Righto. Let's thrash this Trinity thing around. I think it is pertinent to the goodness of God.

Give me a moment to find my soap box, though. I can't make properly didactical speeches without standing on my soap box and waving my finger around pointing at the sky.

Contrary to RF's assertion, I think it would be bordering on heresy to say that one can't and shouldn't think about the Trinity. If He didn't want us to think about it He could never have mentioned it and even made another Commandment prohibiting any such considerations.

"11 ) Thou shalt not consider the Trinity!"

Anyhow, I think it makes such perfectly good sense that even if He hadn't mentioned it some clever contemplative would have surmised it eventually.

Let's begin with a concept that we can appreciate. Every one of us has some idea about ourselves that bears some more-or-less resemblance to who or what we are. However, God's idea of Himself is perfectly and exactly what He IS. The idea of self is distinct from, but not separate or separable from the self. An infinite power and intellect could not exist without knowing Who and What He is.

Is that starting to bear some congruency with "In the beginning there was God and the Word was with God and the Word was God"... or something like that. I didn't look up the exact quote; from the beginning of John's Gospel, I think.

So, there is, I think, is a rough approximation of 1 st and 2 nd Persons. Now I'm getting giddy from all the finger-waving. 3 rd Person will have to wait for another instalment.

Muslims and Jews should be starting to cringe a bit if they ever could think about it. I say that any god that is not a Trinity is a Satan pretending to be God.

Trinity should be spoken about and thought about as an aid to avoid heresy and apostasy, I suggest.
