Corruption of Trinity

Isaac Newton adalah ilmuwan yg terkenal dengan teori gravitasinya. Dia adalah ilmuwan kristen yg cukup religius, meskipun demikian dia merasa janggal dengan dogma trinitas & membuat disertasi yg meneliti ayat2 pendukung justifikasi dogma trinitas dengan judul "An Historical Account of Two Notable Corruptions of Scripture".

 

Quote:An Historical Account of Two Notable Corruptions of Scripture is a dissertation by the English Mathematician and Scholar Isaac Newton. First published in 1754, twenty-seven years after Newton’s death, it reviewed all the textual evidence available from ancient sources on two disputed Bible passages, at 1 John 5:7-8 and 1 Timothy 3:16.

 

Newton adalah penganut Kristen dengan aliran unitarian alias tidak percaya dengan dogma trinitas yg menuhankan Yesus. Newton menyatakan penyembahan Yesus sebagai Tuhan adalah bentuk dari idolatria atau sama dengan penyembahan berhala

Quote:Newton is generally thought to have been unitarian and Arian, not holding to Trinitarianism. He listed "worshipping Christ as God" in a list of "Idolatria" in his theological notebook.[3] In a minority view, T.C. Pfizenmaier argued that he held closer to the Eastern Orthodox view of the Trinity rather than the Western one held by Roman Catholics, Anglicans and Protestants.[4] In his final days Newton refused the sacrament of the Church of England.

 

Menurut Newton kedua ayat yg sering dijadikan justifikasi dogma trinitas yaitu 1 Yohannes 5:7 & 1 Timotius 3:16 telah korup & mengalami penambahan2 untuk membenarkan dogma trinitas. Berikut ini pemaparannya dalam disertasinya:

 

Quote:1 Yohannes 5:7 Sebab ada tiga yang memberi kesaksian (di dalam sorga: Bapa, Firman dan Roh Kudus; dan ketiganya adalah satu).

 

terjemahan diatas berasal dari Injil King James Version (KJV) yg berisi:

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

 

Menurut disertasi Newton, kalimat "di dalam sorga: Bapa, Firman dan Roh Kudus; dan ketiganya adalah satu" tidak terdapat dalam Injil asli versi bahasa Yunani. Kalimat tsb pertama kali muncul dalam Injil bahasa Latin sebagai catatan kaki, lalu akhirnya dimasukkan ke dalam ayatnya sendiri.

Quote:Using the writings of the early Church Fathers, the Greek and Latin manuscripts and the testimony of the first versions of the Bible, Newton attempted to demonstrate that the words "in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one," in support of the Trinity doctrine, did not appear in the original inspired Greek Scriptures. He then traced the way in which the spurious reading crept into the Latin versions, first as a marginal note, and later into the text itself. He showed that it was first taken into a Greek text in 1515 by Cardinal Ximenes on the strength of a late Greek manuscript corrected from the Latin. Finally, Newton considered the sense and context of the verse, concluding, "Thus is the sense plain and natural, and the argument full and strong; but if you insert the testimony of ‘the Three in Heaven’ you interrupt and spoil it."

 

Lalu ayat lainnya yg menurut Newton telah mengalami korupsi adalah 1 Timotius 3:16.

Quote:1 Timotius 3:16 Dan sesungguhnya agunglah rahasia ibadah kita: "Dia, yang telah menyatakan diri-Nya dalam rupa manusia, dibenarkan dalam Roh; yang menampakkan diri-Nya kepada malaikat-malaikat, diberitakan di antara bangsa-bangsa yang tidak mengenal Allah; yang dipercayai di dalam dunia, diangkat dalam kemuliaan."

 

terjemahan diatas juga berasal dari Injil King James Version (KJV) yg berisi:

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.

 

Menurut Newton kata "God" dalam KJV sengaja disisipkan supaya terbaca "God was manifest in the flesh.". Di dalam injil bahasa Yunani tidak terdapat kata "God" atau dalam Injil terjemahan B. Indonesia ditulis dengan kata ganti "Dia" dengan d kapital.

Quote:Newton showed how, by a small alteration in the Greek text, the word "God" was inserted to make the phrase read "God was manifest in the flesh." He demonstrated that early Church writers in referring to the verse knew nothing of such an alteration.

 

Newton tidak mempublikasikan disertasinya, karena pada iklim politik saat itu di Inggris orang yg membuat tulisan yg menentang doktrin trinitas akan mendapatkan hukuman karena dianggap menghina Tuhan (blasphemy).

Quote:Newton did not publish these findings during his lifetime, likely due to the political climate. Those who wrote against the doctrine of the Trinity were subject to persecution in England. As late as 1698 the Act for the Suppression of Blasphemy and Profaneness made it an offense to deny one of the persons of the Trinity to be God, punishable with loss of office, employment and profit on the first occasion, and imprisonment for a repetition. Newton’s friend William Whiston (translator of the works of Josephus) lost his professorship at Cambridge for this reason in 1711. In 1693 a pamphlet attacking the Trinity was burned by order of the House of Lords, and the next year its printer and author were prosecuted. In 1697 Thomas Aikenhead, an eighteen-year-old student charged with denying the Trinity, was hanged at Edinburgh, Scotland.

Newton saja yg Ilmuwan (pastinya banyak berpikir dong) sudah tidak percaya dengan doktrin Trinitas, lalu kenapa anda masih percaya?
