The Holy Trinity


God is not a God of confusion [1Cor.14:33]

Holy Trinity
By c.pio

even a Grade 1 student will not agree when you say 1+1 = 1 Blind Catholics” TruthshallSetYoufree [a fanatic member of IglesiaNiCristo INC-1914 founded by Mr. Felix Manalo]

1+1+1=1

1+1+1 cannot be equal to 1!

Father            is God            = 1 God
Jesus Christ     is God            = 1 God
Holy Spirit       is God            = 1 God

Total                                  = 3 Gods

Anti-Catholic is expert in creating confusion. They condition the mind of their ‘Prey’ in a limited, box-minded, closed-door application of “ADDITION” just to support their a man-made doctrine against the HOLY TRINITY.

They wanted to draw the attention of their target ‘Victims’ that the teaching about the HOLY TRINITY is UNBIBLICAL with reference to ‘ONE GOD’. Sometimes this ‘formula’ backup by ‘invented history’ that the doctrine of the Trinity is of a pagan source from the Emperor Constantine during the Nicea Council.  


HOLY TRINITY - ONE GOD IN THREE PERSONS

Trinity: “The union of three divine persons (or hypostases), the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in one divinity, so that all the three are one God as to substance, but three Persons (or hypostases as to individuality).”

HOLY TRINITY does not correspond to THREE GODS as the ‘Formula’ proposed by anti-Catholic whose intention is to DECEIVE people. Rather it is a TRIUNE GOD! ‘Tri’ meaning three in ‘Unity’: ONE GOD three separate complete individual Persons with their own individual, unique identities.

Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition state over and over that there is ONE GOD. So, we technically cannot say that there are three Gods in one God. It is not three Gods in one God – it is ONE GOD IN THREE PERSONS. 

13 = 1     
1x1x1 =1
1^3 =1

The proper illustration in formula would be 13 = 1 where the variable “1” was the base and the number “3” was the power. WHERE THE “BASE” IS THE FIXED NUMBER, and the “POWER” is the variable.

   Father                        
God      =         Jesus Christ     = 1 God
   Holy Spirit                              


HOLY TRINITY IS BIBLICAL AND HISTORICAL

Catholic doctrine of the [Trinity] did not “invent” at the Council of Nicea, nor was it derived from “pagan influences.” Long before Bishop Arius propose that Jesus Christ is not God; centuries before the Nicene Council all Christians hold the TRUTH that the FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT is Co-Equal Co-eternal.

Ignatius of Antioch calls Jesus God Sixteen (16) times (Ignatius is Disciple of Peter and Paul) he mentioned Jesus God while the Apostle John is still alive and even before the ‘Bible’ come to exist. Polycarp says Jesus is God Incarnate (Polycarp is Disciple of John). Then Polycarp transferred these teaching to his disciple named Iraneaus who said Jesus is God.

When it come to Scriptures, there is a Biblical Reference pertaining to the HOLY TRINITY contrary to what INManalo Cult were saying; The most strong verse came from Jesus Christ itself and the other verses are from epistles of Paul and Peter or the so called Triadic formulas. These ‘Triadic Formula’ implicitly says the Three Persons are Co-equal and Co-eternal BUT DISTINCT PERSONS.

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same SPIRIT distributes them. There are
different kinds of service, but the same LORD. There are different kinds
of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same GOD. [1Corinthians 12:4-6]

May the grace of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and the love of GOD, and the fellowship of the HOLY SPIRIT be with you all. [2Corinthians 13:14]

…who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of GOD THE FATHER, through the sanctifying work of the SPIRIT, for obedience to JESUS CHRIST and sprinkling by his blood. [1Peter 1:2]

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the [NAME] of the Father [AND] the Son [AND] the Holy Spirit.”


Because of the limited space let us focus in Christ Baptismal Formula:

“…baptizing them in the [NAME] of the Father [AND] the Son [AND] the Holy Spirit.”

[NAME] SINGULAR not [NAMES] Plural
[AND] COMPOUND UNITY not [OR] Individuality

[AND] COMPOUND UNITY, IN A SINGULAR FORM [NAME]

He [Jesus Christ] gave Three Names [Persons] but all these three addressed in ONE!

In other words, Christ speaks of DIVINE UNITY. Three Persons who are co-equal, co-eternal, inseparable, interdependent, and eternally united in one absolute Divine Essence and Being.

The term ‘TRINITY’

Because the word trinity is never found in the Bible, they concluded that this teaching is unbiblical. Yes, the term [TRINITY] is absent BUT the doctrine that describe the term [TRINITY] can be seen [as shown it above].

A good example is the word ‘cousin’, during the time of Christ there was no word for ‘cousin’ they simply address them as ‘brother/sister’ but we can see a filial affiliation that denotes the consanguinity or affinity. The point, then: While the term [Trinity] is never specifically used nor the doctrine explicitly explained in Sacred Scripture, it is however implicitly stated. Therefore, the absence of a term used does not necessarily mean the term is not biblical.

ETERNAL ONE TRIUNE GOD: Unity in diversity, Equality in dignity and Diversity in operation.

NOT 1+1+1=3

“…baptizing them in the [NAMES] of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Or
“…baptizing them in the name of the Father [OR] the Son [OR] the Holy Spirit.”


13 = 1        
1x1x1 =1
1^3 =1

“…baptizing them in the [NAME] of the Father [AND] the Son [AND] the Holy Spirit.”



[ISAIAH 43:10]: Verse common used to disprove Holy Trinity

‘You are my witnesses,’ says the Lord, ‘and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me’" [Is. 43:10].

