Doesn't Titus 1:4 say there are two persons in Godhead?

Question: How can people say that there is one God when we see in Titus 1:4 the words 'God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ'? This shows that there are two persons, the word 'and' is confusing and if you could please explain in detail?

Answer: When the Bible speaks of God the Father AND the Lord Jesus Christ, it is not indicating that God is two persons; it is instead describing the one God who was manifested in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). Christ is the flesh (or humanity) of God, not another divine being. The Bible says that God is one (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29). It never says that God is two.
