But nothing could be further from the truth! Pre-Nicene Christianity, fighting for survival as a minority sub-culture within the then-still-pagan Roman Empire, was solidly Trinitarian. For the Church then agreed with Old Testament Scriptures (against Post-Malachi apostate unitarian Judaism and against even-more-apostate Pre-Christian Paganism), that God was always triune. Cf. Genesis 1:1-3 & 1:26 & 3:22 & 11:7 and Exodus 3:14f & 6:3 and Ecclesiastes 4:12 and Isaiah 6:3 & 11:2 & 63:7-19 and Malachi 3:6. Indeed, the Church also agreed with the New Testament Scriptures that God always had been and always shall be triune. Cf. Matthew 3:16f & 28:19 and John 17:1-5 and Hebrews 9:14 & 13:8 and Revelation 1:4-6 & 4:2-8 & 5:6f & 22:16-19f.
