PlanksandNails' goal is to write articles that pique discussion and look at things from a different perspective.
The Trinity doctrine is the pillar of all Christendom, but many do not know the origins of their beliefs. To get a clearer understanding, we must go back through history and look into Scripture to see the trail of this doctrine that has manifested into the largest religion in the world today.
Looking to the Past to Define the Future
There is a parallel pertaining to the man-driven church system today and what she represents. We can get a clearer picture by going back to her origins that are recorded in Scripture.
The events that transpired and the gods that were birthed in ancient Babylon have great spiritual influence and significance today.
In the Old Testament, the heathen king Nebuchadnezzar of ancient Babylon had authority over government and religion. He made a great golden idol and commanded all the people of different languages and nations to bow down before an image as a token of their allegiance. All those who refused would face the consequences.
And the herald proclaimed aloud, “You are commanded, O PEOPLES, NATIONS, AND LANGUAGES, that when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, YOU ARE TO FALL DOWN AND WORSHIP THE GOLDEN IMAGE that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. And whoever does not fall down and worship shall immediately be CAST INTO A BURNING FIERY FURNACE.” – Daniel 3:4-6
The issue at this point in time in ancient Babylon was about who or what you worshiped. Both the religious and the political came together mandating worship to an idol.
However, there was a small minority who refused to worship the pagan image because they understood who the true God of Heaven (the Father) was. They refused to worship the idol that symbolized loyalty and allegiance to the ancient Kingdom of Babylon.
As we move through history to today, there are similar parallels from the past as many continue to worship an idolatrous image. The representatives of this religion have given great authority throughout history to today.
We can see the clear similarities between the past and future events pertaining to worship practices that are enforced on the peoples and the nations, especially the Catholic Church
The term Babylon referenced in the Old Testament can be applied in the same way to to the man-driven institutional church system and the worship of the Trinity. The parallels of worshipping the image equates to idolatry. Today, the great deception is that they are worshipping a man as God.
I will not execute the kindling of My anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim, for I am God and not a man. In your midst is the Holy One, and I will not enter a city. - Hosea 11:9
God is not a man that He should lie, nor is He a mortal that He should relent. Would He say and not do, speak and not fulfill? - Numbers 23:19
Many are deceived and will try enforce the religious dogma on other by coercing with fear of going to hell for not believing what they do.
The Power of Spiritual Babylon
Just as the ancient city of Babylon had great power over the people, the Catholic religion and all her daughters have great power over the masses.
This religious system with their Trinity doctrine defies the worship of the one true God.
The corrupt church system that is manifest today worships the god of the Roman Catholic Church.

You are probably thinking that you have heard all this before. Many of the Protestant Church fathers claimed that that office of the papacy was false. Although Protestants reject some of the doctrines of the Catholic Church, they are not removed completely from them. They still belong to a religious system born of her. They embrace and worship the same Trinity god of their Mother. The fact is that a Protestant is a rebellious Catholic who decides what doctrines and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church to keep or disregard. They are protesters (Protest- ant). Every church denomination today embraces some of the same doctrines and traditions that they have inherited from their Mother.
What Protestants and the thousands of other church denominations have inherited from the Mother is the worship of their god they call a 'Trinity.'
The Trinity is a mystery of faith in the strict sense, one of the "mysteries that are hidden in God, which can never be known unless they are revealed by God". - Catechism of the Catholic Church
The Trinity is an incomprehensible mystery.The mystery of the Trinity is the central doctrine of the Catholic faith. Upon it are based all the other teachings of the Church system.
The doctrine of the Trinity creates confusion because it cannot be reconciled in the mind. Everyone has their own version of trying to explain it, but it always proves to be illogical.
If we go all the way back to ancient Babylon, there are a few things that can be further discovered. From ancient sources such as the 'Epic of Gilgamesh' and archaeological finds from ancient Mesopotamian and Egyptian cities, the events of ancient Babylon with Scriptural references reveal an ancient system of worship shrouded in symbols and imagery.
In the book of Genesis (10:8-12, 11:1-9) there was a man named Nimrod who was a man of great power. He and his wife Semiramis decided to build a great tower in rebellion against God with the purpose of perpetuating a secret mysterious form of worship. The reason for their secrecy was that there were still many who still worshiped the one true God of Noah.
As the roots of this pagan religion started to take hold across the lands, it came to the point of becoming a one world religion. This brought anger to God so He confused their language. This led to the destruction of the tower and dispersion of the people throughout the world into many language groups.
