    What Is The Trinity In Christianity?

    Stargrrlposted 2 years ago

    The trinity in Christianity is:  The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.  God is the father, Jesus is the son, and the Holy Spirit is the helper or guide to help us walk our Christian paths.

      StaR: My God! Religion has "ENGRAVED" this interpretation in ALL! Why don't Can't u see this is saying (even in English) that there are THREE Gods? You r the daughter, you r the mother, u r the wife, but is that your NAME?

      It's not just that, the trinity insinuates that the father, the son and the holy spirit are all equal which is a very pagan idea.

      Also Rod in that scripture he never said to satan , worship me , the Father and holy spirit.
      He simply says the Father.
      If people check Rev, the Holy Spirit is missing . Because it is not a person , but God’s active power to get things done.

      K&T: How could the Holy Spirit be "missing?"  GOD=HOLY=SPIRIT; JESUS JN 16:7 "IN MY NAME" Jn10:30 "I & the Father are "ONE!" How could HS be "missing?" What r u thinking? Who taught this? GOD is HOLY & SPIRIT so not "missing!"

    This is true of title The Father , The Son, but the holy spirit is his active force of power he uses to get things done. If you notice it was only after they received holy spirit that they could speak in other languages without  being educated in that day. Ac 2:3 And tongues as if of fire became visible to them and were distributed about, and one sat upon each one of them,
    Also in Greek and Hebrew there is no such word as Trinity. 
    Actually it was created of a three headed pagan god.
    which was accepted by church father's who included in their doctrines.

      The key words that let you know the Father and son are separate is the state of mind,
      They have separate wills, like a Father may like
      Steak, and son like fish.
      Jesus is clear they have two different wills.

    We have acquired a "hardened heart" when it comes to the manifestation of the "TRUTH" in God's Word!  Whatever you "MEDITATE" on, you become sensitive to and whatever you do not "MEDITATE" on, you become insensitive to! 

    Religion has "taught" us to acquire a "hardened heart" when it comes to the "...mystery that has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints." (Col 1:26: I Cor 2:7; Eph 3:9.) 

    Society "follows" what "religion" teaches and wishes NOT to "go against the grain" for if ones does they are "labeled" an idiot, unlearned, even so far as "a fool!"  John 5:44 says "How can you believe, who RECEIVE HONOR ONE OF ANOTHER, and seek NOT the honor that cometh from GOD only?" By this, "mere man" "would rather please man than God" (Gal 1:10; John 12:43; Acts 5:29) losing the opportunity for salvation! But that is Satan's job (Jn 10:10)

    When you are "truly" seeking salvation, you must do as ABRAHAM did and as stated in Romans 4:19 "And not being WEAK in FAITH, HE CONSIDERED NOT HIS OWN BODY (MIND) now dead..."  That is precisely what we have to do saints, "consider not our own teachings, traditions, religion," etc., but "WALK IN THE SPIRIT!" (Jn 4:23-24; Gal 5:16) 

    Phoenix, as far as your question is concerned, there is no such word "Trinity" in Scripture!  As Kiss &Tales stated, "...it was created of a three headed pagan god."  Unless you read the Scriptures "IN SPIRIT," instead of "the letter" only, you will continue to just "go along with the flow!"  The Father, Son & Holy Spirit is THE GREATEST ALLEGORY IN SCRIPTURE!

    Here comes the real craziness!  GOD is a Spirit Who is Omnipresent!  THE SPIRIT is beyond "mere man's" understanding!  The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are ALL of God's GLORIES!  Scripture was written so "mere man" could relate to a father, son and other glories (titles) men have yet they still can not relate to THE SPIRIT operating in ALL GLORIES while in every other place. THE SPIRIT (GOD/Creator/JESUS), Son (JESUS/Manifesation of Himself in the flesh, while remaining every place), and the Holy Spirit (JESUS/The Comforter whom He has sent to teach & guide us, while remaining every place)!  Crazy?  Not so, if "IN THE SPIRIT!"

    Religion  says "The Trinity" consists of three beings/persons. What? Three persons/beings?  In the English langauage, that would make  three gods! Col 2:9 says "For in him (JESUS) dwelleth ALL the fullness of the Godhead bodily!" 

    GOD is What He is, but JESUS is Who He is!

    Because spirit -- god is spirit and they who worship him must do it in spirit and truth -- is the maker of all things spirit is father. 

    Because man means "mind able to comprehend all things" man's mind is the son seeking to know and do what it sees father do. 

    Holy mean "complete" and ghost means "having the power to appear and disappear at will and go through solid objects" -- Yoshua's entering the locked room of his disciples -- so reborn man who obtain the knowledge and power Jesus demonstrated are Holy Ghosts (John 14:12). 

    All three are in each one of us.

    The "trinity" is a fiction. The NCV explains in a footnote about 1 John 5:7-8, "A few very late Greek copies and the Latin Vulgate continue, 'in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three witnesses agree.'" So, a scribe added the words and that led to this "trinity" nonsense.

    God is the Father, because He created it all. Jesus is a Son of God, just as David was a Son of God. But Jesus was special, because he was spiritually awake when he was born of the flesh in that lifetime. The Holy Spirit is potentially in each of us. It is the True Self -- the child of God within. When we are in spirit, we too are Sons of God.

    The Holy Spirit can be thought of as the manifestation of God's power in the world. So, the burning bush, the inspiration of prophets, the power behind miracles this is the Holy Spirit.

    There is a similar concept in Judaism called the Shekhinah, which is God's spirit "indwelling" physically in the temple, and in Islam called al Dhat, the "essence" of God.

    So, actually, in terms of the Middle Eastern group of traditions, the Holy Spirit makes sense, and it's the literal incarnation of Jesus that sounds crazy. For that, you have to look to the influence of the Greeks, and the fairly common idea of humans descended from gods.
