Healthier Trinitarianism

Much better than liquid, ice, gas…

One biblical picture of the Trinity is that the Father is the speaker…, the Son is the word he speaks (John 1:1-14; Rom. 10:6-8 [alluding to Deut. 30:11-14]; 2 Cor. 1:20; Heb. 1:1-3; 1 John 1:1-3; Rev. 19:13), and the Spirit is the breath that carries the word to its destination (Ps. 33:6…)  – John Frame in The Doctrine of God

One thought on “Healthier Trinitarianism”

  1. For awhile, I’ve ‘comprehended’ the Trinity in this light:

    We are created in the image of God. So it makes sense to me to take our three parts and compare them to the persons in the Trinity. Body is analogous to Christ; Spirit is analogous to the Holy Spirit (go figure); and Soul (mind, will, and emotions) is analogous to the Father. My three distinct parts come together to make me, me; just because the parts are distinct does not make them any less me. This is an image of God on the human level.

    Am I crazy? Missing something? Anything of the sort?
