Trinity Deniers – God in Three Parts Not Three Persons | Refuted by Trinitarian Jesse Morrell

IS GOD THREE PERSONS OR MERELY ONE PERSON WITH THREE PARTS?

– 
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” 1 John 5:7
There are those today who deny that One God is THREE PERSONS, and instead teach that God is ONE PERSON with THREE PARTS – Spirit, Soul, and Body. Just like man. They say “The Trinity is a Pagan Idol” from the Roman Catholic Church.  
 –
However, if God being “three” was the same as us – Spirit, Soul, and Body, the Scriptures that speak of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as distinct persons, with distinct wills of personality, make no sense.
 –
They say the Father is the Soul, the Spirit is the Holy Spirit, and the Body is Jesus. (The Bible says Jesus is the Word actually).
 –
But if that is all it is – One person with a Spirit, Soul, and Body, then we should be able to have the same type of interaction with ourselves that we see God having in the Bible.
 –
“This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” Can your soul say that to your body?
 –
Jesus said of the Holy Spirit, “when He is come,” meaning the Holy Spirit wasn’t yet there. So what was Jesus in their view, a soulless spiritless body?
 –
The Holy Spirit was spoken of as a distinct person from Jesus, so do you ever speak of your spirit that way?
 –
Jesus said, “If you have seen me you have seen the Father,” but if Jesus is the body and the Father is the soul, if you have seen my body you have seen my soul? Really?
 –
Jesus said if you sin against Him you can be forgiven, but if you sin against the Holy Spirit it will not be forgiven you. This makes perfect sense if Jesus and the Holy Spirit are distinct persons, but no sense at all if they are the same person.
 –
Jesus said, “Not my will but yours be done.” Notice he said “my” and “yours,” which makes sense if the Father and Son are distinct persons, but no sense at all if they are the same person.
 –
In many instances the Bible speaks of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as distinct persons. Yet also, in many passages, speak of each one as being God. Thus the Trinity – One God in Three Persons. That is the biblical “Godhead.”
 –
Such passages are not coherently understood by saying that God is three merely in the sense of a Spirit, Soul, and Body.

The Truth Shall Make You Free by Gordon C. Olson is an absolute essential for any Christian library. It has been said that Gordon C. Olson was the greatest theologian of the 20th Century, and “The Truth Shall Make You Free” was his masterpiece. This is a monumental work of theological literature. To reprint this very important volume is one of the reasons that we even started reprinting books at all. We would like to see this book in the hands of every believer. It is our opinion that “The Truth Shall Make You Free” is one of the greatest theological works of Christian history.

  1. The term “Trinity” just means Tri-Unity. Three Being One, which is what the Scripture says. “These three are one.” In that way, the term Trinity is a perfectly biblical term.

  2. Notice also in the Greek, “these three are one” reads “οὗτοι οἱ τρεῖς ἕν εἰσιν.” It uses the plural article οἱ for “the three,” which is used when speaking of multiple people or a group of people. It means “they” – the three – are one.
