The Trinity


The Trinity

Matthew 28:19 is a some times misunderstood biblical passage with regard to the Trinity doctrine. “Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in (‘into,’ Greek eis) the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the “Holy Spirit.”

Remember the important principle that the Bible interprets the Bible. What this particular passage shows us is the proper baptismal formula, not a description of the nature of Yahweh

Notice Acts 2:38: “Then Kepha {Peter}said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yahushua the Messiah for the forgiveness of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit After real repentance and being baptized, the example from Scripture is that a minister lays his hands on the repentant person and he or she receives the Holy Spirit directly from Yahweh (Acts 8:14-17).

Important as it is, baptism alone is not sufficient. It must be followed by the biblically mandated laying on of hands for the receiving of the Holy Spirit—the seed of eternal life (Acts 19:1-6). We cannot partake of Yahweh’s nature (2Peter 1:4) without first being begotten of the Father by the Holy Spirit, which imparts that divine nature .

Messiah’s instruction in Matthew 28:19 presumes that, before being baptized, believers will learn of Yahweh the Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit. At baptism, they enter into a personal family relationship with YHWH the Father and the Son through the Holy Spirit, thereby receiving the name of Yahweh (compare Ephesians 3:14-15). This is the message of Matthew 28:19.

Trinity advocates use the following:

"I and the Father are one" (John 10:30);

". . .he that hath seen me hath seen the Father" (John 17:22);

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with YHWH, and the Word was YHWH. " (John 1"1);

". . . that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me and I in Him"

". . .he that hath seen me hath seen the Father. . ." (John 14:9)

". . .Holy Father keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are."John 17:11

" Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Yahushua the Messiah. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." Colossians 3:8,9.

As we shall find the Bible has many more verses denying the Trinity than it has confirming it:

"Why callest me good? There is none good but one, that is Yahweh" (Matthew 19:17)

". . .for my Father is greater than I. . ." (John 14:28)

"My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me." (John 7:16)

"O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt." (Matthew 26:39)

"And about the ninth hour Yahushua cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My Elohim, my Elohim, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46)

"But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father." (Mark 13:32)

"Who has gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of Yahweh" (Peter 3:22)

As we have seen there are many scriptures opposing the Trinity concept.

And here is the dilemma. Christians know that in order for Yahshua to be the savior of mankind, he must also be Yahweh. The bible says so. If he is not Yahweh, then he cannot be the savior. His death would be meaningless. So Christians have invented the Trinity to explain Messiah's divinity. He is man. He is Yahweh. He is both. He must be in order to be the savior. Unfortunately, he is ambivalent at best. Sometimes he claims to be one with God. Sometimes he admits Yahweh knows things which he doesn't know and does things which he cannot do. Christians go to nearly any length to prove the Trinity including the declaration that its a "mystery" And so they declare we don't have the mind to understand it". Isn't the bible the perfect, inerrant word of Yahweh? Then I have to ask what are they going to do with this statement that Yahshua made ~ "I will pray to the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter...even the Spirit of Truth…He will guide you into all truth." (Jn 14:16-17, 16:13).

The Christians have created a Trinity doctrine and it's contradictions which must accompany the doctrine sound a resounding "No" To it's truth! So how did the Trinity doctrine/dogma come into existence?

The origins of the Trinity doctrine are appalling. Like most historic issues pertaining to Christianity, there was much deceit and bloodshed. Many lives were lost before 'Trinitarianism' was finally adopted.

The following work brought forward by Cheney Ellis

The following Scriptures will assistance in a Bible study to prove an error in the false teachings of trinity. In no way will we under estimate or belittle THE HOLY GHOST ( HOLY SPIRIT) We will take a look at what The Bible Verses reveal.

Matt. 28:19; 11:25-27
Acts 2:28; 8: 14-17; 18:10-38; 19:1-6
Ephesians 3: 14-17
Timothy 1: 7
John 8: 58; 17:5; 17:4-28; 20:17
Corinthians 10:4
Hebrews 1:8-19
Romans 8:14-29; 15:6
Philippians 25:11
Isaiah 11:2
Luke 1:

As many Christians know, the word "trinity" does not appear in the Bible. It doesn't because it is a doctrine which evolved in early Christianity. It was a manipulated, bloody and deadly process before it finally arrived as an 'accepted' doctrine of the church.

Constantine - Brings In The Trinity

Flavius Valerius Constantius (c. 285-337 AD), Constantine the Great, was the son of Emperor Constantius I. When his father died in 306 AD, Constantine became emperor of Britain, Gaul (now France), and Spain. Gradually he gained control of the entire Roman empire.

