All articles and research about GOD, on my web sites and this blog are about the ONE TRUE Father GOD, who is the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

As are all my articles and research about Jesus, are under His covenant name of the begotten Son’s personal name of Yeshua.

It is not my purpose to force you to agree or believe with what's on my websites, but rather to share my research.
As the record goes. I'm Just a soul who's intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood. I am Simon Brown. Amen.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5.
NOT GOD OR A TRINITY, but as St john has said: but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God? 1 John 5:5.
And as Jesus has said: ETERNAL LIFE is believing His Father GOD is the only ONE TRUE GOD alone. John 17:3. Which is the FIRST commandment one MUST believe. Mark 12:29.

And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said: “O LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim, you are THE God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15.


Dear friends, just to remind you, as I am a human being, I am capable of making mistakes. If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know. Thank you.

DID THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CREATE THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY? Research By Simon Brown.

DID THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CREATE THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY?

We do not need to be a scientist to understand a simple fact, and that simple fact is very easy to see, read and understand that it is well documented in history how the Trinity faith was established.

If one is seeking for the truth, then we will not always find the truth if we read BIASED books and articles written by prejudices people, who often warp and twist  the truth to make it fit with what they believe.

This is why I often use a NONE BIASED web site like the Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Notice it is also FREE and a click away, and no one is making money out of you by selling their BIASED books which are often written by prejudices people.

As the Trinity doctrine teach there are THREE in the Trinity,
I am going to show you THREE important facts, regarding the Trinity.

Note, history proves the form of a Trinity is not a Catholic invention, but that the Catholics adopted the Trinitarian concept “tritheism’ from Egypt and other pagans.

1. Was there a doctrine of the Trinity in the time of Jesus and His disciples?

2. When was the doctrine of the Trinity established?

3. DID THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CREATE THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY?

Lets SEEK out the TRUTH, and look at the facts.
By a simple click here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity (Trinity) we come to the info below. 

1.  Was there a doctrine of the Trinity in the time of Jesus and His disciples?

Answer.
The simplest outline of the doctrine was formulated in the 4th century, largely in terms of rejection of what was considered not to be consonant with general Christian belief. Further elaboration continued in the succeeding centuries.[10]

Scripture contains neither the word Trinity,[11] nor an expressly formulated doctrine of the Trinity. Rather, according to the Christian theology, it "bears witness to" the activity of a God who can only be understood in Trinitarian terms.[12] The doctrine did not take its definitive shape until late in the fourth century.[13] During the intervening period, various tentative solutions, some more and some less satisfactory, were proposed.
10.  "Trinity, doctrine of" in The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church (Oxford University Press 2005 ISBN 978-0-19-280290-3)
11.  Matt Slick, "The word Trinity is not found in the Bible"
12.  McGrath Alister E. Christian Theology: An Introduction Blackwell, Oxford (2001) p.321
13.  McGrath, Alister E. Christian Theology: An Introduction Blackwell, Oxford (2001) p.324

The above info answers both, the first 2 questions.
There was NO OFFICIAL Trinity doctrine in the time of Jesus and His disciples, because as we have clearly read.  The Trinity doctrine did not take its definitive shape until 300 years later in the 4th century, 

3. DID THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CREATE THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY?

Everywhere I research on the doctrine of the trinity, always seems to lead back to Catholicism.

Did you know Great defenders of Trinitarian faith were popes?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nicaea to East-West Schism (325–1054)
The Edict of Milan in 313 granted freedom to all religions in the Roman Empire,[50] beginning the Peace of the Church. In 325, the First Council of Nicaea condemned Arianism, declaring trinitarianism dogmatic, and in its sixth canon recognized the special role of the sees of Rome, Alexandria, and Antioch.[51] Great defenders of Trinitarian faith included the popes, especially Pope Liberius, who was exiled to Berea by Constantius II for his Trinitarian faith,[52] Damasus I, and several other bishops.[53]

In 380, the Edict of Thessalonica declared Nicene Christianity to be the state religion of the empire, with the name "Catholic Christians" reserved for those who accepted that faith.[54][55] While the civil power in the Eastern Roman Empire controlled the church, and the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, the capital, wielded much power,[56] in the Western Roman Empire, the Bishops of Rome were able to consolidate the influence and power they already possessed.[56] After the Fall of the Western Roman Empire, barbarian tribes were converted to Arian Christianity or Catholicism;[57] Clovis I, king of the Franks, was the first important barbarian ruler to convert to Catholicism rather than Arianism, allying himself with the papacy. Other tribes, such as the Visigoths, later abandoned Arianism in favour of Catholicism.[57] FULL ARTICLE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope#Early_Christianity_.28c._30.E2.80.93325.29

It is also very interesting to read and see a Great defender of the Trinitarian faith was Saint Athanasius of Alexandria.
And as we see below He was a POPE.

