The following question was posed:
IF God reveals Himself as Trinitarian through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, and you reject that revelation because you insist that that revelation is illogical according to your small limited brain, is this logical or wise?
To set the “Trinity” record straight:
1. There is one true God (virtually incontrovertible biblical claim)
2. God is our Father (language consistently used in scripture)
3. Jesus is God (theological inference made by ignoring the fact that Jesus being said to act on God’s behalf does not logically equate him with God)
4. Spirit is God (another theological inference, even though in the bible it actually says “God is spirit”)
5. Doctrine of Trinity (One God in three God-Personas)
Trinitarians believe in three God-Personas. No legitimate Trinitarian would deny that (unless they want to play more language games). But they also claim to believe in one God comprising the three God-Personas. No sane Trinitarian would deny this either (no language games, please).
And yet, Trinitarians obstinately assert that each individual God-Persona is also “God” in his own right. Now we have a problem of what the word “God” even refers to. Because if each God-persona is “God” IN HIS OWN RIGHT, i.e. ALL BY HIMSELF, then if we logically add up the three God-personas, then 1 TIMES 3 EQUALS 3.
To justify their own illogical doctrine, they insist that it is God’s revelation. But the truth is that they are doing this simply to protect their own “sub-doctrines” that Jesus is God (#3) and Spirit is God (#4).
In my view, Trinitarians are free to play their word games. I don’t really care.
What I do care about though, is biblical interpretation. Statements #3 and #4 are in fact theological inferences that MANY theologians (though outnumbered by the Trinitarians) have explicitly stated to be false. In other words, there are many Christian theologians who understand that #3 and #4 are theological inferences that they are themselves unable to make (i.e. logically not possible).
I challenge anyone to claim that #3 and #4 are direct “revelations” revealed to us without our use of reason. Read the entire bible, and see if you can honestly tell me that the bible incontrovertibly makes the claims of #3 and #4.
Show me that you get #3 and #4 from the bible without using reason, i.e. WITHOUT USING YOUR SMALL BRAIN, and I will forever hold my peace. Or better yet, try reading or listening to anything, and show me that you can get meaning out of what you just read or listened to WITHOUT USING YOUR SMALL BRAIN.
