The Trinity Doctrine Destroys the Faith of Christ
The Trinity doctrine is the foundation of Christendom, but many are unaware of how this doctrine destroys the Gospel and the faith of Christ. Many have never challenged the doctrine for themselves to see if it stands the test of the full counsel of Scripture. Of course, there are many verses that seem to affirm the Trinity doctrine and many have been indoctrinated into what they believe to be irrefutable 'truth.'
The testament Christ and the apostles reveals that they sacrificed their lives to bring an untainted Gospel message to the world. Unfortunately, the Trinity doctrine has bewitched most of the religious world by making Christ to be God. What most fail to understand is that their doctrine ultimately disqualifies Christ as the seed and heir of Abraham by faith.
The Trinity Doctrine takes Faith out of the Equation
Many find it blasphemous to state that Christ was just a man and not God incarnate, but the irony is they are the ones actually diminishing him by destroying the purpose of his ministry given to him by his Father. Satan has blinded most of the world from what true faith in Christ can do for mankind. Christ is the ultimate example of a man who lived by faith in everything he did. He was a shining light as he walked in the ministry of his Father putting his faith into action.
Those who hold to the Trinity doctrine will state that Christ is ‘God the Son’ where all the things he did as part of his ministry was in the cooperation of the Trinity working together. They fail to take into consideration that to believe that Christ is God takes faith out of the equation all together.
It is because the Trinitarian doctrine implies that we cannot be like Christ because 'God the Son' knew all things and did not need to have faith because he was, is and has always been God.
To believe that Christ is deity undermines his sole purpose to show us the example of how a Godly man should walk by following in his footsteps.
How could we even aspire to be like Christ if he is God?
Trinity dogma ultimately leads to only two conclusions. If you believe that Christ is God, then you will have to aspire to be as God. This is arrogance and pride.
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds! I will make myself like the Most High!" - Isaiah 14:14
Or, if you believe that Christ is God, then you can never attain to be like Christ because 'he is God.' This is defeat.
I said therefore to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am he, you will die in your sins." - John 8:24
It would be a futile exercise. We may be able to look like Christ, but still could never be truly like him because he is God. It would be like a tree teaching us how to be a 'tree.' We could make ourselves look like a 'tree,' but could never be a true and genuine tree.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the OUTSIDE of the cup and the plate, but INSIDE they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the INSIDE of the cup and the plate, that the OUTSIDE also may be clean. – Matthew 23:25-26
Obviously, just looking like Christ would not be enough because he commanded us to live and walk like he did.
Making our outside look like 'God the Son' without being God would be hypocrisy would it not?
Looking like a 'tree' on the outside would not be enough if the tree stated that we also have to make our inside look like a tree also. If we simply looked like a 'tree branch,' but not being a real tree branch, how would we be able to thrive and bear fruit as a genuine tree does?
“I am THE TRUE VINE, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. AS THE BRANCH CANNOT BEAR FRUIT BY ITSELF, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches.
Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that BEARS MUCH FRUIT, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you BEAR MUCH FRUIT and SO PROVE TO BE MY DISCIPLES. – John 15:1-8
Faith in Christ, or the Faith of Christ?
There are many sermons delivered upon the pulpits within the man-driven church system that teach the doctrine of 'God the Son,' but you will never hear about the great example of faith that Christ demonstrated in the New Testament. The reason is that 'God the Son' does not need faith. If Christ is Yahweh, then he would not need any faith. To believe in the Trinity means that Christ is not presented as a man who was full of faith who demonstrated great miracles as part of his ministry.
If Christ is God, then he would not need great faith to do miracles, but if Christ was a man, then he would need great faith to be able to do the will of his Father.
Many will retort, 'heresy, Jesus was a God/man!'
Again, the irony is they have bought into a false image of the Messiah. They have been blinded and unable to grasp what the true power of Christ represented being a man of faith.
Let’s get into the details of what this all means.
Christ overcame his flesh by proving what no man has been able to prove that through faith he was able to please Yahweh, his Father.
If our Messiah is God, then Christ’s ability to please Him is not an example for us to follow because the Trinity doctrine would have us imagine that God is pleased with himself and would never offend himself with sin.
A Nonsensical 'Proof' Verse
But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. YOU HAVE LOVED RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HATED WICKEDNESS; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.” – Hebrews 1:8-9
How many times have these verses been quoted by a Trinitarian to 'prove' that God is speaking of 'God the Son' by letting everyone know that he is also Yahweh too?
