Questions for those who believe in the Trinity

Questions for those who believe in the Trinity:

Why do many encyclopedias, dictionaries and other sources (including Sir Isaac Newton) say that the "Trinity was a pagan corruption imposed on Christianity in the fourth century by Athanasius"?

Why do NUMEROUS encyclopedias agree that "... the doctrine of the Trinity was of gradual and comparatively late formation; that it had its origin in a source entirely foreign from that of the Jewish and Christian scriptures; that it grew up, and was ingrafted on Christianity"?

If Jesus is really God, would he have a Head (i.e., someone over him with more authority)? (1 Cor. 11:3)

How come Jesus subjects himself to God? (1 Cor. 15:27, 28)

How come these scriptures show that God is superior to Jesus?

If Jesus is God, how can Christ be the "FIRSTBORN of all creation"? (Colossians 1:15)

Why does Rev. 3:14 say that Jesus is "the beginning of the creation of God"?

Why does John 1:18 say that Jesus is God's "only BEGOTTEN Son"? ASV

How can Jesus be God and HAVE a God at the same time? (2 Cor. 1:3; Eph 1:3; Col 1:3; Mark 15:34; John 17:1-3; etc. Also in heaven, Rev. 3:12)

How can Jesus be God and also sit at His right hand?

Why do these scriptures phrase Jesus as a separate person from God? (John 20:17; John 14:1; Mark 10:18; John 17:1-3; Also in heaven, 1 Cor. 11:3 and Luke 22:69)

How can Jesus and the Father be God if only the Father has knowledge of the "day and hour"? (Mt. 24:36)

Why does Micah 5:2 say that Jesus' ORIGIN was “from early times”?

Why does Proverbs 8:22-31 show that the Messiah was CREATED/PRODUCED by God?

If Jesus is God, why is it that God resurrected Jesus? (Acts 2:32)

Why was Jesus exalted (not to become God Himself, but) to a secondary position...the "right hand OF God"? (Acts 2:33)

If Jesus is God why did he not come in his own name? (John 5:41-44)

Why did Jesus call the "Father...the only true God"? (John 17:3)

How could Jesus be tempted by Satan when God cannot be tempted with evil? (James 1:13)

How could Jesus be God when Jesus died and yet the Bible says that God cannot die? (Hab. 1:12; 1 Tim. 6:16)

How can Jesus be God if "no man has seen God at any time"? (John 1:18)

If Jesus is God, why does Heb. 5:8 say that he is "a son" who "learned obedience from the things he suffered"?

If God and Jesus really are equal, then why does the Bible phrase them as "Father" and "Son"?

Is there even one scripture which clearly defines the Trinity?

Where is there in Scripture a vision, dream, or CLEAR description wherein God is shown as three persons?

Where are clear scriptures where Jesus is called "God the Son," (equal to those declaring "God, the Father)?

Where in Scripture is God ever described using the word "three"?

Holy Spirit

Why do these quotes from Trinitarians admit that the Holy Spirit is not God but rather is a Force from God?

If the Holy Spirit has always been the third person in a triune God, then why would Jews instructed in the OT scriptures and in the teachings of John the Baptist, NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS? (Acts 19:2)

If the Holy Spirit is God, then why isn't the Holy Spirit given equal description in the Bible?

Why didn't Jesus ever teach that the Holy Spirit was God along with the Father and Son?

Why does the Bible describe the Holy Spirit as an "it"?

Why does the Bible describe the Holy Spirit as a thing that can be poured out into portions?

Why is the holy spirit nameless and indistinguishable from all of the other holy spirits?

If the Holy Spirit has always been the third person in a triune God, then why did the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD disregard the Holy Spirit as a member of the Godhead when they made Jesus 'God' in 325 AD? Why did they wait until the Council of Constantinople in 381 AD to include the Holy Spirit in the formula?

If the Holy Spirit is really a person, wouldn't the water and blood be persons too according to Trinitarian reasoning and 1 John 5:8?

If the holy spirit really is a person, then why is it sandwiched between a list of QUALITIES at 2 Cor. 6:6?

Why is it that nowhere in the Bible is the Holy Spirit ever said to be an equal member of a trinity?

Why is it that nowhere is it mentioned in the Bible the words, "God, the Holy Spirit," or "The Holy Spirit is God"?

Why is it that there is never mentioned a vision, dream or clear description in scripture wherein God and the Holy Spirit are shown as the same person?
