PREFACE
This publication, “Is the TRINITY DOCTRINE Divinely
Inspired?”, should serve as food for thought to every right
minded person and the followers of Modern Christianity. The
concept of the Trinity has baffled every Christian
denomination. Although Mr. M. A. C. Cave was a Christian
who believed in the Trinity before, when he carried-out his
research into the origin of this doctrine, he discovered to his
utter amazement that it was a later development conceived
and engineered by various Christian writers and thinkers.
Mr. M. A. C. Cave builds up evidence that the Trinity is
nothing but a man- made doctrine that falls short of being a
revelation from God. Subsequently, this tailor-made doctrine
lost its angularity on account of built-in contradictions and
proved thorny on the side of Christian hierarchy in general
and the clergy in particular who are trying to prop it up.
It is unacceptable on the part of the right thinking person to
hold to this dogma inspite of all its flaws. Man being rational,
he should be more critical of issues of spiritual aspect which
are vital to his life. He should attempt to peep into others
religious scriptures around for a convincing truth. And, he
should not let himself be a victim of complacency and
blindfaith as in the past. Try to reflect on the verses of the
Scriptures:
I appeal to the reader to examine this book with an unbiased
mind and open heart to the truth because this is the only way
that may lead to the right decision that shapes one’s life in this
world and the world to come.

INTODUCTION
Nothing offends more the Christians than to cast doubt about
the doctrine of the Trinity, the fountainhead of their faith.
Since I grew up as a Christian, I know by heart that it will
surely injures a devout follower of Christianity something he
Knew as true. But to lend a blind eye when I know better is
far from righteousness since I am bound by the God’s
Commandments to guide those mislead by the false doctrine.
It is a basic right of every individual to know the truth that
will lead him to the right path.
It is an established fact, that man was created a rational being,
hence, he possess the capacity of reason. Associated with it,
man have always the inclination to seek for the truth.
Therefore, as an individual, he is expected to reason out things
objectively in all his words and actions to reach his goal.
Further, he is complimented with the freedom of choice to
enable him to adjust in a civilized society. It is equally true
that no one has the right to force him to accept even the truth.
Nevertheless, it is a kind of arrogance and obstinacy for a
rational being to reject the truth. Men of principle does not
only uphold the TRUTH, even a bitter truth, but also are
ready to defend that truth under any circumstance up to the
extent of sacrificing their own lives.
The Trinity is so deep-rooted among the Christians that
seldom could one consider the implications of the ‘three-in-one
God. Although its orgin is from the pagan belief majority of
them never question the veracity of such doctrine being

unaware that it is man-made and not of God breathed. The
Trinity doctrine declares:
“The Father is God, the Son is God, the Holy Spirit is God
and together, not exclusively, they from one God. The Trinity is
co-eternal, without beginning or end, and co-equal.”(1)
Jesus (Pbuh), is considered by the Trinitarians as having two
natures-human and divine. He is believed to be the Son of God
and full God as being the second person of the Godhead of the
Trinity doctrine.
However, in this book, readers will discover that some
revealed truths have been deliberately perverted by the
Christian thinkers, scribes, theologians, writers, evangelists
and the churches in order to substantiate their claim of the
Trinity doctrine as “divinely inspired”. Before long, Prophet
Jeremiah (Pbuh) warned the people about the corruption
made in the revelation by those who teach the religion of God.
He says:

“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the LORD is
with us’? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it
into a lie.” (Jeremiah 8:8, the Bible)
As regards to the false concept of worship, Prophet Jesus
(Pbuh) repeated to us the warning given by Prophet Isaiah
(Pbuh), but the people are indeed heedless. He says:
“This people honours me with their lips, but their heart is far
from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the
precepts of men.” (Matthew 15:8, the Bible).

My decision to embark on this venture sprang out of my quest
for truth about the concept of the Trinity. The research was
not only confined to the Scriptures, but also to treatise and
articles of religious scholars. Some of their works proved
sensational and received approval from Christian
denominations.
The research was undertaken with an open mind in view of
my previous belief in the Trinity doctrine. In fact, the idea
originated to look for tangible evidence to prove its
authenticity, and not the way around, bearing in mind that it
had its origin from God. Further, in order to be objective I
have used reference material that I could lay my hands on.
Indeed, it was a soul-searching effort on my part to weigh the
evidences as they kept piling. Unfortunately, as the research
progressed, the doctrine of the Trinity passed on to
generations as the ultimate truth became moribund. Had the
result been in its favor, it would have illuminated my heart.
However, to my. dismay, I found it to be wrong. This manmade doctrine was coined by people to serve their selfish and
vested interests. Thus, all the previous claims turned out to be
absolutely false. The Trinity doctrine is not only against the
teachings of the prophets of God but also is an insult to human
intellect because it is contrary to reason and nowhere to be
found in the Bible.
Finally, the bitter truth is that it demolishes the Trinity and
Incarnation doctrines together with all related beliefs. To
worship God according to His revealed Guidance is to reject
them downright.
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
11
Scrapping the concept of God Incarnate and the Trinity does not
discredit Jesus but places God in His elevated, unique, exalted
and unparalleled position as the only true Deity worthy of
worship. Jesus Christ is not God but a great Prophet and
Messenger of God!
I beckon ‘one and all’ to look for truth in my work which
could open the hearts of those longing for salvation.
“Our God! Through this piece of work we have strived to convey
the correct meaning of Your Message to mankind. Our Lord
shower Your blessings and guide them to the Truth. Wherever
we have gone wrong, please forgive us and protect the people
from our shortcomings.” Amen

SPECIAL Media REPORTS FROM U.K.
SHOCKS SURVEY OF ANGLICAN BISHOPS
Shock Waves rolled all over England and the Christian World
when a report in the DAILY NEWS of the U.K. under the
caption: “Shock Survey of Anglican Bishops,” reported that
more than half of England’s Anglican Bishops agrees that:
“Christians are not Obliged to Believe that Jesus Christ was
God”. The poll conducted of 31 of England’s 39 Bishops, deny
Jesus’ DIVINITY and RESURRECTION thus rending two of
the most fundamental Christian doctrines completely void.
They attribute these age-old concepts to inaccuracies in the
Bible. (2)
NOT GOD – BUT “GOD’S SUPREME AGENT”
The report further states that 19 of the 31 Bishops agree that:
“It was Sufficient to Regard Jesus as ‘God’s Supreme Agent”. (3)
THUS, MORE THAN HALF OF ENGLAND’S
ANGLICAN BISHOPS ABSOLVED THEMSELVES FROM

    BISHOPS JENKINS SLAMS CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTAL
    DOCTRINES
    In an interview to London’s Weekend Television religious
    programme “CREDO”,- the newly appointed Bishop of
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    13
    Durban – the Rev. Professor David Jenkins, who is the fourth
    high – ranking Bishop in the Church of England – directed his
    attack at the shaky base on whish the entire structure of
    Christianity stands. The most fundamental Christian
    doctrines of Jesus’ DIVINITY and RESURRECTION were
    slammed by the Bishop, expressing that the events in Jesus’s
    early mission: “Were not Strictly True but were Added to the
    Story of Jesus by the Early Christians to Express their Faith in
    Him as a Messiah”. (4)
    This concept about God and Jesus (Pbuh) is shared by all the
    apostles, early Christians, ancient and modern day Christian
    scholar, thinkers, writers and even the ordinary Christian.
    Jesus (Pbuh) says in (Matthew 4:10, The Bible):
    “. . . for it is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God
    and Him only shall you serve.”
    In (John 17:3, Bible) he says: “And this is eternal life, that they
    know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christi whom thou hast
    sent.”
    Again he says in (John 20:17, The Bible): “. . . I am ascending
    to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”

Are these statements not clear? Wherefrom Jesus (Pbuh)
came to be accepted as God?
Now here comes, the Billion Dollar Question: “Is The
TRINITY DOCTRINE Divinely Inspired?”
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
14
THE CHRISTIANS
Close to a billion people around the world continue to
believe and practice the doctrine of the Trinity while twofold of
them, if not more, reject it outright on the ground that it is not
biblical but also fallacious, baseless, senseless, repugnant and
contrary to reason.
According to Bamber Gascoigne, in his book “The
Christians”: For the first fifty years of what we now call the
Christian Era, not a word survives in any document about
Christ or his followers. During the next fifty years, the
Christians themselves wrote down most of the books that now
make up the New Testament. But still not a word, with one
small exception, from any outside writer. And then, in the
second century, Roman authors began to comment: (5)