Theological differences regarding Jesus Christ began to manifest in Constantine's empire when two major opponents surfaced and debated whether Christ was a created being (Arius doctrine) or not created but rather coequal and coeternal to God his father (Athanasius doctrine).

The theological warfare between the Arius and Athanasius doctrinal camps became intense. Constantine realized that his empire was being threatened by the doctrinal rift. Constantine began to pressure the church to come to terms with its differences before the results became disastrous to his empire. Finally the emperor called a council at Nicea in 325 AD to resolve the dispute.

Only a fraction of existing bishops, 318, attended. This equated to about 18% of all the bishops in the empire. Of the 318, approximately 10 were from the Western part of Constantine's empire, making the voting lopsided at best. The emperor manipulated, coerced and threatened the council to be sure it voted for what he believed rather than an actual consensus of the bishops.

The present day Christian church touts Constantine as the first Christian emperor, however, his 'Christianity' was politically motivated. Whether he personally accepted Christian doctrine is highly doubtful. He had one of his sons murdered in addition to a nephew, his brother in law and possibly one of his wives. He continued to retain his title of high priest in a pagan religion until his death. He was not baptized until he was on his deathbed.

The First Two Thirds Of The Trinity - And The Nicaean Creed

The majority of bishops voted under pressure from Constantine for the Athanasius doctrine. A creed was adopted which favored Athanasius's theology. Arius was condemned and exiled. Several of the Bishops left before the voting to avoid the controversy. Jesus Christ was approved to be "one substance" with God the Father. It is interesting that even now, the Eastern and Western Orthodox churches disagree with each other regarding this doctrine, the Western churches having had no influence in the 'voting'.

Two of the bishops who voted pro-Arius were also exiled and Arius's writings were destroyed. Constantine decreed that anyone caught with Arius documents would be subject to the death penalty.

The Nicaean Creed read as follows:

I believe in one Elohim: the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible;

And in one Master Yahshua Messiah, the only begotten Son of Yahweh: begotten of his Father before all worlds, Yahweh our Elohim, Light of Light, very Yahweh of very Elohim, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, through whom all things were made. . .

Even with the adoption of the Nicaean Creed, problems continued and in a few years, the Arian faction began to regain control. They became so powerful that Constantine restored them and denounced the Athanasius group.

Arius's exile was ended along with the bishops who sided with him. It was now Athanasius who would be banished.

When Constantine died (after being baptized by an Arian Bishop), his son reinstated the Arian philosophy and bishops and condemned the Athanasius group.

In the following years the political foes continue to struggle and finally the Arians misused their power and were overthrown. The religious/political controversy caused widespread bloodshed and killing. In 381 AD, Emperor Theodosius (a Trinitarian) convened a council in Constantinople. Only Trinitarian bishops were invited to attend. 150 bishops attended and voted to alter the Nicene creed to include the Holy Spirit as a part of the Godhead. The Trinity doctrine was now official for both the church and the state.

Dissident bishops were expelled from the church, and excommunicated.

The Athanasius Creed Completes The Trinitarian Godhead

The Athanasius (Trinitarian) Creed was finally established in (probably) the 5th century. It was not written by Athanasius but adopted his name. It stated in part as follows:

"We worship one God in Trinity . . . The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God; and yet they are not three gods, but one God."

By the 9th century the creed was established in Spain, France and Germany. It had taken centuries from the time of Christ for the trinity doctrine to catch on. Government and church politics were the reasons the trinity came into existence and became church orthodoxy.

As we have seen, the Trinitarian doctrine came from deceit, politics, a pagan emperor and warring factions who brought about death and bloodshed.

The Christian Trinity

Why the original clamor to elevate Jesus and the holy spirit to positions equal to the Christian/Judaeo God? Simply, the pagan world was quite used to having "three gods" or "trinities" as their deities. The trinity satisfied the majority of Christians who had come from pagan backgrounds. Christianity didn't get rid of the pagan trinities, it adopted them as it did so many other pagan traditions.

Did You Know There Are Other Trinities.

Hinduism embraced the triune godhead of Brahma, the god of creation ; Vishnu the god of maintenance and Siva the god of destruction. One of Egypt's many trinities was Horus, Isis and Osiris. "Interesting Isn't it that the vast majority of Christians today believe in a trinity!"

In order to believe in a TRINITY there would have to be a third member sitting on the left hand side of the Father, We know Yahshua, sets at the right hand of the Father.
