  • Pitanje "Nema Početka"

    Trinitarijanci promiču teoriju da su Bog i Isus uvijek postojali vječno - bez početka. Ako bi se postavilo pitanje da li će Isus i Bog uvijek postojati, tada je odgovor da, prema Svetom Pismu. Ali ako je pitanje da li Bog i Isus obojica nemaju početak, tada bi odgovor trebao biti dodatno istražen iz Svetog Pisma. Pogledajmo neke odlomke na tu temu. Također i sami nazivi Otac i Sin pomažu nam razumjeti to bolje.

  • Pitanje Jednakosti

    Isus im odgovori: "Otac moj sve do sada radi pa i ja radim. Zbog toga su Židovi još više gledali da ga ubiju jer je ne samo kršio subotu nego i Boga nazivao Ocem svojim izjednačujući sebe s Bogom (Ivan 5:17-18).Iako se ne spominje Sveti Duh, ovaj je redak često citiran da se podrži Trojstvo. Proučimo kontekst ovog retka i također pogledajmo druge odlomke gdje Isus izravno navodi koju vrstu odnosa on ima sa Ocem.

  • The 'No Beginning' Question

    Trinitarians promote the theory that God and Jesus always existed eternally – with no beginning. If the question is asked whether Jesus and God will always exist, then the answer is yes, according to the Scriptures. But if the question is about whether God and Jesus both did not have a beginning, then the answer has to be researched further from the Scriptures. Let us look at some passages on this topic. Also the terms Father and Son themselves help us understand it better.

  • The Co-Equality Question

    He answered them, ‘My Father is working until now, and I myself am working.’ For this reason therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because he not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God (John 5:17-18). Although it doesn't mention the Holy Spirit, this verse is usually quoted to support a co-equal trinity. Let us study this verse's context and also look at other passages where Jesus directly states what kind of relationship he has with the Father.
