Trinity plus Humanity

I’ve been thinking and conversing more about the Trinity concept.  I watched a video the other day that attempts to make more sense of the Trinity but only ends up revealing how the concept is paradoxical and that essentially you must submit and have faith that it is true, rather than actually bringing understanding of how the concept actually functions.

In the ongoing conversation I am having that I referred to in my recent posting (Trinity minus Jesus), I was questioned whether I was implying that humanity is part of the Trinity.  I suggested that yes, that is a way it can be looked at.

Father = External

Son = Inter-personal (humanity)

Holy Spirit = Internal (personal connection to the external)

Besides, man was created in the image of God according to the Bible (Genesis 1:27).  Image means exact likeness.  You can’t get much closer to being a part of God than by having been made the same as God.

Here’s a snippet of Jesus speaking about the most important commandments:

29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” ~ Mark 12:29-31

Is this not further evidence that humanity belongs in Jesus’ supposed place in the idea of the Trinity?

Love God.  Love humanity.  These are the most important things to keep in mind, well, according to Jesus anyways.

    Thinking of the Trinity as Wisdom, Love, and Power, we can see a human reflection of that as creativity, compassion and self control – attributes we could well aim for. We can see them reflected again in a more basic way as reasoning ability, emotion, and willfulness.
