My question came about because of reading this quote from someones answer to another question "Jesus was the Son of God....he was not God..."
I thought the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit were all aspects of God - one in heaven, one on earth and one in the spirit world. So how can Jesus not be a God then?? Would he be called a Demi-God then?
(please play nice - I'm asking this question in ernest. Thank you)

Personally, I don't believe in the Trinity or Jesus' divinity, and find some flaws in the trinitarian doctrine. Some Christians are trinitarian, while others are unitarian or see all three as separate divine entities. Those that do believe in the Trinity believe in ONE God in THREE persons--where the essence or nature of each are the same (as opposed to a triad where each deity is distinct). Most Christians view it this way and see themselves as monotheistic, but some believe they are really henotheistic.
