It had become the general rule to brand all those who did not subscribe to the trinity doctrine as Arians. What a tragic mistake. It really is a must watch. So it is not surprising that the two things the Roman Catholic Church mock Protestants for are the two things they brought into the Church that are pagan, and both originated from sun worship, which was Satan worship from Babylon. One remained true to the plain and simple teachings of the Bible and the other became increasingly compromised with pagan thought and practices adopted from the Greco-Roman world. History is very clear and leaves no doubt that God used Lucian of Antioch for many very important works and that he played a major role in keeping God's true Church alive, though it was eventually driven underground. The RCC gives equal credence to tradition and scripture. (See George E. Karamanolis, Plato and Aristotle in Agreement, Oxford University Press, 2006, p. 208), As previously seen, the trinity doctrine is not found in Scripture but it is found in Greek philosophy and paganism. The precise origin of this type of diagram is unknown, but it is said that it was influenced by 12th century experiments in symbolizing the trinity in abstract visual form. These two and other friends of Arius worked towards getting Arius returned. You will also note the triangles around the heads on the bottom left and right with one having three circles representing the sun and the other with one circle representing the sun and the rays of light within. Many Catholics deny this ever happened but their own Church admits that it is true. It was first used by Tertullian at the close of the 2nd century, but received wide currency [common use in intellectual discussion] and formal elucidation [clarification] only in the 4th and 5th centuries.” — (1996, “Trinity”), The New Bible Dictionary goes on to explain that “the formal doctrine of the Trinity was the result of several inadequate attempts to explain who and what the Christian God really is ... To deal with these problems the Church Fathers met in [A.D.] 325 at the Council of Nicaea to set out an orthodox biblical definition concerning the divine identity.” However, it wasn't until 381, “at the Council of Constantinople, [that] the divinity of the Spirit was affirmed.”. So the fires of this Godhead quarrel burned brightly for over fifty years. The numbers are so arranged that each row and column as well as the two diagonals add up to 111. 1, p. 258). It is antichrist because it denies Jesus because it denies He is truly the literal Son of God who came in the flesh. I have seen non-Trinitarians falsely accused of teaching that Christ was created as a means to discredit them. This system of Satan worship was a mystery religion and explains the meaning of the word mystery in Revelation 17:5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” See who is mystery Babylon the great. Paganism entered the Church at Rome during the early centuries, including the heathen teachings about God. So Arius who studied under the Biblical teachings of Lucian of Antioch who was opposed to Greek philosophy is almost certainly the one who had Biblical truth and was deliberately discredited just as Trinitarians do to non-Trinitarians today. Publications.) Was He man? The Trinity doctrine is not unique to, nor original with, Christianity. But this justification doesn't really help the case for the emperor's conversion being genuine. It produces confusion rather than clarification; and while the problems with which it deals are real ones, the solutions it offers are not illuminating. He taught there would be no physical resurrection of the believers.” — (See Dr. Ken Matto, Origen's Gnostic Belief System). "The origin of the [Trinity] is entirely pagan." . For fifty years after St. Paul's life a curtain hangs over the church, through which we strive vainly to look; and when at last it rises, about 120 A.D. with the writings of the earliest church fathers, we find a church in many aspects very different from that in the days of St. Peter and St. Paul.” — (The Story of the Christian Church, 1970, p. 33), This “very different” Church would grow in power and influence, and within a few short centuries would come to dominate even the mighty Roman Empire! So this was the setting in which the doctrine of the trinity emerged. Ever since the inception of the Trinity doctrine into Christianity in the 4th century, in one way or another, Trinitarians have consistently persecuted those who did not hold to the trinity faith. 3, p. 297), The council adopted a statement that translates into English as, in part, “We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages ... And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets ...” The statement also affirmed belief “in one holy, catholic [meaning in this context universal, whole or complete] and apostolic Church ...”. No pagan religion ever taught any doctrine that even resembles the doctrine of the Trinity except in the most superficial manner. Semiramis demanded worship for both her husband and her son as well as herself. This information helps us see and unmask the deception Satan is using to deceive the whole world. know that I recognize only one God. If there is no scriptural basis for the doctrine of a triune God, then from whence did this idea come? “That being said, Athanasius is applying these standard arguments to a more highly developed neo-Platonist philosophy and a more cultural diverse society than any previous theologian had faced. ]” — (Benjamin G. Wilkinson, Truth Triumphant, p. 92), “Whether the teachings of Arius were such as are usually represented to us or not, who can say? Origen also made translations and commentaries of the Bible. He recognized the value of religion in uniting his empire. It seems that the world is being trained to accept something and so we need to be very