A Trinitarian's Belief In Three Beings:Is There Proof??

A Trinitarian's Belief in Three Beings: Is There Proof??


Introduction:

We must examine all the Scriptures listed herein, especially near the end of this study.


OVERALL, IS THERE SOMEONE NOT DIRECTLY MENTIONED HEREIN??


{John 5:30} I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.


{Jn.14:10,12}:

{10}Believe you not that I am IN the Father, and the FATHER IN me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the FATHER that dwells IN me, HE (Speaking of Almighty God the FATHER HIMSELF the eternal Holy Spirit who DWELT IN Jesus) does the works.

{12}Verily, verily, (Or TRULY, TRULY) I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do ALSO; and greater works than these shall he do; BECAUSE I go unto my Father.


How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? {Heb.9:14}


{Jn.4:23-24}:

{23} But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

{24} God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.

WHAT ABOUT Matt.28:19

{Mat 28:19 KJV} Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:


It was known by the Catholic Church that the Jews had preserved a copy of the ORIGINAL Gospel of Matthew in the Hebrew language.  How this was preserved and handed down we do not know.  In fact, it does not matter.  IT EXISTS & THAT IS PROOF ENOUGH THAT GOD WANTED IT PRESERVED.  There have been many attempts to destroy the credibility of this very valuable Hebrew Gospel for obvious reasons.  It is the ONLY existing manuscript that proves Matthew 28:19 did NOT originally contain the Trinitarian baptismal formula. Catholics and Protestants have no other reason to cast doubt on the validity of this manuscript. Claims that it is spurious are of course self-serving to Trinitarians.  Such denials make Jesus say what he did NOT say.  This of itself is an abomination.  It is a sin to make Jesus say a trinitarian baptismal formula and put into  his mouth their trinitarian godhead doctrine fabricated at Nicaea in 325AD.  Now that this manuscript is known among the Apostolic Oneness, we will promote the fact that the Catholic Church has willingly lied about Matthew 28:19 and the Catholics in general (including the Eastern Orthodox) have lied to the world....This Baptist false doctrine was developed when their scholars discovered the Trinity baptismal formula was NOT in the ORIGINAL Hebrew Gospel of Matthew. Interesting that a false doctrine could be birthed based upon what is NOT in the Bible, rather then what is IN the Bible. Trinitarians hid the knowledge of this Hebrew Gospel from the Oneness Apostolics, but God made it possible that through a Baptist scholar, the truth about the missing Trinitarian baptismal formula would be published.


In 1995 Dr. George Howard translated a copy of Shem Tov's Matthew Hebrew Gospel.  You may purchase a copy of "Hebrew Gospel of Matthew" from many sources.  You can look at the evidence for yourself.  For the first time in modern history the text of Matthew 28:19 from this Hebrew Gospel text is being posted on the internet.


MATTHEW 28:9-20 ~~ FRAUD EXPOSED


Shem Tov's Hebrew Matthew Gospel


Matthew 28:9-20


Please note that in verse 19 there is NO Trinitarian formula.


This is ABSOLUTE proof the Trinity was fraudulently added to this text


Shem Tov's Hebrew Matthew Gospel


Matthew 28:9-20


[Hebrew] Matthew 28:19 -"Go"


[Hebrew] Matthew 28:20  -"and [teach] them to carry out all the things which I have commanded you forever."


Please note that in verse 19 there is NO Trinitarian formula.


This is ABSOLUTE proof the Trinity was fraudulently added to this text.


Now that you have seen the evidence, you who have been baptized in the false Trinitarian formula must see Acts 2:38 as the true and only baptismal formula in the New Testament, and to which all other incidents of this grace of God in subsequent text points. 


The following excerpts come from an unaltered book of Matthew that could have even been the original or the first copy of the original of Matthew. Thus Eusebius informs us of the actual words Jesus spoke to his disciples in Matthew 28:19. “With one word and voice He said to His disciples: “Go, and make disciples of all nations in My Name, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you,” — (Proof of the Gospel by Eusebius, Book III, ch 6, 132 (a), p. 152)

WHAT ABOUT 2Cor.13:14

{2Co 13:14 KJV} The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, [be] with you all. Amen.


