Dear Rev. Storms

Holy greetings to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I just read an article of yours, which has ten parts, in which you expounded on the trinity. Now, there are a number of points I would love to make, to which you can respond, some of which will be in the form of questions.

(1) Deut 6:4 mentions one LORD, but does not numerically define this LORD as a triune being of divine persons. I have noticed in the OT, that God by revelation, is a consistent one, and not a family of divine persons. For example, God in his revelation of himself to Isaiah, in chapter 44:6, says beside him there is no God.

(2) In your article, you mentioned substance and essence, which I figure you meant to be the same thing, which is shared with three divine persons. Now my question to you is, if you consider only one divine person, let us say, God the Father, is His divine essence or substance, a part of him? Is the essence of the single-personhood, a part of the personhood?

(3) The incarnation demands that God was manifested in the flesh. Now God in scripture, is defined as Spirit, which means that Spirit/substance/essence, took on flesh and blood and walked earth as a human being. On the basis of the trinitarian' concept of divine persons sharing in the same divine essence, and not three essences, can it be denied that the divine essence incarnate as a man, is the Father's essence?

(4) The God-incarnate, is a single-personhood only. Which of the following is true? (a) The Father is the same God incarnate; (b) The Father is not the same God incarnate.

(5) The Trinitarian theology teaches that the Father is the same God as Jesus. Oneness theology accepts this, but goes on further to say that the Father is the same God who is Jesus. Do you agree with this.

I will pause at this point and await your response. Thanks for taking the time to read my comment. The Lord bless you richly.

David
