Explain The Trinity To Me

Need scripture help regarding Trinty. Trying to help husband understand; but he wants scripture to "see" that we are to worship Jesus as we do God. I am a new Christian and believe in Trinty; but don't know where to direct him to.

Jhonny there is much in the Bible where God doesn't explain the details. Maybe as fallen man we don't have the mental capacity to understand? In Romans 11:34 Paul quotes Isaiah 40:13 'Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counsellor?'

The idea that one God could be Father, Son, & Holy Spirit is indeed a mystery to falible man, but true none the less.

(From CMI): 1 Cor. 8:6, Paul applies Shema of Deut. 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD." Paul uses the key phrase "one Lord", applies it to Jesus Christ, thus including Jesus in the divine identity. Also, phrases "of/by whom all things" are typical Jewish formulations that express God's relationship to creation. Cf. Jewish concept of Wisdom, God's attribute, as God's tool for creation--still retaining monotheism by including Jesus within the divine identity.

Eloy, it's your mentality that gives Christians a bad name for rejecting the mind. Jesus commanded us to love God with our ... mind (Matt. 22:36-38), and God told Isaiah, "come, let us reason together" (Is. 1:18). Paul told us to renew our minds (Rom. 12:2).

The ministerial use of reason, i.e. reason submitting to Scripture, is fine. The problem is only with magisterial use of reason, when reason stands over Scripture like a magistrate and judges it.
---Ktisophilos on 7/2/07

From Creation Ministries International site:

The Bible reveals, God is love (1 John 4:8,16). This is so distinctive of the Christian faith, and means that love is part of Gods very nature, even before He created anything. But love requires at least two personsself-love is not really love at all. So there must be at least two persons in the Godhead. If God were only one person, then love could not be part of His nature, and could exist only if God created other beings.
---Ktisophilos on 7/2/07

Love is even greater when the love between two persons is not restricted to themselves, but is combined and directed towards another. E.g. a family, where the husband and wife love each other, and also combine their love towards their child. For God to exemplify love in its fullest, there must be three Persons, so there is both individual and collective love. >3 is unnecessary for collective love, because it would just increase the number of persons involved, not the nature of the love.
---Ktisophilos on 7/2/07

Warwick. This is the same old con. Somehow God is holding out. There's secret information he doesn't want you to know. he's hiding the truth. And here it is again. "Brilliant minds have tried to comprehend the Trinity & failed so maybe not being brilliant I can have a go."
---jhonny on 6/25/07

ktisophilos, planes crash at intersections. Over-analyzing Jesus will bring you into doubt. Jesus is God, pure and simple. He came down and put on flesh in order to become as those whom he created, and to be sacrificed in order to redeem those in the flesh.
---Eloy on 6/25/07

Jesus is called "the exact representation of God" in Heb. 1:3. The Greek word charakter meant a two-dimensional impression of someone like the Emperor. You would know exactly what the emperor looked like from the charakter, cf. "he who has seen me has seen the Father".

A 2D representation is an intersection of 3D with a plane; Jesus is the intersection of the Godhead with the "plane" of humanity.
---Ktisophilos on 6/24/07

The Church Fathers taught that the Father and Son were related as the sun and its light. The Father sends the Son just as the sun sends the light, but the sun doesn't exist without the light. (Remember, they believed that the sun and its light were created simultaneously on Day 4, so neither existed without the other).

Thus it is impossible to honour the Father without honouring the Son (John 5:23). This entails believing that the Son is God (Heb 1:8).
---Ktisophilos on 6/24/07

Brilliant minds have tried to comprehend the Trinity & failed so maybe not being brilliant I can have a go.

Our universe-is one universe made of three very different components- space, matter & time. Three individual things make up the one universe. They can't exist on their own.

We will never confuse space, with time, or matter with space but the universe exists as one entity composed of three individual totally interdependant parts.

A perfect explanation? I doubt it but it's mine.
---Warwick on 6/23/07

Matthew, Most do not know God, for they refuse to come to him and get to know him. Therefore all that they have to say about whom they "think" is God is just that, "thoughts", "opinions", "theories", and bits of verses taken out of context called "religion". Yet the truth is, they really do not know him nor have they seen him nor have they at all talked with him. But we whom are his very own indeed know are God, and we both see him and we talk with him.
---Eloy on 6/23/07

Eloy, after knowing that this is Jesus own words and then knowing Jesus never stopped one person from woshipping Him and in many ways encouraged it, it baffles me how someone can still reject Jesus is God(not the Father). It seems most want to try to reason it out with logic which is a big no no. Can logic explain the Red Sea departing? Water turning into wine? Of course not, yet logic is embraced when confronted with the evidence Jesus is Divine. Why?

JOhn 8
58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

"I am" is one of God's most memorable self appointed title's.
---Matthew on 6/22/07

Before Jesus said that,in John 8 he said...

