The Great Controversy - ISN'T A Controversy at all ... to the Believer!

The Great Controversy is WITHOUT Controversy to the Believer!!!

Its irony to me that many devout people who are enlightened on truth about Roman Catholicism are hung up on this Sabbath question but have swallowed the real deceit spawned by the state sponsored religion of the 4th century hook line and sinker... and that is the doctrine of the trinity. God is not three persons!

Job 13:6-10:
" Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips. Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?
Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God? Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him? He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons."


Manifestations? Yes! Persons? NO!!!

1Co 12:4  Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

1Co 12:5  And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

1Co 12:6  And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

 

This is a no brainer  - Roman Catholicism complicates everything – they began with the ‘trinity’ that is said to be a ‘mystery’.


They say:

"The Trinity is a mystery of faith in the strict sense, one of the "mysteries that are hidden in God, which can never be known unless they are revealed by God". To be sure, God has left traces of his Trinitarian being in his work of creation and in his Revelation throughout the Old Testament. But his inmost Being as Holy Trinity is a mystery that is inaccessible to reason alone or even to Israel's faith before the Incarnation of God's Son and the sending of the Holy Spirit."


Tell that to a Jew. So the identity of God was hidden to them? No way. Yes, the godhead is a mystery, but it is a mystery revealed!!!! Get it right!

1Ti 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.


Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:


It took Augustine SIXTEEN YEARS to finish his treatise “On The Trinity” – I admit I haven’t read it – who can but a Boston Lawyer? This complication is simply not God’s way. Here is a partial review of the work:

 

“De Trinitate” is perhaps the most difficult work that Augustine ever wrote.

This is so because of its topic, as well as for more mundane factors such as its interrupted composition over a period of sixteen years.

The theology of the Trinity is a difficult subject to explain or discuss.

References to the Trinity in the Bible are few, and their meaning is not always obvious - indeed, they can easily be read as contradictory.

Indeed, there is no explicit description of the Trinity in the Scriptures at all; the orthodox view of the Trinity (as three persons in one God) is an inferential conclusion from the Bible that took generations to assemble.

In light of these limitations, how much clarity about the Trinity is humanly possible?

This problem is sufficiently difficult that many people in the time of Augustine opted to classify it solely as a Mystery of Religion that would be understood in the next life but not in this one.”

I'm sorry, but I don't buy that bunk. Augustine HAS NO EXCUSE.

Sixteen years?
