"Ever heard of a faith called Jehovah's witness?"

"That is what they believe. They don't believe in the holy trinity. I have a close friend that practices that particular sect of christianity and I know for a fact they do not subscribe to the "father, son, and holy spirit" aspect of other protestant groups. So you are saying they are wrong and you are right. How arrogant."

I am saying they are wrong. You are saying I am wrong. Who is arrogant? Do the Jehovah's witness's think I'm wrong? Are they arrogant? Simply holding a belief someone opposes doesn't make you arrogant.

"Obviously it is you that is ignorant of the different ways you can interpret scripture. I was merely pointing out how certain things in the bible can be taken different ways."

This is were I disagree. Now I agree that you can twist what the Bible says if you take it of context, picking out a verse here and there. But you can not interpret the whole point of the Bible without dropping large sections. For example, here are a bunch of verses which mention God is triune:
