The Battle against the “Evils” of “Arianism”

While browsing a website, I came across an article on a Catholic document on “Arianism.” I doubted if it was actually from the Catholic church, so I Googled some of the phrases and found the document on a Catholic site, which is proof enough to me.

The stuff in here is astounding. I used to have doubts on whether the trinity was real or not, and if I really was a heretic for not accepting it. Now those doubts are completely gone. This document unintentionally admits the true origins of the trinity doctrine.

The Jews proposed a supreme God who created by His word. It was an idea of a mediating “Word or Wisdom – the Word which is pronounced, the Wisdom which is created – whereby the Father communicated Himself to man and took possession of him (Guitton 1965, 81).” The Greeks could not see how a finite and changeable world could come from an eternal and changeless God. They proposed the idea of a “mediating Intelligence or even Word, a first emanation of the first principle which reduced the distance between God and the world (Guitton 1965, 81).” The primitive Church had to “reconcile the notions they had inherited from Judaism with those they had derived from philosophy.

“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 2:8 (KJV)

In the Book of Acts, we see people who turned their life for God throwing away their past beliefs, not twisting the truth to justify them. Did you know Catholic means “universal?” The Catholic church was a combination of Greek philosophy, paganism, and the Gospel mixed together to appeal to all Roman citizens, subjecting them to the Roman Catholic State-Church. This church then sought to destroy even the slightest opposition with the fist of the Roman Empire. If you think I’m wrong, look in a history book; it’s right there. It becomes obvious why Constantine supported it so much. He turned the Roman government into a religion–a god.

The Council did triumph over Arianism but only after fifty years of bitter battling.

Yes, it certainly is difficult to burn thousand of books and burn people at the stake. It’s truly disgusting why this has gone virtually unnoticed by so many for so long. This “church” has been driving so many people away from God due to it’s hypocrisy and oppression.

Yes, that was harsh against the Catholic church, but sometimes you have to be. Jesus himself did the same thing with the Pharisees. I’ll probably write more on this subject later.
