Hello,
My name is Harry. I am a member of the New Church (Swedenborgian). The church's doctrine is base on the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.

Emanuel Swedenborg.
1688  Born in Stockholm, Sweden, on January 29.
 
1699-1709  Attended Uppsala University.  

1710-1715  First journey abroad, to England and the Continent.
 
1716  First publications by Swedenborg in the magazine Daedalus.
 
1716  Appointed Assessor in the Royal College of Mines.
 
1718  Ennoblement of Swedberg family with name changed to Swedenborg. Assumption by Swedenborg of seat in House of Nobles of Swedish Diet.
 
1720  Publication of Swedenborg's first book, a philosophic work titled Principles of Chemistry.  

1729-1734  Writing and publication of his most important philosophical works in three volumes, titled Philosophical and Mineralogical Works.

 
1735-1744  Period of intensive study, writing, and publication on the nature of human existence, particularly as regards the concept of the soul.
 
1743-1744  First transcendent experiences, visions or dreams, in Holland and England.
 
1745  "Call" to become a revelator, London, England.
 
1747  Resignation from the Swedish Board of Mines to allow time for theological writing.  

1747-1758  Writing and publication of the twelve-volume Arcana Coelestia, Swedenborg's first major theological work.
 
1759-1761  Incidents of the Stockholm fire, the Dutch ambassador's receipt, and the Queen's secret illustrating Swedenborg's clairvoyance.  

1769-1771  Heresy trial at Gothenburg, Sweden, involving state church accusations against Swedenborg's theology.
 
1771-1772  Publication of the two-volume True Christian Religion in Amsterdam, Holland, his last major theological work.
 
1772  Death in London, England, at age 84, on March 29.

Swedenborg had gone as far as he could go in attempting to explain the great questions of human existence solely through the faith into which he was born and which was reinforced by his own reasoning powers.

The results of his search left him dissatisfied, but a new phase of his life opened and the remaining years of his career must be viewed in a different perspective.

During 1744 and 1745 he had a number of dreams and visions which moved him profoundly.

He sometimes feared and sometimes felt exhilarated by what he experienced.

These were years of disquiet which he could not explain satisfactorily and, typically, he kept silent about them to others, although his Journal of Dreams and Journal of Travel written during this period recorded his experiences and emotions. He renewed his study of the Bible and began to write a book entitled Worship and Love of God.

Then in April of 1745 he underwent a penetrating experience. In London, while dining alone at an inn where he often went, Swedenborg noted that the room seemed to grow dark.

 He then saw a vision, and an apparition spoke to him. When the room cleared again Swedenborg went home to his apartment, considerably stirred by his experience.

During that night he again saw the vision. A spirit reappeared and spoke with him regarding the need for a human person to serve as the means by which God would further reveal himself to men in somewhat the manner of the biblical visions of the Old Testament."

Swedenborg came to believe that God had called him to bring a new revelation to the world, and from 1745 until his death twenty-seven years later he spent the bulk of his time adding theological works to his already lengthy scientific and philosophical writings.

From myself: A spirit reappeared and spoke with him regarding the need for a human person to serve as the means by which God would further reveal himself to men in somewhat the manner of the biblical visions of the Old Testament." This means that the Old Testament will be better understood. Once the OT is understood, than people will understand God fully. The Catholic Church saids the trinity was before creation, and that the OT speak of Mary in Genesis. This is all false. But this not the place for discussion on the truth about God.

What did Swedenborg smoke  Grin

Swedenborg didn't smoke anything. The Holy Scripture was made false by man in the year 325 AD when the members of that Council invented a doctrine of three Divine persons from eternity. This was done because they can't explain how Our Lord Jesus Christ was God.

This crime was committed by Arius and his followers. Consequently a Council was summoned by Constantine the Great to meet at Nicaea, a city of Bithynia*; and its members, in order to expel the damaging heresy of Arius, invented, concluded and laid down the doctrine that the three Divine persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, existed from eternity, each of whom had a personality, and came into and continued in existence by Himself and in Himself. They also held a false idea that the second person, the Son, came down and took upon Himself human form and carried out the redemption, and by this means His Human has divinity by hypostatic union, so that by this union He has close kinship with God the Father.

 This was the beginning from which there spread over the earth heaps of unspeakable heresies about God and the person of Christ.

Antichrist then began to rear his head, and split God into three, and the Lord the Saviour into two, thus destroying the Temple the Lord had built by means of His Apostles.

This went so far that every stone was pried loose, until not one was left upon another, as predicted by His words (Matt. 24:2).

Here 'Temple' does not mean just the Temple in Jerusalem, but also the church; and the whole of that chapter deals with its consummation or end.
 
 But could anything else have been expected of that Council, or those which followed it, seeing that they likewise divided the Divinity into three parts, and put the incarnate God on their footstool beneath them?

 For they cut off the church's head from its body by climbing up another way, that is, by by-passing the Lord and crossing over to God the Father, as if He were another God, simply keeping on their tongues the phrase 'Christ's merit,' so that He should pity them for its sake.

 Thus, they thought, justification would flow directly into them, together with all that accompanies it, forgiveness of sins, renewal, sanctification, regeneration and salvation, and all this without any intervention on the person's part.

Swedenborg was sooooooooooo wrong!

The Father is not the same person as the Son; the Son is not the same person as the Holy Spirit; and the Holy Spirit is not the same person as Father.  They are not three gods and not three beings.  They are three distinct persons; yet, they are all the one God.  Each has a will, can speak, can love, etc., and these are demonstrations of personhood.  They are in absolute perfect harmony consisting of one substance. They are coeternal, coequal, and copowerful. If any one of the three were removed, there would be no God.

Correct! In every sense! Man's corrupted brain can't comprehend such wonders - right now, we can barely grasp only what He has revealed to us through scripture; but someday we will be raised incorruptible...
