The following verse will not be found in the multitude of PERversions existent, which seek to eliminate the Deity of Christ.  Such is done so very insidiously that most are not aware that the piece of rag they hold in their hands they call a bible denies Christ, the very ones who call themselves to be Christians!

For there are three that bear record in heaven, 
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: 
and these three are one.
1 John 5:7 (King James Bible)

Definition of the Trinity from the Philadelphia Confession of Faith, 1742:


“In this Divine and Infinite Being there are three subsistences, the Father, the Word (or Son), and Holy Spirit, of one substance, power, and eternity, each having the whole divine essence, yet the essence undivided; the Father is of none neither begotten, nor proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father; the Holy Spirit proceeding from the Father and the Son, all infinite, without beginning, therefore but one God, who is not to be divided in nature and being, but distinguished by several peculiar relative properties and personal relations; which doctrine of the Trinity is the foundation of all our communion with God, and our comfortable dependence on him.”


The following is adapted from a message entitled “The Trinity” by the late fundamental Baptist preacher I.M. Haldeman, pastor of First Baptist Church, New York City, 1884-1933. 


Scripture always speaks of God as One God.


“There is none other God but one...” (1 Cor. 8:4).


The Son of God, our Lord, defines God essentially as spirit (John 4:24). The Holy Ghost defines God as person (“the express image of his person,” Hebrews 1:3). But this word “person” in the Greek is hupostasis--which signifies “substance,” “essence,” and, in final analysis, ‘Being.”


So that, speaking correctly, we should say: “God is One Substance--One Essence--One Being--The Supreme Being.”


In this one and indivisible Being there is a plurality of persons--subsisting. 


“God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness” (Gen. 1:26). The Hebrew word for God here is Elohim. It is a plural noun and is always joined to a verb in the singular, indicating that the act of this plurality of persons--is always as the act of ONE. 


Scripture reveals that in this One Being, this One Substance--Spirit--there subsist three distinct persons. They are known as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 


Scripture teaches that these three persons constitute what is called the Godhead (Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9).   


Each person of this Divine Being is God. And each of them is all that God is.


The Father is God (John 6:27). The Son is God (Heb. 1:8; Titus 2:13; John 20:28). The Spirit is God (Acts 5:1-4). 


Each one of these persons is entirely God, but the three persons are not in any sense three Gods.


Not one of them can be God without the other two. The Father cannot be God without the Son and the Spirit. The Son cannot be God without the Father and the Spirit. The Spirit cannot be God without the Father and the Son. 


Each is God only as each is in the one Being of the Godhead. 


As this Godhead cannot be divided, there cannot be three Gods. 


As this indivisible Being constitutes One God and no one of the persons can take any degree of Being from the other, then, the Three, being in and of the one substance, constitute one indivisible Being, or God. 


Correctly and theologically speaking we are to say, concerning God, that “we neither confound the persons nor divide the substance.” 


And therefore, God is a Triunity of Being in One Godhead. He is three Persons in a unity of Being.

WAY OF LIFE LITERATURE SHARING POLICY: Much of our material is available for free, such as the hundreds of articles at the Way of Life web site. Other items we sell to help fund our expensive literature, video, and foreign church planting ministry. Way of Life’s content falls into two categories: sharable and non-sharable. Things that we encourage you to share include the audio sermons, O Timothy magazine, FBIS articles, and the free eVideos and free eBooks. You are welcome to make copies of these at your own expense and share them with friends and family, but they cannot be posted to web sites. You are also welcome to use excerpts from the articles in your own writings, in sermons, in church bulletins, etc. All we ask is that you give proper credit.
Things we do not want copied and distributed freely are items like the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library, print edition of our books, PDFs and other electronic editions of the books that we sell, the eVideos that we sell, etc. The items have taken years to produce at enormous expense in time and money, and we need the income from sales to help fund the ministry. We trust that your Christian honesty will preserve the integrity of this policy. “For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward” (1 Timothy 5:18).