selective in what we watch and expose ourselves to. In fact, there is not even one proof text, if by proof text we mean a verse or passage that 'clearly' states that there is one God who exists in three persons.” — (Basic Theology, p. 89), He goes on to say, “The above illustrations prove the fallacy of concluding that if something is not proof texted in the Bible we cannot clearly teach the results . The Platonic beliefs of “the three Cappadocians” had prevailed. The very first three-in-one trinity was the worship of the three stages of the sun! This true origin of the number 666 is known by very few and once again how Satan wants it as it reveals too much truth on what this number is all about and who God now assigns this number. When the Unitarians in the Watchtower society wish to prove that the Trinity comes from paganism in general, they quote, more often than any other single reference book [i] in their Should You Believe In the Trinity? “Unlike Origen, Athanasius's reputation is unsullied in all major branches of Christendom. 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. “Most Christians assume that Sunday is the biblically approved day of worship. Eusebius and Theognis remained in the Emperor's favour and when Constantine accepted baptism on his deathbed, it was performed by Eusebius of Nicomedia. But in pretending to be wrought upon by the Holy Ghost, and attempting to deceive the apostles, they had lied to the Almighty.” — (E.G. And we can see from history how this has progressed throughout time. The system of Rome adopted the same symbol where you see saints with a halo around their head. The early Christians, however, did not at first think of applying the idea to their own faith. Many who believe in the trinity are surprised to learn that the idea of divine beings existing as trinities or triads long predated Christianity. But anyone who disagreed was in accordance with the edicts of the emperor and Church authorities branded a heretic and dealt with accordingly. Lucian knew that accepting Clement's and Origen's way of interpreting Scripture would change the meaning of Scripture and would result in the truths of the Bible being changed by human reasoning and tradition. 1, 2). The decision as to which view the Church council would accept was to a large extent arbitrary. Pagan pantheons (national families of gods) of the various ethnic gods will be compared, and triads (sets of three gods) in these… Now Satan desired to be worshipped like the most High (Isaiah 14:12-14) and wanted his own day of worship. The word trinity itself is neither biblical nor Christian. Antichrist is not one man such as the pope as wrongly taught today. Still, the influence of Origen is felt throughout the work, particularly in Athanasius' opening statements about the existence (or rather, non-existence) of evil and the refutation of various dualistic cosmologies.” — (Critique of Athanasius Two Books against the Heathens, Jonathan Shelley), There can be no doubt that Athanasius incorporated neo-platonism into his works and was greatly influenced by Plato, Origen and Greek philosophy rather than following the true meaning of Scripture. For example, you can find this symbol in some of the most interesting places. This occurred before there was a final split between the two over authority. These brought with them into the Christian schools of theology their Platonic ideas and phraseology.” — (Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature, 1891, Vol. Because this is where the pagan practices of Babylon landed after it was conquered. These brought with them into the Christian schools of theology their Platonic ideas and phraseology.” — (Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature, 1891, Vol. thesis on the topic.” “More recently, a further question has arisen with increasing urgency: was the pioneers' belief about the Godhead right or wrong? NY: Dodd, 1917. “Rediscovering Original Christian Theology,” Pagan Roots of Trinity Doctrine by Ed Torrence © 2002]. All rights reserved. There were no fewer than fourteen further creed formulas between 340 and 360 A.D. In Greece it was Zeus, Apollo and Athena (top right). 382, 383). Did Ellen White write three holiest beings? During his reign he had his eldest son and his wife murdered. And yet the Bible says, “God is not the author of confusion,” 1 Corinthians 14:33, Satan is. Martin Luther who was the German priest who initiated the Protestant Reformation said, “It is indeed true that the name 'Trinity' is nowhere to be found in the Holy Scriptures, but has been conceived and invented by man.” — (reproduced in The Sermons of Martin Luther, John Lenker, editor, Vol. Was he influenced by Scripture or by the bishops of Rome and Alexandria who were steeped in Greek philosophy? He castrated himself in a lecture in front of his students based on his Gnostic views of the evil of the flesh among other strange practices. By no means are theologians' explanations of the trinity doctrine clear. Did this same thing happen to Arius? Sun worship which was done on Sun-day! The Adventist Church before they accepted the trinity doctrine was as close to Biblical truth as one can ever be and one can learn a lot from them and especially on Bible prophecy. Why? Upon it are based all the other teachings of the church.” — (Handbook for Today's Catholic, p. 11). Though I am not sure what is logical about 1+1+1=One! In Babylon it … - … So how was the trinity doctrine finally established? Without even checking what the Bible says, they put their trust in these misunderstood quotes and never look deeper, or examine her other writings to see what she really meant. “In the hope of securing for his throne the support of the growing body of Christians he had shown them considerable favor and it was to his interest to have the church vigorous and united. This as you have seen includes