Question
Thank you for your letter Rando.  I am happy to respond to your questions.

Answer
Although I detect sarcasm in your letter, I will respectfully answer you.

You - "So the trinity doesn't teach (three gods)?"
Me - Correct...it does not teach three gods.  You are misunderstanding it if you believe that it does.

You - "why the "bait and switch"?"
Me - There is no bait and switch.  Please feel free to read the letter to me that posted yesterday title "Trinity defined" to understand what trinitarians believe.

You - "Oh I see why not!  Because if "God" prayed to God, then that would expose your Trinity as an Apostate teaching of Multiple Gods."
Me - You are arguing against either modalism or polytheism.  Neither of which trinitarians believe.  I was clear about that in the letter you read.

You - "Why does the Trinity refuse to name JESUS CHRIST in it's doctrine??"
Me - The link that you provided is not opening on my computer.  In many of your previous posts, you have pointed to the Athanasian Creed as the "doctrine" of the Trinity, so I assume that is what you are referring to.  I was also very clear in my letter that trinitarians do not care what the Athanasian creed says. They only care what the bible says.

The rest of your post goes on to speak against the Athanasian creed.  I am not sure why you did this.  Again, I was very clear that trinitarians do not care what the Athanasian creed says.  You may have missed that statement.  I would encourage you to carefully read what is written so that you can accurately present your opposing viewpoint.

Expertise

I am not a Jehovah's Witness, however I can answer many questions concerning the ideas and doctrines on which they disagree with mainstream Christianity. I have spent a great deal of time in ministry with current and ex-Jehovah's Witnesses, as well as those who have started to become disillusioned with the Watchtower Organization.

Experience

Jehovah's Witnesses are generally wonderful and moral people who are zealous for God. However, in their zeal, they have pledged allegiance to what they believe is God's spirit-directed organization. This allegiance blinds them from allowing God's word alone to work in them. My hope is to share the love of Jesus Christ with all who seek salvation, no matter their label or denomination. My experiences come from the relationship that I have with Him as the source of my daily strength. These experiences create an undeniable testimony of salvation by grace through faith in the cleansing blood of the Lamb of God. Through prayer and meditation on God's holy word alone, we find truth as revealed to us through the Holy Spirit.

Organizations
As the word "organization" is misleading in this particular area, I want to be clear that, as a member of the body of Christ, the label or denomination of the church I attend is not the source of my salvation. I do not go to or through any organization for official knowledge or guidance. I go to God's word alone.

Education/Credentials
I have a Bachelor and Master's Degree with extensive educational experience.
