False Doctrine: Trinity and Hell
God’s Stolen Glory and Reputation – Ruined By His Own Children
The 1st commandment, everyone knows, but just in case…
1 God spoke all these words, saying,2 “I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.3 “You shall have no other gods before me.
Everyone knows what Jesus said about the greatest commandment, when asked by the Jewish religious leaders, attempting to trip him up.
35One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37And He said to him, “ ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ 38“This is the great and foremost commandment.”
28One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, “What commandment is the foremost of all?” 29Jesus answered, “The foremost is, ‘HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD; 30AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.’ “
25And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26And He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?” 27And he answered, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” 28And He said to him, “You have answered correctly; DO THIS AND YOU WILL LIVE.”

One God – The False Doctrine of the Trinity
Can there be any doubt, having been explicitly laid out by God our Father himself, and Jesus Christ our Lord, that loving our Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the only Living God, the Most High God, God of Hosts,–YHVH Tsva’ot–is the number one priority in the life of God’s children, which are Jesus’s called out Assembly? There is zero doubt, zero equivocation, zero confusion. Goose-egg.
Even Jesus himself pointed his followers to his Father in Heaven, and not to himself. So everybody’s clear on that? We’re all on the same page, right?
No, we’re not, and we aren’t even close. The God Most High isn’t receiving a fraction of his rightful glory from the quote-unquote New Testament church because of the false doctrine of the trinity. Not a pittance of what we owe him.
Why? Let me count the ways. The 3-god trinity was imposed on believers by Catholics in 381 AD — a full 350 years AFTER Jesus was crucified, resurrected, and ascended into the heavens to sit at Almighty God’s right hand in glory. Trinitarians say that their doctrine is “foundational” to the Christian belief system, and if you reject it, well, you probably aren’t saved, perhaps you even CAN’T be saved.
Fate of Those Prior to Trinitarianism
If this doctrine did not enter (forcibly) into church doctrine until 381, what happened to the first-century believers? 2nd and 3rd century assemblies? The ones who were filled by and with the Holy Spirit and spread belief in Jesus over the known-world like wildfire? The Apostles certainly weren’t trinitarians, to say nothing of the chosen people of Yahweh over the 2,000 year span from Abraham to Jesus. Jesus was not a trinitarian, unless he believed it but didn’t think it was foundational enough to mention one time over the entire course of his ministry.
Catholics tortured and murdered people for rejecting the false doctrine of the trinity. Michael Servetus was burned alive at the stake in Protestant-reformer John Calvin’s Geneva, and criticizing trinitarianism was part of what brought his death sentence.
God Has Been One since The Old Testament
Making Jesus the same in substance, and equal to God, is in direct violation of the first commandment, and steals glory from God, glory that he stated emphatically in Isaiah 42:8, “I am Yahweh. That is my name. I will not give my glory to another, nor my praise to engraved images.”
“To whom then will you liken me? Who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
6This is what Yahweh, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Yahweh of Armies, says: “I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God.7Who is like me? Who will call, and will declare it, and set it in order for me, since I established the ancient people? Let them declare the things that are coming, and that will happen.8Don’t fear, neither be afraid. Haven’t I declared it to you long ago, and shown it? You are my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? Indeed, there is not. I don’t know any other Rock.”
“I am Yahweh, and there is none else. Besides me, there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not known me; that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none besides me. I am Yahweh, and there is no one else.”
The Old Testament is overflowing with verses declaring that God is One, “echad,” just one, the only one. And to serve him only, have no other gods, give him ALONE the honor and glory reserved unto him, that is his desire, to say nothing of being his command. He positively requires it.
And yet man created and serves a triune god, in direct violation of the “greatest commandment” given by Jesus himself: “Hear O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord!” It is a quotation of Deuteronomy 6:4, “Hear, Israel: Yahweh is our God; Yahweh is one:”
Source of the False Doctrine of the Trinity
Since 381 AD, for 1,638 years, 16 centuries, through the false doctrine of the trinity, man has spat in God’s face by relegating him to one of three, diminshing the glory which is owed ONLY to him, expecting him to “share” that which he made abundantly clear he absolutely would not share with anyone. How then should he bless this disobedient, obstinate people, his “special possession unto himself?” The question should be, rather, how has he not destroyed us.
We do not even know who the Real God is, because the false doctrine of the trinity creates a false god. How could we possibly render glory and honor to the Most High God, when we have rejected him, as described to us in the scriptures, in favor of GREEK PHILOSOPHY from Plato and Socrates? We have wronged the One True Living God for a millenium-and-a-half, robbed him, worshiped a false god.
The False Doctrine of Hell
Now, let’s talk about the doctrine of hell, which has tarnished and warped the magnificent nature and character of God Almighty since the 5th century, and transformed him into an implacable, ravenous tormentor whose ghastly fury can never be satisfied, while we nod our heads solemnly, and say it is “fair,” lest we on accident partake in it ourselves.
It is nothing less than utterly criminal, what this false doctrine of everlasting hell has done to the very reputation of him we call our “Heavenly Father.” Would an earthly father, ANY human father, perpetrate such despicable evil on his own child, if given the chance, for disowning him, disobeying him, or not loving him enough, or in the “right” way? Yet we have made God our Father, who possesses boundless grace and never-ending love, LESS MERCIFUL THAN MAN.
This slander shakes the heavens, and the foundations of the earth, that God’s children, bought at tremendous cost by the precious blood of his son, solely for MAN’S sake, would believe for one second that this same loving God, who spent millenia meticulously planning to SAVE man, could in any way be remotely capable of this demonic device of a never-ending torture called hell.
Hell Is Not Horror – Teaching It Is
Man has turned the God of Heaven and Earth, whose loving kindness endures forever, into a devil. And then man sings his hell-god’s praises in the church, which teaches this wicked doctrine, smug in their certainty that their God loves them, and hates most everyone else who was ever born of woman with an unquenchable hatred. This, brothers and sisters, is beyond detestable. And then the church man wonders why God isn’t moving in their church, or bestowing his holy spirit, or BLESSING them more.
I can scarcely conceal my absolute disgust over this belief. One can imagine how the maligned God of Love, from whom all good gifts come, feels about the church which teaches that this is his character. It is truly abhorrent, repugnant, and hateful beyond the ability of words to express: it is an unmitigated evil against God.
Do not doubt it, that we have not given the smallest portion of rightfully-due honor and worship to the most glorious being in existence, the God of the universe and beyond, creator of all things, giver of life, and bestower of eternal life in his son Jesus. And WE are supposed to be his true children, above all others, as the ekklesia of that same Jesus.
Our Greatest Sin
If we knew what sackcloth and ashes were used for, we should sit in it for a YEAR in abject horror at what we have done to the God Most High, Yahweh, our own Father in Heaven. We should tear our garments, fast, weep, beat our breasts, and forgo all pleasure and joy in crushed repentance, for our infernal, egregious, and blasphemous sin committed against GOD.
And he would turn to us, and forgive us through the blood of Jesus our Lord, because THAT is who he is. He is not at all what we have understood him to be, and made him out to be.
We do not deserve him, nor blessing, nor heaven, until we repent like never before, for stealing from him, and ruining his reputation before the world. It is our greatest sin.
