The Holy Trinity

     It would seem every Christian religion has a little bit different take on what is commonly referred to as the Holy Trinity.  All of them recognize it as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit all rolled up into one entity.  Each religion has a different explanation of its existence as well as its function.  It’s best to think of it in a bit simpler form than most would have you believe. 
     While everyone knows the concept of God the Father, many have trouble understanding the concept of a second entity as the Son.  While we refer to Jesus as The Son, we also refer to Him as God.  While He was given to us as The Son, we must remember He truly is simply a part of God the Father.  This must be so as we worship Him as a God and God the Father was pretty specific when He said, “Thou shall have no other Gods before me.”  Therefore, it is just common sense that God and Jesus are the same being.  There is no way for them to be separate beings and still honor that commandment issued by God.  I look at them as simply different aspects of the same being.  One could easily surmise from this that God gave a piece of himself to save us or an even more wonderful way to think of this is God Himself truly walked among us for a while.
     Now let’s discuss the Holy Spirit.  This I view, more or less, as Gods DNA.  Think about this.  If I have a child and that child carries my DNA.  The children of that child will also carry my DNA as will all the children of all the generations to come.  Eons from now, the child’s DNA can still be traced back to me.  Keeping all that in mind, we are all children of God, created by Him and in His image.  I believe the Holy Spirit is the little piece of Him, DNA if you will that He put in each one of us.  Bearing in mind He gave us free will, each of us has a choice whether or not to acknowledge His spirit within us.  Some will refer to it as a conscience.  Others will refer to it directly as The Holy Spirit guiding our way.  The very fact that He gives us a choice is what makes this so special.  Much more on this later.
     So there you have it.  God and His Son are just different aspects of the same being.  The Son is the part of Him that He gave in order to show us one way to get closer to Him.  His Son was the greatest gift ever given to mankind.  While some may say that greatest gift was life, a pathway to eternal life is a much greater gift.  His other great gift to us was also a piece of Himself that dwells within each of us as the Holy Spirit.  The more we accept and acknowledge these gifts the more wonderful will be our very existence.
