The Holy Trinity is Scriptural...


The Holy Trinity: He who will try to understand the Trinity fully, will lose his mind, but he who denies the Trinity will lose his soul.


How can man fully comprehend GOD's infinite make-up when he cannot fully comprehend his own finite make-up?: **Gen 1:26-27,3:22, *Gen 11:7, Deut 6:4, Isa *6:3,8,9:6-7, Psa 2:7, Mt 3:16-17,10:20,17:5,28:19, Mk 1:9-11, Lk 1:35,3:21-22, Jn 3:35-36,14:26,15:26, Act 5:3-4, *Act 17:29 (KJ) Rom 1:20, *1Cor 12:4-6, *2Cor 3:17, *2Cor 13:13, Eph 1:2, Col 2:9, Phil 2:11, 1Thes 5:23-24, Tit 2:13, **1Jn 5:7


The Holy Trinity acts in unity in glory: Lk 10:20, 1Cor 15:all, Phil 3:21, Rev 22:17

The Holy Trinity (Tri-Unity) Doctrine: in its barest outline, 1Jn 5:7-8

 1. In the one divine nature, there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
 2. No one of the persons is either of the others, each is wholly Himself.
 3. The Father is GOD, the Son is GOD, the Holy Spirit is GOD.
 4. They are not three GODS but one GOD. They are distinct but are NOT separate. Where one is, all are.
 5. The Holy Trinity, one GOD, and three divine persons, functions in an individual yet collective way:
1Cor 12:4-6.



A Word, (the Son) does not exist without a Speaker (the Father), and one cannot be a Speaker without a Breath (the Holy Spirit); just as the Word cannot exist without a Breath. Thus GOD acts as one. He does not send the Son independently from the fullness of the divine nature. It is the Father and the Son and the Spirit doing the speaking. It cannot be otherwise, since They are consubstantial in Their divinity.
