The Father, Son and Holy Ghost

The Doctrine of the Trinity.

Webster’s New world dictionary 1989, defines the trinity as: 1) The condition of being three or threefold; 2) A set of three persons or things that form a unit; 3) The union of the three (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) in one Godhead.

Definitions 2 and 3 are basically the same, with the unit being the Godhead, just as a president and two assistants of an organization are a unit or as a board of directors is a governing unit.

Jesus gave the same concept of the three personages in the Godhead in, John 14:21, . . . and he that loveth me shall be love of my Father, and I will love him.

And verse 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, . . .

And in John, Chapter 17:20-21 Neither pray I for these (disciples) alone, but them also which shall believe on me through their word. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: . . .

Thus the Godhead, is a unit of three persons,  and the term God may be better understood as being a unit composed of three distinct divine personage that are in perfect harmony one with another, beyond harmony that mortals know.



Anciently, at Steven's, martyrdom, "he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,

 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.  Acts8:55-56.

Three distinct personages, but perfectly united - the unit of the Godhead. The Father and the Son with glorious immortal physical bodies, while the Holy Ghost, as the name states, is only a Spirit.




Gordon B. Hinckley (1910-2008), former president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and prophet of the Lord has said:

They are distinct beings, but they are one in purpose and effort. They are united as one in bringing to pass the grand, divine plan for the salvation and exaltation of the children of God.

… Christ pleaded with His Father concerning the Apostles, whom He loved, saying:

"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

"That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us"  (John 17:20–21).

It is that perfect unity between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost that binds these three into the oneness of the divine Godhead.

Every system, whether molecular, individual or society, without outside intelligent direction will gravitate to chaos. God is the source of intelligence.

This is such a great article - thanks! I believe a call to action is what we all need - religion is action not a passive reading assignment. Thanks