“There is a group, hated for their abominations, called
Christians by the people. Christus, from whom the name comes,
suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the
hands of one of our officials, Pontius Pilate.” (Tacitus)
“The Christians are a class of men given to a new and
wicked superstition.” (Suetonius)
“The poor wretches have convinced themselves that they
are going to be immortal and live for all time, by worshipping
the crucified sophist and living under his laws. Therefore, they
despise the things of this world, and consider them common
property. They receive these doctrine by tradition, without any
definite evidence. So if any charlatan or trickster comes among
them, he quickly acquires wealth by imposing upon these simple
folk.” (Lucian)
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
15
Nevertheless, Christianity flourished and became one big
religion, but the teachings of Modern Christianity as we know
it today, is different from what was taught by Jesus (Pbuh) to
his disciples. The different doctrines of Christianity like the
Trinity was a later development. Its inception began during the
reign of Emperor Constantine the Great at (Nicaea) and later
developed into a full blown dogma at the time of Emperor
Theodosius in 381 C.E. What a strange! Since then,
Christianity has multiplied into many different sects and it is
difficult now to recognize the true Christian faith. But
whatever it is, in the present context, none is close to the
original teachings of the prophets. They based their teachings
on the Bible which is subject to continues revision.
God alone knows when Christians will be able to produce the
correct (authentic) copy of their Scripture (Bible).
One wonders, at the number of versions of the Bible in
circulation today. Each one is different from the other, yet,
each claims to be the original version. They have acquired a
taste to declare to the world that theirs is divinely inspired.
Their ready reference is in (II Timothy 3:1, The Bible), which
says: “All scripture is inspired by God…” But what the
Christians do not understand is that, “substantially, the
contents of their Bibles are not Scriptures but only stories,
accounts, events and traditions.” The problem become more
complex when we come to know that some versions of the
Bible contain more books than the others. The Orthodox
Version (OVC), contain 86 books; the Charismatic Version
(CV), contain 76 books; the Roman Catholic Version (RCV),
contain 73 books and all the Protestant versions, contain 66
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
16
books including the New World Translation of the Holy
Scripture 1984, used by the Jehovah’s Witnesses and
other versions like the King James 1611 – 1942,
American Standard 1901 – 1944, Revised Standard
[1971] Second Edition (RS) Jerusalem Bible 1966, Good
News Bible – Today’s English Version 1976, The Holy
Bible (1954: as printed in 1956), Ronald A. Knox (Kx), New
International Version (NIV), and countless other versions.
Moreover, how about the allegations of the distinguished
Revisers of the Bible of the Revised Standard Version (RS),
Revised Edition of 1952 and for the New Testament, Second
Edition of 1971, by Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Ltd, published for
Canadian Bible Society, which says in its Preface: (1) “Yet the
King James Version have grave defects….. these defects are so
many and so serious as to call for revision of the English
translation.” (2) “The king James Version of the New
Testament was based upon a Greek text that was marred by
mistakes” How about the charges of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in
their Awake publication of September 1951 which states: “The
Bible has 50,000 error!”
And, how about if I say that contrary to our beliefs “none of
the four Gospel writers were original disciples of Jesus (Pbuh).”
In (Luke 6:14-16 and Mark 3:17, The Bible), we find the
names of the twelve disciples appointed by Jesus (Pbuh).
While the names of Matthew and John are included, the names
of Mark, Luke and Paul are not mentioned.
However, from the following quotations, you will discover that
the two Gospels attributed to Matthew and John respectively,
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
17
were written by third persons. Read the reproductions of the
verse in (Matt. 9:9, The Bible):
“As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew
sitting at the tax office and he said to him, ‘Follow me.’ And he
rose and followed him.”
And in (John 21:23, The Bible):
“This is the disciple who is bearing witness to these things, and
who has written these things; and we know that his testimony is
true.”
In the first instance, the writer merely narrated what had
transpired between Jesus (Pbuh) and the man Matthew, while
in the second instance, it is obvious that the pronoun “We”
stands as the writer.
Let us now reflect on what the two Christian Scholars say
about the making of the Bible:
“A copyist would sometimes put in not what was in the text,
but what he taught out to be in it. He would trust a fickle
memory, or he would make the text accord with the views of the
School to which he belonged. In addition to the versions and
quotations from the Christian Fathers, nearly four thousand
Greek MSS (Manuscript) of the Testament, were known to exist.
As a result the variety of reading is considerable.”(6)
“Thus Gospels were produced which clearly reflected the
conception of the practical needs of the community for which
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
18
they were written. In them the traditional material was used, but
there was no hesitation in altering it or making additions to it, or
in leaving out what did not suit the writer’s purpose.” (7)
THE TRINITY DOCTRINE
The Trinity doctrine is considered to be one God in three
Persons. Each of them is said to be without beginning having
existed for eternity. Each is aid to be Almighty, neither greater
nor lesser than the others; each is said to e a complete God in
every sense of the word which includes God’s attributes and
all are equal in time, position, power and knowledge. This
doctrine forms the core and pillar of the Christian faith
advocated by almost all the Christian denominations.
However, the Trinity doctrine is not divinely inspired, but a
man-made dogma coined by the Christians during the last
quarter of the 4th century. In fact, it was the outcome of the
Council of Constantinople in 381 C.E. which agreed to place
the Holy Spirit in the same stature as God and Jesus Christ.
The Encyclopedia Britannic states that: The concept of the unity
of essence (homoousia) of the divine Logos with God the Father
ensured the complete divinity of Jesus Christ. The mystery of the
person of Jesus Christ could be grasped in the formula: two
natures in one person…..Not being derived primarily from
abstract teaching, it rather changes within the liturgy in ever
new forms and in countless hymns of worship – as in the words
of the Easter liturgy:
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
19
“The king of the heavens appeared on earth out of kindness
to man and it was with men that he associated. For he took his
flesh from a pure virgin and he came forth from her, in that he
accepted it. One is the Son, two-fold in essence, but not in
person. Therefore in announcing him as in truth perfect God
and perfect man, we confess Christ our God.” (8)
The Athanasian Creed states:
“There is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and
another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the Glory equal, the
Majesty co-eternal…The Father is God, the Son is God, and the
Holy Ghost is God. And yet there are not three Gods but one
God…For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to
acknowledge every person by himself to be God and Lord, so are
we forbidden by the Catholic religion to say there be three Gods,
or three Lords.” (9)
The Orthodox definition of the Christian Trinity and
Athanasian Creed: “The doctrine of the Trinity states that the
Father is God, the Son is God, the Holy Spirit is God and
together, not exclusively, they from one God. The Trinity is coeternal, without beginning or end, and co-equal.” (10)
The Roman Catholic Church states: The Trinity is the term
employed to signify the central doctrine of the Christian religion
…. While the Greek Orthodox Church, calls the Trinity, “the
fundamental doctrine of Christianity even saying: Christians are
those who accept Christ as God.” In the book “Our Orthodox
Christian Faith”, the same church declares: “God is triune. . .
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
20
The Father is totally God. The Son is totally God. The Holy
Spirit is totally God.” (11)
HOW THE TRINITY DEVELOPED INTO
A CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE
Persecution of the Christians and the suppression of the early
Church under the Roman emperors which began in the first
century, ended with the coming into power of Constantine the
Great at the Milvian Bridge in 312 C.E. Consequently,
through conversion to Christianity special favors were offered
to the people in the form of political, military and social gains.
As a result, thousands of non-Christians joined the Church
and enabled Constantine to wield great power over the
Church affairs.
It was during the reign of Constantine that the idea of Jesus
Christ as co-equal to God, the Father began to gain
momentum. Yet, Trinity was not an established doctrine at
that time. The idea of a triune god stirred great controversy
within the Church as still many clergy and laymen did not
accept the position of Christ as God. (12)
This disagreement reached the level of confrontation between
Bishop Alexander of Alexandria, Egypt and his presbyter
Arius. Bishop Alexander taught that Jesus was equal to God
but not Arius. So at a synod held at Alexandria in 321 C.E.,
Arius was deposed and excommunicated. (13)
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
21
Arius, tought in institutional disfavor, still had much support
outside Egypt. Many of the important bishops, such as the
learned historian Eusebius of Palestinian Caesarea and his
powerful namesake, Eusebius, Bishop of Nicomedia,
theologically agree with Arius: Jesus Christ is not God. (14)
The sustained controversy disturbed Constantine and in order
to legitimatize his position, he invited all bishops of the
Christian Church to Nicaea (which is now in Asia Minor) in
May 325 C.E. Thus, the Council of Nicaea began to settle the
dispute concerning the relationship between God and His son.
Constantine, who was in charge of the proceedings, exercised
his political power to bring to bear the bishops to accept his
theological position. The creed signed by 218 bishops was
clearly anti-Arian. In other words, the Creed of Nicaea
endorsed the Son as co-equal to God. Two hundred eighteen of
the bishops signed this creed, although it was actually the
work of a minority. (15)
The Encyclopedia Britannica summarizes the proceedings of
the Council of Niacea as follows:
The Council of Niacea met on May 20, 325. Constantine
himself presiding, actively guiding the discussion, and
personally proposed (no doubt on Ossius’ prompting) the
crucial formula expressing the relation of Christ to God in the
creed issued by the council, “of one substance with the
Father.” Over-awed by the emperor, the bishops, with two
exceptions only, signed the creed, many of them against their
inclination.
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
22
Constantine regarded the decision of Nicaea as divinely
inspired. As long as he lived no one dared openly to challenge
the Creed of Nicaea; but the expected concord did not follow.
(16)
The Creed of Nicaea
We believe in one God the Father All-sovereign, maker to all
things visible and invisible; And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the
Son of God, begotten of the Father, only-begotten, that is, of
the substance of the Father, God of God, Light of Light, true
God of true God, begotten not made, of one substance with the
Father, through whom all things were made, things in heaven
and things on the earth; who for us men and for our salvation
came down and was made flesh, and became man, suffered,
and rose on the third day, ascended into the heavens, is
coming to judge living and dead.
And in the Holy Spirit,
And those that say ‘There was when he was not,’ and, ‘Before
he was begotten he was not,’ and that, ‘He came into being
from what-is-not; or those that allege, that the son of God is
‘Of another substance or essence’
Or ‘created,’
Or, ‘changeable’
Or ‘alterable,’
These the Catholic and Apostolic Church anathematizes.
“The ‘Nicaea’ Creed
Bettenson explains the Nicene Creed as follows:
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
23
[It was] found in Epiphanius, Ancoratus, 118, C.A.D. 374,
and extracted by scholars, almost word for word, from the
Catechetical Lectures of S. Cyril of Jerusalem; read and
approved at Chalcedon, 451, as the creed of ‘(the 318
fathers who met at Nicaea and that of) the 150 who met at
a later time’ (i.e., at Constantinopolitan, 381). Hence often
called the Constantinopolitan or NicaenoConstantinopolitan Creed, and thought by many to be a
revision of the creed of Jerusalem held by Cyril.
We believe in one God the Father All-sovereign, maker of
heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible;
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
Begotten of the Father before all ages, Light of Light, true
God of true God, begotten not made, of one substance with
the father, through whom all things were made; who for us
men and for our salvation came down from the heavens,
and was made flesh of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary,
and became man, and was crucified for us under Pontius
Pilate, and suffered and was buried, and rose again on the
third day according to the Scriptures, and ascended into
the heavens, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father,
and cometh again with glory to judge living and dead, of
whose kingdom there shall be no end:
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and the Life-giver, that
proceedeth from the Father, who with Father and Son is
worshipped together and glorified together, who spake
through the prophets:
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
24
In one holy Catholic and Apostolic Church:
We acknowledge one baptism unto remission of sins. We look
for a resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to
come. (17)
Though the Council of bishops accepted the Creed of Nicaea
there was no mention of the Trinity.
The controversy over the nature of Jesus continued for several
decades. In the year 381 C.E. a second ecumenical council met
in Constantinople.(18) This council adopted the Nicene Creed
stating that Jesus and God were co-equal, co-eternal and the
deity of the Holy Spirit. The doctrine of the Trinity came to be
formally established as the cornerstone of Christian faith for
the next fifteen centuries.
Note: Like the “Lords Prayer” (Matt. 6:9-13, The Bilble), all
Roman Catholics are required to memorize the “Nicene
Creed” which they include in their prayers.
Emperor Theodosius made belief in Christianity a matter of
imperial command:

“It is Our Will all the peoples We rule shall practise that
religion which the divine Peter the Apostle transmitted to the
Romans.
We shall believe in the single Deity of the Father, the Son, and
the Holy Spirit, under the concept of equal majesty and of the
Holy Trinity.
We command that those persons who follow this rule
shall embrace the name of Catholic Christians. The rest,

25
however, whom We adjudge demented and insane, shall sustain
the infamy of heretical dogmas, their meeting place shall not
receive the name of churches and they shall be smitten first by
divine vengeance and secondly by the retribution of Our own
initiative. We shall assume in accordance with divine
judgment.”(19)
Subsequently, the doctrine of the veneration of Mary as the
“mother of God” and “bearer of God” was also formulated at
the Second Council of Constantinople (553 C.E.) and the title of
“Eternal Virgin” was added. “In the prayers and hymns of the
Orthodox Church the name of the mother of God is invoked as
often as in the name of Christ and the Holy Trinity”….” In the
Roman Catholic doctrine, Mary, the mother of God, was
identified with the figure of the divine Wisdom. The process of
deifying the mother of God went a step further here, in that
Mary is treated like a divine hypostasis (substance). the figure of
heavenly Wisdom.”(20)
FACTORS THAT INFLUENCED
THE TRINITY DOCTRINE
The factors that influenced the formulation of the Trinity
Doctrine was summarized by the Watchtower and Bible Tract
Society of Pennsylvania, 1989, in what may be regarded as
precursor of the Trinity doctrine:
Throughout the ancient world, as far back as Babylonia, the
worship of pagan gods grouped in triplets were common. This
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
26
practice was also prevalent before, during and after Christ in
Egypt, Greece and Rome. After the death of the apostles, such
pagan beliefs began to invade Christianity.
Historian Will Durant observed: “Christianity did not
destroy paganism; it adopted it….From Egypt came the ideas of
a divine trinity.” And in the book of Egyptian Religion,
Siegfried Morenz notes:
The Trinity was a major preoccupation of Egyptian theologians .
. . Three gods are combined and treated as single being,
addressed in the singular. In this way the spiritual force of
Egyptian religion shows direct link with Christian theology.”
Thus, in Alexandria, Egypt’s churchmen of the late third
and early fourth centuries, such as Athanasius, reflected this
influence as they formulated ideas that led to Trinity. Their
own influence spread, so much that Morenz considers
“Alexandria theology as the intermediary between the Egyptian
religious heritage and Christianity.”
In the Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics, James Hasting
wrote: “In Indian religion, e.g., we meet the Trinitarian group
of Braham, Siva, and Visnu; in Egyptian religion, the
Trinitarian group of Osiris, Isis, and Hourus . . . Nor is it only in
historical religions that we find God viewed as a Trinity. One
recalls in particular the new-Platonic view of the Supreme or
Ultimate Reality.” Which is “triadically represented.”
The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious
Knowledge shows the influence of this Greek philosophy: “The
doctrines of the Logos and the Trinity received their shape from
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
27
Greek Fathers, who. . . were much influenced, directly or
indirectly, by the Platonic philosophy. . . That errors and
corruptions crept into the Church from this source cannot be
denied.”
The Church of the First Three Centuries says:
“The doctrine of the Trinity was of gradual and comparatively
late formation; … it had its origin in a source entirely foreign
from that of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures;. . . it grew up,
and was grafted in Christianity, through the hands of the
Platonizing Fathers.”(21)
Sculptures of gods with three faces were found in several parts
of the world (e.g., Kampuchea, [Triune Buddhist godhead, c.
12th century C.E.]; Italy, [Trinity, c. 15th century C.E.];.
Norway, [Trinity (Father, Son, Holy spirit), c.13th century
C.E.]; France, [Trinity, c. 14th century C.E.]; Germany,
[Trinity, c.19th century C.E.]; India, [Triune Hindu godhead,
c. 7th century C.EI.]; S.Falmyra, (Triad of moon god, Lord of
Heavens, sun god, c.1st century C.E.]; Babylon, [Triad of ,
Ishtar, Sin Shamash, 2nd millennium B.C.E.] and Egypt, [Triad
of Horus, Osiris, Isis, 2nd millennium B.C.E.]).(22)

