Investigating the GODHEAD CONTROVERSY in Christianity

One God, One Lord, One Spirit

Godhead | Websters 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language

GOD’HEAD, noun god’hed.

1. Godship; deity; divinity; divine nature or essence; applied to the true God, and to heathen deities.

2. A deity in person; a god or goddess.

Triquetra or Trinity Symbol

Occult symbol used in witchcraft and many occult practices and also in many Hollywood movies and TV shows. Also used in apostate Christianity to depict the trinity — a three person, one god being.

So what is the meaning of a Triquetra?

The Triquetra essentially means a three-cornered symbol that connects to the power of three.

The Celts worshipped the idea that everything important in the world came in threes.


The power of three examples:

  • Three stages of life: life, death, and rebirth
  • Three elements: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
  • Three domains: earth, sea and sky, past, present and future.

Babylonian Trinity or Triad

The three main gods of the occult trinity in Babylon was made up of Anu, Bel-Marduk, and Ea.

“The ancient Babylonians recognised the doctrine of a trinity, or three persons in one god—as appears from a composite god with three heads forming part of their mythology, and the use of the equilateral triangle, also, as an emblem of such trinity in unity” (Thomas Dennis Rock, The Mystical Woman and the Cities of the Nations, 1867, p. 22-23).

What is the truth from Scripture regarding the Godhead?


  • Is the Godhead made up of a trinity god, a mysterious three persons who are a one god being?
  • Is the Godhead a trio or tritheist group of gods—God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit?
  • Or is the term Godhead actually dealing with the one true God, the Father, of whom are all things; God’s only-begotten divine Son, by whom are all things; and the representative omnipresence of the Holy Spirit, which proceeds from the one true and living God and His beloved divine+human Son?

While confusion on this fundamental pillar of the Christian religion abounds, Scripture, taken “as it reads,” is very clear as to the actual truth of the matter. 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 is a foundational teaching regarding this most important subject.

Note: There are no terms “God the Son” or “God the Holy Spirit” found in Scripture or in the writings of Mrs. Ellen G. White. Also, the false teaching of three co-eternal gods is polytheism or tritheism, which denies the monotheistic or one God teaching of Scripture. There is one Source of eternal life in the universe, the life of God the Father, which He gave to His only begotten Son. Jesus said, “I live by the Father.” John 6:57. In Jesus is life, God’s life; original, unborrowed, underived life. Jesus also said, “The Father that dwelleth in me; He doeth the works.” John 14:10.

Having been on each side of the fence; once a trinitarian (three co-eternal divine persons who are mysteriously one god being), with tritheist leanings, and now a believer in the scriptural heavenly trio: one God, one Lord, and one Spirit, – Ephesians 4:4-6. I will here endeavor to set forth the truth regarding the Godhead (God the Father, who is all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, God’s only-begotten Son, who is all the fullness of the Godhead manifested; and the Holy Spirit, which comes in all the fullness of the Godhead — of God and of Christ) from the words of divine inspiration.

Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.” – Deuteronomy 6:4.

Scripture teaches that Jehovah, our Father, sent His only begotten Son from heaven to our world to save fallen humanity. See John 3:16-17. Jehovah God and His beloved Son desire to share with us the energizing presence of the Holy Spirit to empower and encourage us in our journey towards the eternal realm.

Is God one, two or three? Is Jesus God in nature, in personality, or both? Is the Holy Spirit a person or only a divine influence? Did God have a divine only-begotten Son in heaven, before our world was created? Words of Inspiration, given by God Himself, will give us clear answers to these questions!

The goal of this website is to present inspired evidence and useful resources to help you discover the truth as it is in Jesus the Christ (the Messiah), the only-begotten Son, of the one true and living God. Be sure to carefully and prayerfully read 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 in the KJV Bible.

Signs of the Times, May 3, 1899, par. 18

In the judgment pronounced upon Moses, the Israelites had unmistakable proof that He who had wrought such a wonderful deliverance for them in bringing them from Egyptian bondage, was not Moses, but the mighty Angel who was going before them in all their travels, and of whom the Lord had said, “Behold, I send an angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice; provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions; for my name is in him.” The Lord had committed to Moses the burden of leading his people, while the mighty Angel, even the Son of God, went before them in all their journeyings, and directed their travels. Because they were so ready to forget that God was leading them by his Angel, and to ascribe to man that which God’s power alone could perform, he had proved them, and tested them, to see whether they would obey him. At every trial they failed. Instead of believing in, and acknowledging, God, who had strewn their path with evidences of his power, and signal tokens of his care and love, they distrusted him, and ascribed their leaving Egypt to Moses, charging him as the cause of all their disasters.

Signs of the Times, September 30, 1880, par. 7

While they trust to the guidance of human authority, none will come to a saving knowledge of the truth. Like Nathanael, we need to study God’s Word for ourselves, and pray for the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit.”