Arius. The Phoenicians worshipped Ulomus, Ulosuros and Eliun. (Par. So the trinity was not derived from scripture but was conceived in philosophy. With the emperor's approval, the Council rejected the minority view of Arius and, having nothing definitive with which to replace it, approved the view of Athanasius which was also a minority view. He therefore undertook to put an end to the trouble. Greek philosophers were greatly influenced by Greek philosopher Plato (427-347 BC) who was considered the greatest of all philosophers. It was suggested to him, perhaps by the Spanish bishop Hosius, who was influential at court, that if a synod were to meet representing the whole church both east and west, it might be possible to restore harmony. The Reformation, brought about by Martin Luther, threw off the yoke of the Papists and declared justification by faith instead of salvation by obeying the Roman church. Karen Armstrong explains in A History of God, “When the bishops gathered at Nicaea on May 20, 325, to resolve the crisis, very few would have shared Athanasius's view of Christ. Just recently some Adventists are now teaching we should pray to the Holy Spirit. But did you realize that even though it is a common assumption among many sincere Christian people, the word trinity does not appear anywhere in the Bible? But that could not be further from the truth and if we truly love the Lord then we should want to know anyway. No! The three in one trinity doctrine originated from paganism with the worship of the sun and Satan at Babel. Among them was the Council of Sardica in 343 A.D, the Council of Sirmium in 358 A.D. and the double Council of Rimini and Seleucia in 359 A.D. Church historian Socrates Scholasticus (5th century) wrote: “For although almost all churches throughout the world celebrate the sacred mysteries [of the Lord's Supper] on the Sabbath of every week, yet the Christians of Alexandria and at Rome, on account of some ancient tradition, have ceased to do this.” — (Socrates Scholasticus, Ecclesiastical History, Book 5, Ch. 10, “Trinity,” p. 553), The true Church largely resisted such infiltration and held firm to the teaching of the apostles, drawing their doctrine from the writings of the apostles and “the Holy Scriptures [the books of the Old Testament] which are able to make you wise for salvation.” (2 Timothy:3:15). Anu's share was the sky. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:18. In the year May 381 A.D. being 44 years after Constantine's death, Emperor Theodosius convened the Council of Constantinople (today Istanbul, Turkey) to put an end to the disputes. The other gods numbered 3 to 36 were considered the children of the sun god, and included the various stars and constellations that these gods were associated with. And as you have just seen, its roots go back much farther in history. And of course the beast (Papal Rome) that has this number is also called Babylon in Revelation and here is one reason why. Being strongly opposed, Lucian tried to counteract what was happening. While this simple statement of faith had nothing to say about a Trinity, or even hint that Jesus was God, it laid the groundwork for further expansion, and was modified several times over the years. The language they used in describing and defining the trinity is, in fact, taken directly from Platonic and Greek philosophy. So what was the significance of Rome and Alexandria? This became known as the three in one god. The Churches in Rome looked to the famous college at Alexandria for spiritual guidance, while the Syrian's trusted their leaders in Antioch to guide them. When you read inside the cover of the Bible, if it has the triquetra on it, the description there will tell you it is the ancient symbol of the trinity. It also means that God sent Himself into the world, died to reconcile the world to Himself, raised Himself from the dead, ascended to Himself in heaven, pleads before Himself in heaven to reconcile the world to Himself, and is the only mediator between man and Himself. This is called worship by representation. Wells in his noted work The Outline of History stated, “There is no evidence that the apostles of Jesus ever heard of the trinity—at any rate from him.” — (1920, Vol. He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. So as each group travelled it took with them the same concept except they now had different names. That makes a mockery of several hundred verses in the Bible! ", Watchtower publication pictured left. He believed in the doctrine of Purgatory, transubstantiation, transmigration of the soul and reincarnation of the soul. Alexandria had, for more than two centuries before Christ, been the real capital of the Jews who were compromising with paganism.” — (Benjamin G. Wilkinson, Truth Triumphant, p. 47), From the history of the Jewish nation Lucian could see the effect of accepting the Greek education taught in Alexandria. And with this being the case then one might ask, “Who do you worship?”, “The Puranas, one of the Hindoo Bibles of more than 3,000 years ago, contain the following passage: 'O ye three Lords! He also exiled the bishops who signed the creed but refused to join in the condemnation of Arius, Eusebius of Nicomedia and Theognis of Nicea. Old and dying at the end of the day. A symbol of the worship of the devil. We answer the questions - Is the Trinity doctrine in the Bible? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:11 NIV. It did not have material added, removed or modified as did the Minority Text. Here is a brief summary of the pagan origin of the trinity doctrine. See the pagan origins of the trinity doctrine for detailed information. Isa. Not likely! 