JUSTIFICATION OF THE TRINITY
BY THE TRINITARIANS
Giants of Christendom, in an attempt to rescue the Trinity,
tried all available means to justify the doctrine. However,
after exhausting all known logics and human reasons, failed
miserably and declared it to be a “MYSTERY”. The following
are some of statements given by head of the Churches,
eminent Christian Theologians and known writers who came
boldly to defend it with temerity:
“The most Holy Trinity is a mystery in the strictest sense of
the word. For reason alone cannot prove the existence of a
Truine God, Revelation teaches it. And even after the existence
of the mystery has been revealed to us, it remains impossible for
the human intellect to grasp how the Three Persons have put
one Divine Nature.” (23)
Catholic scholars karl Rahner and Herbert Vorgimler stated in
their Theological Dictionary: “The Trinity is a mystery . . . in
the strict sense . . ., which could not be known without
revelation, and even after revelation cannot become wholly
intelligible.”
“A dogma so mysterious presupposes a Divine revelation.”
(The Catholic Encyclopedia)
“God is one, and God is three. Since there is nothing like this
in creation, we cannot understand it, but only accept it.”
(Monsignor Eugene Clark)
“We know that it is a very profound mystery, which we don’t
begin to understand.” (Cardinal John O’Connor)
“The inscrutable mystery of God the Trinity.” (Pope John
Paul II) (24)

THE TRINITY DOCRINE WAS NOT
TAUGHT BY THE EARLY CHRISTIANS
The expression “God the Father”, “God the Son” and “God
the Holy Spirit” is not only synonymous to Christianity but the
core of Christian belief.
However, this belief considered as the fountainhead of the
Christian religion was not known or advocated by Jesus
(Pbuh) or the early Christians. The Apostolic Fathers and
those of the succeeding generations up to the last quarter of
the 4th century C.E. never have thought of a triune God. They
believed in One Omnificent, Omnipotent, Omniscient and
Transcendent Creator Who alone is to be worshipped.
The following authentic reports taken from different
Christian authorities speak for themselves:
“The formulation ‘one God in three Persons’ was not solidly
established into Christian life and its profession of faith, prior to
the end of the 4th century. But it is precisely this formulation
that has first claim to the title the Trinitarian dogma. Among the
Apostolic Fathers there had been nothing even remotely
approaching such a mentality or perspective.” (25)
The doctrine of the Trinity was coined by the Christians about
three hundred years after Jesus. The four Canonical Gospels,
written between 70 and 115 C.E., contain no reference to the
Trinity. Even St. Paul, who imported many foreign ideas into
Christianity, knew nothing of the Triune God. The New
Catholic Encyclopaedia 4(bearing the Nhil Obstat and
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
30
Imprimature, indicating official approval) admits that the
doctrine of the Trinity was unknown to the early Christians
and that it was formulated in the last quarter of the 4th
century:
” If is difficult, in the second half of the 20th century to offer
a clear, objective, and straightforward account of the revelation,
doctrinal evaluation, and theological elaboration of the mystery
of the Trinity. Trinitarian discussion, Roman Catholic as well as
other, presents a somewhat unsteady silhouette.
Two things have happened. There is the recognition on the part
exegetes and Biblical theologians, including a constantly
growing number of Roman Catholics, that one should not speak
of Trinitarianism in the New Testament without serious
qualification. There is also the closely parallel recognition on
the part of historians of dogma and systematic theologians that
when one does speak of an unqualified Trinitarianism, one has
moved from the period of Christian origins to, say, the last
quadrant of the 4th century. It was only then that what might be
called the definitive Trinitarian dogma ‘one God in three
persons’ became thoroughly assimilated into Christian life and
thought.” (26)
“At first the Christian faith was not Trinitarian . . . It was not
so in the apostolic and sub-apostolic ages, as reflected in the
(New Testament) and other early Christian writings.”
(Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics)
“The early Christians, however, did not at first think of
applying the (Trinity) idea to their own faith. They paid their
devotions to God the Father and to Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
31
and they recognized the . . . Holy Spirit; but there was no
thought of these three being an actual Trinity, co-equal and
united in One.” (The Paganism in Our Christianity) (27)
DOES THE BIBLE TEACH
THE TRINITY DOCTRINE?
While the Bible is preached and believed as the Word of God,
it does not contain the celebrated doctrine of the Trinity. If
this Trinity doctrine were true, it should be clearly presented
in the Bible because we need to know God and the way to
worship Him.
Not anyone among the prophets of God from Adam down to
Jesus (Pbut), had the concept of the Trinity or a Triune God.
No one of the messengers of God spoke any veiled statement to
that effect or is there any reference either in the Old or New
Testaments of the Bible confirming of such doctrine. It is,
therefore, strange that neither Jesus (Pbuh) nor his disciples
speak about the Trinity in the Bible. On the contrary, Jesus
(pbuh) says: “The Lord our God, the Lord is one. . . ” (Mark
12:29, The Bible). And according to St. Paul: “Men of Israel,
hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by
God with mighty works and wonders and signs which God did
through him in your midst, as you yourselves know.” (Acts 2:22,
The Bible)
The above verses speak for themselves. Why should one
bother over a doctrine full of confusion when Christian
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
32
scholars of the highest eminence are unable to interpret or
explain it intelligibly?
Jesus (Pbuh) has rightfully prophesied this kind of problem in
(Matthew 15:8-9, The Bible): “This people honours me with
their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship
me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.”
In addition, it was followed by St. Paul in (2 Timothy 4:3-4,
The Bible): “For the time is coming when people will not
endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will
accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and
will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into
myths.”
Further we also read in (Titus 2:26, The Bible): “They profess
to know God, but they deny him by their deeds; they are
detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good deed.”
In the midst of this dilemma, great minds among the
Christians exhausted all known logic to lend credence to the
doctrine of Trinity but failed miserably and subsequently
declared it to be a mystery. However, the worship of Almighty
God cannot be compromised. He wants man to worship Him
alone according to His Divine Guidance. Being Himself Just, it
follows that His justice demands that His Message must be
clear and simple in form. Its teachings, as a whole, must be
devoid of any flaw, superstition and confusion. It must be an
absolute truth that can always withstand the challenge of any
kind of knowledge including human discoveries in the field of
science. Since the Trinity doctrine is a “mystery” by itself, as
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
33
such, it cannot be regarded as divinely breathed. The Bible
says: “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.” (1
Corinthians 14:33, The Bible)
About the Hebrew Scripture
The Encyclopedia of Religion admits:
“Theologians today are in agreement that the Hebrew Bible
does not contain a doctrine of the Trinity”. And the New
Catholic Encyclopedia also says: “The doctrine of the Holy
Trinity is not taught in the Old Testament.”
Similarly, in his book The Triune God, Jesuit Edmund
Fortman admits: “The Old Testament . . . tells us nothing
explicitly or by necessary implication of a Triune God who is
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. . . There is no evidence that any
sacred writer ever suspected the existence of a (Trinity) within
the Godhead. . . Even to see in (the “Old Testament”)
suggestions or foreshadowings or ‘veiled signs’ of the trinity of
persons, is to go beyond the words and intent of the sacred
writers.” (28)
About the Greek Scripture
The Encyclopedia of Religion says: “Theologians agree that
the New Testament also does not contain” an explicit doctrine of
the Trinity.
Jesuit Forman states: “The New Testament writers . . . give
us no formal or formulated doctrine of the Trinity, no explicit
teaching that in one God there are three co-equal divine persons
. . . . Nowhere do we find any trinitarian doctrine of three
distinct subjects of divine life and activity in the same Godhead.”

34
The New International Dictionary of New Testament
Theology similarly states: “The (New Testament) does not
contain the developed doctrine of the Trinity. ‘The Bible lacks
the expressed declaration that the Father, the Son and the Holy
Spirit are of equal essence.’ [said Protestant theologian Karl
Barth’ “
“Historian Arthur Weigall Notes: “Jesus Christ never
mentioned such a phenomenon, and nowhere in the New
Testament does the word ‘Trinity’ appear. The idea was only
adopted by the Church three hundred years after the death of
our Lord.” “Paganismin Our Christianity” (29)
REJECTION OF THE TRINITY DOCTRINE
BY MODERN CHRISTIANS
Many Modern Christian Theologians to toe the line of the
established of the Churches. The latest and most prominent of
them is the new Bishop of Durban, Bishop David Jenkins,
Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Leeds
University, says that some of the events in Jesus’ early
mission: “WERE NOT STRICTLY TRUE BUT WERE ADDED
TO THE STORY OF JESUS BY THE EARLY CHRISTIANS
TO EXPRESS THEIR FAITH IN HIM AS A MESSIAH.” (30)
Prof. John Hick says: “What the orthodoxy developed as the
two natures of Jesus, divine and human coinhering in the one
historical Jesus Christ remains a form of words without
assignable meanings.” He further says: “For to say, without
explanation, that the historical Jesus of Nazareth was also God
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
35
is as devoid of meaning as to say that this circle drawn with a
pencil on paper is also a square. Such a locution has to be given
semantic content: and in the case of the language of incarnation
every content thus far suggested has had to be repudiated.” He
went on to suggest that the divine incarnation is a mythological
idea. Again he said: “I am using the term ‘myth’ in the
following sense. “a myth is a story which is told but which is not
literally true, or an idea or image which is applied to someone or
something but which does not literally apply.” “That Jesus was
God the Son incarnate is not literally true, since it has no literal
meaning, but it is an application to Jesus of a mythical concept
whose function is analogous to that of the notion of divine
sonship ascribed in ancient world to a king.” (31)
The words of Victor Paul Wierwille in his book: “Jesus Christ
is not God”: “I am saying that Jesus Christ is not God, but the
Son of God. They are not “co-eternal, without beginning or end,
and co-equal.” Jesus Christ was not literally with God in the
beginning; neither does he have all the assets of God.” (32)
Victor Paul Wierwille’s empathic comment: “Before closing,
let me bare my soul. To say that Jesus Christ is not God does not
in my mind degrade the importance and significance of Jesus
Christ in any way. It simply elevates God, the Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ, to His unique, exalted and unparalleled position.
He alone is God.” (33)
I believe that Jesus (Pbuh) was crated by God; that he was the
“Messiah” (anointed) and a Messenger of God; that he was
the word of God conveyed to Mary and a spirit from Him. I do
not accept him as God or the God lncarnate, Son of God nor
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
36
God the Son. God and Jesus (Pbuh) are distinct and separate
beings. God is the Creator and Jesus (Pbuh) was the created
being. They are of different substances and unequal in time,
power, knowledge and position.
The numerous categorical statements of Jesus and those of the
previous prophets of God (Pbut), found in the Bible nullify
both the concepts of the “GOD INCARNATE” and the
“TRINITY DOCTRINE”. Whatever is contrary to my
statements is nothing but hearsay made by individuals who
need to substantiate their claims. The evidence they have on
hand are at best interpolations that have crept into the
original Gospel of Jesus (pbuh) and earlier messages of God.
“Jesus (Pbuh) is not God but only a great prophet and
messenger of God.”
TEACHING OF THE PROPHETS OF GOD
Strangely, none of the prophets before or after Jesus (Pbuh)
taught the doctrine of the Trinity. Rather, they proclaimed the
Oneness of God. God alone is transcendent. He is the
Almighty and Creator of everything seen and unseen and has
no sharer, partner or associate, family, offspring or helper in
His Godhead. He alone is the Cherisher and the Sustainer of
the entire creation. The following constitute the teachings of
the prophets of God:
Prophet Moses (pbuh) says: “Now I know that the LORD is
greater than all gods, because he delivered the people from
under the hands of the Egyptians…” (Exodus 18:11, The Bible)
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
37
“The LORD our God, is one LORD, and you shall love the
LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and
with all your might.” And these words which I command you
this day shall be upon your hearts; and shall teach them
diligently to your children., and shall talk of them when you sit
in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie
down, and when you rise. And you shall bind them as a sign
upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your
eyes. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house
and on your gates. (Deut. 6:4-9, The Bible)
“Take heed to yourselves, lest you forget the covenant of the
LORD your God, which he made with you, and make a graven
image in the form of anything which the Lord your God has
forbidden you. For the Lord your God is a devouring fire, a
jealous God.” (Deut. 45:23, The Bible)
The same concept of God is corroborated by Jesus (Pbuh).
(Mark 12:29, The Bible) “. . . The Lord our God, is one LORD
. . .” Both prophets (All the prophets peace be upon them)
emphatically stressed the point that their LORD and our
LORD is One God. It is also noteworthy, that there is nothing
in their statements which indicate that either of them shared
the Godhead.”
“There is none holy like the LORD, there is none besides
thee; there is no rock like our God.” (1 Samuel 2:2, The Bible)
Prophet David (Pbuh) says in Psalms of the Bible: “‘Let them
know that thou alone, whose name is the LORD, art the Most
High over all the earth.” (Verse 83:18) “Bless the LORD, O my
soul! O LORD my God, thou art very great!” (Verse 104:1);
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
38
“He is the LORD our God.” (Verse 105:7); “The LORD is God
and He has given light” (verse 118:27); “Thou art my God, and
I will give thanks to thee.” (Verse 118:28);
Prophet Solomon (Pbuh) says: “The fear of the LORD is the
beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is
insight.” (Proverbs 9:10, The Bible)
The following words were commonly attributed to Prophet
Solomon (Pbuh): “Fear God, and keep His commandments; for
this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13, The Bible)
Prophet Isaiah (Pbuh) says: “The LORD is the Everlasting
God, the Creator of the ends of the earth…” (Isaiah 40:28, The
Bible)
Definetely, only the Creator is God, Who created everything
(the whole universe and its contents) thousands of years ago
before the advent of Jesus (Pbuh). Jesus himself was created
by God and so the Holy Spirit. In fact, there was no Trinity
until it was formulated by men in the third century C.E.
“. . . You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only
shall you serve.” Jesus (Pbuh) asserted that no one is worthy to
be worshipped except God alone.
(Matthew 4:10 and Luke 4:8, The Bible)
Prophet Jesus (Pbuh) says: “And this is eternal life, that they
know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou has
sent.” (John 17:3, The Bible)
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
39
The above statements of Jesus (Pbuh) prove that there is only
one Divine person “Thee only true God” and that he knew
nothing of the Trinity. Besides, Jesus (Pbuh) laid no claim to
Godhood, for he referred to a Being “Thee” as the only true
God and himself only a messenger of God, i.e., “Jesus Christ
whom Thou has sent”.
St. Paul was aware about the existence of the Trinity. He says:
“Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man
attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs
which God did through him in your midst. . .” (Acts 2:22, The
Bible)
“For although there may be so-called gods in heaven, or on
earth – as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords” – yet
for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things
and for whom we exist. . .” (1 Corinthians 8:5-6, The Bible)
Say ye: “We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us,
and to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that
given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) Prophets from
their Lord: we make no difference between one and another of
them: and we submit to Allah.” (Al-Baqarah, 2:136, the
Qura’n)
We sent Noah to his people. He said: “O my people! Worship
Allah! Ye have no other god but Him. I fear for you the
Punishment of a dreadful Day!” (Al-‘Araf, 7:59, The Qur’an)
And Abraham enjoined upon his sons and so did Jacob: “O
my sons! Allah hath chosen the Faith for you; then die not
except in the state of submission (to Allah).
(Al-Baqarah, 2:132, The Qur’an)

Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was
Upright, and bowed his will to Allah’s Will (which is Islam). And
he joined not gods with Allah. (Al-I’mran, 3:67, The Qur’an)
Were ye witnesses when Death appeared before Jacob?
Behold, he said to his sons; “What will ye worship after me?”
They said: “We shall worship thy God and the God of thy
fathers, of Abraham, Ismail and Isaac,- The One (True) God; to
Him do we submit.” (Al-Baqarah, 2:133, The Qura’n)
To the ‘Ad people, (We sent) Hud, one of their (own)
brethren: He said: “O my people! Worship Allah!” (Al-A’raf,
7:65, The Qur’an)
To the Thamud people (We sent) Salih, one of their own
brethren: He said: “O my people! Worship Allah; ye have no
other god but Him. . . ” (Al-A’raf, 7:73, The Qur’an)
To the Madyan people We sent Shu’ab, of the own brethren:
he said: “O my people! Worship Allah; ye have no other god but
Him…” (Al-A’raf, 7:85, The Qur’an)
Aaron had already, before this said to them: “O my people!
Ye are being tested in this: For verily your Lord is (Allah) Most
Gracious: so follow me and obey my command.”
(Ta-Ha, 20:90, The Qur’an)
And (remember) Job, when he cried to his Lord: “Truly
distress has seized me, but Thou art the Most Merciful of those
that are Merciful.” (Al-Anbiyaa, 21:83, The Qur’an)

We gave knowledge to David and Solomon: and they both
said: “Praise be to Allah, Who has favoured us above many of
His servants who believe!” (An-Naml, 27:15, The Qur’an)
And to Solomon was David’s heir. He said: “O ye people! We
have been taught the speech of Birds, and we have been given of
everything this indeed Grace manifest (from Allah).” (An-Naml,
27:16, The Qur’an)
And (remember) Zakariya, When he cried to his Lord: “O
my Lord! Leave me not without offspring, though Thou art the
best of inheritors. So We listened to him; And We granted him
Yehya (John): We cured his wife’s (barrenness) for him. . . “
(Al-Anbiyaa, 21:89-90, The Qur’an)
Prophet Jesus (Pbuh) says: “It is Allah Who is my Lord and
your Lord: then worship Him. This is a Way that is straight.”
(Al-‘Imran, 3:51, The Qur’an)
When Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) was asked by someone
what act he should do to enter Paradise, he says: “You should
worship Allah, associating nothing with Him…” (Al-Bukhari –
Sayings of Prophet Muhammad [Pbuh])
Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh), says: “If anyone testifies that
none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Alone, Who
has no partners that Muhammad is His Messenger and Jesus is
Allah’s Messenger and His Word which He bestowed on Mary
and a Soul from Him and that the Paradise is true and the Hell
is true, Allah will admit him into Paradise with the deeds which
Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
42
he has done even if those deeds were few.” (Al-Bukhari –
Sayings of Prophet Muhammad [Pbuh])
In another authentic Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh),
he says: “He who dies knowing there is no god but Allah, enters
Paradise.” (Al-Bukhari – Sayings of Prophet Muhammad
[Pbuh])
Ibn ‘Abbas reported that Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) said: “I
want to teach you something. Obey Allah, and He will look after
you. Safeguard His commandments, and He will ever be with
you (as your protector). When you must ask, ask Allah alone;
when you must seek help, seek help from Allah alone.
Remember, if all of mankind joined to help you, they could only
help you to the extend that Allah has already decreed; and if all
of mankind joined to harm you, they could not harm you except
to the extent that Allah has already decreed for you.” (Tirmidhi
– Sayings of Prophet Muhammad [Pbuh])
In another sayings of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh): “Allah will
not punish people for their sins except in the case of one who is
disobedient, defiant, and rebellious against Allah and who
refuses to believe that there is no God but Allah.” (Sayings of
Prophet Muhammad [Pbuh]) (34)
“Jesus was not a Christian; he was a Jew. He did not preach
a new faith, but taught men to do the will of God; and in his
opinion, as also in that of the Jews, the will of God was to found
in the Law and in the other books of scripture.” (35)

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT GOD
AND JESUS (PBUH)
The following passages from the Bible projects the true nature
of God and Jesus (Pbuh). It is clear now that God alone is the
Supreme, the Ruler, the Infallible –and the Transcendent.
Jesus (Pbuh), a finite BEING, SUFFERS FROM WANTS
AND IS SUBJECT OF God’s Will. All his statements and
actions clearly indicate his subordination to God.

  1. Testimony of the Bible about God
    The teaching of the Old and the New Testaments are essentially
    Monotheistic and that the New Testament is not a swing from
    One to Three-in-one God. Jesus affirmed this teaching when he
    said: “Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the
    prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfill them.
    For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an
    iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished.”
    (Matt. 5:17-18, The Bible)
    God’s statements are simple, clear and free from contradiction
    and confusion. Here are some of the “inspired words” of God
    in the Bible. Thus, God says:
    “I am God Almighty.” (Genesis 17:1, The Bible)
    “Who is like thee, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like
    thee, majestic in holiness, terrible in glorious deeds, doing
    worders?” (Exodus 15:11, The Bible)

    “I am the LORD your God.” (Exodus 20:2, The Bible)
    “You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not
    make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything
    that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is
    in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or
    serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God…”
    (Exodus 20:3-5, The Bible)
    These verses categorically prohibits all kinds of images of
    God, both naturalistic or representational art. No image can
    be adequate of God than Himself. He, being transcendent
    cannot be portrayed by man except by what He revealed of
    Himself as His Divine Atrributes conveyed through prophets.
    “. . . I am the LORD your God. Do not turn to idols or make
    for yourselves molten gods. I am the LORD your God.”
    (Leviticus 19:3- 4, The Bible)
    “God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man that he
    should repent.” (Numbers 23:19, The Bible)

    “For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (he is
    God!), who formed the earth and made it (he established it; he
    did not create it a chaos, he formed it to be inhabited): “I am the
    LORD, and there is no other.” (Isaiah 45:18, The Bible)

    Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is my throne and the earth is

