The term "Trinity" is not found in the Bible, and it identifies a concept of Christianity that is not easy to grasp or explain. Yet most conservative Bible scholars agree that the Trinity doctrine is clearly expressed within Scripture.

This resource explores faith groups and religions that reject the Trinity, including a brief explanation of each group's beliefs about the nature of God, revealing a deviation from the doctrine of the Trinity:

(1) Shlomo says:

Judaism and Islam both reject trinity. There are liberal branches of Judaism, but I’m not aware of any liberal branch of Islam (though I’m sure there are some liberal individuals). The Unitarian Church also rejects Trinity.

Anyone who focuses soley on Jesus (christo-centric)to an extreme is in danger of rejecting the concept of the Trinity.

Charimatics are known for this tendency.

there are many, many, many more religions that reject, or don’t even think about the trinity. 99 percent of all religions have nothing to do with the trinity. this is mostly a christian thing. it’s man’s attempt to make God more human like. God is not anthropomorphic. Jesus is a fictitional creature similar to Santa Claus and has no real connection to God himself, just to a man made religion. What about deism, pantheism, pandeism, panendeism, panentheism, unitarian, humanism, wicca, you didn’t even mention judaism or muslim.

Jason –

As stated in the article, the list is not exhaustive but encompasses a sampling of several of the major groups and religious movements … and, I was focusing on faith groups that are often seen under the broad umbrella of Christianity.
