    • Major heresies against the doctrine of Trinity
    • Most errors entered from the wrong teachings on the humanity and deity of Jesus Christ.
    • There is no controversy on deity of the Father
    • Errors (Heresies)
    • Son of God has not come in the flesh
    • Jesus was only human
    • Jesus never possessed deity
    • Jesus possessed son-ship later
    • Jesus didn’t not possess the deity and humanity
    • together.
    • (We will look to the major heresies now)
  • HOLY TRINITY
    • Major heresies
    • 1. Modalism
    • (The Heresy-The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are temporal modes- so denies co-exist or co-eternal)
    • Supreme God manifested in three modes
    • In Old testament time as Father
    • In New testament time as Son
    • From Pentecost as the Holy Spirit
    • (Exist only in one “mode” at a time)
    • This rejects the co-existence and co-eternal
    • (Look back to our same study- slide no.11)
  • HOLY TRINITY
    • Major heresies
    • 2. Adoptionism
    • (The Heresy- Jesus was originally a man only and
    • later adopted as God’s Son)
    • Teaches Father as the only supreme God
    • Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit of lesser rank
    • Jesus as a perfect man and adopted as Son of God
    • at his baptism
    • Rejects Holy Spirit as a person of Godhead
    • (This heresy rejects all the divine character and
    • doctrine of trinity revealed)
    • (Look back to study- slide no.8)
  • HOLY TRINITY
    • Major heresies
    • 3. Arianism
    • (The Heresy that the Son is an inferior deity,
    • and created, and therefore not eternal)
    • More resemblance to Adoptionism
    • Begotten of the Father so rejects eternal
    • Accepted as son later (only unique of creation)
    • So no essence of Father; so an inferior deity
    • (Not only rejects eternal nature, but co-exists,
    • co-inherent)
    • Look back to our studies – slide no.8
    • Read 1. Tim.3: 16 (Mystery of incarnation)
  • HOLY TRINITY
    • Major heresies
    • 4. Tritheism
    • (The Heresy – the Father, the Son and the Holy
    • Spirit are three separate gods)
    • This is extreme opposite of previous three
    • Compromises on eternal, co-existence, equal
    • But separates as three distinct gods
    • Rejects the doctrine of co-inhering
    • Look back to our studies – slides 7; 22
    • 1 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience
    • and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ
    • Read Mat. 28: 20
  • HOLY TRINITY
    • What Bible teaches of the deity of Jesus
    • Mystery of incarnation (1. Tim.3: 16)
    • His incarnation (John1.14)
    • His eternal sonship (Heb. 1:2; Jn.1: 14)
    • His pre-existence (Mic.5: 2; Jn.17: 5)
    • His Eternal nature (Rev.1: 8)
    • His Deity (Ps.110: 1; 1.Jn 5: 20)
    • His humanity (Heb.2: 14)
    • His co-inhering (Jn.17: 21)
    • His ability to do his will (Jn.5: 21)
    • His claims “I AM” (Jn.8: 58; Jn.14: 6)
    • 1 Timothy 2: 5 For there is one God, and one mediator
    • between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
    • Who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen . (Rom.9: 5)