    “But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God and the

    and from under the heavens.” (Jeremiah 10:10-11, The Bible)
    “I am the LORD your God” (Hosea 13:4, The Bible)
  2. Testimony of the Bible about Jesus (Pbuh)
    The birth of Jesus (Pbuh) was foretold: “In the sixth month,
    the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named
    Nazareth, to a virgin bethroded to a man whose name was
    Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was
    Mary.” (Luke 1:26-27, The Bible) Here, God did not step
    down to become flesh as claimed by the churches, instead He
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    47
    sent His angel Gabriel to inform Mary about the God’s Plan.
    Jesus (Pbuh) was a spirit created in the womb of Mary by
    God’s power. Hence, it negates the doctrine of God incarnate,
    and thus renders the claim as baseless.
    Angel Gabriel informed Mary: “And behold you will conceive
    in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name
    Jesus.” (Luke 1:31, The Bible)
    So, who were the members of the Trinity (i.e., Three-in-One
    Godhead) before the birth of Jesus (Pbuh)? There has been
    only One True God in the beginning, Who lives forever. The
    Trinity was a switch from the belief of One God (Monotheism)
    to three Gods (polytheism and paganism). Before Jesus
    (Pbuh), people believed in only One God, but after his birth,
    the churches added two more persons in the Godhead.
    Secondly, when Jesus (Pbuh) was a fetus, was the Almighty
    God also infused? Since the Trinitarians claim that the two or
    the three Persons being united in ONE BODY. Did all of them
    grew up as one fetus in the Mary’s womb? If so, why did she
    deliver Jesus alone? How childish and how nauseous to think
    of Jesus (Pbuh) united in body with God?
    God, Who has no beginning and no end created the heavens
    and the earth, and everything in between them millions of
    years ago, much before the advent of human civilization.
    Many a generations have passed away before the birth of
    Jesus (Pbuh).
    “And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he
    was called Jesus . . .” (Luke 2:21, The Bible) What a
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    48
    blasphemy against God! If Jesus (Pbuh) is the true God, do
    you believe that he needs to be circumcised?
    “And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom;
    and the favour of God was upon him.”. (Luke 2:40, The Bible)
    At first, this “god” Jesus was not knowledgeable when young
    but acquired wisdom when he reached adolescence. True
    God’s wisdom neither increases or decreases nor is He subject
    of time and space because He is all the time perfect and
    absolute.
    When Jesus (Pbuh) prayed “The Lord’s Prayer” (Luke 11:2- 4,
    The Bible) Does one pray’s to ones own soul? Certainly Not!
    Hence this distinguishes the true God from Prophet Jesus
    (Pbuh). In addition, Jesus’ will is separate from that of God’s
    Will, which indicates that they are not one and co-equal.
    It is mentioned that Prophet Jesus fasted: “And he fasted forty
    days and forty nights, and afterward he was hungry . . .” (Matt.
    4:2, The Bible) Fasting is one way of atoning one’s sin and
    showing obedience and subservience to a superior. God is
    neither subservient to anyone nor need to fast to atone for His
    sins, not even to suffer wants, rather, unlike Jesus (Pbuh) God
    is free from anything because He alone is Supreme and
    Perfect.
    A big gathering of people came to listen to Jesus (Pbuh) and
    brought many sick persons who were healed of their
    infirmities. (Matt.15:31, The Bible) “And so, they glorified the
    God of Israel.” How come that the God of the Christians are
    THREE while the God of Israel is ONE?
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    49
    “And going a little further he fell on his face and prayed,
    ‘Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless,
    not as I will, but as thou wilt.” (Matt. 26:29 and Mark 14:35-
    36, the Bible). To whom did Jesus (Pbuh) address his prayer?
    Was it to himself being a part of the Godhead? Definitely not!
    In fact, Jesus (Pbuh) always prayed to God for help even when
    he raised up Lazarus to life. (John 11:41-43, The Bible) Jesus
    (Pbuh) had always been thankful to God which indicates his
    total helplessness and subservience to God.
    “In the morning, as he was returning to the city, he was
    hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the wayside he went to it, and
    found nothing on it but leaves only.” (Matt.21:18-19, The
    Bible) A god to feel hungry and ignorant of the seasons of tree
    bearing fruit!
    St. Paul says: “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of
    Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and
    wonders and signs which God did through him in your midst . .
    ” (Acts 2:2, The Bible) Here, it is clear what Paul meant by the
    words “attested to by God” – is “anointed by God” or
    “Chosen by God – as prophet”.
  3. What Jesus (Pbuh) Says About God and Himself
    Jesus Christ (Pbuh) never mentioned about the Trinity nor
    was aware of there being three Divine Persons in Godhead.
    His concept was the same as those of the earlier Israelite
    prophets, who preached the Oneness of God.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    50
    “The first is ‘Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God, the Lord is
    one; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
    and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your
    strength.” (Mark 12:29- 30, The Bible)
    “You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall
    you serve.” This can be found in the Gospels of (Matthew 4:10)
    and (Luke 4:8) both in the Bible: Jesus (Pbuh) says that only
    God is to be worshipped.
    “The Lord our God, the Lord is One. . .” (Mark12:29, The
    Bible) Jesus (Pbuh) affirms the Oneness of God.
    “. . . but he who does the will of my Father who is in
    heaven.” (Matt. 7:21, The Bible) It is clear that God was in
    heaven and Jesus (Pbuh) on earth, Therefore how could they
    be united in one body?
    The Christian creed states that the ‘Three Persons’ are united
    in one body (three-in-one God). How is it possible for all
    members of the Trinity to be full God when each of them
    constitute only 1/3 of the Godhead?
    “And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true
    God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3, The
    Bible) Here, Jesus (Pbuh) draws a line between God and
    himself. To achieve eternal life is to know (acknowledge) the
    true God and Jesus (Pbuh) was sent only as a messenger of
    God.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    51
    Jesus (Pbuh) says: “Why do you call me good? No one is good
    but God alone.” (Mark 10:18, The Bible) Jesus (Pbuh) asserts
    that no one is good except God, thus distinguishing God from
    him.
    “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the
    angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”
    (Matt. 24:36 and Mark 13:32) of the Bible. Jesus (Pbuh)
    admits that his knowledge is restricted unlike God, Who is
    All-knowing. Also, Judgment belongs to God alone Who keeps
    all secrets for Himself.
    “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own
    accord . .” (John 5:19, The Bible) Here, Jesus (Pbuh)
    acknowledge his dependence on God.
    “I can do nothing on my own authority: as I hear, I judge:
    and my judgment in just; because I seek not my own will, but the
    will of him who sent me.” (John 5:30, The Bible)
    “For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will,
    but the will of him who sent me.” (John 6:38, The Bible).
    “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.” (John 7:16,
    the Bible).
    ” … I do nothing on my own authority but speak thus as the
    Father taught me.” (John 8:28, The Bible)
    Jesus (Pbuh) makes it abundantly clear that he lack divine
    power. On his own could do nothing since God alone is the
    only source of power and authority.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    52
    “But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the
    truth, which I have heard of God . . .” (John 8:40, The Bible)
    Jesus (Pbuh) confessed that he was just a Messenger fulfilling
    the mission commanded on him by one on High.
    Further, Prophet Jesus (Pbuh) says: “. . . I am ascending to my
    Father, and your Father, and to my God and your God.” (John
    23:17, The Bible) This very verse puts an end to the TRINITY
    and INCARNATION DOCTRINES. It shows Jesus’ other
    human being i.e., praying and seeking help from Him.
    All the above verses pinpoint Jesus’ (pbuh) inferiority,
    weakness and dependence on God’s favor.
    WHAT THE QUR’AN SAYS ABOUT GOD
    The Qur’an is the last and final Revelation of Almighty Allah
    (God). He reveals about Himself in the most lucid manner that
    do not admit other interpretation except that of the meanings
    of the written words. The words of Almighty Allah and that of
    His Prophets are words of Truth. No doubt, His words are
    clear, simple and self-explanatory without confusion. Allah is
    the Originator of the heavens and the earth, whose Power and
    Knowledge is limitless. He is the LORD, the Exalted and the
    Provider for all creations. Therefore, men should not get
    deceived by false illusions that there can be other gods other
    than the Supreme Ruler.

    53
    Let’s reflect on what the Qur’an says about Allah (God), Who
    posess Perfect Attributes befitting only to the True Deity, Who
    alone is Transcendent:
    In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
    Praise be to Allah the Cherisher and Sustainer of the
    Worlds:
    Most Gracious, Most Merciful;
    Master of the Day of Judgment.
    Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek. (Al-Fatiha,
    1:1- 5, The Qur’an)
    O ye people! Worship your Guardian Lord, Who created you
    and those who came before you that ye may become righteous.
    Who has made the earth your couch and the heavens your
    canopy; and sent down rain from the heavens; and brought
    forth therewith fruits for your sustenance; then set not up rivals
    unto Allah when ye know (the truth). (Al-Baqarah, 2:21- 22,
    The Qur’an)
    How can ye reject the faith in Allah? – Seeing that ye were
    without life, and He gave you life; then will He cause you to die,
    and will again bring you to life; and again to Him will ye return.
    It is He Who hath created for you all things that are on
    earth; then He turned to the heavens and made them into seven
    firmaments. And of all things He hath perfect knowledge. (AlBaqarah, 2:28- 29, The Qur’an)
    The Originator of the heavens and the earth: when He
    decreeth a matter, He saith to it: “Be,” and it is. (Al-Baqarah,
    2:117, The Qur’an)

    54
    Allah! There is no god but He,-the Living, the SelfSubsisting, Supporter of all. No slumber can seize Him nor
    sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is
    there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He
    knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) Before or After or
    Behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge
    except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens
    and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and
    preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in
    glory). (Al-Baqarah, 2:225, The Qur’an)
    … It is Allah that gives Life and Death, and Allah sees well
    all that ye do.
    (Al-‘Imran, 3:156, The Qur’an)
    O mankind! Fear your Guardian Lord, Who created you
    from A single Person; created, out of it, his mate, and from them
    twain scattered (like seeds) countless men and women; – Fear
    Allah, through Whom ye demand your mutual (rights ), and be
    heedful of the wombs (that bore you): for Allah ever watches
    over you.
    (Al-Nisaa, 4:1, The Qur’an)
    Say: “Will ye worship, besides Allah, something which hath
    no power either to harm or benefit you? But Allah, – He it is that
    heareth and knoweth all things.”
    (Al-Maidah, 5:76, The Qur’an)
    Say: “Shall I take for my protector any other than Allah, the
    Maker of the heavens and the earth? And He it is that Feedeth
    but is not fed.”

    55
    Say: “Nay! but I am commanded to be the first of those who
    bow to Allah (in Islam), and be not thou of the company of those
    who join gods with Allah.”
    (Al-An’am, 6:14, The Qur’an)
    Do they indeed ascribe to Him (Allah) as partners things that
    can create nothing, but are themselves created?
    No aid can they give them, nor can they aid themselves!
    (Al-Araf, 7:191- 192, The Qur’an)
    Allah! There is no god but He! To Him belong the Most
    Beautiful Names.
    (Ta-Ha, 20:8, The Qur’an)
    Or, who originates Creation, then repeats it, and who gives
    you sustenance from heaven and earth? (Can there be another)
    god besides Allah? Say, “Bring forth your argument, if ye are
    telling the truth!”
    Say: None in the heavens or on earth, except Allah, knows
    what is hidden: nor can they perceive when they shall be raised
    up (for Judgment).
    (Al-Naml, 27:64- 65, The Qur’an)
    To Allah belong all things in heaven and earth: verily Allah
    is He (that is) free of all wants, worthy of all praise.
    (Luqman, 31:26, The Qur’an)
    Of Him seeks (its need) every creature in the heavens and on
    earth: every day in (new) Splendour doth He (shine)!

    Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god;- the
    Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection),
    the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in
    Might, the Irresistible, the justly Proud, Glory to Allah! (High is
    He) above the partners they attribute to Him.
    (Al-Hashr, 59:23, The Qur’an)
    It is He Who has created you; and of you are some that are
    Unbelievers, and some that are Believers: And Allah sees well
    all that ye do. (Tagabun, 64:2, The Qur’an)
    Say: He is Allah, the One;
    Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;
    He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;
    And there is none like unto Him.

