Questions

Why does this have all those external links, including two to Wikipedia articles? Why no internal wikilinks, e.g. to Nicene Creed? This strikes me as wrong, but I don't know enough to fix it properly and just deleting the links seems far too heavy-handed.

What are the alternatives to trinitarianism? Should this article have a bit of the history, links to Arian and Nestorian, perhaps others? I think I need some compare and contrast text before the doctrinal issue will make much sense to me. Sandy Harris 15:50, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Redirect?

Actually, a somewhat longer article lives at Trinity. Unless someone can draw a distinction between the two, they should probably be merged. -Derek Hodges 18:27, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
