The Trinity Darkens the Scriptures

The doctrine of the trinity blocks the light of Christ from the Scriptures.  After all, the Scriptures are about Christ (Luke 24:25-27, 44-48; John 5:39; 12:41; 2 Timothy 3:14-15).  Nevertheless, the Trinity blocks this light from view.

For example, in Acts 2:34-36 Peter declares that Jesus, having been seated at the right hand of God, has been made Lord according to the fulfillment of Psalm 110:1.  This began the glories of Christ, His sufferings having been concluded with His crucifixion and death (1 Peter 1:10-11).  Thus passages like Psalm 111, though originally written to merely extol the God of Israel, are now shown to also extol the Messiah.  Thus we should study the works of Christ (verse 2) and do His commandments (verse 10).

The doctrine of the trinity, however, would keep this psalm as referring only to the God of creation, or perhaps “the triune God” in some vague fashion.  The Psalms are all about Christ, even though that might not always have been seen when they were originally written (1 Peter 1:12).  Here are a few obvious examples from the Psalms: 24:1; 47:2; 57:5; 68:1; 73:25; 107:20; 108:5; 113:4; 115:1-3; 148:13.  As originally read, the Creator God only was in view.  As read in the light of Christ’s resurrection, however, the Redeemer God (i.e. the Messiah) is also in view.  They are the same God.  The Creator God became the Redeemer God (God the Father Was the Seed from Which Christ the Lord Sprang Forth as the Tree).

Jesus’ resurrection gave light to the Scriptures beyond any they’d previously had (Acts 26:23; 2 Peter 1:19).  Don’t let the trinity doctrine cover it up.  Look to Christ (The Bible Is the Book of Jesus).  He is the light of the world (John 8:12).
