What is the problem with the Trinity?

Henrik Ibsen, A Doll's House

It is not a coincidence that the New Testament is written in Greek, Christianity was adopted by Greeks, and the Church of the first centuries has a clearly Greek identity (Cf. Greek Orthodoxy – From Apostolic Times to the Present Day). After the ancient Greeks’ unbelievable attempt to get close to Him, God was obliged to respond. Christianity is this response. The same happens in the primary, properly personal, level, i.e. with each person.

So-called “pure monotheists”, whether they belong to the Judaic, the Muslim, or any tradition of such a kind, they are in reality not monotheists but atheists. Abolish the Trinity, and you also abolish Oneness. After such an abolishment, the One that is worshipped is not the God, but the idea of a creature.

    “But all of these things are closed in a darkness, away from impious people.” –My last comment of the day, promise. I love this sentence. If God could be proven by, say, a logical proof, He would be God only of logicians. God however is equally accessible to the normal, the autistic (like me), the mentally retarded (hope that’s not too un-PC); the last words Alzheimer’s victims often remember are the words of the Our Father: no human is as democratic as God.
