    The Holy Trinity is explained and revealed to us by Jesus Christ in the word of God. Jesus said that He Himself is the Son of God and that the Father is in heaven and that the Holy Spirit is a person as well, He called Him the Comforter. He said that three bear record in heaven, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and He said that these three are One. One God, three persons in perfect harmony.

    We are made in Gods image, three parts of the same body. Mind body and spirit. Our mind is part of the body, but our feet don't think. They respond to our mind and are connected, but they are separate. Our spirit is inside our body, science says that we loose 7 ounces when we die -that is unexplainable. That may be our spirit? Our body has a brain they communicate with each other the brain tells our body what to do, but our body tells the brain when we are hungry. These are three separate things, they are connected to each other, (but in think spirit). God is a spiritual being. Father, son, and Holy Spirit. Each separate,but a part of each other. If God were easy to understand, He wouldn't be God.

    If we are made in Godsimage he cant be too good looking.

    **Here's the way I think of The Trinity....and I am no great Bible scholar. But this makes sense to me....and it works for me.

    GOD .... the Great Creator, was before everything. Created everything. Along the way, for reasons of His own, He decided He needed to make a link between Himself and Human Kind. So He sent JESUS. Jesus was not only a link, or a bridge, for kinship with God, but he was also salvation for us humans, who are never perfect.
    JESUS....already explained above, was to be here only long enough to establish the link, but he had to prove his relationship to God by enduring crucifixion, and then rising from death. He also had to leave so that God could send the Holy Spirit to be with us.
    HOLY SPIRIT...very, very powerful. Not a man. It's a spirit, to be with us, to help us, to give us comfort in all kinds of situations and ways.
    So there is THE TRINITY...God, Jesus, Holy Spirit. One created us, One came to let us understand God and to help us feel kinship with God, and one is still with us now to help us in any way.

    Actually, Jesus is the Creator of all things by the power of the Father and the Holy Spirit and of course Himself. They are all One and are in perfect harmony one with another.


    Speaking of Jesus.....


    "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:" (Col 1)

    There is an interesting story about St. Augustine....


    He was walking on the beach one day contemplating the great mystery of the Trinity. Suddenly he spots a young boy running from the ocean to a hole he dug the sand. Back and forth he ran filling up his pale with ocean water then dumping it into the sand hole he created.


    He noticed the boy was getting a bit distraught as every time he poured the water into the hole it would quickly disappear. Augustine approached the boy and said "boy what are you doing?!?"
    The boy responded "I am trying fit the ocean in my sand hole"....Augustine quickly remarked "foolish boy you cant fit the ocean in the little hole!"


    the boy responded "and you cant fit the Trinity in that little head"


    As much as we try to explain the Trinity it still remains a great mystery. And as we all know the nature of a mystery is the more you discover the more there is to discover....

    Why not become a Muslim or a Jehovahs Witness?  They don't believe in the Trinity, so no problem with believing the unbelievable. Or better still give up religion, you know it's all bunk.

    Christianity absorbed nearly ALL of Paganism except it's Goddess, which had three aspects: Maiden, Mother, Crone. Which translates as: Father, Son and Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit). Read up on other religions and you'd be surprised of all the similarities.

    well 3 is a powerful number isn't it. ice/water/vapor. Body/Mind/Spirit.

    I liked the answer which someone gave:
    "If you are a mother, a daughter, and a teacher,
    are you one person, or three people?"

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR GOD BLESSING of TIME AND ENERGY ON MANIPULATIVE WORDS AND PHRASES of MAN! FATHER KEEPS THINGS SIMPLE SO THE MEEK WILL FIND THEIR WAY AND BECOME GREATER THAN MAN CAN UNDERSTAND. SOON YOU WILL BE MEEK AND UNDERSTAND ALSO! STAY TO THE PATH OF DISCIPLINE AND MAKE YOURSELF CLEAN PURIFY YOUR TEMPLE AND EVERYTHING WILL BECOME CLEAR. ONLY THE MEEK WILL KNOW THIS! BY FAITH ALONE WILL YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS STAND IN THE LIGHT OF MY FATHER! AND ONLY THROUGH ME YOU FIND YOUR WAY! HOLY TRINITY IS DISCIPLINE OF FAITH TO STAY TO THE PATH TO RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT LEADS YOU INTO THE LIGHT OF CREATION HEAVEN OF MY FATHER. WHOM WILL ONLY SEE YOU WHEN YOU BECOME "MEEK with LOVE". LOVE BLESS YOU.

    "DO NOT WASTE YOUR GOD BLESSING of TIME AND ENERGY ON MANIPULATIVE WORDS AND PHRASES of MAN! "


    I agree! THe scriptures have been proven through prophecy to be the very words of God. ANy words that go against the scriptures are words of man.

    The Scriptures were written by man, Dude!

    there is no trinity god himself was manifest in the flesh.and also deuteronomy 6:4 is the first commandment (hear oh israel the Lord our GOD is one Lord). (john 10:30 i and my father are one).(John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?)

    FriendofGod

    You are picking and choosing scriptures. One must consider the full counsel of God's word before embracing a doctrine. Too any scriptures to list here that prove the reality of the Trinity.

    The TRINITY does not exsist it is merely a pagan concept of god an affront to GOD

    FriendofGod

    The scriptures dclare that God is three in One. Of course if you never read the scriptures you would not know this. Seek and you will find the truth.

    I WAS MOVED WHEN I READ THIS TOPIC AND I WANT TO SHARE THIS WITH ALL. IT CLEAR THAT THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF HUMAN CHARACTERS OR HUMAN BEINGS IF THE WORLD AND THIS ARE THOSE WHO ARE BORN IN THE SPIRIT OF GOD WHO UNDERSTANDS WHAT GOD SAID TO MANKIND FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS A SPIRIT DIRECT FROM GOD TO MANKIND AND SO IF YOU ARE NOT IN THE SPIRIT GOD YOU MAY NOT UNDERSTAND ACTUALY WHAT GOD SAYS. AND SO THOSE WHO ARE BORN IN THE FLESH DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IS SAID IN THE SPIRIT FOR THEIR MIND OF THE WORLD.
    IT IS JUST SIMPLY TO UNDERSTAND THE TRINITY, THE BIBLE SAYS 1.GOD THE FATHER 2.GOD THE SON 3.GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE ONE BODY WHICH REVEAL HIMSELF IN THREE PART SO HOW CAN THE ONE BORN IN THE FLESH UNDERSAND WHAT IS SAID IN THE SPIRIT. SO THOSE WHO DONT UNDERSTAND THIS PLEASE KINDLY SUMMIT YOUR SELVES TO THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR HE IS THERE TO HELP US TO UNDERSTAND THIS HIDDEN TRUTH.

    I heard the trinity explained as the love between the father and the son being so great that that love is an entity itself,known as the Spirit.

    if you are a mother a daughter and a teacher are their three of you or just one

    FriendofGod

    Just one. Study and consider ALL the scriptures before you embrace a doctrine.
