Oneness and Trinity

Sir Lancelot's picture

Hola, everybody! I'm Lance, and I'm a new member to this place. I just kind of joined because I was reading some of the forum topics and wanted to be a part of it. I think it's fitting that I start with this topic, since my ideas and beliefs sort of conflict with some other Christians.

Let me start by saying that I believe that there is one God, who was the same in the past as He is today as He will be forever. I do attend a Pentecostal church, and do believe much of the doctrine, but I am by no means "Pentecostal." Nope, simply Christian, one who is not perfect, but strives to be perfect by setting Jesus Christ as my prime example. I do not believe that he is the "2nd person in the trinity," but He is, in fact, God. He wrapped Himself in flesh and gave himself up as a living sacrifice to atone for the sins of humanity, simply because He wanted to be closer to His creation and have a personal relationship with Him. As He put so fluently in John 8:58, "I tell you the truth,...before Abraham was born, I am!"

To start things off, I'll give you all this piece of Scripture, Deuteronomy 6:4-5: "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." Jesus also said the same thing in Matthew 22, Mark 12, and Luke 10. I encourage you all to read these scriptures.

Anyway, I look forward to everyones comments!
