Yes <chuckle>, now if you believe Jesus to be Michael or Joseph Smith that's another thing.

The description of the Trinity, as it reads in the Catholic Encyclopedia is what many people have difficulty with since it claims that that three individuals are seperate AND one in a physical and spiritual sense. Since there is so much to contradict that idea in the scriptures (and this is the reason the doctrine was faught so diligently at the Council of Nicaea), many Christians reject it.
Could this qualify as striving about words? 2 Tim. 2 14

We're talking about the very nature of God. Definitely worth striving about.

The word "trinity" does not change my understanding of all that the holy scriptures say about the nature of God, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

I guess by your comment, it made me reflect upon back in the days;
when one man ran the whole town, especially in the "Western flicks"
The sheriff, was the one who ran the post office, the general store, on and on
Mayberry RFD"
Remember the "wizard of Oz? He was all things in this fictional but renowned
classic film, " I mean this cat was all over the place, trying to trick poor Dorothy he had the Lion and Tin Man didn't he?

My $.02 cents
God Bless You

The wages of sin is death - that sounds finite not infinite ......... the payment for those sins is finite ...... What verse says that an infinite being ie God must pay the price for the sins of humanity?
