A charge against the Trinity

#1

Post by Christian2 » Sat Oct 17, 2020 7:00 am

I'm discussing Christianity with someone who said:

"Three separate persons as One God is an anthropomorphic polytheistic concept. Jesus Christ is depicted as a distinct separate Deity. Actually very similar to Hindu beliefs that the different Gods are aspects of the one Brahman."

I don't have the background to reply.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Christian2, you might look through the following to better explain the Trinity from a Biblical perspective:

It didn't help. He said he grew up Catholic. I gave up.

Sounds like JW influence.

Hopefully he learned enough as a Catholic, to understand the basics of the Trinity. As K said, he’s probably been influenced by Jehovah’s Witnesses.
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.
