Let's talk Grammar and Trinity

Let's talk grammar and Trinity vs Godhead vs Modalism

In recent I came across this video by Edward Pfenniger about the Trinity.  Link below:


Please see my comments on the video:

Ed, let's go ahead and delve into some English grammar here.  Amen!

If you want to teach the Trinity then We Saints are also 3 persons, and so are the unregenerate people as well. (see my study on Godhead  vs Trinity  vs Modalism)


Yes, using personal pronouns clearly as one of many examples is:

Ephesians 2:6 King James Version (KJV)

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

"US" is the first PERSON  plural object pronoun. Clearly we are created in the image of the Godhead. Genesis 1:26, 27.
 
Interesting to note we are also IN Jesus Christ...
The reason Godhead teachers like myself are opposed to the Vatican catechism of Trinity is because it's pagan and not scripture. Trinity is a twisting of  persons to mean 3 separate persons walking around in 2 human form graven images and 1 graven image dove). They even confused me with the word  Triune (3 in 1 which frankly we cannot see or describe by persons because of semantics ). From Brother Philip's teaching I've been most aware that Sematology is key in understanding why some Saints are stuck into the term Trinity and use complex terms to describe Godhead.  Bryan Denlinger is teaching  Godhead as actually Trinity.   It's quite insane.  He believes Jesus Christ does not possess a soul but rather communicates with the Soul of God the Father in Heaven and in the end all come back together again after being separated. In reality the Godhead is Spirit and complete in 1. The only visible part is our kinsman redeemer Jesus Christ.  Ephesians 2:9.
I've recently found this Brother's teaching of Godhead which is the best I've found yet

People don't do their research. Some Christian still do not understand that the word A  Spirit in John 4:24 is the exact same word for Soul in Greek and the reason the KJV translation is Spirit is because of proper context. The Spirit and The Soul operate in the unseen Spiritual realm. It won't be until we are in our glorified bodies that we like John saw The Godhead in Revelation 4.
For a thorough understanding of a bible based study on Spirit, Soul. and Body please study Watchman Nee "The Spiritual Man" 1968 Edition.  (later editions have been corrupted by newage publisher).

1 JOHN 5:7 KJV

Looking closely at 1 John 5:5-8 KJV using context we see clearly the biblical truth of 3 witnesses bear record as one witness - or in other words - 3 bear witness in one accord that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We have to look in the context of verses 5 - 8 to see that in accordance with Deuteronomy 17:6 KJV and Matthew 18:16 KJV etc. Jesus Christ is the Son of God and The Spirit bears witness of this. In heaven 3 bear witness of this and on earth 3 bear witness of this. Verse 7 proves Jesus is the Visible image of God and possesses the Holy Spirit to witness He is come as the Son of God. Verse 8 proves Jesus Christ came to earth as the Son of God by Spirit - Water - Blood and all of these are a testimony of this truth. Amen!

Now looking at the grammar we can see the neuter ev - hen used instead of the masculine adjective: Εἷς heis. (εἷς, μία, ἕν are the three genders (male, female, neutral respectively) of the ancient Greek word. In modern Greek we say ένας, μία ένα. ) .

This would be like telling someone we of one (neuter/neutral designation of one) accord in agreement VS we exist as the one and the same person (masculine or feminine depending on gender of the subject person) in agreement.

strongs 3754 ὅτι - For (conjunction ) τρεῖς - three (subject - nominative masculine adjective ) εἰσιν - there are (verb, present ind. 3rd person plural) μαρτυροῦντες, bearing testimony (verb pres part subj masc pl) - - - οὗτοι - these (dem pronoun - subject masc plural) τρεῖς - three (subject - nom masc adj) ἕν - hen - one (Adj Accus. Neuter Sing) εἰσι - are (verb 3rd pers plural)

Strong's Greek: 1520. εἷς (heis) -- one (biblehub.com)

I am looking for a concise explanation of HEN and HEIS - Ask Greek (learn-greek-online.com)

Take a look at a more detailed exegesis - THE GRAMMAR of “one” in the Greek - why 1 John 5:7 does not prove or even show us the pagan concept of Trinity. LINK

Disclaimer: other than agreeing with their stance against “Trinity” and the correct grammar of the adjective “one” and explaining the usage, I do not endorse or promote the additional comments of this author. “Examingthetrinity”.



