Seriously, why is this even a question?
It's like asking if the milk is white ?

There is only ONE God.

Had there been more than one, there would have been chaos in the universe.

Is the Trinity a form of polytheism?

Well, it probably is to you; it's just not to everybody, 'cause sometimes milk is chocolate.

Yes, and I answered the poll.

You said, some Christians are polytheistic, and I guess I heard about Mormons and non-Trinitarians, the question is, what is their position on Jesus?

Although us Muslims are not Trinitarian I can not answer for Mormons or any other non-Trinitatian Christians.

My position of Jesus(as) is that He is one of the best loved Prophets and Mentioned by name, in the Qur'an, more times than any other Prophet(PBUT) Like Christians we await his return. He is not a part of any Trinity and denounced the belief of a trinity. A Trinity is polytheistic.

This is lovely. I've never heard that before.

I like that very much!
And I'm technically a trinitarian Christian but belong to a church that encourages questioning and agrees that there are many points in Christianity that everyone will not agree on but it doesn't matter because the point is that we are here to serve God. Our little human squabbles over what this or that means are of little significance. We are known by how we live our lives, not what we spout. For the record, I believe in ONE God.

As an example, in a bible study one day, a parishioner asked the priest why God would give one message to the Christians and another to the Muslims. Instead of "MUSLIMS ARE WRONG AND DOOMED BLAH BLAH BLAH" as some churches believe, our priest just said, "I don't know."

I'm just following Katzpur around because I'm into interreligious dialogue. I find this topic interesting.
