Jehovah`s Witness/On with the message.
Well, since I've already said what I needed to say and fully showed and illustrated the motives of those who are opposed to us - Jehovah's Witnesses, thus there's nothing more to say about them (people).
So on with the subject and the truth.
Why is the Trinity doctrine a detestable doctrine?
Have you ever thought of that question?
Probably not, and so did I (when I was a Catholic). But upon learning the truth of its origin and what it really is - a Mystery Doctrine, then I came to realized that it must not have come from God. And the more I studied it and looked at it, the more it became clear to me why it should be abandoned. It must be abandoned for the simple reason that...
... (for one) it hides the truth about our Loving God Jehovah!
It hides the truth and the fact that He, Jehovah God ALONE is the ONLY True Living God.
As the Scripture states, God says:
...I am Jehovah, and there is no one else. There is no God except me... (Isaiah 45:5)
Know, therefore, on this day, and take it to heart that Jehovah is the true God in the heavens above and on the earth beneath. There is no other. (Deuteronomy 4:39)
You yourselves have been shown these things so you will know that Jehovah is the true God; there is no other besides him. (Deuteronomy 4:35)
I am Jehovah, and there is no one else. There is no God except me. I will strengthen you, although you did not know me, In order that people may know From the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides me. I am Jehovah, and there is no one else. (Isaiah 45:5, 6)
. . .May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth. (Psalm 83:18)
Thus, the Trinity doctrine contradicts the scriptures above and hides these facts for it claims that the Father is God, the Son is God and the Holy Spirit is God and that they are not Three Gods but one God - equal in majesty, power and eternity. And no Trinitarian past, present and future however knowledgeable or sophisticated he / she is will be able to fully and satisfactorily explain it! NO ONE, not one can fully explain as to why or as to how it is that way.
It's because of this undeniable fact - it's a mystery. Try if you may, try if they may, they just can't explain a Mysterious doctrine such as the Trinity doctrine. They just can't!
But why a mystery and a confusing one at that?
Simple, because it's a concept, a theory and an idea based on human philosophy of many years of discussions and many years of philosophizing by many differing philosophical minds (of differing backgrounds).
It's an amalgamation of an imperfect conflicting human philosophical ideas inspired by no other than the enemy of God, satan the devil the father of lie.
Thus, it's unexplainable - a mystery.
But above all, it's was put together by (knowingly or unknowingly) twisting and misapplication of the Scriptures. It was brought forth by inference based on assumptions as if it's a "matter of fact".
Case in point as quoted from a post of one of the Trinitarians here on this forum.
He makes the claim:
>>"...The Scriptures testify that He [Jesus] is the Creator of all things (John 1:3, Colossians 1:15-17), therefore, making Him God Almighty, as is His Father."<<
But when compared with just a few scriptures such as the ones mentioned above or with Jesus' words at Matthew 19:4, or with Gen 1:27 and Rev 4:11, it falls flat on its face.
"In reply he said: Have you not read that the one who created them from the beginning made them male and female" -- Mat 19:4
"And God went on to create the man in his image, in Gods image he created him; male and female he created them." -- Gen 1:27
Further confirming what we've known already that it indeed hides the truth and the fact that Jehovah God alone is the ONLY True God, the ONLY ONE to be worshiped!!!
And as commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ, with his own words and NOT by mere conjecture or implication, he categorically said:
. . .it is written: It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service. (Matthew 4:10)
. . .You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, ..., the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for indeed, the Father is looking for ones like these to worship him. God is a Spirit, and those worshipping him must worship with spirit and truth. (John 4:22-24)
What more can be clearer than these? Hence Worship ONLY Jehovah, the only true God, the Almighty God! Not the trinity godhead.
But again the Trinity doctrine hides these facts as it claims that the Father is God, the Son is God and the Holy Spirit is God and that they are not Three Gods but one God - equal in majesty, power and eternity.
Or as the Catholic Faith confesses:
. . . 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 also there are not three incomprehensibles, nor three uncreated, but one uncreated, and one incomprehensible." -- Athanasian Creed.
Or as confessed by other Trinitarians:
<<"...we worship Jesus Christ to the glory of God the Father">>
Thus this doctrine makes a mockery of God's Sovereignty and His Almightiness as the doctrine makes Him a Mysterious Three Person Godhead of equal power, majesty and eternity and worshiped as one God. It also makes God unknowable as it hides the truth about the true living God, Jesus Christ the son of the Living God and the holy spirit - God's active force.
So what else to say?
None I guess!
But if one will still insist to worship God in a Trinitarian fashion then one needs to consider the above scriptures and see if they agree with the doctrine. One needs to consider them without any mental gymnastics and word manipulation and equivocation.
. . .For God is a God not of disorder but of peace.. . . (1 Corinthians 14:33)
In addition, an answer to the following questions (asked by Brother Rando and others).
Who is the Great I am in this Trinitarian Godhead?
Is it God the Father?
Is it the purported God the Son?
Or is the purported nameless God the Holy Spirit?
Is it all three Gods or just one God?
If you say One is the I am, who then and why is he / it the I am?
If it's this purported God the Son, whose will did he do then when he was sent to earth?
If you can't clearly and satisfactorily answer these very basic and simple questions based on the Scriptures, then you've been taught a lie that is detestable to Jehovah the Living God.
As to my understanding of this doctrine, yes I fully understand that it's a Mystery doctrine, and that NO ONE can fully and satisfactorily explain it. Yes, I fully understand that it's a man-made idea, a theory and a concept based on many years of human philosophy and scripture manipulation, misapplication and word equivocation. Not one of the Trinitarians fully knows what it is or how it really works.
So with this understanding of this mysterious doctrine with its confusing and conflicting ideas and theories and concepts what then can we say?
Is it from God or it from someone/somewhere else?
To say that it's from God is beyond amazing and common sense and logic and above all beyond Scripture FOR as the Scripture again testify..
. . .For God is a God not of disorder but of peace.. . . (1 Corinthians 14:33)
But if you do really understand it, then by all means, please explain how does this Trinity doctrine honor the True Living God Jehovah?
