I am going to show you THREE important facts, regarding the Trinity.
Lets SEEK out the TRUTH, and look at the facts.
Trinitarins tell me the CATHOLIC CHURCH was not established at this stage, and yet as we clearly see it was written in the Creeds of Christendom that the holy CATHOLIC and apostolic CHURCH condemned people who were in conflict and were opposing the NEW Trinity doctrine.
I recently found the articles below.
The New Bible Dictionary, 2nd edition by J.D. Douglas, page 1221, admits that the doctrine of the trinity does not come from the Scriptures, but from philosophy influenced by paganism.
The Encyclopedia Britannica, Micropedia Volume 11, page 928, gives us the following facts about the trinity.
Neither the word Trinity nor the explicit doctrine appears in the New Testament, nor did Jesus and his followers intend to contradict the Shema in the Hebrew Scriptures: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord” (Deuteronomy 6:4).
The Religions of Ancient Greece and Babylonia, by A. H. Sayce. pages 229-230, clearly tells us that the Greek philosophical ideas were developed in Alexandria, Egypt from the pagan mystery religions.
List of Catholic Doctrines.
1. TRINITY --- “The mystery (see Rev. 17:5) of the Trinity is the central doctrine of the catholic church. https://sites.google.com/site/christourtruth/list-of-catholic-doctrines
Are Trinitarians believing and following a group of monks at the First Council of Nicaea. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Council_of_Nicaea Instead of: THE ONE TRUE GOD, and His literal SON.
IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN.’” MATTHEW 15:9.
The Cathecism of the Catholic Church admits the Church (not the Bible) had to come up with terms of "philosophical" (pagan/Greek) origin to explain it::
251 In order to articulate the dogma of the Trinity, the Church had to develop its own terminology with the help of certain notions of philosophical origin: "substance," "person," or "hypostasis," "relation" and so on (Catechism of the Catholic Church. Imprimatur Potest +Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger. Doubleday, NY 1995, p. 74).
Here is what it is recorded that a one-time Catholic bishop named Marcellus of Ancyra wrote, around the middle of the fourth century, where certain aspects of trinitarianism came from--paganism:
Now with the heresy of the Ariomaniacs, which has corrupted the Church of God...These then teach three hypostases, just as Valentinus the heresiarch first invented in the book entitled by him 'On the Three Natures'. For he was the first to invent three hypostases and three persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he is discovered to have filched this from Hermes and Plato (Source: Logan A. Marcellus of Ancyra (Pseudo-Anthimus), 'On the Holy Church': Text, Translation and Commentary. Verses 8-9. Journal of Theological Studies, NS, Volume 51, Pt. 1, April 2000, p.95 ).
Oddly enough, Jesus said: A tree is known by its fruit.
I find it surprising Trinitarins do not believe this is the tomb of Jesus as well, as they believe and follow the same CATHOLIC Trinity doctrine.
Please do not send me the Trinitarian claim of John 8:24.
I have already dealt with that FALSE claim here: IS JESUS GOD? Page 1
The MASSIVE deception in most of the churches today becomes very clear and easy to understand why Jesus said: For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14.
Friends, thank you for reading my research. I have done my best to present the truth, even though I believe this is only a fraction of the truth. I understand you may not agree, and when that's the case, I hope I have done some good, by encouraging you to do your own research, and remember Jesus words, when He said: seek and you will find. Matthew 7:7.
