WHERE DID THE TRINITY DOCTRINE ORIGINATE FROM?
Now where did the belief found taught in the doctrine of the Trinity originate from? Did it originate from the teachings of the Bible? Or does the teachings of this doctrine originate from somewhere else?
"The terms Father, Son, and Spirit are but symbols which stand for three manifestations of God...God goes forth from Himself in the eternal Son, returning to Himself in the Eternal Spirit." Dictionary of All Scriptures and Myths, by G.A. Gaskell, p 770 (this dictionary uses the philosophic sacredly held writings of all religions such as Zoroaster, Philo, Swedenborg, Buddha, Hermes, the Qabbalah, etc., in order to derive its definitions--hence the definitions given are mystical, occultic and spiritualistic in nature).
So the teachings found in the doctrine of the Trinity originated from the sacredly held mystical, occultic and spiritualistic writings from various non-Biblical sources.