Matthew 3:16 and 17 proving Godhead. Let's begin:

Let's begin with the grammar of verse 16:   ... and he (Jesus) saw the Spirit of God (this does not say The Holy Spirit, this says the Spirit of God.  John didn't see this Spirit - Jesus saw it. 

Here the word "Spirit" is a noun in the neuter form. This simply means it is not a "person" distinct but rather following the preposition OF = 

of PREPOSITION: expressing the relationship between a part and a whole --- to whom?   God.  Strongs: G4154 God's Spirit.





And speaking of the Preposition OF -  Let's look at Colossians 1:15 KJV...

Jesus Christ IS (verb to be = exists) The Image (that is LITERALLY) OF

 (Of expresses the relationship of a part of something to its whole.) the invisible God.....


Trinitarians have a major problem here.  They must concede that the King James Bible is using Modalist language here by calling the Spirit of God - God's spirit is NOT separate person but rather a part of the Godhead.  Read it again please.   

   Trinitarians smugly say this is a separate completely autonomous person.  To call the Spirit of God which is PART of the GODHEAD is "blasphemous" To Trinitarians.  Believers in the Godhead and not the Pagan Trinity would have been burned at the stake by the Vatican five hundred years ago.  Now, sadly protestants have adapated this false teaching.    

Yes,... Trinitarians want to call Matthew 3 experience as  the separate PERSON named: The Holy Spirit who - as the Catholics and Many Protestants claim in pictures as a WHITE DOVE.  Look at my study in links below at the Pagan art depicting the Trinity.  Read where God forbids this pagan practice in Acts 17:29 KJV. Read where Paul warns of being spoiled by VAIN IMAGINATIONS and PHILOSOPHY MAN MAN in Colossians 2:8KJV.  

 In Godhead we know that God is Spirit and is invisible.  But here we see Jesus saw - notice nobody else saw the Spirit of God - which proves the divine nature of Jesus Christ existing as the VISIBLE IMAGE OF GOD. 

Let's continue:   ... descending like a dove.   Like = Adverb meaning "in the manner of" or in a "form" of the article (The) - meaning The Spirit of God.  This does NOT SAY  a literal dove landed on Jesus' head, but rather God's spirit became a visible form and rested on Jesus' head. We don't know if this was a very white bright light shaped like a winged image, but it wrong to "assume" what this image was the visible image of The Holy Spirit as a separate Person who is the image of a Dove resting on Jesus. 

Verse 17. And lo a voice from heaven saying...This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 

Here again is perfect proof of NOT the Trinity but the Godhead.  Verse 17 harmonizes with Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:7 KJV and Colossians 1:11-15 KJV and 1 John 5:7 .  Our Heavenly Father by His Spirit is WITNESS to His only begotten Son who is standing before Him and mankind as His visible image.  The Godhead speaking in Genesis 1:26 is not God speaking to the heavenly host of angels because angels were not involved in creation. Amen!

As I have written in studies in links below, if we are created in the image of God, and exist as 3 parts:  SPIRIT, SOUL and BODY.

Part 2 using Preposition and the Preposition OF to defend Godhead and dispel Trinity


 


Part 1 of the Preposition of OF to prove Godhead and Dispel Trinity in Video link above Blog in notes below.

Part 2 of Preposition and the Preposition OF to prove Godhead and Dispel Trinity: Going DEEPER into the Grammar and Context of Scripture.  

As we saw using sound biblical hermeneutics (Context-Grammar-Scripture with Scripture) to include bible history we know that Satan's system going back to the 2nd Century how the early so called church fathers like Tertullian who was of the students of PHILO the reprobate Jew seeking to be a Greek Philosopher who taught the philosophy and corrupt teachings of the Trinity.