HOLY TRINITY is with harmony with this verse; Firstly, the TRIUNE GOD is not three Gods in one God – it is ONE GOD IN THREE PERSONS. 

Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are not a NEW FORMED GOD by Catholics, BOTH OF THEM ARE ETERNAL AS THE FATHER, THEY THREE EXISTED BEFORE THE CREATION : THESE THREE PERSONS ARE ONE GOD. So even this verse in the book of Prophet Isaiah concerning ONE GOD: [no god was formed, nor shall there be any AFTER ME] will not go against the HOLY TRINITY [ONE GOD IN THREE PERSONS: MONOTHEISM]. TRULY AS PROFESSED BY JESUS CHRIST:

“…baptizing them in the [NAME] of the Father [AND] the Son [AND] the Holy Spirit.”

    1. Lolz. When did I say TRINITY CANNOT BE FOUND IN THE BIBLE?

      Ok. This is what I said I will quote:

      Because the WORD TRINITY is never found in the Bible, they concluded that this teaching is unbiblical. Yes, the term [TRINITY] is absent BUT the doctrine that describe the term [TRINITY] can be seen [as shown it above].

      [I said the ‘WORD TRINITY’ OR THE TERM TRINITY AND NOT THE ‘TRINITY’ is never found in the Bible]

      A good example is the word ‘cousin’, during the time of Christ there was no word for ‘cousin’ they simply address them as ‘brother/sister’ but we can see a filial affiliation that denotes the consanguinity or affinity. The point, then: While the term [Trinity] is never specifically used nor the doctrine explicitly explained in Sacred Scripture, it is however implicitly stated. Therefore, the absence of a term used does not necessarily mean the term is not biblical.

      [hehehe be careful next time]

      HOLY SPIRIT: nice topic right? Lolz.

      [HOLY SPIRIT IS AN INDIVIDUAL PERSON WITH PERSONAL IDENTITY AS COMPARE TO THE TEACHING OF A SINFUL MAN NAMED FELIX THAT THIS IS ONLY A FORCE]

      ONLY PERSON IS ADDRESS BY GENDER

      [John 14:26] but the PARACLETE, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you.

      Holy Spirit the parakletos [the Comforter, Advocate or Counselor] IS A MASCULINE GENDER. You cannot address a Gender Noun to THINGS, FORCE(like wind, flame etc). only to a PERSON.

      [John 15:26] But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, HE will bear witness about me.

      [John 16:8] When HE comes, HE will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgments

      [John 16:13] But when HE, the Spirit of truth, comes, HE will guide you into all the truth. HE will not speak on HIS own; HE will speak only what HE hears, and HE will tell you what is yet to come.

      HOLY SPIRIT IS ADDRESS A GENDER NOUN ‘HE’/’HIS’. Again if Holy Spirit is not a person but only a ‘force’, ‘flame’ or ‘Power’ it should be address by a NEUTER NOUN ‘IT’/ITS’

      HOLY SPIRIT IS A PERSON WHO CAN SPEAK, DECIDE AND MADE AN ACTION:

      [John 16:13] But when HE, the Spirit of truth, comes, HE will guide you into all the truth. HE will not speak on HIS own; HE will speak only what HE hears, and HE will tell you what is yet to come.

      HE guide, HE speak, HE hears.

      [Acts 8:29] The Holy Spirit SAID to Philip, ‘Go up and join that chariot.'

      [Acts 13:2] One day while they were offering worship to the Lord and keeping a fast, THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID, ‘I want Barnabas and Saul set apart for the work to which I have called them.'

      BLASPHEMY IS A SIN AGAINST TO GOD ONLY and NOT TO HUMAN PERSON OR THINGS.

      [Matthew 12:31-32] And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the SPIRIT will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man [JESUS CHRIST] will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the HOLY SPIRIT will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.

    2. I am no Catholic enthusiast. As a matter of fact I believe the Catholic Church is of the antichrist. But the Trinity is a sound doctrine. John 4:24 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth".

    1. Hmmm hehehe lolz, do you think I haven’t given the answer yet? Hehehe lolz, simply because you have problem in ‘reading-comprehension’ that is one reason why you failed to get the core answer of your opponents. Lolz hehehe [by the way, you haven’t answer my question on when did I said that the TRINITY is not in the bible?] lolz hehehehe In elementary, we call it ‘Reading-Comprehension Problem’.

      Again Let us proceed:

      [Acts 5:3-5] why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the HOLY SPIRIT… You have not lied to men but to GOD.

      NOW. WHAT VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS… THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT GOD? Chapter and verse… not just opinion and own interpretation!

  3. INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved members are always insisting on their borrowed "bible alone" doctrine. Trinity is not in the bible; The word Catholic is not in the bible etc...

    Well if that so, then I demand also to all of INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved members to make their baptism in the Jordan River; follow literally everything in the bible alone; live in the bible alone culture and time-frame generation.. hahaha

    Using IPhone 4s is not written in the Bible, therefore it is not biblical, it was invented by the Catholic Church. This is insane!

    INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved members will push into their member's empty skull that Apostolic Traditions are not biblical and evil invented by Catholic Church - why? because they have no reason to claim Apostolic Traditions and the Successions of the Popes from St. Peter because they only existed in 1914 as a business corporation.

    You see, they are hardcore-insane-cult-heretics yelling everything in Catholic Church is wrong, from Face of Christ, The Holly Communion, The Sutana of the Priest, The Sign of the Cross, The Saints, the Feast days, The Christmas, The Catholic baptism, The Religious Statues, sculptures and paintings etc.. everything about Catholic are evil for them... BUT, they are using the Catholic Published, Translated and Compiled Bible...
