    The Trinity...

    Hi Lenny, I’m having a dilemma over the Trinity. I accept that God is three in One (Matt. 28:19, 1 John 5:7) but have difficulty accepting that these three components are nothing more than manifestations rather than separate persons. Surely the notion of three persons contradicts verses such as Deut....
