I’ve a Muslim friend who is inquiring about our concept of the Holy Trinity. I’ve explained it the best I could using the familiar “water” analogy…but I’m not sure how to respond to his reply.
Ben Rosa: I have heard it explained in a simplified analogy to water, in that God the Father is like steam, everywhere filling an area, that God the Son like ice, something solid that can be touched, and God the Holy Spirit like liquid water, raining down upon the earth as love. All three existing in different forms, but yet, of the same substance.
[size=4]**My Muslim friend: ** If i were to follow that logic that you’ve just presented above. But naturally Jesus would know the last day and the last hour, but he didn’t. So how is the trinity logically maintained as three in one god head when one of the gods doesn’t know when the final hour will be? If they are suppose to be all exual, why does one of the “Equal” gods in the god head saying “I can of my own self do nothing.” This just tells me that they are not all equal and they do not all share the same knowledge.

[font=Arial][size=2]I’m not sure what he is refering to by “the last day and the last hour”. Also, I remember the quote of Jesus something like the one provided, but can’t remember what He is refering to.[/size][/font]
[font=Arial][size=2]Thanks in advance for any and all guidance.
May His peace be with you…
