    Jesus is the son of God, that simple...............

    The most difficult thing about the Christian concept of the Trinity is that there is no way to perfectly and completely understand it. The Trinity is a concept that is impossible for any human being to fully understand, let alone explain. God is infinitely greater than we are; therefore, we should not expect to be able to fully understand Him. The Bible teaches that the Father is God, that Jesus is God, and that the Holy Spirit is God. The Bible also teaches that there is only one God. Though we can understand some facts about the relationship of the different Persons of the Trinity to one another, ultimately, it is incomprehensible to the human mind. However, this does not mean the Trinity is not true or that it is not based on the teachings of the Bible.

    I would like to mention about the Trinity, correct me if I'm wrong! but do you think anything is to hard for God to do? like manifest Himself into a man body or any kind of bodies for that matter. What is so hard to understand if I cut myself into three piece am I not still one person?

    God used the familiar and simple analogy of Father and Son in reference to himself and Jesus to help us understand that not only are they two different people, but one is greater than the other. This is why in prayer to God Jesus referred to his Father as the only true God and to himself as the one that was sent forth by him. (John 17:3) All of Jesus’ apostles including Paul realized that Jesus was not God. Peter acknowledged that God resurrected Jesus. Jesus could not resurrect himself. (Acts 2:31, 32) Before his death Stephen saw a vision of heaven in which Jesus was standing at God’s right hand. This proved Jesus’ earlier words when he said he had been “alongside God” before he came to the earth. (Acts 7:56; John 17:5) Later Paul acknowledged that the God who made all things is the only true God who resurrected Jesus and appointed Jesus to judge the earth in righteousness. (Acts 17:24, 31) Out of his own mouth, Jesus admitted that the Father is greater than he, and when tempted by Satan he blatantly told him that it is Jehovah your God that you must worship and to him alone give your sacred service. (John 14:28; Matthew 4:10) As for the holy spirit, it is nameless in the scriptures because it is not a person at all. It is God’s active force that he uses in accomplishing his will and empowering his servants. Jesus taught us to pray for it, not to it. (Matthew 1:18; Acts 1:8; Luke 11:13)


    The 1967 New Catholic Encyclopedia exposes the trinity doctrine as being created hundreds of years after the deaths of Jesus and all his apostles. It correctly states that the Trinitarian dogma is a late 4th-century invention. The formulation of one God in three Persons was not established and assimilated into “Christian” life and its profession of faith until the 4th century. The Holy Bible was completed long before this time which explains why it does not even mention the word trinity.

    I beg your pardon but God is not a people.

    Colleen- You are correct. And the Holy Spirit is not a person.

    The use of the word “people” in reference to God and his Son in the answer above is not meant to imply that they are human people but to indicate that they are two separate individuals. The scriptures describe both of them as spirit beings, a life form that humans cannot see. (John 4:24; Exodus 33:20; John 1:18) However, the Bible uses words familiar to humans to describe and explain God to our species. Some scriptures refer to God as having human characteristics such as a face, finger, eyes, and mouth, words that we can relate to, but as humans we cannot literally know what God looks like. (Hebrews 9:24; Deuteronomy 9:10; 2 Chronicles 16:9; Matthew 4:4) However, the terms “Father” and “Son” are easily understood by even the youngest of our species to be two separate individuals.

    I like to compare the trinity to water:


    Jesus= Water


    GOD= Ice


    Holy Spirit = vapor


    Three forms of the same thing, but thats too simple.......

    Good subject for a doctoral thesis...
