The word "antichrist" appears 4 time in the Holy Bible in four separate verses.

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus<2424> is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus<2424> Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus<2424> Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

In each of these verses the word translated as Jesus comes from reference 2424. Since words do mean things so let us look at the definition of the word. If we are to understand a Bible verse then we need to know the meaning of the words used in that verse, eh?

2424 Iesous {ee-ay-sooce’}

of Hebrew origin 03091; TDNT - 3:284,360; n pr m

AV - Jesus 972, Jesus (Joshua) 2, Jesus (Justus) 1; 975

Jesus = "Jehovah is salvation"
 

Notice also the Hebrew of 03091

03091 Y@howshuwa‘ {yeh-ho-shoo’-ah} or Y@howshu‘a {yeh-ho-shoo’-ah}

from 03068 and 03467;

AV - Joshua 218; 218

Joshua or Jehoshua = "Jehovah is salvation" n pr m

Then notice the Hebrew for 03068 referred to above:

03068 Y@hovah {yeh-ho-vaw’}

from 01961; TWOT - 484a; n pr dei

AV - LORD 6510, GOD 4, JEHOVAH 4, variant 1; 6519

Jehovah = "the existing One"

1) the proper name of the one true God

1a) unpronounced except with the vowel pointings of 0136

The trinity does not teach that "Jehovah Savior" came in the flesh, but rather teaches that a "second person", or "junior deity" came in the flesh. Does the trinity teach that Jehovah Himself died on the cross for your sins or do they teach a "junior person", a second person in a man made god squad?

Many are taught John 3:16 but what about 1 John 3:16

1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

That does not say that a junior god person died on the cross now does it? It says that God laid down His life. Now a lot of people say that God cannot die and in the sense they are saying that they are correct that God cannot cease to exist.

However, God is the inventor of life and death so God is able to die and then raise Himself from the dead. You think that is a stretch consider the following verses.

John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

God is also the inventor of time as well as life and death. Life and death are tools in his hands.

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

But anyway back to our topic of why trinitarianism is not merely stupid and foolish, it is actually antichrist!

There is also another group of verses that warn particularly against polytheistic theories, and further declare them capable of "spoiling".

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Let us review our original verses and simply substitute Jehovah for Jesus since we know that is the actual definition of the word "Jesus".

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus<2424> is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus<2424> Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus<2424> Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

That's right friend. Trinitarianism is not merely stupid foolish and deceitful, it really is ANTICHRIST!

Consider also this verse regarding the human tendency that man has to "make up" his own "gods" (If people didn't get a measure of peace and satisfaction they wouldn't have been worshipping creations of their own minds for centuries).

Jeremiah 5:7 How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by [them that are] no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses.

Jeremiah 16:20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they [are] no gods?

Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

According to the trinity there would had to have been 5 pair of feet walking in the garden in this verse. 1 pair for Adam, 1 pair for Eve and three pair for the trinity that they were hiding from. Of course the more scholarly of the trinitarians might suggest that there were only 4 pair of feet actually walking because god person #2 was riding on the right hand of god person #1 and I suppose they could have their

god person #3 flying around. To a lot of them their concept of "god" is senior, junior and birdie as it were.

Also let us consider the trinitarian attempt to preach plural gods from Gen 1:26:

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Too bad they didn't read just one more verse, eh?

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Shouldn't verse 27 read "created they them"? And if the "trinity" of three created Adam in "their image", where are the other two Adam persons? We need two other "persons" here. I mean, if one "person" can sit on the other "person"'s right hand then where were Adam's two "co-equal" persons. Then we would need a trinity of wives.

Was Adam, created in God's image, three separate persons one of which was sitting on the hand of the other? But don't forget our theme, trinitarianism is not merely stupid and foolish but it is very evil and harmful.

We have many trinitarians who claim to be "one god", Biblically Christian, and monotheistic. How can this be?

2 Corinthians 11:12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Is not the devil the father of lies? We should not be surprised when his false-christian ministers will lie too, eh?

In the above verses Paul says that it is Biblical to try to cut off occasion from the Satanic ministers who will be pretending to be ministers of righteousness.

Revelation 17:1 ¶ And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Which church is the mother of the harlot trinity denominations? Is it not the RCC herself.
