Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

ONE GOD, JESUS CHRIST ! (1 Corinthian 8:6)

“I Corinthian 8:6 yet for us there is but ONE GOD the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.”

'ONE GOD, Jesus Christ' !
ONE God the FATHER, or, ONE God and Father of ALL (Eph.4:6). Yet for us is but ONE God the Father (1 Cor. 8:6).
Jesus Christ said that He is the Father (John 10:30), (John 14:9 and Isa. 63:16).
The Prophet Isaiah has foretold that the Lord Jesus Christ is the everlasting Father (Isa. 9:6).
In (Jer. 3:19), the Lord Jesus Christ said, “I said, that you shall call Me, My Father and not turning away from following Me.”

NO! There isn't one person called God and another person called Lord. It is God who is the Lord (Deuteronomy 7:9), and He is the ONLY God our saviour (Jude 1:25).
In (Isa. 43:10 – 12) the Lord Jesus said, “You are My witnesses, declares the Lord Jesus, and My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He, before Me there was no God formed, and there will be none after Me.”


And neither is there ONE God called Yahweh or Jehovah “from whom are all things and we exist for Him”.
The Scriptures said that ALL things was made by the Lord Jesus Christ and NOTHING came into being apart from the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:3-10 and Col. 1:15-20).

It is a fallacy to believe and teach that 1 Corinthian 8:6 teaches that there is one God called Yahweh or Jehovah “from whom are all things”, when the Scriptures clearly teaches that all
things were created by the Lord Jesus Christ and for the Lord Jesus Christ and nothing came into being apart from the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:3-10 and Col. 1:15 - 20).

And it is equally erroneous to believe and teach that a god called Yahweh or Jehovah who sent a man called Jesus to create the heavens and the earth.

The Scriptures said in (Jude 1:25) 'To the only GOD who is our SAVIOUR'.
The Scriptures does NOT say that there is one person called 'GOD' and another person called SAVIOUR.
To the contrary, Jude 1:25 said that the saviour Jesus Christ is the only God.

So, 1 Corinthian 8:6 means, 'Yet for us there is but ONE GOD and that is Jesus Christ who made ALL things and we exist for Him, and everything was made by that ONE God who is the LORD Jesus Christ and we were created by Him'.


Do you believe that the Scriptures teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ is God ?