Today I want to take a deeper look at the Grammar:   

Let's define a PREPOSITION:   Taken from page 2283 Oxford Compact Dictionary  

Definition:  To Put Before - (specifically in context) used in context as a Part of Speech as an indeclinable (The definition of indeclinable is a grammar term that is a word that must be determined from its context because it does not have anything added to show a grammatical category such as tense, gender, mood or number.) 

Continuing with the meaning of PREPOSITION: A word serving to mark relation between 2 notional (how a particular person is to be comprehended or classified) words the latter of which is usually a substantive (a noun expressing the existence, the essential value of a thing. Its essence. 

It is precisely here we see The Godhead in Colossians 1:15 KJV.  The unseen God is to be comprehended by seeing his appearance as Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the very essence and existence of GOD MADE FLESH.   Or in other words:  God is visible when you see Jesus Christ. 

A Trinitarian would be jumping up and down here with great excitement upon seeing the word: "person".   Only preaching the Godhead and not Trinity I agree here that we are talking about the Person of Jesus Christ who is a PERSON, A HUMAN BEING standing there.  And this is precisely where the Trinitarian falls of the proverbial cliff of Philosophy and Vain Imagination.  They go on to classify God as the "other person" being discussed here. But they fail to understand which preposition we're using and this the Preposition OF....

A more precise definition 'precise'... of the word OF when used as a preposition: Specifically, "OF" used in the context of 1 Colossians 1:15 KJV

Page 1977 Oxford Compact Dictionary

XIII 44: OF = Partitive expression by Possessive Case.  (partitive = of a grammatical construction or case referring to only a part of a whole, for example a slice of cake...) (possessive = something belonging to something).

  OF = whence (from which)  - the origin of being.  A part is expressed by the preceding word... (ex: slice of cake). 

 Expressing origin decent of the source. Classification of the particular. Connotative - Denotative. In the form of;  PART OF BELONGING TO ; INCLUDED IN - PART IN..

I could tell a person who has never seen a cake all day about the concept of cake; i.e., how it smells, how it tastes, what it looks like etc. But it is not until they actually have in their possession the visible appearance of a slice of cake. Seeing the actual cake, the denotation of the cake - they understand what cake is in its unseen connotation. The visual representation - appearance is the actual "Denotation" of the cake.  

THIS IS EXACTLY AS WAS WITNESSED BY John and the other disciples. 

Read 1 John 1:1 KJV

1 John
Chapter 1


Verses 2 and 3 are NOT describing Persons, the MANIFESTATION to mankind was JESUS AS THE IMAGE OF GOD in Verse 2. 


Translation:  We use a preposition to mark the relationship of Jesus Christ to the invisible God. The only "person" here is the Person of Jesus Christ as witnessed as the Visual proof displayed by scripture as follows:

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 2:9 KJV.  A child understands that a Person is a body.  BODILY... BODILY... Please read.

God The Father is NOT an old man sitting on a throne. God the father is not a separate person represented bodily. Again, a person is a body.  This is not an issue of sematology - semantics here people.  In both scripture and in science a body is either a 3-dimensional neuter nominal object OR a living person attributed to humans. The Holy Spirit is not a person. As I explained in part 1, when the Spirit is referenced to "he" as in the Spirit of Truth, we are speaking of Jesus Christ and His Spirit operating. 

For a better understanding of the relationship with Jesus sitting at the right hand of the God and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father - ACTS 2:33 KJV please read:

Answering Trinitarians: What does Christ sitting on the Right Hand of God mean? (thethirdheaventraveler.com)

https://www.thethirdheaventraveler.com/2021/10/come-meet-my-kinsman-redeemer.html

  Jesus Christ is the ONLY person who we see and understand as BODY. Read Colossians 2:9 KJV.  The same goes with the Holy Spirit.  Whenever "he" is used with the Holy Spirit in scripture it is referring directly to Jesus Christ or God who is represented in bodily form as Jesus Christ.  Whenever Spirit is used with the preposition OF it means what we've discussed above. 

