Why God is NOT a Trinity
First of all, let me say that I do believe in the Holy Ghost, i am NOT denying the Holy Ghost!, however GOD is not a Trinity and the Holy Ghost is NOT a 3rd person. Don't jump to conclusions. Please read this entire article before deciding that I am right or that I am wrong. Get your Bibles out. Don't believe me. Believe the Bible. i am NOT saying that anyone is lost just because of how they believe on this issue. i am just teaching the Truth without condemning anyone. We all must grow in the knowledge and wisdom of the LORD. Don't JUST read this article but also FAST AND PRAY!
If the Holy Ghost is a 3rd person, in a Trinity, What is his name?
The Fathers names include: "Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh" and many titles.
The Sons names include: Jesus, Emmanuel and many titles.
What's the Holy Ghost' name? You may say this manifestation has titles/descriptions such as comforter but He has NO name!
If the Holy Ghost is a member of the God Family (Elohim) and is a 3rd person, What position does he hold in this family unit?
Father, Son, __________?
You see in the Hebrew Old Testament, the word "God" was "Elohim" which is plural but does not specify how many. In the Greek New Testament, the word "God" was "Theos" which means the Supreme deity and still does not specify a Trinity.
Why did the Apostle Paul ALWAYS leave out the Holy Ghost when refering to the Father AND Christ Jesus? Notice:
Ephesians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
He mentions the Father AND He mentions Jesus Christ! But He DOES NOT mention the Holy Ghost? WHY? Because it's NOT a third!
Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Ephesians 6:23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Galatians 1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Philippians 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Why is it that every time Ezekiel and John see the Throne of GOD, they NEVER mention seeing The Holy Ghost? OR a third throne? Where is the Holy Ghost seated? Beside Jesus?
You may bring up 1 John 5:7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."
However, according to the Scofield Commentary and MANY other Experienced Well Qualified Sources, "It is generally agreed that (1Jo_5:7) has no real authority, and has been inserted."
It is Documented FACT that the original Greek writings did NOT say what it says today in the King James!!! This scripture was added into the bible by men who held the trinity doctrine and wanted to influence peoples thinking in that direction. The orginal writings said: " 6. This is he that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness because the Spirit is truth. 7. For there are three that bear witness, the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree in one. 9. If we receive the witness of man, the witness of God is greater," (But even if you believe that the current king james translation is 100% accurate, It doesn't say that there are three godheads. Its says, these three ARE ONE.)
You might say that God would never allow anyone to remove or add to the bible, that the bible is 100% correct with no errors. However the bible says differently! Notice:
Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
In other words, God gave a curse against anyone who would add to or remove from the bible. If God would not allow man to do so, then why would He warn of this? It's clear that He knew men would do so.
What about Matt. 28:19 ?
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Notice what this verse does NOT say: "baptizing them in the nameS". We are NOT to baptize in 3 names! There is ONE GOD, with ONE Name/Authority. He has MANY names/pronunciations. The One GOD has members of both the Father and the Son. He has a Holy Spirit. His Spirit is Holy. His Spirit isn't a third member/personage/head. But this isn't talking about pronunciations, nor is it talking about how many gods there are. It's telling us to baptize in His Authority. Every time in the Bible that the disciples baptized, the only pronunciation that they did use was "Jesus", they NEVER said "i baptize you in the Names of the Father and of Jesus and of the Holy Ghost". Search the scriptures and see! Why then does it say "Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost"? Because it is telling us to baptize in THE NAME/Authority of The Father, His Son (Jesus) and of Him Crucified and Resurrected (Ghost). His Spirit/Ghost is NOT a third person, it's His Ghost. His Ghost is still Him, it's not another person. It's Him.