Let's demonstrate how meaningless this text would be if that were the case.
What would be the point of these verses if God was praising the Son because he 'loved righteousness and hated wickedness' if he was already God?
It would be pointless.
Why would God say that he anointed Himself as 'God the Son' if he already is God?
Isn’t it already a given that God would do nothing else but love righteousness and hate iniquity?
We already know that God cannot be tempted to do any evil.
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED WITH EVIL, and he himself tempts no one. – James 1:12
Think about it, if Christ is God, then why would he have to prove himself to himself by being obedient to death before he himself could highly exalt himself?
And being found in appearance AS A MAN, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross. Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place, and gave Him the name above all names – Philippians 2:8-9
If Christ is Yahweh from the beginning, then why would he have to prove himself to himself before being given the name above all names?
If Christ is righteous because he is Yahweh, then there would be absolutely no doubt of his obedience to himself by hanging on the stake.
If God knows his own capabilities, then why does God have to see his own obedience in action?
The True Gospel
When we take a good look at the genuine Gospel, it is about Christ being obedient for our benefit rather than God’s. Paul stated earlier in Philippians 2:5,
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus
It becomes obvious that Christ’s demonstration of obedience was for us and an example for us to follow.
If Christ is Yahweh and is obedient because he is God, he would not be an example for us to follow.
It is because we do not have the ease of drawing off of 'Godly powers' because we are called to walk by faith. 'God the Son' would need no faith to perform works of righteousness because he was already God.
Think about it, how could Christ be an example to us of having righteousness without having any faith?
The Apostles taught that the promised seed that would come through Abraham would come by faith, not by works of the Law.
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 4:13
How many times do we hear that Christ was righteous by the Law. Of course! He is supposedly God and was the only one who kept it perfectly!
There is a problem with this doctrine,
According to false Trintarian doctrine, the promise fulfilled by the 'seed' came by obeying the Law perfectly, not by faith.
Do you see the problem here? Paul stated that is was not through the Law, but by faith!
Trinity doctrine states that 'God the Son' fulfilled the promises by obeying the Law perfectly because he is God. If that is the case, the Trinitarian Jesus does not qualify as the seed of promise because Paul stated that the promise would be fulfilled by faith, not by the works of the Law.
For if those who live by the Law are heirs, FAITH IS USELESS AND THE PROMISE IS WORTHLESS – Romans 4:14
And if we are children, then we are heirs: heirs of God and CO-HEIRS WITH CHRIST--if indeed we suffer with Him, so that we may also be glorified with Him. – Romans 8:17
It states in Scripture that we are co-heirs with Christ, but if he was 'highly exalted' as 'God the Son' by keeping the Law perfectly, then he would be heir by the Law, not by faith.
That would mean the promises are nullified and worthless.
The seed that came by Abraham through faith was Christ our Saviour.
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. For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. – Romans 4:13-14
If Christ is heir by the works of the Law, then faith is cancelled out.
So, we must conclude that Christ was heir by faith. It was not about that he kept the Law perfectly because he was God because that would cancel faith out and void the promise.
FOR IF THE INHERITANCE COMES BY THE LAW, IT NO LONGER COMES BY PROMISE; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise. – Galatians 3:18
If Christ received his inheritance by keeping the Law as 'God the Son,' then the inheritance is not by promise, but must be by works of the Law. It would follow then that since we are co-heirs with him, then we also receive our inheritance in the same manner by keeping the Law perfectly also.
See the problem?
Most will agree that this is impossible to do, but the Trinitarian will go on to say that Christ was able to do it because he is God. If that is the case, he did not receive his inheritance by faith and we cannot be co-heirs with him. 'God the Son' did not need faith, but by his own divine power as God kept the Law perfectly.
According to the full counsel of Scripture, to believe in the Trinity doctrine cancels out our faith and our inheritance.
Many Trinitarians don’t even understand the ramifications of their doctrine. They love to talk about their 'faith in Christ,' but you will never hear them talk about the 'faith of Christ' because 'God the Son' they believe in did not need faith.
However, the apostles had something different to say.
Nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by works of law, except through faith from Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith from Christ, and not by works of the Law, because BY WORKS OF THE LAW NOT ANY FLESH WILL BE JUSTIFIED. – Galatians 2:16
Take note, it says 'not any flesh' is justified by the Law. This flesh would also include Christ’s flesh.
Was not Christ's flesh and blood the same as our flesh and blood?
That would mean he also must be justified by faith and not of works of the Law.
