Draw an infinite circle, this is God; within this circle define three areas (father, son, holy spirit); are they all limited manifestations of the same infinite God?

I guess I always looked at the Trinity the same way I see myself -- I am a husband, a son, and a father. None of these identities come into conflict with each other, and yet they are all equally true. They sum up the vast majority of who I am, they reflect my relationship with the world around me, in separate but equal ways.

Guess I'm with you, Sean. It's never been a concept I've wrestled with.

Leave it to the atheist to come up with the simplest and most elegant explanation of the trinity I've ever heard!

The theology has not caught up with the technology.

I believe Jesus was someone who stretched the faith of those around him. He constantly dared people to see things differently, to act differently and to live differently.

Feel free to borrow that one, I will be inventing a simpler one when I start my own church.

Of course, you're not your own father. That's why, when it mattered to me, I preferred son of man to son of god.
