Gods Being: trinityThe Trinity reinforces my faithOnly the Trinity explains loveAll sorts of people are fond of repeating the Christian statement that God is love. But they seem not to notice that the words 'God is love' have no real meaning unless God contains at least two persons. Love is something that one person has for another person. If God was a single person, then before the world was made, He was not love. C.S. LewisGods Being: trinityThe Trinity reinforces my faithOnly the Trinity explains loveWhy expect to fully understand God?For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts Isaiah 55:8-9Gods Being: trinityThe Trinity reinforces my faithOnly the Trinity explains loveWhy expect to fully understand God?Bring me a worm that can comprehend a man, and then I will show you a man that can comprehend the Triune God. John WesleyGods Being: trinityThe Trinity reinforces my faithOnly the Trinity explains loveWhy expect to fully understand God?We are speaking of God, what marvel if thou do not comprehend? For if thou comprehended, He is not God.
