Triune, not difficult to grasp.
Apparently it is for some.
Trinity as a doctrine was introduced in the third century. This is a historic fact. There is neither Biblical nor scholarly evidence that it was at all considered by the first century Christians, and certainly wasn't a doctrine taught by the apostles who knew Jesus.
Bible verses used by those who promote Trinity do not stand up to close scrutiny when they are placed in their total context. John 1:1 is probably the most cited, but as I pointed out, does not stand up to simple logic. There are two possible interpretations of the use of θεὸς in the text: A: intended to mean God=The Word (Jesus) or B: The Word is being described as being Godlike / Divine in nature, but a separate being. Since both cannot be true, what do other scriptures indicate. As I pointed out, they indicate God and Jesus are separate. Hence the "B" interpretation is the one that should be accepted.
If God and Jesus are separate, there is no "Triune God". There is one God, Jehovah the Father. Jesus is his Son, but not co-equal. Exalted in status, absolutely, but not co-equal.
"Keep this mental attitude in you that was also in Christ Jesus, who, although he was existing in God’s form, gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God"
But don't take my word for it. I encourage everyone who has a genuine interest to read the Bible and decide for themselves what is logical and true. Happy to continue the conversation with anyone interested.
