Question: As an Apostolic Pentecostal believer, I fully support the answer given because numerous scriptures have revealed the ONENESS and NOT 'threeness' of God. The doctrine of the trinity is a doctrine of error because it would have man to believe there are three god's yet there is ONE God. There is a scripture which says that Christ is the image of the INVISIBLE God and seeing as we cannot see a spirit, the scripture says God is a spirit, and they that worship Him must do so in spirit and in truth. Jesus is simply the man image of God, but He is NOT another individual. When we hear the phrase Jesus is Godís son, it simply means that Jesus came OUT of God as if a son from a man, but Jesus IS the image of the invisible God, and IS GOD.

Answer: Thank you for your comments. We agree that Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God and not a second person in the Godhead (Colossians 1:15). We believe that in Him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:8-9).

Most trinitarians would not agree with you that the trinity teaches three gods. Virtually all trinitarians believe in one God who exists as three persons. Obviously, this begs the question: what is the difference between a 'divine person' and a god? But nevertheless, you will only engender strife by telling trinitarians that they believe in three gods. Nearly all will vehemently deny this. Better to ask them, what is God's name? Then show them that the name of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit is Jesus. Three divine ministries, but one God with one name!
