There’s a doctrine going around at the moment that says “no analogy can prove the trinity, and no one could ever understand the trinity”. I just want to say clearly and directly that this is false and a heresy, God want to know you and he wants you to know him fully, not in part and not amiss, but fully and deeply. This doctrine that says you can’t fully understand the trinity is not even christian, why? Because to say that you cannot understand the Godhead is to say that you cannot understand God and therefore it is not faith filled relationship Christianity, but agnostic heresy! God uses all creation and analogies to explain to us exactly who he is, see scripture below.
Romans 1:20 “For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being UNDERSTOOD by THINGS THAT ARE MADE, even his eternal power and GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse.

There’s no trinity. Jesus is God the father, God the son, God the Holy Spirit, God with us. All we need to know is the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily in Christ Jesus. Why do people think God has multiple personality disorder? I don’t talk to someone’s spirit one day, their flesh the next. I speak to the WHOLE person. Praying to Jesus is praying to the WHOLE God. A one legged tripod is worthless, do not divide God up take him as he is, WHOLE in Christ just like the rest if us.

Not only is a three-legged tripod worthless, it’s non-existent. There is such a thing as a monopod, however, and it is very useful in photography to steady a camera when there’s not a lot of space to set up, or when you have to move around a lot (look at the sideline sports photographers with the huge lenses at an NFL game).
Which just proves the point that all analogies break down at some point.

Brian Roden “man was made in the image and likeness of God” you can use that as an analogy to describe the Trinity. If that’s not good enough then I can’t help you.

not much of a doctrine if you ask me
Charles Page [10/20/2015 10:30 PM]
God has explained himself adequately in scripture! Don’t need anymore analogies.
John Kissinger [10/21/2015 2:47 PM]
David there’s no such doctrine. #justAsaying
