Definition of the trinity - There is one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal persons.

Q. Did Jesus teach that eternal life is to know a trinity?
A. John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” According to Jesus, eternal life is based on knowing how many? TWO.

Q. Did Jesus teach that God is a trinity? In other words three persons making up the one God.
A. Mark 12:29 “And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:”

Q. Did Jesus teach that the God of the Jews is a trinity? In other words three persons making up the one God.
A. John 8:54 “Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:” Jesus is telling the Jews that honor God that He is My Father and that I am His Son.

Q. Did Jesus teach that He was part of a trinity?
A. John 10:36 “Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?” And according to Jesus in John 3:16, He is the only begotten Son. In John 14:28 Jesus said, “… My Father is greater than I.” These verses help us to understand how Christ viewed Himself and what He thought about Himself as being the begotten Son of God. The word begotten according to Concordances and Lexiconssimply means to be born. Only begotten means only born of the Father. Jesus said in John 16:27 “For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.” The disciples understood that Jesus was birthed well back in eternity, and was sent into this world by God because He said this to the Father in John 17:8, “For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.”

Q. Did Jesus teach that the Holy Spirit was part of a trinity?
A. The most commonly used verse by Trinitarians, to prove the Holy Spirit is part of a trinity is John 14:16, 17, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” So people will say, there it is. The Father is sending ANOTHER Comforter. They reason that has to be the third God, God the Holy Spirit, someone other than Jesus. But that is a hasty conclusion taken out of context. The problem is that the people tent to read the scriptures with a coloring of what they already believe. So if a person believes a trinity doctrine, they will read verses 16 & 17 and say that establishes their belief. We need to read the context and the last part of verse 17 is a clue, “…he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” Now we need to read verse 18. “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” So according to Christ, the other Comforter is WHO? It is Jesus Himself. As long as Christ was with them, He was a great source of comfort. Now He was going to heaven and His promise is that He will come to them now as a Comforter by His Spirit. He will be in them. The disciples understood what Jesus meant in verse 22, it reads, “Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?” So the disciples were not confused about WHO was coming to them, but HOW He was coming. Jesus answered the question about how He was to manifest Himself in them in verse 23.
John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” The Spirit of Prophecy confirms that Jesus is the Comforter by His omnipresence.

“The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, which is sent to all men to give them sufficiency, that through His grace we might be complete in Him.” (14 MR p. 84)

“There is no Comforter like Christ, so tender and so true.” (RH Nov. 29, 1892)

“The Savior is our Comforter. This I have proven Him to be.” (MR vol. 8 p. 49)

“Christ tells us that the Holy Spirit is the Comforter, and the Comforter is the Holy Ghost, "the Spirit of truth, which the Father shall send in My name." "I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him, for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you" [John 14:16, 17]. This refers to the omnipresence of the Spirit of Christ, called the Comforter. Again Jesus says, "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth is come, He will guide you into all truth" [John 16:12, 13].” {14MR 179.2}

Q. Did others teach that the Holy Spirit was part of a trinity?
A. 2 Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” The Lord here spoken by Paul is Christ and only Christ can bring liberty. Paul was teaching that the Holy Spirit is none other than and he never taught it was part of a trinity.

Q. Did the Father ever declare that His Son was part of a trinity?
A. Matthew 3:17 “” The Father declared this also at the Mount of Transfiguration with the added instruction, “… hear ye Him.”

Q. Does the devil and his angels believe in a trinity?
A. Because the devil was once in heaven, he has seen with his own eyes. James 2:19, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” The devil believes in one God who is the Father. He does not believe in the trinity, however he developed that false doctrine to ensnare as many Christians as possible. In Mark 3:11 it says, “And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.” These unclean spirits were once holy angels in heaven and they knew the Son of God well.

Q. Is our fellowship with a trinity?
A. 1 John 1:3 “That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” So besides church brethren, our fellowship is with the Father and His Son, two Divine Beings. As we read earlier, the Father and Son come and make their abode in us by their Omnipresent Spirit.

