If God Is One Then...?

If God is one, as Jesus said, then Father, Son, and Spirit are One as God.

Jesus said He was in the Father, and the Father was in Him, then he says

when he goes away, he will send the Disciples the Spirt of Jesus. What is Jesus  saying?

Is Jesus really just speaking metaphorical, as he normally did, so not to get himself 

killed before going to the Cross? That's where the Church Fathers fail, to take this into

account when formulating the Trinity in the 4th Century.

    The Israelites knew that Jehovah their God is “one Jehovah.” Faithful Israelites worshipped one God, the God of their forefathers. So why did Moses remind them that Jehovah their God is “one Jehovah”? What is the connection between that truth and loving our God with our whole heart, whole soul, and whole strength? And how do the words of Deuteronomy 6:4, 5 apply to us today?

    The expression “one Jehovah” means that Jehovah is unique, that no one is equal to or like him. Why did Moses use that expression? It does not seem that he was trying to prove that belief in a trinity was wrong. Jehovah is the Creator of heaven and earth and the Ruler of the universe. He is the only true God, and no other god is like him. (2 Samuel 7:22)

    Source(s): “Jehovah Our God Is One Jehovah” “Listen, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.”​—DEUTERONOMY 6:4.

    wait, did Jesus say he would send the spirit of Jesus, or the 2nd comforter which is the Holy Ghost. be certain you have the correct word being used here. i know of no verse that Jesus said he will send himself in the spirit.

    "If God is one, as Jesus said, then Father, Son, and Spirit are One as God."

    Correct, they are one being.

    "Jesus said He was in the Father, and the Father was in Him, then he says

    when he goes away, he will send the Disciples the Spirt of Jesus. What is Jesus saying?"

    Where does Jesus say He will send the "Spirit of Jesus"?  He said the Holy Spirit.

    "Is Jesus really just speaking metaphorical, as he normally did, so not to get himself

    killed before going to the Cross?"

    "speaking metaphorical" In reference to what?

    "That's where the Church Fathers fail, to take this into

    account when formulating the Trinity in the 4th Century. "

    The church fathers did not formulate the Trinity.  It is the very nature of God and always has been.  It was not created by man.  Man has come to a clearer understanding over time, but it is not something invented by man.

    Sounds like you have a misunderstanding of the Trinity.  Recommended reading: "The Forgotten Trinity" by James R. White.

    Trinity is a biblical FACT.

    God does NOT choose any tom, **** or harry to be His.

    Yes, God died for everyone BUT not everyone is .. chosen. Fact.

    Indeed, when Jesus was on earth .. God on earth in the flesh .. the Holy Spirit was not given.

    The HS was given AFTER God left this earth.

    God is ONE .. 3 =1 , 1=3 .. ONLY the chosen are given to UNDERSTAND this.

    Stop arguing the Trinity. U are not chosen = clear as day.

    Live w it .. hehe
