Humans often think that God is like a man since, it is written Genesis 1:27 (NIV) “So God created mankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27 NIV) Theologians often want to apply the characteristics of God to men and women to illustrate the likeness. However, the very simplest comparison it the one overlooked. As a result, humans have a distorted view of God as a result of Satan’s deception. Many disbelieve in the concept of a Trinity, three Gods in one altogether. People have developed this notion of an old white-haired breaded man as God, which is more of a picture of Zeus than of the Great “I Am.” Therefore when many non-Christian Faiths hear of the word Trinity they hear Three Gods, not one. Many theologians have gone about explaining this mystery but ignore two straightforward illustrations to provide a clue for understanding the Trinity.

Let us begin our examination into the idea of a Trinity from the standpoint of God’s created image man. Humans have three bodies in one mental, emotional and physical bodies. We shall begin our investigation first with the Mental Body or consciousness. What scientist can determine the height, and depth of consciousness? Next is the emotional body with all of its various expressions of feelings, love, joy, happiness, and sorrow to name a few. Finally, the first two are encased in a physical body. We often hear stories of individuals have out of body experiences when the conscious and emotional bodies leave the physical! We can only guess if the two depart from the frame on a journey during sleep, in what we call a dream. Therefore humans are trinity beings.

n today’s society, we have arrived of a new form of self-glorification the taking of a selfie, the taking of a photo, of yourself, by yourself for your joy and satisfaction. In doing this, you are creating an image of yourself, but this image is not yourself. This image in many cases is two dimensional and not able to move. In a video recording, the image is still two dimensional and cannot escape from the disk. The picture is not you nor is it a total representation of who you are and what you can do. It is only a likeness of you. 

Having examined the human trinity lets apply it to God. First, since God is the creator he can do anything, He wishes. His consciousness has no boundaries and can hear the thoughts of every living creature. Next God not only has emotion he is the emotions; he of love, joy, happiness, and sorrow and every other feeling. Finally, he can occupy a body. Some people think that God cannot employ a body because he is to vest to do so. However, my mind is more significant in dimension than my body. Since man can under a specific condition have an out of boy experience can God do it at will? Here is an example of how simple God can be in three places as three different people at one time. Poly location to manifest himself in three different forms as three distinct beings. It is the one thing we created in His likeness cannot do. As the image in the photo cannot come out of the picture nor can we separate our trinity body into three distinct beings.

Before we close on this simple explanation of the Trinity, God has provided one more example of a Trinity, water. H2O is invisible to the eye, and it surrounds us daily as a gas, a mist, that becomes visible as a cloud. While H2O is in its gases form, it can also be a liquid below the fog of the sky in the oceans, lakes, and rivers. It can flow and move like the moisture in the wind, and it can also seem as icebergs floating in the oceans; three different states of H2O. 

So you see we are a trinity created in God image and likeness but with limited ability unable to poly locate in three distinct forms at the very same time.