Understanding the discipline required by the use of the Preposition "OF "in a Partitive Possessive relationship; i.e., meaning the part expressed to whole we must now look at context and use of the Greek word εἰκὼν (eikōn = IMAGE)

Eikon is used 6 times whereby 2 scriptures in particular fit exactly to Godhead:  2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV and Colossians 1:15 KJV.

Note: - although it is most astounding that man is the image of God in the context of Genesis Chapter 1 verses 26 and 27 note: in our image after our likeness then in verse 27 it is clear CREATED man in his own image which is more profound proof of the Godhead in that we humans do not walk around as 3 separate persons existing in one. See my studies on this in note links below: 

Also, Matthew 22:20 does not fit in context of 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV and Colossians 1:15 KJV because this is literally meaning the visual likeness of a figure as "Caesar is represented on a coin."  Interesting that the KJV always stays true to the precise interpretation of the word IMAGE from the Greek and relies on the work of examining the context and grammar to understand God's word.  However, if you look at the perverted bible translations like the NASB or NIV they change the word IMAGE to LIKENESS in Matthew 24:24 BUT leave you to think image without knowing that in context we need to understand the word APPEARANCE. when comparing the 6 uses of the Greek eikon. And as far as Revelation 13:5 KJV is concerned, this is strictly related to a visual representation in the form of a statue of hologram.

In conclusion:  Here is our example proving Godhead NOT Trinity:

Jesus is the image OF the invisible God.... =   Jesus appears to us as the very existence of God. 

The word image is in relation to invisible God as follows:  The invisible God is the very essence and existence of what you see when you visibly view JESUS Christ.

God does not exist as a separate person but as JESUS CHRIST in the flesh. 


IN PHILIOSOPHY THIS CONCEPT IS USING THE MIND AND INTELLECT TO form a character -relationship outside of Scripture is exactly what Trinitarians practice.  Here is another danger signal for Trinitarians found in 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV that is dealing again with Godhead...

Trinitarians fail to heed this strict warning:

Colossians 2:8

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

King James Version (KJV)


TAKE HEED Trinitarians in accordance with 2 Corinthians 4... KJV

In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, should shine unto them..   

QUESTION TRINITARIAN?  How can you proclaim the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV IF you teach that the glorious gospel of Christ is 1 of 3 separate gods who are really 1 god?  Read Chapter 4 of 2 Corinthians all verses carefully and examine yourself.  

Amen! Maranatha!

Specific  Bible Warnings to Trinitarians



ACTS 17:29  King James Version

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.



20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Read Jeremiah Chapter 44 KJV

JEREMIAH CHAPTER 44 KJV (kingjamesbibleonline.org)

A Trinitarian will howl - Jeremiah 44 has nothing whatsoever to do with this Church age, it does not even remotely discuss The Godhead and issues related.  I contend it most certainly deals with the Root to the heresy of teaching the pagan concept of 3 gods (and they are brazen to even use capital G which is an affront to God - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Study for yourself in connecting the dots - beginning from the Fall of Adam and Eve to the Flood to the Nephilim blood line continuing from the wife of Ham (Noah's son who was involved in sexual relations with Noah's wife - some scholars believe Ham had sexual relations with his father but more accurate or thorough research shows it was with his mother) to was the descendent of Esau to understand why God said He "hated"Esau to NIMROD  The NICOLAITAN to the Queen of Heaven of Egypt and the Baal worship from Carthage.  You'll see that Tertullian hailed from Carthage... you can't make this up .  Continue through your study to the LEAVEN OF THE PHARISEES - including the Chief Priest CAIAPHAS (not in the Levitical priesthood of Aaron but rather appointed by the Roman governor of Judea, Valerius Gratus. Note: Can you imagine? The Jew Priest who charged Jesus wasn't even a legitimate Priest to what God commanded but rather of the Nicolaitan bloodline calling himself a Jew but of the synagogue of Satan who was appointed by a godless heathen pagan gentile governor whose very name promotes his existence as GRACE which was one of Satan's many vain attempts to mock Jesus Christ. 

