In other words, God is not a single, isolated person, as unitarian forms of theism like Islam hold; rather God is a plurality of persons, as the Christian doctrine of the Trinity affirms. On the unitarian view God is a person who does not give Himself away essentially in love for another; He is focused essentially only on Himself. Trinitarian Universalism is a variant of belief in universal salvation, the belief that every person will be saved, that also held the Christian belief in Trinitarianism (as opposed to, or contrasted with, liberal Unitarianism which is more usually associated with Unitarian Universalism).It was particularly associated with an ex-Methodist New England minister, John Murray, and after his death.
If the trinitarian passages in the New Testament can be reduced to a mere handful, it would have been much more clear to devote a chapter to each of those passages, or to devote a chapter to each separate book of the New Testament where trinitarian passages occur, rather than to have everything mixed up, thrown together, and repeated over and over/5. Under this view, Paul, believing that the world would soon end, took it as a corollary that all earthly concerns, including sex, should hold little interest for Christians. Paul's letters show far greater concern with sexual issues than the gospel writers attributed to Jesus, since Paul was building Christian communities over decades and.

[What follows is a lively exchange between a former “Biblical Unitarian” (the belief in one God, and that Jesus is not “God the Son,” but the Son of God) who has now become a Trinitarian (the belief in a “three-in-one” God), and the authors of our book, One God & One Lord: Reconsidering the Cornerstone of the Christian make it available as a brief glimpse into the debate.

For many non-Christians, the idea of a 3-in-1 God is very confusing and unbiblical. Take, for example, Jews and Muslims.
Both are monotheistic, which means they believe in “one” God. Most of them won’t even consider believing in a God that exists in “three persons,” because they reason that 1 + 1 + 1 does not equal one God. Anthony Buzzard's Book. On July 3,I was sent a link to a then free Kindle edition Anthony Buzzard's book, Jesus Was Not a Trinitarian.
While Anthony Buzzard is correct that Jesus was not a trinitarian, unlike Anthony Buzzard, Jesus was also not unitarian. Anthony Buzzard holds to a unitarian view of the Godhead. The second benefit of this book is a deeper understanding of John Owen's unique contributions to Trinitarian spirituality.
This is the real focus of the book, of course, and Kay doesn't disappoint the reader in providing fresh and insightful analysis of Owen's work/5(4). In summary, the Roman Catholic Church produced the doctrine of the Trinity and became the judge of what is truth or heresy for over a thousand years.
The Trinitarian book, Heresy, has a reasonable explanation of this occurrence, “ What determines whether a set of ideas is heretical or not is whether those ideas are approved and adopted by those who happen to be in power.
The question therefore is not monotheism, but whether Trinitarian or Unitarian monotheism is true. The Bible and Monotheism. Without doubt, the Old and New Testaments affirm monotheism (Deuteronomy ; Mark ), but not the Unitarian monotheism of the Quran.
Unitarian monotheism is foreign to the Christian Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments. Many scriptures are used to establish a Unitarian position, check the following: Jesus was created. Colossians (NIV). The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. The Church could just as easily have had a Unitarian rather than a Trinitarian creed, but politics, in the end, were the decisive factor.
Dogma and power won out, not the Bible. Had the non-Trinitarians been more successful in courting the emperor's favor everything would have been different. While the uncompromising theological monotheism at the heart of Christian Unitarianism distinguishes it from the major Christian denominations which subscribe to Trinitarian theology, Christian Unitarianism is closer to the monotheistic understandings of God in Judaism, as well as the concept of the oneness of God in Islam.
Trinitarian worship is experienced in all the parts of a Christian worship service. When the early church assembled together, “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts ).
There are different ways to approach the meaning of John 1: without accepting that Jesus Christ preexisted his human birth. Although we will draw the conclusion and submit there is but one God and Father, and one Lord Jesus Christ, our hope in this split presentation is to suggest an alternative explanation with very little if any change in the traditional translation.
Further, some trinitarian proof texts (e.g., 1 John ) are later interpolations, while others have been mistranslated (e.g., the application of personal pronouns to the holy spirit). Some make a detailed case that New Testament era and early patristic Christianity was in some sense unitarian (Clarke Scripture; Lamson ; Priestley History.
Trinitarian worship In chapter one, JB contrasts "Trinitarian worship" with what he calls "unitarian worship." He emphasizes that Trinitarian worship is all about Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, who through his high priestly ministry, grants humanity the "gift of participating through the Spirit" in his own "communion with the Father.".
Defending Trinitarian Christianity. Written by: And yet there is an amazing absence of the word Trinity in many otherwise sound books on apologetics. In fact, some very strong Trinitarians through the years seem to pass right over the doctrine.
Today the American church faces pantheism on the one side and Unitarian Islam on the other. The very word "Trinity" is made up of two terms - "tri" and "unity. The doctrine travels the middle road between the two, and neither can be allowed to predominate the other.
Trinitarians have but one God - the charge of polytheism or tritheism leveled at the orthodox position ignores the very real emphasis, drawn from the Biblical witness to.
In particular, they found no warrant for the doctrine of the Trinity accepted by other Christian churches. Universalism as a religious movement developed from the influences of radical Pietism in the 18th century and dissent in the Baptist and Congregational churches from predestinarian views that only a small number, the elect, will be saved.
UNITARIAN CHRISTIANITY by William Ellery Channing Delivered at the Ordination of Rev. Jared Sparks in The First Independent Church of Baltimore on May 5, 1 Thes.
"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." There are two natural divisions under which my thoughts will be arranged. Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Manhattan, Kansas It took years of participating in and even leading UU congregations for me to re-discover the value of Jesus in my spiritual life.
When I first came to Unitarian Universalism, I felt relief that I didn’t have to know what I believed about God or prayer or Christianity. Nontrinitarian Christians with Arian or Semi-Arian views contend that the weight of scriptural evidence supports Subordinationism, the Son's total submission to the Father, and God's paternal supremacy over the Son in every aspect.
More importantly, they share their theological views, though not their respective conclusions necessarily, in common with Jews, Christians and Muslims.
Read the Dixon/Taylor debate here. I have included at the end of this article three video debate links between Unitarian and Trinitarian and their mutually shared, sheer, utter futility.

Navigating as a Biblical Unitarian in a Trinitarian World All Souls Unitar views. Modern Trinitarian heresies followed in the same path as the ancient ones. They once again fumbled with a “false conception of the Trinity, the self-contained God of Scripture.” The issues may have changed over time, but the problem was perennial.
In Calvin’s day, the biblical doctrine of the Trinity was distorted by Arminius, who—again.In he seceded from the Anglican Communion, organized the following year a Unitarian congregation in London, and in built the Essex Street chapel. About the same time anti-Trinitarian views were spread by the scientist Joseph Priestley, pastor of a congregation at Leeds () and later at Birmingham.
