God, the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit

“For there are three that bear record in heaven,  the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” I John 5:7

How do you explain the Trinity to someone who thinks you worship three gods?

Luke 3:22 “The Holy spirit descended in bodily form like a dove on Him (Jesus) and a voice came from Heaven which said, “You are my beloved Son in  whom I am well pleased.”

When Jesus, the Son, was getting baptized, the Father spoke out loud. Then the Holy Spirit came down from Heaven like a dove. I can see the Trinity there.

And I see the Trinity in the creation.

Genesis 1:1 God created. (The Father or the Son)

1:2 “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

1:26 “Let us make man in our image.” I believe the “us” is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

How do you explain it?

What about this example? Water is a liquid. When it’s  frozen, it becomes ice. Boiled water is steam.

This, too, is a little hard to understand for certain people in the world who have no refrigeration and have never seen ice. But it’s an interesting illustration because water can be in different forms but still have the same chemical properties.

God Almighty is the Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Each one has the same characteristics. Each is omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent.

But I’d love to hear how you explain the trinity to someone?

    I’m not sure we humans can explain the Trinity. We have to accept it. We can’t really explain a lot of other things, such as gravity and falling in love, to name two.
