    Analogies of the Trinity. The idea of God as three-in-one is indeed a mysterious concept, one that is difficult to understand. Analogies often fall short. Some think of God as H 2 O, which is sometimes a solid (ice), sometimes a liquid (water), and sometimes a gas (steam). Others compare God to an egg, which is part shell, part white, part yolk. This UNDIVIDED ONENESS (1 St. John ) is the Blessed Trinity, ONE GOD. Holy Scripture reveals the Blessed Trinity as GOD even before creation itself. "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with GOD and the Word was GOD." St. John "In the beginning GOD created .

    The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. 'triad', from Latin: trinus "threefold") holds that God is one God, but three coeternal consubstantial persons or hypostases —the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as "one God in three Divine persons". The three persons are distinct, yet are one "substance, essence or nature" (). Gen In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (KJV) In Gen. God is seen creating the heavens and the earth. Thus, the heavens and the earth, while being made, ARE the very expression of God’s thoughts. His thoughts were made known in His creation.

      The Holy Trinity is a Bible doctrine that describes the person of God. It’s called the Holy Trinity because God is thrice holy (Isa. ; Rev. ). It is not a new teaching, as some falsely say, and the reason is because God is an eternal being. Therefore, the term Holy Trinity describes God as He has always been. Defining the Term.   The concept of the Holy Trinity is a mystery, but not a total mystery. Mysteries, after all, are made up of clues. In a mystery story we pursue and piece together clues in order to see the whole picture. So it is with the Holy Trinity. We have lots of clues about the Holy Trinity.

So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him.” – (Genesis) It is the mysterious Elohim, the plural noun which takes the singular verb, the Triune God, the three persons yet one God, who thus creates, and yet created man.

“Let us make man,” says God. Then man must reflect the Triune nature of God. The doctrine of the Trinity tells us that there is one God, i.e., one infinite mind and will, but that this one and the same Mind and Will is equally and without confusion "operated" by three.

The “Us” in Genesis cannot be the supposed other two members of the Trinity because it says God made man in his image. If God is a Trinity of Persons, then man, being made in God’s image, would have to be tri-personal as well. Since man is a uni- personal being, God must be a uni-personal being.

Nevertheless, the Spirit is never described to have a humanlike shape. Man was created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis ), so man looks like God. If the Spirit were also a person in a "trinity," it too would look like a man just as the Father and Son do. Yet, at best, the Spirit had a dove's shape in one instance, and a man and.

Another thing critics love citing for chapter 4 verseis use classic commentaries such as Tafsir al-Jalalayn, and Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs, by that they conclude the Quran is a false book and not from God, since they believe the trinity consists of “the Father, Son and Mary.”. Holy thoughts on a God made man ; or, the mysterious Trinity prov'd: also reasons given, that the wise Creator fram'd not the universal all, only for the benefit.

Theologians sometimes use that term when they want to refer to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit as three divine Persons in one God. At this point I think we should acknowledge the chief objection to the doctrine of the Trinity, which is that it is absurd.

On one hand it seems the following scripture declares Jesus to be God: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John ). Let’s not confuse what is being said here.

It does not say “In the beginning Jesus was the Word, Jesus was with God and Jesus was God. By the Trinity is meant the unity of three per- sons in one Godhead; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Representing God as one, the Scriptures also as- cribe divinity to Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Trinity is three persons in one God. It is simple to say, yet the explanation has evaded man since the subject was undertaken for study. Thus, the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God; and yet there are not three Gods, but there is one God.

This passage offers a paradigm statement of the orthodox understanding of the Trinity. As it makes clear, the doctrine requires not only that God exists in three Persons, but that each of the following is true as well.

Genesis says God made man male and female into His “likeness” (demuwth). Genesis This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness (demuwth) of God.

He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created. So, to help reap the rewards of this doctrine, I have provided a list of my top 5 (more or less) recent books that will help the church fall in love with the mysterious beauty of our one God in three persons.

Bruce Ware | Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Bruce Ware’s goal is to bring the wonder of the Trinity before the eyes of the church. In fact, I Cor. also reveals the Holy Spirit to be omniscient when it says, “ no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” He speaks as God in texts of Scripture like Hebrews Thus, the Holy Spirit is revealed in Scripture to possess the same infinite and divine nature as does the Father and the.

What is the Trinity Doctrine. The doctrine of the Trinity as taught by most Churches states that there are three co-equal (equal in every respect), co-eternal (the same age), omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful) gods, who are not three gods, but one the words of the Athanasian Creed it is, “the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are.

The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is, as stated in the General Catechetical Directory, “the most fundamental and essential teaching in the hierarchy of the truths of faith.”The unfathomable nature of the Trinity beckons us to the highest reaches of the human intellect and beyond to that real understanding only possible by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and even then at best we will bask.

The clearest allusion to the mystery of the Blessed Trinity in the Old Testament is probably the so-called Trisagion [“thrice holy”] of Isaias (VI, 3): “Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God of Hosts, all the earth is full of his glory,” which is rightly made much of by many Fathers and not a few theologians.

This triple “Holy.In Isaiahthe angels around God’s throne cry “Holy, Holy, Holy” three times—once for the Father, once for the Son, and once for the Holy Spirit.

The Source of Misunderstanding Almost all of the Scriptures used by those who reject the trinity to portray Jesus as a “lesser god” spring from a basic failure to understand the.The doctrine of the Trinity was the key to understanding that those three experiences belonged together because the God behind them was the one God, making himself known as Father, Son, and Holy.
