The Mystery of the Triune Godhead


*Light*

Hello Family of God,

(Parentheses) within Bible passages cited are used to expound on the word/s in [brackets] which precede the parentheses. ALL CAPS are used for double emphasis; this is my way of saying, "It says what it says, and it means what it means." The Bible is self-explanatory (i.e., "the best defense of Scripture is Scripture itself") in its interpretation (i.e., "the perspicuity of Scripture"), but even to this day, we find unnecessary criticism from Biblical "scholars" and theologians alike. According to these "brilliant" minded men and women, they ask, "hath God said?" (cf. Gen. 3:1-5; Lev. 18:22; Isa. 66:1-2; Rom. 1:26-27; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; 15:3-4; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:3-5; 1 Tim. 1:9-10; 2 Pet. 1:3; Jude 7).

"And without controversy great is [the mystery of godliness] (Grk. to tes eusebeias musterion; i.e., "The Revelation of God in Christ disclosed within the pages of Holy Scripture"): God was [manifest] (Grk. phaneroo; i.e., "The Incarnation of the Eternal Son of God") in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." (1 Timothy 3:16)

The Doctrine of the Trinity (i.e., "The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit" as ONE in BEING; He is the One True and Living God) has been slandered by the unregenerate as polytheistic, heretical, an invention of man, and even stated as being demonic in origin. I will first begin by explaining in a nutshell what the Trinity is NOT; I will also be providing Irrefutable arguments to destroy every argument that raises itself against the knowledge of God; and we are all obligated to defend its Truth from all false teachings that raises itself against the knowledge of God, and to do so with the right spirit (cf. 2 Cor. 10:4-5; 2 Tim. 2:15, 24-25; 3:16; 4:1-5; Tit. 1:9; 1 Pet. 3:15). Below are a list of false doctrines and heresies that have been taught throughout church history in Christendom.

    • I don't believe anyone here has said to conduct church discipline during a communion service, and you're correct, that wouldn't be the place to conduct such an action. Usually people are notified by the pastor or the deacons concerning any action towards reconciling the offending Christian to the body (local church). There is first a call by one, then two or more, then usually brought before the church (local assembly) for a vote of notification of separation from the church because of sin. If t
    • Sorry, the New Testament usage of the word church is to local assemblies and to the one assembly we will be in Heaven - it is not regarding some universal church/assembly down here. When you look at it on a local church level, it is very easy to have church unity. There can never be universal church unity - and in fact, that would go against MANY commands in the New Testament, as there are many churches that teach false doctrine, that allow sin, that teach and preach and practice things against
    • At the first communion, Jesus had Judas Iscariot with Him.  Did Jesus not know how to discipline?  It is not the pastor's duty to discipline at the communion service.  If the pastor has issues with a "member", I hope the disciplining would be before communion.  I would think there would be a better time and place.  The pastor is not held accountable, if in ignorance, he lets someone take communion who claims to be a saved/baptized follower of Christ.  It is his duty to reiterate what Paul wrote
    • Also, in Heaven, we will be perfect, sinless and have perfect knowledge. Down here, we do not.
    • It's not a "club mentality." Many hold to the closed communion ideology, others to close, and many to open. The church is an individual cell/called out assembly, and I can fully understand those of the "closed"  communion, as each individual, called out assembly is responsible for their members and the actions of them. Closed shows that the local church has the right ideology that they should be able to discipline their own members, and help to keep their local members accountable in the matters
    • So much "club" mentality....Maybe when we get to heaven Jesus can keep us separated to our "local church" congregations.  I am sure that would make some people happy!  
    • Passover was to be eaten by the whole nation at the same time but with one lamb per household. Each household was to have its own lamb with the exception of very small homes where they could join with their neighbour. They were to eat it in hast and without leaven, with the blood applied to the door post for that household. (Exodus 12) The lord's supper is modeled after that with the exception that Christ is the lamb of our supper. 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 Purge out therefore the old leaven
    • Thanks for your attempt Bro. Jerry. In an attempt to resolve this, as well as defend my position and lesson; I would suggest that you once again go over what I wrote in that lesson in regard to its restrictions. I would point you specifically to the restriction indicated by who sat at the first Lord's Supper. It was only the twelve. There were many other disciples, possibly thousands. But only those that comprised the first church (The Apostles) ate. To me, this is instruction by example, a
    • Jim, just doing quick word searches (and not actually skimming the passages), I think Acts 20 may be the only actual reference to the Lord's Supper during Paul's ministry as recorded in the book of Acts. I am not sure if this was a church started by Paul or a gathering of people that he knew from other local churches he started, ie. whether he knew them from Troas or from other places.
