STUDIES ON THE GODHEAD CONTROVERSY.

Origin of the word “Godhead” : – From Middle English godhede, equivalent to god +‎ -head (“-hood”). First attested in the Ancrene Riwle (ca. 1225); compare godhood and Dutchgodheid as well as GermanGottheit.” – https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/godhead.

GODHEAD, n. god’hed.
Godship; deity; divinity; divine nature or essence; applied to the true God, and to heathen deities.
A deity in person; a god or goddess.” – Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary.

There has arisen over the last twenty to twenty five years, a tremendous controversy within some sections of Christendom, over the Godhead. The World-wide Web is full of sites promoting what is called “the One True God” movement beliefs. These beliefs have been aggressively promoted and have been made into test issues in many fellowships and Bible study groups.

The main teachings of this movement can be summarized as follows: –

1.] There is only one God – The Father.

2.] They believe that our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ had an origin, a beginning sometime in eternity, when God the Father created or begat him as the literal Son of God. If they view Jesus as being equal with the Father, this equality is in a restricted or limited sense. They also believe that the Father alone is Jehovah, and also, that the Father is the only true God. In reality, they deny the full Deity and Eternal existence of our Lord Jesus Christ.

3.] And the other belief that generally accompanies this downgrading of Jesus Christ, denies the Personhood of the Holy Spirit.

4.] They believe that the commonly held belief of the Three Person Godhead, which is known as the Trinity doctrine, is erroneous, and that it had its origins at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, through Roman Catholic influence. Any professed Christian who still believes in the Trinity doctrine, is viewed as following in the footsteps of the Roman Church.

I have been Biblically researching into the various issues of this controversy for close to twenty years now. So, it is time to put before the reader some of my findings in the various Study Documents I have written on this subject over the years. As the reader examines the various Study Documents on this “PAGE”, I pray that the reader will be blessed and guided by the Holy Spirit, into the Biblical truth of the Godhead, so that they will not be blown around by all the various winds of doctrine that are blowing with gale force strength, throughout Christendom!

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.” – 2 Corinthians 13:14.
