OF CHURCH HISTORY CALLS THIS FORM OF TRINITY HERESY.

Paul Tillich

"Baptism was the sacrament of entrance into the church. The baptized person, who at that time, of course, was a pagan adult, had to confess that he would accept the implication of his baptism.

Then he was baptized in the name of Christ.
Later on,
the names of God the Father and the Spirit were added.
As
yet there were no accompanying explanations; this was faith and liturgy, not yet theology." (Tillich, p. 18-19)

"This God is never called a person.  The word person was never applied to God in the Middle ages.  The reason for this is that the three members of the Godhead were called personae (faces or countenances): The Father is persona, the Son is persona, and the Spirit is persona. Persona here means a special characteristic of the divine ground, expressing itself in an independent hypostasis.  Thus, we can say that it was the nineteenth century which made God into a person, with the result that the greatness of the classical idea of God was destroyed by this way of speaking... but to speak of God as a person would have been heretical for the Middle Ages; it would have been to them a Unitarian heresy, because it would have conflicted with the statement that God has three personae, three expressions of his being. (Tillich, Paul, A History of Christian Thought, p. 190)

"The Spirit accompanies the divine Word of the Father, just as the breath (Greek, pneuma; Latin, spiritus) accompanies the word spoken by a man.  The three persons do not exist side by side in the divine world.  We can compare them to the presence of different fields of knowledge in the mind of an individual: philosophy may be different from medicine, but it does not inhabit a separate sphere of consciousness. The different sciences pervade one another, fill the whole mind and yet remain distinct. (A History of God, Karen Armstrong, p. 117)

By the [1] word of the [2] LORD the heavens were made, and all their host by the [3] breath (h7307 spirit) of his mouth. Ps.33:6
He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle; he put the deeps in storehouses. Psa 33:7
Let all the earth fear the LORD, let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him! Ps 33:8

For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood forth. Ps 33:9 

Because we are made in the image of God we have different expressions but Adam was not created as triplets:

May (1) God himself, the (2) God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of (3) our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Th.5:23

Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: God appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory. 1Ti.3:16