Some Trinitarians claim 2Corinthians 13:14 supports their belief in a Trinity. But this verse in no way affirms the Trinity doctrine which states that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three co-equal, co-eternal beings that make up one God.


Nobody denies there is the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. (The Spirit of God is holy)!


2 Corinthians 13:14 does not say they are three beings,

it does not say they are three in one or one in three,

it does not say these three are the Godhead,

it does not say these three are a Trinity,

it does not say these three are co-equal or co-eternal beings,

it does not say that these three are all God.


It is through the Holy Spirit that both the Father and Son make their abode in you. “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:23


So when we are given the Holy Spirit, are we given another being or God Himself? A. GOD HIMSELF.

2Cor.13:14 is stating (1)the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ (2)the love of God (3)the communion or fellowship of the Holy Spirit. (Reconcile this truth with the following two Scriptures):


{Jhn 14:23 KJV} Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.


{Rom 8:9 KJV} But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.


2 Corinthians 13:14 supports the non-Trinitarian truth.

WHAT ABOUT 1Jn.5:7

{1Jo 5:6 KJV} This is he that came by water and blood, [even] Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.


{1Jo 5:7 KJV} For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.


{1Jo 5:8 KJV} And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.


The so-called Johannine Comma (also called the Comma Johanneum) is a sequence of extra words which appear in 1 John 5:7-8 in some early printed editions of the Greek New Testament. In these editions the verses appear thus (we put backets around the extra words):


ὅτι τρεῖς εἰσιν οἱ μαρτυροῦντες [ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ, ὁ Πατήρ, ὁ Λόγος, καὶ τὸ Ἅγιον Πνεῦμα· καὶ οὗτοι οἱ τρεῖς ἔν εἰσι. 8 καὶ τρεῖς εἰσιν οἱ μαρτυροῦντες ἐν τῇ γῇ] τὸ πνεῦμα καὶ τὸ ὕδωρ καὶ τὸ αἷμα, καὶ οἱ τρεῖς εἰς τὸ ἕν εἰσιν.


The King James Version, which was based upon these editions, gives the following translation:


For there are three that bear record [in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth], the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.


These extra words are generally absent from the Greek manuscripts. In fact, they only appear in the text of four late medieval manuscripts. They seem to have originated as a marginal note added to certain Latin manuscripts during the middle ages, which was eventually incorporated into the text of most of the later Vulgate manuscripts. In the Clementine edition of the Vulgate the verses were printed thus:


Quoniam tres sunt, qui testimonium dant [in caelo: Pater, Verbum, et Spiritus Sanctus: et hi tres unum sunt. 8 Et tres sunt, qui testimonium dant in terra:] spiritus, et aqua, et sanguis: et hi tres unum sunt.


From the Vulgate, then, it seems that the Comma was translated into Greek and inserted into some printed editions of the Greek text, and in a handful of late Greek manuscripts. All scholars consider it to be spurious, and it is not included in modern critical editions of the Greek text, or in the English versions based upon them. For example, the English Standard Version reads:


For there are three that testify: 8 the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.


We give below the comments of Dr. Bruce M. Metzger on 1 John 5:7-8, from his book, A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament, 2nd ed. (Stuttgart, 1993).


After μαρτυροῦντες the Textus Receptus adds the following: ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ, ὁ Πατήρ, ὁ Λόγος, καὶ τὸ Ἅγιον Πνεῦμα· καὶ οὗτοι οἱ τρεῖς ἔν εἰσι. 8 καὶ τρεῖς εἰσιν οἱ μαρτυροῦντες ἐν τῇ γῇ. That these words are spurious and have no right to stand in the New Testament is certain in the light of the following considerations.


(A) External Evidence.

(1) The passage is absent from every known Greek manuscript except eight, and these contain the passage in what appears to be a translation from a late recension of the Latin Vulgate. Four of the eight manuscripts contain the passage as a variant reading written in the margin as a later addition to the manuscript. The eight manuscripts are as follows:


61: codex Montfortianus, dating from the early sixteenth century.

88: a variant reading in a sixteenth century hand, added to the fourteenth-century codex Regius of Naples.

221: a variant reading added to a tenth-century manuscript in the Bodleian Library at Oxford.

429: a variant reading added to a sixteenth-century manuscript at Wolfenbüttel.

