Summary

"...we, who by the grace of God possess an insight into both the times and the occasions of the Sacred Writings, especially we who are followers of the Paraclete, not of human teachers, do indeed definitively declare that Two Beings are God, the Father and the Son, and, with the addition of the Holy Spirit, even Three...." (Tertullian, Against Praxeus, Chapter 13)

The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, the official organization of the Jehovah's Witnesses, claim in their booklet "Should You Believe in the Trinity?" that the doctrine of the Trinity was unknown in Christianity for several centuries after biblical times, and they have the testimony of several early Church Fathers -- Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Hippolytus, and Origen -- to prove it...or do they?

Using more than 150 quotes from the same Church Fathers cited by the Jehovah's Witnesses, Mike Partyka demolishes the Watchtower's false claim upon the early Church Fathers and proves that the doctrine of the Trinity was not only believed but even defended by these early heroes of the Christian faith.
