Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

The JESUS --- PLUS --- doctrine!

The Jesus plus doctrine is similar to the Trinity!
They say that Jesus Christ alone is NOT the completeness or the totality of the ONE God.
They claim that the Lord Jesus shares deity with another person the Father and the Holy Spirit is the active force or the power of the two persons who together are one God.

This type of understanding of God is just like the Trinity deception with a slight modification.
However, all those deceptive antichrist teachings have one thing in common, contrary to (Mark 12:29 + 1 Cor. 8:4) they say that God is many, TWO or THREE separate identities or persons and each one of them is a part of this so called 'God'.

In believing so, God becomes a CONCEPT rather than the person of Jesus Christ our Lord and that which they call God becomes an unknowable mystical God, just like the God of the Muslims, Jews, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons and Trinitarians etc.

They all believe in the CONCEPT of God because to them God has made it evident that He is, "since what may be known about God is plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." (Romans 1:19+20)

The question is NOT whether you know about God but rather whether you know Him.
And anyone who does not know God will perish (2 Thes. 1:8)
Anyone who does NOT believe that Jesus Christ is the only one God will die in their sins. (John 8:24)

Yes that's right! There is no room for your own idea or private interpretation.
(Rev. 3:19) Jesus said; "those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be ernest and repent," or He will come in an hour when you least expect.

Jesus never said that you can believe in your own understanding of god and then you shall be saved, the whole world believes in a god of their own making, and surely they are not saved.
Because salvation is found in no one else and in NO---- OTHER----- NAME! (Acts 4:12) Only in Jesus Christ our Lord!
He who does NOT believe God's wrath remains. (John 3:36)

But anyone who turns wholeheartedly and without restraint to the Lord Jesus Christ and believes only in Him will be saved. (Acts 16:31)
It's not complicated! Jesus said, "I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved." (John 10:9) It's that simple, only JESUS!

How dangerous then is the Scripture --- Minus --- doctrine? Where claiming that Scripture, the very Word of God is somehow deliberately deceitful and to know the 'true Jesus' you must discount many of the writings in His Word.

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning." John 1:1-2

According to your view Paul this passage should in fact read "In the beginning was the Word...........................and the Word was God. He was......God in the beginning." John 1:1-2

On the contrary Joe, the 'Trinity Deception' is found in the post here with that name. The 'Trinity Deception' claims there is no Trinity.

Modern day magi;
The true Jesus is the one we proclaim!
Unlike the Trinitarians who say that Jesus is a God among two other persons who are equally God!

The Word of God is true and not deceitful! It is just as it says in (John 1:1).
The Word of God is only understood by the Spirit of God or the Spirit of Jesus Christ if you like.

To some the Lord Jesus has hidden the revelation and understanding of his Word. (Luke 10:21--- Matt. 11:27--- Matt. 13:13+14)
To others He has opened their eyes, ears and heart to understand and believe.

To believe that the Lord God is two or three persons, identities or whatever, is a powerful deception and no other deception comes even close to that. The reason is, because it divides God who is one into many.