I urge you to then continue to connect the dots through Egypt in the Second Century CE to The Roman Emperor Constantine in the 3rd Century focusing on the rise of the Vatican in later 3 CE foundation set on Constantine's original St Peter's Basilica. It is important to add here the top of the list of wolves to come out of the North African Church was none other than Augustine of Hippo in the 3rd Century who brought PHILOSOPHY - PAGANISM-  RELIGION to the European continent through Rome.

 Continue connecting the dots to the creation of the Catholic Church at the Vatican in the 4th Century on the land that Constantine gave to the Pope. The big lie was that St Peter's Basilica was constructed literally at the burial place of Peter which is NOT true. According to Bible Archelogy and I must add the Bible, there is NO EVIDENCE - textual (historical or archaeological) that Peter died in Rome.  He never even visited Rome. What a sham the Vatican claims Peter as their first Pope.  

Quote:

There is no solid evidence—textual or even archaeological—that Peter died in Rome. Starting around the end of the second century, Christian pilgrims went to see Peter’s tropaion. But a tropaion is not a tomb. The word itself is very unusual; sometimes translated as “trophy,” it means something like a war memorial or a cenotaph (i.e., an empty grave). It’s not the word used in the Roman Empire for a burial place. Yet this spot—which was originally in the middle of an ancient cemetery—was quickly understood as the place where Peter was buried. When it was excavated in the 1950s, archaeologists were shocked to find that there was no grave and no bones under the tropaion


However, if you study WHO claims Peter was martyred in Rome you'll find the same who were connected to Rome from Alexandria and invented the word 'TRINITY' - yes, none other than Tertullian himself as well as Clement of Alexandria his predecessor. 

Further research that Peter was the first Pope 

is an outrageous lie and to see how Catholics have been so misled into believing that Matthew 16:18 KJV is Jesus telling Peter that Jesus will build His Church on Peter.  The word Rock Jesus uses is PETRA and NOT PETRAS = Peter. Secondly, even a simple knowledge of English grammar the reader can clearly see when Jesus uses the adverb "this" Jesus is referring to himself and NOT Peter.  By both use of single masculine article -  (ho) - including Jesus not using the 2nd person personal pronoun -  and by the proximity rule of articles it is impossible to conclude that Jesus was establishing His Church on Peter.   Note: Study the physical and spiritual connection of Alexandria Egypt to the Vatican. If you only take a second to ask why the Egyptian Obelisk is positioned in the center of Saint Peter's square in the Vatican.  



At least they placed the cross on top...

Continuing forward study and connect the dots from the early 1st Century Church from Jesus Christ warning of the false teachers and wolves that would creep in.   To the split of Antioch and Alexandria. and where God allowed  Satan to hijack the Levitical Priesthood of Aaron but rather a to Egypt to Alexandria to the 2nd Century Jew named Philo - like Caiaphas - who thought he was a Jew but rather will be proven to be the synagogue of Satan) who loved Greek Philosophy to explain the Torah whose teaching inspired the Alexandrian teacher "TERTULLIAN"  who invented the word TRINITY and who literally by fiat with the pen declared that God Son and Holy Spirit were in fact separate PERSONS defined as "human bodied" concrete persons but were really in existence as 1 person in human form called God - notice not Jesus Christ.   Read it carefully for yourself. 


On page 2,140 of the Oxford English Compact Dictionary (hard copy) We read in Part I that the word Person was set apart as a distinct meaning of the Trinity by Tertullian in 200 AD. Following the Juridical meaning of Person:  Christian meaning by Tertullian (200 c) a "person" of the trinity - generally thought to be related to Latin persondre - to sound through ; but the long o makes this a difficulty the sense that mask has not come down into English. and in the sense that this did not arrive by logical order.  

TRANSLATE:  What we're reading here is although the true meaning of the word person is based exclusively on the definition of Person on the remaining page 2,140 which is a living body, a physical bodily object of an individual human being, Tertullian in the 2nd Century claimed that in Christianity because of his term 'TRINITY' the meaning of "person" changes to include the abstract nature of God. HOWEVER, there is NO LOGICAL ORDER TO ARRIVE AT THIS Change.

