Therefore, Jesus Christ is seen as a human figure in Deism.

    A. Infallibility of scriptures
    Explanation
    Deism rejects the concept of infallibility of scriptures because it emphasizes the belief in a higher power who created the universe but does not intervene in its affairs. Deists believe that reason and logic should be used to understand the world, rather than relying on religious texts that claim to be infallible. They emphasize the use of human reason and observation to understand the natural world and do not believe in the divine inspiration or absolute truth of religious scriptures.

Deism is a philosophical belief that acknowledges the existence of a supreme being or creator, but rejects organized religion and supernatural intervention in human affairs.

    C. Deist believe that God is Uni-personal
    Explanation
    Deists believe that God is Uni-personal. This means that they believe in a single, impersonal God who created the universe but does not intervene in its affairs. Deists reject the idea of a personal God who has a direct relationship with humanity or performs miracles. Instead, they emphasize the use of reason and logic in understanding the natural world and the existence of God. Deists view God as a distant and detached entity, separate from human affairs.

    Deism and Unitarianism both believe that:

    • A.

      Jesus is divine

    • B.

      The trinity is false

    • C.

      Apostle Paul's teaching is more important than that of Jesus

    • D.

      Jesus died as an atonement for sin

    Correct Answer
    B. The trinity is false
    Explanation
    Deism and Unitarianism both reject the concept of the trinity, which states that God is three persons in one: the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. They believe that God is one singular entity and that Jesus is not divine in the traditional sense. Instead, they view Jesus as a human prophet or teacher. Therefore, the statement "The trinity is false" aligns with the beliefs of both Deism and Unitarianism.

    • A.

      Christianity

    • B.
