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.
2) Holy Ghost in the form of a Dove
3) God Above
