Please do not think me rude or trite on this matter but I would like to simply skip the scripture Judo and ask a simple question: Without any scripture — why do you believe that Jesus cannot be God and that the Trinity is not so?
My issues with the trinity have absolutely zero to do with personal taste, so I can't actually answer that question.What is it about the Trinity you find distasteful? In Your own words — no scripture Judo, please.
Thank you for your answer. I apologize for taking 24 hours to respond to you. I do take a day off and rest but that would make another topic.
You stated clearly that why you cannot believe in the Trinity is “Because it is a logical contradiction.” Now we have some common ground in which to build upon. First, I could never argue with you in order to change your views nor could you mine. All I ask is to ponder questions posed and reach your own conclusions, as I ponder yours.
Would it come as I shock to you that I learned of the concept of the trinity from a professed atheist? During my college days spent at the local University listening to a Biology Professor professing that he did not believe in God, He stated, “All living things have three distinct parts, and each individual part has multi-faceted attributes and functions. The best way to study living organisms is to separate them into their three distinct parts to discover what makes them one entity.”
He went on to claim that this was not religion but how life is. Through the course of his lectures, text book studies, autopsies of animal and plant matter, I literally saw that he was correct: All life has three distinct separate parts that make a living entity one, alive and functioning properly. I ask you to check into this matter yourself.
It is almost as if a divine entity had left a finger print for us to see but since it is a oblivious as the nose on one's face, we over look it. Thus, only giving notice as we ponder the reflection we see in the mirror of ourselves. I wonder why this finger print was stamped into all living matter?
I sliced opened a lowly tomato yesterday for lunch and saw the three parts — The body of the tomato, the juice, and the seeds. This caused me to recall that Biology professor's lectures and how he went on to explain that the seeds carry on the tri-nature by being triune themselves. Then we dissected seeds and saw the wonder of this.
Therefore your answer could be termed a "logical contradiction" in and of itself since all living creation does have three parts so why not God?
