Paul is saying something that Calvin would never have understood. He is not defining his terms because they are purposefully undefined. They're not called persons because they're not exactly persons. What are they? You would have to either be a native Aramaic speaker, or do a lot of research on the use and meaning of qnume.
Now, he is advocating a relative of trinitarianism, but not the doctrine itself perse.
Just my rather random thoughts.

The nature of the Godhead is beyond logic, and I'm not claiming that Andrew's theology is illogical. His claims concerning church history, however, are unsubstantiated and illogical, which I've demonstrated. Telling the truth, widely known and widely available truth, concerning known historical fact, does not show a lack of love and Christian good will.
Not so much unsubstantiated, my friend. The only historians who say that the "apostolic" churches are actually apostolic are from the "apostolic" churches. They're a little bit biased. From my reading of the history, these churches are late first century at the best (like 90s C.E.) and most are later than that. We have no evidence that the Nazarenes believed in the Trinity anywhere. I'm familiar with every reference to them from the first century through the beginning of the fifth, and there is simply no such evidence. I'm sorry. Not in Talmud, the church fathers, or anywhere else. The secular historians are also agreed that there is no such evidence, and that the Apostolic churches are not Apostolic.
I would like to beg to differ with the term "historical fact." There is no such thing. It's like "scientific fact" or "scientific proof." We're talking about things that happened 2,000 years ago. Honest historians admit that that long ago, we're really just guessing. Now, as far as the inspired text goes, we know. But then half the time there's so much dispute as to what these texts mean we're back in the realm of guessing. We know it's true, we just don't know for sure what the heck it actually meant.