Q. Are we baptized into a trinity?
A. Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” Those who believe in the trinity say this proves their position and that Jesus said we need to be baptized into all three. Although a Roman Catholic historian, Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger, stated that this verse was changed in the 2nd century by the church. It is believed we are to be baptized into Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is the Omnipresent Spirit of the Father and Christ, not a third being. Acts 2:38 says, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” So people are to be baptized into the name of Jesus Christ and then they are to receive the Holy Spirit which is the omnipresence of the Father and the Son, not a trinity which does not harmonize with Christ’s teachings.

Q. Does the gift of the Holy Spirit come from a trinity?
A. Galatians 4:6 “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” That is the gift of the Spirit that we receive, it is the Spirit of the Son, the Spirit of Christ. The word spirit is synonymous with life. When Adam was created God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, which was the spirit. Jesus said in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” When we are receiving the Spirit of the Son, we are receiving the life of the Son, and the life of the Son is not another person or being. It is His very own person which is how we are connected to heaven. It is what Jesus called “another Comforter,” that Jesus promised when He said “I will not leave you comfortless. I will come to you.”

Q. Is the confession of faith about a trinity?
A. God declared: This is my beloved Son. Matthew 3:17.
Satan stated: If thou be the Son of God. Matthew 4:3.
Caiaphas asked: “… tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.” Matthew 26:63. “He hath spoken blasphemy;” Matthew 26:65
The Eunuch declared: “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” Acts 8:37.
The mockers at the cross said: If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.” Matthew 27:40.
Paul after he was converted: “…he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.” Acts 9:20.
Paul as Saul: “Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, …” 1 Timothy 1:13. What was Paul’s blasphemy before conversion? It pertained to what he believed about the Son of God. He denied that Christ was the Son of God, just like Satan, Caiaphas and the mockers. As a matter of fact, he confessed that he would chase people, arrest them and cause them to blaspheme, so as to deny the Son.
The Centurion declared: “Truly this man was the Son of God.”
Antichrist: 1 John 2:22 “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” It is antichrist to deny that the Father is who Jesus says He is, for Jesus said He is the one true God. It is also antichrist to deny that Jesus is the literally begotten Son of God. Those who teach the trinity or three separate and distinct co-eternal Gods fit the description of antichrist.

1 John 4:15 “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” Trinitarians and Tri-theists that they teach and believe that. But the Trinitarians believe that God is made up of three in one, while the tri-theists believe in three separate and distinct beings that are co-equal and co-eternal. Therefore they do not believe in Jesus being begotten in eternity. That also means that if they are co-eternal, then there can be no true Father-Son relationship. It would be metaphorical and the three Gods would be role playing. And so is the vain philosophy given more credence than the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy.

Now we need to look at the Spirit of Prophecy because scripture says the Spirit of Prophecy is the Testimony of Jesus. Trinitarians and tri-theists will pick certain quotations and say they prove a trinity. If that were true, how can Jesus contradict himself? Who inspired the writings of the servan of the Lord? The Holy Spirit did. And who have we learned is the Holy Spirit? It is the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ, speaking through His servants the prophets.

We studied earlier that the trinity is described as: “There is one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons.” Is there evidence in the Spirit of Prophecy to support this?

Those who argue in favor of the trinity or 3 separate and distinct Gods have a few quotes they camp on and say they prove what they believe. We need to look closely at what Spirit of Prophecy says. We will use the same line of questioning.

Q. Is God the Father, the unchangeable One, part of a trinity.
A. DA 21.2, “in the heavenly courts, in His ministry for all created beings: through the beloved Son, the Father's life flows out to all; through the Son it returns, in praise and joyous service, a tide of love, to the great Source of all. And thus through Christ the circuit of beneficence is complete, representing the character of the great Giver, the law of life.” {DA 21.2} According to this statement the Father is the one and only source of al that there is. And notice that it said the Father's life flows out to all.