629: a fourteenth or fifteenth century manuscript in the Vatican.

636: a variant reading added to a sixteenth-century manuscript at Naples.

918: a sixteenth-century manuscript at the Escorial, Spain.

2318: an eighteenth-century manuscript, influenced by the Clementine Vulgate, at Bucharest, Rumania.

(2) The passage is quoted by none of the Greek Fathers, who, had they known it, would most certainly have employed it in the Trinitarian controversies (Sabellian and Arian). Its first appearance in Greek is in a Greek version of the (Latin) Acts of the Lateran Council in 1215.


(3) The passage is absent from the manuscripts of all ancient versions (Syriac, Coptic, Armenian, Ethiopic, Arabic, Slavonic), except the Latin; and it is not found (a) in the Old Latin in its early form (Tertullian Cyprian Augustine), or in the Vulgate (b) as issued by Jerome (codex Fuldensis [copied a.d. 541-46] and codex Amiatinus [copied before a.d. 716]) or (c) as revised by Alcuin (first hand of codex Vallicellianus [ninth century]).


The earliest instance of the passage being quoted as a part of the actual text of the Epistle is in a fourth century Latin treatise entitled Liber Apologeticus (chap. 4), attributed either to the Spanish heretic Priscillian (died about 385) or to his follower Bishop Instantius. Apparently the gloss arose when the original passage was understood to symbolize the Trinity (through the mention of three witnesses: the Spirit, the water, and the blood), an interpretation that may have been written first as a marginal note that afterwards found its way into the text. In the fifth century the gloss was quoted by Latin Fathers in North Africa and Italy as part of the text of the Epistle, and from the sixth century onwards it is found more and more frequently in manuscripts of the Old Latin and of the Vulgate. In these various witnesses the wording of the passage differs in several particulars. (For examples of other intrusions into the Latin text of 1 John, see 2.17; 4.3; 5.6, and 20.)


For the account of how the spurious words came to be included in the Textus Receptus, see any critical commentary on 1 John, or Metzger, The Text of the New Testament, pp. 101 f.; cf. also Ezra Abbot, "I. John v. 7 and Luther's German Bible," in The Authorship of the Fourth Gospel and Other Critical Essays (Boston, 1888), pp. 458-463.

Testimony from a Theologian, Quarterly Publication, and a Commentary:


1 - SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST BIBLE COMMENTARY (1951):

“The passage as given in the KJV is in no Greek MS earlier than the 15th and 16th centuries. The disputed words found their way into the KJV by way of the Greek text of Erasmus (see Vol. V, p. 141). It is said that Erasmus offered to include the disputed words in his Greek Testament if he were shown even one Greek MS that contained them. A library in Dublin produced such a MS (known as 34), and Erasmus included the passage in his text. It is now believed that the later editions of the Vulgate acquired the passage by the mistake of a scribe who included an exegetical marginal comment in the Bible text that he was copying. The disputed words have been widely used in support of the doctrine of the Trinity, BUT, IN VIEW OF SUCH OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE AGAINST THEIR AUTHENTICITY, THEIR SUPPORT IS VALUELESS AND SHOULD NOT BE USED. In spite of their appearance in the Vulgate A CATHOLIC COMMENTARY on Holy Scripture FREELY ADMITS regarding these words: “It is now generally held that this passage, called the Comma Johanneum, is a GLOSS that CREPT INTO THE TEXT of the Old Latin and Vulgate at an EARLY DATE, BUT found its way into the Greek text ONLY in the 15th and 16th centuries”


2 - ANGEL MANUEL RODRIGUEZ, BIBLICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE, SDA GC (1998):

