The Fixed New Testament Text is a Huge Problem for Trinitarianism

The Fixed New Testament Text is a Huge Problem for Trinitarianism

Since the Trinity Doctrine is supposed to be the main, or primary teaching, of Christianity, why is it so disputed down to this day?

Accurate history tells us that:

(1) Various Trinities were taught and believed in many pagan religions prior to Jesus, going all the way back to ancient Babylon, 3,000 years before Christ!

(2) The Bible’s Old Testament canon closed about 400 BCE, saying nothing about any Trinity

(3) The Bible’s New Testament canon closed about 100 CE, also lacking any mention of any Trinity read more

Why Does God Allow Suffering?

Why Does God Allow Suffering?

God created the first humans perfect (Deuteronomy 32:4,5; Job 14:4; Ecclesiastes 7:29). If Adam and Eve had obeyed God, there would never have been suffering or problems. They were warned of the dire consequences of disobedience (Genesis 2:16,17). Yet, they chose to believe lies, and rejected God’s truthful warnings (Genesis 3:1-6; John 8:44). God mercifully allowed humans to live long enough to produce the human race, albeit with inherited sin (Romans 8:21; 5:12). But, God allowed the consequences of sin to develop, without his intervention. Why? Because to interfere with the natural results of sin would be to help Satan’s cause, that is, that people could violate God’s standards with impunity (Genesis 3:4,5; John 8:44). read more

Daniel’s Prophecy of Antiochus IV Epiphanes—Extremely Accurate!

Daniel’s Prophecy of Antiochus IV Epiphanes—Extremely Accurate!

Other articles on this site have provided documented evidence that the Book of Daniel was written in the 500’s BCE, and accurately foretold details of the exploits Syrian King Antiochus IV Epiphanes, who was “the king of the north” for about 12 years. This article will discuss exactly what some of the scriptures in Daniel 11 foretold, and how they were fulfilled.

“The next to come to power will be a despicable man who is not in line for royal succession. He will slip in when least expected and take over the kingdom by¬†flattery and intrigue”—Daniel 11:21 NLT. read more

John 3:16 & THE GOSPEL— ALL ABOUT JESUS DEATH & OUR RESPONSE

John 3:16 & THE GOSPEL— ALL ABOUT JESUS DEATH & OUR RESPONSE

On November 8, 2018, an article was posted on Patheos entitled, “Why John 3:16 Isn’t About The Crucifixion“:

In preparation for an upcoming online debate about PSA [Penal Substitutionary Atonement] Theory, I started wondering whether or not Jesus, or any of the Gospel authors, specifically communicated the Gospel as being about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins, or to appease the wrath of God, etc.

In the process of exploring this question, I started with John 3:16 because, growing up, I had always equated it with the crucifixion. However, I realized that this entire conversation has nothing to do with the crucifixion, nor does it even mention the death of Jesus at all. read more

WHO IS THE ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN CHRISTIANS AND GOD?

WHO IS THE ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN CHRISTIANS AND GOD?

Christian denominations have differing views on the mediator between them and God. For example, Catholics teach that Christians must go through their priesthood to have a relationship with God. Others teach that one can only have a relationship with God through their particular denomination, or church. Some have even thought, or taught that a relationship with God was only possible through one particular pastor.

This idea was developed with the group today known as Jehovah’s Witnesses starting in the 1890’s around their Founder, Pastor C. T. Russell. He became known among them as “the faithful and wise servant” (Mt 24:45 KJV), “the one that God was using to give true spiritual food to mankind.” read more

Jesus the Mediatior – Trinitarian Views

Jesus the Mediatior – Trinitarian Views

The Bible clearly says that Jesus Christ is the mediator between God and humans. But Trinitarians claim that Jesus is God. How do they explain this contradiction?

Jesus the Mediator
Jesus is the Mediator between God and man. Yet Trinitarians claim Jesus is God.

Trinitarians say: “Jesus MUST be God in order to be our mediator.”

This is the crux of their argument. Trinitarians change the meaning of mediator, since Jesus being the mediator between humans and God (1 Tim 2:5) destroys their Trinity idol. (2 Cor 10:3-4)

By definition, a mediator is neither of the two parties for whom he mediates. The foundation of their argument against the plain truth of 1 Tim 2:5 therefore rests on a bogus premise. Thus, their entire argument fails. read more

Why Jesus – Not God – Died For Our Sins

Why Jesus – Not God – Died For Our Sins

The Bible says God cannot die. Yet Trinitarians assert that Jesus must be God himself in order to die for the sins of mankind stands in stark contradiction to all scriptural evidence. It was Jesus, not God, that died.

Jesus, not God
It was Jesus – not God – who died for the sins of mankind

“Lord, are you not from everlasting? My God, my Holy One, you will never die. You, Lord, have appointed them to execute judgment; you, my Rock, have ordained them to punish.” (Hab 1:12)

From this scripture, we can see that it is impossible that Jesus could be the God who would die for the sins of mankind, since the prophecy of Habakkuk was written over 600 years prior to Jesus and clearly states that God will never die. read more

Catholic Claims About Purgatory vs. the Bible

Catholic Claims About Purgatory vs. the Bible

Purgatory is a Catholic doctrine which teaches there is an intermediate state after physical death in which some of those ultimately destined for heaven must first undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven, holding that certain offenses can be forgiven in this age, but certain others in the age to come. But what does the Bible teach? Let’s compare some Catholic claims about the doctrine of Purgatory to the Scriptures.

Purgatory
Is the doctrine of Purgatory a true teaching?

Catholics claim:

Those that build their foundations on wood, grass or straw will be burned when we are purified to go to purgatory. Yet they will saved though only as men are saved by passing through fire. All people who go to purgatory will be saved though suffering (fire). read more

Titus – God and Jesus – Part of a Trinity?

Titus – God and Jesus – Part of a Trinity?

Are God and Jesus Part of a Trinity? Is Jesus God? Let’s take a quick look at the Bible book of Titus to find some clues to these answers.

Titus
What does the Book of Titus say about Jesus and God?

“Paul , a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ.” (Tit 1:1 NIV) If Jesus is God, why are God and Jesus are referred to separately?

“Grace and peace from God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Savior.” (Tit 1:4 NIV) God is named as Father – Jesus is separate and distinct from God.

“As we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of the great God and of our Savior Jesus Christ.” (Tit 2:13 NAB) God and Jesus are spoken of a separate and distinct yet again. read more
