The Catholic Church says, “The mystery of the trinity is the central doctrine of the Catholic faith. Upon it are based all the other teachings of the church.” — (Handbook for Today’s Catholic, p. 11)
The Catholic Church even confess the Trinity doctrine is not found in the Bible!
“Our opponents sometimes claim that no belief should be held dogmatically which is not explicitly stated in scripture . . . But the Protestant Churches have themselves accepted such dogmas, as the TRINITY, for which there is no such precise authority in the Gospels,” — (Assumption of Mary, Life magazine, October 30, 1950, p. 51)
In 1931 the word trinity appeared in the Adventist statement of beliefs for the first time but it was not official. It was not for another 50 years before the trinity doctrine was officially accepted as being part of the doctrinal beliefs. It is interesting to see what was written in the Review about this issue shortly after its acceptance at the Dallas Convention in 1980.
“While no single Scripture passage states the doctrine of the Trinity, it is assumed as a fact… only by faith can we accept the existence of the Trinity.” — (Adventist Review, Vol. 158, No. 31, p. 4)
It is ASSUMED??? Only by FAITH???
Not only does the Catholic Church confess it is not found in the Bible. But even the Seventh day Adventist Church originally stated that it is NOT found in the Bible!
Oh how things have changed today as we now hear every false argument under the sun to try and prove that it is.
So what happened?
Why is the central doctrine of the Catholic faith now part of SDA fundamental beliefs?
The question was asked in the Catholic Catechism, “What is Sunday…”
The answer was that Sunday “is a day dedicated by the Apostles to the honor of the most holy Trinity.” — (R&H, vol. 5, no. 24, p. 86)
An interesting statement considering “Sunday worship” and the “Trinity doctrine” both came from sun and Satan worship in Babylon, and they were both brought into Christendom by the Catholic Church whom God calls Babylon!
They are also both about who we worship which Revelation 13 and 14 reveals is exactly what the mark of the beast issue is all about. So do we worship the one true God on His Holy day or the pagan Catholic 3 in 1 god? And what about the Seal of God. Which God do we need to be sealed by? The one true God the Father or the pagan Catholic 3 in 1 god. It is impossible to worship the true God on a false day of worship. And it is impossible to worship a false God on the true Sabbath.
Since “Sunday worship” and the “Trinity doctrine” were both brought into Christendom by the beast (Papacy), then consider the following.
“The third angel’s message has been sent forth to the world, warning men against receiving the mark of the beast or of his image in their foreheads or in their hands. To receive this mark means to come to the same decision as the beast has done, and to advocate the same ideas, in direct opposition to the word of God.” — (E.G. White, R&H, July 13, 1897)
And Ellen White says there is still more to be revealed.
“The light that we have upon the third angel’s message is the true light. The mark of the beast is exactly what it has been proclaimed to be. Not all in regard to this matter is yet understood nor will it be understood until the unrolling of the scroll,” — (E.G. White, 6T 17.1, 1900)
Sun-day is Satan’s counterfeit for the true Sabbath and the Trinity doctrine is Satan’s counterfeit for the Godhead.
“As fundamental errors, we might class with this counterfeit sabbath other errors which Protestants have brought away from the Catholic church, such as sprinkling for baptism, the trinity,” — (J.S. White, R&H, September 12, 1854, p. 36)
So “Sunday worship” and the “Trinity doctrine” both came from sun and Satan worship in Babylon, and they were both brought into Christendom by the Catholic Church whom God calls Babylon!
So why do we so strongly reject the Catholic pagan sabbath being Sunday, but embrace their pagan doctrine of the Trinity?
In 1981, Neal C. Wilson was also GC President and announced that the Church had officially adopted the trinity doctrine. He said, “There is another universal and truly catholic organization, the Seventh-day Adventist Church,” — (Neal C. Wilson, Adventist Review, March 5, 1981, p. 3)
A very accurate statement indeed!
Since when does God’s remnant fight to support a doctrine from the beast that has the same origin as the pagan Catholic Sabbath?
