Articles/Papers Written By Wayne L. Atchison

You may or may not agree with points made in my articles. Disagreement is expected, and even welcome.
What is more important is that you read and understand the basis and reasoning for the points made.

The first goal is to challenge you:
If you read the best arguments I can make, and understand them well enough to give a logical rebuttal, then you have grown in your understanding.

The second goal is to convince you: If you read the best arguments I can make, and understand them well enough to see that your current concepts may have some problems, then you have grown in your understanding.

An honest Bible study and a focused debate should be fun. Please enjoy reading the best arguments I can make ...


Articles On Foundational Topics: "What You Need To Know":

There are just a few concepts that everyone needs to understand first.
We may all enjoy engaging in fun debates about many Biblical topics, but these three must be debated first.
The First Most Importatnt Thing To Know:
Diving deep into the Greek Text of 2-Timothy 2:19-26 demonstrates the purpose for living. The Reason For Living
The Kingdom of YHWH - The Reason For Living: A Lecture Presentation Power Point Presentation
 
The Second Most Importatnt Thing To Know:
Diving deep into the Greek Text of Matthrew 5:17-20 demonstrates that these verses are mistranslated. The Messiah said NOT to think that He was going to annul the Law. In the Greek Text this is very emphatic! The Laws Are Not Done Away
Amazing historical documentation of the very first split of the original church at Jerusalem.
It was a "departing from the religion", to follow the religion of the Romans instead of the religion of the Jews.
First Split
 
The Third Most Importatnt Thing To Know:
Diving into the Greek Text of Acts 15:21 demonstrates why Galatians had to be written. It has nothing to do with the Torah-of-YHWH (translated: Teachings-of-Yahowah, Aramaic) being changed, it has everything to do with Yahowah changing men to be Clean, so that He can dwell in them.

Papers On "One God":

"One God": Means the Creator YHWH is a Singular Being, One Person having One Intellect, The only Elohim of Israel,
The Father, who resurrected 'the Jesus', the promised Messiah.
People like to think that God is a Trinity, or a Family of separate Personalities.

But the Hebrew Text of Deuteronomy 6:4 does NOT say that "God is one", it says that: "YHWH is '1'" !

Read it in the Hebrew Text:  "YHWH, our Elohim, YHWH is '1'".

When the Messiah Yahoshua (Aramaic, Greek 'Yeesous', English 'Jesus') quoted this Text, the Greek word for the cardinal number '1' (one) was used.
In the Greek Text Yahoshua said that the Hebrew word means the digit '1'.

Nowhere in the Greek Text are we told that we must believe in a Trinity, nor that we must believe that the Messiah preexisted as God.
These are man-made-up tenets, such confessions are not in the Greek Text. This fact is documented without ambiguity in the historical records of the Nicean Council in 325 AD. Not until that conference was it officially decreed that "everyone must confess that Jesus is God".
Today, people are just simply unaware that they are mindlessly parroting a tenet of faith, that was invented by men 300 years after the New Covenant began.

To be saved we are told that we must believe that the man Yahoshua is the resurrected son of God, and is both the promised Prophet (2nd Moses) and the promised Messiah (2nd Adam). Therefore, it is not proper to elevate this topic to the level of condemnation to hell, if you agree or disagree.
But at the same time, this topic will never just go away, so let us talk about it.


Consider carefully. What is the first and firmest tenet of the Jewish religion? The one-ness of God. One Being and one Personality.
How inconsistent it is to claim to worship the God of Israel, but reject the first and firmest tenet of the Hebrew Text.

People want to debate the Hebrew word 'Elohim', suggesting that the word 'Elohim' is a Trinity, or more than one Personality-manifestation.
Yes, you can intellectually imagine that 'God/Elohim' may be like 'this', or that 'God/Elohim' may be like 'that'.
Understand, 'Elohim' is a 'Title'. Anyone of status was called an 'Elohim' in the Hebrew Text. Angels, men, "the gods", these were all called 'Elohims'. The fact is that 'God/Elohim' could refer to either The Creator YHWH, or to Baal, or to Ashtoreth (Isis), or to a human magistrate (Judge), or to a heavenly angel. The word is a title, designating the person's very high social class and elevated status.
Debating the Hebrew word 'Elohim' is pointless.

The debate is NOT about the English word 'God', nor is it about the Hebrew word 'Elohim', it is about the Hebrew word 'YHWH':

The Text does not say that "God is one", it says that "YHWH Is '1'"

Imagine whatever you want about the word 'God/Elohim'. But it is impossible to imagine that the personal name of the Creator-Being, 'YHWH', which is used over 6,820 times in the Hebrew Text with the SINGULAR PRONOUN (He, I, His, etc.), is referring to anything but a single Being, having one intellect and one personality.

