    Default Is there a Definition of the 'Trinity' all AGREEE on?

    Aside from 'Onness' Pentecostals- I still get what appears to be different variations- such as some think Jesus is ALSO the Father- with others that don't.

    The first commandment requires us to nourish and protect our faith with prudence and vigilance, and to reject everything that is opposed to it. There are various ways of sinning against faith:



    Voluntary doubt about the faith disregards or refuses to hold as true what God has revealed and the Church proposes for belief. Involuntary doubt refers to hesitation in believing, difficulty in overcoming objections connected with the faith, or also anxiety aroused by its obscurity. If deliberately cultivated doubt can lead to spiritual blindness.

    I'm sure the answer is more complex than just a yes or no.

    God is Holy and that means He is separate from us, He is a Mystery and anyone who claims to know either way is lying. The Bible does offer clues but is not definitive. There is evidence both ways, just enough to drive us crazy trying to understand Him. Cant we just leave this entire issue alone, celebrate the Mystery instead of trying to define Him.
    Trump's obvious lies make it impossible to believe anything he says that might be true. His presidency is falling apart fast.

    Compare THAT claim with Jesus telling us to KNOW God!

    I guess they have many variations of the Trinity Dogmuck as I suspected!

    If you'd consider..

    God = Three Persons.

    The "equation" explained.

    "God" is, essentially.. what makes God God. The "essence" of God IS God, in that it is Divine.

    The Three Persons are, INDIVIDUALLY Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Since they "share" of the "essence".

    I say the "essence" is "shared because in Scripture the Father is shown to BE "God", just as Son is shown to BE "God", just as the Holy Spirit is shown to BE "God".

    Mainly and essentially, as far as I can tell.. the "essence" being shared would mean that the term "God" encompasses Three "beings" (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) that, because they are "One", should and MUST be seen as "One God".

    That.. as far as I can show.. is the "best" definition. of Trinity.

    You may have noticed my use of "essence" as THE "common denominator" in the equation explained.

    That, again as far as I can show, best defines Who God "Is"; an "Essence".. or a "Force".. more accurately, a "Spirit", as it were.
    2Co 11:1 I wish you would bear with me in a little foolishness. Do bear with me!
