The notes below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
2 Corinthians 11:3 (Note that we are to live in “the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ” – which is something quite different to the intellectual gymnastics involved in trying to understand a trinity.)
Matthew 11:29-30 (Note that in this passage Jesus invites us to “Come to Me” – not “Come to Us.” When He says come to Him, we can picture comforting arms that will strengthen and protect us; if He had said come to Them, we wouldn’t have known what to picture! )
God manifested Himself as a man that we might better understand Him; why then introduce the image of monster (anything with more than one head surely is), something much harder for people to relate to? (And undesirable to boot.)
Note: the word “Trinity” appears nowhere in the Bible. It is an error that arose after the Scriptures were all written.
To continue this Bible exposition on the Trinity versus Christ, see Choose Christ – Not the Trinity from today’s A Bible Reader’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
If you are familiar with the Bible, or if you want to hear more from it, you may want to read one of my other blogs: A Bible Reader’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom, including today’s post that expands on the Bible notes you see here: Choose Christ – Not the Trinity.
