Please read Part 1 first as Part 2 is a continuation of this theme.
- The Grave Error of Christianity: the Trinity Doctrine
The purpose of this article will expose the deception behind the Trinitarian doctrine and will explain the consequences of adhering to it.
The purpose of this article will continue off of Part 1 of this series that explores the deception of believing in the Trinity doctrine and the consequences of adhering to it. When the Trinity is added to the Gospel, the ultimate conclusion is to believe that it is impossible to be without sin in this lifetime; only Christ could have achieved this because he is 'God the Son,' meaning he is God. This means that pressing on towards perfection and being an overcomer by following Christ’s walk in righteousness by faith is not possible. Rather, the righteousness of Christ is 'imputed,' and his blood is a cloak for sin; therefore, the Father no longer sees them. The Christian is deemed 'perfect,' or in other words 'without sin' because their one time confession of sin at an altar call means that 'it is finished,' including all of their future sins. All they have to do now is simply 'believe.'
John wrote to the ekklesia so that they would 'sin not.'
Why would he state it if it were impossible to walk as Christ walked?
You cannot have it both ways. You either believe in the Trinity Gospel, or the Gospel of Christ that brings victory. The Trinity nullifies the genuine Gospel of Christ and the ministry of the apostles who were sent by the power of the Holy Spirit to lead us into 'perfection.'
And He gave some indeed to be apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some shepherds and teachers, TOWARD THE PERFECTING OF THE SAINTS for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ, until WE ALL MAY ATTAIN TO THE UNITY OF THE FAITH and of the knowledge of the Son of God, UNTO A COMPLETE MAN, to the measure of the stature of the FULLNESS OF CHRIST,
so that no longer we might be infants, being tossed by waves and BEING CARRIED ABOUT by every wind of teaching in the cunning, in the craftiness of men with a view to the scheming of deceit. But speaking the truth in love, we should grow up in all things into Him who is the head, Christ – Ephesians 4:11-15
If imputed righteousness were true, then Christ’s rebuke of the Scribes and Pharisees would be completely unfair, unreasonable, unrealistic and unattainable.
If I had not come and spoken to them, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE HAD SIN; but now they have NO EXCUSE for their sin. – John 15:22
If I had not done among them the works that no other has done, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE HAD SIN; but now they have both seen and hated both Me and My Father. – John 15:24
Christ’s works of righteousness took the Pharisee's 'cloak' for sin away leaving them without an excuse because his works put theirs to shame demonstrating that a man could be truly righteous.
If the works of Christ were done because he was the second person of the Trinity, then his works would not reflect badly on the Scribes and Pharisees.
They could never live up to his example of righteousness if he was God.
Trinity doctrine must present that only God as 'God the Son' can live without sin in the flesh.
If that is the case, then Christ cannot take away Pharisee's 'cloak,' which proves that they cannot have control over their flesh confirming their 'cloak.' Their 'cloak' would not take away their excuse, but rather would be a built in excuse for it.
Do you see the irony here?
The righteousness of Christ takes away the cloak for sin, yet the Trinity doctrine teaches that it provides a 'cloak' (covering) for sin.
Here we have a clear distinction between the Trinity version of the Gospel and the genuine Gospel of Christ.
One provides a cloak for sin taking away the consequences, even when still in sin. The other takes away sins by having victory over them by destroying the works of the devil.
Which one do you believe in?
Works of Righteousness by Faith, or Self-Righteousness?
If Christ was doing works of righteousness by his own power, then his words to the Pharisees were self-righteous. This would make Christ was hypocrite like them, especially if he is comparing his own self-righteousness with theirs with the advantage of having Godly powers that kept him from sinning.
The Trinity doctrine misses the entire message of the true Gospel. Christ said that if he testified of himself, then his testimony was false. Christ said that his Father testified on his behalf through the works that he did. He also said to his followers that they too would testify of the same works once they received the power of the Holy Spirit.
