#8-Thinking Trinitarians believe in three gods.
You know the set up-You meet someone in high school or at work who is Baptist or Methodist or some other similar brand of Christianity and this means one thing: They believe in the trinity. Which means they believe in 3 GODS (the horror!). So you scramble back to your church and talk to either your youth pastor or pastor and ask him how to approach this territorial invader (it's like he has AIDS or something)....and after being shown Deuteronomy 6:4, John 10:30, Isiah 9:6, and John 14:9,we then set these verses to memory and go charging with boldness to that heretical Trinitarian to show him the errors of his ways.
And upon being shown the verses, the trinitarian usually goes, "yeah I believe that." As the shock of the moment settles in, we realize that we had been led to believe that trinitarians were purposefully ignoring verses in the bible to believe that there are 3 Gods in heaven, and now at the moment of climax, we find out that these Hedonistic trinitarians believe God is three, but they also openly accept and pronounce God is one.
So what gives? We don't really understand it. The point is, trinitarians are not tri-theists like the Mormons believe, but yet for ease of consciousness we will go on believing trinitarians believe in 3 gods just because it is easier to swallow and easier to think we are in the right and they are in the complete wrong.
