Vsecret939, your idea isnt crazy at all. Here is my belief. The Bible makes many statements that are quite amazing, maybe not by todays standards, but when one reflects upon what science had available technologically back then (nothing) compared to now, some of the things mentioned in scripture could only from the creator of all things.
For instance, Columbus believed that the earth was flat, as do members of the Flat Earth Society today, scripture on the other hand speaks of the earth being a sphere,(round) and suspended from nothing.
Also science proved scripture correct again when they discovered worm holes or black holes in space, scripture stated that the universe would eventualy wear out and fold in on itself, and that it would resemble a moth eaten garment, science has proven that the universe is in fact deteriorating or falling apart, and that there are holes in it.
There are many analogies to the Trinity in the physical world.
An egg consists of 3 equally important parts- the shell, the white, and the yolk- yet all are considered as one thing, an egg.
Science has proven that time is one, yet it consists of 3 equally important aspects, the past, the present and the future.
No analogy can adequately comprehend an infinite God. Perhaps the best one, though, is Gods own description of Himself:"God is light" which is found in 1John 1:5.
Physicists know that light is comprised of three distinct yet indivisbly interrelated properties: wave, material(photons), and quantum.
Though each property reveals itself in a different way, they are nonetheless each all "light."
Likewise, light is comprised of electromagnetic waves of different frequencies. And again it falls under the number three.
At the low end of the spectrum, we have radio waves-which given in the proper transforming device, can be heard.
In the middle, we have visible waves- which can be seen.
And finally at the upper end, we have infrared waves- which can be felt as heat. Perhaps God has put the yearning to learn in man so that man could see God in His creation.
Human birth involves the womb, the egg, and the sperm.
The human being consists of the physical body, the soul, and the spirit.
There are many other things in nature that involve three components, and if any of those components were missing it wouldnt exist.
The following faiths reject the teaching of the Trinity, Hinduism, Buddism, Shintoism, Confucianism and Taosim, Islam, Judaism, Jehovahs Witness, Mormons, Christian Scientists, Seventh Day Adventists, Christadelphians, Unitarians,and the list goes on and on. Oh and lets not forget the Catholics, yes them to, as they teach that Mary is the coreedeemer with Christ, which takes it from the biblical teaching of 3 united in 1 to 4 with Mary thrown in.
If God isnt a trinity, then ask a witness why in Genesis 1:1 The Hebrew word for God is Elohiym. This is very significant to the watchfull eye, because the word Elohiym is plural. "iym" at the end is simular to our adding an s, such as in dog is one, dogs is two.
Notice further that, when God is reffered to at the creation of mankind (Genesis 1:26), the words are, "Let US make man in OUR
image." Again this refers to the plural nature of a single God, which is made clear by the grammar.
One needs only take the time to read the scriptures with an open mind, and with the help of the Councilor which is the Holy Spirit.
Scripture says that those who do not have the holy spirit, do not belong to God and are incapable of understanding the truth due to the fact that they are in the flesh. Most witnesses are taught that they cant be born again, which is why they cant see the truth, they are still in the flesh and not in the spirit. Only the 144,000 can be born again is the Societies teaching, but scripture says that one doesnt belong to God unless they are born again.
Read 1 Corinthians 2:10 - 14 and see for yourself what scripture teaches, then compare this to the Society.
As to larcs responses, Christian run, or should I say God run drug rehab centers have 3 times the sucess rate of secular man made programs. This is fact. And the ones in God run programs are 3 times less likely to have a relaps. True athiest do some wonderfull things for their fellow man, like the ACLU keeping prayer out of school, fighting the Ten Commandments in court, fighting state mottos that mention God in it. There are better things to do, like feed the hungry. Is the ACLU pushing its own hidden agandas? That doesnt sound very unselfish to me.
And last but not least, to Scorpion, I agree with you. To much time is spent on the side issues and not enough on the main one, and that is that Christ died so that we could have life. But for me to discuss the possibilty of the Trinity and to use scripture to back its teaching isnt wrong. If I were to say, Jesus Christ was just a man and nothing more, would you sit back in silence? God Bless, there is so much more that I have to say, but I have this really awesome wife and two great kids that need me to. Your right though, to much time is spent arguing over the lesser things theologically, but the trinity really isnt one of them. Once you realize the importance of the trinity as I due, you'd see the importance. But as I've said before, we are not all at the same stages in our spiritual walks, and thats cool. God is in control. Bye.
