150 AD

Justin Martyr, makes the first change in Apostle's teaching on water baptism and
the godhead. Since Justin did not believe that Jesus was God The Father manifested
in the flesh as the Apostles taught, he baptized his converts as follows: "I
baptize you in the name of God the Father and the Lord of all, and our Savior,
Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost". Justin believed and taught as the Jews, that
the name of God was so holy and such a great mystery that man could never know it.
This is why he believed God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ were two different
persons. It was this unbelief in the name of Jesus Christ as being also the name
of God the Father and the Holy Ghost that laid the foundation of the coming
development of the different trinities in the Christian religious world.

I Tim 3:16

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the
flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles,
believed on in the world, received up into glory.

II Th 2:10-12

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they
received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause
God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie: That they all
might be damned who believed not the truth , but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

220 AD

Origen introduces the doctrine of infant baptism at his pre-baptismal school in


Alexandria, Egypt.

190 AD Origen (philosopher) and Tertullian (lawyer) who became believers via the
teachings of Justin Martyr change Justin Marty's baptismal formula to just quoting
Mt 28:19. In this second ( Catholic church father) change on water baptism the
teachings of the Apostles are also rejected and both Origen and Tertullian begin
to express a difference between the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as three different
persons of the godhead. In 200 AD Tertullian adopts the Roman pagan word
"Trinitas" as a description of the three persons of the Christian godhead. Both
men at this time developed two different doctrines of the Christian trinity which
in fact is not Christian but are modifications and adaptations from the pagan
trinities. Origen developed what is called the Eastern trinity which formed the
foundational teachings of the Greek Orthodox religious system and Tertullian
developed the Western Latin trinity which became the foundational teaching of the
Roman Catholic religious system. Of importance the word trinity was used for the
first time in Christian theology in 197 AD and does not appear in the scriptures.
The Trinitarians have always believed for one to be a saved Christian one must be
trinity. If this were so then ALL those who follow the teachings of the Apostles
including the Apostles were never saved because they never believed nor baptized
in any type of trinity. Furthermore, Jesus name is the name of the father, (John
5:43) son, (Matthew 1:21) and of the Holy Ghost. (John 14:26) The whole family of
God is named Jesus, says Ephesians 3:15. It has all power in Matthew 28:18. It
alone can save in Acts 4:10-12. And is commanded for all things which includes
baptism in Colossians 3:17. Jesus said do it in the name of and not names. Luke
24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name
among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Jesus was the speaker here. Remission
or forgiveness, follows repenting according to him. We read in Acts 2 that Peter
preached at Jerusalem after receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence
of other tongues. Now he is preaching the word (Romans 10:17) to the Jews; who
felt the move of God or heard his knocking on their heart's door. And they just
asked in verse 37 what shall we do to be saved. Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto
them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the
remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. They that
gladly received the word were baptized. And there 3,000 baptized that day says
verse 41. Nobody, gets saved except by their faith in action (See James 2;15-26
and Hebrews 11: 1-37) and the grace of God, (Ephesians 2:8-10. We are created in
Christ Jesus, and not in a triad! Also Galatian 3:27 "For as many of you that have
been baptized into Christ, have put on Christ". Again in Matthew 7:21-27. Many who
did all in his name except baptism in Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all, says Acts
10:36!) shown at Calvary, and after repenting. Baptism is a commandment. 1 Peter
3:21 states this clearly! The like figure whereunto [even] baptism doth also now
save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good
conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Even as Naaman was
made clean by his active faith in 2 Kings 5:1-15.

220 AD

Origen introduces the doctrine of infant baptism at his pre-baptismal school in


Alexandria, Egypt.

Justin Martyr makes the first change in Apostle's teaching on water baptism 150
AD. While he keeps their teachings on repentance, the blood, and submersion, he
changes the words used in the ceremony and he lays the foundation for the
development of the soon coming trinity formula of water baptism.

197 AD

Origen and Tertullian develop the first two-trinity doctrines and then develop the
trinity formula of water baptism. Like Justin Martyr, Origen and Tertullian keep
Apostle's teaching on the repentance, the blood, and submersion, but they no
longer use the name of Jesus Christ in the application of water baptism to the
convert.

220 AD
Origen begins teaching the doctrine of infant baptism because of the perceived
doctrine of original sin at his pre-baptismal school in Alexandria Egypt. In order
to commit sin, one must know how to do it. For him that that knoweth to do good
and doeth it not, to him it is sin, James 4:17. He that believeth and is baptized,
shall be saved: but he that believeth not, shall be damned, Mark 16:16. One must
be baptized in active faith to be saved. All babies are saved and one is must
reach a age of accountability in order to commit sin. Adam and Eve did not eat of
the tree of inheritance. Sin was introduced or brought in by them, but never
passed on in their D.N.A. or genealogy. Psalm 51 taken out of context is the only
verse used for this fallacy!

325 AD

Under Emperor Constantine at the Council of Nicaea the holy trinity and the
trinity formula of water baptism are declared official doctrine of the empire and
the Roman Catholic Church.

416 AD

Infant baptism becomes universal teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. During the
dark ages and mediaeval times the Roman Catholic Church adopts to additional forms
of water baptism. These are pouring water on and sprinkling. In their church
writings they acknowledge these changes came via tradition and there is no Bible
foundation for these changes. In the Greek Orthodox churches of the East these two
new forms of water baptism are rejected as false doctrine. With the coming of the
reformation movement and Martin Luther, water baptism is declared to have no
saving quality and is only an outward sign of an inward faith. This is a
nonbiblical or unscriptural belief. This is due to the fact that the Reformers
believed the blood was applied at confession and not in water baptism. In looking
at the formula of water baptism Luther decided to use the Western trinity and
formula of water baptism which the majority of Protestant churches still use
today.
