Father, Son And Holy Spirit Are One!
May 23, 2011 2:27am CST
I have been hearing some debates on whether the three persons of God are really one or three. Some says that there are facts in the bible that are referring that the three are just one. Some even use the analogy on the fact that a person composes of three parts namely body, soul and spirit. To learn about God is very necessary and relevant but to keep on searching about the truth on such issue is quite discouraging. Well, I just want to gather verses from the bible that can prove the truth: Father, Son And Spirit are One. Where should I start then? I really wonder whose ideas are biblical? How can these three be really one?

I believe that the Bible is not literal, but rather analogical. I believe in a collective conscious. We are all one. One universe experiencing itself subjectively, playing out every possibility. "God" is nature. We are a part of nature (despite the fact that humans are always trying to separate themselves from it), and so we are "god". I believe that the trinity is a representation of the three different narratives or points of view, ie. first person (I am), second person (we are), and third person (he/she/they is/are). The son is the experience from the first person point of view. The point of view that is often distorted by the lies of the ego. This is our physical, individual life. The "god" or universe in physical, human form. (Other animals are included in this too) The Holy spirit is the experience from the second person point of view: that great connectedness of all things. The holy spirit is the feeling inside telling what you should do. A connection from the physical "you" and the true you, that inner divinity. The father is the experience from the third person point of view. An external god that is "separate" from "us". Something greater than the human experience, so great that it can never truly be understood by the human mind. The universe "created" everything we know when it started to expand. "God" is nature, stars, the galaxy, the universe, things we don't understand. They are all "separate" points of view, but they are one. When you experience enlightenment, you experience a great connectedness with all things, a feeling of oneness with something that is infinitely greater than you, but paradoxically is you. Enlightenment is like experiencing all these points of views at once.

Its really hard to explain God in trinity but God's analogy is far different from us. You can refer to the following bible verses for clarification. First "God the Father" --John 6:27, Romans 1:7 and I Peter 1:2. Then "Jesus Christ the Son" --John 1:1,14, Romans 9:5, Colossians 2:9, Hebrews 1:8 and I John 5:20. Lastly "The Holy Spirit" Acts 5:3-4 and I Corinthians 3:16. Gos bless you!
