    Christianity teaches that Trinity is the belief that God is one manifested in three persons; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and each Person is fully God.

    However, Jesus refuted over and over trinity in the Bible. For example, Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 that "no one knows that day and hour nor the Son not even the angels in heaven BUT ONLY THE FATHER". Only means only; therefore, Jesus proved that the Holy Spirit does not know that hour or that day.

    Because you do not understand.

    For example, The Word was always both God and with God and the sole agent from God to cause creation. John 1:1-3.

    It's still illogical to say that god was always both god and with god and the sole agent from god to cause creation. I mean it isn't that we don't know what you are saying, it's just that what you are saying is illogical.

    . . . which are three Gods in one, the same as the Gods of Hinduism as many Gods in one Brahman, and classic polytheism. Multiple Gods are multiple Gods regardless of how you do the math.

    God the Son remains a separate God seated at the right hand of God the Father in heaven. Arathe anthropomorphic description of polytheism.

    Silly you. There is only one God, John 17:3, 1 Corinthians 8:6, ". . . But to us there is but one God, the Father, . . ." 1 Timothy 2:5, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; . . ."