Ellen G. White

Lift Him Up, p. 81.8

For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) but to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

John 17:3

God is the Father of Christ; and Christ is the Son of God. To Christ has been given an exalted position. He has been made equal with the Father. All the councils of God are opened unto His Son.

“From my girlhood I have been given plain instruction that God is a person, and that Christ is ‘the express image of His person.’”

Ellen G. White

Manuscript 137, 1903

Christians should bear in mind that God has a personality as verily as has Christ. … Christ is the express image of His Father’s person and character.

Ellen G. White

17LtMs, Ms 130, 1902, par. 34

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

1872 Fundamental Biblical Principles

I – That there is one God, a personal, spiritual being, the creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, and eternal; infinite in wisdom, holiness, justice, goodness, truth, and mercy; unchangeable, and everywhere present by his representative, the Holy Spirit. OT: Exodus 20:2-3; Deuteronomy 6:4; Deuteronomy 4:35; Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 42:8; Isaiah 43:10-11; Isaiah 45:5-6; Malachi 2:10; Psalm 139:7. NT: John 17:3; Acts 3:13, 26; John 4:22-23; 1 Corinthians 8:4-7; 1 Corinthians 11:3; Galatians 3:20; Ephesians 4:6; 1 Timothy 2:5; James 2:19.

II – That there is one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Eternal Father, the one by whom he created all things, and by whom they do consist; that he took on him the nature of the seed of Abraham for the redemption of our fallen race; that he dwelt among men, full of grace and truth, lived our example, died our sacrifice, was raised for our justification, ascended on high to be our only mediator in the sanctuary in heaven, where, through the merits of his shed blood, he secures the pardon and forgiveness of the sins of all those who penitently come to him; and as the closing portion of his work as priest, before he takes his throne as king, he will make the great atonement for the sins of all such, and their sins will then be blotted out (Acts 3:19) and borne away from the sanctuary, as shown in the service of the Levitical priesthood, which foreshadowed and prefigured the ministry of our Lord in heaven. See Leviticus 16; Hebrews 8:4, 5; 9:6, 7; 2 John 1:3.

A liar is one that presents false theories and doctrines. He who denies the personality of God and of His Son Jesus Christ is denying God and Christ. “If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son and in the Father.” [Verse 24.] If you continue to believe and obey the truths you first embraced regarding the personality of the Father and the Son, you will be joined together with them in love.

Ellen G. White

Preaching Contrary to Established Doctrines

“The angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.” We see here that the men in authority are not always to be obeyed, even though they may profess to be teachers of Bible doctrine. There are many today who feel indignant and aggrieved that any voice should be raised presenting ideas that differ from their own in regard to points of religious belief. Have they not long advocated their ideas as truth? So the priests and rabbis reasoned in apostolic days: What mean these men who are unlearned, some of them mere fishermen, who are presenting ideas contrary to the doctrines which the learned priests and rulers are teaching the people? They have no right to meddle with the fundamental principles of our faith. But we see that the God of heaven sometimes commissions men to teach that which is regarded as contrary to the established doctrines. Because those who were once the depositaries of truth became unfaithful to their sacred trust, the Lord chose others who would receive the bright beams of the Sun of Righteousness, and would advocate truths that were not in accordance with the ideas of the religious leaders. And then these leaders, in the blindness of their minds, give full sway to what is supposed to be righteous indignation against the ones who have set aside cherished fables. They act like men who have lost their reason. They do not consider the possibility that they themselves have not rightly understood the word. They will not open their eyes to discern the fact that they have misinterpreted and misapplied the Scriptures, and have built up false theories, calling them fundamental doctrines of the faith.

But the Holy Spirit will, from time to time, reveal the truth through its own chosen agencies; and no man, not even a priest or ruler, has a right to say, You shall not give publicity to your opinions, because I do not believe them. That wonderful “I” may attempt to put down the Holy Spirit’s teaching. Men may for a time attempt to smother it and kill it; but that will not make error truth, or truth error. The inventive minds of men have advanced speculative opinions in various lines, and when the Holy Spirit lets light shine into human minds, it does not respect every point of man’s application of the word. God impressed his servants to speak the truth, irrespective of what men had taken for granted as truth.

Present Dangers

Even Seventh-day Adventists are in danger of closing their eyes to truth as it is in Jesus, because it contradicts something which they have taken for granted as truth, but which the Holy Spirit teaches is not truth. Let all be very modest, and seek most earnestly to put self out of the question, and to exalt Jesus. In most of the religious controversies, the foundation of the trouble is, that self is striving for the supremacy. About what?—About matters which are not vital points at all, and which are regarded as such only because men have given importance to them. (See Matthew 12:31-37; Mark 14:56; Luke 5:21; Matthew 9:3.)
