“1 2 3” In Trinity World: Counting to three = one

Trinitarian Claim

There are numerous passages which mention the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Trinitarians commonly call these passages "explicitly Trinitarian" and insist that they are expressing the doctrine of the Trinity.

The Problems with the Claim

1. Popular Examples

Whenever they can count "1 2 3", Trinitarians imagine they have a three person G-d on their hands. Here is what they do in their minds: below are 5 texts in which they imagine proof of the Trinity doctrine.

After being baptized, (1) Yahushua came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw (2) the Spirit of G-d [Yahuwah] descending as a dove and lighting on him, and behold, (3) a voice out of the heavens said, "This is My beloved son, in whom I am well-pleased. (Matthew 3:16-17).

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of (1) the Father and of (2) the son and of (3) the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19).

The grace of (1) the Lord Yahushua Christ, and the love of (2) G-d [Yahuwah], and the fellowship of (3) the Holy Spirit, be with you all. (2 Corinthians 13:14).

There is one body and (1) one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; (2) one Lord, one faith, one baptism, (3) one G-d and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. (Ephesians 4:4- 6).

Peter, an apostle of Yahushua Christ, To those who reside as aliens, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of G-d the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Yahushua Christ and be sprinkled with His blood. (1 Peter 1:1-2).

So what they do is first assume the Holy Spirit is a separate third person, then they count "one, two, three" and somehow in their heads this amounts to a single Triune G-d. But the Trinity isn't the acknowledgment of three. The Trinity is the belief that three are ONE being, one identity.

2. Appalling Naïveté

These passages stand among the Trinitarian "Let's count 'one, two, three' and get a Holy Trinity" Whenever they can count 'one, two, three' Trinitarians somehow seem to think this amounts to a Triune G-d. Now this would not be a big problem if indeed it was an obviously established fact in the Bible that a three person G-d exists and this three person G-d was Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. However, The trinity is not a clearly established fact in the Bible. It begs the question while at the same time Trinitarians are actually using verses like these to try and prove the existence of a three person G-d when absolutely none of the verses above can be demonstrated to be identifying a three person G-d. It really amounts to circular reasoning. In the above passages, the one G-d [Yahuwah] is not identified as all three but one of the three.

3. Counting to Three Equals Three, Not One.

The Trinity is by definition three persons who are one G-d. The main idea in the Trinity is not that there are three persons. Three persons mentioned together is not unusual to anyone on any day. The main idea is that these three are also one G-d. Absolutely none of the above verses which Trinitarians are citing when they count, "one, two, three" in this manner, indicate that the three mentioned entities are also the one G-d. With no proof that these three are also ONE Trinitarians have nothing more than the mention of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. and even with that they must assume that the Holy Spirit is indeed a distinct and separate third person in addition to the Father and the Son.

It is an oddity of the Trinitarian mind that counting three persons equals the Trinity when nothing in the texts actually suggest such a thing at all. Their doctrine is that three persons are also one and none of these verses indicate any such thing. It is also an oddity of the Trinitarian mind that many do not realize this fact and neither do they realize they are performing mental gymnastics by taking one of the aforementioned three ("G-d") and giving his name to all three by an act of their own will and based on their own imagination. .

4. The One G-d is Already Mentioned as One of the Aforementioned Three

In each and every case, G-d just happens to be one of the aforementioned three. Take 2 Corinthians 13:14 for example. G-d is mentioned, Yahushua is mentioned, and the Holy Spirit is mentioned. Since the one G-d has already been mentioned, why would anyone want to resort to mental gymnastics, and by an act of your own will, label all three as "G-d." It's just plain weird when you think about it. It is ridiculous to label all three as G-d when G-d is already one of the mentioned three. In fact, the matter is even worse at Ephesians 4:4-6 the one G-d is mentioned, and the text actually says, "one G-d and Father of all who is above all and through all and in all," and we are being explicitly told who that one G-d is, the Father [Yahuwah]. But somehow all the relevant facts seem to just float right by the Trinitarian mind.


This is just yet another example of willful Trinitarian eisegesis, the faulty practice of imagining something into the text which is not there by an act of the will, something which the text, nor the context, ever suggests. It does not take much thought by anyone to realize that the trinitarian claim is as empty as a drunkard's bottle. But for some odd reason, multitudes are blinded to the obvious errors of the Trinitarian claim.

The whole trinity idea is astoundingly imaginary and based on ancient myths of paganism. [reserved for another study]