1, p. 574), Thus we see that the doctrine of the trinity owes far less to the Bible than it does to the metaphysical speculations of Plato and other pagan Greek philosophers. They generally regarded them as heretics and the record of Christian history shows this and it is still happening today! Here is a brief summary of the pagan origin of the trinity doctrine. It was not a logical or intellectual formulation but an imaginative paradigm that confounded reason. It has posed for many Christians dark and mysterious statements, which are ultimately meaningless, because it does not sufficiently discriminate in its use of terms.” — (1958, pp. It would be foolish to represent the doctrine of the Holy Trinity as having been achieved by any other way.” — (1980, p. 172), They then conclude, “This was a long, confused, process whereby different schools of thought in the Church worked out for themselves, and then tried to impose on others, their answer to the question, 'How divine is Jesus Christ?' Bitter battles ensued, and three versions of the trinity debated, as well as the non-trinity belief, until the present one was adopted. Why should we follow something that could never have been taught by the Apostles or the early Church since this was not decided until 400 hundred years after the cross? Constantine, however, in the early fourth century saw a chance to help restore the former glory of the Empire by bringing about religious unity. The Trinity is a pagan concept - Paganism has been masked into Christianity Most Christians struggle trying to explain the ‘Doctrine of the Trinity’ to those of pure monotheistic faith. They had acted from choice. And since he introduced this term, than that means the trinity doctrine as taught today did not exist in the time of Tertullian. But now Constantine faced a new challenge. The Catholic Church are known experts at this. I have very reluctantly quoted mainstream history elsewhere in this document but I think other historical evidence reveals the real truth. “Lucian quickly discerned that there were two movements taking shape in Christendom, one loose in doctrine and affiliating itself with heathenism, the other based on the deep foundations of the Christian faith.” — (Benjamin G. Wilkinson, Truth Triumphant, p. 46). Was He God appearing as a man? The Targum says, “Nimrod became a mighty man of sin, a murderer of innocent men, and a rebel before the Lord.”. . He taught oblations for the dead and made the sign of the cross on the forehead of worshipers. And last is the witches Book of Shadows. 9, p. 91), The preface to historian Edward Gibbons' History of Christianity sums up the Greek influence on the adoption of the trinity doctrine by stating, “If Paganism was conquered by Christianity, it is equally true that Christianity was corrupted by Paganism. But what did such philosophy entail and how did it come to affect the doctrine of the trinity? As shocking as this may be, you will also find this symbol on some editions of the New King James Bible and the New International Version of the Bible. The evolution of this doctrine within Christianity began with The Apostle’s Creed, progressed to the Nicene Creed, and finally culminated in the Athanasian Creed. And that also means that in the garden God prayed to Himself, if it were possible, to let the cup pass from Himself. In February he and Gratian had published an edict that all their subjects should profess the faith of the bishops of Rome and Alexandria (i.e., the Nicene faith), or be handed over for punishment for not doing so. While Ellen White did not use the word trinity, her husband did. When the accusers were corrected, they still continued with their false accusations even though they knew it was not true. Here Paul likens the spirit of man to the Spirit of God. Wikipedia states what Tertullian believed on the Godhead: Tertullian was just a forerunner of the Nicene doctrine and did not state the immanent trinity. So the beginning of Nimrod's plan had its origin at Babel which was later known as Babylon. This is a fact seldom recognized by many modern scholars. But these were written in a way that allowed many errors to be introduced into Christianity. When he taught, he wore the pagan robes of the pagan philosopher. Today a Christian thinker ... has no wish to be precise about it, more especially since the definition is obviously pagan in origin and was not adopted by the Church until nearly three hundred years after Christ.” — (Arthur Weigall, Paganism in Our Christianity, 1928, pp. The bishops that formulated the trinity doctrine were the beginnings of the Papal Church that outlawed Sabbath keeping in favour of Sunday worship that came from sun worship, as well as purgatory and dozens of other unbiblical teachings that have their roots in paganism. We know Athanasius taught the unbiblical pagan view, and that the Catholic Church is known for casting truth to the ground as explained in scripture, so it would certainly make sense that the Arians actually had Biblical truth and explains why these Arian tribes were all destroyed. But this mystery religion was nothing more than Satan worship. So if you believe in the trinity doctrine then you deny the personality of God and His Son which Ellen White says denies God and Christ, which also denies Jesus is the Son of God, which the Apostle John and Ellen White both said is antichrist. Some have the mentality that their Church could never be wrong. The only records we have are those that either fell through the hands of the Catholic power, or those which they have chosen to keep, whether in their original form or altered by them. She told the people that a ray of the sun had come to her and impregnated her with a child and that it was actually Nimrod coming back in a reincarnation of the sun god. Later Greek thinkers refined Plato's concepts into what they referred to as three “substances,” the supreme God or “the One,” from which came “mind” or “thought” and a “spirit” or “soul.” In their thinking, all were different divine “substances” or aspects of the same God.
