The Word "Trinity" . . .

. . . is very biblical except it doesn't appear in the bible.

Right--It doesn't take a very intelligent person to realize why the trio of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit make up a Trinity.

I think the point is that the Trinity was never referred to by the writers of either the old or new testaments. It's a more modern term. Nothing more.

Very Biblical? Maybe if you just look at the fact that there is a trio of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, but certainly not when you look at the definition of the Trinity as it comes from the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed and the way modern christianity defines the trinity. One in three and three in one; one essence manifested in three ways; spirit form only without body, parts or passions. Come on, that's all hogwash and certainly doesn't make sense when compared with the Bible.

It is my understanding that this "trinity" stuff is not accepted by the Orthodox Christian Church. It's a Roman Church concept. Who's right?

Who is right depend upon which version of the Bible you own. The work "rapture" does not appear in the Bible, yet we understand its meaning from scripture (depending upon which version of the Bible you own).
