**The Father is the one true God. Jesus, God's Son is not God the Son (Mk 12:28f; Jn 5:44; cf. John 17:3; 1 Cor. 8:6).
Superior explanations trump the idea of God as a Trinity.
**"Holy Spirit," God's power, emanates from God and accomplishes his work, empowering others to do his work also (Acts 1:5) or it is a name for God (Acts 5:1-4).
**By his resurrection (Heb. 4:14-15; 5:7-9) Jesus became David's final kingly heir, the Son-of-God-in-Power (2 Sam. 7:12-16; Heb. 1:5; Romans 1:3-4). As such, he holds the God-given position of being an exalted and glorified man, now literally seated at God's right hand, the mediator between God and man (Matt. 28:18; Acts 7:55-56; 1 Tim. 2:5).
**Jesus our model (Gal. 2:20) independently of inherent deity, resisted sin's tempation. How? By pioneering and trailblazing a life of faith (Heb. 12:2).
**A symbolic "type" of God's first son Adam (Luke 3:37; Rom. 5:14; 1 Cor. 15:45), Jesus qualified as the sacrificial Messiah and Lamb of God (Acts 2:36; Heb. 2:17; 4:15; 4:17, James 1:13).
**Visit The Human Jesus for an interesting, popular documentary on a number of questions impacting the nature of Jesus. Pro/Con theological perspectives are examined, with consideration given to the "Is Jesus God and/or man?" discussion.
**Visit The Trinity Debate between Unitarians and Trinitarians, held in December 2005.