1 Cor.12:13 "For BY ONE SPIRIT (NOT 3) are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink INTO ONE SPIRIT".
John 14:16 "ANOTHER COMFORTER": Does NOT mean ANOTHER GOD! There is Only One GOD! NOR does it mean another person. But the word "GOD" is singular plural, meaning one enity with more than one member. There is only one GOD but Jesus and the Father are both GOD, both are parts/manifestations of GOD. NOT Jesus Only! The Father and Jesus are One in that they are both part of that one GOD. He did not send a third god. He sent another manifestation of himself, that is that He sent the Holy Spirit to dwell within man, thus the Holy Ghost inhabiting the vessel of man. You can say that the Holy Ghost is another manisfestation of the same one GOD, but you can't say that it's a third, because He also had already manifested himself in King Melchizedek, the fire in the burning bush, The Angel of the LORD many, many times, etc. Yet all these are manifestations of the One Eternal GOD.
:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter (another manifestation of comfort, see verse 21, NOT another person), that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth (Who is the Spirit of Truth? Notice verse 6! Jesus said "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH!) whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. (Who will come? Who is the Comforter? I WILL COME TO YOU!)
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. (Why did Jesus NOT say "the Father in you, i in you and the Holy Spirit in you"? There are only 3 people in this verse, the Father, Jesus and YOU!)
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of MY FATHER AND I will love him, and will MANIFEST MYSELF to him. (how? by HIS Spirit) (how many people are in this verse? The Father and Jesus!)
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt MANIFEST THYSELF unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
The Holy Ghost could not be sent until the Son, Jesus, returned to the Father in Heaven. In other words, the Holy Ghost could not be sent until after Jesus died, resurrected and ascended back into Heaven so that He could return as His very own Ghost within the hearts and souls of humans. Jesus Living inside of us is called the Holy Ghost. He has always been the Word of God. In the beginning there was the Word and the Word was God and came to dwell among men. The Holy Ghost/the Living Word teaches us and reminds us of what HE/Jesus said! Jesus and the Holy Ghost are one and the same person! The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of GOD when it is outside of us and it's translated as the Holy Ghost when He is dealing with mankind. In Acts, they spoke with other tongues (in the Holy Ghost) as His Spirit gave utterance. In Greek, the words "spirit" and "ghost" is the SAME word but the English translators translated it as "Holy Ghost" when the Holy Spirit is working in the vessels of mankind to show the Power of GOD abiding in man. To understand more about about this, please see my What is the Holy Ghost article.
Accusation: 3 people at Jesus baptism:
Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Answer: The Spirit OF GOD is the Spirit of GOD. It's not a 3rd person. There is NO WAY that this scripture can be used to prove a trinity. i am not saying there is not a Holy Spirit. He clearly does exist! But He is NOT a Third person, He is Jesus and the Father.
GOD is ONE:
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
We do NOT find ANY thing about a trinity in GOD in this very clear Biblical description of GOD.
Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
1 Corinthians 12
:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that JESUS IS THE LORD, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, BUT THE SAME SPIRIT.
5 And there are differences of administrations, BUT THE SAME SPIRIT
6 And there are diversities of operations, but IT IS THE SAME GOD which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of THE Spirit (NOT PLURAL) is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by THE SAME SPIRIT;
9 To another faith by THE SAME SPIRIT; to another the gifts of healing by THE SAME SPIRIT;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh THAT ONE AND THE SELFSAME SPIRIT, dividing to every man severally as HE will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. (ONE BODY, NOT 3, ONE HEAD, ONE GOD HEAD, CHRIST IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH, HE IS NOT A 3 HEADED MONSTER)
13 For BY ONE SPIRIT (NOT 3) are we all baptized into ONE body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink INTO ONE SPIRIT.
Origins of the Trinity is in Paganism, then adopted by the Catholic Church, passed down to the protestant churches
The trinity doctrine originates in pagan cultures such as the babylonians, egyptians, mayans & hinduism. Many times, it was represented by a triangle or by an eye inside a triangle.

Trinity, a trap of the anti-Christ
The son of perdition, bashar assad of Syria, is of the Alawi Sect of islam, which is the only sect of islam that teaches the trinity doctrine. The trinity is THE CENTRE of Alawi worship and rites. It will be their proclaimation of the trinity that will capture many christian believers. It is the trinity doctrine that will be the brainwashing tool that the antichrist will use to convince people that he can be god, since the belief is that god is not one.
