Application of old pagan concept of trinity

Many who believe in the trinity are surprised to learn that the idea of divine beings existing as trinities or triads long predated Christianity. Yet the evidence is abundantly documented. So let us have a look at some of the evidence.

Marie Sinclair, Countess of Caithness, in her 1876 book Old Truths in a New Light, states,

“It is generally, although erroneously, supposed that the doctrine of the Trinity is of Christian origin. Nearly every nation of antiquity possessed a similar doctrine. [The early Catholic theologian] St. Jerome testifies unequivocally, ‘All the ancient nations believed in the Trinity’.” — (p. 382)

Notice how the following quotes document belief in a divine trinity in many regions and religions of the ancient world.

Sumeria

Ur III Sumerian cuneiform for An or Anu, the earliest attested Sky Father deity. In Sumerian religion, he was also “King of the Gods“, “Lord of the Constellations, Spirits and Demons”, and “Supreme Ruler of the Kingdom of Heaven”, where Anu himself wandered the highest Heavenly Regions.

“The universe was divided into three regions each of which became the domain of a god. Anu‘s share was the sky. The earth was given to Enlil. Ea became the ruler of the waters. Together they constituted the triad of the Great Gods.” — (The Larousse Encyclopedia of Mythology, 1994, pp. 54, 55)

Babylonia

“The ancient Babylonians recognised the doctrine of a trinity, or three persons in one god— as appears from a composite god with three heads forming part of their mythology, and the use of the equilateral triangle, also, as an emblem of such trinity in unity.” — (Thomas Dennis Rock, The Mystical Woman and the Cities of the Nations, 1867, pp. 22, 23)

India

Purana or “ancient, old” Manuscript

“The Puranas, one of the Hindoo Bibles of more than 3,000 years ago, contain the following passage:

‘O ye three Lords! know that I recognise only one God. Inform me, therefore, which of you is the true divinity, that I may address to him alone my adorations.’

The three gods, Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva [or Shiva], becoming manifest to him, replied,

‘Learn, O devotee, that there is no real distinction between us. What to you appears such is only the semblance. The single being appears under three forms by the acts of creation, preservation, and destruction, but he is one.’

Hence the triangle was adopted by all the ancient nations as a symbol of the Deity … Three was considered among all the pagan nations as the chief of the mystical numbers, because, as Aristotle remarks, it contains within itself a beginning, a middle, and an end. Hence we find it designating some of the attributes of almost all the pagan gods.” (Sinclair, pp. 382, 383)

Greece

“In the Fourth Century B.C. Aristotle wrote:

‘All things are three, and thrice is all: and let us use this number in the worship of the gods; for, as the Pythagoreans say, everything and all things are bounded by threes, for the end, the middle and the beginning have this number in everything, and these compose the number of the Trinity’.” — (Arthur Weigall, Paganism in Our Christianity, 1928, pp. 197, 198)

Egypt

“The Hymn to Amun decreed that

Re-Horakhty.svg

Re, also spelled Ra or Pra, in ancient Egyptian religion, god of the sun and one of the creator gods, who rose from the ocean of chaos on the primeval hill, creating himself and then in turn engendering eight other gods.

‘No god came into being before him (Amun)’

and that

‘All gods are three: Amun, Re and Ptah, and there is no second to them. Hidden is his name as Amon, he is Re in face, and his body is Ptah.’

… This is a statement of trinity, the three chief gods of Egypt subsumed into one of them, Amon. Clearly, the concept of organic unity within plurality got an extraordinary boost with this formulation. Theologically, in a crude form it came strikingly close to the later Christian form of plural Trinitarian monotheism.” — (Simson Najovits, Egypt, Trunk of the Tree, Vol. 2, 2004, pp. 83, 84)

Other areas

Many other areas had their own divine trinities.