Repeat by Oxford University:   There is no logical order to arrive at this change.

Why?  Because even a child can recognize the difference between CONCRETE NOUNS and ABSTRACT NOUNS.   How can God who can only be visually represented by the BODY of Jesus Christ, ALSO be witnessed by the physical body of The Father?  

A Trinitarian will answer: This proves the Trinity because the SON is a PERSON and the Son is IN the Father and so the 2 are persons.   Again this is NOT what is written in scripture.   

The father, which means God, as the witness as The Father, used throughout scripture as God.  If this were a person as defined by Oxford dictionary God would be a concrete human being, a body.  However scripture is clear that God has not been seen and is SPIRIT. NOT  a human being. 

Only the Godhead is scripture evidence: God is a spirit NOT A PERSON and No man has seen him and that it is only Jesus Christ who is the VISIBLE IMAGE OF GOD. The Holy Spirit as I have addressed in Parts 1 and 2 is NOT a separate PERSON but rather an intangible abstract entity not perceived with the five senses and is the spirit. 


For example:

 1 Corinthians 8:6 - But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.


One God is separated by commas,  the Father,...   In grammar this means that the main idea is God and the subordinate word is Father.  The subordinate word means it is NOT the main idea to describe who God is but rather showing us that the word Father which would normally be in a concrete noun form of being a real human being in body "person" is showing us a part or aspect of the Godhead.  

To fully understand why The Father is set apart by commans please study how commans are used and what it means in grammar.  

Use a pair of commas in the middle of a sentence to set off clauses, phrases, and words that are not essential to the meaning of the sentence. Use one comma before to indicate the beginning of the pause and one at the end to indicate the end of the pause.


https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/punctuation/commas/extended_rules_for_commas.html


Understand that the same purpose The Father is mentioned in scripture in relationship to Jesus Christ we are seeing the Godhead.  The purpose of this among many is to stand as an eternal witness.  See my detailed study of how 1 John 5:7 KJV PROVES the GODHEAD and dispels the Trinity and the shocking humor of why Trinitarians run away from this scripture which reads:

1 John 5:7

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

How 1 John 5:7 KJV proves the witness nature of the Godhead and dispels Trinity

This would be like telling someone we of one (neuter/neutral designation of one) accord in agreement VS we exist as the one and the same person (masculine or feminine depending on gender of the subject person) in agreement.

Full detailed study Link


Here again we see the Godhead and not Trinity.  Remember  Jesus is a PERSON by definition we exhausted above.  Father here with scripture with Scripture is GOD which is SPIRIT and is NOT  a PERSON by definition and not by Tertullian's illogical conclusion and unscriptural conclusion, but by residing in JESUS CHRIST as the witness to Jesus Christ. 
 

John 10:30

30 I and my Father are one.

John 14:10

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  


Definition of terms:   Noun - Is a part of speech that names something as a person, place, thing, or idea.  

There are two types of Nouns:  The Concrete Noun and the Abstract Noun.

Concrete Noun:  A noun describing a person, physical bodily tangible persons  that can only be experienced with the 5 senses. 

Abstract Noun:  A Noun that is immaterial, intangible of things that do not exist as physical objects NO Physical bodies or form. A concept only experienced as an idea. Abstract nouns DO NOT refer to People or Persons. They exist apart from concrete physical existence.   

A Person:  Individual, a human being, man woman child. A living body of a human being; The actual BODY; Bodily Figure, Bodily Presence in action.  A physical bodily object; Bodily form. 

