- What is the doctrine of the Trinity? 6 answers
I went past a church earlier this week and noticed a sign that said "Christ is lord"
I then remembered about someone blabbering on about the trinity at university.
but then again I've always known Christianity, Judaism and Islam as monotheistic religions.
From what I've been told: Trinity = Father (God), Son (Christ), Holy Spirit.
How does 3 = 1? or vice versa
Why do some Christians say Christ is "Lord", this doesn't make any sense. Is he the son or the father? surely you can't be both. If Christians believe that Adam was born without a father or mother, why must Jesus have to have a father?
I didn't look through the Bible because there's so many versions and naturally they'll contradict each other.
Sorry for my ignorance but ultimately I don't see how Christianity can be considered as a monotheistic religion if the trinity is to believed, so why is Christianity considered monotheistic if there's a trinity?
This is not a duplicate of that question "What is the Doctrine of the Trinity?"
Clearly one asks for the doctrine of the trinity while my one questions how can Christianity be monotheistic if it involves a trinity.
