Yell Real Loud!

July 25, 2010

When you can’t discuss your idea civilly, because it makes no sense whatsoever, just yell real loud! When your idea is convoluted, illogical and refutable a thousand different ways, make the people you are trying to sell it to feel like they are simply not smart enough to grasp the brilliance of your concept, and intimidate them into swallowing it. When you have little or no evidence to back up your idea, just keep changing your “evidence” to fit with your lie, make it really complex so no one can understand it (except you) and then tell people they should “take it by faith” because, after all, it’s been (blindly) accepted for hundreds of years this way. Then attack the credibility of those who would disagree with you and are able to simply and logically refute your idea from scripture, by using scare words like “mind control,” “heresy,” and (my personal favorite) – “cult.”

Still today, after more than thirty years in the Christian ministry, I still hear the same old, tired rhetoric from the Protestant groups who, with strained futility, try to defend the doctrine of the Trinity. It is interesting though, that on the occasions I have had opportunity to speak with highly educated Roman Catholics (who happen to be the group that invented and instituted and promulgated the doctrine of the Trinity around the world at the point of the sword, beginning in the fourth century), they have no argument with me or anyone else who takes a Biblical dissention of the doctrine of the Trinity because they know, as is stated and documented in their own Roman Catholic Encyclopedia, that it was never taught in the Church of the First Century, that it is not a Biblical doctrine but rather a Church doctrine, and that it was the product of “doctrinal evolution” over four centuries. Yet, Protestant groups swear by it as the cornerstone of Christian faith, and vehemently condemn those who refuse to “take it by faith” even though they have not a shred of clear, simple, logical, Biblical evidence. How soon they forget their own beginnings. How soon they forget how their predecessors were labeled as “cultists” and slaughtered by the thousands. (Actually, many of their predecessors were tortured and killed for not accepting Roman Catholic triune theology. Check your history.)

The truth of the matter is that the word “trinity” appears nowhere in the Bible. The word “incarnation” appears nowhere in the Bible. The word “deity” appears nowhere in the Bible. The term “hypostatic union” appears nowhere in the Bible. (As a matter of fact it only began to appear in theological writings in their attempts to justify their illogical, fictitious, and un-biblical trinitarian teaching). The phrase “God the Son” appears nowhere in the Bible, while the phrase “Son of God” appears 46 times in the New Testament referring to Jesus Christ. He is also called the “Son of the Highest” once, “Son of the Living God” twice, “Son of the most High God” once, and “Son of the Father” once. The only way the Trinity can be proved by scripture is by……………….well, actually, it can’t be, without twisting verses around, taking them out of their context, adulterating the simplicity of the scripture with complicated theology.

There is a clear and distinct and vast difference throughout the Bible between God and His Son. Jesus Christ was tempted in all points according to Hebrews 2:18 and 4:15, yet God can not be tempted with evil according to James 1:13. God is spirit according to John 4:24, and for this reason no man has seen God at any time according to John 1:18. Yet, obviously, Jesus Christ was seen and he himself stated that he was not a spirit according to Luke 24:39. The number of places the scripture clearly shows the distinction between God and His Son, and the supremacy of God over His Son are too many to even begin to list in this article.

In the Garden of Gethsemane shortly before his imminent suffering, Jesus Christ went to God in prayer three times, intensely asking “if it be possible, let this cup pass from me.” If he was God, would he not have known whether or not it was possible? Oh, and if he was God, who was he praying to? Oh, and if he was God, why did he need to pray? When he was hanging on the tree and uttered the words “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit”, according to Luke 23:46, who was he talking to? Himself? When he bowed his head and gave up the ghost, did God die? And if God died, who raised Him from the dead? The whole idea of Jesus Christ being God makes no sense whatsoever, so, just yell real loud!

Salvation itself is dependent upon a man or woman believing that “God raised him from the dead,” according to Romans 10:9. Either Jesus Christ was dead or he wasn’t! It is an impossibility to believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead, if you truly believe that Jesus Christ is God. For if God died……….but, wait a minute, how can God die? Oh yeah, he wasn’t really dead………but, uh, wait a minute, man’s redeemer had to suffer and die to pay the price for man’s redemption. Do you see how ridiculous it gets? According to Romans 5:12-19, by the sin of one man “death entered into the world,” and that the gift of God’s grace was “by one man, Jesus Christ.” Hebrews 10:12 states, “but this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.” (Perhaps why so many Christians are so defeated in life is that there god is sitting on his own hands.) Nothing in the scripture makes any sense whatsoever if Jesus Christ was God, but if he was the Son of God (as the scripture says) then everything makes sense, and the Bible can be easily understood and trusted as a source for truth.

Speaking of Jesus Christ and his current position in relationship to his Father, God, Acts 2:33 declares that Jesus Christ is by “the right hand of God exalted.” In Acts 7:55 and 56 it declares that Jesus Christ was “standing on the right hand of God.” Romans 8:34 declares that Jesus Christ is right now “even at the right hand of God” making intercession for us. Ephesians 1:20 declares that God “raised him from the dead, and set him at His own right hand in the heavenly places.” Colossians 3:1 declares that Christ “sitteth on the right hand of God.” Hebrews 1:3 declares that Jesus Christ “when he had purged our sins, sat down of the right hand of the Majesty on high.” Hebrews 8:1 declares that “we have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens.” Hebrews 12:2 declares that we are to look unto Jesus “the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” I Peter 3:22 declares that Jesus Christ is “gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God.” (It’s no wonder so many Christians are so defeated in life, their gods, all three – father, son, and holy ghost – are sitting on their hands. This is the testimony of the Word of God, deal with it, or just yell real loud.

The religionists and adulterators and corrupters of the scripture make a mockery of the beauty and simplicity of the wonderful and great accuracy of the Bible. They make a mockery of Jesus Christ’s FREEWILL choice to believe who he was according to the scripture and his FREEWILL sacrifice to redeem humanity. They make a mockery of Jesus Christ’s wonderful relationship with his Father, God. They make Christianity laughingstock and make fools of themselves with their illogical and convoluted and complex theology.

The Word of God declares in Hebrews 9:24 that Jesus Christ entered “into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.” It doesn’t say that he appears in his own presence! The Word of God declares that he appears in the presence of God – for us! Why is that so difficult to grasp? I Corinthians 15:28 declares that “when all things shall be subdued unto Him (God), then shall the Son (Jesus Christ) also himself be subject unto Him (God) that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” I Timothy 2:5 declares that “there is one God (not one God in three persons), and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus!” Deal with it, or just yell real loud!
