Focus on Oneness Pentecostalism

21st Century Reformation Special Edition

Focus on Oneness Pentecostalism

21st Century Reformation presents its first Special Focus Edition on the Oneness Pentecostal view of God. J. Dan Gill, 21st CR Editor in Chief, indicates “We have high honor and regard for Oneness people, ministers and churches everywhere.” This edition shares with Oneness believers what some of their own ministers have concluded regarding the Oneness understanding of God and Jesus. J. Dan says “While the Trinity falls short of the true scriptural understanding of God, there are those of us who have concluded that our Oneness views also fall short in some important ways.”

In this edition, we have five videos of teachings by J. Dan Gill. He is a 3rd generation Oneness Pentecostal believer who now encourages his fellow Pentecostals to reconsider their view of God and Jesus. J. Dan’s teachings in this edition are of powerful presentations that he recently made in former Oneness churches in Texas and Wisconsin.

There are also some great articles including an excerpt from the writings of G. R. Davies of Australia. Davies, who is now deceased, was a popular speaker at UPCI conferences, camp meetings and churches around the world. We are honored to bring our viewers these materials from Davies’ book “Who Are You, Lord?”










A letter from a son to his father

This is a picture of a letter that was written by a son to his father back in March of 2014. It took another two years before the son was certain that the traditional “Oneness” doctrine did not represent the whole truth of the Apostle’s doctrine.

2014.03 letter - dolson t gould

When asked “did your dad accept your sincere desire to show him what GOD had revealed to you?”

Here is the son’s testimony:

At first he ignored my comment. He wrote me back, but didn’t even mention what I had written concerning this. He eventually began to try “helping” me see the Oneness in our phone conversations from time to time, over the course of 2 years. One day, after I had professed I was certain of my beliefs, we got into it pretty deep. After what may have been a hour or so, he said to me, “Son, God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself.” I replied, “Yes dad, it says God was IN Christ, not God was Christ.” He said a few more things after that, to which I very gently replied, “Well Dad, I just don’t see it like that anymore.”

We didn’t talk for a few days after that, but then out of the blue he called me, and sounded very excited. He said, “Son, I can’t believe this, but after 40 years of preaching this doctrine, I see I was wrong. “Jesus is the Son of God!” He later went on the tell me that when I told him, “Yes dad, it says God was IN Christ, not God was Christ,” something within him broke. He tried to fight it but my soft words at the end of our conversation caused him to “go back to look at it again,” he once told me. After a few days, it was clear to him, that he had missed it.

Needless to say, he and I are enjoying this journey together.

Here is the father’s testimony:

Yes, son I do….It was your love and gentleness that touched my heart…. when I said….”God was in Christ”, and your said ” In Christ ,not was Christ” that opened my eyes…. Since then I understand…..Jesus Christ is not the Father……

John 20:31, These things are written that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.

The Jewish people were waiting for a man, like Moses to come and speak God’s word to them. Deut. 18:18 ….the LORD will send a prophet like unto me….(a man).

Jesus himself even said, John 8:40…. I am a man that has told you the truth….
Peter said on day of Pentecost…..Acts 2:22……Jesus of Nazareth a man.

Jesus is a man not the Father. God the Father is a Spirit.
I’m still learning……but I can see it

Wait a minute…Jesus is God??!! Let’s bust this myth wide open.

“This Jesus, God raise up” (Acts 2:32)
“God has made him [Jesus] both lord and Christ.” (Acts 2:36)
“I thank my God through Jesus Christ…” (Rom. 1:8)
“He gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.” (Acts 7:55)
“Christ belongs to God.” (1 Cor. 3:23)
“And God is the head of Christ.” (1 Cor. 11:3)
“Blessed be the God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Cor. 1:3; Eph. 1:3)
“Jesus said…I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.” (Jo. 20:17)
“[Jesus said] I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God.” (Rev. 3:12)
“…that the God of our lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory…”(Eph. 1:17)
“This is eternal life, that they may know you the only true God, AND Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (Jo. 17:3)
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Tim. 2:5)

These are just a few of probably over a hundred New Testament scriptures which state very plainly that Jesus HAS a God. Therefore he cannot BE God. Jesus is the Son of God, not God the son. Philippians 2 and Colossians 1 must be understood in the light of this massive weight of scripture, instead of through the lens of tradition spawned by Greek/Egyptian philosophy. To believe that Jesus is God is blasphemy and should be jettisoned immediately and finally from anything claiming to be Christian teaching.


