How Strong’s Concordance Misleads on God and Trinity

Here is the first part of the entry for theos (God)
(Strong's #G2316):
1) a god or goddess, a general name of deities or divinities
2) the Godhead, trinity
a) God the Father, the first person in the trinity
b) Christ, the second person of the trinity
c) Holy Spirit, the third person in the trinity


No text is cited for( 2).
There are 11,000 occurrences of the words for God (Elohim,Adonai, YHVH, theos) and never once do they designate a Triune God. No Bible writer ever meant the Trinity when they said “God.”

Note that Strong’s will also not show you the crucial difference between Adonai (Lord) and adoni (my lord) in Psalm 110:1. Jesus is adoni , my lord (lower-case “l”).

Serious confusion arises when Trinitarians try to explain that “Jesus is God,” that God cannot die, but that the Son of God did die!

“So when we say that Jesus is God, we are saying that within the one person who is Christ is the human nature and the divine nature. Therefore, we see that Jesus is God because he has both the nature of man and of God.

But when Jesus died on the cross, it was not his divine nature as God that died. It was the human nature that died. Dying is a biological function that was reserved only for the human nature of Christ when he died on the cross...

“So, Jesus is both divine and human; that is, he is both God and man. When we say that Jesus is God and that Jesus died on the cross, we are not saying that the God-nature died. Rather, we are saying the person of Christ died, and that the person of Christ had divine attributes” (Matt Slick, carm.org)..
All this is so much “fog language” based on post-biblical creeds.

Lies I Told Myself

I used to believe in the Trinity. I wasn’t trying to say 1+1+1=1. Instead I was saying 1x1x1=1.
Problem: when multiplying, dimensions are automatically introduced. If I calculate the volume of a box, I can say 1 meter x 1 meter x 1 meter = 1 meter squared. 1 meter does NOT equal 1 meter squared. In other words, when numbers are multiplied, something greater — something different — is created. I cannot say 1 meter x 1 meter x 1 meter = 1 meter. As Gods cannot be squared — that would imply that they are not complete or all-encompassing in themselves — the mathematical analogy 1x1x1=1 does NOT apply. (As soon as a number is applied to anything , including God, the dimension factor is introduced. We cannot exclude it.)
