I’m Jewish, and therefore do not accept the Trinity.
But this common argument against the Trinity doctrine doesn’t work since the theology of the Holy Trinity would have to be based on this logic. It isn’t. Christian doctrines are based not on the acceptance of human logic but the transcendence of faith.
So you cannot start to argue against the Holy Trinity by apply a critical argument to it. The Holy Trinity is a transcendent concept, meaning it cannot be measured by critical laws of logic.
As a Jew, I don’t accept the Holy Trinity, but not on the basis of the grounds that it defies logic. As a Jew, much that I accept does not necessarily fit the exact definition of the human limits of understanding. But Jews do accept that there is something greater than ourselves.
Personally, I don’t believe in God in supernatural terms, i.e., some deity person in the sky that will grant you requests that you ask, no matter how little or great, and then reward you with eternal life with the angels in Heaven or damn you to some horrible in life for eternity because you didn’t live up to some moral code. My religious tradition is over 3000 years old and allows me to see God in more of the Source and Power that sustains the Universe and Life in General.
Catholic tradition sees that the Father is God and that the Son is God. Jewish theology which is far older allows Jew to believe that God can be the power behind gravity, the love you see and receive from a friend’s support, hug, and smile, or from the Providence that directs your life in a good way and more, etc.
So your way is just 1+1=1, but the Jewish way, if you think about it is 1+1+1+and infinite possible of other things still equaling just One.
Huh. if you want to fight with anyone, maybe you should pick a fight with the folks who invented monotheism and made up the rules for it in the first place. To the Jews, who came up with the monotheistic concept that we developed first, technically speaking, while I don’t subscribe to the Trinity itself, if Jews can see God as able to be experienced as many different things that are definitely not the same, simultaneously, I don’t see your problem.
It’s our God. The monotheism concept is ours. Technically speaking the Trinitarians, while not doing it the way we Jews might not prefer, aren’t breaking the rules. It doesn’t come from your culture, does it?
Then go watch a cat video on YouTube.
