Sorry sport, never heard of the Trinity, have we?

John 10:30, “I and the Father are one.” We need only to look at the Jews’ reaction to his statement to know he was claiming to be God. They tried to stone him for this very reason: “You, a mere man, claim to be God” (John 10:33). The Jews understood exactly what Jesus was claiming—deity.

Maybe in your version of Christianity you don't believe in the Trinity, but tell that to the billion deluded Catholics.

Are you an atheist? how is that possiable if your argueing for the existence of the trinity?

It can not be applied to the God of the bible (as per the OP) because God does not claim the attributes needed for the paradox to be valid. This paradox will only work against the idea of an Omni max type deity. God makes no such claims. He describes Himself as an alpha and omega not an Omni max. the difference? He is Who he wants to be, nothing more nothing less.

I'm sorry, are you attacking me or my argument, Mr. Fallacy? Please pick up a dictionary, your last post was almost unreadable. And I don't see you refuting the Trinity, merely shifting the argument.

So you would worship Hitler, since he has not been malevolent to you. Check.

*possible

*arguing

Xtardianity dictates a triune deity. It comes as no surprise that you would cherry-pick THAT part of xtardianity as well.

Sorry sport, the second line of Epicurus' Paradox says he's not omnipotent. You said God does not claim the attributes of the paradox, but here it is from your divine book: "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!” -- Revelation 19:6. Or are you one of those Christians that doesn't believe the bible is the word of god?
