It is very simple and rational- there is no trinity, only OneGod
I don’t have to insist on anything or to confuse anybody. I just inform what I believe in. For bridging between the faiths, I think it will facilitate if the things are discussed in an understandable manner. The religions are for common and ordinary people, and the prophets addressed the ordinary people. The true religions are simple. My submission was also simple that the fact is that all true prophets of great religions of the world on whom God revealed Himself and talked to them, one to one, they have given the message to the mankind that God is one.
To me, it is not a philosophical question; it is the observation and experience of the prophets who talked with God in different ages and different regions of the world that God is one and one only. They could not collaborate on anything being separated in time and space from one another. We (all great religions of the world) believe in God on testimony of the truthful prophets, when He revealed Himself to them and told them to give this message to the fellow human beings and that is why the prophets are also called Messengers of God. This was the message, primarily, which could not be understood or in fact practiced without believing in the Messengers also. Philosophically it can only be discussed as to “what should be”, it is only through observation and experience determined what in reality “is”. This is very simple.
What was true at the time of the prophets is also true now. If we want to know about oneness of God, we shall have to listen to what the prophets or messengers of God say and lend ears to them.
I would like to explain this with three example by testimony of Adams, Moses and Christ:-
Genesis 3:9-12 (King James Version)
9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
Only one God revealed Himself to Adam ,none else.
Deuteronomy 6:4-10 (King James Version)
4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
10And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not.
Only one God revealed Himself to Moses, and Moses only preached one God.
Matthew 22:37 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)
37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Jesus also followed in the footsteps of Moses and confirmed ONENESS of God, without any change.
