Ang salitang TRINITY ay hindi din ito mababasa sa loob ng bibliya. Naniniwala tayo sa trinity hindi dahil mababasa ang salitang ito sa loob ng bibliya. Naniniwala tayo nito, dahil, ang tinutumbok natin nito ay nasa bibliya. Ang kaisahan sa Ama, Anak at Espiritu Santo (Mateo 28:19).
Ganon din ang salitang Pope. Naniniwala tayo nito, hindi dahil mababasa ang salitang ito sa loob ng bibliya. Naniniwala tayo nito dahil, ang tinutumbok natin nito, ay ang tungkulin (office) ni Pedro bilang pinagkakatiwalaan ng mga susi ng kaharian ng Dios (Mateo 16:19).
Matthew 16:19 Good News Translation (GNT)
19 I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven; what you prohibit on earth will be prohibited in heaven, and what you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.
The office of the POPE is a Prime Minister, the one entrusted the KEYS of the KINGDOM (Matthew 16:19):
"When Jesus entrusted the 'keys of the Kingdom' to Peter (Mat 16:19), he is referring to an important Old Testament passage, Isaiah 22:20-22, where Hezekiah, the royal heir to David's throne and King of Israel in Isaiah's day, replaced his old Prime Minister, Shebna, with a new one named Eliakim. Everyone could tell which one of the royal cabinet members was the new Prime Minister since he was given the 'keys of the kingdom'. By entrusting to Peter the 'keys of the Kingdom', Jesus established the office of Prime Minister for administering the Church as his Kingdom on earth. The 'keys' are a symbol, then, of Peter's office and primacy to be handed on to his successor; thus it has been handed down throughout the ages."
