Is Romans 6:3-4 proof for ONENESS?

Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

Romans 6:3-4
[3]Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
[4]Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

    I believe we become one with Christ. But really I believe you become one with Christ , when you are born again. I believe Water Baptism is a symbol of the believers union with Christ in His death, burial , and Resurrection. I believe we put the old man to death. Or rendered inoperative. ( Colossians 2:11. Says In Him you also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands , by putting off the body the sins of the flesh , by the circumcision of Christ. / 12/buried with Him in Baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through. Faith in in the working of zGod , who raised Him from He dead. ). You can read verses ( 13–15.)

    Certainly not proof of Oneness beliefs about the Godhead.

      It mentions Jesus and the Father, so I’d say it’s another verse against Oneness theology.

    Where exactly do Oneness Pentecostals stand in relation to orthodoxy?

    Are they in or out?

    This difference in the matter of words used during baptisms represents something far more important: a different view of the nature of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—what orthodox Christians refer to as the Trinity.

    Beginning about 1913, certain Pentecostal ministers began to ask, “What is the correct apostolic formula for baptizing believers?” Several ministers concluded that the correct formula, the one used by the apostles themselves, was found in Acts 2:38, where Peter proclaims, “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.”

    Attentive Bible readers will immediately ask, “But didn’t Jesus command the disciples to baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?” Indeed, that formula is found in Matthew 28:19. But Oneness Pentecostals just dont care WHEN asked if they believe in God the Father, Son, and Spirit, all Oneness Pentecostals would not know what to tell you and start twisting the BIBLE

      The scriptures reveal a distinct Father, a distinct Son, a distinct Spirit..
      To say or to name the THREE as distinct “persons” conjures in our imaginations the physical interpretation of the word ” person” ..and here is where the problem lies.
      A person is a human being who is an individual(Dictionary)
      So God is an individual…
      An individual is ”
      single human being as distinct from a group.//
      So can we say God is a person distinct from everyone…everything..distinct from creation…distinct from all PERSONS?
      The word DISTINCT could be the main point of argument ie if a thing or a person is distinct it has to have a relational value or standard….to sth or someone .eg
      single human being as distinct from a group.
      Lets define the word DISTINCT …
      1.
      recognizably different in nature from something else of a similar type.//
      Different in NATURE from sth else of a SIMILAR TYPE .
      Can this simple definition be explain the God head?

      Scriptures relating to the Father Son and Holy Spirit show the THREE TO BE DISTINCT FROM EACH OTHER though of SIMILAR TYPE but different NATURES…
      I once went for a foundational course and was taught this:
      The Father is the Creator
      The Son is the Administrator
      The Holy Spirit is the Executor…
      Three ” distinct persons” with three distinct tasks..
      But all these are human terms trying to explain the unexplainable…
      However, the scriptures especially in New Testament clearly reveal God as a TRIUNE being ..
      At Jesus Baptism in the Jordan the full Godhead were visibly revealed…
      A creation with the Father Only or the Son Only or the Holy Spirit Only doesn’t make sense..at all.
      A Oneness theology can’t fully explain a monotheistic God..ever.(my views Troy).

    //As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
    Matthew 3:16‭-‬17 NIV//
    Troy Day I just need this one scripture (not the whole brochure you sent me on how to witness to Oneness Cult.ure..)
    They are not in but out in relation to Orthodoxy..although they have some certain strong points…
    The Bible says whoever denies the Son doesn’t have the Father..(Two distinct persons) though one..like Troy Sr and Troy Jr. Same name different natures, very distinct from each other..
    John 3: 16 says For (God) so loved the world and sent His only begotten (Son)…these are two distinct persons..
    Am I getting mixed up?…
    I guess not.
    This verse shows two ” persons”:
    //always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    Ephesians 5:20 NIV//
    And this also:
    //The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
    Revelation 1:1 NIV//
    The revelation of Jesus which GOD gave Him..
    Two distinct persons..
    Satan has blinded the minds of unbelievers such they refuse two acknowledge such obvious verses…

    Is there a difference between 3 in 1, and 1 in 3? One of my teachers in Bible school said they were the same thing from different angles, and the fight between the AOG and Oneness Pentecostals was making a mountain out of a molehill. Just asking.

      Miller Isaac The doctrine of the Trinity did not originate from the early church, rather it was established in the content of divine revelation of both the OT and NT.
      For example, in the OT, we find plural words being applied to the one God (cf. Gen. 1:26; 3:22; 11:7; Eccl. 12:1; Isa. 6:3, 8; 54:5 et al.). In Isa. 9:6, the Messiah is identified as El gibbor (“mighty God”).[1] In Dan. 7:9-14, we find two objects of divine worship is presented—the Ancient of Days and the Son of Man. Further, there are many Angel of the Lord appearances (preincarnate Christ), such as to Hager (cf. Gen. 16:11-13); Abraham (cf. Gen. chaps. 18-19); Moses (cf. Exod. 3:1ff.); Gideon (cf. Judg. 6:11-24); Manoah (cf. Judg. 13:16, 21) et al. The angel of the Lord was not a created, indefinite angel. He was identified as God/YHWH and claimed He was the “the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob” (Exod. 3:6)—YHWH, yet a distinct person from another YHWH (cf. Gen. 19:24). For more information on the angel of the Lord see The Preincarnate Christ as the Angel of the Lord

      The NT contains many passages that clearly present the concept of the Trinity—cf. Matt. 28:19; John 1:1, 3, 18; 5:17-18; 14:23; 17:5; 20:28; Rom. 15:30; 2 Cor. 13:14; 4:4-6; Eph. 2:18; 2 Thess. 2:13; Titus 3:5-7; Heb. 1:1-12; 1 Pet. 1:2-3; 1 John 1:1-3; Rev. 5:13-14 and many more could be cited.

    • Reply June 8, 2019

      Paul L. King

      Romans 6:3-4 is no proof of oneness. Both oneness and trinitarians agree that we are baptized into Christ. Praise God for that agreement. Where we disagree is on just what that means and how it should be interpreted. The verses do show, however, that Jesus Christ and the Father are NOT the same, as the Father raised Jesus from the dead–Jesus did not raise Himself from the dead.

      Whos ignoring? I remember giving a direct answer to a verse you pointed out before and you ignored that. The Trinity is a doctrine. It is concise and orderly just as any doctrine should be. You dont have an orderly doctrine, if you did then you would be able to point us to a teacher that has it all layed out so he can be completely open as to what he believes.
