Trinity truth


Many are now fast learning that the doctrine of the Trinity is Catholic in origin, and that the Trinity is the central doctrine of the Catholic faith upon which all the other teachings of the Church are based.

The Catholic Church says, “The mystery of the trinity is the central doctrine of the Catholic faith. Upon it are based all the other teachings of the church.” — (Handbook for Today's Catholic, p. 11)

More and more Christians are also becoming aware that most Catholic doctrines are erroneous and that many come from paganism. But so many are indoctrinated with the idea that the Trinity doctrine cannot be in error that they do not investigate. Instead they convince themselves that there is nothing wrong with the Trinity doctrine.

However, due to the Catholic stigma attached to this word, many try and distance themselves from the word Trinity rather than search for the actual truth. This is being done by using the word Godhead instead.

What is the difference between Godhead and Trinity?

So what does the word Godhead mean and can it be used in place of the word Trinity? The fact is there is no relationship with the Trinity and the word Godhead at all as you are about to find out. Godhead refers to God the Father.

And making this issue a little more confusing, Godhead is often a word used by those with the non-Trinitarian truth for lack of a better word to use in opposition to the word Trinity.

More and more Trinitarians are using the word Godhead in place of Trinity thinking that changes what it is. But calling the Trinity by another name will never change what it is. You can call a cat a dog but it will still be a cat. And you can call the Trinity the Godhead but it will still be the Trinity!

The word Godhead is found in 3 verses in the King James Bible which are translated from three different Greek words that have slightly different meanings but all basically mean the same thing.

In Acts 17:29 the Greek word translated Godhead is “theios” (G2304) and means to be godlike and hence divine.

Acts 17:29 KJVForasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

The same Greek word is used in the verse below but has been translated to the word “divine.”

2 Peter 1:3 KJVAccording as his divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue:

In Romans 1:20 the Greek word translated Godhead is “theiotēs” (G2305) and refers to the divine nature.

Romans 1:20 KJVFor the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

And in Colossians 2:9 the Greek word translated Godhead is “theotēs” (G2320) and means deity as in the state of being God.

Colossians 2:9 KJVFor in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

So the word Godhead speaks of the “Divine nature” of the Father which has been given to the Son and hence is in the Son as we find in Colossians 2:9 above. Thus Jesus being the firstborn over all creation (Colossians 1:15), and being brought forth from the Father, He has the same “Divine nature” as His Father.

Colossians 1:19 KJVFor it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

Spirit of Prophecy is also very clear which says. “The Father is all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and is invisible to mortal sight.” — (E.G. White, BTS, March 1, 1906)

And so Christ being the Son receives this fullness, “He [Christ] was not the Father but in him dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily,” — (E.G. White, Lt8a, July 7, 1890)

John 5:26 also tells us that the Father gave life to His Son. “For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself.John 5:26. If Jesus had always existed alongside the Father as the Trinity doctrine claims, then God could not have given life to His Son as He would have always had life. But Scripture reveals this is impossible.

And so neither does the word Godhead explain the non-Trinitarian position in opposition to the word Trinity. It has been the only real option in lack of a better word to use for the non-Trinitarian view.

The Trinity doctrine states that there are three co-equal (equal in every respect), co-eternal (the same age), omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful) gods, who are not three gods, but one god.

By the words of the Athanasian Creed it is, “the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three gods but one God.

In other words. 1+1+1=1 !

So a 3 in 1 and 1 in 3 god which means the Father cannot really be a Father and the Son cannot really be a Son, which denies the Father and Son which the apostle John called antichrist. And hence the Holy Spirit is supposedly a third god that makes up the one god rather than being the actual Spirit of the Father and Son just as we have a spirit.

So the Divine nature of the Father referring to the ONE true God does not and cannot equal 3 gods yet alone a 3 in 1 god.

Thus Godhead does NOT equal Trinity in any way whatsoever! Godhead refers to God the Father and His Divine nature which dwells in His Son because Christ is His Son.

If you ever here any Pastor teaching that Godhead literally means 3 beings, then know they do not know Scripture or have been indoctrinated with the Trinitarian lie. In the following video we see one such example with Pastor Doug Batchelor.
