THEOS - The Search for the One True God


The Begotten Belief

The biblical basis for belief in the true Son of God and the scriptural evidence for His essential divinity.

Patterns and Models

The Biblical use of patterns and models demonstrate the separate identity of the Father and Son while insuring the absolutely equal divine nature of both.

John's Legacy

The early Christians sustained their belief in the begotten Son of God who inherited His divinity from His Father. Chapter three traces the first two hundred years following the death of the apostle John.

The Falling Away

With the end of the apostolic era the church of Ephesus was replaced by the church of Smyrna. Antichrist would deny the truth that our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. Now belief in God and His Son was faced with tribulation and persecution.

Patrick

A comparison of Patrick's confession of faith, the Nicene Creed, and Early Christian Baptism follows the begotten belief into the fifth century.

The Little Horn

Three horns, three nations, were eliminated by the church of Rome because they opposed the little horn Papal power and her day of worship, her baptism, her traditions and her God.

The Church in the Wilderness

A remnant of believers in the one true God survived in a migration that can be traced from Syria and Armenia through the Balkans and into the mountains of Europe as the Church in the Wilderness protected the Word of God for over a thousand years.

The Awakening (Part 1)

The Reformation defended freedom of conscience against 16th century tradition with Sola Scriptura. Two young lawyers challenged orthodoxy. Martin Luther escaped the threats of Rome. Michael Servetus died at the hands of fellow Protestants--a martyr for religious liberty and his belief in the divinely begotten Son of God.

The Awakening (Part 2)

The Age of Enlightenment expanded scientific and theological inquiry. Isaac Newton, William Whiston, Joseph Priestly, famous for their academic achievements, were also deeply devoted to the Scriptural truth of the one true God--and for Newton, Whiston, John Gill, to His only begotten Son, brought forth from the divinity of the Father in eternity.

Thomas Jefferson

Though initially a deist, Jefferson grew in his Christianity over the years, even recognizing the growth of three independent bodies of believers who eventually merged to form The Christian Connection. The movement reached a half million adherents by 1844, united in a Biblical belief of one God and His "proper Son" begotten before all things.
