Dave Allen on the Trinity
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Dave Allen hilariously explained the perils of teaching theology to a child, particularly, the concept of a Triune Godhead.
In his letter to James Smith, on the 08th December, 1822, Thomas Jefferson elaborated on his hatred for the Pauline Christian doctrine of the Trinity. He said, “The hocus-pocus phantasm of a ‘God’ like another Cerberus, with one body and three heads, had its birth and growth in the blood of thousands and thousands of martyrs.” He continued, “In fact, the Athanasian paradox that one is three, and three but one, is so incomprehensible to the human mind, that no candid man can say he has any idea of it, and how can he believe what presents no idea? He who thinks he does, only deceives himself. He proves, also, that man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without a rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason, and the mind becomes a wreck.”
