King James Bible
The First Epistle General of John
5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
The above is how close you can get to spelling out trinity from the bible but it is not there in the new english bilble
New English Bible
John's First Letter
5:7 For there are three who testify:
5:8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and the three agree as one.
Read the whole bible and you will not find anywhere that Jesus (PBUH) ever said that I am God, worship me.
All you have are ambiguous verses which could mean this or that or worse, mistranslations of original hebrew or the greek.
