I have had the opportunity to speak to fellow blogers about the doctrine of the trinity. I don’t think it appears to be logical, and this is not merely because my personal beliefs don’t concord with the idea of the trinity. I just don’t see any logic in it, and nor do I see much biblical evidence.
To clarify, this is a post that has only intention on discussing if it is conclusive that the idea of a trinity could possibly be logical
I have been looking over some of the comments made by Christ about him and the father…and it’s interesting what occurs when you use logical patterns to establish a basis…
1. The son can do nothing by himself
2. He can only do what he has seen the father do.
3. Therefore, if the son is the father, then the son must do what he has already done.
4. A event that is the result of a cause that has not occurred cannot exist.
5. Therefore, son as the father and the father as the son cannot exist as one entity.
1. The Father loves the Son, then the father loves himself?
2. If that is true, then the son, the father also love the spirit
3. If the antecedent is true then God loves himself.
4. Self love is proportional to pride and self-admiration.
5. Therefore, God is not all good.
1.the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son
2. The previous commits an obvious contradiction
3. All logical contradictions are false (definition)
4. “A kingdom divided against itself can not stand”
5. Thus, God cannot exist according to (1-4)
1. The Father has granted the Son to have life in him
2. Thus, God has granted himself life.
3. If 2 is true then the son has granted himself life (resurrection).
– If life comes from God, and the son then 1 is not a necessary statement and commits contradiction.
1. I seek not to please myself but him who sent me
2. If 1 is true, then God is only seeking to please himself.
3. 1 is not true because God cannot seek to please himself.
Here are the biblical supports of the previous argument-
Why do you call me good? No one is good–except God alone. [Mk 10:18, Lk 18:17, Mt 19:17]
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. [Mk 13:32]
And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. [Lk 12:10]
Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done. [Lk 22:42-43]
Father, into your hands I commit my spirit. [Lk 23:46]
the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son [Jn 5:22]
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. [Jn 5:30]
I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. [Jn 8:28]
I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. [Jn 8:42]
If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father who is glorifying me, of whom ye say that He is your God. [Jn 8:54]
Thus, to conclude, I assert that from logic the trinity is paradox and commits Fallacy, Ambiguity, and Contradiction. If God is full of truth-which must affirm logic, then the trinity cannot exist.
This is only further demonstrated as follows:
1. If God is omnipotent and omniscient, then God would be able to use his omniscient and omnipotent abilities to achieve a state of absolute perfection. (premise)
2. If God is absolutely perfect, then he must be omni-benevolent. (premise)
3. If God is Omni-benevolent, then confusions and deceptions cannot occur.(premise)
4. If God cannot cause deception, then situations of conflict, fallacy, contradiction and misinterpretations cannot occur according to his truths. (premise)
5. Thus, if God is omnipotent, omniscient and omni-benevolent, then only truths that lack conflict, fallacy, contradiction and misinterpretations are truth (1-4)
6. The trinity is a supposed truth that exhibits conflict, fallacy, contradiction and misinterpretations. (premise)
7. Thus, the trinity cannot be true. (4,5)
