Ummm .. Jews and Muslims do not believe that God is a trinity..It is not up to Jews and Muslims to decide on what the Trinity is or should be..
Yeah, if you say so.I have not seen any Muslim or Jew that has an understanding of the Trinity.
For instance, Muslims are of mind that the Trinity is Allah, Mary and baby Jesus.
I was raised as a Christian, so "this Muslim" knows better.
I do not think so .. that is what you believe.And as for the Jews,
Well, it is interesting that the first Christians believed in the Divinity of Jesus and they became Christians.
There is no proof that the disciples believed Jesus is God.
It all boils down to this "Arian business".
Trinitarian Roman Emperors burned all texts that earlier Christian scholars, such as Origen,
Arians did not believe that Jesus is God, and Roman Empire declared them heretics.
Furthermore, the Arians were not few in number .. they were persecuted and slaughtered.
..not very Christian like, I would say.
Yes it is, unless they denounce their faith.All I want to show is that, to make a claim that Muslims and Jews can not accept the Trinity, is simply not true.
..and a Jew or Muslim would not carry on praying in their temple or mosque, in that case.
..and I do not believe that the disciples would have carried on praying in the temple in Jerusalem either.
i.e. if they believed Jesus is God
It is faith 101 .. and why would they need to pray to God in the temple, if they could pray to Jesus???
No ! Jesus prayed to the Father [God], and so did the disciples.
Our Father, whom art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name...
