three separate gods make up one godhead

God’s power is limited by human attributes

God has a beginning - is an offspring of another god

Through faith, Christians receive Christ’s work and perfection

Jesus paid our debt to sin so that we don’t have debt

our life, spirit, and body begin at conception

Must prove own worthiness and earn own perfection

Jesus refinanced our debt to sin but we still have our entire debt to pay him

spirit life begins in the pre-existence where we mature as spirits before coming to earth

Man is born sinful - man’s natural inclination is to sin

Man is saved by faith in Christ alone

Adam fell so that man could have the joys of physical bodies, procreation, and opportunity to gain eternal life

Man is born without sin - natural inclination to do good

Man is saved by faith and works
