The false church is following a man-made teaching. They have to go to "denominational opinions of men" that originated in the 2nd and 3rd century to explain and discuss their beliefs. It is also interesting that the same bunch at Rome that dreamed up the trinity, also ushered in the dark ages by killing people for possessing Bibles. It is important to realize that the Catholic Church is the "Great Whore" in the book of Rev. and the "mother of harlots" (the harlots being all the denominations and independent churches that retain and espouse the trinity heresy). It's also important to understand that until the Council of Nicaea adopted a three-person polytheistic god (Trinity), Jews were, in great numbers, accepting Christianity; and that after Nicaea, there is literally no evidence of Jews coming to Christianity. In fact, at that point in history, the Christian church and Judaism seemed to split into two distinct religious camps. Many believe that the Jews could not accept the new Christian teachings and doctrine of a polytheistic god.
The self appointed leaders of the Christian faith succumbed to the teachings of Greek philosophers and pagan beliefs and rituals, turning their backs on Christ's authority and teachings and his ekklesia and embracing the embodiment of the whore of Babylon. And with Christ's Apostles hundreds of years gone from the scene, evil men and their harlot churches refuse to baptize in Jesus name only; instead, baptizing in the three person idolatress god of their creation.
The following shows some of the apostles writing that exposes certain false
doctrines taught by the harlot churches:
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the
name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy
The harlot churches use the titles of their 3 gods if they even baptize at all. They
ignore Matt 28:19 in which Jesus said to use a "name," and they just
"parrot" the command instead of obeying it.
Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his NAME
among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after
the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwels ALL the fulness of the Godhead bodily. (The harlot church doesn't believe that the fulness is in Jesus, they don't believe
that "you are complete in him", they teach the tradition of men from the 2nd
and 3rd century) *
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in HIM, which is the head of all principality and
power: Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name
under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. See also Acts 8:16, 10:48, 10:43, 19:5, Col 3:17

sources it states that baptism took place in the Name of Jesus Christ."

baptism was changed by the Catholic Church.
HASTINGS ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION, Vol. 2 pages 377-378-389, "The Christian
baptism was administered using the Name of Jesus. The use of the trinitarian formula of
any sort was not suggested in the early church history, baptism was always in the Name of
the Lord Jesus, until the time of Justin Martyr when the trinity formula was used."
Hastings also said in Vol. 2 Page 377, commenting on Acts 2:38, "NAME was an ancient
synonym for person. Payment was always made in the name of some person referring to
ownership. Therefore one being baptized in Jesus Name became his personal property."
"Ye are Christ's." I Cor. 3:23.
NEW INTERNATIONAL ENCYCLOPEDIA, Vol. 22 Page
477, "The term "trinity" was originated by Tertullain, Roman Catholic
TYNDALE NEW TESTAMENT COMMENTARIES: "... the true explanation why the early church
did not at once administer baptism in the threefold name is that the words of Mat 28:19
were not meant as a baptismal formula. [Jesus] was not giving instructions about the
actual words to be used in the service of baptism, but, as has already been suggested, was
indicating that the baptized person would by baptism pass into the possession of the
Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost."
THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION AND ETHICS, James Hastings, p.384, "there is no
evidence [in early church history] for the use of the triune name."
