The Easiest Way To Explain The Trinity


The doctrine of the Trinity states that there is one God who eternally exists as 3 equal and distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Many Christians find this difficult to explain, but here are some Scriptures that will help you explain it to people where they can understand it.

The Whole Godhead is physically manifested to people in one Passage of Scripture

Matthew 3:16-17 “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

  1. Jesus (God the Son) is standing in the water
  2. God the Holy Spirit physically appears as a dove
  3. God the Father Speaks from heaven

This is the best Scripture to show that God eternally exists in 3 distinct persons.

Best Scripture to show that God is one.

1 John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”

This verse is taken out of many other Bible versions except the KJV including the NIV. Therefore, these other versions weaken the doctrine of the Trinity. This is a serious error because a person cannot be saved without believing that Jesus is God.

Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

1 John 4:2-3 “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”

2 John 1:7 “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”

Jesus is the Word. John 1:1-3 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” And John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

And, Yes Jesus Himself said He was God.

John 10:30 “I and my Father are one.”

Winning The Battle For Your Mind

Win The Battle For Your Mind

Many Christians struggle with unhealthy or sinful thoughts and feelings. Like thoughts and feelings of guilt, worthlessness, anger, lust, worry etc.

The Bible tells us how to overcome destructive thoughts like these.

Cast sinful or unhealthy thoughts down and put them under subjection to Christ

2 Corinthians 10:5 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

How to do this:

Command the thought to go away in the Name of Jesus Christ

This is the initial casting down and subjecting the bad thought to the obedience of Christ.

As Christians we have power over sin and the Devil in the Name of Jesus. Most bad thoughts are just lies that the Devil is telling us, especially when it comes to self destructive thoughts like guilt or worthlessness.

The Devil wants to destroy us. the Bible says that he walks around like a lion looking for people to devour. ( 1 Peter 5:8) He does not want us to be joyful Christians, so he will whisper many lies into our ears to make us sad.

We do not have to suffer his torments!

We have the power in the Name of Jesus to cast down Satan’s lies and him. Just command them to leave in the name of Jesus.

John 14:12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

Then pray and ask God to keep bad thoughts away.

John 16:24 “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

John 14:13 “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”

1John 5:14-15 “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”

Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

James 1:6-7 “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.”

it is God’s will for our joy to be full, so He will keep bad thoughts away, if we ask Him too, and believe that He will.

Then replace the bad thoughts with good thoughts

Here are 3 easy ways to do this:

1. Claim God’s promises:

If you are struggling with guilt:

Remember if you have repented, then God has forgiven you, and He will never mention your sin, not even on judgment day.

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Confession includes repentance. See my post on 1 John 1:9 at

1 Corinthians 11:31 “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.”

Judging ourselves means that we repent of our sin before God has to judge us. Not that we punish ourselves or keep telling ourselves how bad we are. Once we repent we need to believe that God has forgiven us and then forgive ourselves, and move on with our lives serving God.

Ezekiel 18:21-22 “But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.”

1 Corinthians 6:11 “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

Justified means: Just As If I’d Never Sinned.

If God has justified us, and He is not going to mention our sins again, we should not rebuke ourselves for them anymore either.

If you are struggling with thoughts of worthlessness:

Remember God loves you, and you are so valuable to Him that He sent His only begotten Son to die for you to save you. As Christians, God says we are his children, we are more than conquerors, and we are royalty!

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Romans 8:15 “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” Abba in Hebrew is an endearing term like “Daddy.”

Romans 8:37 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Revelation 1:6 “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

So hold your head up and live a holy and joyful life like the priest and the king or queen God says you are.

If you are struggling with thoughts of anger:

Remember not all anger is sin, but it becomes sin if we dwell on it too long. The Bible says that we are to forgive and get rid of our anger before the sun goes down that day.

Ephesians 4:26-27 “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.”

Furthermore, we must forgive others in order for God to forgive us.

Luke 6:35-37 “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:”

Now, forgiveness does not equal trust. Forgiveness means you are no longer angry with the person. It means you do not hold a grudge against them. However, if the person is a danger to you or others you need to put up barriers to keep yourself and others safe from them.

Also, remember that God will avenge you.

Romans 12:19 “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”

If you are struggling with immoral thoughts:

Remember we have power over sin in the Name of Jesus, and God promises to give us what we ask for according to His will. It is God’s will for us to have pure minds. Command the sinful thoughts to go away in the Name of Jesus and Pray and ask God to renew your mind and keep sinful thoughts out.

2 Corinthians 10:5 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

James 1:5-8 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

If you are struggling with worry:

Remember if you are saved God will never leave you and He cares for you. Furthermore, if you are striving to live for Him and are giving to others then He will meet your needs.

Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

Philippians 4:16-19 “For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

2. Sing and Praise God

Listening to Christian music and singing Christian songs will help you to keep your mind on God. If you keep your mind on God, it is much harder for sinful or unhealthy thoughts to come in.

Ephesians 5:19-20 “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”

Writing a list of your blessings will also help you to have an attitude of thankfulness.

3. Help others

Getting your mind off of yourself and helping others is a great way to keep bad thoughts away.

Romans 15:2 “Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.”

Acts 20:35 “I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

4. Think about good things

Actively thinking about good things will help keep bad thoughts away.

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

God wants us to be joyful and have pure minds. By following these steps you can achieve that.

Unmarried Adults Belong To God Not Their Parents

I was raised that an unmarried adult person (especially a woman) is still under the authority of her father until she gets married. That contradicts the Bible.

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 7:32 -34:

“But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:
33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.”

The unmarried answer to God not their parents. They are to be concerned with pleasing God not their fathers.

You have no right to tell your adult daughter or son that they have to stay home with you or that they cannot get a job, go to college, move out on their own etc. That is between them and God.

The Bible only says married woman are to be keepers at home, not unmarried women.

I Timothy 5:11-15

11 “But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
13 And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.”

Younger women is directly referring back to younger widows!

It also only advises that young widows should marry, not that every woman has to marry.

The Bible Even Says That If the World Is Really Evil Like It Is Now, Then It Is Best Not To Marry, But It Is NOT A Sin If You Do Marry.

1 Corinthians 7: 26-28:

26 “I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.
27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.”

Once your child is an adult, you have no right to tell them how they can or cannot serve God. To do that is to step into God’s jurisdiction and it is cultish!

Years ago my Dad even tried to twist Scripture and tell my brother that he had to stay home until he got married because the Bible says a man is supposed to leave his Father and Mother and cleave to his wife. So he would be in sin and rebellion against God if he left home before he got married.

We thought that he was probably wrong, but we really did not know any Scripture to prove it at that time.

Finally God removed our Dad from our home 12 years ago, and we have been free from him since then.

A few years ago God showed us the truth in 1 Corinthians 7:32 -34.

The New Testament says unmarried adults (both men and women) answer to God, not their fathers!
