God CANNOT lie!
He considers false doctrines to be "damnable". Damnable = perdition,
pernicious. Actually, heresies are an abomination to Almighty God! Abomination = a detestation, idolatry. God HATES false doctrines and false teachers and false prophets who spout them shall be punished! Psalm 7:11; 78:58; Pro.19:27-28; Isa.1:4; 32:6; Jer.7:18; 23:16,32, 25:7; Mat.15:9; Mark 8:15; Acts 20:30; 2 Cor.11:4,13; Gal.5:9; Eph.5:6; Col.2:8; Tit.2:8; Heb.13:9; 2 John 1:10; Rev.2:14; 18:3,6; 20:15.

Oneness Doctrine Refuted
What is the Oneness Doctrine?
The Oneness doctrine is extremely popular among Evangelical and Oneness Pentecostal churches. It is a FALSE doctrine (damnable heresy 2 Pet.2:1) teaching that Jesus ALONE is God the Father, God the Son, AND God the Holy Spirit.
The Oneness doctrine is traced back to the fist and second century, but was revitalized in the twentieth century. In 1913, Pentecostals broke into two major divisions over the Oneness (Jesus only) doctrine. By 1983, 44% of all Evangelical churches believed the "Jesus only" doctrine.
Monarchianism . . . this doctrine teaches that God is one person, and opposes teaching of the Trinity.
Dynamic Monarchianism is also called Adoptionism. This doctrine teaches that Jesus was born a man, and did NOT preexist as God (John 1:1-3).
After Jesus proved Himself to be a sinless man, God adopted Him and filled Him with the Holy Spirit, thereafter making Him divine.
Dynamic Monarchianism is similar to the Jehovah's Witness doctrine that Jesus was created by God, and is not divine.
Modal Monarchianism is also called Sabellianism.
This doctrine teaches that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are modes (forms, manisfestations) of the one God. It denies that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are THREE separate individuals (Persons).
Oneness Pentecostal groups and "Jesus only" Evangelicals are modalists, composing the largest numbers of believers of this doctrine. Unfortunately, this FALSE doctrine (damnable heresy) is spreading to other churches today.
An outward sign of Oneness and "Jesus only" churches is that they baptize in the Name of Jesus only, instead of in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as Jesus commands in the Bible (Mat.28:19). They also believe they are praying to Jesus whenever they pray, no matter how they address their prayer.
Believers in the Oneness doctrine often twist the Scriptures by taking attributes and analogies of God in the Old Testament, and misapplying them to New Testament Scriptures relating to Jesus.
They take Old Testament Scriptures relating to God as the Creator (Gen. 1:1; 2:7).
They take New Testament Scriptures relating to Jesus as the Creator (Col. 1:16-19; etc.).
Then they conclude that God and Jesus are the SAME person, twisting the Scriptures, instead of rightly dividing the Word of Truth (2 Tim.2:15).
They ignore the FACT that these same verses contradict their doctrine when the whole council of God is rightly divided.
Genesis 1:1 Elohim is plural, showing there is more than one individual in the Godhead, as reflected in Genesis 1:26 where the word "Us" is used.
Col. 1:16-17 Paul tells us that all things were created through Jesus and for Jesus, indicating that He was active in Creation, as a separate individual (Person) from God the Father (Col. 1:19; Heb. 1:2).
They simply ignore other Scriptures that contradict their doctrine (Gen. 1:26; John 1:1-4; Heb. 1:2).
Scriptures Refuting The Oneness Doctrine
Many Scriptures REFUTE the Oneness doctrine. Below is just a partial list:
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (KJV)
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (KJV) . . . The plural word for "God" is used in regard to Creation, indicating that God (the Godhead, the Trinity) is composed of separate individuals (Persons).
Colossians 1:16-19 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; (KJV)
Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; (KJV) . . . Jesus was
active in the Creation as a separate individual (Person).
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (KJV) . . . Jesus is the "Word" and He was WITH God the Father from the beginning!
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. (KJV) . . . Jesus' words. . . . Jesus uses the PLURAL pronoun "we" which proves that He is a separate individual (Person) from God the Father.
1 Corinthians 11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? (KJV) . . . Christ is the head of mankind, and God is the head of Christ. This shows that Christ Jesus the Son and God the Father are separate individuals (Persons).
2 John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. (KJV) . . . John uses the word "both" showing that God the Father and God the Son are separate individuals (Persons).
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (KJV) . . . Jesus mediates between man and God the Father, revealing that He is a separate individual (from God.
1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: (KJV) John clearly mentions two distinct Persons of the Godhead here. Jesus the Son is our Advocate in Heaven, pleading our case before God, clearly showing that He is a separate individual (Person) from God the Father.
Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. (KJV) . . . Jesus is at the right Hand of God, interceding for us, showing that He is a separate individual from God the Father.
Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. (KJV) . . . The Holy Spirit intercedes for us, although in a different way than Jesus (Rom. 8:34), CLEARLY revealing that the Holy Spirit, Jesus the Son, and God the Father are THREE separate individuals (Persons) . . . the Godhead . . . a Trinity!
1 Corinthians 15:23-24 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. (KJV) . . . Christ Jesus will hand over the Kingdom to God the Father when all is ended, (the ending of the affairs under the mediatorial reign of Christ), showing Jesus is a separate individual (Person) from God the Father.
Philippians 2:10-11 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (KJV) . . . Jesus will be exalted for eternity in Heaven, bringing glory to God the Father, revealing that He is a separate individual (Person) from God the Father.
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (KJV) . . . Jesus the Son is in Heaven, sitting at the right Hand of the throne of God the Father, clearly showing He is a separate individual (Person) from God the Father.
Revelation 22:1-3 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. . . .  And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: (KJV) . . . God the Father and Jesus the Lamb, are two separate individuals (Persons) whom we will one day gratefully worship in Heaven.
Anyone who really desires to know the TRUTH, need only search the Scriptures, to rightly divide the Truth (2 Tim.2:15) and prove that a doctrine is false. There are MANY Scriptures clearly teach that Jesus is a separate individual (Person) from God the Father. Because of this, all other conclusions from Scripture MUST agree with this fact, that Jesus is a separate individual (Person) from the Father. Anyone who twists Scriptures to suit their desire is a heretic and they teach a damnable heresy (2 Pet.2:1), according to God's Holy Word, the Bible.
