Reopening the council of Nicaea: Is Jesus God?

The council of Nicaea needs to be reopened with a fresh pair of unbiased eyes. Does the bible really teach that Jesus is God?

The council of nicaea was ultimately decided by a pagan emporer who had an incredibly limited knowledge of the holy scriptures. Since then, we have never really questioned possibly one of the most important, yet well-hidden secrets of the truth of Christianity.

Is it really wise for a seeker of truth to take the word of a Civilization well known for it’s pagan Gods and not question such an assertion made by them over a thousand years ago?

Let’s take a look at some basic arguments which directly contradict the doctrine of the trinity.

Father Greater Than The Son?

New International Version – “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.”

The problem here is obvious. If Jesus is God, then how can someone be greater than him? It makes no sense whatsoever that Jesus could be the almighty God, the alpha, and omega if there is something greater than him.

This statement cannot be justified by Trinitarians either as they believe that Jesus, God, and the holy spirit are equal, separate but as one at the same time. Clearly then, as we look at this scripture at face value, as it is written, then we cannot justify calling Jesus the almighty God. 

Believing that Jesus is God is tantamount to calling him a liar. It is impossible to call yourself a Christian, and at the same time believe that Jesus is God. That is by no means to diminish the importance of Jesus in God’s plans, but we should not give him all of the glory when it belongs to another.

Origins of the unholy Trinity

The trinity got its start in Ancient Babylon with Nimrod – Tammuz – and Semiramis. Semiramis demanded worship for both her husband and her son as well as herself. She claimed that her son, was both the father and the son. Yes, he was “god the father” and “god the son” – The first divine incomprehensible trinity.” — (The Two Babylons, Alexander Hislop, p. 51)

It may (or may not) surprise you to learn that the origins of three Gods in one are by no means unique to Christendom. It has been used many times in history, not least with Babylon, which is commonly referred to as false religion in the Bible.

Do you believe that Jesus would promote such a belief system? There is only one, a vague scripture which connects the father, the son, and the holy spirit together but even that certainly does not stipulate that they are 3 persons in one.

Matthew 28:19

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit . . .”

This by no means makes God and Jesus equal, nor does it prove the unequalness of the holy spirit.

Perhaps the most powerful and most used evidence that Jesus and God are separate can be found in John.

John 17:3

This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.

God sent Jesus to us. God did not send himself to us, otherwise, he surely would have said that. We can clearly see the closeness that Jesus shares with God in the scriptures quoted, but does that mean that they are one? certainly not.

Does John 1:1 Prove That Jesus Is God Almighty?

John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

The way that this is translated, it does seem at first glance as though it supports the divinity of Jesus. However, many bible translators chose not to use the phrase ‘the word was God’ based on their knowledge of biblical greek they rendered that it should be translated as ‘The word was a God’. God simply means might one and does not refer to the only true God.

Whatever the case, one scripture out of the literally hundreds which contradict the idea that Jesus is God does not make a major difference in the debate.

God Has A Name?

Perhaps the most damning evidence against the doctrine of the trinity is that God almighty has been partitioned from Jesus in one very important way. Not only does he have a separate title, but he also has a name which has only ever been used to describe God the Father.

Exodus 6:3 King James Version (KJV)

“And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name, Jehovah was I not known to them.”

Psalm 83:18 King James Version (KJV)

“That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.”

Isaiah 12:2 King James Version (KJV)

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.”

It is estimated that the name of God, Yahweh (translated into English as Jehovah) can be found in the original texts of the Bible nearly 7,000 times. 

Unfortunately, the original texts have been masked by trinitarian scholars over the years, however, no serious bible scholar could dispute that God almighty has a name that is completely separate from Jesus.

  1. Interesting how we seem to agree on a number of other topics! A little fun fact is that Hinduism also has a core trinity among its gods – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, who play the roles of creator, sustainer and destroyer of the universe and that within it
