God is not a trinity but god is a trinity. Ye are gods but will die like children of men. In that statement lies the trinity meaning you will exist in 3 plains of dimension depending on the planetary age. You can exist as a fallen entity as isis during the dark age of the soul or as Horus the judge of the dark age of the soul or as Osiris when you are compiled back together in god mode

DeOTR:

See this gibberish you just typed up there!
God is not 3 in 1. God is one and Jesus is not God. He's the Son of God.
Jesus said He came out from the Father. He also said he from the Father and will return to Him. If it's not absurd to you that someone would come out of himself or return to Himself, I don't know how to to explain common sense to you.
.

Your first mistake is to think you can comprehend God with your limited senses. We know that God is, by Faith.

Now - please read through the passages below:

Phil 2: 6 - 11.
“6 Though he was God,[a]
he did not think of equality with God
[/b] as something to cling to.
7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges[b];
he took the humble position of a slave[c]
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,[d]
8 he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.”

John 10:30
“[b]The Father and I are one
.”

John 1:18
“No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.“

John 1:1
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.“

John 1:14
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.“

Jesus Christ is the Son of God - and he is God himself. You cannot separate them - they are 3 persons - with the same ESSENCE.

How can you understand that God can be in multiple places and versions of realities at the same time… but you can’t bring your senses to understand that HE can be flesh and spirit at the same time?

You can speak with your pastor, if you still do not understand.

And no, humans are not body soul and spirit.
The Bible said we were formed from the dust and God breathed into us and we were made a living soul.
Bible never mentioned we were given a soul. The breath of God made us a living soul. And what happens at death when God's breath leaves us? We go back to dust. That's common sense and it's simple as that.
There's God the Father and Jesus is His Son because He came out from Him. That doesn't make Jesus any less than His Father. Let's be guided.[/quote]

Bros naaa.. I would advise you read the Bible and understand.

Now - please read through the passages below:

2.
1 Thessalonians 5:23

23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Matthew 10:28

28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Ecclesiastes 12:7

7 and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

I willl stop there.

Lessons:
Humans are made of body, soul and spirit.

Your body is your flesh. Your soul is your Seat of reason, choices and desires. Your spirit is what connects you to God - it is pure.

At death, the human body dies. Spirit returns back to God. Soul either perishes in hell or lives in heaven - depending on the choices you have made.

Re: Is God A Trinity? by titusmichael27(m): 11:13am On Mar 19, 2023
Definitely, there is a trinity. Over the years,a lot of people have created meanings to suit their believe systems, some denied it because they do not have inspired words to express or explain it, but that doesn't mean it does not exist. What do you know about trinity, what did your teacher say about trinity? Here is the scripture I'll use to make this explanation. 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Here the scripture made it clear that there
are three that bear record in Heaven, but the question is ; are they all in one person or three distinguished individuals? Let's see that in Matthew 3:15-17 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Here again you can see that Christ was still here with John the Baptist while the Holy spirit decended inform of a dove on him, the Father then said something about him from Heavens.
So therefore, there is a trinity and it is God head, which is the Father, the son and the Holy spirit . They're one in purpose but distinguished individuals.

Genesis Chapter 1 vs 1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. [2] And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Notice the bolded above. here the bible immediately introduces 2 parts of the trinity. God and the Spirit of God are 2 different entities here, the Spirit of God being whom we popularly refer to as the Holy Spirit.

I can go on and on with numerous instances where the trinity is manifested in the scriptures. Of course the word #trinity# does not exist in the bible but was coined to represent the Idea of the God-head. In the tripod though, God the Father is at the apex of the triangle and has the highest authority

God the Spirit is God the Father
God the Father is Lord Jesus
Holy Spirit is Lord Jesus

Man is God the Son

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?
These jw guys were beaten black and blue last year and they went silent. Now they have resurfaced in 2023.

Remember... The Witnesses are teaching that Jesus, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are presently walking the earth since 1914.

If you believe that, then believe whatever they teach at your own peril.

Re: Is God A Trinity? by dominion001(m): 11:28am On Mar 19, 2023
Proof that They are separate being
1. Jesus himself said my Father is greater than I
2. When Jesus was being baptised, a voice came from heaven (the Father's voice) saying this is my beloved SON in whom I am well pleased.
3. Jesus himself said, I am the way, the truth and the Life, no one cometh to the FATHER except through me.
4. Jesus in several occasions when he was on earth prayed to the father, Jehova (The Father) never prayed and can never pray to anyone because he is the almighty.

There is no Bible verse that suggest the concept of Trinity. The doctrine of Trinity is man-made, unscriptural and misleading. We have just one God and his son is Jesus Christ.
