Jesus instructed his believers to spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately many of the clear teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ have been manipulated and distorted to conform to the requirements and ease of understanding for congregations and their respective demands and challenges.
The fact is, Bible teachings do not change, no matter how much society does and the doctrine of the trinity was not taught by the apostles or Jesus. It developed from disputes over the nature of Christ and implemented later to establish a common doctrinal position. The booklet ‘Jesus – God the Son or Son of God?’ gives more detail on the origin of the doctrine of the trinity and explores it’s erroneous assertion, citing relevant Bible quotes and explanations.
However, the doctrine of the Trinity is also logically unsound and directly contradicts many passages of Scripture. Below are a number of points to consider:
These are just a few logical objections to the Trinity. There are some very serious repercussions to us if we do believe in this false doctrine.
We should be searching the scriptures for ourselves, not relying on priests and preachers to tell us without questioning. It is vitally important not to blindly follow false doctrines or traditions. Jesus said “… in vain they worship me, teaching as doctrine the commandments of men…. making the Word of God of no effect through your traditions which you have handed down.” (Mark 7:7,13)
Those who teach that Jesus is God, are not teaching of the Jesus that the apostles’ taught. One who ‘preaches another Jesus whom we (the Apostles) have not preached…. are false prophets and deceitful workers, posing as Apostles’ (2 Corinthians 11:4,13)
We are told in John 4:24 that we must worship in Truth – our salvation is conditional on it! Open your Bibles and search out that truth for yourselves.
