a recognized autonomous branch of the Christian Church


I do not believe in a trinity. I do not believe in the KJV I prefer the NKJV or the Geneva. I believe in 1 Timothy. I believe Jesus came to show the law could be kept not to do away with it. Where do I fit in? I have searched in my local area and almost all churches preach the trinity. I have visited some of them and found that they preach what people want to hear to get their money and not the truth.

Any advice would be appreciated. I would go to a Mormon church but I don't believe in the book of Mormon.

You may want to check out Jehovah's Witness...

Much of what you say falls in line with that Christian sect.

Thank you I will do that. I wouldn't be asking this question but I find myself lost.

Why do you need to go to any church...so desperately ? Why do you need to identify yourself with an established institution ?

There are no "acts" churches, all follow some false doctrines, some worse than others.

You may find your self trading one "false" aspect of a theology for another.

"I do not believe in a trinity."

How can you believe in one thing and not the other, especially if you bilieve in Jesus and his teaching, or rather his purpose then why do away with some of his teachings and believe what you want?

just a question, i want to understand what motivates you ...

Just make up your own religion and get the zealots pay you ni cash.

Just as all the churches mentioned within this very thread have done so before.

It's a real no brainer.

Yeah I am about half way through the Jehovah Witness page on Wiki and find myself wondering about the 1914 date. I believe a lot of what they believe but I am not sure about setting specific dates on things. It's a lot to read and I will finish reading up on them. Will let you know what I think and if anyone else has a denomination suggestion please let me know. This thread was not made to bait anyone into any debate it was a serious question as I have been looking for awhile now.

What I read here is

"I'm a religious sheep, let me in, please... "

So desperate to fit in with the other religious sheep, you don't even see that you are asking for something that no one can give you... where do you fit in. Well, how about right where you are? Why do you need a club house?

lonely??

Choose the denomination that teaches you there is only one Savior. If you can keep the law, Christ was not needed. If you do a quick read of the sermon on the mount, this is the degree of rigor that had to be followed by the Savior. Can you do it?

On the topic of the Trinity, consider this:

Father in Hebrew is Aleph Bet (Strong House). The alphabet writes the Word.

Son in Hebrew is Bet (House) Nun (Seed). The Word is Christ and the house of the seed.

For anything in nature to combine, it must have a catalyst. Water is the immersion of the soul into the material world. Matter is the word Mater from material. Mater is Mother. The Holy Spirit is that of the secondary nature of the God, the one that is involved into the material world. This is a concept called involution and evolution. Baptism is what we call it in the Bible, or rising to new life from immersion.

Mother in Hebrew is Aleph (Strong) Mem (Waters). She is the Catalyst for the letters to become words. DNA is our evidence of this.

The Trinity is one Elohim, or the two becoming one new thing. The Son is the stamp of the clay. As the house of seed, he holds the archetypes and patterns for all of nature.

Colossians 1

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Considering this, you can go back and read my threads to see more of this story. I am not arguing with you. I am only showing you how I see the territory from my own map.

Good luck. There are great churches out there. I would find a Baptist Church, although they do not know the true meaning of Baptism. I find that ironic.

The very breath in your mouth and life in your veins is from God. Name one external thing you provide to sustain your life. Do you make your hair grow, eyes see, sun shine or Earth turn? You think and move. Without the Word that created you, it's lights out. You cannot live apart from EVERY external thing to your consciousness. Again, which of those did you provide?

1 Corinthians 1

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

Well the bibles clear what to do when someone makes a prophecy in the lords name that's false...

Something that's happened with the JW far to often.

You know as much as people make fun of Jehovah Witnesses I never even considered researching them. After reading through the entirety of what Wiki has on them they don't seem too off to what I was looking for. I myself have made fun of them in the past when in fact it was the local church making the rounds to talk to people and not them.

I am not too sure about the timeline they set for things or whether it is a perfect fit for me but now I am considering visiting them. For some reason I don't think it will feel as foreign as these other churches did when I went to them. Thanks again for that advice.

Apostolic Oneness. They certainly are not Trinity. But they are Pentecostal, just not Trinity. You can find them everywhere, but you have to look for the names. Call the pastors of the churches you are interested in and ask them if they are Apostolic, that will usually give you a clue.

OP, I found myself in search for the one Christian denomination that I could relate with 100% and found there was none.

There is/was not any denomination that I could say I truly believed everything they stood for so I began to call myself a 'seeker of truth'.

I didn't want to label my belief however I found (and still find) others do want me in one category or another.

To believe in Jesus does not make me a Christian.

To believe in the baptismal of transgression (reincarnation) does not make me a buddhist or an older sect of the Christian religion.

I am a believer of spirit. A seeker of truth and love. Noting special...

Instead of going to church I listen to my favorite philosopher to get more in tune with my spirit self.

Take a listen...
