How can there be three equal Gods and yet there be only one God?

If there are three Gods, “equal in power and in glory,” as the catechisms declare, then it is untrue to say there is only one God. Yet St. Paul writes, “there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things,” 1 Corinthians 8:6. Jesus declared, “the Father is greater I,” John 14:28. The Father [...]

If Father, Son and Holy Spirit and all equally one God, does this mean God died when Christ was crucified? Surely this contradicts the triune Godhead.

Yes, it does contradict the trinity. The man, Jesus, died on the cross. Our Father God is everlasting (Isaiah 40:28) and eternal (Deuteronomy 33:27). He cannot die. God and Jesus are two distinct beings.​ Jesus shows He is one in purpose and spirit with God by His prayer in John 17:2. “That they all may [...]

Was Jesus created by God or always next to God?

The following scriptures are used by the apostle John to describe the relationship between God and Jesus:   Jesus is called the “only begotten Son” of God in John 1:18, John 3:16, 18, and 1 John 4:9. The most accurate, word-for-word translations of the Bible translate Strong’s word G3439, μονογενής or monogenēs, as “only begotten [...]

Before Jesus was born on Earth, he was fully spirit with God. After his resurrection, Jesus has an immortal body. Question, can Jesus ever be only spirit like before his incarnation?

When Jesus was with God prior to becoming a human being, He was the Logos or “Word.” He was a perfect spirit being, but not immortal, or of the divine nature. He was the first and only begotten son of God (John 3:16 KJV).  The Apostle Paul explains in 1 Corinthians 15, that there are spirit beings [...]

Is the Holy Spirit a force of God or a Person with purpose?

The holy spirit is God’s great power which He uses to accomplish His purposes. In the Old Testament, God used his power to create the world and all the living plants and animals. “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters,” Genesis 1:2.  God also used it to perform miracles for [...]

Is Jesus God or a messenger of God?

Jesus is the “only begotten Son of God,” John 3:18. He is “the firstborn of all creation,” Colossians 1:15 (NASB). In the beginning in heaven, God named His son the Word. God is the Almighty Father and He is the designer and director of all creation. His Son, the Word, had the joy and privilege [...]

What is the Godhead?

The term/noun “Godhead” (Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9) was introduced by John Wycliffe when he translated the Bible into English (1395). John Tyndale in his latter translation (1525) used “Godhead” in Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20 and Colossians 2:9. The Greek text, however, contains three slightly different words, where Tyndale uses only one term, “Godhead.” Theologians have [...]
