After Jesus explained to a man that he would have to be re-born of water and Spirit to be saved, Jesus commented regarding the love of God.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily , verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Jesus often spoke in parables. Many think that this verse speaks of a junior separate "god", but those people are not aware that there is only ONE God.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Those that realize that there is only ONE God do not see a contradiction between John 3:16 and 1 Timothy 3:16, because they realize that the 'Son' was the created (made of a woman) flesh that Jehovah used when He visited His world.
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Notice that the 'Son' was created or "made". The very word "begotten" means "created". The Spirit of God that inhabited the 'Son' is eternal, the flesh body was made, created, begotten.
Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Notice that the 'Son' (the flesh) was begotten, made, created.
John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily , verily, I say unto you, [Before Abraham was], I am.
Notice here that the "person" inhabiting that "begotten flesh" claimed to pre- exist that created body (and the Jews went to stone Him because they knew that He was claiming to be Jehovah).
For those that *REALLY* believe in only one God, have no problem whatsoever with these verses that cause the trinity cultists to throw fits.
The "Oneness", or "One God" believer is on quite SOLID ground, because:
Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The [first of all the commandments]
The Bible gives such a clear warning against the ever so popular trinity cults and their "soul spoiling" characteristics.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
The trinity cultist is clearly preaching a man made philosophy that attempts to convince the gullible that the fullness of the Godhead is somewhere other than in Jesus Christ. They teach that the "fulness" exists in the three imaginary separate persons of their man made trinity idol.