If I bear witness concerning Myself, MY TESTIMONY IS NOT TRUE. – John 5:31
But I have testimony greater than that of John. For the works that the Father has given Me that I should complete them, the same works which I do, BEAR WITNESS CONCERNING ME THAT THE FATHER HAS SENT ME. – John 5:36
Christ could do no miracles or works of righteousness unless it was Father working through him. That is why he testified of his faith in his Father and the works he did were the Father’s testimony on his behalf.
When the HELPER comes, whom I will send to you FROM THE FATHER, the SPIRIT OF TRUTH who goes forth FROM THE FATHER, He will bear witness concerning Me. And you also bear witness, because you are with Me from the beginning. – John 15:26-27
The Purpose of the Cross
The apostles spoke that all the work that they did was through the Holy Spirit to bring maturity into the body of Christ moving towards perfection of being in the fullness of him.
Why would they say this if it was impossible in this lifetime?
The Good News is that it is attainable!
This is the purpose of the cross.
To believe in Trinitarian doctrine means to turn away from truth and believe in a lie. It is to believe that you are already 'perfect' and you do not have to attain or have nothing to attain to because you already have imputed righteousness.
To whom God has willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory, whom we preach, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, SO THAT WE MAY PRESENT EVERY MAN PERFECT IN CHRIST. – Colossians 1:27-28
My children, of whom I travail again until that CHRIST SHALL HAVE BEEN FORMED IN YOU – Galatians 4:19
Peter called those who say that they cannot stop sinning 'cursed children.'
Then the Lord knows to deliver the devout out of temptation and to keep the unrighteous being punished unto the day of judgment, and especially those WALKING AFTER THE FLESH in the passion of defilement and despising authority. Bold, self-willed, they do not tremble blaspheming glorious ones, whereas angels, being greater in strength and power, do not bring against them a reviling judgment before the Lord. But these, like irrational animals,
having been born as creatures of instinct for capture and destruction, BLASPHEMING IN WHAT THEY ARE IGNORANT OF, in their destruction also will be destroyed, suffering wrong as the wage of unrighteousness; esteeming carousal in daytime as pleasure; blots and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, feasting with you; having eyes full of adultery, and UNCEASING FROM SIN; enticing unestablished souls; having a heart having been exercised in craving—CHILDREN OF A CURSE! – 2 Peter 9-14
Paul never stated that he was already saved, nor being perfect, but followed after it by seeking to attain it in his lifetime. He ran the race to win and seek the prize that was within his reach.
If it were unattainable, not being able to be won in his lifetime, then why would he even try running the race?
And be found in Him, not having my own righteousness which is of the Law, but that which is THROUGH FAITH from Christ, the righteousness of God on the basis of faith, to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from out of dead. NOT THAT ALREADY I HAVE OBTAINED IT OR ALREADY HAVE BEEN PERFECTED, but I AM PURSUING,
if also I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing indeed: Forgetting the things behind and REACHING FORWARD to the things ahead, I PRESS ON TOWARD THE GOAL for the prize of the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 3:9-14
The Trinitarian cannot speak of the righteousness that comes by faith, nor actually do it either because they believe that they are righteous by proxy (imputed).
When we read the words of Paul, he sated that he had not attained it yet, but was pressing on in the faith of Christ.
The Trinitarian will say we cannot have our own righteousness.
Paul had something different to say by saying that his own righteousness did not come by the Law, but righteousness that came by faith. He didn’t say we can’t have our own righteousness, but said it came by faith, rather than by the Law. Paul never said he was saved, nor did he say he attained the resurrection, but SOUGHT after righteousness by faith to attain to a resurrection.
Can you make the distinctions between the true and false doctrine?
Lip Service and Deceptive Reasoning
The Trinitarian loves the lip service game by saying that they believe in pressing on through faith and seek to be like Jesus and live without sin. Yet, by their doctrine they must believe that only Christ could attain this in the flesh because he is 'God the Son.' The are deceivers as they say that are 'reaching forward' and 'pressing on,' yet openly say they cannot reach the finish line in this lifetime because it is only something Christ could do because he is God.
