beyond the boundaries of scripture
illustration of the Trinity taken from "My Catholic Faith",
by Father Louis LaRavoire Morrow, p. 32. It has been a very popular
catechism among Roman Catholics.
"And the Catholic Faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in unity. Neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the Substance.... But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of The Holy Ghost is one, the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal.... The Father is made of none, neither created, nor begotten. The
Son is of the Father alone: not made, nor created, but begotten. The Holy Ghost is of the Father and the Son: not made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.... And in this Trinity nothing is afore or after, nothing is greater or less, but the whole three Persons are co-eternal together, and co-equal" (From the Athanasian Creed).
This illustration shows why the concept of the Trinity is false – (here) the Son
and the Holy Spirit have a beginning. Also, since they have the same substance,
they are not eternal. Instead, they are strangely labeled as "co-eternal". Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit (supposedly) are all of one substance. The 3 "Persons"
are really not persons, but "manifestations" of one mega-god. Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit are not "united", but "triune", not eternal, but "co-eternal".
In the Trinity, the Son and Holy Spirit are not self-existent.
The Bible does not mention the Trinity, neither does the Spirit of Prophecy.
The bible speaks of the Godhead (Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20, Colossians 2:9).
The Spirit of Prophecy in reference to the Godhead mentions the "Heavenly Trio",
"Three Dignitaries of Heaven", "Three Holiest Beings in Heaven", "Three Great
Powers of Heaven", "Three great Worthies of Heaven", but the Trinity, not
compatible with scripture, evidently for that reason was unworthy
to have a place in the Spirit of Prophecy.
Then why are 7th Day Adventists worshiping the Trinity today? It has not
always been that way. Looks like we have been duped to embrace this
"abomination of desolation". We seem to be in a state of paralysis and
need to break loose from our careless indifference, and cast off this
monster of ungodliness. There was a reason why sister White did not
give homage to the Trinity, she correctly recognized the concept to be
unbiblical. As for us, we need to get educated and understand whom
we are worshiping. More detailed information available at this link:

Trinity Doctrine - unbiblical philosophy?
The Trinity is a pagan counterfeit resembling the Godhead
of the bible. Who tricked the SDA church to embrace the
Trinity? The doctrines which stand as the pillars of our
faith have been perverted - - do we really care?
We have nothing to fear for the Future except
as we forget the way the Lord has led us
and His teaching in our past History.
However, we need to understand what the OMEGA is about. Sister White was warning us, she said, "the Living Temple contains the Alpha of these theories. The Omega would follow in a little while, I tremble for our people." We cannot possibly hope to be protected by the Lord for the coming time of trouble, if we go along with the OMEGA heresy. We need to find out, in what way we have departed from the Spirit of Prophecy and the pioneers.