In Greece they were Zeus, Poseidon and Adonis. The Phoenicians worshipped Ulomus, Ulosuros and Eliun. Rome worshipped Jupiter, Mars and Venus. In Germanic nations they were called Wodan, Thor and Fricco. Regarding the Celts, one source states,

“The ancient heathen deities of the pagan Irish, Criosan, Biosena, and Seeva, or Sheeva, are doubtless the Creeshna [Krishna], Veeshnu [Vishnu], [or the all-inclusive] Brahma, and Seeva [Shiva], of the Hindoos.” — (Thomas Maurice, The History of Hindostan, Vol. 2, 1798, p. 171)

Arthur Edward Pearse Brome Weigall, English Egyptologist, stage designer, journalist and author, at the Temple of Edfu, before 1913

The deception is beautifully seen by the astonishing admission of Arthur Weigall who himself is a Trinitarian. Egyptologist Arthur Weigall summed up the influence of ancient beliefs on the adoption of the trinity doctrine by the Catholic Church in the following excerpt from his book:

“It must not be forgotten that Jesus Christ never mentioned such a phenomenon [the Trinity], and nowhere in the New Testament does the word ‘Trinity’ appear. The idea was only adopted by the Church three hundred years after the death of our Lord; and the origin of the conception is entirely pagan …
The ancient Egyptians, whose influence on early religious thought was profound, usually arranged their gods or goddesses in trinities: there was the trinity of Osiris, Isis, and Horus, the trinity of Amen, Mut, and Khonsu, the trinity of Khnum, Satis, and Anukis, and so forth …
The early Christians, however, did not at first think of applying the idea to their own faith. They paid their devotions to God the Father and to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and they recognised the mysterious and undefined existence of the Holy Spirit; but there was no thought of these three being an actual Trinity, co-equal and united in One …The application of this old pagan conception of a Trinity to Christian theology was made possible by the recognition of the Holy Spirit as the required third ‘Person,’ co-equal with the other ‘Persons’…The idea of the Spirit being co-equal with God was not generally recognised until the second half of the Fourth Century A.D… . In the year 381 the Council of Constantinople added to the earlier Nicene Creed a description of the Holy Spirit as

‘the Lord, and giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father, who with the Father and Son together is worshipped and glorified.’

  1. To understand the trinity you must understand that God is greater than human. His ways are not our ways; His ways are higher than our ways. Any attempt at man to deny the trinity using the wisdom and knowledge of man is laughable to God. The best way to understand the trinity is to think of it in terms of man. See man exists in 3 dimensions: mind, body and spirit. These three dimensions are in fact 3 separate entities; however, these three parts make up one human being. The body exists in the natural. It’s concerns are only for the things that exist in the natural (the tangible); the spirit exists in the invisible supernatural world; its desires conflict with the body because the spirit is immortal; therefore, its concerns are of immortality and all that exists that is immortal such as God. The mind holds the executive function. It is the mind that determines what direction man will take. Will it listen to the body or the spirit? Those who walk in the spirit are of God because He exists in spirit. Those who walk in body are dead men walking. The body has an expiration date but the soul is immortal. Those who walk in the body walk towards their doom; that is, they are walking headfirst into an eternity in the lake of fire where they will be no comfort, where they will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, where the worm die not. It’s where everyone who rejects the trinity will go! Be careful what you put up on the internet! God is taking record of everything we do including the things we say on the internet. If you put something on the internet you should ask yourself: am I prepared for the eternal consequences that will result from my actions; because your actions don’t just effect your eternity but it can effect the eternity of every person who reads your heretical doctrine and that’s something that God does not take lightly

    • Dear Kritzle, I am fully aware that the Divine Creator is much much higher than man, though I can assure you I do not believe in a trinity but as you say probably this gives me full insight in the false human dogma, because I also believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, where is told that God does not tell lies and is an eternal Spirit Whom man can not see, and to Whom man can do nothing. That eternal God said clearly that Jesus is His only begotten son.

      By believing the bible and not human doctrines I also see clear that you are taken away by the Greek-Roman philosophy and false teaching of “man exists in 3 dimensions: mind, body and spirit.” according to the holy Scriptures there are in fact no such 3 separate entities.
      The soul is the being of a person, plant, animal and human beings existence (by the breath of life). The body has an expiration date and when he dies it is finished and no soul that would be immortal. The bible is clear that each human person, also Jesus is under the curse of death by the fall of the first man.

