    When you say that traditional trinitarians are agreeing with the Pharisees when they say that interpreting Jesus’ words in Mark 2 (ability to forgive sins) implies Christ’s divinity, this is inaccurate. The Pharisees by their questions are posing a syllogism:
    a) If you can forgive sins you are God.
    b) Jesus is not God.
    c) Therefore Jesus cannot forgive sins.

    Traditional trinitarians merely affirm the first premise. But you affirm the second. So both you and they are in effect “agreeing with the pharisees”. You just agree on different premises.
