To Trinitarians: Unitarian Thought

"I and my father are one" they like to say.

I can cancel that out real fast by quoting where Yeshua says "The Father is greater than I".

I. "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind." [Matthew 22:37]

Are they of one mind? No.

II. "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." [Matthew 24:36]

If they are one, then they are of one will, correct? No.

III. "Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done." [Luke 22:42]

If they are one, that means Yeshua is not subordinate to the Father? No.

IV. "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." [John 5:30]

What about John 1 where the Logos is called God?

Doesn't the Scripture say that God is love?

Using the reflexive rule, if God = Love then Love is God. But that is not what the epistle teaches. Rather it teaches that God is a set of which love is a subset. God { love, y, z

Love is constituent part of God's nature.

Here in John 1 where the Logos is described is God, applying this same rule, we see that the Logos is not God Himself, as love is not a god, but a constituent part of God, then we see the Logos as being a constituent part.

The Logos is the mind of God. This Logos indwells the Son so that the Son, Logos indwelling is apart of God, as, "...I am in the Father, and the Father in me..." (John 14:11). A circumscribed square cannot be bounded by that same square so in light of foregoing principles we see that the Logos indwelling is that Word and that Mind that Yeshua speaks of in John 14:10 "...the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works..."

Therefore the Holy Spirit indwelling us asks us in the spirit of the epistles to be "conformed to the image of [the] Son" in the same way He has conformed to the image of His father by the indwelling of the Logos.

To recap, the Logos is the mind of God, the creative Word itself that is the circumscribed square bounded by that square and refers back to said oneness.

That oneness that Trinitarians speak of is a unity of spirit, not of personality as point I-IV show. Distinct personalities Yeshua subordinate to an all-powerful God.

  1. I do not type as fast as John, and therefore use fewer words. Jesus meant that He and HIS FATHER are in agreement. GOD created math. There is no way for Jesus to be equal with GOD and GOD being greater at the same time. When Jesus went to pray in the mountains, was he praying to Himself/
