You my friend are like Peter who God built His church upon.
Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
This is what god looks like.

Here i always thought god was a hermaphrodite.
My challenge to the Trinity is only that it is the creation of a committee of biblical scholars and politicians. It is NOT biblical, but merely a biblical argument... yet people accept as if it were clearly set forth in the Scripture. It is not. After all, Timothy 2 3:16-17 tells us:
"....All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the servant of God maybe thoroughly equipped for every good work...."
Sorry, but 2 Timothy promises me that I should be able to find this.... and if it were really a foundational doctrine that God wanted us to understand, wouldn't this be abundantly clear rather than masked in one metaphoric verse and contracted in hundreds of others.
The Trinity ain't in the Bible nor does it ever say Christ is God.... yet people hold steadfast to this belief (a belief of men).... The problem with the belief is that when you think of Christ as God, much of the richness of Christ's life is muddled (I mean, really, how is God tempted by Satan... but the Son of God (in the full richness and honor of Jewish tradition), like the first Son of God (Adam) clearly can be tempted by Satan... and Christ's ability to overcome that temptation is really rich.
Re-read John... consider the clear distinction of Christ as the Son of God (of God, but NOT God).... you may find it exceptionally enriching. Consider for one moment that you have been buffaloed by your church for years (they didn't tell you that the Trinity was CREATED by a political committee and nothing more than an interesting Biblical argument).... If nothing else, realize it is a belief and not necessarily the truth.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