For the purpose of this Study The Godhead is an Abstract Noun. All so called separate persons the Trinitarians call persons of the Godhead and then throw in the word Trinity are not BODILY LIVING CONCRETE PERSONS EXCEPT JESUS CHRIST.  By their own definition of pure grammar we see that Trinitarians have to "make up their own language" as I will prove here with the historical record of the Oxford English Dictionary Compact Edition page: 

If we go into a thorough study of the beginning of the English translation 

It is a concept and exists apart from concrete physical form. This includes The Father who remains abstract and not a person although The Father without the context of Godhead would be a concrete noun. The Father or Father without the comma set aside as found in 1 Corinthians 8:6 KJV would be a concrete noun. But again stressing the importance of English grammar we see that the main idea in this scripture is GOD who is spirit and not human being NOT a person who is witnessed and manifested in His visible Image of the HUMAN BEING who is also fully God as a PERSON in the Person of Jesus Christ.   This harmonizes perfectly with the 3 perfect GODHEAD verses (in the witness of 2 or more)  Colossians 1:8 KJV and Colossians 2:9 KJV (it is of no coincidence that Colossians 2:9 follows the warning of Vain Imagination and Philosophy that perverts the Godhead)  as well as 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV.  I discussed this at length in Part 2 of the Godhead proven with Grammar preposition and the preposition OF Blog. See notes below. 

 1 Corinthians 8:6 - But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.


There is no scripture that says God the Father  or God the Son or God The Holy Spirit.
I will go through each scripture to prove this below with each of the 25 scriptures that appear in the King James Version Bible.  I include the listing in notes below. 


YES  Let's pause... Reflect...  Pray...


There is a terrible dilemma found when mortal man through vain imagination philosophy tradition of man and the rudiments of this world attempt to make the invisible Unseen God who is Spirit who is unfathomable in scope - far beyond the comprehension of man- attempts to personalize the truly abstract (withdrawn - separated from matter - from material embodiment) nature of God and personalize the Godhead beyond the legal scope of scripture which JESUS CHRIST ALONE EXISTS IN THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY. Jesus Christ is a Concrete Noun meaning:  meaning  (Concrete NOT Abstract) .


Trinitarians will go beyond this scope and add God the Father-even adding the perverted concept of non scripture God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.


Examine


In part 2 by God’s abundant grace whereby his provision of the preponderance of evidence based on grammar, context, grammar, and scripture witnessing scripture I clearly showed that Jesus Christ and him alone stands as the physical body in concrete form meaning NOT ABSTRACT.


Thus here in part 3

we study NOUNS and the difference between the abstract noun is a type of noun that refers to something with which a person cannot physically interact. A noun is a person, place, or thing. However, in many cases, the “thing” might be an intangible concept—which means it is an abstract form of noun. In this instance, abstract means to exist apart from concrete existence. A noun that is abstract is an aspect, concept, idea, experience, state of being, trait, quality, feeling, or other entity that cannot be experienced with the five senses.

Another vain attempt of the Trinitarians to force the square peg into the round hole.

Quote from  H. A. Wolfson, The Philosophy of the Church FathersVolume One: Faith, Trinity, Incarnation (Harvard University Press, 1956), pp. 359-363.

More than once Dr Vallicella points out that God's substance can't be understood as matter, which is correct. But he fails to understand what "substance" means in trinitarian doctrine. He writes: "The sense in which water is a substance is not the sense in which God is a substance. Water is a substance in the sense of a stuff; God is a substance in the sense of a hypostasis (that which stands under) or hypokeimenon (that which is placed under), or as I prefer to say, an individual."

From the standpoint of traditional, classical Trinitarian theology, this is incorrect. God is a substance neither in the sense of stuff (hyle) nor in the sense of individual (hypostasis). Here's a representative explanatory snippet from St John of Damascus, showing the universal traditional use of the terms, from "De Fide Orthodoxa" c.48: "Substantia quidem communem speciem et complectivam speciem homoiodon (id est earum quae unum sunt specie) hypostaseon (id est personarum) significat, utputa Deus, homo; hypostasis autem atomon (id est individuum) demonstrat, scilicet Patrem, Filium, Spiritum Sanctum, Petrum, Paulum."