“IN THE CASE YOU CITE, WE KNOW QUITE WELL WHAT HAPPENED. The bracketed section shows up for the first time in manuscripts of the Latin version ONLY AFTER A.D. 600. It is NOT found in Greek manuscripts UNTIL AFTER A.D. 1400. Henceforth, according to the experts, it is found in FOUR Greek manuscripts as a TRANSLATION FROM the Latin AND INSERTED into the Greek text. The ADDITION is NOT FOUND in ANY of the other ancient versions. HOW DID IT BECOME PART OF THE GREEK TEXT? Here is "the rest of the story." When Erasmus published his version of the Greek New Testament, HE LEFT OUT THE ADDITIONS to 1 John 5:7 from his first two editions (1516, 1519), arguing that he COULD NOT FIND those words in ANY Greek manuscript. PRESSURED BY SOME to include this addition to the Greek text, Erasmus proposed that if they could show him a single Greek manuscript in which the addition was found, he would include it in his next edition. SURE ENOUGH, they CAME UP WITH a Greek manuscript in which the addition was found, one scholars believe was dated from the sixteenth century A.D., translated FROM THE LATIN to the Greek AND ADDED to the Greek text. Erasmus subsequently included it in his 1522 edition of the Greek New Testament.


3 - SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST SABBATH SCHOOL QUARTERLY (2009):

“In some versions of the Bible the words “in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit’ and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth” appear in 1 John 5:7, 8 (NKJV). THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THEY ARE A LATER ADDITION, NOT FOUND IN THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPTS. “Among biblical scholars there is AGREEMENT that this statement is NOT GENUINE and has been ADDED, probably to SUPPORT the doctrine of the Trinity...”


Many more reputable sources could have been cited if volume was not a concern!

Concluding Comments:

Worshipping the Holy Spirit is bringing Trinitarianism to its logical conclusions, and at the same time exposing Trinitarianism as modern day Baal worship. Trinitarianism was introduced into Christianity as one of the new and strange beliefs to make Christianity acceptible to the non-Christians in the Roman Empire, together with other concepts such as the hallowing of Sunday, Easter and Christmas, amongst other lesser doctrines. The worship of Baal, Ashteroth and Tammuz (or equivalents) was quite common amongst the non-Christians/Jews during the Old Testament times and on into the era after Christ. Bringing a three-god system into the amalgamated religion in the Roman Empire made it quite comfortable for the non-Christian component.


What many fail to recognise is that to the Jews, there is only one God, and the Spirit of God is just that, not a separate being or god(see Acts 5:3-4 below). The Jews were God's chosen people and God raised the Jewish nation as non-Trinitarian which has never changed. Trinitarians often try and use the language of the Jews to prove the Trinity doctrine and yet the people that this language belongs to were never Trinitarians!


Most of the Bible was written by the Jews who never believed or taught the Trinity doctrine and still do not today. And Jesus of course was a Jew as were His disciples. How do you teach the Trinity doctrine from the Bible when it is a non-Trinitarian book? The apostle John for instance could never have been teaching the Comforter and Spirit of truth is another being as the Jews have never taught or believed that ever. So the Bible had non-Trinitarian authors. Christians have been indoctrinated with many nice sounding erroneous ideas to make them think the doctrine is in the Bible when in fact it cannot be.


We also know the Bible is a non-Trinitarian book as the word Trinity did not exist until about 200 A.D. at which point the idea of the Holy Spirit as a third being and the 3 in 1 still did not exist. The "fully developed trinity doctrine" did not exist until 381 A.D. So it is impossible for any of the Bible authors to have written about something that did not exist in their lifetime.


“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord [Jesus], one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 4:4-6


Since the Trinity doctrine teaches a three in one God, then Trinitarians use the corresponding phrases “God the Father,” “God the Son” and “God the Spirit.” They call all three gods. But since the Bible says there is only one God, then Trinitarians have to say that all three are one God. If this were true, then indeed the Bible would use these phrases and call them all God. So is it true? Does the Bible say this? No! If there really were three "Gods" then the Bible would use these phrases. But it doesn't because there isn't. The Bible means what it says and says what it means! It says there is only one God being “God the Father” and so the Father is the only one called God. (See Acts 5:3-4):


{Act 5:3 KJV} But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to LIE TO THE HOLY GHOST, and to keep back [part] of the price of the land?


{Act 5:4 KJV} Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not LIED unto men, but UNTO GOD.


If God wanted us to believe He was a Trinity, He would tell us in clear plain words. There is no Scripture that specifically states the Holy Spirit is supreme over God so once again, the Holy

Spirit as a third god is erroneously assumed.


Recognising Him as the only True God is the ultimate doctrine and acknowledging Christ as His Son is the criteria for salvation (John 17:3 and 3:18)
