“…In the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils (demons).”
—I Timothy 4:1
“Thou believest that there is one God (or God is one); thou doest well; the devils (demons) also believe, and tremble.”
The basic difference between the Oneness Doctrine and the Trinity Doctrine is simply this: the Oneness Doctrine teaches the Biblical truth that God is One, while the Trinity Doctrine teaches a manufactured error that God is Three. And while Trinitarians ardently maintain their belief in One God (albeit in Three Persons), they adamantly refuse the Apostolic (Oneness) mode of water baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38), preferring the traditional, Roman Catholic-fostered Trinitarian formula derived from Matthew 28:19. What they fail to see is the sinister—yea, diabolical—plot of Satan and his henchmen (demons) to spiritually castrate those who turn to religious orthodoxy for spiritual aid. For according to James 2:19 the demons tremble at the knowledge of the One True God, and they know that they are powerless against the mighty power of His Name. “These signs shall follow them that believe. In my name … they shall cast out demons.” Simply repeating His name is not enough—the seven sons of Sceva experimentally determined that for us; there must be a life-changing transformation through repentance, baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Ghost (which is the Spirit of Christ).
Thus, the contemporary orthodox “Christian” doctrine has been effectively neutered, because the power of the knowledge of the true nature of Almighty God has been completely eradicated from it. The Trinitarian concept of the Godhead denies the absolute deity of Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Word of God. “In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him.” (Col. 2:9-10) In this manner, demons have defused the only weapon they fear—the unmitigated Truth of God’s Word—by placing a cheap imitation of it back in the hands of people who are powerless against evil without help from above.
If angels in Heaven rejoice when one sinner repents, how must the demons in Hell rejoice when one sinner is baptized with the Trinitarian formula! Because it is only when a sinner repents and is baptized in the name of Jesus Christ that his sins are remitted; with any other mode of baptism his sins are retained. Therefore we must conclude that the chains of the Trinity Doctrine were forged in Hell’s fires by trembling demons, whose only hope of keeping helpless souls in bondage is to prevent them from having a personal encounter with Jesus Christ through an Acts 2:38 new birth experience.