In 5T 699.1 it reads. “We can understand as much of His purposes as it is for our good to know; and beyond this we must still trust the might of the Omnipotent, the love and wisdom of the Father and Sovereign of all.” {5T 699.1} So according to this statement, how many sovereigns of all? 1 or 3? The Father alone is sovereign of all. The purpose of this study is not to offend, rather to examine the lesser studied evidence so that we can determine if we are on safe ground.

Q. Was Christ, the begotten Son, part of a trinity?
A. DA 21.2, “All things Christ received from God, but He took to give.” {DA 21.2} So who did Christ receive all things from? From God the Father. Does that include life as well? Did Christ receive life from the Father? Yes. What kind of life did He receive from the Father? We find it in DA 530.1. It says, “In Christ is life, original, unborrowed, underived …” {DA 530.3} Since the Father is the source of all, He put His original, unborrowed, and underived life into His begotten Son. Trinitarians however attempt to use this statement to justify their belief.

Let us now look at this statement, same question, from 8T 268.3, “God is the Father of Christ; Christ is the Son of God. To Christ has been given an exalted position. He has been made equal with the Father. All the counsels of God are opened to His Son.” {8T 268.3} No Trinitarian believes this statement. Christ was made equal with the Father because He inherited that. He received that from the great source of all, the Sovereign of all.
Let us now look at this statement, same question, from GC 493.1, “Christ the Word, the Only Begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father,--one in nature, in character, and in purpose,--the only being in all the universe that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God.” {GC 493.1} Think on this statement. There is NO other being in the universe, but Christ, that can enter into all the counsels and purposes of God. No third god being exists that can enter into all the counsels and purposes of God. Trin0tarians say there is someone else but the SOP says there is no one else.

Q. Did a trinity have foreknowledge about the apostasy of Lucifer?
A. DA 22.2, “From the beginning, God and Christ knew of the apostasy of Satan, and of the fall of man through the deceptive power of the apostate.” {DA 22.2}

Q. Did a trinity unite in the covenant of salvation?
A. DA 834.2, “Before the foundations of the earth were laid, the Father and the Son had united in a covenant to redeem man if he should be overcome by Satan. They had clasped Their hands in a solemn pledge that Christ should become the surety for the human race.” {DA 834.2} Who decided that? The Father and Christ alone united in the covenant of salvation, not a trinity.

Q. Before his fall, did Lucifer believe in a trinity?
A. SR 15, “Lucifer in heaven, before his rebellion, was a high and exalted angel, next in honor to God's dear Son.” {SR 13.1} Lucifer was a high and exalted angel next in line to Christ. Take note of the fact that God had a Son long before Bethlehem, long before the earth was created, and long before Lucifer rebelled in heaven. In the book Story of Redemption, knowing that there would come a time when Christ, the begotten Son of God in eternity would be challenged, He inspired the servant of the Lord to mention Christ as God’s Son no fewer than ten times in the first two paragraphs. All before Lucifer rebelled.
And this quote from ST July 1901, Par. 6, “Before his fall he was a glorious being, occupying a position next to Christ in the heavenly courts.” {ST, July 10, 1901 par. 6} There was God, next Christ and who was next in line? Lucifer was the third highest being.
We were told previously the counsels were between the Father and the Son and no one else was included in these meetings. No third being. Lucifer could not for he was a created being, and he had a problem with that. So Lucifer did not believe in a trinity before his fall.
Here is another quote regarding the same question, GC88 495.1, “In all the counsels of God, Christ was a participant, while Lucifer was not permitted thus to enter into the divine purposes. “Why,” questioned this mighty angel, “should Christ have the supremacy? Why is he thus honored above Lucifer?” {GC88 495.1} So it was Lucifer who wanted to have the divine counsels to have how many members? Three. But there was only the Father and the Son. Satan wants the whole Christian world to believe that there are three that make up the one God.. He failed in heaven but he wants that to be a doctrine in Christian minds today..