This mystery system of worship carried on through Nimrod’s life. After he died, his wife made him into a deity. She claimed that upon her husband's death, he ascended into the sun making him a symbol of sun worship. Samiramis would later become pregnant and claim that she conceived with the seed (ray of sun) of Nimrod. When she bore a son, she named him Tammuz claiming he was the reincarnation of Nimrod as God in human form. Eventually, Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis would claim deity and be known and worshipped as the three persons of the one sun god.
This Trinity doctrine would have its origins within ancient Babylon with God the Father (Nimrod) and God the Son (Tammuz) as well as worship of Semiramis (Queen of Heaven). They would become the Trinity.
After God confounded the language of the people in Babylon, the many different groups spread throughout the earth taking with them the same system of worship that originated from ancient Babylon. The same concepts and principles of the three in one god has left a footprint in the many different cultures throughout history. Since the languages changed with each people group, so did the names of the persons in the three in one god.
Here are a few examples of the different names within their triune entity:
- Babylon: Nimrod, Tammuz and Samiramis
- Egypt: Osiris, Horus and Isis
- Greece: Zeus, Apollo and Athena
- India: Brama, Vishnu and Shiva
- Rome: Jupiter, Mars and Venus
- Christianity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit
The common denominator of the Trinity is that it originated from ancient Babylon. The sun became a fitting symbol for Satan because it was the supreme symbol for life. The three stages of the sun (rising, mid-day and setting) fit well because they were already worshiping three different persons. The three phases of the sun into one would become the universal meaning of deity. The three interlocking circles would look like an equilateral triangle
The symbols of the Trinity that hid open worship to Satan would be incorporated into their art work as ancient archaeological finds attest to.
The Hidden Meaning Behind the Trinity
The roots, origins and footprint of the Trinity doctrine can clearly be seen throughout history.
The mystery that is hidden beneath the surface of the Trinity is 666. This symbol is without a doubt found among many pagan images and artifacts.
Then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you and destroy all their figured stones and destroy all their metal IMAGES and demolish all their high places. – Numbers 33:52
In the Torah, God clearly detested the symbolic imagery of the sun gods the pagans worshiped. Today, we can find this same imagery that Christendom worships. God is not pleased that many are deceived into worshiping the Trinity because it is idolatry. He also is not pleased that Christians partake of the birth of Tammuz (God the Son) whom they call 'Jesus' during Christmas and his ascension to Nimrod (Baal) during the celebration of Easter as part of their worship to their Trinitarian sun god.
This is the same god of the Roman Catholic Church and all her harlots. The Trinity of ancient Babylon is the same Trinity today. Those who accept this sun god are in bondage to dogma of the man-driven church system steeped in man-made traditions that go all the way back to ancient Babylon. Today, the manifestation of the god they worship attests to the holidays they celebrate.
666 is the sign of their allegiance to their triune god they worship.
The Golden Calf
The worship of Satan has been passed down through the generations in every culture. The Trinity is the golden calf of the Catholic Church and modern Christianity.
And he received the gold from their hand and fashioned it with a graving tool and made a golden calf. And they said, “THESE ARE YOUR GODS, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!” - Exodus 32:4
Notice something interesting in the next verse,
When Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “TOMORROW SHALL BE A FEAST TO THE LORD.” - Exodus 32:5
Trying to reconcile the Trinity as worship to the one true God is impossible, just as these two above verses cannot be reconciled. The Trinity doctrine is the ‘strong delusion’ of our day. May it be exposed for the deception that it is.

Rich Kelley from The Ekklesia on December 13, 2014:
Anytime I read an article that doesn't present what I believe because of my past teachings, I'm suspect. I wonder what is the catch? Is this a cult? Why doesn't this teaching fall in line with the masses? Most of the professing Christians today although there are thousands of denominations have a few common things that they are willing to join together concerning. The list includes; Jesus, Rapture mostly pre-trib, the trinity, Christmas, versions of the bible, you have to go to church, tithing, pastor bishop pope is a vocation, the devil satan. None of the masses actually know anything about the above topics except what is accepted as teaching by their religious leaders. The root reason for their beliefs is totally unknown to them, yet they accept and practice their belief as though it were gospel. The root of many and almost everything in the world is a lie from the father of lies. Human reasoning has changed to the point that if you ignore a lie but talk about everything after the lie and it sounds correct then you are good to go. Nitrogen in your tires does not improve safety, prolong the life of your tire, or give you better gas mileage, yet a quick Google search will attest that all those statements are true. NASCAR uses nitrogen in their tires airplanes use it in their tires so the statements made for the family car must be true. People would rather believe a lie than believe that all those people could be wrong. People can't believe that they would be lied to by.........Just as the scripture says there are those that want to be teachers, there are also those that what the status quo and their ears tickled. All we can really do is turn on the light switch, if they insist on turning it off or installing a dimmer switch to control the light it is on them.
