about trinity

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Trinity to Saladin

Submitted by kr (United Arab Emirates), May 22, 2006 at 00:27

reminds me of something i heard from an ex-priest:

someone told him trinity was like an apple: the fruit, the peel, and the pit. so the ex-priest says : what if there were several pits? and what if there were worms in the apple?

then someone said: trinity was like an egg: the white, the yolk, and the cover. so the ex-priest says : what if the egg had two yolks.

what i want to know is, if you Christians believe Jesus is God or the son of God, then how can you believe he was crucified? can God get crucified? can humans overpower God. and if you say Jesus isn't God but the son of God, then won't that make him another god? isn't a human's son another human?

which means you believe that there are two gods, but the younger god was overpowered by humans and killed? all this is very confusing.