Q. Did Lucifer worship a trinity in heaven?
A. “The hour for joyful, happy songs of praise to God and his dear Son had come. Satan had led the heavenly choir. He had raised the first note, then all the angelic host united with him, and glorious strains of music had resounded through Heaven in honor of God and his dear Son.” {1SP 28.2} It is clear that Lucifer led the choir in worship of God and His Son, not a trinity.
Here is another quote, same question, from PP36.3 “The influence of the holy angels seemed for a time to carry him with them. As songs of praise ascended in melodious strains, swelled by thousands of glad voices, the spirit of evil seemed vanquished; unutterable love thrilled his entire being; his soul went out, in harmony with the sinless worshippers, in love to the Father and the Son.” {PP 36.3}” These and many quotes like them are an abundance of evidence that there was no trinity in heaven.

Q. Did the good angels believe in a trinity?
A. GC88 493.1 “By Christ, the Father wrought in the creation of all heavenly beings. “By him were all things created, that are in Heaven , . . . whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers;” [Colossians 1:16.] and to Christ, equally with the Father, all Heaven gave allegiance.” {GC88 493.1} So all heaven gave allegiance to who? A trinity? No. To Christ and the Father. This is how sinless, holy beings worship in heaven and our worship on earth needs to match the worship in heaven. We even pray, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. And God’s will is that we worship in spirit and in truth.
Another quote, same question. PP 36.2 “The Son of God had wrought the Father's will in the creation of all the hosts of heaven; and to Him, as well as to God, their homage and allegiance were due.“ {PP 36.2}

Q. Did Lucifer in heaven, war against a trinity?
A. “Satan, the first apostate, looked upon the fruit of his apostasy in the vast army under his banner, and his mind was made to comprehend the meaning of warfare against God and his Son.” GCB, October 1, 1890 Par. 25. He was making war against who? God and His Son. Satan as Lucifer was the third highest being. There was no such third God to make war with.
Another quote, same question, “Once Satan was in co-partnership with God, Jesus Christ, and the holy angels. He was highly exalted in heaven, and was radiant in light and glory that came to him from the Father and the Son; but he became disloyal, and lost his high and holy position as covering cherub. He became the antagonist of God, an apostate, and was excluded from heaven.” {RH, April 14, 1896 par. 4}
Another quote, same question, “Memory recalls the home of his innocence and purity, the peace and content that were his until he indulged in murmuring against God, and envy of Christ.” {GC 669.2} Satan warred against the government of God because of his hatred of Christ.

Q. Did the fallen angels believe in a trinity?
A. SR 16 “Many of Lucifer's sympathizers were inclined to heed the counsel of the loyal angels and repent of their dissatisfaction and be again received to the confidence of the Father and His dear Son.” No, they did not worship a trinity and the rebellion was not against a trinity. It was against God and His Son. . At one point Lucifer had half of the angels swayed, but because of the efforts of the loyal angels, many did repent and return, so that reduced the number of the disloyal to a third.
Another quote, same question, TDG 128 “This fact the [fallen] angels would obscure, that Christ was the only begotten Son of God, and they came to consider that they were not to consult Christ.” {TDG 128.2} Isn’t that interesting that the fallen angels would obscure the fact that Christ was begotten of the Father. They have done a wonderful job in obscuring that fact from many Adventist today who believe Christ was not begotten until Bethlehem. Some people who take issue with those that believe Christ was begotten in eternity, will say that this group believes Christ was created. That is a false charge. The facts are that the angels were created and Christ was begotten (birthed) of the Father. Satan would love that people thought Christ was created because that would equate him with Satan.
Another quote, same question, 21MR 419.1, “Never, never can we afford to place confidence in human greatness as some have done, looking to man as the angels in heaven looked to the rebellious Lucifer, and losing the sense of the presence of Christ and God.” {21MR 419.1} So Lucifer, the fallen angels and the good angels did not believe in a trinity. They know who God and Jesus are.

