TO TEST THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY IN OBEDIENCE TO SCRIPTURE IS NOT ANTICHRIST OR BLASPHEMY
To obey your priest, pastor, or minister and the doctrines of their churches rather than God is idolatry! God Himself commanded His disciples to “Test all things; [reject what is false,] and hold fast what is good [or true],” (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:1-4.) It is the duty of all those who call upon the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ to open their minds to Scriptural truth concerning all doctrines, and to repent from everything that is false, (1 Ths. 5:21-22; 1 Jn. 4:1-4.)
As neither the word ‘trinity’ nor its pagan concept can be found in the Bible, where did Christianity get it?
Wikipedia Encyclopaedia wrote, “The first of the early [Roman Catholic] church fathers to be recorded using the word ‘trinity,’ was Theophilus of Antioch in the late 2nd century. He defined the trinity as God, His Word Logos, and [the feminine holy spirit,] His Wisdom Sophia...” So, this early mocker of the God of the Bible actually said Jesus is the written Word of God but the Holy Spirit is His Wisdom — the ‘feminine side of God!’
Dr. Gordon Laing, (University of Chicago,) clarifies, “The worship of the Egyptian Triad Isis, Serapis, and the child Horus probably accustomed the early [Roman Catholic] theologians to the idea of [Trinitarianism] and was influential in the formulation of the doctrine of the trinity as set forth in the Nicaean and Atanasian creeds…” [To which Protestants still hold.]
Cher-El L. Hagensick wrote in ‘Origin of the trinity from paganism to Constantine,’ “These were not the only trinities early Christians were exposed to. The historical lecturer, Jesse Benedict Carter, tells us of the Etruscans. As they slowly passed from Babylon through Greece and on to Rome, they brought with them their trinity of Tinia, Uni, and Menrva. This trinity was a ‘new idea to the Romans,’ and yet it became so ‘typical of Rome’ that it quickly spread throughout Italy. Even the names of the Roman trinity: Jupiter, Juno, [the Roman Catholic Dove, the feminine holy spirit Sophia, or Mother Mary] and Minerva, reflect the ancestry. That Christianity was not ashamed to borrow from pagan culture is amply shown by Durant: ‘Christianity did not destroy paganism; it adopted it…’”
BELOW: Pagan Triskelion signs always symbolize three different divine persons or gods in ‘unity, acting ‘as one god.’ The concept pivots on the trinity of Satan, manifested as ‘father’ Satan the sun god, the political beast, and the false prophet.

The Great influence of Historical Hebrew, Greek, and Roman Religions
What made the God of the Old Hebrews so different from pagan gods, (almost all pagans were and are polytheists, who worship many gods,) is the fact that the Old Hebrews worshipped only One God. They were Monotheists.
The Old Hebrews never questioned their ‘Old Testament’ Scriptures, or tried to understand them intellectually, but accepted the notion of The One ‘naturally,’ just as the early disciples of Jesus did. [The Hebrews, now called the “Jews,” are still waiting for their Savior to appear. As we have seen, they should simply read the Tanakh (the ‘Old Testament’) to find that most of their prophecies concerning the Savoir were already fulfilled more than 2,000 years ago when Jesus was born.]
Although the Old Hebrews were supposed to be Monotheists, worshipping only One God, they constantly fell into idolatry, accepting polytheism and temple worship into their culture and religion. However, their perpetual idolatry did not lessen the truth that the God of both the Old and New Scriptures would always remain One [Inseparable] God, (revealed in the New Testament as Father, Son and Holy Spirit,) exalted forever above everything and everyone that might be revered and worshipped as gods. Notwithstanding this great truth, many Bible Scholars actually have the nerve to teach that “ancient pagans, (even the most evil Egyptians,) were actually Monotheists. They did not really worship many gods as polytheists, because they believed in the trinity,” [or “oneness” of agreement between three different and distinctly separate gods, who were masquerading as ‘one god.’]” Thus, early humanity (and even modern pagans) allegedly all “worshipped the One, True God unknowingly!”
These blasphemers equate The Scriptural God to these pagan deities and declare that they were and are all the same god! Hence, many critics of the God of the Bible use the fact that pagans worshipped trinity-gods to discredit the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as an ‘imitation’ of these trinity deities! This, of course, is because Satan is the imitator of Jesus his Creator. Since that day when humanity fell from grace in the Garden, the devil has been setting up his fraudulent reproductions of nearly everything, which God had promised humanity He would give and do! Thus, Paul commanded in 1 Cor. 10:14-21, and 2 Cor. 6:14-18, “Flee from idolatry… The things, which the [polytheist] Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons… For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? What agreement has the [Spiritual, New Testament] temple of God with idols? For you [sincere believers] are the temple of the living God…”
After the fall in Eden and before the flood of Noah all of ancient humanity, (except for the house of Noah,) was into naked Satanism, as Old and New Testament Scripture testify. Polytheism was as common in ancient paganism as in our day.
