I invite thoughts on this line of thinking, especially from Muslims.
BTW, today the Catholic Church honors in a particular way the Most Holy Trinity.
Muslims who visit this site, peace be upon you, probably already have heard that the Christian Church teaches that it worships one God, yet, we speak of this God as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Not three gods, not three parts of one God, but three persons in one, single God. I can’t explain how God accomplishes this miracle, but I think that I can make the existence of the Trinity to be reasonable:
God is love. That’s the key. God *is *love. Love is an essential component of the nature of God.
So, consider the limitless eternity before God created the heavens and the earth. God was completely alone. Yet, God is love. A characteristic of love is that it exists in a shared relationship. It’s okay for me to love myself, but too much self love is unhealthy. Moreover, if I love myself, but I am only one person, how can I return that love?
Thus, we can see that it is reasonable, perhaps even necessary, for a God Who is Love, to be able to give and receive love. In fact, God has revealed to us that, yes, He does have that relationship. It is the relationship of a Father and a Son. So, within the one God, God is the Father Who gives love and the Son Who returns it.
The Church describes the Holy Spirit as the bond of love between the Father and the Son. Moving to an example of a husband and wife who love each other deeply, we can see that their marrage takes on a life of its own. It is not just Mr. X and Mrs. X, but the marraige of Mr. and Mrs X, which becomes like a new person. In fact, a strong marraige has the power to inspire us to try and be more loving ourselves, which is exactly what the Holy Spirit does in Christian understanding.
Therefore, we see that the Trinity–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit-- is a natural way that God expresses His nature of Love.
