Monotheistic, Trinitarian, (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6-8; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14). Monotheistic (5:73; 112:1-4), denies the Trinity (5:73).
Jesus is God in flesh (Col. 2:9). Jesus is not God (5:17, 75).
Jesus was crucified (1 Pet. 2:24). Jesus was not Crucified, (4:157).
Jesus rose from the dead (John 2:19-20). Jesus did not rise from the dead.
Jesus was the Son of God (Mark 1:1). Jesus was not the Son of God (9:30).
Holy Spirit, 3rd person in the Godhead. He will bear witness of Jesus (John 14:26; 15:26). The Holy Spirit is the angel Gabriel (2:97; 16:102).
