    NO! Those who believe in the trinity are Christians! Trinity in reference to the Godhead which is the Father, Son, and Hole Spirit. These three are God, and represent three parts of God. But, they are God Himself. It hard to explain indebted! God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit!

    A lot of people become confused when Christians talk about the trinity and say God is Jesus, and Jesus is God, even though they also say Jesus is God's son. And God is the Father.
    I think the trinity is just saying, that God is a part of all three, He is the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

    The Trinity is sometimes called the 'glorious mystery'. How three can be one is a mystery, but nonetheless true. Since God is omnipresent (meaning everywhere at once) God can be fully human, spirit, and other at the same time. In addition, YHWEH (the name of God) is not really a 'he', but is genderless, while Yashua (Jesus) is clearly male, and the Holy Spirit (Elohim) is feminine. This fits the Scripture in Genesis that states: 'male and female, made in THEIR own image'.

    There is one God, but three persons within the God head.  It is confusing and a mystery.  The best way I can explain it is, let's suppose you take a large test tube of water.  You put it into a special container that has three sections.  The bottom section is below 32 degrees F.  The top section is above 212 degrees F.  The middle is somewhere in between.  What happens?  The bottom of the test tube is ice, the middle is liquid, and the top turns to steam... Yet, it is all water.
