@MadJW,
People are capable of arriving at their own conclusions. All my siblings are christians, but, I'm an atheist.

@neologist,
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

The trinity doctrine contradicts those verses. That is why churches that teach the trinity discourage studying the bible, declaring that church tradition is of higher authority than the word of God.

The only importance is that the Roman Catholic Church was the sole defender of the faith for over a thousand years. A great many people learned everything they know from the Catholics, even if they grew up in a protestant church. Protestant churches don't teach the bible, and that's why a lot of Christians don't know the first fact about what they claim to believe.

@Jewels Vern,
How does one worship a spirit? holy spir·it. It's invisible.

/ˈspirit/Submit
noun
1.
the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul.
"we seek a harmony between body and spirit"
synonyms: soul, psyche, (inner) self, inner being, inner man/woman, mind, ego, id; pneuma

That is the RELIGIOUS definition- not the Biblical one.

"Religious" means something pertaining to a religion.
Which religion are you referring to?

@MadJW,
God is NO ONE'S son.
Thus Jesus is not literally God.
He told his followers that he serves the SAME God as THEY did.

What good is it to me that Mary gave birth to the son of God fourteen hundred years ago, and I do not also give birth to the Son of God in my time and in my culture? We are all meant to be mothers of God. God is always needing to be born.

@agrote,
agrote, the Father actually suffer for our sins that's why He purchased His Church with His own blood.
"Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood''.
ref Acts 20:28

@Baltica,
I gave blood all the time when I could. I'm no savior.

@cicerone imposter,
The bible says religion is made up by men, and God has a poor opinion of it.
