1 Timothy 2:5 – There is One God

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
1 Timothy 2:6 who gave himself as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times. – World English

Trinitarians often give this verse as proof that there is only one true God. We provide links here to some online sites of trinitarians who use this scripture to prove that there is only one true God: Ankerberg; alleged “truediscernment” site; alleged “GoingDeep” site; alleged “Mystery Solved With Messiah Jesus” site; lightnercrew; newcreationperson; (we, of course, do not agree with the conclusions of these authors).

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
1 Timothy 2:6 who gave himself as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times.

The scripture at 1 Timothy 2:5 is indeed a very good verse to show that there is only one true God; however, if this verse proves there is only one true God, who is that only one true God proven to be in this verse? Trinitarians evidently fail to notice, or wish their readers not to notice, that Jesus is not included there as the only true God, but only the God and Father of Jesus (Ephesians 1:3; 1 Peter 1:3) is spoken of in the as the “one God”. Thus, these verses prove the only true God to be one person, not three persons. The word “God” is used only of one person, not three persons.  In fact, Jesus is excluded in these verses from the being the “one God”, since Jesus is described as the mediator between the “one God” and man.

Trinitarians often cite 1 Timothy 2:5 as proof that Jesus is still a man, although the scripture does not say that, but it does say that the man Christ Jesus gave himself a ransom for all. The trinitarian uses the imagined “dual nature” or alleged “hypostatic union” dogma to imagine and see in the verse what is not there.  See:

    For there is one God – the God here is referring to the supreme being in general.
    between God and men – the God here refers to the Father.
    the man Christ Jesus – refers to the human nature of the Son.

    Question:
    If Jesus has only one nature; then why would Paul say “the man Christ Jesus”. Should he just say “he is Christ Jesus”?
