The Trinity Doctrine is Illogical

Updated on December 21, 2018

My goal is to write articles that go against the flow to pique discussion, offer a different perspective and connect some dots.

The Trinity doctrine is the foundation of the modern church system. The seminaries of men birth their church clergy to indoctrinate the masses by twisting Scripture to worship a God whom they call a 'Trinity.' Unfortunately, many take their beliefs for granted without questioning what they have been taught. When one critically looks at the Trinity doctrine, it becomes a theory much like evolution that cannot be substantiated. On the surface, Trinity doctrine may seem plausible, but it must use eisegesis, lots of bias and cherry-picked Scripture verses. However, under critical examination when the entirety of Scripture is taken into consideration, the Trinity is nowhere to be found.

Those that teach the Trinity have to resort to words and explanations that are not found anywhere in Scripture in an attempt to explain something that is illogical and cannot be proven. The Trinity is merely a hypothesis formulated by ecclesiastical men using conjecture that must be imagined into Biblical text and theorized through guesswork.

Would anyone base their spirituality on human invention and speculation?

It seems so.

With the modern church system, esteemed titled men are deemed to be the professional teachers and purveyors of man-made doctrine where they convey a conception that has been systematically developed into a paradoxical notion. When we rely on select men to give their renditions of God, we find that Trinity dogma becomes an unintelligible expression that becomes meaningless, incoherent, contradictory and nonsensical.

1+1+1 = 1
1+1+1 = 1

Fitting Square Pegs Into Round Holes

In order for the Trinity doctrine to fit into Scripture, it must be butchered by adding or taking away from Scripture. The worst culprits are men who are part of the modern church system because they fail to rightly divide the word of truth and do not use the pattern of sound words. In fact, it is the traditions of men that perpetuate a futile exercise of claiming 1+1+1 = 1.

To even attempt to understand the Trinity, one would have to spend endless amounts of hours of theological speculations and still must concede that it is a paradox and illogical.

It is interesting that those who deny the Trinity are deemed as heretics or part of a cult. The reality is that ad hominem attacks are all the ammunition that they have against anyone poking holes in their man-made theories.

Why would anyone rely on church clergy and creeds to tell them what to believe in?

We are all capable in this day and age of looking into Scripture and testing it with the original languages to find the truth for ourselves.

Man-made doctrine.
Man-made doctrine.

The theory of modern Christianity is based on the terminologies and concepts of the Trinity that are missing from Scripture. Rather, they have originated and were conceived in the minds of men. These men do not understand the words of Christ because they believe they are wise in their own theories, hypotheses, speculations, notions, conjecture, guesswork and a lot of wishful thinking in the conveyance of their doctrine.

Isn’t it ironic that they have framed credentials upon their walls, but Scripture give them no credence anywhere?

The Fallible Claims

Men with doctorates of Divinity use their imaginations with unbiblical concepts and call it 'truth.' Many have fallen for their presentations explaining the concept of what 'triune' means, but you will find nowhere in the interlinear, dictionaries and lexicons where God (Elohim) means three in one.

The lack of exegesis is an epidemic among self-professed church ministers. In the real world, unscholarly presentations on various different subjects would rip apart their works of fiction to shreds.

There are many Scripture verses that seem to allude a Trinity, but these are simply cherry-picked illusions that have been masterfully compiled to deceive the gullible into believing God is a hypostasis of a triunity or some other form of gobbledygook.

Supposed Popular 'Proof' Texts

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and THESE THREE ARE ONE. – 1 John 5:7

The problem with this above verse is that it is not Scripture at all. Many Bibles do not contain these words because they have been proven to have been added. The evidence reveals that this verse is not adequately supported by the original manuscripts. In fact, it does not appear in any manuscript pre fifteenth century.

I and my Father ARE ONE. – John 10:30

Does 1+1= 1?

If we apply logic, we should understand that anything that is of or from something is not the same thing no matter who or what it is.

A father and his son cannot be the same person, but what can be said is that different people can be one in unity, purpose and even in spirit.

Jesus never said, 'I and my Father are one God,' but this is how Trinitarians cherry-pick verses to impose their eisegesis into something that is not there. It is unfortunate that even little children could understand what is revealed in the following text.

For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but ONE GOD, THE FATHER, of whom are all things, and we in him; AND ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST, by whom are all things, and we by him. – 1 Corinthians 8:5-6

1+1=2. The New Testament passage reveals two different entities. The math is unbelievably easy, but when talking to the church officials, they will say that we need to throw our brains away and believe their fairy tales that utterly defies logical comprehension.

When we throw out church indoctrination and simply read the words and do the simple math, the logical conclusion couldn’t be easier. We don’t have to guess or speculate unless we allow others to think for us.

For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I CAME OUT from God. I CAME FORTH from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. – John 16:27-28

Jesus did not come out from the Trinity.

The Trinitarian will use their favourite pet verses to allude to a Trinity, but with all the verses that they must perform eisegesis on their own texts.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT – Matthew 28:19

Where is there proof of three in one Trinity?

Does mentioning three things make them three separate persons of a multi-person God?

In Matthew, it says that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit. If the Holy Spirit is a separate person from the Father, then it would make the Holy Spirit the 'Father' rather than the Father.

A Simple Test on the Concept of Hypostatic Union

It is interesting that the Trinitarians insist on using the term 'God the Son,' yet with simple reading, the Son of God is quite evident as the proper title in Scripture.

The foundation of the Trinitarian faith is a mystery as they say. They insist on using unscriptural words (a language of mystery) to define what they believe and even have their own 'math' they like to use.

A simple test to see whether the phrase 'hypostatic union' is possible is to try to fill one glass (100%) with milk up to the brim. Then try filling that very same glass with an equal amount (100%) of water.

After you clean up the mess that you have made, take another glass and fill it 50% with milk and then add 50% water to the same glass bringing the glass to 100% full.

Then think about whether it is possible to have both 100% man and 100% God at the same time.

The result of the experiment should conclude that when one liquid is diminished or elevated, it is impossible to be fully either at the same time in one vessel. It would be illogical, a contradiction of substance.

Here is is an interesting conversation.

Joe asked a Trinitarian for five dollars, and he responded, 'I don’t have five dollars.' However, Joe noticed that he was holding a five dollar bill in his hand.

He then questioned him and asked, 'Why did you lie to me?'

The Trinitarian replied, 'When I said I didn’t have five dollars, I meant that in my right hand I did not have it. However, it is true that in my left hand I do have five dollars.'

Joe responded, 'Either you have the five dollars, or not.'

'How can you have, and then not have five dollars at the same time?'

      P&N, if there is no triunity then Jesus was just a man then?

      I follow none of these, nor any other religious groups that have their origins in any man or woman. I consider myself among the Ekklesia and following the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Apostles and the principles of the Kingdom of God as set forth in Scripture.
