The Holy Trinity
« on: January 26, 2020, 02:51:35 pm »
Why I think the Holy Trinity is correct. In genesis he says:

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

He says ''our'' image. If God was solely one, he would have said ''my'' image. But he said ''our''. Who are the other Gods? I think he means the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit.

I also think that the Holy Trinity is henotheistic. God as a triad created the Cosmos, BUT this doesn't mean there aren't also other Gods. Or did the Holy Trinity create other Gods too? And the ''our'' means all the Gods in general? And maybe he created female Goddesses too? Because it says ''male'' and ''female'' he created humans.
I pray that religious animosity will end.

Depends on what your definition of deity is i guess.  ;)

Defining the deity is the answer.

Well, I worship all pagan Gods and I don't exclude the christian God. (but the christian God is a God I don't like very much...)

I see, interesting.  :)

I tend to ignore the ''feminine side'' of things, as in a ''not my problem'' kind of way.

That is why most forms of modern Paganism do not work for me.

A bit of a strange area to cover, as the Holy Trinity is of Christian doctrine, which is also the God of Abraham, but God is not trinitarian in Judaism, even though it evolved from tribal polytheism.

Outside of those religions, many deities can be a triplicity. For instance, as Imbolg is only over, the goddess Brighid, for example.
