• If so, you are wrong. You are believing a Catholic Dogma / Lie. 1 John5 v 7 does NOT mention the word trinity. The Greek word for three is NOT 'tria' it is in Fact 'treis'. You are using a Catholic so-called Bible. 'tria' is Latin. Trinity is actually a Catholic invention. see C.C.C. 251 Please also see the links below. The articles on both are v.v.short. I hope this helps. The word trinity is not in the OT either. It's a Roman Catholic invention, and its assertion in CCC.251 is fallacious & deceitful. . You cannot base a so-called doctrine on a word that does not exist in Scripture. Please do not quote the NIV or any other Catholic Bible at me. Catholicism has never been Christian. KJV ONLY PLEASE.
  • Is that you Butterflies67? Talk about sock-puppet accounts. Your grammar and the way of quoting Bible verses is identical: Now this deserves a *Facepalm.* This is why I'm great!
  • What scripture? I’m Jewish. We have a different way of knowing god. The Christians have theirs. As do the Muslims. I’m a henotheist as well. All of them could be right.
  • To answer your question for the sake of arguing, as you are looking for a fight by your rant, I believe in the Trinity, since there are many scriptures that prove Jesus and the Holy Spirit are God. To go to 1 John 5:7 and see how the Trinity forms, Jesus is the "express image" of the Father, (Hebrews 1:3), while the Holy Spirit is called God. (Acts chapter 5)

      No, I don't agree with you. Jesus said that Jehovah God was greater than he was. (John 14 v 28) So this indicates they weren't equal. The belief in triads of gods was prominent in Assyrian worship. The chief triad was formed of Anu, representing heaven; Bel, representing the region inhabited by man, animals, and birds; and Ea, representing the terrestrial and subterranean waters. A second triad was composed of Sin, the moon-god; Shamash, the sun-god; and Ramman, the god of storm, although his place was often filled by Ishtar, queen of the stars. Triads of deities were also prominent in the Babylonian religion. One of these, made up of two gods and a goddess, was Sin (the moon-god), Shamash (the sun-god), and Ishtar; these were said to be the rulers of the zodiac. The late Anglican bishop John Robinson was a controversial figure in the Anglican Church. He said that in the New Testament nowhere was it written that "Jesus was God". The Catholic Encyclopedia comments: “In Scripture, there is as yet no single term by which the Three Divine Persons are denoted together. The word ????? [tri?as] (of which the Latin Trinitas is a translation) is first found in Theophilus of Antioch about A. D. 180. As for your argument 1 John 5 v 7 The apostle John wrote: “This is he that came by means of water and blood, Jesus Christ . . . For there are three witness bearers, the spirit, and the water and the blood, and the three are in agreement.” (1Jo 5:5-8) When Jesus came “into the world,” that is, when he began his ministerial and sacrificial course as God’s Messiah, he came to John the Baptizer to be immersed in water (not in repentance for sins, but in the presentation of himself to God, to carry out God’s will for him). (Heb 10:5-7) After this, God’s spirit came down upon him, a testimony that he was God’s Son and the Messiah. (Lu 3:21, 22) It is the water of his baptism that is in harmony with the blood of his sacrifice and with God’s spirit in unanimously testifying to this great Messianic truth. In 1516, Erasmus published his first edition of the New Testament in Greek?—the first printed copy of the Christian Greek Scriptures ever to be released. One of the differences was at 1 John 5:7. To support the unscriptural teaching of the Trinity, some spurious words known as the comma Johanneum had been added to the Vulgate. They read: “In heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” However, Erasmus excluded those words from his first two editions of the New Testament because none of the Greek manuscripts he consulted contained them. He was later pressured by the church to include them in his third edition.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Quote: "No, I don't agree with you. Jesus said that Jehovah God was greater than he was. (John 14 v 28)" In what ways is the Father greater??? Cause anything the Father does the Son does likewise. John 5:19 "Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He seeth the Father do: for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." A perfect manifestation with God in the human flesh. Doesn't it take a God to do likewise as a God?????????????? Definition of likewise "1: in like manner : SIMILARLY go and do likewise"

      Quote: ".The word ????? [tri?as] (of which the Latin Trinitas is a translation) is first found in Theophilus of Antioch about A. D. 180." Trias in Greek means three, especially of three closely related persons or things. You have ignored that Jesus is the express image of the Father in Hebrews 1:3, along with the Holy Spirit being called God in Acts chapter 5. You can't tell me the passages I added are not from the Bible. *Facepalm*
  • Oops, I answered this question twice already.
  • No mention of a Trinity in the Bible. The New Catholic Encyclopedia says: The doctrine of the Holy Trinity is not taught in the Old Testament. The Blessed Trinity says: The dogma of the Blessed Trinity is a mystery It cannot be proved by reason . It cannot even be proved to be possible. The impression could arise that the Trinitarian dogma is in the last analysis a late 4th-century invention. In a sense, this is true. The formulation one God in three Persons’ was not solidly established, certainly not fully assimilated into Christian life and its profession of faith, prior to the end of the 4th century. New Catholic Encyclopedia If they say the trinity is not in the Bible, then why do they along with the other christian religions that teach it.
  • Rather: the doctrine of trinity is logically deduced from Scripture. It is derived from Scripture. It is NOT explicitly taught in Scripture.
  • Sure, every time the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit is named, that is the Trinity
  • I don't believe in God as a three-headed changeling God that changes forms whenever he feels like it I believe in a god that consists of a family unit just like we have here on Earth. The head of the household is the man there's the wife there is a child. In the godhood there is God the Father who is the equivalent of the head of the family the husband the holy spirit is the equivalent of God's wife the mother of creation the firstborn child is Jesus Christ.
  • Please allow me to use precise wording. *A* The Bible does not explicitly teach the doctrine of trinity. *B* The doctrine of trinity is logically deduced from what the Bible DOES teach.
