“1+1+1=3, thats true, I look at it more like

x+y+z=1

x=y=z

Each portion making up then 1/3 of the Godhead.”

x+y+z= 3 separate items, even when the items are equal. If 3 separate Gods make up 1/3 of the Godhead, than either the Godhead consists of 3 Gods, or each of the x,y,&z Gods equals 1/3 of a God

“Of course, using number in this case would be incorrect anyway. I better example would be

infinity + infinity + infinity = infinity”

When you say infinity, do you mean an infinite number of Gods? (that’s gonna open up a whole new can of worms) or the amount of time God has existed? (which has nothing to do with this conversation)

“I am one that the majority of christians find heretical. I deny a trinity. I believe they are 1 god + 1 god + 1 god = 3 gods. However, I have tried to understand the trinity so, I am used to hearing their explanations—none of which are convincing to me (sorry guys). But with my belief in 3 gods (at least for us on earth) I’m also not trying to claim monotheism. I’m perfectly fine with being considered polytheist even if others wish to pretend I don’t exist (check further up in the thread) or in other ways slander me. I thought since in regards to the trinity we’re in the same boat (it being very confusing and seemingly illogical) I could offer my insight, and in so doing I think I just confused you.”

No you haven’t confused me, as a matter of fact, I think your explanation is the first one I’ve seen that actually makes sense.

Peace
