      If you’re making shit up why not make up the trinity too? Could have made it 7 in 1 or 9 in 1 just as well. Stupid people will believe it anyway.

          Well, the Bible says that Iesus is "the Authour and finisher," but Iews and Christians hate that "Authour"
          (samescrote’s a "pioneer," etc, now); To keep the Authour’s three persons’ Same person a mystery.

          Iohn the Baptist founded Christianity, not Iesus.

        He just is, there’s no contradiction in terms. Its just a unique characteristic to God.

        Nobody’s making anything up, that’s just what the text of scripture teaches
        If it taught 7 persons we would believe that instead. There’s no upper limit on the number of persons that could logically be the single essence.

      By thinking of God as a being, we have already begun to make a mistake. We must think of God, rather as the Hegelian Absolute. From there, the Absolute has three beings.

      God transcends being altogether as the Absolute.

        Heresy, Subordinationism

        […]
        You can think of the Trinity as a description of reality as we see it once you realize the "Holy Ghost" is the Mother Goddess archetype embodied by the idol of Mary

        Therefore the Trinity becomes:
        >Holy Father (Masculine Force)
        Creative / active archetype
        >Goddess Mother (Feminine / Generative Force)
        >Divine Son (Byproduct of that Union / Child Archetype)

        We can only describe God in terms of ourselves and we see that life is sustained by the union of feminine + masculine powers which results in a child. That’s why God is described in terms of a Trinity. The Divine Feminine became the "Holy Ghost" as Abrahamics did everything in their power to negate it – but the archetype still lives on in Mary (at least in the Catholic Church).

        Heresy, some weird variation of Collyridianism

            how is this knowledge useless if with it you can identify the fact that many (maybe most) christians believe in those same ancient heresies because they in fact don’t actually comprehend trinitarian doctrine?

          Heresy, Sabellianism

          Heresy, Sabellianism as well

          that’s Sabellianism too
          hell, how many christians are actually heretics because they don’t understand what the trinitarian view of god really means?

          A heresy is simply a religious opinion that a religious authority disagrees with,

          pretty much a meaningless sentiment since its just an opinion, but it sounds bad because people used be killed for it.

              You have to use your own mind in the first place to determine which Sect has the correct interpretation, and you have to use your own mind to determine that that Sect is trustworthy enough for you to completely assent to their religious opinions.

              Either way you have to use your own mind to determine what you believe is true.

                The only way to know which interpretation is correct is with a debate among people who spent years studying theology and are arguing about their different views. Then you hope that god is guiding the debate and that the opinion of the majority is the correct one. Otherwise it’ll be just like protestantism with everyone having their own view of christianity.

                  the problem with these ecumenical councils is they purposely do not invite certain people to remove their opinion.

                    If you were one of the members of the council who was responsible for inviting people to discuss christianity, would you invite a mormon who believes that jesus went to america after the ressurection?

                    The emperors invited bishops from all over, the bishops themselves who were arguing and making the decisions did not do the inviting.

                  Assuming people are honestly and genuinely seeking the truth, there is nothing wrong with having different views.
                  Better to have that than a tyrannical authoritarian institution that arrogantly presumes infallibility when in reality its just a bunch of fallible mortals and their fallible religious opinions.

                    Everyone has different opinions on how the laws of their country should be. In the end, only a few people (who hopefully know a lot about law) are the ones who make the laws anyway. The same logic applies to how religion should be. If every citizen wants to have their own law then there is virtually no real law and there is chaos.

                    Lmao, do you really think that your pastor Cletus Smith has a better view of christianity then a view that was made with more than 1000 years of debates and tradition?

                      If God inspired pastor Cletus Smith to have a greater understanding then it is entirely possible.
                      It is already known God does not like hypocritical traditionalists.

                        There are many many pastors claiming that god inspired them to have a greater understanding of christianity, and each one has different views of the religion. On the other hand we have the oldest Church there is, the one with most members in the world, the richest and most powerful one. I rather believe that God is on their side. It’s just history and math.

      I always figured it was quite simply His way of existence from the very start, probably to demonstrate to us what a Godly coexistence is is like. Let’s not forget this is the same God who can forget and remember our sins on a whim.

      Imagine if you were, I don’t know, a necromancer, or a lich, even, or really whatever powerful thing or even not-powerful thing that helps you visualize, you know? And you had the ability to have multiple bodies going at the same time, at least three. The thing is, these three bodies aren’t all their own being, all three are just (You). You can even tell what’s going on between all three of them individually, but for whatever reason, you have them look different and act different, maybe even give them different names. But all three are actually you, all the same. You could perhaps call them different "persons", but they’re all three the same being.

      It’s honestly impossible to know entirely the full nature of God. The Bible mentions the seven spirits of God. Does God have 7 spirits? What we can really say is Jesus is God, the Holy Spirit is God and the Father is God. They are the same God not different so when you pray to Jesus you pray to the Father who sent him. The Father is known by his Son who is revealed by the work of the Holy Ghost. Again it’s very complex study but it’s simple really on the outside.

        I didn’t play breath of the wild, Zelda was getting too weird and too China for even me who has played them all. Except for Oracle of Seasons and Four Swords and Minish Cap. I also didn’t enjoy Twilight Princess or Skyward Sword as much, but Skyward Sword was still better than TP.

      How can your turbo-charged monkey brain expect to understand something that created the entirety of the universe, and all the laws of logic, mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology that universe requires to function, from less than a vacuum, in less time that it’s taken me to type this message? If there is a god then that god is so far beyond anything you and I could understand that it would be ridiculous to expect it to make sense when it was described to you.