    BIBLICAL EVIEDNCE OF
    THE TRINITY DOCTRINE
    The Trinitarians, in support of the Trinity, quote only some
    verses from the Bible whose interpretations are very strange.
    They are either far from the context or the original text. The
    Bible on the whole teach Monothesism (the Oneness of God)
    from the first book (Genesis) up to the last book (Revelation).
    The following are some of the verses quoted as proof for the
    presence of the Trinity doctrine:
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    57
    The First evidence put forth is the verse found in I John 5:7,
    The Bible) which is in the King James Version (KJ) of the
    Bible, authorized in 1611: “For there are three that bear record
    in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost.” This
    verse has been expunged from most of the revised editions of
    the Bible as it was found to be not from the original
    manuscript but a later addition. (36)
    The Second evidence is in (Matthew 28:19, The Bible): “Go
    therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the
    name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
    The Third evidence is in (2 Corinthians 13:13-14, The Bible):
    “All the saints greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and
    the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you
    all.”
    The Fourth evidence is in (1 Corinthians 12:4-6, The Bible):
    “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there
    are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are
    varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all
    in every one.”
    As for the second, third and fourth evidence, the mere
    mention of names (designations) does not at all constitute
    Trinity, more than that of enumerating them. They, in fact, are
    three separate beings with varying statures and
    circumstances. The three were never equal in time, position,
    knowledge, power as the doctrine of the Trinity is defined. In
    addition, when Jesus was baptized according to (Matthew
    3:16, The Bible), God’s Spirit descended on him in the form of
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    58
    a dove. That being so, how could Jesus (pbuh) be claimed as
    part of the Trinity when he had always been with the holy
    spirit?
    Some of the verses in the Bible given as proof elevating Jesus
    Christ (pbuh) as God for the later formation of the Trinity
    doctrine:
    First example: “Let us make man in our image . . .” (Genesis
    1:26, The Bible). Some Christian theologians deduce that God
    was not one and alone at the time of the creation. However,
    God speaks of Himself in the first person plural and this can
    be explained as an intensive plural from which signify God’s
    greatness and majesty and glory. Christian scholars explain
    this as denoting the fullness of divine strength or the unlimited
    power manifested in God or the omnificence of God in its
    entirety. Some call it Plural of respect and in grammar it is
    referred to as a plural of majesty. In Genesis, the first book of
    the Bible, God alone without helper had effected the Creation
    (e.g., chapter 1, verse 3, The Bible): “God said, ‘Let there be
    light’; and there was light”. In verse 27 of the same chapter, it
    says: “So God created man in his own image”. The verses
    above do not indicate any helper or companion of God
    whatsoever. And, the verb describing what God said and did is
    singular (e.g., God saw that the light was good, God made the
    firmament God created man, God blessed them, God finished
    his work, etc.)
    At the beginning of the book of Genesis, we read: “In the
    beginning God created the heavens and the earth . .” Take note,
    that while the word heavens is in the plural from the words
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    59
    God and earth are in singular. Why is the word heavens plural?
    The reason is simple; The Qur’an tells us that the heaven is
    made up of Seven Firmaments. And, why The Bible writers
    maintain the words God and earth in singular forms? It was
    because they know of certainty that the earth is ONLY ONE
    and God is ONLY ONE as taught by all the prophets of God.
    Second example: “In the beginning was the Word, and the
    Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1, The
    Bible) Take note, that it was not Jesus (pbuh) speaking,
    rather, it was John. Besides, every Christian scholar of the
    Bible accept that this particular verse was phrased by a Jew,
    named Philo of Alexandria in Egypt before the avent of Jesus
    and John the Baptist, peace be upon them.
    Further, many translators of Greek Manuscript to English of
    (John 1:1, The Bible) write the first occurence of God that
    beings in capital “G” referring to God Almighty but in the
    second occurence of God they write in small “g”. Such small
    “g” is used ordinarily for creatures not for God Almighty like
    in Psalms (82:6, The Bible): Say, “You are gods sons of the
    Most High, all of you; nevertheless, you shall die like men, and
    fall like any prince.” And in II Corinthians (4:4, The Bible):
    “In their case the god of this world has blinded their minds of
    the unbelievers…” Since this Word (second occurence), is
    “with God”. He could not be the God Almighty but it is only a
    “god” like the examples above.
    Hence, modern translators of the Bible render the meaning of
    (John1:1, The Bible) in the following examples:
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    60
    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
    God; and the Word was a god.” (37)
    “In the beginning the Word was, and the Word was with
    God, and the Word was a god.” (38)
    In another angel, some Christian scholars translated the
    “Word” as being the “Divine Command”, thus, they claimed
    that the correct phraseology of (John 1:1-3, The Bible) must be:
    “In the beginning was the Command, and the Command was
    with the God, and the Command was Divine. This (the
    Command) was in the beginning with the God. All things were
    made by this (the Command); and without this was not anything
    made that was made.” In Greek term used by John is Logos,
    derived from lego – meaning ‘to speak’. The English term
    ‘Decalogue’ meaning ‘Ten Commandments’ is a combination
    of the Greek words deka (Ten) and logous (Commands). The
    term logos means, “God’s Spoken Command. (39)
    The word ‘with’ creates an enigmatic dilemma for those who
    prefer to render the word Logos as ‘Jesus’ instead of ‘The
    Command’. The reason is very clear: How could Jesus be with
    the God and God as well?
    The concept God’s spoken Command being ‘with the God’
    from ‘the beginning’, coincides with the biblical concept for
    the Creation. “And the God said, let there be light: and there
    was light.” (Genesis 1:3, The Bible). In the Greek text, John
    has used the definitive article ‘the’ (ho) before ‘God (Theo),
    because it is a Subject. Here, John has not used the definitive
    article ‘the’ before ‘God’ because it is a predicate. In other
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    61
    words, the term used here denotes the nature, quality,
    attribute or property of the Subject. In this instance, the
    nature of the God’s Command is Divine. In some biblical
    versions, the word ‘This’ is replaced ‘This (one)’ or ‘He’
    (Jesus)’. However, the word ‘This” refers to ‘The Spoken
    Command’
    Furthermore, it is obvious that in (John 1:1, The Bible) it was
    God alone who existed for eternity. His Words are always with
    Him, in the same breath, that your words are with you, and
    my words are with me. The Word which God utters is not
    another God or God Himself but a Divine Word (Command)
    from Him. Otherwise, every creation becomes a separate God
    since every creation represents His Word. The Same
    argument applies with (Genesis 1:3, The Bible). The light
    created by His word is not God but a creation (light) of His
    Divine Word. Therefore, the phrase “the Word was God” in
    John 1:1 in the Bible is absolutely out of place.
    In addition, if we try to read other scriptures concerning the
    Creation, we realize that God, the Creator used His Words in
    every creation in like manner as in the Qur’an (e.g., – “Quun
    faya quun” which means in English “Be”, and it is):
    The originator of the heavens and the earth: when He decreeth
    a matter, He saith to it: “Be”: and it is. (40)
    Third example: “I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30, The
    Bible). The Christians understood this verse to mean that the
    Father (God) and Jesus (Pbuh) are one and the same being;
    united in One Body; God became flesh in the person of Jesus
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    62
    (Pbuh) and lived among men. The same meaning is given in
    (John 14:10, The Bible) when Jesus (Pbuh) says: “I am in the
    Father and the Father is in me.” And also in (John 14:20, The
    Bible) where Jesus (pbuh) says: “I am in my father, and you in
    me and I in you.” However, they misinterpreted the meaning
    in verse 28 of the same chapter when Jesus (pbuh) declares:
    “If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I go to the
    Father; for the Father is greater than I.” If what Jesus (Pbuh)
    said was true that the Father is greater than him, then, this
    rest the matter at peace, that they are not co-equal.
    Also, the trinitarians do not realized that by following their
    arguments, the result would make up a total of 15 bodies
    rolled into one body. It is a “simple arithmetic” as a grade I
    school kid would put it: The Father is God, the Son (Jesus) is
    God and the Holy Spirit is God – (e.g., the Trinity) composed
    of three (3) beings (Persons) united into one God. Add to it the
    original twelve (12) disciples in the same manner as
    understood by the Christians (John 14:20) will produce a total
    of fifteen (15) beings rolled and united in one body.
    The verses in (John 17:21-23, The Bible) would give us clearer
    meaning about the nature of their being one: “That they may
    all be one even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that
    they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou
    hast sent me. The glory which thou hast given me I have given to
    them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and
    thou in me, that they may become perfectly one . . .” The above
    verses suggest no other meaning than their “unity of purpose”
    as true believers.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    63
    Besides, in (John 10:31-36, The Bible) he did not claim to be
    “God” or “God the son” (as being united with the Father
    (God), but only a separate being.
    If, on the other hand, the Trinitarians insist that (John 10:30,
    The Bible) supports the doctrine of the Trinity, then, they
    should not limit the number of their God by only three (3) but
    should add the 12 disciples in (John 14:10 and 20 in the Bible)
    as they understood their meanings, being “each one infused
    into one body.” Therefore, dilemma would be greater and the
    entangled mass (Trinity) become more problematic.
    Fourth example: “. . . He who has seen me has seen the Father.
    . .” (John 14:9, The Bible). But didn’t Jesus (Pbuh) clearly say
    that “people have never seen God,” as he says in (John 5:37) of
    he Bible)?: “And the Father Himself which Has sent me, has
    brone witness of me. You have neither heard His voice at any
    time nor seen his shape”. Here, Jesus (Pbuh) says that he is
    not God because he was talking and seeing him. And in
    (Matthew 7:21, The Bible), Jesus (Pbuh) says: “. . . my Father
    who is in heaven.” while he was at the time infront of them. All
    these statements of Jesus (pbuh) have only one meaning, i.e.,
    God and Jesus are not the same. How could the Father (God)
    and Jesus be same and united in body (as being interpreted by
    the Christians) when the Father is in heaven and Jesus (Pbuh)
    is on earth?
    To believe in God, one should admire His creation which are
    innumerable: the sun, moon, stars, and everything around us.
    In (John 4:24, The Bible), Jesus (pbuh) claims: “God is Spirit”.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    64
    So, how could anyone sees God? And in (John 1:18, The
    Bible), we read: “No one has ever seen God.”
    In addition, Jesus (Pbuh) gave a clear distinction between God
    and himself in the following verses in the John’s Gospel of the
    Bible: “verse 14:1): “Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in
    God, believe also me.” The word “also” is crucial in that, it
    shows that God is completely a separate Being from that of
    Jesus (Pbuh). In (John 17:3, the Bible): “And this is life
    eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus
    Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
    Fifth example: (John 29:28, The Bible): “My Lord and my
    God!” However, this passage has no import whatsoever
    because it is nullified by the verses cited above. Scholars are of
    the opinion that under such miraculous circumstance, the
    remarks by apostles Thomas might have been made as an
    emotional exclamation because of astonishment towards Jesus
    (Pbuh), whereas in reality, the exclamation was directed to
    God. Besides, Thomas didn’t consider Jesus (Pbuh) as God,
    for he knew very well that Jesus (Pbuh) never claimed to be
    God. (John 17:3, The Bible).
    In fact, St. Paul give another clear distinction between God
    and Jesus (Pbuh). He claimed that God raised up Jesus as
    reported in the Bible both in (1 Cor. 15:15- 20) and in (Mark
    16:19): “After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken
    up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.” If indeed,
    God and Jesus are one and the same being, would not it be
    more fitting to say: “Jesus raised himself up?” and when Jesus
    (Pbuh) was reported to have sat at the right hand of God,
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    65
    would it not be proper to say: “and Jesus sat on the “Throne”?
    The hard truth is – none is entitled to the Exalted Throne
    except God, Who is worthy of worship as claimed by Jesus
    (Pbuh) and not he. (John 17:30, the Bible).
    In another verse St. Paul explains who God is (Acts 17:24, the
    Bible): “The God who made the world and everything in it,
    being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by
    man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed
    anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and
    everything.”
    Is this difference between God and human, the Creator and
    the created, the Infinite and the finite is beyond human
    perception? No, but only the heedless, hypocrites and the
    rebellious wish not to understand.
    Additional claims elevating Jesus to Godhood.
    The Christians claim is that, Jesus (Pbuh) is God Incarnate,
    being full God and full man. This concept totally negated by
    Jesus (pbuh) with his sayings in (Matt. 1:18-20, The Bible): “I
    ascend to my father and your father and to my God and your
    God.” So, where does the question of Incarnation arise? It tells
    us in simple words that the God is distinct and separate from
    Jesus (Pbuh). Therefore it renders the doctrine of I
    NCARNATION null and void. Besides, to be full God means
    free from wants and helplessness, and to be human means,
    devoid of divinity.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    66
    Other Christians claim that Jesus (Pbuh) is God because he is
    also called “So of God”, “Messiah”, “Son of Man” and
    “Saviour”. However, Jesus spoke of “the peace makers” as
    “Sons of God”. In the Jewish tradition, any person who
    follows the Will of God was called the “Son of God.”. See
    examples quoted in the Bible: (Genesis 6:2,4) ; (Exodus 4:22);
    (Jeremiah 31:9); (Psalms 2:7); (Luke 3:38); (Romans 8:14). In
    (John 6:35), Jesus (Pbuh) says: “But love your enemies, and do
    good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward
    will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High.” Being the
    Son of God, does not elevate him to the rank of God. Like the
    son of a President does not make him the President but only
    the son.
    Further, it is quoted in the Bible that “Messiah” in Hebrew
    means “God’s anointed” and not “Christ”, and “Cyrus” the
    Persian is called “Messiah” or “the anointed” (Genesis
    31″13); (Leviticus 8:10); (Samuel 2:10); (Isaiah 45:1); (Ezekiel
    28:14). Ezekiel was addressed in the Bible as “Son of Man”.
    As for “Saviour”, In (II Kings 13:5), other individuals were
    given that title too without being gods. The term “God’s
    anointed” means giving spiritual authority to a noble man to
    spread the words of God. So, how does this term qualify and
    elevate him to the position of God?
    Another Billion Dollar Question: “What is Christianity without
    the Trinity Doctrine?”
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    67
    ADDITIONAL ARGUMENTS REFUTING
    THE TRINITY DOCTRINE
    Not once Jesus (Pbuh) referred to as “God the Son” but only
    the “God’s Son” or “Son of God” about 68 times in the New
    Testament of the Bible which meant that he is not God at all.
    To say that both references are one and the same in meaning
    negates the rules of language, leaving it absolutely useless as a
    tool for communication. (41)
    Jesus had his beginning because he was created by God. He
    was not co-eternal with God or the Almighty God’s co-equal in
    any sense; he had been always subject to God’s Will and still
    remain to be so.
    Arius defined God as ‘agenetos’ – that is, the ultimate source of
    everything who himself derived from no source. This is what
    distinguished God in his essential being from all other beings.
    The Logos (or Word) from the John’s Gospel, derived its
    existence from God and was therefore not God in the absolute
    sense. (42)
    The Trinity doctrine is a clear deviation from the original
    teachings of the prophets of God. To worship God according
    to His Will means to reject the Trinity doctrine wholesale.
    “God is not a God of confusion but of peace.” (1 Cor. 14:33,
    The Bible)
    Thus John Baker writes that “Jesus did not see himself just as
    Everyman, nor as the Saviour of the World, even less as divine
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    68
    pre-existent being from heaven.’ He admits that Jesus ‘was
    mistaken about the programme which God planned to follow’
    and goes on to argue that ‘to be in error about the details of the
    future’ is a ‘feature of the human condition’ that ‘could be
    overcome only by investing Jesus with superhuman powers
    which might indeed have satisfied the tired old dreams of
    paganism but would utterly exclude any true incarnation of
    God’. (43)
    Realizing this very truth, John Hick, editor of “The Myth of
    God Incarnate”, in his Preface, said:
    “The need arises from growing knowledge of Christian origins,
    and involves a recognition that “Jesus was as he is presented in
    (Acts 2:21, The Bible) ‘a man approved by God’ for a special
    role within the divine purpose, and that the later conception of
    him as God Incarnate, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity
    living a human life, is a mythological or poetic way of
    expressing his significance for us.” (44)
    The Christian creed states that the ‘Three Persons’ are united
    in one body (three in one God). How could any member of the
    Trinity be considered full God when in reality each of them
    constitute only 1/3 of the Godhead? It is absurd to even think
    that each one is a complete God when the three are rolled into
    one being and thus constitute one full God.
    Again, when Jesus (Pbuh) was on earth, he wasn’t complete
    God, nor was the “Father in Heaven” a whole God, which
    would contradict the sayings of Jesus (pbuh). He says in (John
    20:17, The Bible): “I am ascending to my Father and your
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    69
    Father, to my God and your God.” If God were three-in-one,
    who was the God in Heaven during the three days between the
    claimed crucifixion and the resurrection? Who was the God
    when Jesus was in Mary’s womb?
    Had this doctrine been the teaching of Jesus (Pbuh), he would
    have stated in clear terms. Whereas, the word Trinity is not
    even written in the Bible, but instead, Jesus said in (Mark
    12:29, The Bible): “The Lord our God is one God. . .”
    Many Christians never thought of the implication of a threein-one God (the Trinity). How could God be pleased or
    worshipped when one is not clear on who the God is?
    “Philosophy tells us that no being from whom another being
    can come out and exist as a separate individual and become
    equal and partner can be regarded as perfect. To attribute a son
    to God is to deny the perfection of God.” (45)
    “Elevating Jesus to God’s stature amounts to grievous
    blasphemy against the one true God, while separating Jesus
    from Godhead does not discredit Jesus but only places him in
    his noblest position as a great prophet and messenger of God.”
    “It is He (God) Who has created you; and of you are some
    that are Unbelievers, and some that are Believers: And Allah
    sees well all that ye do.” (46)
    More evidence refuting the claim of the Trinity doctrine:
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    70
    “You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my
    left is not mine to grant, but it is for those whom it has been
    prepared by my Father.” (Matthew 20:23, The Bible). On his
    own Jesus (Pbuh) lacked the power or authority to grant
    anything except what has been decreed by God, Whom he call
    “Father”.
    And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, “My
    Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless,
    not as I will, but as you wilt.” (Matthew 26:39, The Bible). Here
    Jesus (Pbuh) seeks his Father’s (God) help, emphasizing that it
    be not through his will, but by the Will of God. It is evident
    from this that his will is separate from that of God’s.
    “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matthew
    27:46, The Bible) “…Father, into thy hands I commit my
    spirit…” (Luke 23:46, The Bible) Such words i.e., “My God:
    only comes from someone who is distress. And if Jesus (Pbuh)
    was God, then by whom he was deserted? Was it by Himself?
    It’s ridiculous. God doesn’t need to commit Himself to another
    God?
    “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.”
    (Mark 10:18, The Bible) Jesus (Pbuh) stressed that none is
    greater in goodness or righteousness save God. Thus,
    disassociating himself from Godhead.
    “But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the
    angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Mark
    13:32, The Bible) – Had Jesus (Pbuh) been truly equal to God
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    71
    or part of the Trinity, he would have known whatever the
    Father knew.
    “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own
    accord….” (John 5:19, The Bible)
    “I can do nothing on my own authority…” (John 5:39, The
    Bible)
    “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.” (John 7:16,
    The Bible)
    In the three statements cited above, Jesus (Pbuh) made it clear
    that no authority or power rest in him and that what he
    preached was from God.
    “… The Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28, The Bible) –
    This statement categorically negates the Trinity doctrine since
    both are of different nature, one greater than the other.
    “And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true
    God, and Jesus whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3, The Bible)
    God was never referred in plural from by Jesus (Pbuh),
    Whom he addressed as Father.
    “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God
    and your God.” (John 20:17, The Bible) Jesus (Pbuh) was not
    God because he had his own God whom he called him
    “Father”.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    72
    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only
    Son…” (John 3:16, The Bible) If Jesus (Pbuh) is a part of the
    Trinity when all three are co-eternal, without beginning or
    end, and co-equal, how could he be a son and at the same time
    as old as his father? (see Matt. 1:18; Luke 1:26 and 1 John 4:9,
    all in the Bible)
    “For there is one God and one mediator between God and
    men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:5, The Bible): The
    statement is self-explanatory that God and Jesus (Pbuh) are
    distinct from each other.
    “The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show
    his servant what must soon take place.” (Rev. 1:1, The Bible)
    True God is omniscent, therefore, this dispels the theory of the
    Trinity.
    DOES JESUS (PBUH) ENDORSE THE
    CONCEPT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?
    God in His infinite Wisdom and Mercy, from time to time has
    sent prophets to convey His MESSAGE and invite mankind to
    righteousness (i.e., to the path of PEACE and OBEDIENCE to
    the One True God.) The Message is called ISLAM (submission
    to God’s Will).
    This message was conveyed to all nations and tribes in the
    world to successive generations inviting mankind to submit to
    the Will of God. However, all the earlier Revelations were
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    73
    distorted and corrupted by later generations and the prophets
    were ignored and persecuted. Pure Revelation of God had
    been pulluted with myths, superstitions, idol worships and
    irrational ideologies. Thus, the religion of God was lost in the
    stream of multiple false worships.
    Human history is a chronicle of man’s drift between light and
    darkness. God, out of His abundant Love and Mercy for
    mankind has not left us in the darkness to discover the right
    path by trial and error alone. He sent His last Messenger,
    Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) to guide humanity during the socalled Dark Ages. The Revelation (e.g., Holy Qur’an through
    the agency of angel Gabriel) he received represents
    comprehensive and universal in nature. This Divine Guidance
    outlines the knowledge and reality about the Omnipotent
    Creator, the universe, the purpose of our creation and our life
    in this world and the Hereafter. It will lead humanity to the
    PATH OF TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS and SUCCESS in
    this life and the next.
    To say that the coming of “another Paraclete / advocate /
    comforter / counsellor / Spirit of truth as “another prophet” like
    Moses and Jesus (Phut) is perfectly correct. The concept of
    “Holy Spirit” instead of “another prophet” is totally negated by
    the Gospel of John.
    To understand the message of Jesus (Pbuh) on the subject, one
    has to start with the First Epistle of John in (1John 2:1) of the
    Bible. Here, you will understand that Jesus (Pbuh) was the
    “original Paraclete”: “My little children, I am writing this to
    you so that you may not sin; but if any one does sin, we have an
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    74
    advocate “Paraclete” with the Father, Jesus Christ the
    righteous.”
    Jesus (Pbuh) who was the “original Paraclete” has prophesied
    the coming of “another Paraclete”. However, revisers of the
    Bible have translated this “Paraclete” into many different
    words which the readers may come across depending upon
    who wrote the Bible, (i.e., Paraclete / Advocate / Comforter /
    Helper / Counsellor / Holy Spirit / Holy Ghost / Spirit of
    truth).
    The same term “Paraclete” is used in the John’s Gospel with
    regards to the prophecy made by Jesus (Pbuh) for the coming
    of “another Paraclete”. He says: “And I will pray the Father,
    and he will give you another Counsellor (Paraclete), to be with
    you forever.” (John 14:16, the Bible). He also told his disciples
    that this “Paraclete” will teach all things and will bring all
    things for them to remember. He said in (John 14:26, The
    Bible): “But the Counsellor (Paraclete), the Holy Spirit (i.e.,
    Holy Ghost), whom the Father will send in my name, he will
    teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I
    have said to you.” and in (John 15:26, The Bible): “But when
    the Counsellor (Paraclete) is come, whom I will send to you
    from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from
    the Father, he will bear witness to me.”
    You will notice in the above verses that the (RSV) BIBLE used
    the word “Counsellor” and the same is referred above (14:25)
    as the “Holy Spirit”. But the same was changed in (John
    15:26) above. as being the “Spirit of truth” (15:26). Again, in
    the following verse below, it is reverted to a “Counsellor” but
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    75
    you will later discover that it is again reverted to as the “Spirit
    of truth” in (John 16:13, The Bible).
    (John 16:7-8, The Bible): “Nevertheless I tell you the truth : it
    is to your advantage that I go away, for if do not go away, the
    Connsellor (Paraclete) will not come to you; but if I go, I will
    send him to you. And when he comes, he will convince the world
    concerning sin and righteousness and judgment.” This has been
    confirmed in the Qur’an where God had lifted Jesus (Pbuh)
    but not crucified as claimed
    In the above verse, (John 16:7- 8, The Bible), the coming of
    “Counsellor” or “Paraclete” is dependent on the departure of
    Jesus (pbuh). Besides, Jesus (Pbuh) didn’t indicate that this
    “Paraclete” will come during his time.
    In (John 16:12-15, The Bible), Jesus (Pbuh) continued his
    prophecy for the coming of this “another Paraclete” whom he
    called him as the “Spirit of truth”. He says: “I have yet many
    things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. When the
    “Spirit of truth” (Paraclete) comes, he will not speak on his own
    authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will
    declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for
    he will take that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he
    will take what is mine and declare it to you.”.
    The above verse demolished the confusion created by the word
    Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit claimed by the Christians because
    according to the Bible in (Genesis 1:2, The Bible), this Holy
    Spirit has been on earth since the days of Creation. “It” was
    also present at the Jordan River when John baptized Jesus
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    76
    (Pbuh). So, how could Jesus say: “but if I go, I will send him
    ‘Holy Spirit’ to you?”, in (John 16:7, The Bible) What Jesus
    (Pbuh) meant was that “another Paraclete” or “another
    prophet” like him will come because sending of the Holy
    Spirit is completely ruled out because it has already been here
    on earth since the day of creation.
    Further, the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of truth are two
    separate terms and two independent entities. The later takes
    the pronoun “he” being a male figure whereas, the former one
    takes the pronoun “it” Jesus (Pbuh) was telling us in plane
    words that the Counsellor or Spirit of truth (Paraclete) whom
    he prophesied is a Man, a Prophet like him and a son of Man
    who will teach us all things.
    All the pronouns he referred to the “Spirit of truth” which
    designate masculine genders to agree with the word
    “Counsellor” in (John 16:7, The Bible). The word
    “Counsellor” is a descriptive word used in place of the “Spirit
    of truth”, and grammatically, pronouns must agree in gender
    with the noun to which they are related. So, verses 13 and 15
    of John chapter 16 prove that the Spirit of truth is not a part of
    Trinity. (47)
    Besides, in (John 16:13, The Bible) Jesus (Pbuh) stressed the
    point about this Spirit of truth, to be only a prophet who will
    instructed what to do from the Most Hight: “he will not speak
    on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak.”
    Being only a prophet (not a divine being or Holy Spirit), he
    has no authority of his own, but is given inspiration from God
    in heaven.
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    77
    Furthermore, you will notice that in (John 12:14, The Bible),
    Jesus (Pbuh) says of the Spirit of truth: “He will glorify me, for
    he will take what is mine and declare it to you.” The Qur’an
    which is the message of Muhammad (Pbuh) has glorified both
    Jesus (Pbuh) and his mother Mary. The name Jesus (Pbuh)
    was mentioned in the Holy Qur’an five times more than the
    name Muhammad. And the fact, that the whole chapter 19 of
    the Holy Qur’an was specifically in the name after his mother
    Mary (i.e., Chapter Maryam), proved eloquently our
    arguments that, indeed, Jesus (pbuh) was glorified
    exceedingly.
    In addition, Jesus (Pbuh), says: “he will teach you all things
    and bring to your remembrance all that I have told you.” That is
    why the message of Muhammad (Pbuh) which is the Holy
    Qur’an is a complete message that includes the message of
    Jesus (Pbuh) and all the previous messages. In fact, the
    Qur’an is the confirmation of the message of Jesus (Pbuh) and
    those which came before it. It is a comprehensive message that
    covers all aspects of human endeavor whether personal, social,
    political, economics or international relations. It is called
    ISLAM ( a religion of submission to the Will of the One True
    God – Allah) It is a complete Code of Life, and also a universal
    message which is addressed to all mankind that leads man to
    reconcile himself with God which may entitle him, God’s
    willing, the fruits of Salvation.
    Also, in (1 John 4:6, The Bible) both the terms “the spirit of
    truth” and “the spirit of error” are used for the human beings.
    And, in the older MSS, Codex Syriacus discovered in 1812 on
    Mount Senai by Mrs. Anges S. Lewis and Mrs. Bensley, the
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    78
    text of (John 14:26, The Bible), reads: “Paraclete, the Spirit”
    and not “Paraclete, the Holy Spirit”. The “Spirit” refereed to
    by the older MSS, is a reference to “the Spirit of truth” in
    (John 15:26, The Bible) of today’s Bible.
    Finally, reflect on what Prophet Jesus (Pbuh), said in
    (Matthew 21:42- 43, The Bible): “Therefore I tell you, the
    kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a
    nation producing the fruits of it.”
    Take note, that the warning of Jesus (Pbuh) to the Jews when
    they became apostate by believing and worshipping other
    deities besides Almighty God had its origin in (Genesis 49:10,
    The Bible) by Prophet Jacob (Pbuh) warning about Judah. It
    was in fact the fulfillment of earlier prophecy in (Deut. 32:21,
    The Bible): God says: “They have stirred me to jealousy with
    what is not god; they have provoked me with their idols. So I will
    stir them to jealousy with those who are no people; I will
    provoke them with a foolish nation.”
    The Arabs before Islam were described by the West as foolish
    nation. One writer portrayed them as “brutes with human
    skin”, yet, when Islam was introduced to them, they became
    the model of mankind. Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) removed all
    traces of idolatry and preached the Oneness of God – the
    Creator. He alone is God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of all the
    Worlds Who has no partner, sharer, associate, family, offspring
    or helper. The Arab nation in general and Muhammad (Pbuh)
    in particular were the fulfillment of all the above prophecies.

