Doctrine of the Trinity and Salvation
The fact is that the majority of professed Trinitarians have absolutely no idea what the Trinity doctrine is. And so needless to say, most Christians also have no idea that the doctrine of the Trinity is the biggest salvation issue of all.
When many find out what the Trinity doctrine is, they often say, “That is not what I believe!”
If you do not believe the facts that are stated below, then you are not a Trinitarian anyway. And if what you follow differs from what is explained below, then it is not the doctrine of the Trinity.
It does not matter whether it be the SDA Church or any other Church. There is only ONE Trinity doctrine and it does not come in different flavours.
The Trinity doctrine says there are THREE LITERAL GODS that are equal in every way and that all THREE gods have always existed. So THREE gods that are co-equal and co-eternal in other words.
But now we have a SERIOUS problem because the Bible says there is only ONE God.
In the passage of Mark 12:28-34, “one of the scribes came” to Jesus and “asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?” (v. 28) “Jesus answered, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart...” (v. 29, 30) Note Jesus quotes Deuteronomy 6:4. “The scribe said unto him, Well, Master, you have said the truth: for THERE IS ONE GOD; and there is none other but he:” (v. 32) How did Jesus respond to the Scribe? Did He tell Him that he was wrong? To the contrary, “And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly (wisely), he said unto him, You are not far from the kingdom of God.” (v. 34)
Our adversary of course had a way around this problem. Satan via the Catholic Church says NO PROBLEM…I have just the answer to keep all deceived. We will teach that all THREE GODS are really only ONE GOD!
1 + 1 + 1 = 1 !
THREE LITERAL GODS that are not really 3 GODS but 1 GOD. Make sense? No! Why should it? It was made up by Satan via the Catholic Church so Satan could get worship and have Christians deny the Father and Son and not even know it.
Satan HATES the SON OF GOD and wants us to deny Him. Not only that, but we can only be saved by confessing that Jesus is the Son of God. So how does the Trinity doctrine deny the Father and Son and give worship to Satan?
If they are 3 gods that have ALWAYS existed, Jesus cannot really be a SON and therefore God cannot really be a FATHER.
And so the Bible now has hundreds of lies! More unmistakable Scriptures are denied then any other doctrine EVER ! And yet people just go on blindly believing that it is right. Like lambs to the slaughter as they say.
So God is not the Father of Christ and Christ is not the Son of God says the Trinity doctrine!
Every Scripture that says Jesus is the Son of God is now a lie. Every Scripture that says God is the Father is now a lie. How many Scriptures suddenly become a lie?....“HUNDREDS!”
The Bible says Jesus was God's Son before He came to Earth. The Trinity doctrine says No!
The Bible says Jesus is the Son of God. The Trinity doctrine says No! He is just ROLE PLAYING.
The Bible says God is the Father of Christ. The Trinity doctrine says No! He is just ROLE PLAYING.
Where is there ONE Scripture that even hints they are not really a Father and Son and that they are ROLE PLAYING?
IT DOES NOT EXIST !
The Bible says the Holy Spirit is the “Spirit OF God” or the “Spirit OF the Father.” The Trinity doctrine says No! It claims it is something called “god the spirit” which has a different meaning and does NOT exist in Scripture but came from antichrist !
So instead of the Holy Spirit being the SPIRIT OF THE FATHER, it is now some third god called “god the spirit.”
And if “god the spirit” is Satan's idea and his creation…what spirit do you have in you? And what spirit do you give your adoration to? And what spirit do you worship or pray to for those who are now doing that also?
It will be SATAN !
Christians need to wake up before it is too late.
The extract below is from a mainstream SDA book. Adventist Woodrow Whidden says that expressions such as “Father,” “Son,” “Firstborn,” “Only Begotten,” “Begotten,” “the only true God” and “one God the Father” are just figurative and metaphorical. Now where is there even a hint in Scripture that this is so?