Mayans, Hindus, Buddhists, and Egyptians all worshiped (and still worship) supreme trinity gods of three distinctly different gods ‘in agreement’ with one another; false replicas of The Scriptural God. Ignoring the factual and Scriptural history of pre-flood Babylonian idolatry, which began to flourish again after the flood of Noah, Trinitarians search for true Monotheism in pagan trinities, only to find polytheism everywhere they look.
Historians say ancient Sumeria was occupied by Assyria and eventually, by Babylon. They all worshipped a ‘supreme’ trinity, namely three distinctly separate persons or gods in union with one another, which ruled over all their other deities. The Ancient Sumerian trinity was constructed by ‘agreement’ between Anu the father, Enlil the god of earth, and Enki the god of waters. The Assyrian trinity was their transsexual father and mother (the feminine holy spirit as in Roman Catholicism) in ‘heaven,’ which were “in union” with the ‘divine’ human Assyrian king, who did their will on earth. The Babylonian trinity of three separate but equal gods were united by their “inter-relationship, which formed the essence of their natures.”
ROMAN CATHOLIC/PROTESTANT DOCTRINES CLEARLY EXPLAIN THE ORIGIN AND MEANING OF THE TRINITY
Alexander Hislop, a 19th century Protestant minister, who fiercely exposed paganism in the Roman Catholic Church while overlooking Roman Catholic paganism in Protestantism, wrote in his book ‘The Two Babylons,’ “In the unity of the ‘One’ God of the Babylonians, [their temple worship was so idolatrous that God destroyed the whole world with water because of their ritual, sexual relations with demons, Gen. 6!] there were three persons, [or three gods] and to symbolize that doctrine of the trinity, they employed… the equilateral triangle, [the main symbol of all masonic orders,] just as it is well known, and the Roman Church [and all Protestant churches] do to this day…”
To Christianize and legalize the religion of Rome, Caesar Constantine (330 A.C.) and the Vatican began to adapt Scriptural verses to pagan dogmas. This made this new State religion acceptable to the citizens of Rome. As with everything else, to describe the trinity, the Vatican did not turn to the contextual truth of the Scriptures. Instead, they claimed, amongst other abominations, the following Greek and Roman doctrines as “trinity truth,” which Protestantism, in turn, adopted from the Vatican. Today, it is still taught unchallenged to all its members of all denominations.
John Calvin, during the Reformation, burnt Servetus most cruelly on the stake because he protested Calvin’s blind adoption of the most important Roman Catholic dogmas, in particular, the pagan trinity. Calvin, “the pope of Geneva,” father of the Dutch Reformed Churches, placed himself above all accountability, also in murdering thousands of Baptists in conjunction with the Vatican and the Kaiser, as his allegiance was actually with the Vatican, not with the God of the Bible and His Scriptural truth.
This is how the Roman Catholic Vatican Carefully Constructed the Dogma of the Trinity from Paganism:
· The Roman Catholic/Protestant Doctrine of Consubstantiality:
Wikipedia reports, “[The word] ‘consubstantialis’ is an adjective used in Latin Christian Christology, coined by [Roman Catholic Church Father] Tertullian in Against Hermogenes 44... "Consubstantial" describes the relationship among the cohabiting [or the living together of different] divine persons of the Christian Trinity… Consubstantialis signify that God the Father, God the Son, and God the [feminine] Holy Spirit are "of one being" in that the Father, [who is the ‘higher,’ ‘almighty’ God — as the Son is supposedly a ‘lesser, mighty god,’ Isa. 9:6,] "generated" ("born" or "begot") [the Son] "before all ages" or "eternally" of the Father's own being, from which the Spirit also eternally "proceeds..."
