Beware of Man-Made Doctrines

Men dream up doctrines

The Trinity invented…

“Jesus did not spend a great deal of time discoursing about the trinity or original sin or the incarnation, which have preoccupied later Christians. He went around doing good and being compassionate.”

Karen Armstrong

How many Christian doctrines are there? It depends on the sect of Christianity that you subscribe to and who you ask. Some say there are three, five, or ten maybe. Some break it down to the “main” doctrines of Christianity. Emperor Constantine in the 4th Century had a lot to do with creating doctrines. He formed various Councils to decide which doctrines were right and which were wrong. If you were on the wrong side, your were immediately excommunicated. Can you imagine going to a church council meeting and being excommunicated because you didn’t vote in the majority? Let’s ask the Pope! Wait. Was the position of Pope made up?

I love traveling with my wife all over the world. I enjoy the study of nutrition and cooking plant-based meals. I consider myself a Christian agnostic when it comes to god and religion. Namaste, Vic