      “Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (Ezekiel 18:4 ASV)

      “And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any manner of work in that same day, that soul will I destroy from among his people.” (Leviticus 23:30 ASV)

      “For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5 ASV)

      “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in Sheol, whither thou goest.” (Ecclesiastes 9:10 ASV)

      “His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; In that very day his thoughts perish.” (Psalms 146:4 ASV)

      “For Sheol cannot praise thee, death cannot celebrate thee: They that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.” (Isaiah 38:18 ASV)

      “19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; and man hath no preeminence above the beasts: for all is vanity. 20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.” (Ecclesiastes 3:19-20 ASV)

      “The dead praise not Jehovah, Neither any that go down into silence;” (Psalms 115:17 ASV)

      “For David, after he had in his own generation served the counsel of God, fell asleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:” (Acts 13:36 ASV)

      • I’m very confused by your statement. You say you believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God yet you reject the trinity which is His word! Romans 1:19, 20 states:”Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse.”(Deuteronomy 6:4);
        Acts 17:29 states…”Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the GODHEAD is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”Colossians 2:9…”For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the GODHEAD bodily.” “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and THESE THREE ARE ONE.” —1st John 5:7; also it’s the descendants of Adam who are under the curse of death because we have the blood of Adam; Jesus was not under the curse of death because He does not have Adams blood! He was immaculately conceived with pure untainted blood running through His veins. His death was a sacrifice to atone for the sins of man to The Father. 12Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—

        13To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law. 14Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.

        15But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! (Romans 5:12-17)
        I’m serious you should really pray about all this before you get keystroke happy; I don’t think you realize the weight your words will carry. I’m saying this out of love and conviction

        • Where do you get it form that

          ” Jesus was not under the curse of death because He does not have Adams blood!”

          Again you bring something forwards that is no where written in the Bible.

          It is true that Jesus was immaculately conceived from the Power of god (the Holy Spirit) but in the womb of the young girl Jesus grew as a being of flesh and blood. Later in his life he also proofed to those who doubted him, that he was not spirit, but a human being of flesh and blood and bones, who bore the wounds of his torture.

          Where do you get it that Jesus had

          “pure untainted blood running through His veins”

          You yourself write that Jesus

          His death was a sacrifice to atone for the sins of man to The Father

          though you claim Jesus to be God and God cannot die. Next you quoet the reality of what we should consider something so precious that we are thankful for what Jesus really did, doing God His Will and not his own will (when he would be God it would always been his own will).

          You also seem to ignore that sin entered the world through one man, that it was also by one man that the curse of sin was brought to an end. Though yourself quote the sentence which is written in your preferred bible translation the King James Bible:

          Romans 5:12-17 KJV-1611 (12) Wherefore, as by one man sinne entred into the world, and death by sin: and so death passed vpon all men, for that all haue sinned. (13) For vntill the Law sinne was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no Law. (14) Neuertheles, death reigned from Adam to Moses, euen ouer them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adams transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come: (15) But not as the offence, so also is the free gift: for if through the offence of one, many bee dead: much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man Iesus Christ, hath abounded vnto many. (16) And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the iudgement was by one to condemnation: but the free gift is of many offences vnto iustification. (17) For if by one mans offence, death raigned by one, much more they which receiue abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousnes, shall reigne in life by one, Iesus Christ.

          Having Paul telling us that by that one man (the 1st Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by the means of sin; and so death went over all men, insomuch that all men sinned. We are all fallible and nobody, even not the pope, is infallible.As human beings we all do faults. Though death may have reigned from the first Adam to Moses, even over them also that sinned not, which means that there have been people who managed to follow the rules of God and did not trespass God’s commandments, with like transgression as did Adam: which is the similitude of him that was born in Bethelehem, after his death was taken into heaven and is coming to return to earth to judge the living and the dead.

          That man of flesh and blood, the sent one from God has really given his life (he did not fake his death what he would have done when He is Gdo – and for what use?). It was that Jesus planted in the womb of the virgin Miriam/Mary/Maria who is the gift from God (and not Himself) which is not like as the sin. For if, through the sin of one, many be dead: much more plenteous, upon many, was the grace of God and gift by grace, which grace was given by one man, Jesus Christ, and which you do not seem to be willing to accept, which is a shame and brings you more in danger than those who accept Jesus to be their saviour and like is written in the Bible accept him as the sent one from God and as the only begotten beloved son of God.

          You should know that the gift is not over one sin, as death came through one sin of one that sinned, but because of Jesus not doing his own will and prepared to give his body as a ransom offering for all mankind, that it is now that he, though lower than angels, was made higher and has become to be allowed to sit at the right hand of Gdo, to be a mediator between man and God, which you all seem to ignore.

