AnswerMark 12:29 is certainly a good argument that could be used against trinitarianism, and probably was used for that purpose before the doctrine of the Holy Trinity was adopted in the fourth century. Remember, however, that if you look for discrepancies in The Bible, you will find no end of them. Christianity requires belief, not inquiry.

What word is used most in the Bible out of Trinity or Godhead?

Those words are not in the bible.What is the origin of the Trinity doctrine? The New Encyclopædia Britannica says: "Neither the word Trinity, nor the explicit doctrine as such, appears in the New Testament, nor did Jesus and his followers intend to contradict the Shema in the Old Testament: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord' (Deut. 6:4). . . . The doctrine developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies. . . . By the end of the 4th century . . . the doctrine of the Trinity took substantially the form it has maintained ever since."-(1976), Micropædia, Vol. X, p. 126. The New Catholic Encyclopedia states: "The formulation 'one God in three Persons' was not solidly established, certainly not fully assimilated into Christian life and its profession of faith, prior to the end of the 4th century. But it is precisely this formulation that has first claim to the title the Trinitarian dogma. Among the Apostolic Fathers, there had been nothing even remotely approaching such a mentality or perspective."-(1967), Vol. XIV, p. 299.Regarding the Trinity, the Athanasian Creed (in English) says that its members are "incomprehensible." Teachers of the doctrine often state that it is a "mystery." Obviously such a Trinitarian God is not the one that Jesus had in mind when he said: "We worship what we know." (John 4:22, RS) Do you really know the God you worship? Serious questions confront each one of us: Do we sincerely love the truth? Do we really want an approved relationship with God? Not everyone genuinely loves the truth. Many have put having the approval of their relatives and associates above love of the truth and of God. (2 Thess. 2:9-12; John 5:39-44) But, as Jesus said in earnest prayer to his heavenly Father: "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ." (John 17:3, NW) And Psalm 144:15 truthfully states: "Happy is the people whose God is Jehovah!"-NW.

Where did the ten commandment started?

Commandments, The Ten (Ex. 34:28; Deut. 10:4). The Hebrew name for these is the "Ten Words," hence the name Decalogue. They are also called the Covenant (Deut. 9:9) or the Testimony (Ex. 25:21). The giving of the Ten Commandments by God to Moses, and through him to Israel, is described in Ex. 19:16-20:21; 32:15-19; 34:1. They were engraved on two tables of stone, which were placed in the Ark; hence they were called the Ark of the Covenant (Num. 10:33).

What does the Bible say about a man killing members of his family?

The general rule is that murder is forbidden as exemplified in Commandment #6 (Exodus 20:13). There is no place in the Bible that grants any family member permission to kill any other family member. However, there are several instances where a man is supposed to bring family members before a court of law for death penalty crimes including: rebellious children (Deut. 21:18-21), blasphemy (Lev. 24:16), and proselytizing other religions (Deut. 13:6-10).

If God is God Jesus and the Holy Spirit then doesn't that mean he is 3 in 1?

Yep - one of the really nifty things about being God, apparently, is that you get to exist as a "triune" being. Quite literally three-in-one, as you (very accurately) put it. That's the "Holy Trinity" that you might have heard of. When you get into the theology of it and the implications that it has it gets a bit more complicated (and makes for really great conversation) but on the face of it, God is simultaneously Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Cool, huh?No. The early Christians did not view God, Christ, and the holy spirit as a Trinity. Says The Encyclopædia Britannica: "Neither the word Trinity nor the explicit doctrine appears in the New Testament, nor did Jesus and his followers intend to contradict the Shema [a Hebrew prayer] in the Old Testament: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord' (Deut. 6:4)." Moreover, they believed Christ's words: "The Father is greater than I am." (John 14:28) Jesus' early followers drew clear distinctions between God, Christ, and the holy spirit. In fact, they baptized disciples (1) in the name of the Father, (2) in the name of the Son, and (3) in the name of the holy spirit, not in the name of a Trinity.