“Is it not quite apparent that the problem texts become problems only when one assumes an exclusively literalistic interpretation of such expressions as “Father,” “Son,” “Firstborn,” “Only Begotten,” “Begotten,” and so forth? Does not such literalism go against the mainly figurative or metaphorical meaning that the Bible writers use when referring to the persons of the Godhead? Can one really say that the Bible writers meant such expressions as “the only true God” and “one God the Father”…” — (Woodrow Whidden, The Trinity, p. 106, 2002)
So we find already that the doctrine of the Trinity has very serious problems and many implications that affect our salvation that most never stop to think about.
Since the Trinity doctrine claims Jesus is also the one God, an Adventist author from the 1800's wrote,
“To believe that doctrine, when reading the scripture we must believe 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… We must believe also that in the garden God prayed to Himself, if it were possible, to let the cup pass from Himself, and a thousand other such absurdities.” — (J.N. Loughborough)
Some of those other absurdities it teaches is that Jesus is the immortal God but died,
is the invisible God but was seen,
is the omnipotent God but was strengthened by an angel,
is the omniscient God but did not know the day of his return,
is as great as His Father but His Father is greater than He,
is equal with the Father and yet He is the Father,
is the Son but the same age as the Father,
is the Son who has a Father and the God who has no Father,
is the begotten Son and the unbegotten God,
is very God and very man, came out from Himself,
prayed to Himself, gave power to Himself,
thanked Himself, bore witness of Himself,
went back to Himself,
sits at the right hand of Himself,
is His own Father and His own Son,
left Heaven and yet was there all the time.
There are many things which are hard to understand in the Bible but you can be sure that God never expects us to believe impossibilities.
Over and over again you hear it said that the Gospel is so simple a child can understand it. And I agree. But how can that be the case with the teaching of the Trinity? Not only do children not understand it, but our best theologians cannot even explain it. However, the thought that God sent His Son to this earth to die for you and me is easy to comprehend when we believe the simple Bible statement that Jesus is truly the Son of God! Not one of three mysterious beings making up “one God.”
How can you possibly believe that Jesus is NOT the begotten Son of the eternal Father and share John 3:16 with others in the hope of inviting them to take part in eternal salvation. Doesn't John 3:16 become a lie the moment you deny He is a Son?
A metaphor did not send a metaphor to save us. A Father sent us His Son to save us.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
2 John 1:3 “Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.”
Who Receives the Worship with the Trinity Doctrine?
When Christians are asked if they believe in the trinity, they often say yes without even knowing exactly what it is. And most also say that it does not really matter anyway as it is not a salvation issue. But that could not be further from the truth and if we truly love the Lord then we should want to know anyway. As seen earlier, John called those teaching that all three are one were antichrist. Are those John calls antichrist saved? Not likely!
Many serious problems arise from not knowing as we have seen already, but the following is one of the worst. Seventh day Adventists are most easily misled here because when informed of the truth, they typically turn to the internet where they eventually find a handful of easily misunderstood quotes by Ellen White, which were compiled by LeRoy Froom with the deliberate intent to deceive. 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. Some have the mentality that their Church could never be wrong. What a tragic mistake.
Reading Revelation chapters 13 and 14 we find that the mark of the beast is about who we worship. Isaiah 14:12-14 says that Satan desires to be worshipped as God. But if Satan asked you to worship him, would you do it? Of course not. And Satan of course knows this. So Satan gets himself a front man and props him up so when they are worshipped, he receives worship by proxy. This is called worship by representation. There are two ways Satan does this with Christians and both come from sun worship, which as you have already seen is really the worship of Satan.
The first way is through Sunday worship. For those who are unaware, Scripture informs us that the Lord's Sabbath is a sign that it is God whom we worship and God who sanctifies us when we keep His Seventh day Holy. Revelation 13:2 says Satan gave his power, throne and great authority to the first beast which is the Papal Church system. So when this beast power is being worshipped, who is really being worshipped? Satan himself! So where does worship come into this? By Satan through the Catholic Church implementing his own day of worship being Sunday. That is, Sunday worship that evolved from sun worship.
