The Only True God: PostScript

This is the postscript to my series of rebuttals to former Jehovah’s Witness turned Atheist Hector Heinz: https://answeringallah.com/the-bible-on-the-only-true-god-pt-5/ On April 5, 2001 Heinz included an addendum to his initial response to my paper where he attempts to rebut Robert Hommel’s article regarding the proper understanding of John 17:3. Aside from Heinz erroneously attributing the article […]

The Bible on the Only True God Pt. 5

I now arrive at the fifth segment of my rebuttal: https://answeringallah.com/the-bible-on-the-only-true-god-pt-4/ Heinz: The Dictionary of the Bible by Catholic Jesuit John L. McKenzie, S.J. God, p. 317,says “The unique character of Yahweh is the answer to the question about the monotheism of early Israel. Monotheism as a speculative affirmation is simply not found in the […]

The Bible on the Only True God Pt. 4

We now arrive at the fourth part of my refutation: https://answeringallah.com/the-bible-on-the-only-true-god-pt-3/ Heinz: So we have only one true, almighty God, Jehovah, and he is the Father (Is 64:8), which, according to Trinitarian theology, the Son cannot be. And when we break it down, Stafford is correct in his assertion of almighty God being the archetype, […]

The Bible on the Only True God Pt. 3

I resume my refutation to Heinz: https://answeringallah.com/the-bible-on-the-only-true-god-pt-2/ Heinz As D.S. Russell writes: “There is ample evidence to show that [the OT] conception of monotheism was held in conjunction with a belief in a spiritual world peopled with supernatural and superhuman beings who, in some ways, shared the nature, though not the being, of God” (The […]

The Bible on the Only True God Pt. 2

I continue from where I left off: https://answeringallah.com/the-bible-on-the-only-true-god-pt-1/ Another problem with Stafford’s analogy of Christ and Solomon is that it serves to discredit the JW position. It is common for JWs to use the argument that since Michael and Jesus share similar functions they must be one and the same. An example of such reasoning […]

The Bible on the Only True God Pt. 1

Sam Shamoun’s Thorough Reply to Former Jehovah’s Witness turned Atheist, Hector Heinz. Unless otherwise stated, all scriptures are from the American Standard Version 1901 A Partial Reply to http://pionet.net/~cultrsch/biblical_monotheism_examined.htm Heinz: The classic argument usually lies with a few scriptures, like John 17:3: “And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, […]

JOHN 17:3: ONLY TRUE GOD

BY ROBERT HOMMEL “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” John 17:3 New International Version (NIV) Commentary Jesus states emphatically that eternal life is this:  Knowing the Father in an intimate way as well as His Son.  Salvation depends on knowing both Father and Son.  […]

MUHAMMAD: THE ANTAGONIZING WAR-MONGER

In this post I am going to provide further evidence to rebut the oft-repeated Muslim claim that Muhammad did not wage offensive wars against unsuspecting victims who hadn’t even heard of Muslims, let alone threaten or oppress them. This post will also refute the assertion that jihad is merely defensive in nature. According to the […]

THE REDEMPTION OF MANKIND

The following was authored by the late Christian theologian and apologist Dr. Labib Mikhail. I post it here for the benefit of the readers. There are two things that demand a divine redemption: First, the Holiness of God. Second, the sin of man. It is a fact that all human beings are sinners. The apostle […]

BIBLICAL PROOFS OF THE TRINITY

The following was authored by the late Christian theologian and apologist Dr. Labib Mikhail. I post it here for the benefit of the readers. The belief that Jesus Christ is the Eternal Son of God is based on the belief in a Triune God. The belief in a Triune God is not a Christian invention, […]
