72. What means the word "transdoctrinal" and why?

What means the word "transdoctrinal" and why?

An article in defense of brother Raymond Franz

Are those people who declare themselves transdoctrinal, "lukewarm" unwilling to engage in controversies, but sit on the sidelines and watch from afar and disinterest in controversy, as it may seem at first look? No, absolutely not. The books and correspondence of brother Raymond Franz prove just the opposite.

Transdoctrinal literally and succinctly would mean "over (trans) doctrines (doctrine)."

But what is a doctrine?
"Doctrine, (from the Latin doctrine), means "an amount of teachings "or" instructions", taught principles or positions, as the body of teachings in the field of knowledge or belief systems. Corresponding Greek word is the etymology of the word catechism.

And now we get to the explanation of "transdoctrinal = over doctrine".

Consider two opposing doctrines, such as Trinitarianism and Antitrinitarianism.
The first doctrine, Trinitarianism, exhibits a faith based in a single God (numerically speaking), but it is made "three-unic" God, consisting of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The second doctrine, Antitrinitarianism, says just that the Father is God.

The problem would be simple at first sight and this controversy may not have to sit as "outsiders" should be or pro or con.
And yet the problem is not as simple as, because Antitrinitarians are also divided into several opposing factions, they say Antitrinitarian opponents were split into more than ten opposing factions. Some leaders of Antitrinitarians, claimed that Jesus, during his heavenly pre-existence was only uniquely-born Son of God, called the Archangel Michael, but other Antitrinitarian leaders - of Gnostic Guidance - claiming that God the Father had two sons, aged at Satanel being called, and the youngest Michael (Christ). Others say that Jesus Christ don't have a heavenly pre-existence, but was the natural son of Joseph. Other Antitrinitarians claimed that the Holy Spirit was created by Jesus and is a person (heavenly person, angel), others fought it. Other Antitrinitarians claimed that Jesus Christ was Christ (Messiah) of second rank, followed him to come to a higher rank than him.

Here's why, simply identifies you as just Antitrinitarian you could make someone to miscalculate, believing that argue that some concepts, you actually not only sustain them but have not even heard of some of them.

On the other hand, if you are simply arguing that you are simply Antitrinitarian, you could make some people actually believe that deny some concepts with which you agree, and those who support the doctrine of the Trinity (ex. pre-existence of Jesus, his birth from the Father, as the Unique Son (monogenes).

But to call oneself "transdoctrinal" gives you an advantage (benefit rider) at the detail your beliefs, but obviously depends on you if you take advantage of this benefit in your dialogues.

Of course the word "transdoctrinal" can be interpreted differently. There is a problem. Each is entitled to his own definition.
All the best!