    WHAT THE QUR’AN IS AND
    WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT JESUS (PBUH)
    AND HIS MOTHER
    The Holy Qur’an, is a comprehensive and universal Message
    revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) through the agency of
    angel Gabriel as the Last and Final Testament of God for
    mankind. It is a Mercy and Guidance from God to human
    beings which is a complete Code of Life, that includes all
    aspects of human endeavour (e.g., code of personal conduct,
    social relations, politics, economics and code of international
    relations). It has withstood the test of time because its
    preservation rests with God Himself. Hence, it is the only
    Book of God extand today which remained pure after more
    than fourteen hundred years. It confirms all previous
    revelations of the earlier prophets. It corrects the errors that
    crept into the previous revelations and abrogated everything
    in them. Allah says:
    Proclaim! (or Read!) In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher,
    Who created –
    Created man, out of a leech-like clot:
    Proclaim! And the Lord is Most Bountiful,-
    He who taught (the use of) the Pen,-
    Taught man that which he knew not.
    Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds,
    In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient.
    Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all). (Iqraa, 96:1- 8, The
    Qur’an)
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    80
    (This is) the revelation of the Book in which there is no
    doubt, – from the Lord of the Worlds. (As-Sajda, 32:2, The
    Qur’an)
    And this a Book which We have sent down, bringing
    blessings, and confirming (the revelations) which came before
    it… (Al-An’am, 6:92, The Qur’an)
    And We sent down the Book to thee so that thou shouldst
    make clear to them those things in which they differ, and that it
    should be a guide and a mercy to those who believe. (An-Nahl,
    16:64, The Qur’an)
    Verily We have revealed the Book to thee in Truth, for
    (instructing) mankind. He, then, that receives guidance benefits
    his own soul: but he that strays injures his own soul. (AzZumar, 39:41, The Qur’an)
    In fact, according to the commentator of the Qur’an, there are
    three express purposes for its revelation to Prophet
    Muhammad (Pbuh):
    (1) that he should bring about unity among the jarring
    sects, for the Gospel of Unity, while preaching the Oneness of
    True God;
    (2) that the revelation should be a guide to right conduct;
    and
    (3) that it should open the path of Repentance and
    Salvation, and thus be of highest mercy to erring sinners. It
    is given order that men and women be righteous. If they
    reject the loss is their own. (48)

