Disclaimer :

Disclaimer The following material may be sensitive to some readers. The intention of this paper is to educate my brothers and sisters and not to insult anyone or any religion.

The Purpose, The Truth:

The Purpose, The Truth There are many views on how to worship God, but logic tells us that God has chosen a particular way for us to worship him. He has chosen the best people of all time and has given them Prophet Hood. God has chosen these Prophets to declare Gods message to humanity and the way we have to submit to him.

The Purpose, The Truth :

The Purpose, The Truth The Prophets have described God as uniquely One External Absolute Has no beginning or end They have described God as one with no partners as well as the creator of everything in the Universe

The Purpose , The Truth:

The Purpose , The Truth These Unique attributes of God are the exact reason why the All Mighty is the only one worthy of Worship. Therefore people in general have to make the effort to try to understand and study these Prophets so that we understand and worship God by Gods standards.

The Evidence:

The Evidence The following Information is evidence that refutes the concept of the Trinity or a 3 in 1 God. This concept of 3 in 1 states God the father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are 1 God. The following Information is from the Bible and other accepted validated Christian literature refuting the concept of the Trinity.

Top Ten Reasons why the Trinity is Invalid:

Top Ten Reasons why the Trinity is Invalid

The Word Trinity Can’t Be Found:

The Word Trinity Can’t Be Found The Word Trinity Can’t be found in the Bible.

Harper Collins Encyclopedia :

Harper Collins Encyclopedia Harper Collins Encyclopedia of the Bible States “ The Doctrine of the Trinity as such is not revealed in the New Testament or the Old Testament”

The doctrine of the Trinity was dreamed up 200 years after Jesus :

The doctrine of the Trinity was dreamed up 200 years after Jesus The doctrine of the Trinity was dreamed up 200 years after the mission of Jesus Christ by a lawyer in Carthage Africa, Named Tertullian

Tertullian, Nicaea, Constantinople, Chalcedon:

Tertullian , Nicaea, Constantinople, Chalcedon Tertullian came up with the concept in 220 C.E. – If you talk to Christian Scholars about the Trinity they will tell you it’s an evolved doctrine. Meaning it was not a revealed doctrine. It evolved in the minds of the theologians who developed it. Council of Nicaea in 325 developed further, Council of Constantinople in 381 ratified it and it became authoritative at council of Chalcedon in 451. What are we saying? After 400 years after the time of Jesus, this is when the Trinity became official.

Hans Kung-The leading theologian of the Roman Catholic Church:

Hans Kung-The leading theologian of the Roman Catholic Church Hans Kung the leading theologian of the Roman Catholic Church. He commented “ There is no doctrine of 1 God in 3 persons or modes of being, no doctrine of Triune God , a Trinity.” These are the words of Hans Kung. If we don’t trusts him in regards in Catholic or Christian doctrine, who do we trust? Hans Kung was one of the most authoritative voices of Catholic or Christian Doctrine.

Harpers Bible Dictionary :

Harpers Bible Dictionary Harpers Bible Dictionary states “ The formal doctrine of the Trinity as it was defined by the great church councils of the 4 th and 5 th century is not to be found in the new testament.”

The New Catholic Encyclopedia :

The New Catholic Encyclopedia A more authoritative source the New Catholic Encyclopedia states “ the formula itself (the Trinity) does not reflect the immediate consciousness of the period of origins.” What does that mean? Period of origin in other words during the time of Jesus Christ and the recording of the manuscripts that formed the foundation of the Bible.

New Catholic Encyclopedia :

New Catholic Encyclopedia If you read further is says “ Among the Apostolic fathers, there had been nothing even remotely approaching such a mentality or perspective.” Nothing. That’s is a very strong statement for a Catholic reference work to make. The Apostolic fathers who were responsible for passing the religion to further generation refuted the concept of the Trinity.

The 1st Commandment:

The 1 st Commandment The 1 st Commandment- Not to place any partners beside God, that God is 1 God. Jesus states to the Israelites that the Lord our God is 1 God and this is the most important Commandment. Jesus also states that to reach eternal paradise is to follow the Commandment.

