I’m more and more persuaded that the Trinity/deity of Christ are doctrines tailor made to train you to throw logic away and be subservient to the philosopher kings calling themselves pastors. For instance this whole 100% God 100% man thing. Nothing can be 200%, so of necessity you always end up reducing the 200% to 100% and the 100% God 100% man to 50% God 50% man when explaining a specific text. Like Jesus praying, “that was his human HALF praying to God, not his God HALF.” Or Jesus being tempted “Jesus’ God HALF can’t be tempted so that was his human HALF.” Or Jesus being dead, “that was his human HALF that was dead because the God HALF could not be dead.” So we find that you are required to confess a 100%/100% breakdown, when in reality you will be arguing a 50%/50% breakdown when confronted by any specific text. Aside from the fact that this division of Jesus into two halves is Gnostic, there is also that fact that this is training to train you to check your brain at the door.
A video I found extremely interesting:
And another one:
We’re all familiar with 1 Timothy 3:15-16. I quote the ASV below:
but if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how men ought to behave themselves in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. (16) And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; He who was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the spirit, Seen of angels, Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
But today I was reading in the Emphatic Diaglott, which is a Greek-English interlinear. This interlinear presents the Greek text of Griesbach, a very famous Greek scholar from the early 1800s, whose text was considered at the time to be the most accurate printed Greek text. Interestingly, Greisbach’s punctuation does something that no modern translation (1900 and beyond) has followed. He punctuates the text so that the pillar and ground of the truth does not refer to the church but to the next verse. Editing the ASV to match Greisbach’s punctuation, we get:
but if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how men ought to behave themselves in the house of God, which is the church of the living God. The pillar and ground of the truth, (16) and without controversy great, is the mystery of godliness; He who was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the spirit, Seen of angels, Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
You end up with a statement that this little confession is the pillar and ground of the truth, and also unquestionably great.
The earlier comments White is referring to in the video are in the video below
On that video, I’ve posted two comments:
From now on, on the Internet, I think I will refer to Trinitarians as Cerberus worshipers. These annoying Papist Protestants who believe and push the Catholic Councils and Creeds, written and enforced by murderer bishops, rather than Scripture. A lot of people don’t know for some reason the bishops after the Nicene and Constantinople I councils had people who denied the Trinity burned at the stake, much like Calvin later did to Sevetus, but its true. The Trinity is a Pagan doctrine, invented by the Pagan Emperor Constantine, and foisted on Christendom by murder and persecution. Its high time to jettison this lie and stop worshiping a 3-headed dog.
He thinks Protestantism has come to be about Jesus only, but Hebrews says (Hebrews 2:3-4)
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
Hence the title of his sermon: GOD ALSO. A sermon on the neglect of the Father in modern Christianity, by an ex-Oneness.
The best and most respectful refutation of Trinitarianism on youtube.
The cross-examination is particularly humorous. James White essentially denies the Incarnation and the Trinity in order to keep his false doctrine of determinism.
This Catholic guy’s “documentary” on the Protestant doctrine of forensic justification makes many of the same points as Paul Dohse over at Paul’s Passing Thoughts. But I would like to see the two debating the points on which they disagree, because although Dohse says that Protestantism is a false gospel because it denies the rebirth and says righteousness is purely alien and outside of us, he nonetheless continues those very doctrines (denial of the new birth and separation of righteousness from us as something alien) by making a distinction or drawing a hard line between justification and sanctification (or as this guy terms it in his analogy, “locking them in different classrooms“). Pay particular attention to his diagram of the two classrooms with the fat red line dividing them, and compare it to Dohse’s constant alien righteousness diagram. (Notice also how 1 John 1:7-9 is the ultimate death nail to not only Piper’s but Dohse’s systems.)
Dohse’s alien righteousness diagram:
Dohse attacks Calvinists/Protestants for believing what is found in this diagram, namely the separation of justification and sanctification, but he teaches the exact same thing. How can he justify that? (Pardon the pun)
See John Calvin: Gnostic Extraordinaire for an example of Dohse using this diagram and bashing Protestants for believing it; and see What Your Sanctification Says About Your Justification: Is Your Gospel True or False? for an example of him nonetheless teaching exactly the same thing!
This is the same as the Catholic guy’s “two classrooms” diagram, which perfectly diagrams Dohse’s separation of justification and sanctification. The only difference is the use of a man vs a classroom on either side.
Pope Francis was chosen 7 months before Benedict resigned. The “election” was a fake, just like the one that elected Obama.
From a new story that came out on February 19th, 2015:
Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, former Vatican Secretary of State, has said he knew Benedict XVI was planning to resign “at least seven months” in advance – and that it was “not at all easy” to keep it a secret.
The cardinal made the revelation in a candid interview in which he offered a staunch defence of his record and his lifestyle – much criticised in the Italian press – since stepping down.
Asked if he was surprised by Benedict XVI’s resignation, the cardinal said: “I had guessed it, but put it out my thoughts. I knew long in advance, at least seven months before. And I had many doubts. We debated the topic at length after it seemed already decided. I told him: Holy Father, you must bestow upon us the third volume on Jesus of Nazareth and the encyclical of faith, before you sign things over to Pope Francis.”
I was originally made aware of the story from a post on http://biblefalseprophet.com/2015/02/20/cardinal-bertone-knew-of-resignation-of-pope-benedict-xvi-and-the-coming-pope-francis-7-months-in-advance/
Some Catholics have thought all along that Benedict was forced by some shady malevolent cardinals to resign…and if Francis was already chosen 7 months ahead of time, as this statement implies, then that may very well be true. The same NWO powers that are behind Obama are certainly behind this. After all, the agendas of the big O and the big F are the same: communism and you know what.
A Catholic blogger has been threatened by a lawsuit by a top Vatican official for commenting on the proceedings at the Vatican’s Synod against the Family. (i.e. where Pope “Who am I to judge?” plans to push through Obama’a agenda for the RCC.)