56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

What day was that? When God appeared to Abraham. Read Genesis 18(special notice to verse 1) that is the day the Lord appeared to Abraham and it was a wonderful day for Abraham.

Mom's metaphor: The trinity is like an orange. Jesus is the peel, The father is the fruit, the Holy Spirit is the juice, and God's word is the seeds. It is one piece of fruit, but has various parts to it. You must go through the peel to get to the fruit. One has to go through Jesus to get to the Father, as they are one. Hope that helps! God bless, and I pray God teaches you swiftly of his love and wisdom.

Hi Amber, for simplicity's sake, start with the gospel, and read what Jesus himself professed. That is, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Although not scriptural as your husband requested, I have a metaphor of sorts that my mom uses to explain it. Couple it with the gospel, and let the Holy Spirit do the rest. We can only offer the truth of God's word. It is the Holy Spirit who woos man to the Father. My metaphor to be continued in my next reply.

There is only one Lord, and his name is Jesus. When the devil tempted Jesus, "Then said Jesus to him, Go Satan, for it is written, Your Lord God will you worship, and him only will you serve." Matthew 4:10. Jesus is the Lord God who is worshipped in the Bible. Please read Matthew 2:11; 4:10; 8:2,3; 28:9; Mark 4:37-41; Luke 7:37-50; 24:51,52; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:16,17; 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.

Trinity is a non Biblical hoax. Holy Spirit is the Power of God. The trinity serves to obscure and hide the Bible truth that God is a Family, and our purpose is to be born into it. We are to become true and literal sons and daughters of God. This life is to build perfect Godly character and love. Much real estate in the universe to develop and God needs a big family to help Him with it. "He is the firstborn among many brethren." Paul said of Christ.
---James on 6/21/07

Jesus, there the trinity is explained, as trinitarians have made up the word it is nowhere in the Bible. There is the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost. These three are one in Spirit.

Hi, Carla . . . if you're saying I need to give scriptures . . . I already gave some, w - a - y down toward the bottom of this thread. What I just gave is just a follow-up.

But about Jesus not being conceited > He says He is "lowly in heart", in Matthew 11:29 > I understand that "lowly in heart" means HUMBLE; so Jesus is humble, all-loving, and "therefore" not conceited about how He is so superior to us humans.
---Bill_bila5659 on 6/21/07

Also, Jesus says "He who has seen Me has seen the Father", in John 14:9 > and Jesus is HUMBLE (lowly in heart); so by seeing how Jesus is humble, we can see, also, that our Father is HUMBLE > NOT conceited, not distant, but personally interested in each of us.

So, DOES God desire to be personally involved with EACH of us? Our Apostle Paul shares, "But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." (1 Corinthians 6:17) So, it does look like a Christian is a person who has been "joined" to God's own Holy Spirit > THIS is VERY personally involved . . . to be "one spirit with Him." So, God DOES want to be THIS intimate with EACH of us "one spirit with Him." So, He is NOT distant, but THIS personal with His children.
---Bill_bila5659 on 6/21/07

And we have, "But we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin." (Hebrews 4:15)

So, I can offer that Jesus went through things we go through, here on earth, so now He can feel for us and help us with what helped Him. He was this interested in us, that He left Heaven, itself, in order to come and share with us, like this.

Logic is a bad direction to go in. Just believe what the Bible says. Mere man shoudln't be able to understand the things of God.
---Matthew on 6/21/07

Those who do not believe are already condemned. Salvation is so much more that believing, For Satan also believes. God did not come to save this world. Neither did He come to bring peace but to bring trouble. Trouble between God's people and Satan's people. Peace between God and man, He came for, But only through His son. And there can only be peace between man and man, But only through Jesus Christ, His Son, who died only for His chosen few.++ Universal Salvation is false.
---catherine on 6/21/07

So, pagan and religiously apostate people can relate to Jesus being God. God came in the Person of Jesus to relate with us at our level, and rescue us to His level...of LOVE > how He has us loving.

Like a lifeguard going to where a drowning person is.

If wrong people say the Bible is God's word, this does not stop me from considering the Bible to be God's word. If ones paganistic can know Jesus is God, this won't stop me from believing this.
---Bill_bila5659 on 6/21/07

Jesus is not conceited; so He came to earth as a human, to reach us at our level. Jesus associated even with Pharisee hypocrites, and with pagans . . . knowing He would be considered not to be God if He associates with sinners.

But God is not conceited, not out there somewhere and distant, conceited about His superiority. But by coming here in the Person of Jesus, God shows how He wants to be personally involved with each of us humans.

If you have a theology that says Jesus is the Father then therefore there is no Father And there can be no Son because a Son cannot be his own Father, If Jesus is the Father how can he be one being and refer to himself as (us). Jesus is the salvation of the Father God's ark, he has given us the doctrine of the Son of God so through that belief we might be saved, to take away that belief is calling God a liar and we forfeit our salvation for a vain Idea.