          Please come to see how damnation came of one sin unto condemnation, but God His precious Gift came to justify from many sins. For if by the sin of one, death reigned by the means of one, much more shall they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life by the means of one man, the 2nd Adam, that is to say, Jesus Christ.

Certainly, reasoning like this is quite ridiculous! It should also be mentioned, that claiming that any one language uses the only the correct word for God is tantamount to denying the universality of God’s message to mankind, which was to all nations, tribes and people through various prophets who spoke different languages.

                      Naturally for sure when you worship three gods as your gods, your god would be totally different than our God and the God of the Bible who should be the God of all lovers of God, Jews, Christians and Muslims.

                    • Dear Kritzle, nice you are willing to react to the sayings over here. With saying “The god of the Quran is not my god” what do you really mean?

                      I can clearly see that your god, being a three-headed god is not the God of the Quran, nor the God of the Jews, nor the God of the real followers of Jesus Christ, the real Christians.

                      In case you would mean “Allah”, I would like to remind you that that word may perhaps not be used where you are living, to denote a god or the God. In many countries though, it is a general word to use when speaking about God. You should understand that in many languages they do not use your English words, though many English people want to have it so or even think the Biblical characters had an English name instead of their Hebrew, Aramaic or Arabic names.

                      Jesus who spoke Aramaic also said in his own language “Allah” when he spoke about God, the same as the Catholic and protestant priests and pope still do today. The Allah of the Muslims is not at all an other Allah or God than the ones of the Jews and real Christians. The word might also still be used for a god who does not resemble the True One God of Israel, because those persons also using that title “Allah” also talking about Jesus being “allah”.

                      Have a look in your Bible perhaps you might find it even written in Psalm 22:1 or in Mark 15.34, and Matthew 27.46 for which the “translated” Bible says:

                      “And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice saying Eloi, Eloi, la ma sabchtani (sabakhtani)? which was translated into English as “My God, My God, why has Thou forsaken me?” or “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?”

                      “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?” that is, “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME?”” (Matthew 27:46 NAS)

                      “Eli” being a form of saying “Oh Allah” or “My God”

                      Problem is that lots of English speaking people only want to hear the same sound and same names like they pronounce words or names. As such we may find lots of English people who do not want to accept that the other word than theirs, like “Allah” would be the same God as their God or their god.

                      They should know that in many languages “Allah” is a common title for “God” whilst in other countries they may use that title and also other titles. For example where I live now, in Flemish Brabant, they use “God”, “Allah” and “Jehovah” when speaking about God. Do you think they are all speaking then about an other God? And what about those in North Brabant where they say “de Heere”, are they too having an other God than yours and us? And what about the Friesch who say “mynhear” also to God? In Esperanto we do find “Sinjoro” and “Dio” for God. This are all words which are frequently used in the Netherlands, but because they would not fit with your word “God” you would consider them all worshipping different gods?

                      The people who say in Dutch: God, de Heere, de Heere heere, de Heere, de Ene, de Enige, de Almachtige, Elohim, Jehovah, Jahwe, de El, El, de Al, Allah are all talking about the Most High Divine God in whatever religious group they may belong or when they are even atheists, who would also use those words to indicate God in our regions. Also when they would say “Gott”, “Dieu”, “Dio’ and “Dios” also very frequently used words to talk about God they all have it about the same figure, like those English people who use for God the word “God” or also “Lord”, whilst others would use “Yahweh” or “Yehovah” or “Jehovah”.

                • Dear Kritzle having listened to the YouTube Audio’s you linked yourself for me to read I heard the same said as what others said on here, but you not seem to believe. Why do you not believe what the Bible you yourself let me hear to says?

                  “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17 AV)

                  “21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was [the son] of Heli,” (Luke 3:21-23 AV)

                  “And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.” (Luke 9:35 AV)

                  “While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” (Matthew 17:5 AV)

                  “Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.” (Matthew 12:18 AV)

                  “For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (2 Peter 1:17 AV)

                  Why do you keep to worship a man of flesh and blood whilst the God of your bible is like mine god a Spirit?

                  “God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 AV)

                  “But to us [there is but] one God, the Father, of whom [are] all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom [are] all things, and we by him.” (1 Corinthians 8:6 AV)

                  “That [men] may know that thou, whose name alone [is] JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth.” (Psalms 83:18 AV)

                  Why also do you not believe in Christ Jesus his words and in his God?

