Dear Don:
WOW!  Boy oh boy, I guess that settles it once and for all!  Man has 33 bones in his left foot and 33 bones in his right foot and 33 vertebras! Wow.  Wait.....wait a minute....33?  And this proves what?  That God is a TRInity?  I thought a 'trinity' was 3?  That would mean that God is ELEVEN TRINITIES, not?  I mean, 3 x 11 = 33, eleven trinities?
 
But Jesus never said anything about vertebras or bones in His foot. Here is what Jesus really did say, "I and my Father ARE O-N-E" (John 10:30). He didn't say they were "3," or "33."  Did I miss something?
 
Jesus was 2 years old when He went to Egypt.
 
For 3 years the fig tree didn't produce fruit.
 
Lazarus was in the grave 4 days.
 
There were 5 foolish virgins
 
Man was created on the 6th day.
 
There are 7 days in the week.
 
Baby boys were to be circumcised on the 8th day.
 
There were 9 cleansed lepers that didn't thank Jesus.
 
There were 10 virgins in the parable of the bridegroom.
 
After Judas betrayed Jesus there were only 11 left.
 
There are 12 tribes of Israel, etc., etc., etc. What does any of this prove?
It proves about as much as 33 bones in our feet prove that God is composed of three separate persons. What a crock!
 
By the way, the Scripture tell us that there is ONE God.
The number three is found 426 times in Scripture.
The number ONE is found 1497 times in Scripture--maybe there is only "ONE" God?  Maybe we should despense with all such nonsense.
 
God be with you,
Ray
