Michael S you wrote

I'm a monotheist

Then it must be easy for you to help the so called prophet of Islam in responding to the Aristotelian question that was posed to him by, as we are told by al-Tabari, the Jews and the pagans of Mecca: "If Allah created this creation then who created Allah"

Muhammad needs help

Hi, Dhimmi.Actually, I feel no need to read Tertuilian. For every point of view, there is a sage, rabbi, "church father", etc. to back up that point of view.

Then it should be easy for you to find a sage or a rabbi or a church father that was able to refute Tertullian let me help you I'm not aware of anyone who has been able to refute his explanation of the Trinity and if the Trinity can be refuted then Aqaneem Allah in islam can be refuted

The Bible tells me,2 Tim 2:[23] But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

The Qur'an also tells us in Surat al-Ma'ida 105

O you who believe! (Do) not ask about things if made clear to you, it may distress you and if you ask about it when the Quran is being revealed it would be made clear to you. Allah has pardoned [about] it, and Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, All-Forbearing.

Sounds familiar Michael?

You see the single God is always afraid if his followers start to ask questions

For the readers this is a very embarrassing verse to most Muslims

You went on to say,

This is what I wrote

"It is Greek logic at its best and this is why it is beyond the understanding of most monotheists"

And this is Michael's answer

If so, it is probably beyond my own understanding; because I am a rather ordinary monotheist.

What is an ordinary monotheist? Explain it to me you see the worst thing that King Akhnatoon of Egypt did was to invent this irrational thing called monotheism

One final point: You call the Gnostics: Idolaters what ever that is now you tell me what is the difference between praying to an unseen God and praying to an idol of a God? Hint: there is no difference