                  “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God.” (John 20:17 AV)

                  “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” (1 Peter 1:3 AV)

                  Look also what more contemporary versions of the King James Bible write, which is exactly the same what others and I believe about Allah/God and about His sent one Jesus. WHy do you reject those Bible sayings ?

                  “21 ¶ Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized. And while He prayed the heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from Heaven, which said, “THOU ART MY BELOVED SON; IN THEE I AM WELL PLEASED.” 23 And Jesus Himself had become about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, who was the son of Heli,” (Luke 3:21-23 KJ21)

                  “that men may know that Thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the Most High over all the earth.” (Psalms 83:18 KJ21)

          “this out of love and conviction”

          The same we, out of love for those around us, we want to show the world the Way to God, who is Jesus the Messiah, the son of man and son of God who gave his precious life for mankind, putting his own will aside, doing the Will of God.

          We too want to do the Will of God and therefore prefer to keep to the Biblical teachings instead of false human doctrines like the Trinity. Perhaps you better should take more time to read the Bible with having your doctrinal ideas put aside, so that you can let the Word of God come into your mind. So please start reading “son of God” when there is written “son of God” and do not read “god the son” in such places. When there is written “Jesus” in the Bible read and think about Jesus and do not replace his name with “God”.

          With all our love, wishing that God may bless you and help you in your quest about the Truth.

        • kriztle34,

          You should not be confused by my statement, for the simple reason that I believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God where nothing is said about a or the trinity. You claim to be it in God His Word, so I would love to see the places where it is written. All the quotes you brought forward do not say such a thing at all that Jesus would be God.

          You also seem to forget what the task was Jesus got from his heavenly Father. You also seem to overlook that when a person gets born form someone he or she has qualities from the father and the mother, and as such Jesus had or has qualities of God and of his earthly mother. Jesus also told us that he came to make it clear Who God is and what He expect from us. Jesus did not come to declare himself, but to declare the Only One true God, the God of Israel.

          You quote the apostle Paul saying in his letter to the Romans 1:19, 20 states:

          ”Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse.”(Deuteronomy 6:4);

          but this is not exactly what is written in the Bible, to which we may not add or alter words. I can find in the Bible

          “19 because that which is known of God is manifest in them; for God manifested it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, [even] his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse:” (Romans 1:19-20 ASV)

          This verse talks about God Who can be seen in nature. There we can see The Power of God at work, though man can not see God and live. It also states that God is invisible, which you seem to forget. Jesus was seen by many, who all did not fall death. There where even a few who came out of the dead, when they heard Jesus calling for them.

          You should know that here the apostle refers to man who should be able by taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of God His Divine Being. So nobody has a good excuse to say he or she did not know God or could not help it to have taken a wrong god, like you seem to take Jesus as your god.

          Again you seem not to understand the full essence of what the Bible says in Luke his work on the Acts of the apostles, where that passage says that if we are the God-created, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to think we could hire a sculptor to chisel a god out of stone for us, (like so many name Christians make pictures of their god Jesus and of whom they call God the Father, though no pictures may be made of God) does it?

          “Being then the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and device of man.” (Acts 17:29 ASV)

          Look also at other parts in Scriptures which make it perhaps more clear for you what is spoken about and why it is so important only to worship One God and not a three-godhead, you believe in.

          “4 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any likeness [of any thing] that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them; for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me,” (Exodus 20:4-5 ASV)

          “I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise unto graven images.” (Isaiah 42:8 ASV)

          “No man hath beheld God at any time: if we love one another, God abideth in us, and his love is perfected in us:” (1 John 4:12 ASV)

          “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24 ASV)

          Jesus to his disciples showed his wounds saying that he is not a ghost. In case he is God that would again have been a lie than. but Jesus as well his disciples did know very well that Jesus is not God. Jesus’ disciples asked their followers to come to believe in that sent one from God.

          “For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, [himself] man, Christ Jesus,” (1 Timothy 2:5 ASV)

          I can only pray and hope that once you shall come to see who Jesus is and what for grands he has done for you and me and all people in the world. I sincerely hope you shall one day come ot understand that Jesus is the Way to God and that you shall come to believe in him.

