The mostly gullible, self righteous and barbaric INC people believe that the oneness of God is an absolute numeric one.
They even use this verse like this:
Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
Now the question, Is Christ part of the verse which it says NO GOD BESIDE ME (GOD)?
No, it is because Lord Jesus is True God as mentioned in 1 John 5:20.
In 1 John 5:20 He is also the eternal life.
The life, the eternal life that was manifested in the midst of the Apostles (1 John 1:2)
and clearly Lord Jesus said that He is life (read John 14:6)
Since He is life, this proves that He is God it is because only God is life read in Deuteronomy 30:20 let's read below:
"And that thou mayst love the Lord thy God, and obey his voice, and
adhere to him (for he is thy life, and the length of thy days,) that
thou mayst dwell in the land, for which the Lord swore to thy fathers
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that he would give it them. "
THE INC PEOPLE WILL BE CONFUSED and will hard to accept that Jesus is God it is because they were taught that the oneness of God is absolute one.
They even quote Bible verses such as Malachi 2:10, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Galatians 3:20
THE QUESTION IS: Is the Oneness of God really an absolutely one?
Well if we make a research of the word ONE in verses Malachi 2:10, 1 Corinthians 8:6 and Galatians 3:20.
the word there in Hebrew is Echad and in Greek which is EIS
which means UNITED ONE.
The word Echad or United One can be read in Genesis 2:24 in Hebrew
"Wherefore a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be two in one flesh."
IF A BIBLICAL CHARACTER IS A UNITED ONE
1) If you will count, it is more than one but really one it is because it is united
2) They are both of the same nature
In Genesis, the couple are one but if we will count they are 2 and of the same nature which is human.
Now it is clear that the Oneness of God is UNITED ONE.
Echad in Hebrew and Eis in Greek. not Aleph or number one in Hebrew or Monos in Greek. and also not Yachid or absolute numeric one in Hebrew.
The Jews today changed the word Echad into Yachid in Deuteronomy 6:4 since they cannot accept that Jesus is their Messiah and God.
and even say that the word Elohim (the plural form of God in Hebrew) becomes singular if pertains to Almighty God. (which the INC people copied today from the Jews of Judaism)
Now, to whom we should believe? To Lord Jesus and to his teachings or the Jews who deny the Messiahship and Divinity of our Lord?
Lord Jesus uses the word EL (singular for God in Hebrew) to call his Father. not the word Elohim which the Jews who dont believe in Christ say is singular if pertains to God.
Matthew 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli,
Eli, lamma sabacthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
And we must remember that the word God in Genesis Chapter 1 in Hebrew is Elohim and not El.
Now how will we explain the verse like in Isaiah 45:5?
Christ is not part of other gods beside Him (God) to be known by the early Jews during that time.
It is because during that time is not the Christian era.
and Jesus was not known to the Jews during that time. let's read in Ephesians 3:5 let's read below:
"Which in other generations was not known to the sons of men, as it is
now revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit:"
So the gods which God said who are not real gods beside Him in Isaiah 45:5 are the gods of the surronding nations of Israel who were also forbidden to acknowledged as real God to be worshipped by the Jews.
Deuteronomy 13:6 If
thy brother the son of thy mother, or thy son, or daughter, or thy wife
that is in thy bosom, or thy friend, whom thou lovest as thy own soul,
would persuade thee secretly, saying: Let us go, and serve strange gods,
which thou knowest not, nor thy fathers,
Deuteronomy 13:7 Of all the nations round about, that are near or afar off, from one end of the earth to the other,
The examples of these gods whom the ancient Israelites worshipped
1 Kings 11:5 But Solomon worshipped Astarthe the goddess of the Sidonians, and Moloch the idol of the ammonites.
1 Kings 11:7 Then
Solomon built a temple for Chamos the idol of Moab, on the hill that is
over against Jerusalem, and for Moloch the idol of the children of
Plus Baal (Judges 3:7) and Asherah (Deuteronomy 16:21 NASB)
