    Personhood is integral to any meaningful definition of deity. If you don't believe in a God with the attribute of personhood you don't believe in a God, you believe in some sort of mystical "higher force".

    "That's what the doctrine of the Trinity teaches" but Bible does not teach so because the Bible teaches only one God in 1 Corinthians 8:4 but in Rev 3:21 Jesus sitting with the Father on his throne proves that there is more than one being so Jesus cannot be God because God is one only.

    You do realize what John saw in Revelation was a vision right? You're not supposed to take visions literally.

    In John 1:2, "He (Jesus) was with God in the beginning" shows the same point that Jesus CANNOT BE GOD and BE WITH GOD because God is only one in 1 Corinthians 8:4.

    You are quoting that out of context. What version are you using anyway? Here's a full quote from NIV:

    1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    Whether Rev 3:21 or John 1:1, Jesus CANNOT BE GOD because Jesus cannot be God and be with God because God is only one in 1 Corin 8:4.

    but Paul says in that same letter, Chapter 8 verse 6:
    yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

    The Bible constantly says God is the Creator, and here Paul identifes Jesus as that Creator as well.

    Contrary to what DC Comics thinks, the word "Trinity" does not refer to three separate beings!
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    All over the Bible, God is one. Therefore, Jesus CANNOT BE GOD and be WITH God in John 1:2. Otherwise, this requires having two GODS.

    That's not what the evidence says.
