Adonai, which was breathed into the mouth of Adam...
Scutum fidei = Arms The shield of faith
Scutum fidei vel Arma Trinitatis est signum inveteratum doctrinae Trinitatis in Christianitate
"The shield of faith is a sign of inveterate or weapon of the Trinity doctrine of the Trinity in Christianity".
Adsunt in hoc signo duodecim enuntiationes:
"Pater est Deus"
"Filius est Deus"
"Spiritus Sanctus est Deus"
"Deus est Pater"

"Filius non est Pater"
"Pater non est Spiritus Sanctus"
