Christianity is Monotheistic

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Jesus was this a Messenger

Then what is Jesus trying to say in John 10: 30-34?


It is impossible to deny that the Jews knew that Jesus was saying that he was the actual God, YHWH. Psalm 82 is mocking the Jewish authorities of that time who supposedly had the power over life and death. Jesus was referring back to it, showing that that the Psalm applies to them.

The Book of Revelations was not wriiten by John the Aspostle but by John of Patmos.

However, John the Apostle was believed to have been exiled to Patmos by Nero. John of Patmos might very well be the same person as the Apostle. Regardless, Revelation does not differ with the Biblical canon. The books of Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and the other prophetic books are tied together and in unison. How can you deny this?

Why God forget about Jesus and the Holy Spirit:

20 "There is no one like you, O LORD, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears. (1 Chronicles 17: 20)

You fail to grasp the concept of a Trinity. "LORD" and "God" refers to one of the Godhead or all of them. When they say, "There is no one like you, YHWH", they are essentially saying that there is no one like the Godhead. Once more, all three are equally God. They are not gods, but they are God. Genesis says that God said, "Let us make man in our image." See? Plurality. Christianity is not polytheism.

39 "See now that I myself am He!
There is no god besides me. (Deuteronomy 32: 39)

YHWH is saying that there is no god besides him. Since the Holy Spirit, the Father, and Jesus are all YHWH, then this does not contradict anything.

9 Remember the former things, those of long ago;
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me. (Isaiah 46:9)

See above.

Not one verse in the Bible says that God is completely singular. They all say echad, composite unity.

May God Bless You All
