Reality of the often misconstrued concept of Trinity

09 September 2014, 13:14 Awe Tolulope

Up until now, people have not grasp the concept of the Trinity. Many a religious body, especially the Christians, endorse It while some of them reject It. The muslims did not believe in such claim and are often heard arguing against It.

When the Christian faithful are questioned about the Trinity, they either offer a piece of idea about It or they simply demand faith in It without an exhaustive explanation on the subject matter.

Of course, the Christian faithful knew about the revelation but they struggle with the right explanation of the concept. Hence, a convincing proof is lacking!

The Qu' ran echoes a faint evidence of the concept of Trinity, but in a frame work equivalent to the maturity of the Arab people during the era of prophet Muhammad.

It was subtle in the Qu' ran and well represented in the Jewish culture which is reminiscent to the tribulation of the latter.

Religious teachings, on the other hand, are often memorized and quoted by scholars. They spread the words in the scripture but the meanings of these messages is lacking.

These scholars energetically stamp their interpretation as the Word of God, thereby frustrating an independent investigation in the search for Truth.

Thus, the brain of religious pupils have been wired from childhood to think in the one side, biased and often hate-filled orientation it had received. Even when their conscience occassionally tell them to reconsider their mistakes, they quickly suppress it as temptation.

Errors flood the heart of many a soul, often leading to violent of a worst kind whenever a contrary view is presented to them.

Those who are tolerant of each others opinion rub mind together while those who are less tolerant switch to insult, mockery or sheer aggression.

However, the tidings of the Trinity was known to the Jews. These tidings of divine revelation reached them because they were spiritually receptive for It. Oppressions and brutal tyranny the Jews suffered in Egypt forces them to acknowledge them that no cunning can save them from the iron grip of their oppressors except God. These agony hasten their spiritual development to a point that they finally at last discern the workings of God in the most exalted form. Hence, the Trinity!

Under the leadership of Moses and prophets which follow suits, tidings of higher revelations was thus proclaim to them.

The Jews are spiritually higher than every nation near or remote to them in their spiritual development. Hence, they became the chosen race.

Without the mightier hand of God guiding the Jews, there's absolutely no possibility of hope for them. The guidance is not from a human intervention but a strict, yet loving divinity.

It was this divine Guardian that the prophets and those blessed ones who are gifted with the possibility of seeing divine pictures thus proclaim.

Therefore, the designation, Holy Spirit, the Son of Man, the Comforter are often used interchangeably to describe this divine messenger.

The Jews were able to discern the workings of God as two which they recognise as the only possibility of hope in the ensuing tribulation that threaten to wipe them out as a nation.

Unfortunately, the Jews err in their expectation of a divine messenger and therefore expect Him to conform to their wishes and human standard.

They failed to reconcile the greatness of God's Wisdom to the operation of the existing laws in the universe and therefore misconstrued the personality of Jesus Christ and ultimately reject Him.

In reality, the phrase, Son of God and Son of Man is distinct and yet personal...

A mystery which was proclaim in ancient revelations and fulfilled!