Trinitarian's love to talk about their 'belief in Christ,' but fail in their understanding of what we are to believe about him. Big difference! To have faith of Christ means to believe in the same power that he demonstrated. We too can have the same power to overcome sin and live righteously by faith.
But if seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves also have been found sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin? Never may it be! For if I build again these things that I had torn down, I PROVE MYSELF A TRANSGRESSOR. - Galatians 2:17-18
Justified by Faith
The Trinitarian will not understand that to be justified by faith means to obey Christ by following his example by living as he lived. He lived by faith. To be found a sinner by seeking to be justified by faith negates that Christ is in charge of your life. 'Is Christ the minister of sin?'
How many times do you hear people say they are justified by the blood of Christ by his death and resurrection, yet hearing nothing about repentance or faith?
This is in direct contradiction to the apostle’s teaching.
Therefore, HAVING BEEN JUSTIFIED BY FAITH, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access BY FAITH into this grace in which we stand; and we boast in the hope of the glory of God. – Romans 5:1-2
The Trinitarian will state that we are not justified by anything we do. It is not about faith, but only by 'the blood” of Christ.' They believe that justification is about a ransom that has been paid. They will say God does not look at anything in the person, but something that has been done for the person (the blood) paid for their sin.
To believe in this false doctrine is to totally miss the purpose of the blood of Christ, which is to bring us faith so Christ can live through us. Christ in us! The Trinitarian will say that 'justification' is only about Christ paying for all (past, present and future) their sins with his blood.
This means that Christ died so they can still remain ungodly being 'justified' in their sins, yet walking in the righteousness of the faith of Christ is unheard of.
Many have twisted Romans 4:5 to their own liking by saying God only 'justifies' ungodly people, meaning that they must remain ungodly to be justified.
And to the one who does not work but believes in him who JUSTIFIES THE UNGODLY, his faith is counted as righteousness – Romans 4:5
Paul stated that God sometimes justifies the ungodly, but to say that God only justifies ungodly people is false. They do not consider that they are also calling Christ 'ungodly' because their Trinity 'proofs' shows evidence of the 'deity of Christ' being 'justified by the spirit.'
And confessedly, great is the mystery of godliness: Who was revealed in the flesh, was JUSTIFIED IN THE SPIRIT, was seen by angels, was proclaimed among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory. - 1 Timothy 3:16
Again, if God only justifies ungodly people, then why does Scripture also state that Christ was justified in the Spirit?
Here is the problem. The hallmark of what is called 'Christianity' is not about turning our backs on sin and walking righteously, but about be 'counted' as 'justified' by what Christ has done. This means that their version of 'justification' does not involve turning from sin, but rather being 'justified' while remaining in sin. Their version of 'repentance,' if mentioned at all is not about turning away from sin, but a 'change of mind' that is merely a feeling sorry for yourself. True repentance has no significance as they will openly confess that they will continue to sin because their definition of justification means that all their sins have already been paid for (past, present and future) while remaining ungodly. After all, only Christ could be sinless because he is God and could not sin.
Are you getting the picture yet?
But seek first the kingdom of God and his RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all these things will be added to you. - Matthew 6:33
Unfortunately, they know nothing about justification by faith by their open denial.
The false Gospel that is manifest almost everywhere today denies repentance, which is a walk of faith that brings a person to true justification in Christ. All you hear from them is 'justification' by blood, yet they ignore the significance of Christ’s blood that brought the Holy Spirit to help a man walk by faith in righteousness in all that he does. The Trinitarian must remove the 'faith of Christ' and replace it with what their version of Christ has done for them, rather than believing what Christ did through faith so that we also can do likewise.
To believe that Christ is God negates the example of faith of a man to follow. The Trinitarian Christ does not need faith because he is God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, BEING CONVINCED OF WHAT WE DO NOT SEE. – Hebrews 11:1
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and the FAITH OF JESUS. - Revelation 14:12
The Trinity doctrine destroys having the faith of Christ by making him out to be God. 'Justification' is just about having the penalty of sin paid for by the blood, yet continuing to remain ungodly. The Trinitarian will talk out of both sides of their mouths when pressed failing to understand that the deception of the antichrist doctrine that they vehemently defend by twisting and distorting Scripture through their indoctrinated presuppositions.
Beware of this false doctrine because it is the wide road that leads to destruction.
Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, "COME OUT OF HER, my people, so you will not take part in her sins and so you will not receive her plagues – Revelation 18:4
Do you believe that the Trinitarian doctrine is truth?
