My theology chops are modest at best. One monotheism has been dinged by another as being slightly quasi-mono because of the Trinity and the saints and mariolatry.
The dinging party severely prescribes oneness (one God, one Messenger), whereas the dinged party revels in muchness (one Godhead in three Persons, intercession, hyperdulia inferior to latria). Many large ideas in which to delve.
Does the Word wink merrily from somewhere beyond the contesting pieties? Likely as not, I hold.