So "substance" here means something like "essence" or "being" (in the sense of ousia) rather than hypostasis; the whole doctrine of the Trinity depends on this distinction between the one nature, substance, being, essence, etc. on the one hand and the three individual persons or hypostases on the other. In most cases where there is one existing human nature (man), there is one individual hypostasis (Peter or Paul); in the case of the Trinity there is one divine nature (God) instantiated in three hypostases (Father and Son and Holy Spirit); conversely, in the Incarnation there are two existing natures (God and man), but only one hypostasis (Christ the Incarnate Logos). It is not good Trinitarian doctrine to say that there is one individual or hypostasis (God) who is identical to three individual persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). 


Unlike most other nouns, abstract nouns don’t refer to people or places. After all, people and places are real things that exist in our world. Even nouns that refer to fictional characters and places, such as Godzilla or Valhalla, are not, the reasoning goes, abstract nouns because these things would have a physical form if they were actually real...

What we can observe above is a twisting of grammar, but mostly scripture with scripture and context to try to PHILOSOPHICALLY PROVE THE SIMPLICITY OF THE CHRIST.   

NO WONDER JEWS and MUSLIMS are so confounded by the Pagan Concept of Polytheism presented by TRINITY vs Godhead.  Perhaps we can see why so many Messianic Jews stay away from attending Christian gatherings...    Food for thought.


A few years back there was a sad debate between Muslim Scholar Mohammed Hijab who defended Tawhid vs Dr. Woods who tried foolishly to defend the Trinity.  Every time you walk away from scripture and use Philosophy to try to describe God you will be left to open rebuke and shame.    Dr. Woods is a Ph.D. in Philosophy.  Please read my Blog to hopefully open your eyes:

25 Bible Verses About God The Father (KJV) =  God compare with all Old Testament reference to GOD as The Father.   

Bible Verses About God The Father

309

1 Corinthians 8:6

6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.


Explanation above

263

Ephesians 4:6

6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Jehovah from the origin Yahweh Supreme exists in you all (saved Christians). 


Note: Trinitarians would foolishly comment this scripture means 2 distinct persons of the Trinity ( 1st PERSON of the Trinity - The Father -  along with the 3rd PERSON of the Trinity - The Holy Spirit ) are INSIDE OF believers.   

Oh, oh..... What about Jesus Christ?   Over dozens of other scriptures tell me that Jesus Christ abides in us and we in him. Just take a quick peek at Ephesians 2:6 KJV.  

This is saying that God   YHWH Yahweh the origin of YEHOVAH  throughout scripture in the Old Testament as the one and only Eternal God  who is Jesus Christ in the Flesh abides in we who are saved.  

 (Read meet my kinsman redeemer when God spoke to Moses from the Bush and compare to what Jesus told the Pharisees.) 


Come Meet my Kinsman Redeemer (thethirdheaventraveler.com)


Ephesians 2:6 KJV  is the one TRUE GOD (Theos) our HEAVENLY FATHER see scriptures proving this and compare with YAHWEH. Why would God the Father to the ancient Hebrews always be 1 GOD YAHWEH - the origin of  YEHOVAH - now be 3 separate persons in one inside the New Testament? 


Isaiah 63:16 Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O Lord, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.


There is no scripture reference to God the Father existing as the first person of the Trinity who is really GOD.  The father God is ONE GOD.


 No wonder why Muslims and Jews are outraged by the polytheistic concept of the Trinity. See my study on why a Muslim scholar won the debate Trinity VS Tawhid with Dr. Woods.

 Ephesians 2:6 KJV uses unseen as an abstract noun is our heavenly father (God) who resides in our  by His spirit which is literally the one and same spirit of Jesus Christ that bears witness with the truth of the Godhead meaning that we belong to God THROUGH the finished work of the Cross whereby Jesus Christ came as the visible image of God to earth by virgin birth, died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd day.  The Godhead bears witness with which is not a separate person but the witness with Colossians 2:9

Scripture with scripture see how Ephesians harmonizes with the Godhead scriptures of Colossians 1:8, 2:8 KJV and 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV. 

Also how can we be sealed with the Holy Spirit OF PROMISE?  If after a detailed study of PREPOSITIONS and the Preposition OF which means Promise is what seals us by COVENANT and bears witness that we belong to him See Romans 8:16 KJV
