The Trinity can be considered one of the most significant doctrines of the Christian faith. While it has been often attacked by people who have held other beliefs, and it has been alleged that it is not a Biblical doctrine due to the fact that the word “Trinity” is not mentioned in The Bible, the doctrine, according to Christians is, at least in substance, Biblical.



At the outset we must state the study of The Trinity, because it discusses the nature of The One, true God, is holy ground and the doctrine itself can be known only by divine revelation. Human reason is incapable of fathoming it. It was God’s Will to reveal to humanity His inner working. According to mainstream Christianity, the doctrine, having been revealed to mankind through Scriptures, is far from being the result of human reasoning.



To define The Trinity according to the teachings found in The Bible, we have to first make it very clear that there is only One eternal God, Who is the Creator and Sustainer of...

A monolithic God cannot experience this.

Trinity is the most deceiving of all deceptions.
Can you explain why? Just because the word Trinity, which means one God in three Divine Persons, is not found in the scriptures the description of it is.

1 John 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

I know what you mean, however...

One God is three persons is not the Trinity.

That is modalism or oneness.

That’s actually heresy.


The Trinity is just what the scripture you quoted says.


Three Divine Persons are One.


Not one God in three.

There is only one God who exist in three distinct persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit as it's all God's spirit as the word made flesh (Jesus) and our comforter and teacher (Holy Spirit).