          “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 ASV)

          I hope one day you shall come to walk in the faith, not wanting to be any more of the world, but willing to be of God

          “(for we walk by faith, not by sight);” (2 Corinthians 5:7 ASV)

          and that you do not have to have a god that was seen by many, nor would have graven images of your god, in front you might bow down or pray, but shall come to pray to whom Jesus told the world to pray to: the Heavenly Father and Only One God Who is One

          “while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18 ASV)

          Please also think about following verses from the Bible:

          “yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we unto him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him.” (1 Corinthians 8:6 ASV)

          “Hear, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah:” (Deuteronomy 6:4 ASV)

          “That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth.” (Psalms 83:18 ASV)

          “These things spake Jesus; and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that the son may glorify thee:” (John 17:1 ASV)

          “And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, [even] Jesus Christ.” (John 17:3 ASV)

          “And I have seen, and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.” (John 1:34 ASV)

          “29 Jesus saith unto him, Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed. 30 Many other signs therefore did Jesus in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book: 31 but these are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in his name.” (John 20:29-31 ASV)

          “16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 16:16-17 ASV)

          “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:15 ASV)

          “5 For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, [himself] man, Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself a ransom for all; the testimony [to be borne] in its own times;” (1 Timothy 2:5-6 ASV)

      “God is taking record of everything we do including the things we say on the internet. If you put something on the internet you should ask yourself: am I prepared for the eternal consequences that will result from my actions; because your actions don’t just effect your eternity but it can effect the eternity of every person who reads your heretical doctrine and that’s something that God does not take lightly”

      We do not present heretical doctrines, though you in your reaction seem to have many heretical and human doctrines uttered.

      We offer the public biblical doctrines and warn them for the human doctrines and false teachings, may they be in Christendom or in any other religion.

      We are fully aware of the importance of the task the master teacher Jeshua (Jesus Christ) has given his followers. We as followers of Christ Jesus have the task to preach the Gospel of the coming Kingdom of God but also to show the people the Way to God. Jesus, the sent one from God is the one people should come to believe. They should not believe all those false human doctrines, but should keep to the Biblical doctrines and accept Jesus, the son of man and son of God, being the authorised one from God, who is our Messiah or the Kristos (Christ) and the only one by whom we received the grace of salvation and can find the way to the small gate to the Kingdom of God. In him people should come to believe. A pity you are not yet in that stadium to believe what the Bible says about that special man, who is the only begotten beloved son of God.

      • The Bible, God’s Word, proclaims that there is ONE God (Deuteronomy 6:4), Who has revealed Himself to mankind in three distinct Persons; namely, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Although the term “Trinity” is not found in the Scriptures, the word “Godhead” most certainly is — in 3 places!

        Romans 1:19, 20 states…

        “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse.”

        Some people (such as Muslims) foolishly claim that belief in a Godhead (aka, Trinity) means worship of three gods (polytheism). This simply reflects their woeful ignorance of the Word of God. The LORD our God is ONE Lord (Deuteronomy 6:4); but He does exist in three Persons, i.e., a Trinity.

        Acts 17:29 states…

        “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the GODHEAD is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”

        Colossians 2:9…

        “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the GODHEAD bodily.”

        1st John 5:7 is in the Original Greek. If there were no other verse of the King James Bible testifying of the Godhead, 1st John 5:7 would be enough for any Bible-believer to know that God exists in three Persons — the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit…

        “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and THESE THREE ARE ONE.” —1st John 5:7

        Now if you have a modern corrupt bible, then you won’t find 1st John 5:7 correctly rendered. I went out and bought a literal translation of the Bible in Greek and Hebrew, based on the “Textus Receptus” (or Received Text). It contains 1st John 5:7 just as the King James Bible faithfully renders. The translators of the King James Bible rejected certain manuscripts as heretical. The manuscripts which they did accept became know as the “Received Text.”

Although the term “Trinity” is not found in the Scriptures, the word “Godhead” most certainly is — in 3 places!

          but there is nowhere in the Bible said such a thing that the godhead would exist out of three. You yourself quote the essence of the Godhead that He is One.

          “Hear, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah:” (Deuteronomy 6:4 ASV)

          than suddenly you seem to forget what Jesus himself says:

          “29 Jesus answered, The first is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God, the Lord is one: 30 and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.” (Mark 12:29-30 ASV)

          Clearly Jesus says God is only One and indicates we should love that One God totally.

