|TRIADS OF PAUL THE APOSTLE From The Ancient British Language of The Druids|
|There are six years of St. Paul's life to be accounted for, between his liberation from his first imprisonment and his martyrdom at Aquae Salviae on the Ostian Road, near Rome. The greater part of this period was certainly spent in Britain, in Siluria, or Cambria, beyond the bounds of the Roman empire. It's most certainly why the Greek and Latin writers were silent during that time. Has any portion of his doctrine or teaching in Britain come down to us? Such writings would be in a British form, and most likely in the triadic form in which the Druids, (the religious teachers of that time) of Britain, delivered their teaching. We do find in the ancient British language certain triads which have always been known as, "The Triads of Paul the Apostle."|
There are three sorts of men:
The man of God, who renders good for evil.
The man of men, who renders good for good and evil for evil.
The man of the devil, who renders evil for good. Three kinds of men are the delights of God:
The lovers of peace.
The lovers of mercy. There are three marks of the children of God:
A pure conscience.
Patient suffering of injuries. There are three chief duties demanded by God:
Justice to every man.
Humility. In three places will be found the most of God:
Where He is mostly sought.
Where He is mostly loved.
Where there is least of self. There are three things following faith in God:
A conscience at peace.
Union with heaven.
What is necessary for life. Three ways a Christian punishes an enemy:
By forgiving him.
By not divulging his wickedness.
By doing him all the good in his power. The three chief considerations of a Christian:
Lest he should displease God.
Lest he should be a stumbling-block to man.
Lest his love to all that is good should wax cold. The three luxuries of a Christian feast:
What God has prepared.
What can be obtained with justice to all.
What love to all may venture to use. Three persons have the claims and privileges of brothers and sisters:
The preservation of the Triads of Paul the Apostle is due to the Cor of Ilid, of which Ilid, the "man of Israel",
was chief architect and chief priest.
In Merton College, Oxford, there are ancient MS., which purports to contain a series of letters between St. Paul and Seneca. In them are several allusions to St. Paul's residence in Siluria, known as the Paulian MS.
