The word trinity does not appear in the Bible, but that does not nullify its validity.  There are several other words or phrases that do not appear in the Bible.  Second coming, rapture, demonic, and satanic are just a few words that are readily accepted in biblical conversations, but are not in the bible.  When I make reference to the Bible, I am referring to the King James Version Bible.

            Trinity is used when talking about the three fold nature of God.  It is true, there is only one God; but there are three distinct entities.  There is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.  They are three different offices but they are all one; the same.  Here is an example to show a little clarity:  My name is Charles.  I am Charles the Father of my children; Charles the Son of my father; and Charles the husband to my wife.  I am one (the same) person, just fulfilling three different capacities.

            Most people do not have a problem with God the Father (heavenly father) and God the Son (Jesus Christ).  The problem surfaces when one mentions God the Holy Ghost (Spirit).  Sometimes the Holy Ghost is referred to as The Comforter; John 14:26, “but the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost…..”   The Holy Ghost is the disembodiment of Jesus after his death; much like a ghost is the disembodiment of a natural person after his death.

            Before Jesus was crucified, he told the disciples that he would send them a comforter after his death; John 16:7, “… is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”  The Comforter is God the Holy Ghost who comforts mankind after the death of Jesus.

            God the Father is a spirit; John 4:24, “God is a Spirit…..”  He is invisible and he is creator of all things; Gen. 1:1, “in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”  Man was separated from Him because of Adam’s sin.  Jesus Christ is God the Son.  He was visible and his role was to be a mediator between man and God; 1 Tim. 2:5, “…..there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”  The Comforter is God the Holy Ghost.  The Holy Ghost is a spirit; therefore invisible.  This is the ghost or spirit of Jesus and his role is to remind mankind of the teachings of Jesus; John 14:26, “…..he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”.

            Trinity is not three gods; it is one God; witnessed in three different roles.  Even Jesus himself mentioned these three distinctly separate roles; Mt. 28:19, “… the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
