Is Christendom the only religion that believes in a trinity?
The trinity is represented in most religions in one way or another.
Most people who believe in religion believe in only one religion. Few people, for example, claim to be both Christian and Hindu. consequently, there is no special term for someone who believes in only one religion. Those who follow a religion that holds there is one and only one deity are called monotheistic
. Roman Catholic Answer I don't believe there are any similarities at all. The religion of ancient Rome tended to absorb all the gods of any people they conquered. The Catholic religion is based on Judaism and believes that the Messiah came in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. The Catholic religion is thus Christianity and only believes in one God, while the Roman religion was polytheistic.

In relation to the trinity, there is no type of Christianity which doesn't believe in the trinity. The rejection of the trinity automatically disqualifies one from legitimately holding the term Christian, since it invariably involves a downgrading of the one who Christians believe in and worship, Jesus Christ. A number of different sects and cults reject the trinity and also reject the full deity of Jesus Christ as taught in the Christian scriptures.
If you believe in Christianity, then belief in the Trinity is quite rational. In a way, the trinity is only an extension of the ancient Egyptians belief that Amun and Ra could be invoked as a single entity- Amun-Ra. Similar examples in other religion show that the belief in a concept of three gods in one is not irrational.

Christianity is not the only religion that announces that a person will go to Heaven if people are in that religion. In Islam, God promised us that He will sent Muslims to Heaven so long that they are striving to serve and please Him.
