Jehovah's Witnesses and the Trinity

Many Jehovah's Witnesses believe the Trinity doctrine to be a work of evil that keeps people confused about God and distant from Him. This is because the Jehovah's Witness organization has misrepresented the Trinity doctrine, mistranslated scriptures, and lied about early church beliefs. This can help: http://4jehovah.org/.../yes-you-should-believe-trinity/

When asked what keeps people from becoming Christians, the Trinity doctrine is the most frequent answer. I believe that these details are not required for salvation. Remember the Roman who asked how to be saved. Did he know anything of any Trinity doctrine, or refutation there-of? No. And what was the answer? "Believe in the Lord Jesus and be saved you and your household." Acts 16:31 "the one who confesses the Son has the Father also." 1 John 2:23

I do, however, find this debate important because when the deity of Christ is not accepted it keeps people from asking Him for life (John 4:10; 7:37-38) receiving Him (John 1:12) calling upon His name (1 Corinthians 1:2; 1 Kings 18:24; Romans 10:9-12) Trusting Him to save us (1 Thes 1:10) having a personal relationship with Him (1 Corinthians 1:9; John 5:39-40) and having a relationship with the Father as a result (Ephesians 2:18, 1 John 2:23)

I have decided to devote a section of this blog to the Trinity doctrine. May God bless those who are seeking Him.
