    Trinitarianism would not be debated if there was no problems with it. Do you prefer the Catholic insertions to the original scriptures?

    But Rome had a trinity: Jupiter, Mars, Venus.
    Wayward Israel had a trinity: Baal, Tammuz, Ashoreth.
    Egypt had a trinity: Osiris, Horus, Isis.
    Greece had a trinity: Zeus, Apollo, Athena.
    India had a trinity: Brahama, Visnu, Sheva.
    Babylon had a trinity: Nimrod, Tammuz, Semiramis (pictured as mother and child).
    Catholicism has a trinity: Father, Son, Holy Spirit (symbolized as a dove).

    The plain reading of scripture overwhelmingly teaches a Unitarian view of God with the exception of two to three dozen passages mentioned below, so people that believes in the Trinity should have any problem with Bible literalists holding a Unitarian view.

    Scripture supports belief in a Binitarian view of both Jesus and the Father being God in about two dozen or so passages found in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, though the interpretation of those passages have been debated for 1700 years.

    Scripture supports the belief in a Trinitarian view of the Holy Spirit, Jesus, and the Father all being God in half a dozen additional passages to the ones used to support the Binitarian view, though the interpretation of those passages have also been debated for 1700 years.

    Scripture does not teach belief in the Trinity.

    You are a liar.
    If you call me a liar for calling you a non-trinitarian that may be a good thing. From your posts you seem to be Unitarian.

    You are trying to see if a person is either a Trinitarian or a Unitarian so you can accept them or reject them.

    I am searching the scriptures to see whether the scriptures teach what the churches say it teaches to see whether a doctrine should be accepted or rejected.

    Can you see the difference?

    I don't reject people because of their beliefs. Knowing their beliefs helps me to see if I can show them the truth. I don't reject people but God will. And yes I understand why you are searching.

    Where are you finding your truth?
    I am finding my truth in scriptures.

    You are fortunate that He will not reject you because you are a Trinitarian, a Binitarian, or a Unitarian.
    God has other standards that you must fail to meet before you will be rejected.

    I asked if you knew the difference, not the reason I search the scriptures.

    As for the reason to search the scriptures, that is also found in the Bible.

    John 5:39
    39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.



    Acts 17:10-11
    10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
    11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

    Is there really a difference? Unitarians claim there is one God and trinitarians claim there is one God.

    What difference does it make if the one God is one person or three persons? Neither is true according to NT scripture.

    Matthew 28:18-20
    18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

    From what I read, it is and taught by Jesus.


    .....O LORD my God, in You I put my trust. Psalm 7:1
    .....To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    Psalm 25:1

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia
