Question by THEHATEDTRUTH: Was Isaac Newton an Arian Christian?
Some historians of secular academia have suggested he was. (didn’t believe in the trinity or divinity of Christ). But what real proof is there of this. Show me some if you know of any.
Newton: “Christ is called the righteous (1 Iohn 2.1 ) & by his righteousness we are saved (Rom. 3.25. & 5.18 1 Cor. 1.30) & except our righteousness exceed the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees we shall not enter into the kingdome of heaven. (Mat. 5.20.) Righteousness is the religion of the kingdom of heaven (2 Pet. 3. 13 Isa 60 21) & even the property of God himself” Newton says plainly, “Christ is called righteous, which is a property of God,
we obtain that righteousness through faith in Christ. “by his (Christ) righteousness we are saved”. This is a direct indication of his belief in Jesus Christ being the same as God!

Here’s my answer. I apologize for answering a question with a question.
If he were an Aryan, would that change your own beliefs in the slightest? Then again, if it turned out he WASN’T, would THAT change your beliefs any?
I rest my case.
