Why we are not Trinitarians

Those of us in the church called the body of Christ (not to be confused with those in the Christian religion, who are not actually members of our church, but are instead a part of a counterfeit religion created to imitate and replace our church) are not Trinitarians. I should say, we aren’t Modalists either, for many of the same reasons we don’t believe in the Trinity. I’m not going to get into the reasons for why we’re not Trinitarians myself, however, but instead I’m going to provide a list of links to a number of studies on this topic by other members of our church, as well as to some websites by people who aren’t necessarily in the body of Christ, but who also at least understand the truth about the doctrine of the Trinity.

The following websites are not necessarily run by members of the body of Christ, but they do contain some excellent arguments against the doctrine of the Trinity, so I’m linking to them here as well.

While none of us are Trinitarians, there is a minor debate within our church as to whether Arianism (which is a theological label that is largely used today to refer to the doctrine that Jesus was the first being God brought into existence) or Socinianism (which is a theological label that is largely used today to refer to the doctrine that Jesus first came into existence as a conscious being at His birth as a human) is more likely to be true. This isn’t a salvation issue the way belief in the Trinity can be, so most of us don’t let this minor disagreement get in the way of fellowship between members of the body (and any who do should not), but it is something that people are increasingly taking sides on in recent years, so I’ve included the following list of articles to provide you with the main arguments from either side of the disagreement.

Now, while I can see the arguments for both sides of the debate, there is a side which I do believe seems to have made a stronger case from Scripture than the other so far. However, I’m not 100% sold on either perspective at this time, and I don’t want to lead you astray if I’m wrong, so I’m simply going to share links to a series of articles on the topic for your consideration so you can decide for yourself (and I’ll add more as I come across them or as I’m informed that they’ve been written).
