formation by "the Church", of the dogma of the Trinity was not
completed until the Council of Nicea, in Turkey in AD 325, devised the Nicean
Creed, which endeavoured to marry together both the Pagan and Christian concepts
of God and gods. The Nicean Creed
replaced the original Apostles Creed which was a simple and truthful document.
ONE GOD...NOT THREE:
people from different nations have worshipped a multiplicity of gods. Many of those gods consisted of a trinity, whereas the Father
told Moses to instruct the Children of Israel. "HEAR O ISRAEL; THE LORD (Jehovah) OUR GOD (Elohim) IS
(Deut 6:4). Jesus selected this instruction as "the
first of all the commandments."
word "trinity" is nowhere to be found in the Bible and cannot be
found in any Christian literature written before
the end of the 2nd. century.
Bible does not present the Father as three but ONE and positively presents Jesus
as the SON OF GOD at least 91
times, but "god the Son", NOT ONCE.
At His baptism, God referred to Jesus as His beloved Son, which of course
He could not have been if He had been God, very God.
Paul writing to Timothy speaks plainly of "One God and one mediator
between God and men...THE MAN CHRIST JESUS.
(1 Tim 2:5). Obviously Jesus could not be a
mediator IF indeed He was the God with whom He was supposed to mediate.
Bible presents the
SPIRIT as the power of the Father, by which He works and acts in human
affairs....CERTAINLY NOT A PERSON. The "promise" of the Holy Spirit to
the disciples, which Luke spoke of, he described as being "endued with
power from on high". (Luke 24:49).
angel Gabriel speaking to Mary, speaks of the Holy Spirit coming upon her, which
he clearly says is the "power of the highest."
DOGMA NOT DOCTRINE:
dogma of the Trinity is an invention of mankind and the ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA
once wrote on the subject..."The propositions constituent of the Trinity were not drawn
directly from the New Testament and could not be expressed in New Testament
terms....they WERE PRODUCTS OF REASON, SPECULATING on a revelation to
faith...they were only formed THROUGH CENTURIES OF EFFORT, only elaborated
the aid of conceptions formulated in the terms of GREEK AND ROMAN
THE "CHURCH" DENIES JESUS
the Church at Rome truly "invented" the Trinity, then it is fitting to
read what their Catechisms say on the subject and the Catholic Catechism for
Australian Schools of 1st Sept. 1963, book 2, on page 63 has this to say. 'GOD HAD NOT TOLD HIS PEOPLE THE
MYSTERY OF THE BLESSED TRINITY, NOR HAD HE SAID CLEARLY THAT THE MESSIAH WOULD
BE GOD HIMSELF." Thus we read with startling clarity the amazing
revelation that the Roman Catholic Church agrees with the Encyclopedia Britannica...the whole dogma of the Trinity is
IN THE BIBLE... it was composed by human thinking and reasoning, and as such
is NOT BIBLICAL and is
NOT A DOCTRINE NECESSARY FOR SALVATION as the Church so
JESUS COULD HAVE SINNED...GOD
the same Catechism, on page 65 we read..."BECAUSE HE ( Jesus) IS ALL HOLY, HE COULD NOT POSSIBLY
SIN.......WHEN THE SON BECAME MAN HE
DID NOT CEASE TO BE GOD". To claim that Jesus COULD NOT POSSIBLY SIN, removes him from the realms
of human weakness and frailty and presents Him as GOD, as the Creeds seek to do. However, in Rev
3:21, we are told conclusively...."To
him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also
overcame and am set down with my Father in His throne."
is obvious that, as Jesus used the word OVERCAME,
He was beset by the same trials and temptations which every man and woman
experience and He could have sinned had He not OVERCOME sin...that is
..He resisted all sin and
add to this, we turn to Luke 22:28, where we read of Jesus saying to the
Disciples..."YE ARE THEY WHICH HAVE
CONTINUED WITH ME IN MY TEMPTATIONS".
could have sinned, BUT DID NOT. James,
the brother of our Lord states categorically ..."GOD
CANNOT BE TEMPTED" (James 1:13)
proves JESUS WAS NOT AND IS NOT
can be sure therefore, that the
dogma of the Trinity is false, as are the claims of the latter Creeds.
