The schism started with Jesus' disciples
The problems with the notion of Trinity emerged already while Jesus lectured.
As the Great Gospel tells us when, once at table - wine had loosened their tongues and their spirits were high. Conversations and discussions became ever more spirited and different concepts about Jesus came into being. One could say that the first schism happened at this supper. Because everything that came up later within dozens of Christian churches - with every church having a different Jesus - happened that day.
Jesus Himself reports: "Some claimed that I am diectly the highest Godhead but others said: This is true but not directly but indirectly. Again others said I am actually just a son of David according to parentage and destined to be the Messiah of the kingdom of David and therefore provided with the miracle power of David and the wisdom of Salomo. Finally some said I am a first angel of the heavens walking the earth pro forma in the flesh with an heavenly aide-de-camp at my side". (GG06/229, 9-10;
Here they meant the archangel Raphael who was present at that scene. This short list shows us the main false notions of Christ: Jesus just true God without true manhood! The fact that Jehovah truely became man is dropped seeing only the true God! That, however, would be the Godhead before it became truely man, or else Jesus just a highest angel or as pure man respectively!
Jesus goes on: "Some, together with several of My apostles, declared Me to be the Son of the Most High. I certainly had the same attributes as My Father, but was a different person, and it could well be that the frequently mentioned Spirit of God was after all a third person who in certain matters had an independent say". (GG04/88,2)
Here we find the core of the mistake: two or even three godly personalities besides each other! The perfect wrong definition of trinity already at that early stage!
Jesus prayed, what does that mean?
When Jesus told His disciples to go and rest, He Himself, however, has to stay up and pray, there was amazement:
His disciples: "Strange! Now He goes away in order to pray and prepare Himself for tomorrow. Whom else can He invoke and to whom can He pray? Could it be that notwithstanding His unique profound knowledge He is not the Supreme Deity? He cannot possibly pray to Himself! And if He did, one would be justified in asking: What for? Strange!
Now Mathael, somewhat aroused, suddenly rises and says in a loud voice so that many can hear it: "How can you express an opinion here like the blind about colours! O for all you blind people as you are here, except the angel Raphael, and even you, His old disciples, who are also still very blind and, therefore, foolish!
Is He not here on earth, as we all, clothed in flesh and blood, out of which His soul, just like ours, has developed in order to fully unite with the eternal, primal divine Spirit?
Only the Spirit within Him is God, everything else is human, just as we are human. When He prays, it means in other words: He allows His human nature to be wholly permeated by God, His Eternal Primal Spirit, from Whom all other spirits originate in the same manner as the tiny reflection of the sun in a dewdrop originates from the real sun.
According to His Spirit He is the real sun, whereas we and all spirits are only living images of this eternal primal sun - God. Do you now understand what He means by saying that He prays?" (GGJ 3/121, 3 on)