Trinitarians rob themselves of true victory because they believe they will continue in sin and consider themselves nothing but sinners. They say, 'Don’t we all sin?' They do not have faith, but speak of an antichrist faith. They will say, 'If it were possible, then there would be no need for grace.'
Those who preach contrary to their delusions are called 'heretics' and 'liars.'
The Trinitarian loves to point the finger at the opposer and says, 'Are you sinless?'
They do not comprehend the words of Paul who said that he had not yet 'already attained.'
They will the retort,
'Do you know anyone who attained sinless perfection in their lifetime?'
I say, 'Yes, I do!'
It is Christ, he was a man in the flesh who overcame sin and lived perfect. To truly follow him in victory means one must abandon the deceptive teachings of the Trinity doctrine and believe that we too can live righteous by faith as he did.
This is the crux of the faulty deceptive Trinity doctrine because their Christ does not count because he is God. 'God the Son' the God-man cannot be their example to follow because his righteousness was self-righteousness and cannot be deemed as a demonstration of faith.
The sorry fact is that they have no one to follow because their Christ being God is unfollowable.
Here is the deception in a nutshell,
When the Trinitarian says that they are a follower of Christ, it does not mean that they really follow him; it means that they just believe in what Christ did for them. They don’t believe that they have to truly follow because they are already deemed as followers of Christ by imputation.
A true believer in Christ knows that they are being made righteous by the power of the Holy Spirit into a perfect people who are pleasing to their Father.
The Trinitarian believes that they will not be made literally righteous until Christ returns and they are resurrected in their new bodies. They miss that Paul said that we shall not all sleep, but attain to a resurrection.
Behold, I tell to you a mystery: WE WILL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE WILL ALL BE CHANGED – 1 Corinthians 15:51
Content to Sit and Wait
Most within the church system believe that they cannot attain perfection in their lifetime until Christ returns giving it to them. They are content to sit in their pews without pressing forward wallowing in their sinful man-driven religious existence believing that they have imputed righteousness. Putting on incorruption is not a daily walk of faith, but a day they wait for in the future.
They ignore the words of Paul who said that putting off of corruption is something we must do on a daily basis.
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, KNOWING THAT YOUR TOIL IN THE LORD IS NOT IN VAIN. – 1 Corinthians 15:58
Trinitarian doctrine must nullify the work of faith, which in turn nullifies the result of Christ’s death and resurrection, which in turn denies the power of the cross that was meant to bring the Holy Spirit. Their labour is in vain, and their Christ died in vain because their version of a walk of faith is imputed being already counted as righteous. You don’t have to do righteousness, rather you just have to 'believe.'
The Cherry Picking & Twisting of Romans 4
Of course, as professional cherry pickers of Scripture verses, the Trinitarian will reference Romans 4 and butcher it to match their delusional presuppositions.
What then shall we say Abraham our father discovered according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has ground of boasting, but not toward God. For what does the Scripture say? “And ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” – Romans 4:1-3
Could it be that simple; we just believe and it is counted to us as righteousness without doing righteousness?
NOW TO THE ONE WORKING, the reward is not reckoned according to grace, but according to debt. – Romans 4:4
Here the Trinitarian justifies that to do any works of righteousness would cancel out grace. The only logical conclusion in their ideology is that they must deem themselves as sinners so that grace will abound.
What the passage really means is that if we are rewarded for our works, then it is earned, not a gift. Paul is not saying to abstain from works of righteousness so we can receive grace.
However, TO THE ONE NOT WORKING, BUT BELIEVING on the One justifying the ungodly, his faith is reckoned for righteousness – Romans 4:5
This verse is twisted to mean that we don’t have to do works of righteousness, but can simply believe.
Anyone who says otherwise who does works of righteousness are deemed as not having faith being under the Law.
We can see the inversion of the Gospel taking place by Trinitarian eisegesis of Scripture to promote an antichrist doctrine. True faith is equated as being 'ungodly,' and being ungodly is deemed as having faith by imputation.
