But please try to remember that we are all sinners and fall short of the Glory of God. None of us are immune from this. We all just show it in different ways.
I respect your beliefs even if I personally don't agree. That goes for all of us here.
But one of many issues with the trinity is it's roots. RJH denies a connection at all most of the time with it's pagan counterparts but by every historian that is not swayed to this doctrine has proven it's origin. This can be seen by anyone that is willing to do the research.
The Bible makes it very clear in it's history that this nation of Babylon is the seat of all false and even demonic religous beliefs, which many are still alive and well today.
Just because the descriptions and pictures and opinions have been changed and altered, it's still the same trinity that the Babylonians concieved. A 3 in 1 being.
Why wouldn't it be altered somewhat to be accepted by religions today? If it were still in the original package it was in from the Baylonians it probably wouldn't fly today.
Plus the explination that it really can't be explained is the perfect excuse to pass it off as something we just have to accept and have faith in.
So don't take this personal as it's not. It's the doctrine that is the problem. It's just not in the Bible and none of God's people in the Bible ever believed in such a concept.
