A problem for the Trinity

Share

 

There are some Trinitarians who use the following passages to try and claim that Jesus is God:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. (Matthew 28:18)

Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God (John 13:3)

So they claim that Jesus must be God because all things are given to him, all power, authority, and control.

For starters these two verses prove that Jesus is not God, because he is given power and authority, which shows he is not all powerful, and which shows he doesn't really own the power and authority, had he been God he would have already had it, but since he is a prophet, this is precisely what we expect to see, God giving Jesus power and authority.

Secondly, the Greek word that is used for all in the two above passages is called ‘pas’, anyone who has bothered to study the Greek will learn that when the word ‘pas’ is used, it does not literally have to mean everything.

But the Trinitarian has basically taken the verses literally, they have taken the word all (PAS) in the literal sense, and this creates more problems than it solves.

Let us assume that all power was given to Jesus, well if this is the case, then this means that the Father and Holy Spirit are left with no power at all. Think about it, if Jesus is literally given everything, then this means the others are left with nothing.

If I give someone all authority, and I mean literally all authority, then I am left with no authority at all, because I have just given the person everything. The only real solution to this problem is have to accept that the above two passages does not literally mean that Jesus was given everything.

Let’s respond to one possible Trinitarian response, a Trinitarian may say well sometimes person A can give authority to person B, but that does not mean that person A is left with no authority.

Well I would agree with this, however so this is not what you believe, nor is this what the passages states, the Trinitarian believes that God the Father literally gave everything to Jesus, you see, the Christian literal interpretation is causing them the most trouble, the passages according to the Trinitarian literal view does not say God gave power to Jesus, rather it says that God gave all power to Jesus, he gave him everything, hence this response will not work.
