That's right. I am still waiting for more explanation.

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Nuray does not understand the ABC of the Trinity

Submitted by Nuray (Germany), Sep 17, 2006 at 08:17

Dear Rajesh,

That's right I don't understand the trinity. This is not because I am not Christian or I am Muslim. Just my modern mind speaks so. I am sure many questions has arisen since the concept of trinity is written down . I am not the first or will be the last one.

Thanks for giving so many references to read on trinity but I am more interested on how living people think about it, or how are they convincing themselves? Because if you don't understand something you can't defend it. Until now, some genuine believer try to explained but I found non of them was convincing. Fingers of a hand or different colors emerging from a prism are given as examples to show different manifestation of God. I am still waiting for such examples to understand how people grasp trinity.

Trinity is man made theory. Because it relates humans to God. A selected person,Jesus, becomes a part of God. The others are called as the children of God. Limits of humans are taken into account and then an imaginary character, who are not seen visually but affects the humans, holly ghost is added to humans-God relationships. Well-casted play indeed.

Muslims show better respect to God than Christians do. They call people who communicate with God as messengers. Messengers, as their names imply they only conveyed the message of God. Muslims never worshiped their Messengers. They didn't change the message of God. This is how it should be.

I have a free advice for you. If you write

"They were raised thousands of years ago (thousands of years ago sounds good!) and properly answered."

that means you seem to be a little bit lazy about the learning and describing the pillar of Christianity. How can a modern mind at 21st century accept and recommend the earlier discussions made several centuries ago?
