What is Henotheism?

by Matt Slick

Henotheism is a subdivision of polytheism (the belief that many gods exist) and is the teaching that of the plurality of gods, one of them is supreme.

Some critics of Christianity misunderstand the doctrine of the Trinity and claim it to be a triad that consists of a supreme God known as The Father who is a greater God than Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  But, such critics fail to understand that the Trinity is the teaching that there is only one God in three eternal and distinct persons who all share one divine substance.
