Trinity - A Pagan Concept  

Belief in a Trinity (Three Gods) was a common belief amongst Pagans, Idolators and Gentiles (non-Jews).

In order to make Christianity more appealing to the masses, Christian missionaries developed the 'Christian version' of the Trinity (Three Beings in One Person). The Trinity doctrine was 'read into' the Biblical text.

Gentiles (non-Jews) converted to Christianity, as the new religion encouraged them to continue their pagan rituals but under a new 'Triune' God, who was a more powerful God than their previous gods.

The table below lists a few 'Triune' gods who pre-date Christianity.
