Christianity is Monotheistic

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

"This is what the LORD says—
Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
apart from me there is no God. (Isaiah 44:6)

In this verse you can clearly see what God is trying to say. God says that he is the first meaning that he has no Father and he is the last meaning he has no son and there is no other God apart from him.

Compare that with:

17When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: "Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. (Revelation 1:17 NIV) emphasis added

"To the angel of the church in Smyrna write:These are the words of him who is the First and the Last, who died and came to life again. (Revelation 2:8 NIV) emphasis added

13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. (Revelation 22:13 NIV) emphasis added

"This is what the LORD (YHWH) says—
Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD (YHWH) Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
apart from me there is no God. (Isaiah 44:6)

The Father is YHWH, the Son is YHWH, and the Holy Spirit is YHWH. They are one in nature.

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. (Deuteronomy 6:4 NIV)

The word 'one' in Hebrew is echad, meaning composite unity. The Holy Trinity fits this. However, the word yachid, absolute unity, is never used when referring to God.

May God Bless You All
