Question by crewsifixion: Is Monotheism the Greatest threat to Christianity and the Trinity concept ?
This would explain why Christians love to bash Islam with current events while ignoring all the violence they themselves are orchestrating around the world.

Monotheism is the true belief in the God of Abraham which is why Jews and Muslims do not believe in the Trinity.

“The three-in-one/one-in-three mystery of Father, Son and Holy Ghost made tritheism official. The subsequent almost-deification of the Virgin Mary made it quatrotheism . . . Finally, cart-loads of saints raised to quarter-deification turned Christianity into plain old-fashioned polytheism. By the time of the Crusades, it was the most polytheistic religion to ever have existed, with the possible exception of Hinduism.

This untenable contradiction between the assertion of monotheism and the reality of polytheism was dealt with by accusing other religions of the Christian fault.

The Church – Catholic and later Protestant – turned aggressively on the two most clearly monotheistic religions in view – Judaism and Islam – and persecuted them as heathen or pagan.

The external history of Christianity consists largely of accusations that other religions rely on the worship of more than one god and therefore not the true God. These pagans must therefore be converted, conquered and/or killed for their own good in order that they benefit from the singularity of the Holy Trinity, plus appendages.” — The Doubter’s Companion (John Ralston Saul)

Polytheism is the concept that God can be three separate entities at one and the same time.
1) Jesus
2) Holy Ghost in the form of a Dove
3) God Above

Best answer:

Answer by Sorrowful W
Christianity is a monotheism just as Hinduism is a monotheism, just as Islam and Judaism are monotheisms.

Enlightenment Under Threat (incl. Bill Maher & Pat Condell) – Sir Harold Kroto @ The Science Network – Beyond Belief: Enlightenment 2.0 — Please subscribe to Science & Reason: • www.youtube.com • www.youtube.com • www.youtube.com • www.youtube.com — Sir Harold Kroto, Chairman of the Board of the Vega Science Trust, a UK educational charity that produces science programs for television, in 1996 shared the Nobel Prize in chemistry with Robert Curl and Richard Smalley for the discovery of a new form of carbon, the C60 Buckminsterfullerene. He has received the Royal Society’s prestigious Michael Faraday Award, given annually to a scientist who has done the most to further public communication of science, engineering or technology in the United Kingdom. As you watch the conversation in Beyond Belief: Enlightenment 2.0, it might help to know about one of the sources that was helpful to me in formulating the agenda, assembling the cast of characters, and setting the tone for the meeting. I quoted this passage from Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century by Jonathan Glover (who directs the Centre of Medical Law and Ethics at King’s College, London): “Now we tend to see the Enlightenment view of human psychology as thin and mechanical, and Enlightenment hopes of social progress through the spread of humanitarianism and the scientific outlook as naïve…One of this book’s aims is to replace the thin, mechanical psychology of the Enlightenment with something more
