Defenders of the Faith

The above four British men, all friends, shared a passion for defending (apologeomai) the Word of Yahweh, from the traditions and doctrines of men, as have all the prophets and apostles of Yahweh. By taking their stand, they all suffered for their convictions, being called heretics, being mocked, being ridiculed, by the so-called, Christian Church. William Tyndale (1494–1536) and Martin Luther (1483–1546) chose the same rode and endured the same mocking and ridicule, but in a greater degree; William Tyndale was murdered by those who called him, brother, and Martin Luther would have been if he was not rescued.  The above four men stood in agreement that, as Isaac Newton wrote, they "...beleive in one God, the ffather almighty, maker of heaven & earth, & of all things visible & invisible, & in one Lord Iesus Christ the Son of God." They would not transgress the first commandment, which states, "I, am Yahweh thy Elohim,—who have brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of servants:—Thou shalt not have other gods, besides me" (Ex. 20:2-3). The doctrine of the Trinity, the doctrine of, 'God the Father,' 'God the Son' and 'God the Holy Spirit,' they agreed, was not in the Word of Yahweh but was the fabrication of men.

John Locke was an English philosopher and physician. His writings had a profound influence on the writers of the United States Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. Isaac Newton was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher and alchemist, regarded by many as the greatest figure in the history of science. William Whiston was an English theologian, historian, and mathematician, a leading figure in the popularisation of the ideas of Isaac Newton. He is now probably best known for his translation of the Antiquities of the Jews and other works by Josephus. Samuel Clarke was an English philosopher and Anglican clergyman. He is considered the major British figure in philosophy between John Locke and George Berkeley. The majority of Christians have no idea that these men were profound believers and worshippers of Yahweh. Why? In my opinion, I believe the Christian Church has suppressed their works because they rejected the doctrine of the Trinity. All of them have written notable Christian works, which have been placed below. Were they, like Christ, called blasphemers? Yes! They were also called Arians and Socinians etc. etc., as you also will be called, which is very predictable.  Yahoshua said in John 16:2, "Excommunicants from the synagogue, will they make you; Nay! there cometh an hour, that, every one who killeth you, shall think to be rendering, divine service, unto God!" During this period of time, the profession in the Trinity is similar to receiving the mark of the beast, if you do not do so, " one should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, the name of the beast." (Rev. 13:17),   

The Apostle Paul was also a defender (apologeomai) of the faith. He stated in Philippians 1:7,  "According as it is right in me to have this regard in behalf of you all,—because ye have had me in your hearts, both in my bonds and in the defence [apologia] and confirmation of the glad-message, all of you being, joint partakers of my favour." In 2 Timothy 4:16-17 he stated, "In my first defence [apologia], no man, came in to help me, but, all, forsook me,—unto them, may it not be reckoned!—But, the Lord, stood by me, and empowered me, in order that, through me, the proclamation, might be fully made, and, all the nations, might hear; and I was delivered out of the mouth of a lion." In the same epistle he stated, "Thou knowest this—that all they who are in Asia have turned away from me...For there will be a season—when, the healthful teaching, they will not endure, but, according to their own covetings, will, unto themselves, heap up teachers, because they have an itching ear, And, from the truth, indeed, their ear, will they turn away, while, unto stories, they will turn themselves aside. But, thou,—be sober in all things, suffer hardship, do, the work, of an evangelist, thy ministry, completely fulfill; For, I, already, am being poured out as a drink-offering, and, the season of my release, is at hand,—The noble contest, have I contested, the race, have I finished, the faith, have I kept:" (2 Ti. 1:15; 4:3-7). The above men can also state, 'amen,' to what Paul spoke to Timothy. They are our mentors, who did not crumble at the persecutions of men, which will occur when one stands upon the Word of Yahweh.

I do not agree with all their writings but search the Scriptures,—whether these things could be so (Acts 17:11). Be encouraged and enriched by the writings of the Defenders of the Faith!  (For Isaac Newton's articles, click his tab on the main menu.)

P.S. Thomas Emlyn  (1663–1741), a Scottish pastor who was imprisoned for his refusal to break the first commandment by confessing the Trinity, wrote of book, which is also included below, titled, "An Humble Inquiry into the Scripture Account of Jesus Christ." He became friends with the above fraternity.
