Why are non Trinitarians so obtuse to reality?
Jesus is God!
The Bible says so!

They do not believe in the Bible, OR they refuse to look at the original languages to understand what Jesus and others claim about His Deity.

We're not, dear one, but you might be. The Bible does NOT say that Jesus is God. In fact, it makes three foundational claims about Jesus Christ:
1. He is Jehovah incarnate, but not the God he worships and prays to, the one who sent him.
2. He is the creation of God.
3. He is the begotten son of God.
Why do you, a "Christian," deny, dilute, or ignore at least two of these Bible teachings?

God is Triune and a person can better comprehend this mystery by reciting the rosary each day with care.

Trinitarians or non-Trinitarians are terms found nowhere in the bible.
Either a person is a CHRISTian saved through CHRIST and the gospel (Rom 1:16 & 1Cor 15:1-4) or they are a not a christian at all.
If a person is going to cal themselves a christian because they are member of a christian religion --- then they are deceiving themselves.
As to the trinity which is the Godhead in the bible (Matt 28:19 & Rom 1:20) or Christ's deity as God in the flesh (John 1:1,14 & 1Tim 3:16)
Knowing these bible truths will not save a person.
Only Jesus Christ can save a person -- nothing else.
Of course the Godhead trinity and Jesus is God are doctrines all christian's should know about through their personal bible studies (2Tim 2:15 & 3:16) but a christian should never preach them to the unsaved unless they connect Jesus Christ and the gospel with them.Source(s): KJV 1611

Evidence within the Bible itself shows that Jesus and his Father are two separate Divine beings, the Father and the Son. Not the same, not part of a Trinity. In fact, Jesus never said he was God. The idea that Jesus is God was adopted at the council of Nicea by Constantine 325 after the death of our Lord Jesus Christ. It was adopted from pagan religions because Constantine was pagan himself. Ancient pagan religions believed in gods in threes.

Absurd Examples of Trinitarian 'Reasoning'
"Neither the word Trinity, nor the explicit doctrine as such, appears in the New Testament, nor... in the Old Testament." - The New Encyclopedia Britannica, 1985, Micropedia, vol. 11, p. 928.
Trinitarians themselves admit that "The Trinity...is an INFERRED doctrine, gathered ECLECTICALLY from the entire Canon". - page 630 of the highly trinitarian publication, Today's Dictionary of the Bible, Bethany House Publishers, 1982
Not only is the word 'trinity' not found in the Bible, but the doctrine itself is nowhere to be found. Couple this with the fact that it is also beyond logical reasoning for 1+1+1 to =1. It is beyond logical reasoning for three or even two persons to actually be the same person. It is beyond logical reasoning for a "father" and a "son" to be the same person. Scripture does not allow for such a view of God: "God is not a God of confusion." -1 Corinthians 14:33 (RSV)
Because of this, the “proof” offered by trinitarians is always specious, vague, and/or ambiguous. So Trinitarians are forced to rely on a certain type of 'reasoning'. Yes, by employing Trinitarian's exact same 'reasoning', with a little research and imagination, many others in the Bible can also be rationalized as being God! Below are but a few examples:
Moses is said to be god to Pharaoh and Aaron. (Ex. 4:16, Ex. 7:1)
Paul said "I am" twice. (1 Cor. 15:10)
How about picking any one of Jesus' believers since his believers are supposed to be one as Jesus and his Father are one? (John 17:11, 22)
How about the judges in Israel since Jesus used them being called gods in his defense when they thought he was saying that he was god? (John 10:34-36; Psalms 82:6)
How about Luke 9:26 (which actually says, "when [Jesus] comes in the glory [singular] of him [Jesus] and of the Father and of the holy angels")? Paraphrasing a trinitarian's case for Mt. 28:19, Luke 9:26 is also "first asserting the unity of the three by combining them all within the bounds of the single [glory], and then throwing into emphasis the distinctness of each by introducing them in turn with the repeated article." But, here, of course, the angels, too, make up the "trinity." We have, then, God the Father, God the Son, and God the holy angels!
How about Othniel or Ehud since God sent them as savior in the past? (Judges 3:9,15)
How about one of the apostles since they were authorized to forgive sins? (John 20:20-23)
How about one of Jesus followers as the King James shows that they will receive worship? (Rev 3:9; Luke 14:10)
How about the blind beggar? At John 9:9 the blind beggar that Jesus healed said "ego eimi", or I am.

The trinity doctrine was added in AD 388 by RC theologians to their version of Christianity. That's the 'reality' of the trinity!

I'm haven't got a dog in this race, but obviously the early Christians were not trinitarian . As the trinity doctrine emerged, there were other competing Christologies. The fact that there were other Christologies that were cast out of the fold at Nicea in 325 makes this just a fact. In the end, I don't think God concerns himself with theological correctness the way humans do.Source(s): "I have not come to abolish the law"