    81
    The Role of Jesus (pbuh).
    The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He
    created him from dust, then said to him: “Be”, and he was.
    (Al-‘Imran, 3:59, The Qur’an)
    That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of
    Mary, the Messenger of Allah”, but they killed him not, nor
    crucified him. Only a likeness of that was shown to them. And
    those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain)
    knowledge. But only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they
    killed him not:-
    Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted
    in Power, Wise;-
    And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe
    in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be
    a witness against them.
    (An-Nisaa, 4:157-159, The Qur’an)
    O people of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion:
    nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of
    Mary was (no more than) a Messenger of Allah, and His Word,
    which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him:
    so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not “Three”:
    desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is One God: Glory be to
    Him: (far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all
    things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a
    Disposer of affairs.
    (An-Nisaa, 4:171, The Qur’an)
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    82
    Certainly they disbelieve who say: “Allah is Christ the son of
    Mary.” But said Christ: _ “O Children of Israel! Worship Allah
    my Lord and your Lord.” Whoever joins other gods with Allah, –
    Allah will forbid him the Garden and the Fire will be his abode.
    There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help.
    They disbelieve who say: Allah is one of three (in a Trinity):
    for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their
    word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous chastisement will befall
    the disbelievers among them.
    Why turn they not to Allah and seek His forgiveness? For
    Allah is Oft-forgiving, most Merciful.
    Christ the son of Mary was no more than a Messenger; many
    were the Messengers that passed away before him. His mother
    was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food.
    See how Allah doth make His Signs clear to them; yet see in
    what ways they are deluded away from the truth!
    Say: “Will ye worship, besides Allah something which hath
    no power either to harm or benefit you? But Allah, – He it is that
    heareth and knoweth all things.”
    (Al-Maidah, 5:72-76, The Qur’an)
    And behold! Allah will say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst
    thou say unto men, ‘take me and my mother for two gods besides
    Allah’?” He will say: “Glory to Thee! Never could I say what I
    had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, Thou wouldst
    indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, though
    I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is
    hidden.
    “Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst
    command me to say, to wit, ‘Worship Allah, my Lord and your
    Lord’ “
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    83
    (Al-Maidah, 5:116-117, The Qur’an)
    Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth,
    about which they (vainly) dispute.
    It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should
    beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He determines a matter, He
    only says to it, “Be”, and it is.
    Verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord: Him therefore serve
    ye: this is a Way that is straight.” (Maryam, 19:34-36, The
    Qur’an)
    They say: “The Most Gracious has betaken a son!”
    Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!
    At it the skies are about to burst, the earth to split asunder,
    and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin.
    That they attributed a son to The Most Gracious.
    For it is not consonant with the majesty of The Most
    Gracious that He should beget a son.
    Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must
    come to The Most Gracious as a servant.” (Maryam, 19:88-93,
    The Qur’an)
    “Mary never claimed that she was a mother of God, or that her
    son was God. She was a pious virtuous woman. and Jesus
    disclaims here any knowledge of the sort of things that are
    attributed to him by those who take his name. The worship of
    Mary, though repudiated by the Protestants, was widely spread
    in the earlier churches, both in the East and the West.” (49)
    In addition, the following references in the Bible will also give
    you understanding of the teachings of Jesus (Pbuh): In Gospel
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    84
    of (Matthew 4:10), “where Jesus (Pbuh) rebukes Satan for
    desiring the worship of other than Allah (God).” In (John
    20:1), where he says to Mary Magdalene, “Go to my brethren
    and say to them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father,
    to my God and your God.” In (Luke 18:19), where he rebukes
    a certain ruler for calling him Good Master, “Why do call me
    good? No on is good but Allah alone.” And in (Mark 12:29)
    where he says: “The first is, Here, O Israel: The Lord our God,
    the Lord is one.'”
    A STARNGE STORY
    There is a tale of three Magis who became Christians and
    were devout disciples of priest. He taught them the Christian
    creed, particularly the Trinity. To study the doctrine further,
    they stayed with the priest. After sometime, a friend of the
    priest came to visit him and asked about the conversion of
    three Magis. The priest was so proud to mention the three
    converts about their studies of the Christian dogma. The
    priest called one of the three to show his proficiency about the
    Trinity to his visitor.
    The man happily said: “You taught me that there are three-inone God. One in heaven, the second born of the virgin Mary and
    the third, the Holy Ghost, who descended on the Messiah in the
    form of a dove, when the second god was thirty years old.” Upon
    hearing this, the priest got annoyed and turned him out saying
    that the man was a fool. After that, he called in the second
    man and put the same question to him. The second man
    replied: “You taught me that there were originally three gods, of
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    85
    whom one was crucified and died, two remained behind.” The
    priest was again annoyed, and pushed him out. Then he called
    in the third one who was comparatively more intelligent than
    the former and learnt the creed diligently. The priest asked
    him to propound the dogma of the Trinity. The man replied:
    “What you taught me, through the blessings of Messiah, I
    have learnt it diligently, and that is – one is three and three is
    one. One of whom was crucified and died. Thus by the death of
    one, all the three gods died: because all the three are one and
    united; therefore, the death of one is the death of all the three,
    otherwise, there would be no union of them.” (50)
    This means that due to the crucifixion as claimed by the
    Christians, both God and Jesus Christ (pbuh), have perished
    and become extinct, because according to their belief, Jesus is
    both God and prophet, after whose death the Christians
    possess neither God, nor Prophet or the Holy Ghost. Thus,
    through union, al the three gods died by the death of Christ.
    In short, both the unity and trinity also vanished after the
    disappearance of God, because unity and trinity rest with the
    existence of God. With God disappearance from the scene,
    then naturally his attributes too, should disappear.

    WARNING FOR THOSE WHO PREVENT
    THE MESSAGE OF GOD
    The best book is the Book of Allahh and the best guidance is
    the Guidance of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh).
    Allah has given a grave warning for those who prevented His
    original message to mankind:
    Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands,
    and then say: “This is from Allah,” to traffic with it for a
    miserable price! – Woe to them for what their hands do write,
    and for the gain they make thereby. (Al-Baqarah, 2:79, The
    Qur’an)
    Those who reject Faith, – neither their possessions nor their
    (numerous) progeny will avail them aught against Allah: they
    are themselves but fuel for the Fire.
    (Al-‘Imran, 3:10, The Qur’an)
    The religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His Will).
    (Al-I’mran, 3:19, The Qur’an)
    If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to
    Allah) never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he
    will be in the ranks of those who have lost.
    (Al-‘Imran, 3:85, The Qur’an)
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    87
    O ye who believe!, fear Allah (God) as He should be feared,
    and die not except in a state of Islam (submission to Allah’s
    Will).
    (Al-‘Imran, 3:102, The Qur’an)
    Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers,
    for that they joined partners with Allah, for which He had sent
    no authority: their abode will be the Fire: and evil is the home of
    the wrong-doers!
    (Al-‘Imran, 3:151, The Qur’an)
    O mankind! Fear your Guardian Lord, who created you
    from a single Person, created, out of it, his mate, and from them
    twain scattered (like seeds) countless men and women. (AnNisaa, 4:1, The Qur’an)
    Allah forgiveth not (the sin of) joining other gods with Him;
    but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this: one
    who joins other gods with Allah, hath strayed far, far away
    (from the right).
    (An-Nisaa, 4:116, The Qur’an)
    Say: “Shall I take for my protector other than Allah (God),
    the maker of the heavens and the earth? And He it is that
    feedeth but is not fed?”
    (Al-Al-An’am, 6:14, The Qur’an)
    Who is more unjust than one who forges a lie against Allah or
    rejects His Signs… ?
    (Al-A’raf, 7:37, The Qur’an)
    Is the Trinity Doctrine Divinely Inspired?
    88
    Do they indeed ascribe to Him as partners things that can
    create nothing, but are themselves created?
    No aid can they give them, nor can they aid themselves!
    (Al-A’raf, 7:191-192, The Qur’an)
    Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must
    come to The Most Gracious (Allah) as a servant.
    (Maryam, 19:93, The Qur’an)
    Yet have they taken, besides Him (Allah), gods that can
    cerate nothing but are themselves created; that have no control
    of hurt or good to themselves; nor can they control Death nor
    Life nor Resurrection.
    (Al-Furqan, 25:3, The Qur’an)
    And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against
    Allah or rejects the Truth when it reaches him? Is there not a
    home in Hell for those who reject Faith?
    (Al-‘Ankabut, 29:68, The Qur’an)
    If ye reject (Allah), truly Allah hath no need of you; but He
    liketh not ingratitude from His servants: If you are grateful, He
    is pleased with you. No bearer of burdens can bear of burden of
    another. . .
    (Az-Zumar”, 39:7, The Qur’an)
    “Many are Jinns and men who have made for hell: they have
    hearts wherewith they understand not, and ears wherewith they
    hear not. They are like cattles,- nay more misguided: for they
    are heedless (of warning).”
    (Surah “Al-Araf”, 7:179, The Qur’an)
