Sir Issac Newton : Biblical Prophecy or Blasphemous HereticDivya Rathod
“Don’t doubt the Creator because it is inconceivable that accidents alone could be the controller of this universe.”
- Sir Issac Newton
Every high school student remembers Sir Isaac Newton for his significant contribution in the
field of Physics but not many know about the man behind the science. Did you know that Sir
Isaac was an alchemist? Or that his obsession with the Bible and an attempt to predict
Armageddon? In recent years, many young biblical prophecy students have turned their attention
towards the unpublished articles by Sir Isaac Newton on various aspects of biblical prophecy.
These writings indicate that the theories propounded by this great scientist clearly indicate his
immense belief in the existence of a supreme power to guide all activities on earth. The quote
above clearly defines the same. Few of his remarkable theories are interpretations of the book of
Daniel, Book of Revelation and he also suggested that perhaps the end of the world might occur
in 2060 or 2034 or a few other possible dates.
On the contrary, many historians have a strong view about Sir Isaac to be heretic. But
there are rare instances where Sir Isaac has publicly declared his personal faith that an Orthodox
would have openly disapproved. He hid his faith so well that many people are still unravelling his
personal faith. The historian believes he was a sympathiser of Socinian theology that conflicts the
views of the orthodox Christian theology on Trinity and divinity of Christ and the philosophy of
salvation, and most certainly an anti-Trinitarian. Sir Isaac Newton was also a follower of the
occult meaning alchemy, witchcraft, divination and more. If we carefully examine this, it shows
that Newton was at the least a Blasphemous heretic if not an anti-Christ worshiper.
In spite of the immense faith in the almighty sir also had many theories that went against
the common belief of an Orthodox Christian clearly indicating that Sir Newton was a man of free
thoughts. He believed in God but at the same time had his take on the interpretation of the Bible
which certainly was not acceptable by an Orthodox. His treatises rejecting the doctrine of the
Trinity is a reliable evidence to prove this point. Sir Isaac was of an opinion that Trinitarianism
cannot be supported entirely by scriptural analysis and he also believed that it lacked logic, for
example bible has many events like the gift of healing and turning water into wine, but they do
not go against the logic but the theory of trinity indicating the concept of three in one, and one in
three certainly defy the logic. He researched further to prove this point and the discovery of lie
and corruption behind this theory for the personal motives of many politicians in that time fuelled
his distrust in the system of Catholicism.
The most impressing part of this great scientist is that he is a free thinker, everything that
he has an opinion about is investigated and researched and from what I found written about that
time free thinking was not that common.