This fact makes Acts 3:13 contradict the typical Trinitarian and "Jesus is YHWH" concepts. This chapter says that it was the entity "YHWH" that resurrected "The Jesus", and that it is "The Jesus" that is the surviving entity (not "The Christ") of the resurrection.

There is another point which needs to be understood:
There is no doubt that the King James version, and most of the other translations of the Greek Text, use language which leads the reader into thinking that Jesus preexisted as God. Further, there is no doubt that those creating these English translations are indeed highly skilled scholars, and they know the Greek language. This means that the debate is in essence a challenge to their translation. At some point the debate must focus on the Greek Text itself, and investigate how else the Text can be translated.

My first clue of this was that in the Middle Ages, before the printing press, the Jewish scholars would read the Greek Text for the purpose of debating the Catholic scholars. In doing so they would declare to the Catholic scholars that no where in the Greek Text does it say that Jesus preexisted, or was/is 'Divine'. For the Jewish scholars to say this, they had to be reading the Greek Text and translating it differently.

Saying the above another way: if as a cosmic-fact Jesus is not a preexistent personality of the Godhead, but rather was a man which began existence at birth, then it should be possible for an honest person to translate the exact same Greek Text in a manner which is mono-theistic, as the Jewish scholars asserted. It should be possible to read the Greek Text and stay consistent with the first and firmest tenet of the Hebrew Text.

This is the approach I have taken. Each of the proof-texts supporting the preexistence of Jesus must be examined honestly, to determine if they could indeed be translated differently. What I have discovered, and the articles/papers presented will document, is that indeed each of these proof-texts are rendered into English in a biased manner. Each Text can grammatically and honestly be rendered into English such that a preexistent Jesus is not implied. As it turns out, most of the proof-texts actually say the opposite.


I suggest that it is very important to ponder Christology in two parts:
First you ask yourself - what IF the Messiah and YHWH are the same - then how would the author had written the Greek Text, with the proper grammar, to be consistent with that understanding?

Then you again ask yourself - what IF the Messiah and YHWH are not the same - then how would the author had written the Greek Text, with the proper grammar, to be consistent with that understanding?

Then you look at the Text as it was written, and ask yourself - is the Greek Text, with the grammar used, written more consistent with 'this' or with 'that' understanding?

I have found that in every case the Greek Text, with its grammar, is more consistent with the understanding that it is YHWH which is One ('1'), and it is His Messiah, 'the Jesus', that was born of the DNA of Abraham, that un-did the curse of Adam, and is our hero, and is our coming King for the millennium. 1-Corinthians 15 tells us that after the millennium 'the Jesus' will hand over the reigns to 'the Father', also giving evidence that 'the Messiah, the Jesus' is not the same being as is 'the YHWH'.

The following papers present the details which document my best arguments in support of worshipping only The Creator YHWH, the only Elohim of Israel, through the Mediator who is the resurrected Yahoshua (Jesus), the Messiah.
 
What The Word For "God" Meant To People In Ancient Times
Historical documents demonstrate how the word "Elohim" was used in ancient times. Documents found in other languages, such as Egyptian and Sumerian, as well as the Hebrew Text itself, all demonstrate that anyone could be voted or elevated to be an "Elohim".
Understanding that this debate is NOT about the Hebrew word "Elohim" is foundational.

It is very important that you read this paper first!
Ancient Usage Of
The Word "Elohim"
 

The Shema as defined by the Hebrew Text, Deut. 6:4-5:
"Hear O'Isreal, Yahowah our Elohim, Yahowah IS 1
And you shall love Yahowah your Elohim,
With all of your Heart,
And with all of your Soul,
And with all of your Might."

[ The New Covenant Text allows us to add ]
In Yahoshua's Name, So Let It Be So !

The research shows why 'YHWH' was (is) pronouned as three syllables, 'Yaho-wah'.
The research shows why 'Elohim' is NOT just another name for 'God', and how this word was actually used in ancient times.
The research shows why the Hebrew word is the digit '1' (and there really is no ambiguity on this).
The research shows why the Messiah is also called 'Yaho-shua'.
Step by Step Grammatical Analysis of John 1:1-14
The most often quoted verse to support the Trinity, actually says the opposite.
You need to read the historical record of how these versus were translated before 325 AD.
You need to read the official Footnotes of the Trinitarian translators.
The facts are that the Greek Grammar, the translator's footnotes, and the historical records demonstrate that these verses are being purposefully mistranslated.

