    Because there are multiple beings in paganism, which makes it polytheistic. Trinitarianism is monotheistic because there is only one being of God. You must understand the distinction between person and being.

      Because that's not what pagans believe?

      i am talking about a divine source, a kind of pantheon, a great sky.

        I don't know of any pagan religion that treats their pantheon as a single entity.

      You can say Ares Zeus and Hades are three persons, but they all share the single essence of divinity, and you worship that essence of divinity, therefore the pagan is monotheistic in front of the christian subhanallah

        no, no one would think that if you say i worship zeus that you automatically worship hades too.

    It literally is true for (some forms of) Hinduism

    Why can't christians just admit that the trinity was a classical cope stamp to retroactively deal with paganistic elements in Christianity? I mean, modern christians do this too in terms of evolution for example. Although not related to anti-paganism.

    Water is ice is vapour. Quite easily explained tbh.

    Also, a son becomes a father, then becomes a spirit; again, same entity. Upon death a son doesn't stop being a father, or dead.

    1+2+3=6. Together, they are whole, but 1!=2.

        Why are you overly complicating things? It makes no sense.

      Your analogies will never work. Those consist of the same objects rearranged in different ways due to the different average kinetic energy they inherently possess. Are you trying to imply your gods have parts like molecules? That they have differing emergent properties (hardness, wetness, etc) as a result of their construction? Is this how you explain the ignorance of the son (he humbled his vaporous omni attributes into ice shaped like human nature). Is resurrection the same as thawing? Perhaps reversed entropy explained all along what it means to take on the sins of the world. Just admit to yourself that an appeal to mystery is all you can really do if you want to stick to this thing Jesus never even taught his disciples

    because God revealed Himself this way.
    Anything else is just trying to make a mockery of it.
    same as trying to fit it into pantheism, it makes no sense.

    It can, but it isn't. I guess you could start a Greek pagan but Christian-inspired cult where all the gods are united by one essence, but that would be Christianity influencing Greek paganism, not the other way around.