 Great defender of the Trinitarian faith was Saint Athanasius of Alexandria.

367 Athanasius’s Festal Letter lists COMPLETE NEW TESTAMENT CANON (27 books) FOR THE FIRST TIME.

Historian Cornelius Clifford said in his account: "Athanasius was THE GREATEST CHAMPION OF CATHOLIC BELIEF ON the subject of the Incarnation that the Church has ever known and in his lifetime earned the characteristic title of "Father of Orthodoxy", by which he has been distinguished ever since." [1]
Clifford, Cornelius. "St. Athanasius." The Catholic Encyclopedia. Vol. 2. New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1907. 4 Aug. 2014

Athanasius is counted as one of the four great Eastern Doctors of the Church in THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. 3] In the Eastern Orthodox Church, he is labeled as the "Father of Orthodoxy". Some Protestants label him as "Father of the Canon".

Chapman, John. "Doctors of the Church." The Catholic Encyclopedia Vol. 5. New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1909. 6 December 2015

Here it is very interesting to read what history’s greatest scientists, Greek and Hebrew Bible scholar, Sir Isaac Newton, had to say about Saint Athanasius of Alexandria.
Isaac Newton

In an article called What Is Messiah? Jewish Messiah or Christian God by Rick Richardson, he writes:
In his article Cosmic Codebreaker, Pious Heretic, about Sir Isaac Newton (for Christian History Magazine), Karl Giberson writes: "Newton began a sustained reflection on the Christian doctrines and decided that the Anglican status quo was a thorough corruption of the true, original Christianity.
These considerations led him to write over a million words on theology and biblical studies—more than he wrote on any other subject.

But what evidence is there that the Trinity doctrine was FIRST established by the:
CATHOLIC CHURCH?

Another simple click here Nicene Creed https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicene_Creed  reveals yet again another simple fact.
 Nicene Creed https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicene_Creed
Click on image to enlarge.
As we have seen. The Creeds of Christendom were created by the Council of Nicea. And whoever did not follow the NEW DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY, were condemned by the holy catholic and apostolic Church.

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 ).


   Dean Matthews, DD, D. Litt.:
         
         “It must be admitted by everyone who has the rudiments of an historical sense that the doctrine of the Trinity formed no part of the original message. St. Paul did not know it, and would have been unable to understand the meaning of the terms used in the theological formula on which the Church ultimately agreed” (God in Christian Experience, p. 180).

“The evolution of the Trinity: No responsible NT scholar would claim that the doctrine of the Trinity was taught by Jesus or preached by the earliest Christians or consciously held by any writer of the NT. It was in fact slowly worked out in the course of the first few centuries in an attempt to give an intelligible doctrine of God” (The Image of the Invisible God,  SCM Press, 1982, Dr. A. T Hanson, Professor of Theology University of Hull)

         It might tend to moderation and in the end agreement, if we were industrious on all occasions to represent our own  doctrine (the Trinity) as wholly unintelligible (Dr. Hey, Lectures in Divinity, 2, 235


         The Trinity is a contradiction, indeed, and not merely a verbal contradiction, but an incompatibility in the human ideas conveyed. We can scarcely make a nearer approach to an exact enunciation of it, than of saying that one thing is two things. (Sadler’s Gloria Patri, p. 39, A. H. Newman).


As I continued with my next research for the truth, I decided to do some more research on Constantine.

I wanted to know if he was a catholic or a pope, but there are different peoples views and this in itself is another debate.

Did he believe in the trinity or not. He certainly passed it as a new doctrine.
A Trinitarian told me he did not believe in the trinity, but just passed it through to keep the peace.
And Trinitarians would say that.

The fact is the trinity never came directly from GOD or His SON or His disciples.

The Creed was amended to a new version by the First Council of Constantinople in 381. Reff, wikk.

This makes around a 348-year gap from the death and resurrection of Jesus before the trinity faith was finely made as a doctrine.

And it does seem that Constantine was the person who had much to do with establishing the trinity faith, by the fact he passed it as a doctrine. One does not pass something you do not agree with.