Seems no one wants to tell you that John 1 is directly written from Proverbs chapter 8. Just read chapter 8, and you will understand what John is talking about. John 1 has nothing to do with introducing new scripture about a preexistent Jesus, but is talking about "Wisdom".
"Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. She crieth at the gates, at the . . . (22) The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men. Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways." (Proverbs 8:1, 22-32).
John 1:1-14
 
Step by Step Grammatical Analysis of Colossians 1:14-16:
Diving into the Greek Text demonstrates that these verses are translated to lead the reading into thinking what is not there.
It does not say that the Messiah created everything, it says that the Messiah passively received every power and authority from the Father.
Colossians 1:15-16
 
Step by Step Grammatical Analysis of "The Christian Confession" of 1-John 4:2
Diving into the Greek Text demonstrates that these verses are translated in such a way as to hide the seriousness of the confession.
This Article Is Vital !
The Biblical Confession is far more serious than what is expressed in the Catholic/Protestant Bibles !
Most people have been taught things which directly contradict the original confession.
1-John 4:2
 
Step by Step Grammatical Analysis of John 17:5
Diving into the Greek Text demonstrates that these verses are just simply mistranslated.
It does not say that the Messiah had glory before the world (the creation) began, it says that the Messiah was asking to retain the same superior status He now had with the Father.
John 17:5
 
King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Discussion about Revelation 19:11-16 and 1-Timothy 6:13-16.
Do these versus combine to tell us that 'the Messiah' and 'the YHWH' have the same title, and therefore are the same person?

The Solar System Is A Witnesses To The Creator:
The five major planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) each have their own unique orbit around the sun. Their orbits do not even follow the same plane, and each travels at a different speed. Even so, the time it takes each planet to circle once around the sun is a value that modern science has measured with incredible accuracy. Now, if we add their orbits together, what do we get?

A planet's sidereal cycle is the time it takes the planet to circle once around the sun, where the start and finish point is the same. If you simply add the time it takes each planet to make (7 times 7) 49 laps around the sun, you arrive at 2,160 years, which is one astronomical age.

This mathematical fact is far beyond the possibility of being a result of "random chance".
Read the explanation.
Proof There Is A Creator
 
Corporate versus Independent Thinking:
We observe that the Body of Christ is extremely fragmented into thousands of groups.
There are "Churches of God", "Messianic Groups", "Congregations of YHWH", and many more.
Is there anyone thinking about Why?
Is there anyone thinking about Why Splits Happen So Often?
Is there anyone thinking about Why Their Own Group Has Such Problems?
Is there anyone thinking about trying to form Group Cooperations?
Is there anyone thinking about forming an End Time Community?

If "YES", then you absolutely need to read this paper.

The Observed Calendar of the Second Temple, Dates For 2014:
The historical documentation demonstrates that after circa 516 B.C. their was one official lunar calendar system used throughout the region of Asia Minor. This would be from India to Ethiopia. This same lunar calendar was taught by the academies, and used by their graduating scribes to record historical events and legal contracts. This simple lunar calendar was the only official calendar used during the Second Temple Era started by Ezra. Historical documents exist which demonstrate that this same lunar calendar was kept scrupulously, all of the way up to circa 163 A.D. Only at this late date do we start to find documents which demonstrate a "rift" beginning between the academies of the east (Persia / Parthia) and the Rabbinical Rabbis of the west.

Using the same rules of this simple lunar calendar, these are the important (calculated, not observed yet) dates for 2014.
Dates For 2014
 
Lunar Calendar of the Second Temple Era:
Diving deep into the Historical Records, there are scores of eye witness quotes and astronomical data points, which tell us today exactly how the priests of the Second Temple determined their official calendar, which they used to declare the Holy Days and Temple duties of YHWH.

This link will take you to a huge amount of material. To really know about the ancient lunar calendar used by Israel, you will want to read this material.

Early Christian Church's Very First Split:
Amazing historical documentation of the very first split of the original church at Jerusalem.
It was a "departing from the religion", to follow the religion of the Romans instead of the religion of the Jews.

Analysis of the Sabbath - Sunday Controversy:
The historical documentation demonstrates that throughout history
the Saturday-Sabbath has always been the primary day to worship YHWH (Yahowah in Aramaic),
while Sunday has always been the primary day to worship the other Gods (the other Elohims).
This paper contains many quotes, directly from the Catholic and Protestant denominations, saying this very same thing.
Read this paper, and you will be absolutely astonished at what is known to be true by those that keep Sunday.
The Seventh Day Sabbath
 
Step by Step Grammatical Analysis of Colossians 2:16-17:
Most Sunday Churches teach that: "The Sabbath, New Moons, and Holy Days: are only a shadow, but the reality is Christ", therefore you do not have to keep them. They then tell you that you should keep Sunday instead. But the Greek Grammar demonstrates that these verses are mistranslated. We keep Yahowah's Sabbaths, New Moons, and Holy Days because that is what the Messiah (Yahoshua) is doing right now ! Colossians 2:16
