This kind of "theology" is about as fruitful as "how many angels can...."

A friend brought me to a oneness unity church a long time ago where a woman pastor would begin praying with, "father mother god. I was having problems following her sermon and then she ended by saying, if your car is out of gas you can think positive because the "E" on your gas tank really stands for "E"nough not "E"mpty. I thought this was strange theology so I never went back to learn more about oneness unity. Thats about all that I know about oneness.

Whats up uce nice to see u here. polynesians taking over.
i think that da oneness teaching is wrong because the bible makes a clear distinction between tha Father and tha Son while saying they both are God.

John 1:1 has the Word facing God and both are called God. we know there is only one God so trinity is da only solution that makes sense.

I don’t know if it’s related to this or not:

[4] "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD;
[5] and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.” Deut 6:4-5 RSV

FYI, day and night is determined by which side of the hemisphere you are living on, not the equator....

I once had a Oneness Pentecostal approach me while I was delivering mail and she tried to convince me that there is no Trinity and also that a person must be water baptized in "Jesus name only" in order to be saved. She said baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit was "invalid" and such a person remains lost.

She also told me to go home that night and read Acts 2:38 and baptize myself in the bathtub in "Jesus name only." She gave me the creeps! I was waiting for her to hand me the Kool Aid!
:eek:

actually it has been here for some time now LOL going back many years Modalism/ Sabellianism . it is the contrast to the Trinity doctrine. many also emphasis being baptized in the Name of Jesus Only to be saved. they are a sect outside of orthodox Christianity .

there is also "Oneness" cult coming out of Unitarian , Buddhism, and hinduism. aka all roads can lead to god. this too has crept into some church of Christianity as of late some church leaders like the Pope have verbally said Islam is a way to god .

thats crazy Jesus said to do it how can it be wrong. one more false teaching to da list of growing end time deceptions. ive noticed that if u cant find anyone to baptize u it means u probably belong to a cult if u have to baptize urself.

The following mystic is what a oneness pentecostal apologist teaches about God. "Jesus is the Word, the God, the flesh, the Spirit, the man, the Father, the Son, the Alpha & Omega, the Lord God Almighty, he is all!

In other words Jesus all of these "modes" or manifestations of the one God. Of course it's easy to see the problems that this teaching does to the Scriptures especially if Jesus Christ is actually God the Father. For instance, who was speaking at Mark 1:11? "and a voice came out of the heavens; "Thou art My beloved Son, in Thee I am well-pleased." This group is also known as "Jesus only" group.

Just google oneness pentecostals for more information. Btw, in what region are you located? PS: They also believe you must speak in tongues to be saved, you have to be water baptized by them only to be saved and they are extremely legalistic. :eek:

IN GOD THE SON,

Oneness Pentecostalism

Godhead

One of the two most distinguishing beliefs and practices within Oneness Pentecostalism (along with Jesus Only baptism — see below) is modalism. Oneness Pentecostals deny the Trinity, believing instead that the monotheistic God simply "manifests" Himself in the offices or roles of the members of the Trinity. For example, one statement of Oneness beliefsclaims:
God is absolutely one, with no distinction of persons. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:8; 45:5-6, 21-23; 46:9 Romans 3:30; Galatians 3:20; James 2:19). In order to save sinful humanity, God provided a sinless Man as a sacrifice of atonement —Jesus Christ, the Son of God. In begetting the Son and in relating to humanity, God is the Father. In working to transform and empower human lives, God is the Holy Spirit. Thus, for our salvation, God has revealed Himself as Father (inparental relationship to humanity), in His Son (in human flesh), and as the Holy Spirit (in spiritual action). (Malachi 2:10; Luke 1:35; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18; 1Timothy 2:5).
