 Ridiculous Corrections of the KJV By Modern Apostates

   # 39 The NKJV & the Triquetra

The following article is from a series (1) by Dr. John Hinton, Bible Restoration Ministry.

An ancient symbol appears on the covers or cover pages of virtually all New King James Version Bibles, which is called the triquetra. The liner of the NKJV explains the meaning of the triquetra thus:

"Triquetra (from a Latin word meaning "three-cornered") is an ancient symbol for the Trinity. It comprises three interwoven arcs, distinct yet equal and inseparable, symbolizing that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three distinct yet equal Persons and indivisibly One God."

Is this what it really means?

The triquetra that adorns this version tells us all we need to know about the NKJV, and it is enough by itself to tell all but the most spiritually dead among Christians that it is to be shunned like the plague. Let us take a look at some of the folks that use the same symbol and see if it really is a Christian symbol of the trinity as the Catholic owned Thomas Nelson company says that it is. Before starting it should be pointed out that the NKJVís footnote for 1 John 5:7 lies to its readers by telling them that only a few very late manuscripts include this verse. Isnít it strange that the version with an alleged symbol of the trinity would attack the trinity within its text (annotated versions). The evidence that follows will make it clear that it is only the Christian trinity
that is being attacked. The trinity that is represented by the triquetra is another one entirely.

Gryphon's Moon, a designer of pagan jewelry, describes the meaning of the triquetra thus: "The number three was significant to the early Celts, who used it to represent the three-fold nature of the Goddess (Maiden, Mother, and Crone), or the Christian
Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Ghost)." This company also sells jewelry with dragons, moon goddesses and many other pagan images and symbols. Is this the type
of symbol that Christians should be displaying? One that can be either pagan or Christian, depending on your tastes!

Goodfibes offers a triquetra that they describe in a similar manner:

 "A protective amulet and symbol of the Three-Part Goddess (Maiden, Mother, Crone) and later, a symbol of the Christian Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Ghost)."

A related symbol that uses a threefold pattern based on human legs goes under the name Triquetra or Trinacria. Its origins are quite ancient and it is believed to be a representation of Baal in his threefold form of god of spring, summer and winter.
The legs are believed to be representations of phases of the moon. It was used in Phoenicia, later in Greece, and later yet in Sicily where it is still used to this day as a charm. I will leave it to other researchers to prove or disprove its relationship with
our triquetra, but the similarity appears to be more than just superficial. Could our more modern triquetra be a more abstract version of this symbol of Baal worship?

Triquetra coins are offered by a company called Magickware that specializes in a wide variety of occult merchandise. The message on the coin reads: "Do as you will, an it harm none" (sic.) This is a common slogan of witches. Like virtually all companies that sell triquetras, this one also sells pentagrams. Another company describes the triquetra thus: "A triquetra is an ancient protective Triple Goddess symbol. The three yonic vesicas are spaced evenly and often a circle is added. Some versions are interlaced as in this one, some are not." One particularly perverted jewelry manufacturer specializes in huge variety of New Age, pagan, Satanic and Egyptian symbols, as well as symbols from many of the world's religions. The Triquetra is one of their most popular designs. They advertise them side by side with a non-abstract 666 design pendant. They seem to know that they are connected, why don't modern church-goers?  Yet another company, which is geared toward a sodomite and lesbian clientele, describes their specially designed triquetra variations as trisexual symbols. Their meaning is not hard to figure out by studying them. They mix the male and female symbols into the design. Since Pentagrams are almost always sold side by side with triquetras, as they are from the same ultimate source, will Thomas Nelson put a pentagram on one of their future Bible versions a few years down the line? Do not mistake that question as being sarcastic - I truly would not be surprised.


The television program "Charmed" has a slogan that is linked to the triquetra:

 "The power of three will set you free."

Are modern Christians going to tell us that refers to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit? The symbol is quite prominent on the show and appears on the ouija board and the planchette (handheld part) of the board that is used on the show, as well as on the cover and title page of the Book of Shadows, which is a book of witchcraft spells. The fans of this shockingly wicked show are particularly fond of the triquetra. The "Charmed Writers' Guild" has a website that expresses this fondness well. Perhaps they are also big NKJV fans.

Another company offers pirage boards, which they describe as a variation on the ouija board. The designer states that:

"The Triquetra represents the Holy Trinity (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) with Christians or the threefold nature of the Goddess (as
virgin, mother and crone) with Pagans and Wiccans. One of its objectives, according to myth, is to protect the user from evil influence when using channeling boards."

If we are to believe that this symbol can be either Christian or pagan, what kind of Christian would wear it when it causes so much confusion? Or should we assume that such Christians see no problem with the dichotomy?  Dawnstorm sells two different ouija boards that incorporate the triquetra. The first also displays pentagrams and the Satanic yin and yang symbol, which suggests that good and evil are just two sides of the same coin. The second design is one that is inspired by the Charmed television show.

Terry Watkins discovered a triquetra design on a tarot card, which was designed by Aleister Crowley himself. I do not know how many tarot cards use this symbol, and I am not going to buy any to look for it, but I had no trouble finding a number of tarot card boxes that have it displayed on their lids. The Witches Shop carries a tarot card box that is adorned with a triquetra that they say "symbolizes the three faces of the Goddess, balance of Mind, Body and Spirit, and other Divine Trinities. The circle
signifies the ever-turning cycle of life, death & rebirth." The also offer a yin and yang symbol tarot card box.

A revolting little site on the internet entitled "Morticia's Morgue Occult Emporium" offers items sorted by type, which include Witchcraft & Pagan, Gothic & Vampire, Pentacles & Pentagrams, Goddess & Feminist, Egyptian, and of course, a whole section devoted to triquetras. In addition to jewelry, they also offer a tarot box card adorned with a triquetra.

There are many companies that offer triquetra chalices. Like most, Fairmoon sells Wiccan Chalices with triquetras or with pentagrams. Since they are a matching set, both would go together well. However, the modern Christian might want to be a little less conspicuous and stick to the triquetra. Just think, this modern Christian can use his chalice in a communion ritual, and if he knows any practicing witches he can lend them the same chalice for drinking blood at a black mass. Talk about ecumenism, we truly have entered a brave new world!

Other companies that sell triquetras include Triple Goddess, Goddess Flight, Pagan Gardens, Aneski, Strega, Rbuehl, Wyccad Myste, For Your Witchy Desires,
Harness the Power of the Ancients, Spirit,, Witch On Line Auctions, Coffin Full of Crows, Wild Wisdom, Capricorn's Lair, WiccaWorks, Heavenly Alchemy, Pagan Definitions and Modern Christians (2) need not worry; I am sure that none of these companies would discriminate and that they would be more than happy to supply churches with whatever Satanic paraphernalia that they have in stock.

(2) "Modern Christian" refers to Christians of the falling away kind. The saints of God must purpose to walk in the old paths:

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. (Jer. 6:16)
