Summary And Concluding Remarks

            This book has shown historical facts surrounding the Trinitarian controversy. It has shown that the Trinitarian doctrine was ratified only in the fourth century, proving that Jesus (peace be upon him) was not its own author. Christendom has for centuries been in disarray, and the real followers of Jesus (peace be upon him) found the Trinitarian doctrine very strange and abominable. They not only opposed it in words, but many of them also stood firmly in defense of the Divine Unity of God, a doctrine taught by Jesus himself and all other prophets (peace be upon them all). The leaders and members of the Apostolic church - a group of the real followers of Jesus (peace be upon him) - died in thousands as a result of persecution against them by the Romans in collaboration with those of the Pauline church. The Unitarian Christians preferred to die for a noble cause (i.e., in their great attempt to defend their monotheistic belief) rather than accept the mysterious doctrine of Trinity.

            The Trinitarian school of thought dominated the Christian world only after the Pauline church imposed it by force on those who neither understood it nor sincerely accepted it as a divine precept. Such coercion was strongly condemned and resisted by those who believed that Jesus was a mere prophet of God, and not one of three in a Trinity. Politics, however, played a very significant role in selling the idea of Triune God to the Christian masses. In fact, it took Christendom more than three hundred years to ratify the Trinitarian doctrine. But even after ratification, the Unitarian Christians continued to defy it. Imposition of the death penalty for those who opposed the Trinitarian system had ultimately given it a clear commanding edge over the pristine tenets of the Apostolic church.

            The book has likewise examined some of the controversial personalities behind the success of the Trinitarian doctrine. These include Athanasius, Constantine and Paul. These individuals were as controversial as the Trinitarian doctrine itself. For instance, Athanasius was considered by virtue of an Imperial decree as a public enemy who was wanted by the then Emperor Constantius "dead or alive", and this happened years after the ratification of the Trinitarian doctrine. In his attempt to save his life, he resorted to hiding from one place to another until he discovered a young woman who was known for her exquisite beauty. Their clandestine affair resulted in an illicit, adulterous crime by a man who had engineered the Athanasian creed (the Trinitarian doctrine).

            By the same token, Emperor Constantine (who ratified the Doctrine of Trinity) was himself a tyrant and criminal who murdered his son, his wife and many more, because of his lust for political power. Neither did he understand the real theological foundation of Christianity nor was he himself a real Christian. His crimes, including the murder of thousands of innocent individuals, coupled with his paganistic belief, were grievous. Ironically, however, life was made easy for him by the Christian clergymen. They offered him forgiveness, despite the fact that only God can forgive those grievous sins! So, in return, Constantine gave them imperial protection; and, subsequently, he ratified for them their doctrine of Trinity.

            Moreover, the very founder of today's Christianity (Paul) was himself very controversial. Christians' belief that he was a divinely inspired apostle is so obscure. First of all, Paul (who had never personally met Jesus) was not among the twelve disciples. Second, he had persecuted many of the real followers of Jesus. Third, Paul's teachings, in general, contradict those of Jesus (peace be upon him). In fact, large part of the New Testament, which was ratified by Emperor Constantine during the Nicene Council in 325 A. D., was Paul's own fabrications. Specific, Paul's letters to the Romans, the Galatians, the Philippians, and the like were his own making, which do not at all conform to the real teachings of Jesus (peace be upon him). In fact, this book has shown that virtually all of the Pauline epistles had no reference to the practical teachings, personal sayings and real personality of Jesus (peace be upon him).

            Based on the historical facts presented in this book, Christians only need to use their objectivity and rational thinking to realize that the man-made Trinity that they have been worshipping all the years is nothing but a product of political and personal manipulations by such men as Athanasius, Constantine and Paul. Their criminal backgrounds or immoralities were enough grounds that they were devoid of any divine inspiration. It follows, therefore, that the Trinitarian doctrine is human and not divine in nature.

            This book has also shown that the mysterious nature of the controversial Trinity can be solved through the concept of God in Islam. Several Qur'anic injunctions are presented, which explicitly refute the Trinitarian doctrine and the divinity of Jesus; affirm the Divine Unity of God; stress the fundamental Truth that God is self reliant, hence devoid of any partner; and highlight the belief in Allah (the One and Only True God) as the key to salvation. On the other hand, joining partners with Allah is the key to Hell-Fire, so He commands us not to worship anyone other than Him. Indeed, Allah Is self-sufficient; He does not have to share His Divinity with anyone else. Therefore, Christians who really seek Truth only need to revert to the belief in the absolute Oneness of God, for them to be able to avoid the confusion or mystery underlying the Trinitarian doctrine. After all, Jesus and all other prophets (peace be upon them all) taught the Divine Unity of God, which is the very creed of Islam - the peaceful submission to the Will of God.

            Today, Islam has already surpassed Christianity as the Number One religion in the world. This is so, because the real seekers of Truth found Islam as the only religion that truly advocates the belief in the absolute Oneness of God. Furthermore, Islam is growing so fast, because many of those who embraced it as their new faith have played a very significant role in conveying its message to the rest of mankind.

            Islam considers salvation as a personal responsibility, that is based on one's faith, piety, righteousness, steadfastness and noble service - not an object of blood atonement or vicarious sacrifice. It abolishes idolatry, a practice which is commonplace to all other religions. It is the only religion in the world that has upheld the absolute Oneness of God - a divine concept, which in every respect serves as the ultimate solution to the Trinitarian controversy.
