Now we can go back and forth, I, by presenting biblical and historical proof along with quotes from the ancients can dispel the false doctrine of the Trinity. You, can also share verses from the bible and relate information stemming from so called, “church fathers” that’ll attempt to give credence to such a doctrine. We, will come to disagreements over interpretations of biblical texts and offer no honor to the “wise ones” that went before us and wind up achieving no distance on the path to Truth. Our mutual disagreements will cancel each other out. We will have achieved nothing.
My intent in this writing is not to present historical data to dispel the trinity doctrine. Nor will I use biblical texts to try and win over my opposition. I have plenty of videos and teachings on that. I will come at this from a different angle in hope to bring a practical understanding through allegory, to those who hold to the doctrine of the Trinity.
From an early age we are taught to obey our parents. I don’t know of any children that are not given commands by their guardians. They are told to sit, eat, stop, go, follow etc. As we age we can either take what was taught to us and work in harmony with society (since the societal norms are in flow with enforcement of proper social conduct and obeying the law) or we can refuse instruction and be out of place. When out of place, there tends to initially be a sense of devalue, low worth and a resentment towards the “authorities” or the ones who give commands. Now the wise one who strays will understand his waywardness and return to the structure of norms. He will see his departure as an act of disobedience or risky curiosity that led him astray. He will understand that he misaligned himself with the “structure of things” and then will make amends and return. He will have “saved” himself.
The other one, in his foolishness, will remain poised to wander. He will forsake the way that initially guided him. He sees no wrong in carving out a new path. A path untrodden. It’s a path that sparks curiosity, it’s tempting, is unique. It goes against what he was taught and he knows this. But along this wayward path he notices several others. They too have strayed from the original path, the structured path that they were raised in. He finds solidarity with the wanderers on the wayward path. They develop a Name, a Name not given to them by their guardians. A Name whose meaning is detestable to the Ancients.
But in this Name they persist, they fight, they war, they kill! They shout the Name in defiance from the wayward path towards the Ancient city. Before them stands a multitude of brazen wanderers that have forsaken their land and have decried the Structure of Things. Their influence is contagious. For all that come a wandering will be feeble followers, unlearned, misguided, and curious. Easy prey for the hardened rebels.
From time to time a voice cries out from the Ancient land,
“Return to the Structure of Things, forsake the name you have taken in your rebellion. Return, Return to the Ancient Path!”
He cries out, but those on the wandering path continue on their way as deaf, others interpret the cry as a call for war! A strike to fight! The wanderers are so hardened in their rebellion that they cannot properly recognize empathy from their apathy. They have become complacent in their wanderings and in taking up of the New Name. There is a mystical attachment to the Name. They do not understand the cries of the concerned. They do not understand the cries of those wanting them to return to the right path. The wanderers have established their New Name. They have developed a cunning craft to manipulate the wayward path to make one think it’s the Ancient path! This is how they maintain their populous.
All hope would seem to be lost since the wanderers are stalwart in their New Name. But every now and then, as one of the wanderers begins to reminisce, he recalls the voice of the Ancients crying out. He bows his head and opens his eyes. He remembers the resounding voice of the one who passionately cried out in desperation, “Return, Return to the Ancient path, forsake the New Name and return to the Ancient Name!” He is encouraged! He then begins to retrace his steps, moving along, studying the terrain, he is serious, he no longer feels the compulsion to go with the flow. He is now serious about his quest to return. His longing and love for the Truth and a return to Home is what compels him. He continues, he is not stagnant. He is not persuaded to stay by the wanderers. They try to get him to stay by fascinating him with mysterious ulterior paths that lead back to the wandering path. But he has developed a strong desire to return to the Ancient path and he can’t be stopped. He bypasses the artificial “structure of things” made by the hands of the wanderers. At last, he begins to see it so CLEARLY, the Path. He sees the Ancient Path that he wandered from, the Path that the wanderers forsook. He is now home, back to the “Structure of Things.”
Once at home he ponders why he stood so long with the wanderers. He wonders why he was easily swayed to go down the wayward path. He recollects and discovers that he never studied the paths for himself. The Ancient Path was simple, clear and easy to understand. The wayward path was complex, mysterious and no one on the wandering path could explain it! It was his lack of study, personal attentiveness, curiosity and rebellion that led him to the wayward path. Thankfully, for his eternal sake, he didn’t remain on the wayward path but found his way home.
