Note (163.) to "History of the 'Christian' Trinity - HIST)"

163. This is a very common tactic among trinitarian apologists. For example, Walter Martin in his popular The Kingdom of the Cults, 1985 ed., p. 67, implies that those who don’t believe in Jesus’ deity are “non-intellectuals”. And on p. 71 he derides those who present evidence against Jesus’ “deity” as “masquerading as Biblical authorities.” And the booklet published by Seventh-day Adventists, God’s Channel of Truth—Is it the Watchtower?, 1967, pp. 101,102, derides either the scholarship or the honesty (or both) of anti-trinitarian scholars.

Truth cannot be measured by the reputation of the man. Truth can be searched out and displayed by any man. If the matter is properly examined and presented, the facts will speak for themselves. Jehovah’s Witnesses have done this as well as those with great worldly reputations and deserve to be heard on the basis of their results in Bible scholarship. However, if worldly reputation is a necessary requirement before some will listen, see notes [164] and [165].