The second way is by worship of the Holy Spirit as a non-existent literal being, and so Satan steps in to receive this worship by representation once again. This was something he put in place a long time ago in 381 A.D. The Bible never teaches that the Holy Spirit is God or that the Holy Spirit should be prayed to or worshipped, and yet the Catholic Church does this. Today there are more and more from other denominations now doing the same.
Just recently even some Adventists are now teaching we should pray to the Holy Spirit. Yet we are only supposed to worship God through His Son. Jerry Moon from the Seventh day Adventist theological seminary, who is one of the authors of the book The Trinity, first says in this book:
“In the spirit of the pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist church, the authors of this book firmly hold the following conviction: if we cannot support any teaching biblically, we do not want it.” — (The Trinity, p. 10)
“We will be very candid with our readers--if it is not biblical we do not want it, even if the vast majority of authorities in the religious world endorse it (including Adventist pioneers and the theologians of 'Babylon').” — (The Trinity, p.11)
Considering the last bracketed statement, why is there a triquetra on the front cover and even worse, with three fiery rings? What do they represent? The theologians of Babylon of course are the pagan sun worshippers, where astrology originated from!
Next we have an interesting confession that we see many times from other writers and historians:
“The only way for the pioneers in their context to effectively separate Scripture from tradition was to abandon every doctrine not clearly supported from the Bible alone. Thus they initially rejected the traditional doctrine of the Trinity, which clearly contained elements not evident in Scripture.” — (The Trinity, p. 202)
So the authors say that “IF IT IS NOT BIBLICAL WE DO NOT WANT IT” as they clearly state more than once. And yet below they say that even if there is no Biblical support for it, as long as it seems logical it is okay! Reading on:
“But what about direct PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT? While we have NO CLEAR EXAMPLE of or direct command to pray to the Spirit in Scripture, doing so does have, in principle, some implicit biblical support. ... it only seems logical that God's people can pray directly to and worship the Holy Spirit.” — (The Trinity, pp. 272, 273, Emphasis)
Wow! Did you get that? What happened to “IF IT IS NOT BIBLICAL WE DO NOT WANT IT!”
Is this one reason that the Trinity doctrine is now accepted by so many Churches? Even if it is not evident in Scripture, as long as it seems logical then it is okay. Though I am not sure what is logical about 1+1+1=One.
Why is the Trinity a Salvation Issue?
It should be quite obvious to the wise many reason why this is a salvation issue and what Satan's plan was from the beginning. Those who have not studied the doctrine of the Trinity never see it as a salvation issue because they do not understand exactly what it entails and the many implications.
As we saw earlier, the Trinity doctrine claims that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three co-equal, co-eternal gods that are not three gods but one god. But how can Jesus be the literal Son of God if He has always existed alongside the Father? And how can the Father be a Father if Jesus is not really His Son? Hence the Trinity doctrine and other similar beliefs like Unitarians deny that Jesus is the literal Son of God in one way or another.
If you do not confess Jesus is the Son of God then you are separated from God. And if you do not believe Jesus is the Son of God and that God gave His literal Son then you make God a liar and you do not have eternal life.
“Whosoever shall CONFESS THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” 1 John 4:15
“Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that BELIEVETH THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD?” 1 John 5:5
“He that believeth on the Son of God has the witness in himself: he that believeth not God has made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life.” 1 John 5:10-12
“But these are written, that you might believe THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD; and that believing YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE THROUGH HIS NAME.” John 20:31
Thus it is only by acknowledging that Jesus is the Son of God that we can be saved and have access to the Father. And if you deny Jesus is the literal Son of God then it is also impossible for God to be a literal Father. So it denies both the Father and the Son which is what John called antichrist as it opposes Christ being the true and literal Son of God. It denies that it was the literal Son of God that came in the flesh and died on the cross. (1 John 2:18-19, 22-23; 4:3; 2 John 1:7)
The Bible reveals over and over again that they are a real Father and Son. But the Trinity doctrine says no. Some today including Adventist Pastors when asked is Jesus the Son of God reply, No! They say He is just the one God playing the role of the Son. Yet nowhere is there even so much as a hint in Scripture that they are just role playing or are not really a Father and Son. God brought forth a Son whom He loves very much and Satan is working very hard to hide this fact.
