Do the Oneness Pentecostal Christians really believe in a dual godhead as they deny that the Father died on the cross?

A:

No. See the Related Links for "Watchman Fellowship: Oneness Pentecostalism" to the bottom for the answer.

Another answer:

This question requires more than just a "No" and a web link.

The answer is that God cannot die. He always has been and always will be. Being eternal is one of his defining attributes. Jesus was the "only Begotten Son" of God. In other words, He was born into the world. The Bible never refers to an "eternal Son" but a begotten, born son.

Therefore when Jesus died, God kept living. God dwelt in Christ. (Col. 2:9-10 and many other verses.) 1 Tim. 3:16 tells us that God was manifested in Christ.

Jesus was the Son of God according to the flesh and God Himself. Jesus is the visible manifestation of God. All Christian say that God dwells in them. People say, I have Jesus in my heart, or God in my heart, or I have God's Spirit dwelling within me. This is true, God is omnipresent, he is everywhere at once, but when it comes to God being in Christ and being in heaven at the same time, people balk and try and make two separate persons or three separate persons out of God. If this is the case then every person on the planet that claims salvation has a person of God in them.

God is everywhere, and how He relates to man is His manifestation. I relate to my sons and daughter as a father, I relate to my wife as a husband, and to my parents as a son, but I am one person not three. If I can do it, then it has to be a piece of cake to God.