It also seems true that Constantine was a PAGAN sun worshipper.
And a fact that cannot be denied is what can be seen at The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which was built by Constantine and is worshipped by Catholics. 

And please look at what is above the so called tomb of Jesus.

Notice the dome above the so called Catholic tomb of Jesus. Its appearance is identical to the SUN, That's interesting because Constantine was a PAGAN sun worshipper.


Now look at the “Shield of the Trinity" diagram bellow?


“Shield of the Trinity" diagram bellow?

And now the all seeing eye?
all seeing eye

Ask a none Catholic Christian what they believe this:
 all seeing eye represents?
The Catholics admit the all seeing eye is the TRINITY.

Now look at the Catholic “Shield of the Trinity” diagram bellow?
“Shield of the Trinity" diagram bellow?


Oddly enough, Jesus said: A tree is known by its fruit.
The slab in my video, you see the person kissing is where they believe Jesus was laid and prepared for His tomb. However the slab was imported from far away and was not there at the time of Jesus.

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.

Below is an interesting film which shows us the TRINITY faith does NOT come directly from the ONE TRUE GOD, but approved by Constantine, with other POPES who adopted the PAGAN gods and then used it to create the false trinity.

The Deception of Constantine.

Video reads:
Published on 22 Mar 2014
I have entitled this youtube vid The Deception of Constantine:The beginnings Romanism. I recommend this vid for you to watch to understand how Constantine was used during the early 4th Century to create a New One World Religion based on Nimrod's Mystery Occult Babylonian Religion but Roman version populary know as MITHRAISM and mixing Judeo-Christian faith, which would give us an idea where Romanism really started. This is an excellent documentary roughly 45 minutes long documentary about Constantine based on archaelogical evidences and ancient writings portraying on how Constantine pretended to be a follower of Jesus of Nazareth. This documentary will take us to the true identity of Constantine, including what really is the spirit behind his fabrication of a New Roman Religion. Historical writings tells us that Constantine and Licinius issued the EDICT of MILAN that legalized Christianity and became the Offical Religion of the Roman Empire, hence Constantine became the First Emperor (First POPE?) of the Roman Catholic Empire and was also given honorary title and office of a bishop. more... http://ow.ly/i/4YjrU

How the Church Fathers pronounced the creed of Jesus to be Heresy and Error!

Wolfson, The Philosophy of the Church Fathers, pp 361-363

The Church Fathers’ conception  of the Trinity was a combination of Jewish monotheism and pagan polytheism, except that to them this combination was a good combination.. In fact, it was to them an ideal combination of what is best in Jewish monotheism and of what is best in pagan polytheism, and consequently they gloried in it and pointed to it as evidence of their belief. We have on this the testimony of Gregory of Nyssa, one of the great figures in the history of the philosophic formulation of the doctrine of the Trinity. His words are repeated by John of Damascus—the last of the Church Fathers. The Christian conception of God, argues Gregory of Nyssa, is neither the polytheism of the Greeks nor the monotheism of the Jews, and consequently it must be true. “For the Truth passes in the mean between these two conceptions, destroying each heresy, and yet, accepting what is useful to it from each. The Jewish dogma is destroyed by the acceptance of the Word and by belief in the Spirit, while the polytheistic error of the Greek school is made to vanish by the unity of the nature abrogating this imagination of plurality” (Oration Catechetica, 3)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TRUE BORN AGAIN Christians are those who follow and believe in Jesus Christ as the LITERAL SON of the ONE TRUE GOD which encompass ALL sects, which is the REQUIREMENT for Salvation.
This ONE scripture below on its own proves and makes this perfectly clear:
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God?
1 John 5:5.

There is NOT ONE single teaching or doctrine by GOD ALMIGHTY or His divine SON, that we are to believe in the Trinity, or that Jesus is THE GOD. If you know of ONE, please do send it to me on my email here: mrsimonbrown@aol.com as I would like to remind you, I am a human being, and capable of making mistakes. If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know. Thank you.
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

That truth on its own proves the oneness Pentecostal faith is FALSE, as the TRINITY faith is FALSE.

When I was  Trinitarian for about 10 years, I was constantly sent articles from my Trinitarian friends about the Catholic faith telling me to run a 100 miles from that faith.

