..ok think of it this way one orange u cut it into three pieces..its still the one same orange..just cut into three pieces now say u put the orange together..its still the orange..
this does not mean that we are three people
1 spirit, 1 body, and 1 soul..of course not!
all three are me, all three are one
God is like the sun. The sun also gives us light and heat. If there wasnt light then it wouldnt be a sun. So the light and heat are not separate entities from the sun, just as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are not separate form each other...but are all one
i hope this made sense.. :-\
GOD BLESS ALL! :-*
the way i see it is the trinity, as i hear in a very good sermon, they are three distinguishable figures, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now they all share an essence, a divine essence,we as humans share an essence, the essence of humanity, we have feelings, emoitions we are all human, we cant say to a human ur not one of us, we are many but we are all one, we cant share in this divine essence. so dont get confussed cause wen ppl say three in one they picture that their all in each other, u know??
im sorry i dont think i was clear
can someone help me out.
GOD BLESS ALL! :-*
The roots are under the ground where no one sees them. This is like God and the trunk which is above the ground and then you have the branches they are all part of the tree and are considered one tree not three trees. Therefore God is kind of the same there is the father the son and the holy spirit which are all one and belong to each other. Something like that I hope this helps.
take it this way,
God=Jesus Christ=Holy Spirit---->TRINITY
its science ;D...lol jk...
i hope u understand ;D
we all see the sun, we all know of the suns existence, now the sun is made up of three things
1 the orb.... we know that this orb exists, but its not visible so that our eyes may not comprehend it,kinda like God
2 from this orb, comes the light... that is the physical visible aspect of the orb... we see the light and we understand it and we use it as an everyday guidance to tell time and direction, etc etc... just like Jesus Christ
3 due to the strength of the light, we feel the heat. even if we're blind, we can still feel this heat... this holy spirit that works through others. the light radiates this heat for us to feel so that we may look for the source adn find the light...
hope that clarifies it for u
sun= orb + light + heat ;D
At best the Nicean Council tried to settle the doctrine of the Trinity, but realize the nature of the Godhead is a mystery that only God Himself can truly reveal. The Book of Deuteronomy tells us: "The things that are revealed belong to us--the things that are not revealed belong to God." The canonized scriptures do not clearly reveal to us the nature of the Godhead, but we do know that it is my faith that we approach God. As we approach Him in intimacy, in truth and humility He has a history of revealing Himself to those who seek Him.
When pushed for an answer while teaching in the local prison, I used the analogy that "I am one" - Wife, mother and daughter. But even that cannot fully explain God.
Visiualize a golden equilateral(that means all sides are equal...geometry...lol) triangle ABC:
also since all the sides are the same, the angels are the same 2!!
1. Angel A is not angle B or angel C, but angel A = angle B = angel C.
2. All of A, B, C equal the whole triangle. We find that each angle embraces the whole triangle.
Thus the Person of the FAther is not the Person of the SOn, nor of the Person of the SPirit. The Father is the Origin, the Son is born of HIm, and the Spirit emanates from Him. But:
The father is God.
The SOn is GOd.
The Spirit is God.
It is impossible for A to be separated from B or C. ALso it is impossible for the Three Persons to be separated from each other.
The father creates the world with the SOn and in the Holy Spirit.
The SOn redeems the world with the FAther and in the Holy Spirit.
The Holy SPirit sanctifies the world according to the will of the FAther and through the work of the SOn.
The FAther, the SOn, and the Holy SPirit are ONE God.
i hope that helped....!!!!!
thanks everyone for all the help. i understand i think but why does Jesus Christ have to use the terms father, son, holy spirit. :( ???
God used these three terms because we have human minds, we can not function unless we deffrentiate things ( may be I am wrong ). I alos had the same question before, and a lot of people told me the same thing and I got it, but most importantly pray about it.
God Bless your life
this can be explained by the example of the sun the light and the heat, all the same but with diffrent effects the light of the sun is still the sun and its heat is still the sun. God is one with 3 Akanim.
hope this will help. God bless you all.
FATHER=LIGHT OF SUN
SON=HEAT OF SUN
HOLY SPIRIT=ROUND DISK OF SUN
1 GOD=1 SUN
hope that helps
it is like this it if it take three things to make one iteam it doesn't mean you have three iteams because you need all three things to make one whole
theres only one thing to say..huh ??? ??? lol i'll have to re read that
The above analogy implies that God can be divided into three "parts." God is not a material being such that He can be divided into parts, nor do the 3 persons of God represent in someway "one third" of the Godhead. Each "person" is "100%" God in essence, simply different aspects of God's being.
My personal advice to people who are encountered by non-Christians with regards to the Trinity, is to simply say "Its a mystery" if you are not certain of what to say. We shouldnt be ashamed of this, the infinite God transcends the finite comprehension of man, into the realm of mystery, no one can deny this. Our God cannot be put into a nice neatly labelled and packaged little box, nor can he be defined succintly using human language.
This is the best and most appropriate approach to take if you are not really thoroughly acquianted with doctrine and the terminology relevant to it. If you start jumping the gun and making up your own analogies, you could indeed corner yourself, if the inquirer picks up a fundamental flaw in the analogy that you cannot explain.
i am a brother a son and a friend
im brother + A Son + A Friend = ME ;D
Father + Son + Holy Spirit = trinity
i like to think about it like that
A human being is Body, Mind (thought) and Emotions (feelings) (you can also say Body, ýsoul and spirit) both work.ý
A dead body has no Thought and no emotions. You can't have emotions and thought ýwithout a body. They are three integral parts of who we are. You can NOT separate our ýemotions from our bodies or our thoughts. We can, however, project these aspects thru ýthe different methods of communication. For example, while my thought is not ýsomething tangible that you can touch and feel, however it manifests itself on a computer ýscreen for example. You can't say, for example, that I only exist thru my posts online. ýBecause that is not me, I am more than that, but it is not something that can be separated ýfrom me either. ý
Same with God, The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. Three integral parts that can ýNOT be separated. You can say that Jesus alone, by Him self is God, cuz you would be ýmissing the other aspects or attributes. ý
On that topic, There was a picture from Egypt about a Palm tree that had three palm trees ýin it. We all know that Palm trees grow as one "branch" if you will till the top. this one ýtree had grown a few feet from the ground then split into three "branches" I will look for ýthe picture and post it. Its a good analogy to the topic.ý
I hope this helped
