Paul's Writings are the Commandments of the Lord

There are several passages in the writings of Paul that make it impossible to believe in the Trinity. Take for instance

1Co 8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. 

Eph 4:6  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 

Gal 3:20  Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

1 Tim 2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Many scholars seek to apply the principle of cultural bias to Paul's writings especially when it comes to his statements on the roles of men and women. We are told we must understand the culture and these commands are only related to a certain time period. Yet Paul says

1Cor 14:37  If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

and notice what E.J Waggoner states about Paul

An apostle is one who is sent. Paul was an apostle of Jesus Christ, and of God, the Father, who raised Him from the dead. He had good backing. A messenger's confidence is in proportion to the authority of the one who sends him, and to his confidence in that authority and power. Paul knew that he was sent by the Lord, and he knew that the power of God is the power that raises from the dead. Now "he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God." John 3:34. Thus it was that Paul spoke with authority, and the words which he spoke were the commandments of God. 1Cor.14:37. So in reading this epistle, or any other in the Bible, we have not to make allowance for the writer's personal peculiarities and prejudices. It is true that each writer retains his own individuality, since God chooses different men to do different work solely on account of their different personality; but it is God's Word in all, and nothing need be taken off from the authority of the message, and set down to the score of prejudice or early education. The Glad Tidings page 11.

The writings of Paul are the commandments of God and the commandment of God is that:

1Co 8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
