Trinity & Triads
The closest present day religion, which
has a Trinity, as its core belief is Hinduism. In the Hindu philosophy Lord
Brahma is the Supreme God of Creation, Lord Vishnu is the Sustainer God and Lord
Shiva is a God of Destruction. Hindus, who worship multiple deities, justify
their dogma as monotheistic belief on the ground that each deity stresses one or
more aspects of The One Supreme God, called Brahma. There are hundreds of gods
and goddesses in various Hindu temples throughout India. But each has its own
specific power and place in worship, depending upon a particular aspect or
aspects of the Supreme God that he or she stresses or represents. This is very
similar to the Trinity in Christianity; however, most Christians who view the
Hindu religion will condemn it as Polytheistic. The question for Christians is
why then do they not view their own religion as Polytheistic if they think the
Hindu Religion is polytheistic?
How can the
singularly absolute God with his indivisible oneness become three separate
beings with three independent decision centers. For example, if all three
entities are confined to their own domains for thought and decision-making, then
how do they coordinate the separation and joining process of the three different
entities? Which entity dictates the split of the one into the three? Is it the
Father, The Son, or the Holy Spirit? There must be
some cause for this controlled effect and that causative factor acting supreme
over the three will be the Omnipotent God and not any one of the three, which
are only the effect of the supreme controlling cause. Based on the
following analysis it does not appear that all three entities are coordinating
their efforts. Jesus appears to be confined to his own domain with no access to
his Father's mental processes or knowledge. The following three examples prove
how Jesus is unable or not allowed to transcend into omnipotence, even
admittedly by Jesus himself*
A) Since Jesus does not know of the Day of Judgment he does not have unlimited access to God's information, hence, he is confined to his own domain.
24:36 But of that day and hour no man know, not the angels which are in heaven,
nor the son, but only the father.
B) Here is another example of how
Jesus does not have unlimited access to God's knowledge.
25-32 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and
touched his cloak, because she thought, If I just touch his clothes, I will be
healed. Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was
freed from her suffering. At once Jesus realized that power had gone
out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, Who touched my clothes?
But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
C) Jesus himself acknowledges that the Father is greater
than himself and how he does not have the ability to access his father's
Jon 14:28 My father is greater than I.
D) The following verses further prove
how Jesus is unable to tap into all the powers of God, even if it meant saving
his own life. Moreover, if Jesus is God why does he insist on crying in order to
gain help. He really seems confined to his domain of thought and decision making
to the extant where it really frustrates him, hence, he cries! This proves his
frustration that he cannot transcend his own domain into that of God's.
6:12 One day Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray and spent the night
praying to God.
5:7 During Jesus days on earth, he offered prayers and petitions with loud cries
and tears to the one who could save him?
E) The following verse further shows
how Jesus is confined to his own domain of thought and decision making. For
example, Jesus asks a QUESTION in major disappointment. This verse also shows
that Jesus is dependant on some other source for help.
27:46 My God My God why hast thou forsaken me? Furthermore,
if Jesus were God than why does he not say in this verse, Myself, Myself, why
hast I forsaken Myself? Would not this be complete nonsense?
