One God & One Lord
Reconsidering the Cornerstone
of the Christian Faith
Do you want to know who Jesus Christ really is? Was he a man, or God, or both? Can you actually relate to him and be like him? Knowing who the Bible says Jesus is, what he did for you, and what he wants to do for you now will both delight and encourage you. Here are some excerpts from the book, which you can buy for a life-changing read.
From the Introduction, page 11...
It is our experience that many people who say they believe in the "Trinity" do not actually know what the orthodox definition of the Trinity is. When we explain it to them, a typical response is, "Well, I do not believe that." The basic tenet of the traditional doctrine of the Trinity is that "the Father is God, the Son is God, the Holy Spirit is God, they are co-equal and co-eternal and together the three of them make one God." Many people think the Trinity is simply belief in the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit, but that is not so. Although it may seem to you at first that this book teaches a doctrine that is heretical and dangerous, perhaps you will discover that it is actually teaching something very close to what you already believe.

From Chapter 1 – Christianity 101: Two Adams, page 23...
Jesus Christ had to be the Last Adam, a "lamb from out of the flock," but "without spot or blemish" so that he could die as an acceptable sacrifice. By being both genetically and behaviorally flawless, the Last Adam's life would be a sufficient sacrifice for the sin nature inherent in all men, as well as for all their sinful behavior in the future. We will see in the book of Hebrews that the reason the Last Adam had to be a true man was so that he could die to pay the price for the sins of all men. We will also see that via his death, he "took the Devil's best punch," and that in his resurrection, he got up "off the canvas."

From Appendix A: An Explanation of Verses Sometimes Used to Support the Trinity, page 427...
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Carefully reading a verse is the only way to begin to properly interpret it. In this case, it is clear that Christ's authority was given to him. Many other Scriptures say the same thing: "…God has made…Jesus…both Lord and Christ" (Acts 2:36). God "placed" everything under his feet and "appointed" him to be Head of the Church (Eph. 1:22). If Christ were really God, and co‑equal and co‑eternal with the Father as the Trinitarians teach, then it is illogical to say Christ was given authority. God, by definition, has authority. The authority Jesus now has is delegated and derived, and is not a function of his "divine nature." The wording of these Scriptures is, in actuality, a refutation of the Trinity. Jesus is that man to whom God gave "all authority."
