Believing there are three SEPARATE divine centers of consciousness is polytheism.

Professing TRINITARIANS on this forum often make NON-TRINITARIAN statements. For example...

There is one being who is God, and within the Being called God there exist three separate centers of consciousness, of which one is the Father. Following my worldview the Father is God, but God is the Father, Son, and HS, therefore no appositive.

Believing there are three SEPARATE divine centers of consciousness is polytheism.

The definition of "separate" is "forming or viewed as a unit apart or by itself".

That is why TRINITARIANS are careful to say "The persons of the Trinity: distinct, not separate."


P.S.

Here is a concise statement of what I believe...
The spirit Yahweh is the only one who is eternal. Yahweh is also in the universe as spirit and as a human. Yahweh in the universe as spirit is called the Spirit of God, Yahweh in the universe as a human is called the Son of God, and eternal Yahweh is called God the Father.

And here is a more detailed overview...
(Note: I agree with the view of Melito, Bishop of Sardis around AD 160-180. The following is how I word it.)
For this creation, Yahweh God (the only one who transcends all creations) determined to create a universe with a kingdom of redeemed humans (living souls) for his glory where he would reign as a living soul himself. The Scriptures describe how Yahweh would accomplish his plan. In an instant, transcendent Yahweh (called God the Father) created the supernatural and space-time of this universe and also became immanent as a spirit (called the Spirit of God) and in the form of a living soul (called the Son of God) with a glorious human body. God the Father then created all things within the universe by the power of the Spirit of God commanded by the Son of God. But whereas Yahweh created a human spirit and soul for each of us, Yahweh himself became the human spirit and soul of Jesus. At his conception, Jesus' glorious body was changed to a mortal body to be made like us so he could make reconciliation for our sins. At his resurrection, Jesus' mortal body was changed back to a glorious body and he will also give each of his elect a glorious body when he returns to reign in his kingdom forever.

Towerwatchman,
I do not see three separate centers of consciousness. I only see two. Jesus said the only true God is the Father (John 17:3) the Father is one center of consciousness. Jesus said this Father God is Spirit (John 4:24) The Father as Spirit is the same center of consciousness. Spirit is what the Father is. Do you say there are two Spirits? Luke 1:35 said the Holy Spirit would come upon Mary and this is how she would conceive. Mary's conception is the Lord Jesus the second center of consciousness.
God bless