And if the Trinity doctrine is wrong, the Holy Spirit is really a creation of Satan rather than the Spirit of the Father and Son. Does it matter if we give our adoration to a creation of Satan rather than the Spirit of the Father and Son? The answer is obvious. Scripture says Satan wants to be worshipped like the most high God. Has he succeeded in accomplishing his goal of being included as deity? More and more today are praying and worshipping the Holy Spirit which the Bible never tells us to do. If the Holy Spirit is not a third being then what spirit would we have as per our belief and who would we be giving our adoration to? And if we believe the Holy Spirit can be worshipped and prayed to just like the Father and the Son, who receives our worship? It goes to Satan! Do you think the Father and Son will mind?
Does it matter if we choose a non–existent god that is a creation of Satan to be the Holy Spirit so he can get worship and have us deny the real Holy Spirit? In other words, does it matter if we have the Spirit of the Father and Son or a creation of Satan and hence reject the real Holy Spirit? It should be obvious that if you get this wrong you will not be in the kingdom!
Revelation 13:17 states, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the Mark, OR the Name of the Beast, OR the Number of his Name.”
Did you notice that it is three things? It is not just the mark of the beast, but also the name and the number of his name which is 666. The pagan origins of the trinity reveals that 666 comes from the Trinity doctrine and sun and Satan worship!
The Catholic Church says, “The mystery of the trinity is the central doctrine of the Catholic faith. Upon it are based all the other teachings of the church.” — (Handbook for Today's Catholic, p. 11)
So this doctrine is essential for unification of all Churches under Rome. As Roman Catholic Graham Greene wrote, “Our opponents sometimes claim that no belief should be held dogmatically which is not explicitly stated in scripture . . . But the Protestant Churches have themselves accepted such dogmas, as the Trinity, for which there is no such precise authority in the Gospels,” — (Assumption of Mary, Life magazine, October 30, 1950, p. 51)
So the Catholic Church says that all their other teachings are based upon the doctrine of the trinity. This means that all the doctrines held by the Papal Church have their basis in the doctrine of the Trinity.
Furthermore, Sunday is a day dedicated to the Trinity.
“Q. What is Sunday, or the Lord's Day in general?
A. It is a day dedicated by the Apostles to the honour of the most holy Trinity, and in memory that Christ our Lord arose from the dead upon Sunday, sent down the holy Ghost on a Sunday, &c. and therefore is called the Lord's Day. It is also called Sunday from the old Roman denomination of Dies Solis, the day of the sun, to which it was sacred.” — (The Douay Catechism of 1649, p. 143)
An interesting statement considering “Sunday worship” and the “Trinity doctrine” both came from sun and Satan worship in Babylon, and they were both brought into Christendom by the Catholic Church whom God calls Babylon! They are also both about who we worship which Revelation 13 and 14 reveals is exactly what the mark of the beast issue is all about. So do we worship the one true God on His Holy day or the pagan Catholic 3 in 1 god? And what about the Seal of God. Which God do we need to be sealed by? The one true God the Father or the pagan Catholic 3 in 1 god. This would certainly explain why Revelation reveals so many will still be deceived and perish in the end.
Satan hates the Son of God and wants us to deny Him, but not just for his own gratification. When this topic is fully understood, it becomes blatantly obvious that the Trinity doctrine is the work of Satan via the Catholic Church to steal our salvation.
