The KJV teaches the Trinity

Yes, there is no word “trinity” found anywhere in the Bible. Instead the word, “Godhead” is used in the King James Version and a few other versions. It’s interesting that the word “Godhead” appears 3 times in the KJV! Significant, don’t you think?

Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Godhead is not found in most modern translations. Other words are substituted for Godhead. Examples.

  • “divine being” – New International Version
  • “Deity” – Revised Standard Version
  • “the deity” – New Revised Standard Version
  • “his nature” – Good News Translation
  • “divine being” – English Standard Standard Translation
  • “Divine Nature” – New King James Version
  • “Divine Nature” – New American Standard Bible

Of the 7 examples, the translators of 4 of them didn’t even want to capitalize the words referring to Godhead.

“Divine Nature” of the NKJV and the NASB is not the same meaning as Godhead! It’s a meaning change. The NKJV people went further than their mission statement. They were supposed to only use modern words to replace archaic ones in the KJV. They weren’t supposed to change the meaning.

Most of these translations also omit “the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost” in 1 John chapter 5.

1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Instead, Why? Because the translators did not believe that Jesus was God!

Notice the article “the” precedes Father, Word and Holy Ghost? This is to denote they are unique!


Used to refer to a person, place, or thing that is unique: “the Queen”; “the Mona Lisa”; “the Nile”.

Jesus was THE Christ, not “a christ”. He was The anointed one. Anybody else to claims to be Christ is a liar. There was only ONE CHRIST, and that was Jesus!

  1. The word godhead is not found in any of the original definition of the greek words in three verses that you mention. The word godhead was added to the original definition by the KJV translators so as to be used to defend the false teaching of the trinity.

    NT:2304: theios (thi’-os); from NT:2316; godlike (neuter as noun, divinity):
    KJV – divine, godhead.

    NT:2305: theiotes (thi-ot’-ace); from NT:2304; divinity (abstractly):
    KJV – godhead.

    NT:2320: theotes (theh-ot’-ace); from NT:2316; divinity (abstractly):
    KJV – godhead.

    Jesus is the son of ALMIGHTY GOD, the word says we must believe that, no where does the word tell us that we need to believe that Jesus is
    ALMIGHTY GOD, Even Jesus tells us several times that he is the son of ALMIGHTY GOD and that GOD the FATHER is greater than he.

    2 Thessalonians 2:11
    11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

    GOD the FATHER sent HIS son to save the world, HE did not send HIMSELF.

    • 1 John 4:14  ¶And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

      Is the Father, God?

      John 1:1  ¶In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
      John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
      John 1:18  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

      Is the Son, God?

      Matthew 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

      Is the Holy Spirit, God? If not, why did the Son of God tell us to be baptised in the Name of the Holy Ghost?

      Matthew 28:19 is the clearest verse in the Bible about the Trinity. Believers in Christ are supposed to be baptised in all three Names, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Even if the Catholic church named it so, it still is a biblical concept according to my Bible.
