Christianity, followers of the Jewish Messiah, that claimed to be God. Jesus that died on a cross was buried and rose again on the third day this is the basis of Christianity. Jesus' final instructions were to preach the good news and to convert and baptize the world. That is not the message I heard in church. I hear a good sermon and finally at the end, the preacher, or song leader or some elder asks those that wish to accept Christ to raise their hand.
Why is it this act is not found anywhere in scripture? Nowhere in the Acts of the apostles does anyone ever utter those words. Instead we find clear commandments of repenting of our sins, being baptized and that we will receive the promise of salvation, the gift of the Holy Spirit.
I was raised baptist, I never heard this before. What was repentence? Baptism? Sorry but no one told me about baptism. The Holy Spirit? What's that? I've heard that baptism is a public show of conversion that already took place in the heart. Why then were all new converts immediatly baptized? And it was rarely a public event. Some were baptized at night Acts 16:33. Or where some water that just happen to on there way Acts 8:33. It was so important that some of John the baptist's deciples were actually re-baptized Acts 19:1-6. It should also be noted that every noted time of baptism according to the book of Acts was always in the name of Jesus Christ and not repeating the phrase: In the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit which seems to be how I remembered it in church every sunday.This also took me as a big surprise. All the apostles were present when Jesus said in MATTHEW 28:19 to baptize in the NAME of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost. But I also noticed he didn't say repeat these words, he said in the NAME OF. This got me to thinking I was a believer in the trinity how could this be so. The church's couldn't be wrong. So I searched and no-where in scripture is there any reference to a holy trinity. So where did this idea come from?
Paganism entered the Christian faith.
The trinity doctrine no matter how it is pedaled and packaged, it is a false doctrine and is a pagan heresy. The trinity doctrine had existed prior to Babylon the great but the trinity doctrine was adopted at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD. The cult that arose in Babylon and spread its cult tentacles throughout the world was trinitarian. The first humanism trinity of record to be setup and worshiped as gods, was that of Nimrod, Simeramus, and Tammuz. Within Nimrod's Mystery Babylon eventually came the philosophy that the trinity was a unity of persons whose perfect agreement upon all things, made them one. They were one in agreement and this mutual consent merged into the idea of the one unity of essence. The trinity in unity doctrine was thus stated in the cult as the one essence or nature of the three. As it relates to Nimrod, Simeramus, and Tammuz, they were one in essence, the essence being identified as human gods.
From ancient time Mystery Babylon has tried to make God what he is not. The Jews would have never dreamed of their being more than one God. They were prohibited by the first Commandment of having a pluralistic concept or view. It was from within this revelation, in contradiction to the surrounding religions of Pagan trinitarians, that Israel worship the One LORD of the Old Testament, Hear O Israel, the LORD our GOD is ONE LORD.
The doctrinal position formulated at Nicaea was that if a theory does not conform to the Scriptures, then the Scriptures must be reinterpreted to conform to the theory.
Theory was then based upon spiritualizing or bending toward mysticism and philosophy for its support of the great Mystery of Babylon and say only that the trinity is a great MYSTERY that no one can understand. The world is deceived to believe the trinity should be left to mystics and philosophers to interpret, exactly as they did in ancient Mystery Babylon.
The next hammer to drop is to inhibit the human mind from examining the theory, by claiming no one can understand it, it must be accepted by faith. Could your church be a daughter of mystery Babylon.
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
The bible is clear about the diety of Christ. Jesus is the son of God and in fact God manifest in flesh, He is a man and yet fully God. He is the Holy Spirit. I know that in some people's mind this is a trinity, three in one. But it's not, it's three manifestations of one God, three titles, three positions. Not three persons. God is not a multi-personality. He is one being. You also are one being, being body, soul, and spirit. I am a father, I am a son, I have a spirit, but I am not three distint personalities, but one. There is one name given under heaven by which we must be saved.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
That name is JESUS (ACTS 2:38)
"There is no evidence the Apostles of Jesus ever heard of a trinity [H. G. Wells, Outline of History, 1920 Edition, p 499]."
I do not expect this one to go over well. I mean no offense to anyone, just truth. I do not wish to lose friends, or love, or liberty but It feels like fire shut up in my bones JEREMIAH 20:9, I can no longer keep my peace.
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
