Christian Media: Where Truth Meets You

What to Say (And Share) About the Trinity

A cell phone propped up displaying a private chat conversation; Text reads "What to say (and share) about the Trinity".

One of the fundamental teachings of the Church Of Christ is that we do not believe in the Trinity, or that there is a three-in-one-God. We believe in God, the Father, as our Creator and we follow His teachings given to us in the Bible. 

But for many people who consider themselves Christians, NOT believing in the Trinity is a non-starter when trying to discuss the true teachings, and they might even come prepared with biblical verses they believe prove that their 

understanding of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit is correct. 

Don’t get stumped by these verses. In fact, as members of the Church we’ve heard these same verses refuted and debunked time and again in our regular worship services, as well as in our fundamental lessons before we were first baptized. We know the truth.

Those conversations do start to get awkward though, don’t they? Thankfully, there are a series of videos that were made by That’s in the Bible that we can watch to learn more, and share with others. The in-depth information in these videos can help us hold our end of these conversations as we invite people to learn more about the truth of who God is as recorded in the Bible. 

So here’s a list of verses, along with the episodes that discuss them, and even a few simple ways to start those conversations with your friends who feel like they know these Bible verses already. Rephrase these conversation starters in your own voice, with your own conviction, to reflect your relationship with the person God is using you to call into His Church. 

JOHN 20:28 [New King James Version]:

And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

Was Thomas Wrong in John 20:28? 

When we were chatting about the trinity you mentioned Apostle Thomas and how he spoke to Jesus, calling him God. I found this video that explores that verse specifically and helps us understand it – hopefully you have a minute to watch it. I’d love to hear what you think after you finish it! 

JOHN 10:30 [New King James Version]:

I and My Father are one.”

“I and My Father Are One” in John 10:30

I know you were asking me about why I don’t believe Jesus is God, and we were talking about some specific verses. Here’s a link to a video about John 10:30, and I think it really helps us understand better what Jesus taught us about himself, and about God. 

PHILIPPIANS 2:5-6 [New King James Version]:

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,  who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 

Is the “Image of God” Proof Jesus is God?

I really enjoyed our conversation about Jesus and God. This video starts with Philippians 2:5-6 and helps us understand how Jesus, and all of us, were created in the image of God. Let me know what you think after you watch it! 

ISAIAH 9:6 [New King James Version]:

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Is Jesus “Everlasting Father” in Isaiah 9:6?

Talking about Jesus and God with you was really interesting. There’s a Bible verse I wanted to share with you, so here’s a video that explains Isaiah 9:6 from so many angles. I hope you give it a minute and watch the whole thing. I think you’ll learn a lot and I’d love to chat more. 

GENESIS 1:26 [New King James Version]:

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

Who was God Talking to Genesis 1:26?

Thanks for chatting about the trinity with me, I enjoyed hearing your beliefs and sharing mine. I know people who share your beliefs sometimes use Genesis 1:26 to help them prove the trinity. This is a great video about that verse specifically, and how it doesn’t prove the trinity at all actually. Hopefully you have a few minutes to watch it, I’d love to hear your thoughts.  

1 JOHN 5:7 [New King James Version]:

For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

Is 1 John 5:7 Evidence of the Trinity? 

It was great hearing your beliefs about Jesus and God, and talking about the Bible verses. How much research have you done into 1 John 5:7? Sometimes those who believe in the trinity use it to help explain their beliefs, but I wanted to share this video with you about it. It goes in depth and I know you’ll enjoy the attention to detail. 

JOHN 1:1,14 [New King James Version]

In the beginning there was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Meaning of the Word in John 1:1

That was a great chat we had about John 1:1, and the Word. You believe the Word is God, and Jesus. This video explains more about why I don’t believe Jesus is God, and why John 1:1 doesn’t show that Jesus was God among us. Hope you can check it out, let me know what you think.
