What’s wrong with Oneness Pentecostalism?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USMFRcJ7X5w The Bible teaches that God exists in multiple Persons. Gen 19:24 Then the Lord (Yahweh) rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord (Yahweh) out of the heavens. Both Persons have the name Yahweh. Gen 3: 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. The phrase “one of us” makes no sense if God is only one Person. John 1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Two distinct Persons referred to as God. Matt 3:16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove…

There is no God because God would never allow suffering

God
https://youtu.be/Ar4LfuOtrmI Who is responsible for suffering? We must first bear in mind that it is not God, but rather sin that is responsible for the suffering in the world. Before man sinned, everything was in a perfect state. Man sinned and as a result death and suffering came into the world. Romans 5:12 (NIV) Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned­­. When sin entered the world, the evil spirits could wreck havoc in the world in terms of what we think of as “natural” disasters. Other natural disasters could also be due to man’s irresponsible action towards the environment. For example, Jesus rebuked the storm. (Mat 8:24-26 NIV)  Without warning, a…

Christian “Trinity” Explained in 3 Minutes

God
https://youtu.be/AQkFlzFJ3kA In the Trinity there is said to be three distinct persons the Father Son and Holy Spirit and each of the persons is fully God. Now stopping there it would appear that Christians actually worship three gods. However nowhere in the Bible or Christian tradition does the Trinitarian concept become a "tri-theism" meaning three gods. God has always declared as one which turns this doctrine into quite a mind bender. The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit are sent to share one nature but the father is not the same person as the son who is not the same person as the Holy Spirit who is not the same person as the Father. There are three distinct persons in one substance essence or nature. Chronicles of Narnia author…

Why is the God of the Old Testament different from the God of the New Testament?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHutQ04SSbs Today’s question is, “Why is God so different in the Old Testament than He is in the New Testament?” In this video I’ll answer that question from a biblical perspective. At the very heart of this question lies a fundamental misunderstanding of what both the Old and New Testaments reveal about the nature of God. Another way of expressing this same basic thought is when people say, “The God of the Old Testament is a God of wrath while the God of the New Testament is a God of love.” The fact that the Bible is God’s progressive revelation of Himself to us through historical events and through His relationship with people throughout history might contribute to misconceptions about what God is like in the Old Testament as compared…

Why does God allow natural disasters?

God
https://youtu.be/iNp7tARkEjw Well they were talking about natural disasters, things like hurricanes, floods, earthquakes. Why does God allow something. Like he could stop it, why does he allow it to happen? Well let's just start because it's so interesting whenever these things hit insurance companies, what do they call this? They they say we don't insure against acts of God. Isn't this shame that we we blame god for hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters that happen? Well let me just start by saying this. Let's acknowledge a few things. There was a flood in genesis 7 that covered the whole earth. That was an act of God for sure. There was an earthquake in numbers 16 that affected the sons of Korah. That was an act of God for sure.…

How can a loving God send someone to hell?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7n99WNb87M How can a God of love send people to hell? How many of you have heard this one? Now here's the interesting thing. People have a hard time with the idea of a God of love sending people to hell but yet they do believe there is a hell. Most people believe in a hell. Having said that most people don't believe they're going to hell. They think their neighbors may be going but they don't think they're going. And I think the reason we all believe in a hell even before we're even Christians is because we want to somehow believe that somewhere there is a final Court of Arbitration out there for those that perhaps have escaped the long arm of the law. We know that there…

Is the Christian concept of God wrong?

God
https://youtu.be/sdWX6sw8IAw Description of God using poetic language Muslims say that Christians have an imperfect understanding of God. God is portrayed more like a human being than an Almighty being. These misunderstandings arise because one does not understand the poetry of the Jewish language. Not true that Biblical writers do not have the right concept of God It is not true that the Biblical writers have a limited understanding of God. The Biblical writers had a correct understanding of God. God is portrayed as being all powerful… (Jeremiah 32:17)  “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm.

Is the doctrine of trinity illogical?

God
https://youtu.be/rC7UEQ1laRs Muslims and Christians have many common stories about the prophets but our understanding of God is quite different. What do you mean by that? Muslims believe that there is only one God and we should not believe that there are three gods. We have a verse in the Quran in which God said, "They have certainly disbelieved who say Allah is the third of three." That's right. We must not believe in three gods. Christians also believe that there is only one God. The Bible says, "hear o Israel the Lord our God the Lord is one." Is that so? I thought Christians believe that God is a Trinity? Yes, we believe that God is a Trinity but we don't believe that there are three gods. What then is…

How can God have a son?

God
https://youtu.be/lQp-TI0QQy8 I am interested to know more about Christianity but there are just some things that I find hard to understand. I wonder if you could help me with them. Sure let me know what you have difficulty in. I may not have all the answers but I will try my best to help. What is it you are struggling with? For example, Christians refer to Jesus as God's son. What I don't understand is this: How is it possible for God to have a son? Isn't that attributing human characteristics to God? It is true Christians refer to Jesus as God's son. But when we say that, we are not saying that God took Mary as a wife and as a result of a physical relationship this son Jesus…

What does the Bible teach about the oneness of God

God
https://youtu.be/pQIRnDGfbtI We know that God declares that he is one. It is interesting to note however that in Deuteronomy chapter 6 verse 4 where God says, "hear o Israel the Lord your God is one" that the word usage is very important. The word Lord is in the Hebrew "Yahweh". It means the Creator God or the great I am, the ultimate reality, God Himself. The Lord your God, the word "God" in Hebrew is "Elohim". It actually is the plural of El which means "Gods". "The Lord your Gods is but one" is how it would literally read is but one. Hear o Israel, the great "I am" who exists in the plural is but one. The word "one" in Hebrew is "Echad". The theological word book of the…