“Blessed [be] the LORD God of our fathers….” [Ezra 7:27]

The Israelites often referred to God as “The God of our Fathers.” This reference was first used by God himself when he spoke unto Isaac saying “I am the God of Abraham thy father…” [Gen 26:24] Jacob had a similar experience while dreaming of the angels going up and down on a ladder that reached to heaven. Yahweh said to him, “I [am] Yahweh God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac…” [Gen 28:13].

When God met Moses at the burning bush, he said to him, “I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob.” [Ex 3:6, 13, 15, 16 & 4:5]. Forty years later, after rehearsing the Ten Commandments in the ears of the children of Israel, and prior to stating the greatest of all commandments, Moses said, “Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do [it]; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as 👉Yahweh God of thy fathers 👈 hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel: Yahweh our God is one Yahweh and thou shalt love Yahweh thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. [Deut 6:3-5]

Various other times throughout the Old Testament scriptures, God was referred to as “The God of our Fathers; The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.”
[Deut 26:7, Judges 2:12, 1 Chron 29:18, 2 Chron 20:6, Daniel 2:23]

So then it should come as no surprise that Peter, when preaching to the Jews in the beginning of his ministry as an Apostle, referenced God in that same manner saying, “The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus [*]; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let [him] go.” [Acts 3:13]

And later, after being imprisoned for the preaching of the Gospel and miraculously set free, Peter and the other Apostles stood before the council and high priest and said,
The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.”
[Acts 5:30]

Brothers and Sisters, I submit unto you that the God of [their] fathers, The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, is none other than the God and Father of our Lord Jesus The Christ. They didn’t preach Jesus was that God, but rather they preached Jesus was the Son of the God of their fathers.

Now we can understand why Peter would write….

“Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…” [1Pet 1:3]

There is One God, the Father…and One Lord, Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. Amen.

[*] The Greek word used in this verse is pais – which means servant – so in actuality the verse is stating that GOD has glorified His servant i.e.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant Jesusthe one whom you delivered and disowned in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him. – Acts 3.13 NASB

Jesus Then And Now

This section provides some interesting information and compares scriptures, of Jesus then and now, when attempting to prove who Jesus is (or who he is not). One thing appears to be consistent with the scriptural presentation of Jesus; whoever Jesus was on Earth he is certainly the same person in Heaven with God today.

Jesus Christ The Same Yesterday,
Today and Forever

Hebrews 13:8)



On Earth & In Heaven


Jesus Was:

(While On Earth)


Jesus Is:

(While In Heaven)

Jesus Was a Man(Mark 15:39John 8:40Acts 2:22Romans 5:15) Jesus Is a Man(1 Timothy 2:5Acts 17:30-31)

(Acts 17:29-31) Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31 Because he [God] hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man [Jesus] whom he [God] hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him [Jesus] from the dead.


Jesus Was “the Son Of Man”(Matthew 8:209:616:1327Mark 10:3314:62) Jesus Is “the Son Of Man”(Acts 7:55-56Revelation 1:1314:14)


Jesus Was “the Son of God”(Hebrews 1:5) “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”

(Matthew 16:16) “And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”

(Matthew 8:2914:3327:42-4354Luke 1:353:224:418:28John 1:341:493:186:6910:3611:2720:31Acts 8:379:20Romans 1:42 Corinthians 1:19Galatians 2:20Ephesians 4:13)


Jesus Is “the Son of God”(Revelation 2:18) “And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God,who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass”
Jesus’ Father Was God(Hebrews 1:5) “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”

(Mark 16:16) “And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”

(2 Corinthians 11:31Ephesians 1:3173:141 Peter 1:32 John 1:3)

Jesus’ Father Is God(John 20:17) “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”

(Revelation 3:5) “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”

(Revelation 3:12) “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my Godwhich is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name”

(Revelation 3:21) “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”


Jesus Was The Lamb Of God(John 1:2936) Jesus Is The Lamb Of God(Revelation 5:1212:10-1113:821:1422-2322:13)


Jesus Was Mortal (He Died)NOTE: Death is caused by the separation of body and spirit:

(James 2:26Acts 2:30-32Luke 23:46Romans 5:81 Corinthians 15:3-4)

See also (Genesis 25:81735:29Job 14:10Mark 15:39Acts 5:51012:23)

Jesus Is Immortal (He Was Resurrected)(Revelation 1:18) “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

See also (John 2:2221:14;Romans 8:34;
1 Corinthians 15:20)

Jesus’ Purpose Was:(Luke 9:20-22) “He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. 21 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no manthat thing; 22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day


(John 3:17) “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”


(John 11:25-27) “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.”


