Trinitarians often claim Matthew 28:19 supports their belief in a Trinity and the Holy Spirit as a third being. But this verse in no way affirms the Trinity doctrine which states that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three co-equal, co-eternal beings that make up one God.
Nobody denies there is the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
But does this verse actually say the HOLY SPIRIT is a THIRD CO-EQUAL BEING? No!
This verse refers to three entities, but says nothing about their personality.
It does not say they are three beings,
it does not say they are three in one or one in three,
it does not say these three are the Godhead,
it does not say these three are a Trinity,
it does not say these three are co-equal or co-eternal beings,
it does not say that these three are all God.
And yet, Trinitarians wrongly draw the conclusion that this supports their belief in the Trinity or that the Holy Spirit is another being which is clearly not so.
It is just a very bad assumption and a lie we are often told.
