Is God A Trinity? by Jokanem(m): 11:30am On Mar 04, 2023
Is God a Trinity?

Many Christian denominations teach that God is a Trinity. However, note what the Encyclopædia Britannica states: “Neither the word Trinity nor the explicit doctrine appears in the New Testament . . . The doctrine developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies.”

In fact, the God of the Bible is never described as being part of a Trinity. Note these Bible passages:

“Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.”—Deuteronomy 6:4.

“You, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the Most High over all the earth.”—Psalm 83:18.

“This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.”—John 17:3.

“God is only one.”—Galatians 3:20.

Why do most Christian denominations say that God is a Trinity?

I heard a pastor some hours ago say God created morning, afternoon and night!

But I couldn't ask if they all exists as one and at the same time!

Eckankar teaches that God is not describable, and no one is ever right or wrong about IT.

This is because GOD is nothing and is everything at the same time. Any attempt to fit it into any mold is a futile effort.

All man deals with is majorly GOD's attributes, the story of the ten blind men and the elephant explains our romance of what we think GOD is.

In Genesis 1:1-4

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.


From here we can see the Trinity at work.

The first was God who created the heavens and earth....The Father

The next is the spirit of God moving over the waters....The Holy Spirit.

And finally the son who the Bible describes as the word of God....Jesus.


Another definition of Trinity is

Matthew 3:16-17

16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”


From here we see Jesus...The son being baptized.

Then the spirit of God descending like a dove landing on Jesus... The Holy Spirit.

And a voice from heaven speaking...God the Father.

This is how I was thought the Trinity in Sunday school...we were told that before anything can be regarded as a doctrine it must be proven in the old and new testament, and Jesus must confirm it. We've seen where Jesus told his disciples that if you have seen the father you have seen me. And he also promised them the comforter which is the Holy Spirit.

This is why I believe it's safe to say that God is Trinity.

Yawn

Trinity is a concept brought in to explain an otherwise very incomprehensible Being.

The fact is, God is beyond our comprehension. At times he seems to be one, atimes he seems to be many persons at once.

( And attempts to describe God at once always ends up with some scary looking creature with many eyes and legs and bodies who is on fire and who is somewhat like a man and who has all sorts of appendages. And don't get me started on the seraphim ! Up till today.the first chapter of Ezekiel is still indecipherable to me)


But no matter how many things God seems to be, He ( Jehovah, YHWH, El) is one

The answer depends on who you ask and which verses in the Bible they use to either support or discard it.

Bible made it clear that Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus also said that he came out from God.
It's those preaching absurdities like only one person is the Father, Son and also the Holy Spirit that are misleading unbelievers.

You are probably the one who lacks understanding.

The doctrine of the Trinity means that there is one God! who eternally exists as three distinct Persons — the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Stated differently, God is one in ESSENCE and three in person.

Just as a man is (I) BODY (ii) SOUL; AND (iii) SPIRIT. The difference is that Man is not co-eternal, like God. In the beginning (Genesis 1), God said let us create man in our own image - in the likeness of God.

It is never a contradiction to refer to God has 1 in 3 persons.

These things were express in the words of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Harmony.
God is harmony.
Harmonize the four elements of nature and understand how they work and you will find God in His truest form.
Religion is simply a control tool and will never lead anyone to divine discovery.

FOLLOW RELIGION AND YOU WILL NEVER KNOW "GOD!"

God is power, might, union, love, blessing, harmony.

I do not know whether God is a Trinity.
No one does.
No one ever will.


What I do know for sure is that God is the centre of power in the universe from whence every true seeker obtains.
Whether Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, or whatever religious adherent.
The only requirement for accessing God and the power in his majesty is to discover him without the distractions of religious doctrines.
As far as I am concerned, religion and politics employ the same tactic - weaponization!
While politics weaponizes poverty, religion weaponises ignorance.

May we be delivered soon.
Amen.