The Words of Jesus Christ:

The Words of Jesus Christ 3 Times in the Bible Jesus is recorded saying “ Here O’ Israel, the Lord our God, The Lord is One.” He doesn’t add any modification or explanation. If there were any place to explain the Trinity that would have been it. If you ask a Christian to explain God they will say “ Well God is 3 or 1 in 3 If they explain it that way, why didn’t Jesus Christ explain it that way?

Words of Jesus Christ :

Words of Jesus Christ Why did Jesus Christ say there is 1 God, period, and nothing more? Because there is nothing more. If Jesus wanted to explain the Trinity that would of have been the perfect spot. Instead Jesus is recorded 3 times in the Bible saying “ Here O Israel the Lord our God, the Lord is 1” in Mark 12:29, Matthew 22:37, and Luke 10:27. Jesus is not only saying the Lord is 1, but he’s saying that this is the most important Commandment, and too enter eternal life or paradise, you must follow the Commandments.

No evidence to support the Trinity to begin with:

No evidence to support the Trinity to begin with The reason why we shouldn’t believe the Trinity is because when we completely analyze the Bible there is no evidence to support the Trinity to begin with. That is a strong statement, but there are examples

No evidence to support the Trinity to begin with:

No evidence to support the Trinity to begin with Christian’s primary evidence for the Trinity in the Bible is the 1 st apostle of John Ch. 5: 7-8 “ there are 3 that testify in heaven, the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit, and these 3 are 1.” However, Christian scholars recognize that this verse is an insertion. It doesn’t exist in any of the ancient manuscripts, it was written in the margin by the scribe, who in the process of copying the manuscript wrote it as an personal insertion. Somebody liked it, they took into the margin and transported into the text.

The Interpreter's Bible :

The Interpreter's Bible The Interpreters Bible says “ the versus should be rejected”. Dr. Scolfield along with 8 doctors of divinity in his reference bible states “ This verse has no manuscript authority and it was inserted.” Professor Burke Metsker states “ the words are spurious and don’t belong in the new testament.” Kurt and Barbra Aland, and Bart D Erman and many others have recognized that what is called the Johani Coma or these verses are illegitimate. Read the NRSV, NIV, Jerusalem Bible, Etc. and you will find that these verses are modified or removed.

Other refuted Verses:

Other refuted Verses Another Refuted evidence of the Trinity is in Matt 28:19 where the disciples go out and baptize in the name of the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit. The Problem with this verse is Mark 16:15 which describes the exact same story but instead the disciples baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Which one of the verses do we take? Do we Recognized the contradiction between the 2? Most Certainly .

Other refuted Verses:

Other refuted Verses How do we resolve this? We look at what the disciples actually did, which is baptize in the name of Jesus. We have to assume that the disciples were either not doing what they told, which doesn’t make sense . Or if they were doing what they were told they did it in the name of Jesus. Even if Mat. 28:19 is true, it doesn’t make the three entities co-equal , co –eternal or 3 in 1.

Another Refuted verse in John 14:9:

Another Refuted verse in John 14:9 John 14:9 states “ he has seen me, has seen the father.” John 5:37 Jesus states “ you have neither herd his voice or seen his form.” It is clear that God and Jesus are not the same or equal entity.

Another Refuted verse in John 10:30:

Another Refuted verse in John 10:30 “I and the father are 1”. After John 10:30 the Jews accuse Jesus Christ of claiming to be God and they prepare to stone him But does Jesus reply with “ you heard me right , I am God, or the part of God”? No, he does not. Instead Jesus says he heard him wrong and he recites Psalms 82:7 Psalms 82:7 states those who believe in God, shall be called sons of God. This is Metamorphic language

John 17:11 and John 17:21:

John 17:11 and John 17:21 These verses talk about how the disciples are 1 with God and Jesus. Its no longer a Trinity Its Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit, all the disciples, and all the believers are 1. You don’t except metaphorical language in 1 passage, and not except literal wording in another.

What Did We Learn:

What Did We Learn Well I Hope you strongly consider the information presented in this PowerPoint. I hope you take it in with open heart and open mind, and accept the Truth and leave any belief that with common knowledge proves is evolved by man and is not revealed by the All Mighty.