          “And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.” (Luke 10:27 ASV)

          Your quoting certain passages from Scriptures make it clear you are confusing two Biblical characters and taking Jesus to be the same being as God, which is not. by that confusion or keeping to human doctrines you do not seem to see what is really written in those verses and are also misunderstanding ways of speaking. Though you should always remember the Jewish idiomatic speaking and following the thought of Jesus and his disciples.

          As such you do not seem to understand the old nor the still used expression of “being one”. Today we still use that expression, but either you do not know it or you do really understand it wrongly and really think when people are one they are one and the same person?!?

          In your way of thinking then the apostle Paul expects us to become God because we do have to become one in Christ like Jesus was one with God. When you take that unity of Jesus with God, to be the proof that Jesus is God than our unity with Christ and our unity with God would also make us in Christ and in God.

          Are you yourself aware that you yourself are twisting the words of the Bible? You a.o. say that 1st John 5:7 says

          “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and THESE THREE ARE ONE.”

          though in the hundreds of Bible translations nowhere is written such a thing and certainly not with such shouting language (in capitals). Just to quote one translation:

          “And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is the truth.” (1 John 5:7 ASV)

          That passage talks about the witnesses, bringing us a “triple testimony” (if you would like) “For there are three who bear witness, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and the three agree in one.” (1 John 5:8 ASV)

          and tells us that

          “For there are three who bear witness, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and the three agree in one.” (1 John 5:8 ASV)

          /three that testify and three that agree/ like all should become one like the Father is in Christ and Jesus wants to be in God, but all in them too, that the world may believe that God had send Jesus, what you do not seem to believe, because you think it is God Himself Who came down to earth.

          “19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. 20 ¶ Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us: that the world may believe that thou didst send me. 22 And the glory which thou hast given me I have given unto them; that they may be one, even as we [are] one; 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me.” (John 17:19-23 ASV)

          We might have some modern corrupt bibles according your thinking, but of the many versions in many languages, the paraphrased versions may confuse lots of people, but the literal translations are very clear and should be very clear for those who are willing to accept the words like they are printed, and not think other words or names than there are pointed at.

          You write “you won’t find 1st John 5:7 correctly rendered. I went out and bought a literal translation of the Bible in Greek and Hebrew, based on the “Textus Receptus” (or Received Text).

          Though that text says

          7 (TR) οτι τρεις εισιν οι μαρτυρουντες εν τω ουρανω ο πατηρ ο λογος και το αγιον πνευμα και ουτοι οι τρεις εν εισιν

          so not at all saying what you claim it to say.

          You should also notice that 1st John 5:7 in the King James Bible faithfully renders

          1 John 5:7-8 KJV-1611 For there are three that beare record in heauen, the Father, the Word, and the holy Ghost: and these three are one. (8) And there are three that beare witnesse in earth, the Spirit, and the Water, and the Blood, and these three agree in one.

          Notice also how blood, water and spirit testify and earlier God Who is Eternal Spirit and Who has Spoken (the Word) = God His Word (and not Jesus his word) and His Spirit (the Pneuma or Power of God or God His thinking).

          You yourself warns us for our writing on the internet and about the importance of telling the truth, but once more you seem to write things which can not be justified by the writings in the Bible. Should you then also not have to be more careful?

    • It was so nice of you to bring up such an important matter. Therefore we do hope you do not mind that we made use of your reaction to write an other article at our Lifestyle magazine From Guestwriters. There we go deeper into the matter of seriousness concerning our prosperity and ability to enter the small gate of the Kingdom of God. In the article we also pinpoint how we must be careful not to neglect religious instruction and authority and should always prefer to keep to the Biblical teachings instead of adhering human doctrines.

      • You can write what ever you want to write but when you teach a doctrine that denies the trinity your words are spoken in vain. Don’t allow your pride to lead you astray. Here’s a little quote by Jesus Himself “I and the Father are one.” The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” John 10:30-33 By denying the trinity you are doing what these people did in to Christ in the scripture all over again. You are crucifying Him all over again.

  3. Using the Pinging this way is one way to invite people or force the invitation upon them. But trust me when i say I am not offended because that’s what I tried once, twice, or thrice, but I found out that truth shouldn’t need any marketing. Those who look for it eventually find some part of it. As you did, and you try more to discover it. When people like you try to describe Trinity, that’s my cue to move on to something else because I know you will do the justice to it and do the necessary research. Tell it to the right people.

    So keep it up bro, just write a “fist-bump” in reply so I can know we cleared the air 😉
