On May 20, 325 AD the world was forever changed. Emperor Constantine called a meeting of the 318 Bishops at Nicea and on that day they instituted one of the greatest flaws of   American religion today.   This is the doctrine of the Trinity, suggesting the view of the Oneness doctrine, believing on one God and His name being Jesus, is no longer correct.   The Trinity doctrine cannot be proven by simply reading the scriptures; it has to be described and explained in detail, before you can begin to see the Trinitarian view.   The Trinity doctrine is   a doctrine of inference, not a doctrine of fact.   If you ever listen or take part in a Oneness verses Trinity debate you will find that as long as they are quoting scriptures the Trinity looses ground.   Hence, the doctrine of the Trinity must be “injected” into the scriptures to prove itself.   One man once said “The Trinity has to be piped into Scripture before it can be piped out.”
