There were many wide-spread lies in the dark ages in the church. Many of those lies were bound by the reform. But when it comes to the nature of God. There is a concept that still persists and preached as if it is true. It’s not based on scriptures or anything. It’s just a very defended concept that many support.
This is the saying that Trinity is a mystery that no one can possibly understand. It’s a way to close the subject before any question may arise. Whoever even touches it, is automatically considered heretic. This was one of the main causes of mass killing by the Catholic church based on heresies.
No one could ever understand such a mystery.
Why? Because it does not makes sense neither logically or spiritually.
Why? No explanation.
It has to be accepted. Why? You just have to believe it.
Should we accept something that has no base on the bible teachings as an absolute true?
Should we close ourselves to what the scriptures have to say about it?
There are three manifestations of God, yes. This is undeniable in the scriptures. The old testament shows God speaking from heaven, as Creator and The Great “I AM.” It also shows God appearing to selected people as an angel. God also shows as the Anointing power of The Spirit of God.
In the New Testament, The Lord also shows as The Father creator of all things speaking from Heaven. It also shows as Jesus (God on Earth). It also shows as the Anointing Power of Pentecost that empower believers to do the works of God.
God is three persons yet one substance. The problem here is persons. It clearly contradicts that God is one. And this is wrong. It’s an invitation to idolatry. It recognizes a common essence (Spirit), but the thing is that only the essence (Spirit) is God, not the persons. Those are manifestations of one God.
I do not believe that believers in Trinity believe that there are three gods, but I often hear when some people has this confusing idea of who they should worship The Father or The son or The Holy Ghost. This makes clear that this concept is misleading many.
God is manifested in three different ways in the old testament and in the new testament. The only difference is that an Angel portraits as God in the old testament and in the new testament, a man portraits as God. The bible clearly indicates that God is Spirit.
Christians belief that God has no beginning and neither an ending. We all know that angels and humans are God’s creation, therefore neither the angel or the man can be God.
The bible never says that God is an angel, neither a man. In fact it says that “God is not a man to lie neither son of man to repent.” The bible clearly indicates that God is one and that he won’t tolerate any other god before him or next to him. God says that he does not know any other God.
Why I write this? Because, I belief is very important to keep the word as it is. And that using crutches like the Trinity only brings confusion and take us away from the true. The bible is not a puzzle where pieces do not match. The bible is clear enough when is not used out of context. The Jews had the same God and its manifestations and they did not have to kill any heretics on the subject like the old church did. They had no problem saying that God is one and neither I do.
Does this means is wrong to worship Jesus? Jesus is the temple made not with hands where The Lord dwells. Actually, when we worship Jesus recognizing him as God, we are actually worshiping God. Like is written, nobody has ever seen God. We can only know God through Jesus. Jesus is God Almighty who came in the form of man. But if we worship Jesus thinking of him as a man, we are lost.
“God is Spirit.”
The bible is more clear than the doctrine of Trinity when it comes to explain God. It’s not confusing and it has no need to enforce an unsolvable mystery.
Why is so important to see God as one?
Because Jesus words as not less than God’s words. Anything the Lord Jesus said, it’s law and it can’t be taken away. If The Lord Jesus says to love the enemy, we better learn to do so. Jesus words are not words of man, but the words of God.
It’s hard to belief in the unknown and unexplained. Faith is based on conviction, experience, not on emptiness. We only can believe what we know or what we belief has to be true, because we can’t conceive it otherwise.
Belief is based on trust. We belief in God because we trust him. We trust him, because we pray and we see results. Sometimes we do not see what we expect, but many times the “coincidences” just amaze us. God is wonderful, because he cares. When I need him the most, I can count on him. I may go through troubles, but there is always an open door for me. He does not let us down.
God is alive, we can ask questions, we can ask things to him. Try him. The only requirement to receive is to obey and to belief.
The Lord does not want us to have the eyes closed and live in blindness, but wide open.
Often in The Gospels, The Lord says, “Watch!”, “Be careful! Watch out!”, “Pay attention”. The Lord wants us belief from the heart. What comes from the heart is not an imposition, but the the result of strong conviction.
