    Yes, that is a sad fact.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    "The gods of Trinity are not different gods, but manifestations of the same Supreme Iswara, who is also known as the Saguna Brahman or the awakened or dynamic Brahman. Since ordinary human minds cannot comprehend the oneness of the universe, it becomes difficult for us to understand this concept clearly. To summarize the idea briefly let us take the analogy of a person performing different tasks. Just as a person becomes different persons while performing different roles or duties in the mental plane though not in the physical plane, God who exists in innumerable planes simultaneously appears as the Trinity in three different roles. The difference if any is in appearances which is part of the grand illusion that He weaves all around us.

    That's the same explanation you give. Perhaps you want to change your story or discredit this explanation.
    Well that is interesting. Apparently I stand corrected on the claim I made, but, they are speculating when that tradition started. The site even admits that the three Gods makeing up their claimed trinity were not allways that way, nor did they allways have the character they are given now. It also admits they are not the only gods of hinduism. Sounds to me that it is likely they absorbed the idea of the Christian God into hinduism. Regardless, it is not an eternal natured god, since it had a beginning, but I'll accept that you showed me wrong in the claim that there is no other religion claiming to have a triune god.

    That still does not prove, or even suggest that the Triune God of the Bible dosen't exist.

    Everyone knows something I don't.

    2 Chronicles 7:14
    14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    NOW yer talkin'. I happen to agree in large part. But just allow your relationship with God grow, nurture it through study of Scripture and prayer, and you'll find yourself taking on some of His traits, one of which is loving PEOPLE in spite of what you dislike ABOUT them.

    Sline, ol' bud. Ya got the jist of it.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.
