The Existence of God The Bible does not debate the question of whether or not God exists. Rather, the Scriptures present God in the very first verses of Genesis as the Creator, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. ). The first and primary evidence for the existence of God is the existence of the creation. Through the prophet Isaiah, God proclaims that His "righteousness [which is defined by His law] shall not be abolished" (Isa. ). Thus, His Law stands forever. Other passages demonstrating the unity of Scripture can be found in Psalm where nearly every verse declares the greatness and truth of God's Word and confirms what Jesus said.   In contrast, the Trinity is a God who has a knowable nature revealed in Scripture. God is holy (Lev. ), good (Mark ), and loving (1 John ). These are not mere adjectives inserted in the text to describe how God sometimes behaves; these words appeal to who and what God is.   The International Theological Commission, following studies carried out over the past five-year period (–), has drawn up a new document entitled: "God, the Trinity, and the Unity of Humanity: Christian Monotheism and its Opposition to Violence".

God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Three-in-one. Or are they each separate. This is the question that has been causing great debate for many, many centuries, since the 4 th century in fact.

One cannot deny the fact that these three are truly remarkable, but do they form a threefold Godhead, with each part being co-equal and co-eternal.

“There is no God but one” (1 Corinthians ). God is a compound unity. God is a compound rather than an absolute unity.

There are plenty of places in scripture where God is speaking in the plural:Author: Dr. Gary Linton. In fact, to distance themselves from the Catholic version of the trinity, many Protestant leaders from the 19th century preferred the more biblical term “Godhead” when referring to the triune God.

However, just because an apostate church believes in the trinity, or any other doctrine for that matter, does not automatically make it unbiblical. The Unity and Trinity of God. Lesson 3 from the Baltimore Cathechism «prev: next» Is there only one God.

Yes, there is only one God. I am the Lord, and there is none else: there is no God besides me. (Isaiah ) How many Persons are there in God. In God there are three Divine Persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

“The Catholic faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity. Neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the substance.

For there is one person of the father another of the son and another of the holy ghost. But the Godhead of the father, of the son and of the holy ghost is all one, the glory equal the majesty co.

That is clearly a false equation. The term Trinity describes a relationship not of three gods, but of one God who is three persons. Trinity does not mean tritheism, that is, that there are three beings who together are God.

When discussing how writings were to be considered canonical, it is important to note that the church leaders were merely putting together a list of those books that were already thought of as Scripture.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory (1 Timothy ).

And the catholic faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity. The majority of the Athanasian Creed is spent clearly outlining the relationship of the three persons of the Trinity.

We see several statements of the three persons’ distinctiveness: 7 Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Spirit. A doctrine is a propositional entity; God is a concrete object, so obviously the Trinity isn't identical to a doctrine.