(John 17:1-3) “These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee (you) the only true God, andJesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”


(John 20:31) “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God (not God); and that believing ye might have life through his name.”


(1 John 5:10-13) “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”


(Romans 10:9-11) “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”


See also: (Matthew 18:11Mark 10:45Luke 9:202212:8John 1:413:174:426:40;11:24-27;17:320:31Acts 3:19-211 Timothy 1:151 John 5:13:84:155:510-1320)


Jesus’ Purpose Is:(Hebrews 4:14) “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.”


(Hebrews 9:24) “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which arethe figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:”


(Romans 8:34) “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again,who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.”


(Hebrews 7:25) “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”


(Revelation 20:6) “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him [Christ] a thousand years.”


(Revelation 5:4-7) “And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7 And he [Jesus] came and took the book out of the right hand of him [God] that sat upon the throne.”


(1 Corinthians 15:24-28 (NLT)) “After that the end will come, when he [Jesus] will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. 25 For Christ must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet. 26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under his authority.” (Of course, when it says “all things are under his authority,” that does not include God himself, who gave Christ his authority.) 28 Then, when all things are under his authority, the Son will put himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave his Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.”

Jesus Is at the “Right Hand” of GodMost scriptures reflect Jesus as standing or sat down at the right hand of God. It is irrelevant whether the “right hand” of God is stated as being figurative or literal, either way it denotes Jesus at a position to someone other than himself.

(Acts 7:55-56Romans 8:34Ephesians 1:20Colossians 3:1Hebrews 1:3Hebrews 8:1Hebrews 10:12Hebrews 12:21 Peter 3:22)



The truth about the Father and Son

Biblical Christianity and Judaism
are Monotheistic religions

Sh’ma Yisra’eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad. (Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One) “Hear, Israel: YHWH is our God. YHWH is ONE.” (Deu 6:4 )

What did Jesus believe about God (Yahweh)?

Jesus himself repeated the Sh’ma

Jesus believed and worshipped a God, therefore he is not God himself

Jesus feared and trusted in his God

Jesus prayed to God like us. He depended on God – therefore he is not God

Reflect | Examine | Re- Examine

1. If Jesus is ‘I am’ and the ‘Everlasting Father’ as they interpret, then who does he pray to?
2. Why does he pray if he is fully God? Why does he require help from other persons of the trinity?
3. Does he still pray every night in heaven to the other persons of the trinity?
4. Why does he not pray to the third person of the Trinity and only the 1st person?
5. If Jesus is the ONE God and ONLY God then why does he need to appeal to the other persons of the trinity?
6. Does Jesus pray to the trinity or the Father?
7. Was one part of Jesus praying and the other part of Jesus supplying the answers?
8. Did the human Jesus at times not know that he was in control of the universe? Or did he loose control during the days of his flesh?
9. Does he have to pray a whole night like a human if he was fully divine?
10. Obviously he was eager to pray at morning, at night and live a prayerful life. Were these requests genuine or to make a show?
11. Trinitarians say, he does miracles you say he was in control, but when he prays he was not in control – Is this possible?
12. Clearly, Jesus had not read the Nicean documents and creeds to know he was FULL God?
Jesus did not pray to the fully divine Jesus but to his God the Father!
The trinitarian interpretation is completely illogical, contrary to Jesus’ teachings and actions. The truth is not found in trinitarian interpretation! Hypostatic union is a lame excuse to coverup the obvious faults in the Trinitarian belief. One fault leads to more faults.
“Put everything to the test. Accept what is good” (CEV 1 Thessalonians 5:21)
God and Jesus are not equal.

God is the Father and greater than the son whom he begot/created through Mary.

Jesus denied he was God. Jesus claimed he was a man. Jesus gave glory to God!

Jesus the misunderstood prophet of God. The scriptures foretold that Jesus would be a MAN like Moses

Prophets before Jesus could also do miracles and were sent to represent God

Do not be confused when men do miracles in God’s name or power.

Worshipping Men

Most Christians misunderstand Jesus. The power and authority Jesus had was given to him by his God!

It should be obvious by now why the bible does not use the word Trinity? Reject the trinity and embrace the truth! There is only ONE GOD – the Father. Jesus was ‘made Lord’ by his God and Father.

Understanding Biblical One: 1=1
Do you see three?

Believe in Jesus. He never claimed to be God. He was spiritually one with the Father and was the son of God. Jesus never tried to be equal with God (like Adam and Eve once tried through the temptation of the serpent).