Can you see why Martin Luther said, 'Sin boldly?'
What we have today within the modern church system is a focus away from Christ, his Kingdom and the fruit of righteousness to the promotion and marketing of man-made doctrines. The Way has been turned into 'Doctrianity' where celebrity theologians have usurped the teachings of Christ and the apostles for ones of their own making.
Their inverted Gospel promotes sin and ungodliness as 'faith.'
Those who do walk and believe that they can attain righteousness and sinlessness are the ones who are deemed not having faith. The Gospel is turned upside down and backwards and it is called 'following Christ.'
Just as David also declares the blessedness of the man to whom God CREDITS RIGHTEOUSNESS APART FROM WORKS: - Romans 4:6
Here Paul comments on how God imputes righteousness outside of 'works.' In the Trinitarian mind, they believe that this verse is saying that someone who does no works is blessed.
Do you see how ludicrous the notion is to believe that you can receive God’s blessings even though you do no works of righteousness?
“BLESSED are those whose LAWLESS DEEDS ARE FORGIVEN, AND WHOSE SINS ARE COVERED – Romans 4:7
By the eisegesis of the Trinitarian, they believe that God will reward and bless them even though they have no works of righteousness.
BLESSED is the man against whom THE LORD WILL NOT COUNT HIS SIN.” – Romans 4:8
The delusion can go on and on believing that to simply believe on him is counted as righteousness.
Those who seek to do the works of righteousness are deemed 'fallen' and not in the faith.
Reading the passages in Romans 4 with indoctrinated lenses negates the full counsel of Scripture, and ignores some important facts.
First, the result of Abraham’s faith was by works of righteousness.
When Abraham believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness, it was during the time before the Law was given.
Second, when Paul speaks of 'works,' he was not talking about works of righteousness by faith, but works of the Law.
Within the church system there are really only two forms of 'righteousness.' It either comes by works of the Law, or by imputed righteousness. They fail to understand that neither of these today come from the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
It is the true works of righteousness in love that comes by walking in faith by the Spirit.
Is this blessing then only for the CIRCUMCISED, or also for the UNCIRCUMCISED? For we say that faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness. – Romans 4:9
This passage states Abraham’s righteousness was 'imputed' without the works of the Law (uncircumcised). This means that his 'imputed' righteousness was given to him before the Law of circumcision was given.
How then was it counted to him? Was it before or after he had been circumcised? It was not after, but BEFORE he was circumcised. – Romans 4:10
Paul was not stating that Abraham had no works of righteousness; he was stating that he had 'imputed' righteousness before he obeyed the Law of circumcision.
He received the sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he HAD BY FAITH WHILE HE WAS STILL UNCIRCUMCISED. The purpose was to make him the father of all who believe without being circumcised, so that righteousness would be COUNTED to them as well – Romans 4:11
Paul is speaking here that his righteousness is 'imputed' by faith, rather than by works of the Law.
And to make him the father of the circumcised who are not merely circumcised but who also walk in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had BEFORE HE WAS CIRCUMCISED. For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world DID NOT COME THROUGH THE LAW BUT THROUGH THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF FAITH. – Romans 4:12-13
Are we to believe that Abraham had no righteousness, but was only counted as righteous because he believed. The fact is that Abraham’s faith (belief) brought great works of righteousness, not works of keeping the Law.
For if it is the ADHERENTS OF THE LAW who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. – Romans 4:14
This is the clincher for the Trinitarian who twists the Scriptures to say that to do works of righteousness means that you are cancelling grace, or the promise. However, the passage is not talking about true works of righteousness by faith through love, but the dead works of the Law.
Abraham’s great deeds of faith did not come by being obedient to the written Law, but were born as a result of his faith. The effort of the Trinitarian Scripture twister is exposed as being in vain because Abraham was someone who did works of righteousness. To say he just 'believed' and did no works is unfounded in the passage of Romans 4.