Yet again another MASSIVE Trinitarian CONTRADICTION.
Yet in the other hand, Trinitarians teach and preach to the GULLIBLE unlearned truth seekers to believe and make the man made pagan Catholic trinity doctrine their main and most important doctrine, and should be the FOUNDATION of one's faith to be saved, preaching and saying if we do not believe in the Catholic trinity’s most important teaching, we are on are way to HELL.
And yet there is not a single scripture teaching the Trinity is a issue of salvation.

Here is an interesting article.
List of Catholic Doctrines.
1.      TRINITY  --- “The mystery (see Rev. 17:5) of the Trinity is the central doctrine of the catholic church.  Upon it are based all the teachings of the church” [Handbook for Todays Catholic Page 11.Think about that! The Trinity is the CENTRAL DOCTRINE of the Catholic church and ALL their OTHER doctrines are based upon the TRINITY!  https://sites.google.com/site/christourtruth/list-of-catholic-doctrines

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.

 The staggering amount of MASSIVE Trinitarian CONTRADICTIONS is evidence the Trinity faith is completely FALSE. 
You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 7:20 

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.

To you it was shown,
 that you might know that the LORD is God;
 there is no other besides him.
Deuteronomy 4:35.

--------------------------

Later controversy

Notwithstanding the force of the arguments we have just summarised, a vigorous controversy has been carried on from the end of the seventeenth century to the present day regarding the Trinitarian doctrine of the ante-Nicene Fathers. The Socinian writers of the seventeenth century (e.g. Sand, "Nucleus historiae ecclesiastic", Amsterdam, 1668) asserted that the language of the early Fathers in many passages of their works shows that they agreed not with Athanasius, but with Arius. Petavius, who was at that period engaged on his great theological work, was convinced by their arguments, and allowed that at least some of these Fathers had fallen into grave errors. On the other hand, their orthodoxy was vigorously defended by the Anglican divine Dr. George Bull ("Defensio Fidei Nicaean", Oxford, 1685) and subsequently by Bossuet, Thomassinus, and other Catholic theologians. Those who take the less favourable view assert that they teach the following points inconsistent with the post-Nicene belief of the Church:

That the Son even as regards His Divine Nature is inferior and not equal to the Father;
that the Son alone appeared in the theophanies of the Old Testament, inasmuchas the Father is essentially invisible, the Son, however, not so;
that the Son is a created being;
that the generation of the Son is not eternal, but took place in time.
We shall examine these four points in order. APA citation. Joyce, G. (1912). The Blessed Trinity. In The Catholic Encyclopedia. New York: Robert Appleton Company. Retrieved December 26, 2016 from New Advent: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15047a.htm

UPDATE Jan 3/01/2017.

The oldest surviving manuscript of any part of the New Testament is a papyrus fragment containing verses from John 18; scholars estimate it was written about 125.

We may have sayings of Jesus that are not recorded in the four Gospels. They come from books that never made it into the New Testament but which nonetheless contain some reliable historical information. Extra-biblical sayings that might be from the lips of Jesus: “The one who is near me is near the fire; the one who is far from me is far from the kingdom”; “THERE SHALL BE DIVISIONS AND HERESIES”; “No one can obtain the kingdom of heaven who has not passed through temptation.”

Little-known and remarkable facts about the history of the Bible

How interesting, only 300 years later we read: divisions and heresies occurred called: The Nicene Creed (Greek: Σύμβολον τῆς Νικαίας or, τῆς πίστεως, Latin: Symbolum Nicaenum) is a Symbol of faith widely used in Christian liturgy.

It is called Nicene /ˈnaɪsiːn/ because it was originally adopted in the city of Nicaea (present day Iznik, Turkey) by the First Council of Nicaea in 325.[1] In 381, it was amended at the First Council of Constantinople, and the amended form is referred to as the Nicene or the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed.

Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance for the history of the Bible and the manuscript – the oldest substantial book to survive Antiquity – is of supreme importance for the history of the book.

UPDATE, JUN 1/2017.
Next article by http://heavennet.net/writings/confession-trinity-doctrine/?

What is your confession? – The Trinity Doctrine



Let’s take a look at what different persons or beings believed about who Jesus Christ of Nazareth really was.

The foundation of the Catholic Church (&  most  Protestant churches)

The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. Hence God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three persons make up one God. But rather than each being one-third of God, each person is co-equal and co-eternal, and 100% God
Now compare the above to what others in scripture confess about the identity and role of Jesus Christ.

Demons

Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Christ. (Luke 4:41)
“What have I to do with you, Jesus, you Son of the Most High God?
I adjure you by God, don’t torment me.”
For he said to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”
He asked him, “What is your name?”
He said to him, 
“My name is Legion, for we are many.”
Nowhere do demons say Jesus is God. Instead they knew that he was the son of God.