Do not listen to the serpent: “for God knows that in the day you eat it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God” (Gen 3:5)

Since Jesus was a man, he died like other men. The great victory was that God raised him to eternal life.

Jesus confessed of limitations and therefore it was impossible for him to be God

Only the Father is the source of Eternal life.

The son obtained eternal life as we also hope to have one day. The son himself confessed to this obvious truth.

Don’t believe the lies they teach. Trinity, Hypostatic union, God the son, etc phrases are post apostolic inventions of ignorant Greek/Roman Christians

Beware of Greek/Roman scribes who have changed scriptures with their lies

(Falsified proof texts)

Jesus spoke of spiritual oneness and not literal oneness.

Claim: Jesus’ teachings were his own:

Jesus disagrees: ‘My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.’ Joh 7:16

Claim: Jesus is equal to the Father

Jesus disagrees: ’The Father is greater than I.’ Joh 14:28

Claim: Jesus does miracles and works of his own because he is fully God

Jesus disagrees: ’the Son can do nothing of his own accord,’ Joh 5:19

Claim: Jesus is immortal and has divine attributes

Jesus disagrees: ’For as the Father has life in himself, so he has GRANTED the Son also to have life in himself.’ Joh 5:26

Understanding Immanuel

The scriptures point to the fact that Jesus has a God, Therefore he is not God.

All these references are after Jesus was resurrected.

This is what the apostles believed and preached.

The song of Jesus & Moses (the great prophets of God) to the Almighty God

An examination of the life of Jesus as witnessed by the gospels show us that he was born, he lived, & he trusted his God. He was a great prophet and the son of God who was murdered and died!

He was brought back to life by God and has become the saviour of the world

Why is Jesus our Lord and Saviour?

Jesus was appointed by God to show us the way to righteous living and to save us from death.

When you believe in the words of the prophet, you are actually believing in God, because the prophet delivers the word of God

Seek the True God of Christ

60 of 100: Jesus was a MAN attested/approved by God (YaHWeH) with mighty works and wonders and signs that God (YaHWeH) DID through him and not ‘The gods are come down’

Jesus was a MAN attested/approved by God

Yahweh is our God. Yahweh is one.

During a visit to the Vatican in 2016, the Audio tour #25 had this phrase:

Jesus Christ who works miracles to confirm his divinity


Often Jesus’ extraordinary miracles is seen as sign of his divinity by trinitarians.

Jesus himself said:
Joh 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
According to Jesus, any other human who believes can not only do the miracles he did, but he can do even greater miracles. So Jesus does not encourage the Trinitarian’s argument for his divinity based on his miracles.
In fact, according to Peter, Jesus miracles showed him that Jesus was a MAN who was attested by God (YaHWeh) and not that Jesus was divine:

Act 2:22  “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth,

View original post 2,115 more words

Who can raise the dead, but God?

Image may contain: 2 people, text

Who can raise the dead, but God?

But men including Jesus raised the dead.
Often Jesus’ extraordinary miracles is seen as sign of his divinity by trinitarians.

Jesus himself said:
Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

According to Jesus, any other human who believes can not only do the miracles he did, but he can do even greater miracles. So Jesus does not encourage the Trinitarian’s argument for his divinity based on his miracles.

In fact, according to Peter, Jesus miracles showed him that Jesus was a MAN who was attested by God (YaHWeh) and not that Jesus was deity:

Act 2:22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know
Act 2:23 this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men.
Act 2:24 God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.

When Jesus performed the miracles, he gave the glory to his Father, but when trinitarians explain the miracles they take away glory from the Father

Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, (John 10:25 ESV)

John 5:36 ” But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.”

None of the prophets or Jesus boasted or self glorified themselves – For they all gave glory to God. Once Moses struck the rock twice and his words fell, so God does not allow him to enter the promised land.

So according to Jesus the miracles he did proved that the Father was with him. When Jesus or any human does these miracles it proves that God is with that person. The miracles proved that God had send Jesus, not that Jesus was God. If the miracles of Jesus proves Jesus’ deity, then Moses should also be deity. Can a man split the Red Sea or kill the first born of Egypt? God did those miracles through Moses.

Jesus, Elijah and Elisha did the miracles they did by the anointing of the holy spirit.

Jesus gives the glory to the Father, but can trinitarians do likewise?
Can you trust Jesus’ words?
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, the son can do nothing of himself.” (John 5:19)
“I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath taught me; I speak these things and he that sent me is with me, the Father hath not left me alone, for I do always those things that please him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, the son can do nothing of himself.”
(John 8:28-29; 5:19)
