“Satanists in evening clothes”

Attacks on the Holy Trinity remind us of a quote from Anton LaVey (Levy), founder of the Church of Satan: “Unitarians are just Satanists in evening clothes.”

 

The Holy Trinity is revealed as early as the second verse of the Old Testament:

 … and the spirit of God moved over the waters.

Genesis 1:2

 

The Holy Trinity is also revealed in the New Testament:

 

And Jesus being baptized, forthwith came out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened to him: and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him.  And behold a voice from heaven, saying: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Matthew 3:16-17

 

Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Matthew 28:19

 

These explicit New Testament references to the Holy Trinity are foreshadowed in the Old Testament.

 

Some Old Testament verses allude to all Three Persons:

 

Behold my servant, I will uphold him: my elect, my soul delighteth in him: I have given my spirit upon him, he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

Isaias 42:1

 

Come ye near unto me, and hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning: from the time before it was done, I was there, and now the Lord God hath sent me, and his spirit.

Isaias 48:16

 

The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord hath anointed me: he hath sent me to preach to the meek, to heal the contrite of heart, and to preach a release to the captives, and deliverance to them that are shut up.

Isaias 61:1

 

Other Old Testament verses allude to the Son:

 

The Lord hath said to me: Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee.

Psalm 2:7 , also quoted in the New Testament in Hebrews 1:5, 5:5, and Acts 13:33

 

Who hath ascended up into heaven, and descended? who hath held the wind in his hands? who hath bound up the waters together as in a garment? who hath raised up all the borders of the earth? what is his name, and what is the name of his son, if thou knowest?

Proverbs 30:4

 

I beheld therefore in the vision of the night, and lo, one like the son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and he came even to the Ancient of days: and they presented him before him.

Daniel 7:13-14
