    He is just the Father.  The Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit are three separate entities; yet they have the same purpose.  Therefore, they work in harmony for the good of all they create.

    Depends on who's myth you believe in. But probably neither. Zeus is the number one god. Everybody knows that. He killed his parents, the Titans, with the help of his two brothers: Hades and Poseidon. Oh yes, and Hades pet Kraken. Yahweh is a just a minor Sumerian wind or volcano god. Patron god of Ur and tormentor of Abraham and his family. A pretender to the throne.
    What's all this triune nonsense? wink

    God is the God Head... a relational God within himself.. homoousion and perichoresis. The Great "Iam" who is faithful to his character.

    The 'holy ghost' component of the 'holy trinity' came about as the result of a complete misinterpretation of the word 'spirit' which comes from the latin 'spiritus'.

    Spiritus means 'breath' or 'wind' or just 'moving air'. In latin versions of the Bible it replaced the Greek word 'pneuma' and the Hebrew 'ruah/ruach'. All of these words mean essentially the same thing.

    If you read your Bible you will see that the Christian God bestows gifts: such as Samson's strength, Adam's life etc, upon people via the holy 'spirit'. He literally 'breathes' upon them.

    Now if you read the Old Testament you will come across the Hebrew word 'sheol' which simply means 'grave' - the writers of the OT state, quite categorically, that when you die that is it: end of story.

    NB All of the earliest Christians considered themselves to be JEWS - not followers of a completely new religion (read your Bible).

    The proponents of the Christ Myth could not, however, 'sell' this concept to the pagans who indulged in ancestor worship and necromancy (consulting the wisdom of the dead): pagans believed that the essence of a person survived death.

    So the proponents of the new solar deity: Jesus Christ, simply incorporated pagan belief into their new doctrine and created the 'holy ghost' - by deliberately misinterpreting the scriptures - in much the same way as they built churches in places that were already considered 'holy' by the pagan population.

    Yes Yahweh/Jehovah is God the Father. Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

    In a court of law this would be called a "leading question" and be overruled and not allowed.

    It is a question begging an answer that agrees there is such a thing/being as YHWH.

    The idea of a trinity is a Christian idea, not a Jewish idea and YHWH is a Jewish concept, not a Christian one.  i.e. there is no YHWH in Christianity.

    So, on a theoretical level... No YHWH is not the Triune God because there is no such concept in Judaism.

    Yes. Once you get that degree in quantum physics, trust me, this answer makes tons of sense.
