which I hate !

But I declare unto you even as the Apostle Paul

"For there is ONE GOD, and one mediator between God and men,
the MAN Messiah/Christ Yeshua/Jesus"  1 Tim. 2:5; Thus writes the apostle.......'though there be many lords and many gods.....unto us WHO BELIEVE there is but ONE GOD even the FATHER and one Lord Yeshua'


The history of Biblical record (as far as man's notions I believe;) has always been one of degeneration from the originally revealed 'henotheism' (ELOHIM) (at least 2) Genesis 1:1; to various forms of polytheism and also monotheism. "Christianity," as popularly known, has been no exception. I do NOT believe that 'monotheism' was the original belief at all, but rather one of plurality of 'gods' as evidenced in the word 'ELOHIM' yet those 'gods' are 'ONE' in unity, so that there is 'ONE ELOHIM'. ELOHIM created 'man in his image, male and female created he THEM,' and when they are joined in flesh they become ONE FLESH and are NO LONGER 'twain.' THIS I believe explains in some way how ELOHIM is indeed 'plural' yet ONE. THIS also explains how JOHN 1:1; (I believe) is speaking of 'ELOHIM' when it speaks of the LOGOS being 'with' the 'FATHER'; John 1:1 is speaking of DUAL 'gods' ie: the logos and the Father, and the 'logos' who is 'theos' = (god) became flesh.

The Bible, in both Old and New Testaments, is very emphatic about the absolute oneness of God. When asked

Yeshua/Jesus answered (Mark 12:29)

He was quoting from the words of Moses in Deut. 6:4. This is the consistent story of the Bible. There is not a word about three gods in it from the beginning to the end.

NOTE: Deut.6:4 along with EXODUS 20:3; which we call the first of the Decalogue, yet Yeshua cites Deut 6:4 as the "first of all the commandments" The two commands fit together as a hand in a glove, and both CONDEMN any 'trinity' of 'gods'

"Christendom" today has degenerated to a belief in four gods, three good ones and one evil one. Some parts of Christendom have five gods, as the Roman Catholic Church, which has added a "Mother of God" who is in their system of belief the supreme deity beside a host of demi-gods, one for every day of the year (and more), all of which mythical and man-invented deities are worshipped and prayed to.

The doctrine of the Trinity is this (accursed thing)

"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 co-eternal. Such as the Father is, so 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 there are not three eternals, but one eternal. Also there are not three incomprehensibles, not three uncreated: but one uncreated, and one incomprehensible.
So likewise the Father is Almighty, the Son Almighty, and the Holy Ghost Almighty. And yet there are not three Almighties, but one Almighty.
So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet there are not three Gods: but one God.
So likewise the Father is Lord, the Son Lord, and the Holy Ghost Lord. And yet not three Lords but one Lord.
For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge every person by himself to be God and Lord; so we are forbidden by the Catholic religion to say There be three Gods, or three Lords.
The Father is made of none; neither created, nor begotten. The Son is of the Father alone: not made, nor created, but begotten. The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son: neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.
So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts.
And in this Trinity none is afore, or after other, none is greater or less than others; but the whole three persons are co-eternal together; and co-equal. So that in all things, as is aforesaid: the Unity in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity is to be worshipped. HE THEREFORE THAT WILL BE SAVED MUST THUS THINK OF THE TRINITY."

This is the prize and tragic example of the natural mind of man speculating upon divine things rather than being content to humbly accept the simple testimony of Scripture. This 'trinity' is of the notions of philosophy and principles (idolatries) of the world; Paul wrote this warning to the church at Colosse; "Beware lest any man mislead you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the teachings of men, after the principles of the world, and not after Christ" Colossians 2:8.

In all Scripture, there is nothing to justify this absurd and self-contradictory mizmaze. While truly we can never hope with mortal minds to comprehend God, still the revelations He gives of Himself, and of His Son, and of His Holy Spirit - His power and presence which fills all immensity and works His will - is clear and simple and reasonable and a tremendously satisfying relief from the befuddled speculations as quoted above.

The doctrine of the "Trinity" is nowhere found in the Bible.

Let us now turn to that book of great darkness, which binds the souls of men and keeps them from the 'light of life' John 8:12; I speak of that great book of damnation the THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, first published June 1994. We read these infamous words at item 251, page 66; 'In order to articualte the dogma of the trinity, the Church had to develop its own terminology with the help of certain notions of philosophical origin; "substance," "person," "hypostases," "relation," and so on.'

Even the word trinity does NOT appear once in scripture nor in any Apostolic writing. WHAT WICKEDNESS, WHAT DAMNATION, that PHILOSOPHY should ever be resorted to, rather than the light of the indwelling CHRIST ! and the teaching of the unction of the HOLY SPIRIT !!! Such is the end of replacing the teachings of the Apostles with that of philosophers.