With this, Catholics and Protestants too, who made this doctrine their own during the Reformation, actually described how “each ‘person’ [or actually, god] of the trinity came from a different place,” as the Father “birthed” the Son, and together, the Father and the Son “birthed the Holy Spirit” — may God have mercy on their deluded, sin-infested souls! They did not care that God Himself said in Heb. 7:3, “[The Godhead of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is] without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like [or in the human image of] the Son of God…”
Wikipedia Encyclopedia continued, “Each [different or separate] person [of the trinity] is God, whole and entire. [Yet,] they are distinct [or separate] from one another in their relations of origin…” This means, each god supposedly came from a different source, as the Roman Catholic Church council, led by Pope Innocent 111 in 1213 AD, declared at the Fourth Lateran Council, "It is the Father who generates, the Son who is begotten, and the Holy Spirit who proceeds…”
Again, Heb. 7:3 declares that God has NO ancestry. Yet, these priests tried to dissect and describe how God created Himself!
· Their doctrine of Hypostases:
Wikipedia, “The [Greek or Roman] concept of [Tritheist] “hypostases,” means the shared existence of [separate] spiritual or corporal entities (plural,) [meaning three separate gods sharing one habitation,] has been used in a number of [pagan] religious and intellectual settings… In Christian theology, a hypostasis, [a god, or] a person is one of the three elements of the holy trinity. [Here, they actually define each ‘divine’ person or god as an ‘element’ like water or fire...] In Christian usage, the Greek word hypostasis (ὑπόστᾰσις) means beneath standing...” [Meaning, one person or god is “more important,” “more dominant,” and “more mighty” than the other - as in ‘Almighty Father’ and His ‘Mighty’ Son Jesus!]
· Their Doctrine of Ousia:
Wikipedia, “In Early Christian writings ‘hypostases’ [means] "being" or "substantive reality" and is not always distinguished in meaning from ousia, 'essence' or 'substance,' [or some other kind of incorporating or unifying existence...]
In ancient Greek, ‘ousia’ is the noun formed on the feminine present particle… [And here they refer to the ‘feminine’ holy spirit!] In 251 AD, Origen used ‘ousia’ to define God as one Genus of Ousia, while being three, distinct Genus of Hypostases, [persons or gods...] The common agreed-upon meaning is, “All that subsists by itself and has not its being in another…” [Clearly, according to this definition as well, each person or god of the trinity is a completely separate individual or entity and utterly distinct from the other two individual ‘persons’ or gods.]
“Hypostases [coupled with Ousia] was used in this way by [Roman Catholic Church Fathers] Tatian and Origen, and also in the anathemas appended to the Nicene Creed of 325. It was mainly under the influence of the Cappadocian [Church] Fathers that the terminology was clarified and standardized, so that the formula, "Three Hypostases [or different, individual persons or gods] in one Ousia" came to be accepted as an epitome of the orthodox doctrine of the Holy Trinity.
“This consensus, however, was not achieved without some confusion at first in the minds of "Western" theologians, who had translated hypo-stasis as "sub-stantia" (or substance.) [This was] understood by the "Eastern" Christians, when speaking of three "Hypostases" in the Biblical Godhead, to mean three "Substances," i.e. they suspected them of Tritheism.” [The worship of three different gods.]
“From the middle of the 4th century onwards, [since Caesar Constantine ‘Christianized’ the Roman Empire by merging Roman paganism and Christianity,] the word hypostases was contrasted with ousia and used to mean "individual [distinctly separate] reality, especially in Trinitarian and Christological contexts. The Christian view of the Trinity is described as a view of One God existing in Three Distinct Hypostases [or Divine Persons — which still means three different gods in mere unity, or in agreement with one another.]”
SOPHIA OR SHEKINAH, THE FEMININE ROMAN CATHOLIC ‘HOLY’ SPIRIT, THE THIRD PERSON IN THE TRINITY, CLAIMED AS PROTESTANT PROPERTY DURING THE REFORMATION
Not aligning themselves with any denomination, Wikipedia Online Encyclopaedia reported, “The first of the early [Roman Catholic] church fathers to be recorded using the word ‘trinity,’ was Theophilus of Antioch in the late 2nd century. He defined the trinity as God, His Word Logos, and His Wisdom Sophia... The Vatican simply Christianized the pagan goddess Sophia (or the Jewish Cabbalist goddess Shekinah) as the ‘holy spirit,’ calling her “Mother Mary.”
Wikipedia continues, “The [Roman Catholic] Confession of the Council of Nicaea said little about the Holy Spirit. The [Roman Catholic] doctrine of the divinity and personality of the Holy Spirit was developed by Athanasius in the last decades of his life. He defended and refined the Nicene formula. By the end of the 4th century, [when Caesar Constantine had finally Christianised Roman religion] under the leadership of Basil of Caesarea, Gregory of Nyssa, and Gregory of Nazianzus (the Cappadocian Fathers), the doctrine of the trinity had reach substantially its current form...”
