Second, most Protestants believe the Nicene Creed, another masterpiece of the one Church.
Third, the core dogmas of Trinity and Christ as fully God AND fully Human were fully developed 600-700 AD,
No one ever taught a TRIAD of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
No one ever even hallucinated the Father and Son as separated "people." Jesus said that the Father and Spirit were within.
No one ever thought of the Spirit OF God as a member of the Godhead.
Everyone defined God as ONE
FATHER was the thought
SON was the WordS when the "father" first SPOKE words.
SPIRIT was the breath that passes as invisible power between THOUGH and audible WORDS.
In the Nicean creed note that both GOD and LORD designate the same Deity which dwelled fully in Jesus of Nazareth for our salvation.
God speaks of the invisible Deity. Lord identifies the same GOD working in the World. God annointed the Rock, Manna, Water and every instance where He reaches into our world in an audible or visible way. This does not define two PEOPLE.
"We believe in
one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible:-and in.
one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten of the Father, that is of the substance of the Father;
God of God and Light of light;
true God of true God;
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father: by whom all things were made, both which are in heaven and on earth: who for the sake of us men, and on account of our salvation, descended became incarnate, and was made man; suffered, arose again the third day, and ascended into the heavens and will come again to judge the living and the dead.
[We] also [believe] in the Holy Spirit.
But the holy Catholic and Apostolic church anathematizes those who say
"There was a time when he was not," and
"He was not before he was begotten" and
"He was made from that which did not exist,"
and those who assert that he is of other substance or essence than the Father, or that he was created, or is susceptible of change.' 62
Substantia I. that of which a thing consists, the being, essence, contents, material, substance
Ousi-a that which is one's own, one's substance, property, 5. in the concrete, the primary real,
the substratum underlying all change and process in nature,
God always had His WORD and His WISDOM or Spirit with Him. Jehovah is ONE GOD.
The NAME (singular) of Father, Son and Spirit is Jesus Christ.
The Catholic "trinity" contradicts all church scholars by making a three headed idol or defining the trinity as a FAMILY as in all pagan trinities consiste NECESSARILY of Father, Mother and eternally-infant child where the MOTHER OF THE GODS or Mary is the true Mediatrix.
The Historic Church for several centuries before there was a POPE called itself The Church of Christ. If you read the recorded history of England for a thousand years you will discover that only the BISHOP in Rome thought that he was the HEAD of both religious and civil government. Just about everyone in the world did NOT think so. The BISHOP at Rome as a kinda backward town became the CLEARING HOUSE to send out preachers BECAUSE he was a wing of the Roman Government.
