Is Jesus Co-equal With God?

Believing in the Trinity means accepting the notion that Jesus is co-equal with the Father. We  think this is really stretching things and distorts scripture just like what happens when you stretch a balloon out of its natural shape. The trinitarian dogma that God is three co-equal persons is a horrible distortion of Biblical truth. The dogma we have inherited insists that God is not one divine person at all! C.S. Lewis said it this way, “We must remind ourselves that Christian theology does not believe God to be a person.” I would suggest instead that we must remind ourselves that this kind of thinking is radically anti-biblical.

Has Scripture Been Stretched and Distorted?

Scripture has been stretched and distorted to create the illusion that God is a single essence comprised of three persons… “one what in three whos” whatever that is supposed to mean. The truth that there is one God has been altered to a new belief that there is one essence which is a drastic change indeed. Among its many problems this doctrine is completely unintelligible when you look at it closely. One notable theologian has acknowledged “We may have to admit that we don’t really know in what way God is one and in what different way He is three.” On the other hand, “We speak that we do know and testify that we have seen…” (John 3:11) There is one divine person we call God the Father and Jesus Christ is His supernaturally conceived and resurrected Son. Simple enough to understand along with being absolutely and utterly biblical.

Jesus Said, “My Father is Greater than I.”

The man Christ Jesus made it abundantly clear to His disciples that “My Father is greater than I…” (John 14:28) and that He (Jesus) said and did only what He had been taught by His Father. For example: “Of my own self I can do nothing…” (John 5:30) Believing that Jesus is co-equal with the Father overrules the words of Jesus Himself and we don’t think that’s a very good idea. If you have accepted the notion that Jesus is co-equal with the Father you might want to reconsider. For your own sake please do.

PS: This isn’t hard to understand! The only reason it seems difficult is because our vision has been clouded and our hearing has been dulled by the archaic creeds and dogmas that still afflict the church. Be brave dear friend! Read the scriptures for yourself. See what Jesus said with your own eyes. Hear His words with your own ears. You’ll be glad you did. God Bless.
