If we consider all the scriptures that we have read so far then we must conclude that the Trinity is not only an inadequate way to describe God, but is actually a false doctrine designed to take our eyes off scripture and to place our trust in man-made creeds.
Similar to the Theory of Evolution, the doctrine of the Trinity is based mainly on imagination and its propenents desperately cling to any evidence or scripture that has the slightest possibility of backing up their thoughts. But in doing so they stray from truth and change the truth of God into a lie.
The nature of Man will always make idols in the place of God, because the carnal nature can never come into subjection to the will of God. A representation of God made by hands must start as an image in the mind and this is what the Trinity doctrine is, an idol created in the mind of man that has actually been made into idols made of wood, stone etc. It’s pride in the intellect of certain individuals who have lead many astray by laying a stumbling block. This doctrine doesn’t even claim inspiration as far as I know, yet the scriptures do. Strangest thing of all is that you can contradict scripture, but if you contradict a creed then you are a Heretic, (punishable by death during the dark ages). Many don’t realize that their actions are trying to bring back this darkness.
Trinitarians argue that the Trinity has always been taught by the Church and there was never a time that it was not. Of course they would say this, otherwise they would have to admit that it was an addition and therefore not a biblical doctrine nor a foundational one. But if the Trinity doctrine is not taught in scripture, then it is an addition. Now according to history, the original Nicean Creed included only the Father and Son. The Holy Spirit was added in decades later. So it seems clear that the theology was never always taught as they say, rather it developed over time and changed over time.
e.g., in Encarta it says the following:
A theology of the Holy Spirit developed slowly, largely in response to controversies over the relation of Jesus Christ to God the Father. In 325, the Council of Nicaea condemned as heresy the Arian teaching that the Son was a creature, neither equal to, nor coeternal with, the Father. ………Later pronouncements brought only one important doctrinal change, the 9th-century addition of filioque to the creed of Constantinople. That addition, that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the son, has been a source of discord between Eastern and Western Christianity ever since.

The only way that we can perhaps try to understand the Trinity doctrine is to say as they say, that God is one nature/substance and then we must assume that this nature/substance spawns 3 personalities. That is the only conclusion if God has 3 personalities and is one substance. This idea is ridiculous of course as it assumes that nature is greater than identity and identity is a manifestation of the nature rather than nature being a manifestation of the identity. This idea leans toward a New Age concept of God as being a force of some kind, even if this supposed force manifests 3 consciences and creates many others. But God is a personal identity and is known as his/him/he etc. God is not an organisation or substanc and neither is God a thing or an it.
Trinitarians deny that God is a person/identity, they say that he is a collective or substance or organisation made up of 3 personalities. But the scriptures teach that God is an identity and shares his nature with his son and even his sons. God is one identity, not 3 identites. God is a him and we refer to God as a ‘him’, not as ‘they’.
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
In scripture, we are clearly shown that the Father is the most High God and he is God to everyone and everything. Next we have Jesus the Word of God, and He is God or more descriptively Lord of everything but his Father and God. Furthermore, we have man or the sons of God, but we are not God to the Father or Son that is obvious, but we are lords to the animals and of the Earth. Remember we will rule and reign with Jesus, and Jesus will rule and reign with his Father. We have to respect this divine order. God is not a creature that we can shape or analyze. He is, and we can only accept him or reject him. He is beyond our thinking and the only clues to what God is like is revealed in his creation, by Jesus Christ and God’s Spirit.
The Trinity teaches that God is made up of 3 equal personalities, the Father the Son & The Holy Spirit, and each has existed for all eternity together. But the scriptures teach that Man came from Christ and Christ came from God, yet we (men) are also god (theos) & (elohim). Paul teaches us that there are many Gods, yet for us there is One God the Father. It is the Father who is the Most High God and Jesus the Christ is the Word of God. Man was created to be God like. Again it is our Heavenly Father who is the most High God and Jesus Christ (Yeshua) and us (mankind) have the nature of God and we are gods.
So the Divine order is the Father, then the Son of God, and then the Sons of God. We are the offspring of God. Therefore like any offspring, we will become like our parents. I.e. Christ like and ultimately God like. See Acts 17:29
“Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image made by man’s design and skill.
The Father created all things in the beginning, but through Christ. The Father also saved us through his Son.
And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
We abide in the Father through his Son. 1John 2:23-24 says.
23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.
We do all things for God through the Son according to 1 Corinthians 8:6
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.
Our Father will always be our Father, yet Jesus will call us brothers. See Hebrews 2:11
Jesus Christ is God’s firstborn, he was given birth as the Wisdom of God. He came from God and creation came through him, he is the Word of God. Creation is that which was made by God through the Word. This of course excludes Jesus because he is the Word, rather Jesus was begotten not created, yet God loved us to the degree that he gave his only begotten Son, so we can have eternal life. God made all things through him and for him and God also redeemed us through him .
We must believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. This is essential if you are to be part of the true Church. It is not a requirement to believe that Jesus is the most High God as some say, but rather that he is the Son of God. Jesus is the Mediator between his Father and our Father & his God and our God.
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.
Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has gathered up the wind in the hollow of his hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in his cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and the name of his son? Tell me if you know!
Jesus was the Son of God, is the Son of God, and will be the only begotten Son of God forever. Take note of the following:
For when God made a promise to Abrahm, because he could swear by no one greater, he swore by himself.
for men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath.
And inasmuch as he was not made priest without an oath (for they have become priests without an oath , but he with an oath by him who said to him: “The LORD has sworn and will not relent, ‘you are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
When God could find no greater to swear by he swore by himself…this was with Abraham. But he also did this in an oath concerning Jesus as High Priest. Also, when Jesus taught us not to swear, he made it clear that ultimately, it is the Father we offend. So God did not swear by Jesus, but by, in his view, the highest authority, which was himself.
Now many who believe in the Trinity say that it is a foundational doctrine, in other words they say that you must believe in the Trinity and that Jesus is God in order to be saved. Of course this means that most do not consider this doctrine an optional opinion, rather a/the foundation. Trinitarians will try and tell you that you must believe that Jesus is God in order to be saved. But that is another gospel, the truth is that Jesus Christ (Yeshua) is the Son of God. This confession is the foundation off the Church.
The Trinity Doctrine is the foundation of the Harlot Churches which are built on this false foundation. This Harlot Church is responsible not only for much false doctrine, but also the death and persecution of tens of millions of people. Now I am not saying that those who believe in the Trinity are not children of God, rather I am just saying that such a person is participating or building on a false foundation and they need to repent. The words “Come out of her my people” are appropriate here. I usually refer to this false foundation and it’s constructions as Christian City, but we should be looking for the Celestial City, the one made without human hands. Most of these denominations are built on top of creeds, they are their foundation. Most Church members have to agree to that creedal statement before they can be truly considered a member. Most Creeds are based on the Trinity doctrine and it is interesting to note that trinities are worshipped in many pagan religions as far back as Babylon itself. Most Trinitarians believe the Trinity doctrine by faith first, then they learn and use certain scripture to back up their belief later. How many people do you know who start with no bias and just read the scriptures and based their theology on what God reveals to them, with no interference of any Creed? We can prove just about anything by starting of with a statement and then taking a scripture here and there. But how many of us read scripture and let that paint the true picture, rather than reading scripture in the light of Creeds that become the template in which scripture must fit.
So which foundation will you build on?
The Trinity doctrine or the one in Matthew 16:13-18
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, 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.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!
