The idea of the Trinity is not something I need explained . I've seen all the explanations...I've seen scripture that "supports" the Trinity theory. I can look at the same scripture and understand it differently.
My question is... what if they are 3 individuals? Why is that thought so offensive in itself?
What if God is Jesus's literal father and our father as well? What if Jesus is our brother? For me knowing that an older brother suffered not only my sins, but the sins of the world is incredible and I love him so much for it. What if the Holy spirit is yet another spirtual individual? Is that really so bad??
And last...if someday you find out that this is the truth, (lets say when you die) how would you feel about believing the opposite in life?
Hypothetically now ladies....don't explain the Trinity or give me scripture, I'm just asking WHAT IF...that's all.

If you actually do some study on the subject you will find that they ARE three separate beings as far as the bible teaches... They work in conjunction with one another like a team not like a single being... The idea of the trinity actually comes from pagan beliefs. The belief of the tri-facets of god or the three fazes of life is really where it all began. The maiden, mother and crone... Or in this case the son the father and the always was...
SO... as for you what if... I figure IF you all get to heaven and find there are 3 gods, you're gonna have some serious apologizing to do... lol! But that's coming from a pagan so chances are you weren't really asking me...
