2 Corinthians 12:19b
We have been speaking in the sight of God as those in Christ; and everything we do, dear friends, is for your strengthening. (NIV)
1. The Greek text contains a difficult construction, and reads, “God in Christ,” which has caused some to believe it is a reference to the Trinity. Not at all. If anything, it tends to refute the Trinity (see the notes on 2 Cor. 5:19).
2. This verse is translated in several different ways by Trinitarian translators. It is noteworthy that some Trinitarians do not believe this verse is referring to the Trinity, and how they translate it. A good example is the NIV, quoted above, which is especially meaningful because the NIV translation favors the Trinitarian position in most instances.
