Why is the Jesus Only Movement Wrong?

jan15, Jesus at the last supperThough God is one, as many scriptures attest, we can easily see how errant the “Jesus Only” doctrine is through the scriptures. Even in the Old Testament, as I pointed out earlier, we read where the Ancient of Days met the Son of Man. Jesus also took on that title to show that it referred to him in his incarnation.

One case of him adopting that title is in Matthew 9:6 (KJV) which reads, “But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.” Christ said this to Pharisees who condemned him for blasphemy.

Another point against Modalism and the “Jesus Only” folks is that Christ kept telling his disciples to pray to the Father. Look at what John 14:16 (KJV) says. “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for eve

r;” What? Was Jesus praying to himself?

 

Furthermore, Jesus would have been a ventriloquist, and a really good one, if the¬†following verse meant Jesus and God were the same person. John 12:28 (KJV) records him as saying, “‘Father, glorify thy name.’ Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, ‘I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.'”

The best proof of thejan15b, scale, ancient Trinity is recorded at Christ’s baptism. Matthew 3:16 (BBE) says, “And Jesus, having been given baptism, straight away went up from the water; and, the heavens opening, he saw the Spirit of God coming down on him as a dove; And a voice came out of heaven, saying, ‘This is my dearly loved Son, with whom I am well pleased.'”

I could write so much more on this subject but I’ll save it for my next book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? Many people think their denominational affiliation will save them. But the scriptures show that it’s by faith we are saved and no human works can atone for sins.

Trinity Vs. Supposed Sin of Shirk?

jul6Continuing on with this month’s topic, I need to show that God is triune and not a single deity. The best place to start is at Christ’s baptism.

Matthew 3:13-17 (KJV) describes the scene this way. “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, ‘I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?’ And Jesus answering said unto him, ‘Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.’ Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, ‘This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.'”

Now how could God be a singular entity when the Spirit of God and Jesus were in the same place when God spoke from heaven?

Likewise, God spoke from heaven in John 12:28 (KJV). “‘Father, glorify thy name.’ Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, ‘I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.'”jul6a

But Qu’ran 4:116 says, “Allah will not forgive that partners be associated with Him; but will forgive anything less than that, to whomever He wills. Anyone who ascribes partners to Allah has strayed into far error.”

Also, how could the Old Testament address God in the plural form (read Genesis chapter one) and show himself to be a triune being in the New Testament, yet the Qu’ran claims he has no partners? If God and Allah were the same being, he himself would be guilty of the sin of shirk, ascribing partners to himself.

I’ll be wrijul6bting more about this in my next book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? Foolish Christians believe that God and Allah are the same but I’ve shown here without equivocation that they aren’t.
