Hello all. I was wondering if I could get some feedback and/or help in how to respond to this. It was posted on another forum, outside of Catholic Answers, which I came across. It is a bit troubling to me.
It is on the Holy Trinity, and its alledged origins. It appears, to me, to have been written by a practicioner of some form of neo-Gnosticism:
"Misconceptions and Misunderstandings have plagued mankind for centuries now.
First of all the trinity is Egyptian in origin. It came from the great sage and beloved prophet Enoch (Idris) a.k.a. Imhotep, otherwise known as Thrice the Great, or three times great. Count Scottula is right on in the spiritual components here. This is not a pagan thought, and there is no teaching in the idea of a trinity actually meaning three gods. It is the Father, Son, and the Mother (Holy Spirit). The Holy Spirit existed as the Motherly Demiurge in all ancient manuscripts and teachings. This motherly presence within the creation, is in itself present within the Father, the all empowering and embracing Life Force a.k.a. the Light, The father lives within the Son, and the Son is the flesh, mankind itself. This is the simple part of Kabballah (eidolon (ego), pleroma, kenoma, gnosticism).
Jesus was both a Prophet and a Priest-King, there is no doubt that he knew what he was doing, because he was of the Order of Melchisedec (Melchizedek).
Hebrews 5:4-6 - “And no man takes this honor to himself, but only he who is called of God, as was Aaron. So, also Christ did not glorify himself by becoming a High-Priest, but he glorified him who said to him, Thou art my Son; today have I begotten thee. And he said also in another place, Thou art a Priest-King forever after the Order of Melchisedec.”
The same as his ancestor King David (Thutmose III)
Hebrews 7:21 - “For they were made priests without oaths; but this one was made a Priest with an oath, as it was said concerning him by David, the Lord has sworn, and will not lie, thou art a Priest forever after the Order of Melchisedec.”
Do not forget Jesus’ Royalty, His father Joseph or Osareph (High-Priest), and the Virgin Mary (Virgin Princess) gave Jesus a birthright that God had given them through their royal blood. The royalty passed through the blood of the female heir. Did the teacher of righteous give up his thrown for fullfillment of prophecy? It was in his birthright, and tradition to be titled Son of God and Priest-King. This was seen as a balance of all powers, in ancient times. "
I look forward to all of your responses. Thank you.
