Hi Esdras, 

You should quote the material you’re asking about. Do you think we have a website of thousands of pages memorized, or that the particular words and context they’re used in aren’t important? On either count you’d be wrong. 

Here’s the portion: 

In order to promote the doctrine of the trinity, the writers of GotQuestions read into what the Scriptures say according to their natural minds and indoctrination of men. Let’s look at some common verses used to prop up the egregious pagan doctrine of trinitarianism:

Genesis 1:26-27 JPS
(26) And God said: “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”
(27) And God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

Why “Us” and “Our” in verse 26, since God is singular in verse 27, it saying “He,” not “They”?

To begin, God was not alone:

Job 38:4-7 MKJV
(4) Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell if you have understanding!
(5) Who has set its measurements, if you know? Or who has stretched the line on it?
(6) On what are its bases sunk, or who cast its cornerstone,
(7) when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Genesis 3:22-24 JPS

(22) And the LORD God said: “Behold, the man is become as one of Us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever.”
(23) Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
(24) So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way to the Tree of Life.

He was speaking with the cherubim, describing the situation and their mission. So there are others with the LORD God.

Aside from the sons of God who were with God at the creation, there are also the cherubim to whom He said, “To become as one of Us….” So who can doubt that these angelic beings are made in the image of God? How else can they represent Him and His glory to men? 

“And the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub to the threshold of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the LORD. And the sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard as far as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when He speaks” (Ezekiel 10:4-5 ESV).

“Above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail” (Hebrews 9:5 ESV).

Why do you ask, Esdras?

Esdras, I answered the questions of your July 19th email, which you haven’t acknowledged or answered the questions I posed to you in return. You can see that letter in the thread below. 

There’s no point in answering further questions from you. And why isn’t your Baptist ministry helping you? Have you confessed masturbation to your overseers, and what have they said about it?

How old are you, Esdras? Do you live with your father? He may have wrong doctrines, but you have been under his authority and need to get honest with him.

Hi Esdras, 

We aren’t having meetings anymore, but you may register on the Forum and interact with us there. 

But first, begin interacting now by telling us how your talk went with your father. That’s the step we told you to take and you agreed about getting honest with him about your masturbation. We haven’t heard back from you on this. What happened? How can you make progress and gain understanding if you aren’t obedient? Faith and obedience overcome social anxiety and all fears.

Paul

Si Dios Está Con Nosotros, ¿Por Qué Aprender en Otro Lugar?
De: Natalia Para: The Path of Truth Enviado: Jueves, 31 de Marzo, 2016 10:03 AM Asunto: Tengo una pregunta  Hola queridos hermanos,  He estado leyendo en su sitio web, ya que me lo encontré mientras trataba de buscar falsos profetas. En primer lugar, quiero darles las gracias por el trabajo que le dedican y el tiempo que se toman en hacer todo esto. Yo sólo tengo una pregunta, que me tiene bastante desesperada: realmente, ¿en qué maestro se puede confiar hoy en día? Miren, yo soy una cristiana que nací de nuevo hace casi 4 años y yo solo dependo de la Biblia y de lo que enseña. Aun así, a veces me gusta ver videos en YouTube para obtener nuevas perspectivas y tal vez consejos, etc. Yo nunca los seguí completamente ni “adoré” a los maestros si saben a lo que me refiero (realmente algunas personas hacen eso; yo vi personas completamente enloquecer escuchando a algunos pastores de mega iglesias) ya que he podido identificar a los falsos profetas con la ayuda de nuestro Señor Jesucristo (alabado sea el Señor) y también de su sitio web, especialmente personas que en verdad usan a Cristo para promocionarse a sí mismos, lo cual me tiene un poco… ustedes saben… enojada y eso, porque detesto ese comportamiento egoísta y que Dios los perdone por sus pecados. Pero ahora estoy como que… “OK, ¿Dónde están los que realmente puedo creerles y escuchar?  ¿Saben de algunos ministerios o maestros que realmente enseñen lo que nos dice la Biblia?  Estaría muy contenta de recibir cu...
Walking with the Devil, Supposing He’s Jesus
From: Diane To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, March 22, 2016 7:01 PM Subject: Todd white Greetings, I just wanted to say that you grossly misrepresented Todd to the person who requested info on him.  First i have walked w our precious Savior 30+ years and I believe I have good discernment as I always ask The Holy Spirit for wisdom. Todd White continually references a daily taking up our cross, dying to self that Christ may be glorified in our walk w him and  being compelled by the love of Christ shed abroad in our hearts. These are my words expressing what I hear from this humble and powerful in Christ,brother. He speaks of pure love the way Christ has loved us.  I dont know what you have listened to or with what kind of ear but I'd say you are judging a mans heart, walk, and motives. Can the Lord say of you - you have grown so that you no longer miss the mark? I think not. T White never exalts himself, ministry, he exalts Christ. He is a person who gets it. What love The Father has... Rethink your words because I have seen many a false teacher, he my friend is not one. Context, growth, maturity, we all move forward by the grace of God. Just saying. If a man be converted and forgiven of so so much, they love much and it may seem zealous because most Christians have not learned true gratitude for the cross , the blood, and adoption as a true son or daughter in real experience.  From: Diane To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, March 22, 2016 7:58 PM Subj...
A Lawless One is Easily Offended at His Unworthiness

Apparently "your deffintion of a false teacher " is incorrect .      deffintion of false teacher.   " having a form of Godliness but dening the power there of "   calling a work of God as being of  the devil. And i purposely printed devil in lower case and God in upper case letters. The devil is a loser . Jesus defeated the devil and we as believers as being joint heirs wirh Christ are more than just mere overcomers. Its high time christians / believers start to see their Identity in Christ !   Many just have a head knowledge and no heart knowledge.  What is our purpose here on earth? It is to have a " realationship with our heavenly Father. Also to show, live, and teach about God's love for everyone !  The self righteous ones seem to think otherwise . There is coming a day very soon that many many people will be surprised , for God will say depart from me for I never knew you !     Jesus it's all about " JESUS ! And his Love for all humans " Share Jesus's love and once people get a Revelation of it .... It Changes Lives !    For God himself said that not even his wrath could bring a man to repentance.
