Poisoned Wine of the Trinity is an Ineffable Mystery that Stole Jesus’ Identity

Poisoned Wine Declared a Trinity

The poisoned wine of the Trinity was declared at the Council of Nacea in 325 AD. The early Roman church had bandied the apostolic doctrine about for over three hundred years before adding the final touches of corruption. What a travesty occurred when Satan altered the apostolic doctrine through the councils of the early Roman church by declaring Jesus the second person in the Godhead. The Trinity corrupts the  apostolic doctrine.

As pre-Trinity doctrine settled into the Roman church, its members began to argue. Christian Jews claimed Jesus was God, but the Roman converts argued that Jesus didn’t possess all of God’s attributes; therefore Jesus and the Father were two separate and distinct persons. These conflicts attracted Emperor Constantine. Constantine wanted to be a Christian but to please his polytheistic subjects he favored the Trinity theology over the apostolic doctrine. In 381, the Council of Constantinople declared the Holy Ghost the third person in the Godhead, successfully embedding the Trinity into the Christian world.

The Catholic Church Doctrine of the Trinity Is an Ineffable Mystery

The Trinity is an ineffable mystery that can’t be understood. In an attempt to clarify and legitimize the Trinity, the Catholic Church published a statement in its catechism that declared the Trinity an ineffable mystery (too overwhelming to be expressed or described in words).

During the first centuries the Roman Catholic Church sought to clarify her Trinitarian faith, both to deepen her own understanding of the faith and to defend it against the errors that were deforming it. This clarification was the work of the early councils, aided by the theological work of the Church Fathers. . . . In order to articulate the dogma of the Trinity, the Church had to develop her own terminology with the help of certain notions of philosophical origin: “substance,” “person” or “hypostasis,” “relation” and so on. In doing this, she did not submit the faith to human wisdom, but gave a new and unprecedented meaning to these terms, which from then on would be used to signify an ineffable mystery, “infinitely beyond all that we can humanly understand.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church: nos. 250, 251, Accessed 26 FB, 2008)

Sabellius, an early dissenter from the Catholic Church, didn’t believe the Trinity. He taught that God’s invisible Spirit and the Holy Ghost dwelled in Jesus. The author of God in Three Persons , published by Catholic Answers, fully understood the differences between the Sabellian and Trinity doctrines. He wrote, “Sabellius claimed there is only one Person in the Godhead, so that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all one Person with different ‘offices,’ rather than three Persons who are one being in the Godhead as the orthodox position holds.”  Satan altered the apostolic doctrine enough to make it a falsehood, but not enough to make it unbelievable. This clever satanic falsehood literally became the golden calf for all generations to come. Clearly Sabellius didn’t practice the Trinity doctrine.

Poisoned Wine Stole Jesus’ Identity

The Trinity doctrine stole Jesus’ true identity. Instead of God’s flesh, they called Jesus the second person in the Trinity, leading to the ungodly worship for three persons in the Godhead. Satan accomplished what he had set out to do—steal Jesus’ identity. The Trinity defiles God’s flesh body.

Long before the Trinity was established, Ezekiel prophesied that the Jews would pollute and profane God’s name. “I will sanctify my great name [Jesus], which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord [Jesus], saith the Lord God” (Ezekiel 36:23). God hates the Trinity.

In his epistle to the Romans, Paul clearly recognized the fallacy of the Roman church concerning the Trinity and reprimanded the Jews for blaspheming the name of God. “Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God, And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law. . . Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written” (Romans 2:17-18, 23, and 24). The Trinity dishonors the name of God (Jesus).

The Christian Jews knew God’s law and were supposed to be a light unto the world by teaching others, but they approved the Trinity. They knew the writings of old so they were “without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man” (Romans 1:20-23). The Trinity dogma, adopted by the Roman Church is not biblical.

Paul accused the Roman Christian Jews of sacrilege because they worshipped a Trinity god. “Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege” (Romans 2:21,22)? The Christian Jews knew the apostolic doctrine and God’s hatred for idolatry. They taught against idolatry but allowed the Roman converts to worship Jesus as “an image made like to corruptible man” (Romans 1:23). The Christians Jews hated idols, yet they foolishly profaned God’s name by worshipping Jesus as the second person in the Trinity.

Contradicting the Trinity, Paul said the Godhead is clearly understood. “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even, his eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:20). The Roman Christian Jews saw God’s miracles through Jesus but did not glorify Jesus as God. The Trinity stole God’s’ identity (Jesus) and stripped Jesus of His deity.