For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression. That is why it depends on FAITH, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also TO THE ONE WHO SHARES THE FAITH OF ABRAHAM, who is the father of us all, as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”....
...”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. In hope he believed against hope, that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.” He did not weaken IN FAITH when he considered his own body, which was as good as dead (since he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah’s womb...
...No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he GREW STRONG IN HIS FAITH as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. – Romans 4:15-21
From reading through this lengthy passage, we find the end result of Abraham’s faith. It had nothing to do with obeying by the works of the Law, but obedience in his works of faith before God.
By FAITH Abraham OBEYED when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By FAITH he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. – Hebrews 11:8-10
The Righteousness that comes by Faith
Righteousness that comes by faith comes from being obedient to God. When we repent and choose to follow Christ, his righteousness is 'imputed' to us with the genuine intention to walk in obedience to his ways. Right here is where Trinitarian doctrine stops. In their lip service doctrine, they remain in 'imputation' through the blood, but never press onwards and forwards into righteousness claiming victory that comes by walking in faith, just as Christ did.
The faith of Abraham was made perfect by works of obedience by faith. That is why it is stated in James that faith alone without works is dead.
So also FAITH BY ITSELF, IF IT DOES NOT HAVE WORKS, IS DEAD. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? Was not Abraham our father JUSTIFIED BY WORKS when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar?
You see that FAITH WAS ACTIVE ALONG WITH HIS WORKS, and FAITH WAS COMPLETED BY HIS WORKS; and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham BELIEVED God, and IT WAS COUNTED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS”—and he was called a friend of God. You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. – James 2:17-24
When somebody says that they cannot stop sinning or do not have to stop sinning, they are saying that only Christ could live sinless.
If that is the case, Christ is not Lord over their flesh.
The ekklesia of Christ have been bought with a price and their flesh no longer belongs to them, but to the Lord. To believe that you are free to do whatever you want because of imputed righteousness means that your body does not belong to the Lord voiding any victory over sin.
The cross is not only about being offered imputed righteousness, but having the power to be free from sin. The true Gospel is about having the ability in this life to overcome sin. True faith brings true righteousness, not just 'imputed' righteousness.
How many times have you heard from the pulpit that righteousness is not about the Law or works, but by grace?
This is Churchianity 101, but something is missing in their false doctrine.
Can you guess what it is?
What they totally miss is that true grace comes through faith that brings good works of righteousness.
The only 'righteousness' they hold onto is imputed. It is meant to 'atone' for their sins, but they fail to understand that this kind of righteousness was only available under the Law. They remain in their flesh void of victory over sin and at the same time giving lip service to Christ. They must resort to a 'righteousness' that comes by the Law or by imputation.
The consequence of believing in the Trinity is a rejection of the true Gospel of Christ who came to give us life by having faith in him. The result will bear the fruit of righteousness through obedience as we press onwards being perfected in him by the Spirit.
To believe in the Trinity doctrine is to believe in another Christ and another Gospel.
You can believe that you can have victory and do works of righteousness, or you can believe that your supposed 'righteousness' and 'victory' is imputed to you and it is all finished. All you have to do is be a good pew warmer and fill the offering basket and simply 'believe' being secure in your faith.
My hope is that you continue to investigate the Trinity doctrine for yourself because what is behind the curtain of this doctrine is deceptively sinister.
Do you believe the "gospel" of the Trinity doctrine is inversion of the true Gospel?
- Church Doctrine endorses the License to Sin Doctrine
There is a deception that is in the Church system that believes Jesus Christ’s blood has covered all the believers sins from the past, present and the future.
- Can You Be Perfect in this Lifetime?
This article will attempt to explore the definition of the term “perfect” according to a Scriptural understanding, rather than the eisegesis of appealing to popular religious opinions.
- Jesus Christ was a Man just like You and I
Was Jesus Christ simply a human? Was He God? Was He a demigod? Many have preconceived ideas and opinions concerning Jesus Christ when they read Scripture because of the English translated words.