Satan

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple.
“If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “`He will command his angels
concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’
Nowhere is it written that Satan calls Jesus God. Rather he too knows that Jesus is the son of God.

Roman centurion

“Surely he was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54)
Among this centurion, all the other onlookers, those that heard the words of Jesus, and even those that only heard about him, none of them ever said that Jesus was God, Instead they said he was either mad, a false prophet, a true prophet, Elijah, John the Baptist, the messiah, and the son of God. For the centurion to utter these true words, it must have been obvious that Jesus was claiming to be the son of God, to his mind at least.

Peter

“You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven”. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, (Matthew 16:17-18)
If you were given the opportunity from Jesus to answer the same question from Jesus, “who am I”, would your answer be as Peter or would it instead be “you are God”. If it is the latter, do you not think it at least strange that Peter didn’t take this opportunity to say that Jesus was God like you would? I mean, do you know more than Peter? Surely if the foundation of the Church were really the Trinity, then Peter would have said that Jesus was God and part of the Trinity and then Jesus would have built his Church on that. Instead what we clearly see is that the foundation was built on the fact that Jesus is the son of God and the Christ.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (1 Peter 1:3)
Peter clearly acknowledges that God is the Heavenly Father and that he is the God of Jesus. This is quite different to the Trinity Doctrine which confesses that Jesus is God and part of a Triune God. Nowhere is it written that Peter said or taught that Jesus Christ is God.

John

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (John 20:31)
The Book of John is said to be the book that teaches the Trinity. After all, most consider John 1:1 to be the cornerstone of the Trinity Doctrine. Yet the truth is that the whole point of the Book of John was to believe what John said above, Is it not strange then that men say that John was teaching the Trinity when John himself says that his book was written so that you would believe  that Jesus is the son of God and the messiah.
John also wrote in the first verse of the Book of Revelation the following:
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, (Revelation 1:1)
Clearly God and Jesus are different. And John gave a warning about this book.
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. (Revelation 22:18-19)
If you believe that the Book of Revelation teaches Jesus is God or part of the Trinity, then you are clearly adding to these words of this book.

Paul

Paul’s creed is as follows:
For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. (1 Corinthians 8:5-6)
Notice that Paul says for US, there is ONE God the Father and ONE Lord, the Lord Jesus Christ. So why is it then that many others basically say, for THEM, there is one God the Father, Son, and Spirit. And one Lord, the Lord Father, Lord Son, and Lord Spirit. Surely this is a departure from the truth.
In case you think this is just a difficult translation, Paul basically repeats his creed here:
there is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Ephesians 4:4-6)
and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 1:4)
Where in Paul’s creed is the Trinity? Where in Paul’s creed is Jesus is God. Clearly according to our brother Paul, Jesus is the Lord and the Son. And to show you that Lord is different to God, I present you with the words of Peter:
“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ. (Acts 2:36)
So Paul and Peter demonstrate that Paul was an avid teacher of Jesus being the son of God, the messiah, and the Lord and that it was God who made Jesus Lord. Nowhere does Paul teach that Jesus is God or part of a Trinity.

Gabriel

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. (Luke 1:32-35)
God’s messenger Gabriel, tell us who Jesus is. Nowhere in scripture does Gabriel or any other angel state that Jesus is God or part of the Trinity. He even forecasts that he will be called the Son of the Most High. Who is the Most High then? Certainly not Jesus because he is his son of the Most High.

Jesus

Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. (John 17:3)
To those who won’t listen to Peter, John, or Paul, surely they will listen to the words of Jesus? And if anyone knew who Jesus was it would surely be Jesus himself. So what does Jesus say about God and himself? He states that the following truth is eternal life. And what truth is that? Is it the Trinity as many would have you believe? Is it that Jesus is God? No, it is that the Father is the only true God and that the only true God sent Jesus Christ into the world.
Do we believe what Jesus said, or shall we believe the cleverly devised fables of men and doctrines of demons which seems to be the majority’s opinion on this subject.

The Father

“This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to Him.” (Mark 9:7)
Notice that the highest authority in existence (the Father) did not say that Jesus is God and part of the Trinity. He never even hinted at such an idea. If you or anyone else rejects Peter, John, Paul, and even Jesus words above, then will you listen to the Father?

So what should your confession be?

Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son.. (1 John 2:22)
Clearly, Jesus is the messiah and the son of God. To believe otherwise is of the antichrist spirit. Replacing this with a doctrine that Jesus is God or part of a Trinity is clearly wrong. Believing this and adding it as a requirement is even worse. Yet many churches have done this very thing by making the Trinity Doctrine the foundation of their church. In scripture we clearly see that the true Church is the Body of Christ and this Church is built on the truth that Jesus is the Christ and the son of God. Not the Trinity as many expect.
Now that we can see from scripture who Jesus really is, what should be our confession right now? It should be that Jesus Christ is Lord.
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    and every tongue acknowledge 
    that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)
So why not start today. Instead of confessing that Jesus Christ is God, why not confess the truth instead, that Jesus Christ is Lord, the son of God, and the messiah. If you truly believe that, then you believe correctly regarding who Jesus is and this is important because it is the Father who has revealed the son to us.

The Roman Catholic faith



Did you know that the Catholic Faith is defined as the Anthanasian Creed which is what the Trinity Doctrine is. In other words, the Trinity Doctrine is the very definition of the Roman Catholic faith. This means that while many Protestant and Charismatic churches may believe this doctrine, they are defined as being Roman Catholic in as much as they agree to their creed and foundation. Of course they reject the Pope’s authority and many other doctrines, but have kept their main doctrine. The Roman Catholic Church’s creed is as follows:
Whosoever will be saved, before all things, it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith.  Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.  And the catholic faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity, neither confounding the Persons nor dividing the Substance.  For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost.  But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is all one; the glory equal, the majesty coeternal. 
Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost.  The Father uncreate, the Son uncreate, and the Holy Ghost uncreate. The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible, and the holy Ghost incomprehensible.  The Father eternal, the Son eternal, and the Holy Ghost eternal.  And yet they are not three Eternals, but one Eternal. As there are not three Uncreated nor three Incomprehensibles, but one Uncreated and one Incomprehensible. So likewise the Father is almighty, the Son almighty, and the Holy Ghost almighty.  And yet they are not three Eternals, but one Eternal. 
As there are not three Uncreated nor three Incomprehensibles, but one Uncreated and one Incomprehensible, so likewise the Father is almighty, the Son almighty, and the Holy Ghost almighty.  And yet they are not three Almighties, but one Almighty.
So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God.  And yet they are not three Gods, but one God.  So likewise the Father is Lord, the Son Lord, and the Holy Ghost Lord, and yet not three Lords, but one Lord. 
For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge every Person by Himself to be God and Lord, so we are forbidden by the catholic religion to say, There be three Gods or three Lords. 
The Father is made of none, neither created nor begotten.  The Son is of the Father alone, not made nor created but begotten.  The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son, neither made nor created nor begotten, but proceeding. 
So, there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts.  And in this Trinity none is before or after another; none is greater or less than another; but the whole three Persons are coeternal together and coequal, so that in all things, as is aforesaid, the Unity in Trinity and the Trinity in Unity is to be worshiped. 
Any person, therefore, that will be saved must thus think of the Trinity. 
Furthermore, it is necessary to everlasting salvation that we also believe faithfully the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.  For the right faith is that we believe and confess that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man; God of the Substance of the Father, begotten before the worlds; and Man of the substance of His mother, born in the world; Perfect God and perfect Man, of a reasonable soul and human flesh subsisting.  Equal to the Father as touching His Godhead and inferior to the Father as touching His manhood; who although He be God and Man, yet He is not two, but one Christ;  one, not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh, but by taking the manhood into God;  one altogether; not by confusion of Substance, but by unity of Person. 
For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man, so God and Man is one Christ; Who suffered for our salvation; descended into hell; rose again the third day from the dead;  He ascended into heaven; He sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God Almighty; from whence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.  At whose coming all men shall rise again with their bodies and shall give an account of their own works.  And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting; and they that have done evil, into everlasting fire. 
This is the catholic faith; which except you believe faithfully and firmly, you cannot be saved.”
So there you have it. The Trinity Doctrine is the very definition of the Roman Catholic faith and even though many who believe it may reject the Pope’s authority, nevertheless, they believe in the Catholic faith which is a different foundation to the one that Jesus built his Church on. That foundation can be found here.
Matthew 16:16-18
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 
18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church,and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
Can you see how much easier to understand is the foundation of the Church that Jesus builds compared to the Roman Catholic Church? And remember this, Jesus said in Matthew 11:29-30
29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
