Because it is the best synthesis of all biblical data on the nature of God. All other views deny or ignore major swaths of Scripture.
For example, on one of our blog posts, there is a thread where Darrell presented numerous passages to a Mormon about the oneness and unity of God. Instead of dealing with these passages the Mormon writer chose to ignore the passages and continuously point out other passages in the Bible that stress the plurality of God.
In Mormon theology, there are countless gods, and all human beings may one day become gods themselves. So, of course, Mormons have to dodge and duck all of the passages in the Bible that speak on the oneness of God. They ignore biblical data in order to accommodate their theology. Their theology is more important than the data in the Bible.
The Trinity realizes a unity and plurality in God that makes sense of all the biblical data. There are three persons (plurality) in one nature (unity).
All of the passages that emphasize the divinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are recognized. All of the passages that recognize the unity of God are recognized. Both of these truths are held, and neither is denied.
Is your theology more important than what the Bible actually says?
