The great preponderance of Christian sects DO believe in the trinity. The list of non-trinitiarians is mostly small and rather eccentric Christian groups. The modern groups include:

Latter Day Saints, Jehovah's Witnesses, Unitarians, Christadelphians, Cooneyites, Oneness Pentacostals, Swedenborgians, and some forms of Quakerism.

Most of these groups give some special being to Christ, although not the precise one developed by mainstream Chrisians.

The answer that not all Christians are trinitarians doesn't really dispose of Scott's question, since such a huge part of the world'religions do not accept the Jewish God, incluing of course, Buddhism, Jainism, Muslims, Shintoism, Confucianism, Hinduism and Sikhism.

I think you do owe Scott a searching answer, though, because I too had the question that he posed when I read your response.

Mustn't it be live and let live on the faith page by necessity? Each group has its own way of becoming one of the elect that necessarily excludes members of other faiths. Except in the case of extreme and offensive exclusion of the right of other religions to exist, and clear insult to another religion, religionists must really accept and embrace this discontinuity between their beliefs and those of other religions.

And occasionally these exclusive beliefs will momentarily surface. It defeats the purpose of the faith board to pursue people for mentioning this fact, if it is done respectfully and in pursuit of some personal understanding.

I don't see how it could be otherwise.

If it's done in hindrance or attack of other religions, then it's a different matter.
