... as we've already discussed, the Bible clearly says that God is one, and that three separate persons are all God. How does one reconcile this without something similar to the Trinity?
Why reconcile it at all? What's the good of reconciling the Bible with itself if the reconciliation causes schisms between Bible believers? Why not just treat two different viewpoints as two different viewpoints? Priceless!