Q. Did the fallen angels turn against a trinity?
A. 3T 114.2 “Satan in his rebellion took a third part of the angels. They turned from the Father and from His Son, and united with the instigator of rebellion.” {3T 114.2}

Q. Did a trinity expel Lucifer from heaven?
A. 3SP 80.1 “In the act of Christ dying for the salvation of man, Heaven was not only made accessible to man, but God and his Son were justified before all Heaven in dealing with the rebellion of Satan, and in his expulsion.” {3SP 80.1}

Q. Was a trinity involved in the work of creation?
A. 1SP 24.1 “The Father and the Son engaged in the mighty, wondrous work they had contemplated, of creating the world.” {1SP 24.1} Creation is attributed to the Father and the Son.
Another quote, same question, “The Father consulted Jesus in regard to at once carrying out their purpose to make man to inhabit the earth.” {ST January 9, 1879} The Father spoke to the Son and it is recorded in scripture, “Let us make man in our image, after out likeness.” When they created man, how many did they create? Two. You can’t have an original of three and have a likeness of two. Adam and Eve were created in the image of the Father and the Son.
Another quote, same question, “After the earth was created, and the beasts upon it, the Father and Son carried out their purpose, which was designed before the fall of Satan, to make man in their own image. They had wrought together in the creation of the earth and every living thing upon it.” {1SP 24.2}

Q. Did a trinity rest on the Sabbath?
A. DA 769 “In the beginning the Father and the Son had rested upon the Sabbath after Their work of creation.” {DA 769.2} The Sabbath points to the Father and the Son, not a trinity.

Q. Did Adam and Eve praise and worship a trinity?
A. SR22 “The holy pair united with them and raised their voices in harmonious songs of love, praise, and adoration to the Father and His dear Son for the tokens of love which surrounded them.” {SR 22.3} Just like the angels, they worshipped the Father and the Son, and that’s who we should worship, not a trinity.

Another quote, same question, “The angels united with them in holy strains of harmonious music; and as their songs pealed forth from blissful Eden, Satan heard their joyful adoration of the Father and the Son.” {ST, January 16, 1879 par. 22}

Q. Did Satan attempt to defy the authority of a trinity?
A. PP 331.2 “Now the way seemed open for Satan to establish an independent kingdom, and to defy the authority of God and His Son.” {PP 331.2} Satan defies the authority of the Father and His Son by creating confusion. He inserts Himself into worship because any worship outside of the Father and the Son is claimed by the being that wanted to be worshipped. The Scriptures teach that our worship is to the Father and the Son. John 5:23 “That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.” 2 John 1:9 He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 1 John 1:3 “That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” Since his rebellion, the whole issue of the controversy has been between Satan and the Father and His Son, not a trinity.
Another quote, same question, “Satan cast off his feelings of despair and weakness, and, as their leader, fortified himself to brave out the matter, and do all in his power to defy the authority of God and his Son.” {1SP 32.2}

Q. Was a trinity dishonored when mankind fell?
A. “But in the transgression of man both the Father and the Son were dishonored.” {ST, December 12, 1895 par. 7} Both means two were dishonored, not a trinity.

Q. Is Satan now warring against a trinity?
A. “Every lying device is put into operation to misrepresent the Father and to dispute the authority of his only-begotten Son. Satan casts a hellish shadow before the world to hide God and the world's Redeemer from sight, so that if they were viewed at all, it might be through the mists and fogs of superstition, tradition, and error, and not in truth. {ST, March 28, 1895 par. 6} To a great degree Satan has been successful in misrepresenting the Father and the authority of the Son and the fact that Jesus was begotten in eternity. Adventist get upset when you suggest that fact. And today they teach and believe that there is someone between the Father and the Son, called God the Holy Spirit, that brings you to Them. They cannot perceive the gross darkness of the deception that Satan has them in. There is no denying that there is a Holy Spirit, the difference is the correct Biblical understanding of the Holy Spirit. It is the omnipresence of the Father’ Spirit and the Spirit of Christ, called the third person of the Godhead. It is not a third being.

Another quote, same question, “He who could influence the angels of God against their Supreme Ruler, and against His Son, their loved Commander, and enlist their sympathy for himself, was capable of any deception. Four thousand years he had been warring against the government of God and had lost none of his skill or power to tempt and deceive. {Con 45.1} The trinity doctrine is Satanic and is one of his greatest deceptions because he has entrapped most Adventists who keep the 4th commandment but are breaking the 1st commandment. Whether it is trinity or tri-theism, it virtually destroys the personality of God and Christ.

