Guys, major issue. This article below says how Tertillian invented the Trinity Doctrine when he added pagan practices to the faith to make it attractive for pagans. Quote: He also admitted, “Much of the defense of the Trinity as a 'revealed' doctrine, is really an evasion of the objections that can be brought against it.” — (p. 16)


The Son is the Logos, easy, but the Spirit? I don’t see that as a nature of God tbh fam.

Oh so when God layed His Spirit over Moses, the 70 elders, Josua and so on and so forth, that's not the Spirit of God, which necessarily must be God ? Really made me think

1049f3 No.617784


Sorry, that sounded more sarcastic than I intended to. No, TertUllian did not invent the Trinity. It's all over Scripture, both, New and Old Testament

It’s not bait, we’re talking about God here.

The Spirit of God was to my understanding seen as a force rather than a form of God - until Constantinople.

Study the qualities of each person and then see how to explain it, there is only one way without causing creator/creature problems. One substance, one union, three persons. I'm not sure if it's some kind of heresy, but I currently think of the trinity as one material (like iron) made into three persons, but connected in union by the same stuff that they are made out of.

All I know is the early church fathers did not believe the Holy Spirit was a person like Christ the Logos was. It was never mentioned as a third form of god, nor as something particularly important. If you ask me the guys who came up with this got duped by Valentinian heresy of a Mother Nature of god and that shit is pagan 100%.

Teachings of the trinity only divide Christians more with calling everyone who does not believe in it a heretic. There is only one God, that is correct, but to seperate him in three different entities is an oxymoron of everything God commanded in the Old, as well as the New Testament. Now, I know God can assume and create different forms of Himself. The Word was His first creation. God is the light itself, while the Word is the sound itself. The Word, or Jesus - as we all know Him - was in the beginning with God, but God has no beginning; God always was, is, and will be. But through the Word He created everything we can perceive. As John 1:1-3 says:

>1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

>2 The same was in the beginning with God.

>3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Also the spirit, is one form of God that is among us on the Earth, not a completely seperate entity. The concept of the Trinity always seemed fishy to me and think that it is one giant Jewish trick to make Christianity look like polytheism that claims to be monotheism.

So you're saying 2000 years of tradition that has sparked from Christ and the Apostles themselves, even the ~300 years to the ecumenical council of Nicea - are worthless, because you think your bible - which has firstly been given you by these very men you condemn and which is only a translation of translations of the original words of the inspired texts - is the only source of faith and truth. Also you say Christ is a liar, because when He established the Church and told Peter that the gates of hell shall never prevail against it - by divine intervention - that actually wasn't true. Also you deny God is working through the Church by revealing more truth bit by bit so that we may be able to digest and make sense of it ?

The gist of it is just that you're like "muh jooz" and hold yourself to be the utmost authority on all things faith-related - apparently you're even above God. I see. That's blasphemy and a blatant display of unlimited hubris and pride.

May God have mercy.

You reason exactly like the Pharisees. All your secondary literature is the reason what you believe but not the Bible. You know, there is one thing the Catholic church did very well: gathering all the scrolls and manuscripts of the Old and New Testament they could, translating them, compiling them to one book, and not adding their own doctrine. In this part, they showed integrity. They even showed great integrity at not adding any gnostic books. Jesus was exactly against the "Traditions" of the (Talmudic) Jews that perverted faith to our one true God. And you come to tell me that your traditions are above the very Word of God. Don't get me wrong, there are sure Catholics that live infinitely more Christ-like than me, you, or any non-Catholic. It still doesn't mean that those who argue with "muh Church tradition and secondary literature" make Christianity look like Judaism and Islam, because both latter religions need secondary literature - but yet as equal - to their holy books.

The Bible is the fruit of Tradition, The new testament are compilation of saved letters from the apostles, to congregations who were reliant on oral tradition to keep the teachings intact. The Bible came out of the Church, not the other way around.

>Could be a title for god, figuratively, metaphorically, anything

Except Holy Spirit is used as personal name.

"He (God) have sent me (God) and his Spirit"

t. Isaiah

"He (Father) will sent another, Holy Spirit, to be with you after I am gone"

"Holy Spirt procedes from the Father"

"Baptise them in the name of the Father and Son and Holy Spirt"

t. Jesus

>All I know is the early church fathers did not believe the Holy Spirit was a person like Christ the Logos was

They introduce God as a Being unknown; they suppose Christ to be unbegotten; and as to the Spirit, they do not admit that He exists. Some of them say that the Son is a mere man, and that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are but the same person, and that the creation is the work of God, not by Christ, but by some other strange power.

If I ever refuted scripture I would not be Trinitarian. But know my grace and anserw this one question - is time creation? For if it is and yet there was a time when Son was not like you would like to believe little Arius, then Son is at least second creation.

"I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord God, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore"

God exists beyond the realm of time. The concept of time only exists for us but not for Him, given he always was, is, and will be. Time has no relevance to Him. When the beginning was, He created everything through Christ. I am sure He created time, but rather as a guideline for us. What is time for Him and for us is a great difference though. In Daniel it says one day for God are 1000 years for us.

You are a retard who takes something the Church gave you, and then have the nerve to trash the Church. You are just a modern day arian.

Learn what the Bible is, huge retard. You have failed to address a single point, and I wouldn't be surprised if your answer was stored in a file called "damage-control.txt" that you mindlessly copypaste when someone points out the infinite contraditions in everything you say. You keep repeating the same canned buzzwords about pharisees. You are exactly like the other idiot who says that Paul is unbiblical. And just like him, you are yet another product of protestantism, where braindead retards take the Bible, without knowing anything about what it is or its origin, and start making up fanfics. There is no difference between you and a mormon.

You are in no position to say who is Christ-like bcause you know nothing about Christ. So stop fueling your insane fanfic and go learn something about Christianity so that, eventually, you can convert to it.

Scripture disagrees.

>…Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. And he declared to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, and that He had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus. So he was with them at Jerusalem, coming in and going out. And he spoke boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus and disputed against the Hellenists, but they attempted to kill him.

>Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.

You care about what that book says because it is scripture

You consider it to be scrupture because the Church told you it was Scripture

That very Church, that very group of people, also said Paul's writtings were Scripture.

Now please, stop coming iup with more excuses, you are embarrassing yourself, ex-muslim
