The point of this study is to examine one of the most accepted doctrines in Christianity, namely the Trinity Doctrine. This study will test the doctrine with scripture to see if it is really taught in the bible.

Most Christians today believe that God is a Trinity and many agree that the Trinity Doctrine is not only a major doctrine of Christianity, but perhaps even the foundation of Christianity. This study will take an indepth look at verses that appear to contradict this doctrine and scriptures that are used to prove the doctrine. We will also look at some Pre-Nicene writings from the 2nd century to see if they also taught the Trinity before it was made an official doctrine. Then we will take a look at the history of the Trinity Doctrine and list important events that helped develop this doctrine.

This extensive writing will give you and in-depth look at this subject so that you can weigh up for yourself what is true. The aim is to help you in understanding the foundation of true faith in God and for you to be ready to give an answer at anytime as to what you believe.

According to scripture, the purpose of scripture is to guide, teach, and correct us on matters of doctrine and conduct. To be humble and teachable is to be wise and such a person would rejoice when both scripture affirms and corrects us because an affirmation shows that we already possess these truths and corrections gives us the opportunity to possess these truths. Both are good.

I think it is fair to say that that most Christians today who believe in the Trinity Doctrine have never really checked it out to see if what they believe is taught in scripture. Many assume that it must be correct because it is what most churches teach and this is perhaps the doctrine that most churches have in common. In addition to this doctrine’s wide acceptance, many people think it is wrong to question doctrines like this because it shows doubt. In truth however, we are suppose to test all teaching and spirits, so that we do not become deceived.

Acts 17:11
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Searching the scriptures to see if what we believe is true is absolutely encouraged in scripture and as Christians we should also be ready to provide a reason for the things that we believe. In order to know what we believe, it requires more than parroting a doctrine. You need to understand it in order to know whether it is true or not.

1 Peter 3:15
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

The reality is that many Christians who accept the doctrine of the Trinity, accepted it with little questioning and even to this day they do not understand it. It is often new believers who wonder how Jesus can be the son of God and also be that God that he is the son of. Often the response to such questioning is usually met with a reply along the lines of, ‘God is a mystery and beyond our thinking’. While this is true, scripture does reveal God to us with the intention that we understand these scriptures. Thus if the bible teaches that God is a Trinity, then by that reason, it is suppose to be understandable.

Of those who believe the Trinity Doctrine there appears to be differing ways to describe how God can be three and yet one. Some believe that God is a being that shows himself in 3 different ways like water can be ice, steam, or liquid. Others believe that the Trinity is made up of 3 distinct personalities and these 3 are in unity of substance and love and purpose. This last explanation is probably the most common and it is the accepted version of the Trinity Doctrine.

Before moving on, I think it would be good to give the official explanation of the Trinity Doctrine. The doctrine basically says that there is one God.
The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God.
Hence God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
These three persons make up one God. But rather than each being one-third of God, each person is co-equal and co-eternal and 100% God. The following diagram explains the Trinity Doctrine quite well.

This concludes the introduction to this study. Let’s now take an in-depth look at what scripture says about who and what God is. Click on the ‘Next Page’ button below to navigate your way through this teaching. Oh, and be prepared to be challenged.

    hi

    answer to #1)

    Mt 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
    Mt 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
    Mt 28:20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

    A) so Jesus received all authority from the father ,this would mean that HE IS NOT EQUAL TO THE FATHER AND THAT HE ALSO INDEPENDENT OF THE FATHER ;for the one that gives is higher than the one that receives ;

    B) this scriptures seem not doing anything and is full of mystery ;for one,not one disciples as been recorded obeying to those orders in the all of the NT ;secondly this verse does not appear in the Hebrew version of Mathew ,

    C) also it is the only verse that talks about the HOLY SPIRIT having a personal name in which we can be baptized in ,

    D) now let say we remove this part : ” baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”

    so the scriptures would read ;

    Mt 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
    Mt 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
    Mt 28:20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” NOW THIS SCRIPTURES SEEMS TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE ENTIRE SCRIPTURES .

    E) there is no other similar scripture in the entire bible where it says this ; ” baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”

    FOR NEVER DID THE HOLY SPIRIT ad been given a personal name ;for the spirit of truth HIS OF GOD ,it is a tool that GOD almighty uses to do Miracles/help others/show others the truth / protect/guides/comfort /counsels/etc…

    part B of # 1

    {1 John 5:6-8

    This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.}}

    my answer to # 1 B

    1Jn 5:1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
    1Jn 5:2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
    1Jn 5:3 This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
    1Jn 5:4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
    1Jn 5:5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
    1Jn 5:6 This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
    1Jn 5:7 For there are three that testify:
    1Jn 5:8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
    1Jn 5:9 We accept man’s testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son.
    1Jn 5:10 Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
    1Jn 5:11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    1Jn 5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

    1Jn 5:13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
    1Jn 5:14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

    A)

    Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
    1Jn 5:7 For there are three that testify:
    1Jn 5:8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.

    first we have to establish what is the WATER BY WHICH JESUS COMES

    secondly we have to establish what IS THE BLOOD BY WHICH HE CAME

    third we have to establish what is or who his THE SPIRIT THAT TESTIFIED (BECAUSE THE SPIRIT IS THE TRUTH )

    what would be the meaning of the water ? answer ; “true knowledge ”

    PS 22:14 I am poured out like water,
    And all my bones are out of joint;
    My heart is like wax;
    It is melted within me.

    PS 42:1 As the deer pants for the water brooks,
    So my soul pants for You, O God.

    Jn 4:14 but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

    what would be the meaning of the blood ? answer :

    Lk 24:6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:
    Lk 24:7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”
    Lk 24:8 Then they remembered his words.

    Lk 24:25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!
    Lk 24:26 Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”
    Lk 24:27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

    what would be that spirit that testified and yet is truth ? answer ;

    all the prophecies that the Christ ad to be fulfill to be recognized as being the true Christ ,for as Peter says ; 2Pe 1:20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation.
    2Pe 1:21 For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

    for the above reasons the trinity does not exist in scriptures,