Another quote, same question, “Again and again we shall be called to meet the influence of men who are studying sciences of satanic origin, through which Satan is working to make a nonentity of God and of Christ. {9T 68.1}

Q. Do God’s people praise and worship a trinity?
A. “All the heavenly angels are at the service of the humble, believing people of God; and as the Lord's army of workers here below sing their songs of praise, the choir above join withthem in thanksgiving, ascribing praise to God and to His Son.” {7T 17.2} If you worship a trinity, do you believe angels will sing with you?

Q. Is knowing a trinity the sum and substance of the whole gospel?
A. “The sum and substance of the whole matter of Christian grace and experience is comprised in believing on Christ,--in knowing God, and his Son, whom he hath sent. But here is where many fail; for they lack faith in God.” {BEcho, April15, 1892} The sum and substance of the whole gospel is in knowing God, and his Son, not a trinity.

Q. Who is the God of the Bible, is it the trinity?
A. “We rejoiced that the God of creation is the God of the Bible, and that we can claim this infinite Being as our Father. We talked of the glories of his power and wisdom, and adored the matchless love which has made it possible, through Jesus Christ, for fallen man to become a son and heir of the Maker and Sovereign of the universe. {RH, November 1, 1881 par. 4} The God of the Bible is one person, not 2 or 3. One! He is the one we call our Father.

Q. Does a trinity love man?
A. “God and Jesus, His beloved Son, must be presented before the people in the wealth of the love they have evidenced for man. {17MR 74.1} The Father and Son love mankind, not a trinity.

Q. Did a trinity pay an infinite price to redeem man?
A. “The human family cost God and his Son Jesus Christ an infinite price. {SpTEd 21.1}

Q. Whose honor is involved in our character perfection? Is it a trinity?
A. “The very image of God is to be reproduced in humanity. The honor of God, the honor of Christ, is involved in the perfection of the character of His people. {DA 671.3}

Q. Will the plan of salvation justify a trinity?
A. “The act of Christ in dying for the salvation of man would not only make heaven accessible to men, but before all the universe it would justify God and His Son in their dealing with the rebellion of Satan. {PP 68.2}

Q. Down to the very end, does Satan want to dethrone a trinity?
A. “He [Satan] points to the powerful race who lived before the flood, and to kings and warriors who were well skilled in battle, and flatters his subjects that their numbers are much greater than those in the city, that they can make war with them, and dethrone God and his Son Jesus Christ, and take the throne and occupy the city, and enjoy its richness and glory.” {3SG 85.1} From the beginning of the rebellion in heaven, down to the end of the millennium when Satan attempts war on the city, it has been a controversy against the Father and His begotten Son. Not a trinity.

Q. Will we worship a trinity every Sabbath in heaven?
A. “There they will assemble in the sanctuary from Sabbath to Sabbath, from one new moon to another, to unite in loftiest strains of song, in praise and thanksgiving to Him who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb for ever and ever. {6T 368} Throughout eternity we will worship the Father and the Lamb Jesus, not a trinity. Trinitarians wonder why there is no mention of a throne for the Holy Spirit. No throne is necessary for the Omnipresence Spirit of the Father and the Son.

Q. Will we praise a trinity in heaven?
A. “In your hands will be placed a golden harp, and touching its strings, you will join with the redeemed host in filling all heaven with songs of praise to God and His Son. {AUCR, January 15, 1903 par. 14}

Q. Will a trinity declare that sin is finished?
A. “The years will move on in gladness. Over the scene the morning stars will sing together, and the sons of God will shout for joy, while God and Christ will unite in proclaiming, "There shall be no more sin, neither shall there be any more death." {CG 568.1}

With so much overwhelming evidence in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy, why do people insist on worshipping a trinity or three separate and distinct Gods? It makes no sense at all. Our worship is to the Father and the Son through Their shred omnipresent Holy Spirit.
