No Change & No Birth

No Change & No Birth

Trinitarianism claims that Jesus is God. However, there are a couple of problems with this.

1. God can't change

Unless "God the Son" was "the son" in the flesh for all eternity, there’s a contradiction because God doesn’t change (Mal 3:6). For him to "add humanity" to something he had for all eternity, so that he might step into our world and "take on human limitations," means he's changed.

2. God can't be born

Of course, this contradicts basic ideas of birth, conception, and begetting.  "Begotten" means "only born,"[1] and is specific to Jesus as God's son because he was the only human conceived directly by God's Holy Spirit.

The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.[2]

Holy Spirit will come upon you, and power of the Most high will overshadow you. And for that reason the one who is born will be called holy, God's Son.[3]

As Biblical Unitarians, we say he's the "uniquely born son of God."


So, either Jesus eternally existed in the flesh, which contradicts the birth narrative and him actually coming in the flesh (which is antichrist), or God can change, which contradicts the eternal, unchanging nature of God and ruins scripture.
