Well, I for one don't think I could explain the trinity to the degree that Cofty would like. If mystery is a cop out for the trinity, it would also have to be a cop out for the virgin birth of Jesus too. How would you define a being that has no beginning too? Explain how Jesus [and others] could ascend to heaven. How about healings that defy logic? Too much to try to explain to someone who has no knowledge of Jesus and his church.
So why am I a believer of this unlikely [and unexplainable] faith?
For me it's the history and the fruits. 2000 years of a lineage that goes directly to Jesus. He promised that HIS church would last all ages. The way that so many people HATE the church, yet it still remains. And it always will, or Jesus is a lying fool.
How about the fruits? No one can deny the real fruits that every other faith and civilization tries to copy and even take credit for. I'll be a brief as possible.
Universities/colleges. Never a system if school in the world that was promoted worldwide. As a result, the Church actually invented the scientific method.
Hospitals- Never a hospital anywhere before the church started building them. Nurses? All nuns working the hospitals.
Orphanages? Yup Catholic Church fruit .....Old age homes,....food banks....battered wifes shelters, .. homeless shelters...etc, etc
And as a result, the Church was the first to institute and promote civil rights for all and promotes that also worldwide.
just saying...that I cannot explain the mystery of the trinity, but I can see the real and true fruits givin to us all from the Church that Jesus started.
