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.