Thus, we can say for certain, this pagan/Christian demon, (the Roman Catholic trinity with its feminine ‘holy’ spirit,) is not the Godhead of the Bible — the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Catholic veneration of the fertility goddess Mary, ‘the mother of god,’ ‘mother earth,’ or ‘the queen of heaven, god’s wife,’ relates to the trinity of Babylon: the happy ‘Divine Family’ of ‘father’ Nimrod the sun god, ‘mother’ Semiramus the Babylonian holy spirit, and her reincarnated husband/son, the ‘cosmic christ’ Tammuz!
The real Mary of the Bible was the human mother of the Man Jesus Christ, while the God of the Bible “has no father and no mother.” “God is without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but make like [or in the human image of] the Son of God…” (Heb. 7:3; Col. 2:9.)
Protestants did not progressively ‘purge’ these Roman Catholic doctrines from their dogmas
Although Protestant Reformers deny Mary as their holy spirit, they remain fused to the Roman Catholic dogma of the trinity like molten rock to a mountain — but the goddess Sophia is, and always will be the holy spirit of the unholy Christianized three-gods-in-unity trinity. Additionally, Protestants still follow Catholicism’s basic church structures, where the physical church with its physical building is their ‘mother,’ and where the members of their hierarchical clergy are their anointed ‘fathers’ or mediators, who minister between them and the throne of God. [Jesus Alone is the Mediator of His New Testament Covenant, Heb. 9:15.] Despite all the truth of God’s Word in plain sight, Protestants also cling to Catholicism’s ‘saving’ sacraments such as the Christianized baby baptism and teenage confirmation; effectively nullifying Jesus’ complete atonement in their place.
Unknown to most of their members, The Roman Catholic ‘holy spirit’ Sophia or the Jewish Cabalist goddess Shekinah, which even Charismatic and other Protestant churches revere as “The Shekinah Glory” when they experience manifestations such as “Shekinah Dust,” “angel hair,” etc., is the feminine fertility goddess of the occult and masonic orders. Sophia, Shekinah, or Mary is definitely not God the Holy Spirit of the Scriptures! What’s more, the Holy Spirit of the Bible is not female and God definitely does not have a ‘feminine side,’ as Kenneth and Gloria Copeland teach!
[With acknowledgement to the person who took this photo]
Above: Secretly, this Mary idol represents the feminine ‘holy’ spirit of the Roman Catholic Church, (a.k.a. Sophia or Shekinah,) whom Protestants inherited from the Vatican! That is why the pope, his entire priesthood, and all their church members bow to this idol - they are worshipping the spirit of the pagan fertility goddess Sophia! And this is why Reformers such as Calvinism hardly ever mentioned the Holy Spirit of the Bible, and still rejects His true Scriptural miracles and gifts!
In his book, ‘Two Babylons,’ Alexander Hislop knew very well to expose the feminine holy spirit of Catholicism, although as a Protestant minister, he never repented from the inherited idolatry of the Roman Catholic Church. Yet, concerning the trinity, he wrote, “In the Dove and the Deified Queen of Heaven, [the Roman Catholic Mother Mary, or Semiramus of ancient Babylon,] as the Tabernacle or Temple of God, [perverted from the Jewish/Cabbalist goddess Shekinah!] not only all power, but also all grace and goodness were believed to dwell…. To express the celestial benignity of her nature, she was called by the name of "The Dove…” [Hence, the dove is a sign of ‘divine’ incest between the fertility goddess Semiramus and her reincarnated husband/son Tammuz.] The dove, the symbol of this deified ‘queen of heaven’ Mother Mary, is commonly presented with an olive branch in her mouth… The branch is the symbol of her deified son, [the false christ Tammuz, also known as Horus — Christianized as the false Roman Catholic Jesus.]”
Hislop continued, “When the deified mother was represented as a Dove… that identified her with the Spirit of all grace that “brooded, dove-like, over the deep at the creation;” for in the sculptures at Nineveh the wings and tail of the dove represented the third member of the idolatrous Assyrian trinity... The Assyrian "Juno" or "The Virgin Venus" was identified with the [goddess of] air… In Chaldean, the same word, which signifies the air, signifies also the "Holy Ghost..."
“This knowledge accounts for the statement of Proclus that "Juno imports the generation of spirit." Whence could the spirit of man be supposed to have its origin, but from the Spirit of God? In accordance with this character of Juno as the incarnation of the Divine Spirit, the source of life, and also as the goddess of the air, she is invoked in the Orphic Hymns…”
