Why does god want to confuse us with trinity?

Why would he talk to himself like son talking to the father and son talking to the spirit and father talking to the spirit and son to the father?

Why would he want to confuse us and lower the possibility rate of us believing in him?

    If you understand that God is spirit, then there is less confusion.

    God originally created man in his own image. Jesus' ministry on Earth served God's plan which has many purposes.

    Jesus experienced life as a man so that we can know how God would live if he were a man. We also can't claim that God does not understand suffering. Jesus was an innocent man, so he was qualified to offer himself to die on the cross shedding his innocent blood as the law requires to atone for our sins.

    So all this has to do with God's plan for salvation.

    God's spirit conceived a Son not of natural means but as a miracle.

    The Son does not sin, so he is the perfect man.

    Jesus had the fullness of God's Holy Spirit, so he was fully God, and fully Man, not half God, half man.

    He's not trying to confuse us. He's trying to save us, and with God all things are possible.

    And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved? And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

    (Luke 18:26-27)

    So God is not trying to confuse. He is doing things His way which is doing the impossible. He knows what is going to happen since the beginning of time, and has a plan that he excecutes. Create Himself in the form of a man to redeem our souls.

    This shows how wonderful God is.

    I love to tell about it.

    The trinity is not a teaching from God. It is a indoctrinated teaching of most churches. The Church is confused and it's members. Not God and his true followers. God and Jesus are not equal. That is why he said no one knows the hour but the father. The holy spirit is God's active force which he uses to accomplish his will, ex: like in forming the heaven & earth, animals and man etc. Also use it as a helper for those earnestly seeking him, he gives it. God is the Alpha and the Omega (no beginning no end). Jesus was the first to be created by God, before all the other sons of God (angels first born or begotten. He worked along side God in the making of the earth, and animals and made Adam in their image according to Genesis. Proverbs 8:22-31 Jesus was called a master worker along side God.

    All the authority Jesus has, has been given to him by the father. Pleas read this scripture and understand? How is it they are the same and equal as the trinity teaches.

    (1 Corinthians 15:24-28) Next, the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until [God] has put all enemies under his feet. 26 As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. 27 For [God] “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that it is with the exception of the one who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.

    There is no truth in the Trinity doctrine...there is no light in a dark place. Total confusion for those believing in it.

    (Isaiah 65:13) Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: “Look! My own servants will eat, but YOU yourselves will go hungry. Look! My own servants will drink, but YOU yourselves will go thirsty. Look! My own servants will rejoice, but YOU yourselves will suffer shame.

    this is the reason that people need to go to the roots of christianity, which is hebrew. there is no trinity, three Gods in one! It is Three very separate, Holy Entities ( for lack of what word to use) The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. Elohim was the Hebrew word used many times in the old Testament, and it was replaced by the english word God. El is singular word for God, Elohim is the plural word for God. Plural means more than one. So we have a GOD FAMILY, Who are in so unison with each other they are called ONE. We see in scripture that we are told we will be forgiven of things spoken against The Father and the Son but there is no forgiveness for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. That warning tells us They are separate.

    It is not God trying to confuse us, it is the separation of the true roots of christianity, it is lack of understanding that many hebrew words were hard to translate into english and it is satan

    I don't believe that God confuses us with the trinity. I believe that man confuses us with the trinity. I believe that The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are one in purpose, but not in body. I believe that they are separate and distinct beings who all want us to come to heaven to live there.

    There was a big thing involving Constantine and the spread of Christianity in Rome where they started demonizing all the polytheistic religions, and then realized there was a problem if God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit were separate, divine entities. So, they created a confusing orchestra of doublespeak trying to say they were all actually the same entity - which is weird, when you read the parts of the Bible where they speak to one another.

    In any case, the whole polytheism scare apparently went away when the Church started canonizing Saints, entire hierarchies of angels, and the Devil in the centuries that followed, during which the Trinity became a novelty for theologians to pretend to comprehend and didn't serve much more use for the church.

    He doesn't want to confuse you, He never did ask you anywhere in His word to figure out the mystery of the Trinity. There are things we are to accept by faith. The bible tells us his ways are not our ways and that his thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Confusion comes from our being prideful not wanting to accept not knowing something.

    It takes humbleness to believe in faith and not know something

    God never said we had to figure everything out, thank God.

    He does not need people to believe in Him, we need to understand "we need to believe in Him if we want to have everlasting life and not end up in Hell. God knew we would be lost into sin eternally and could not stand the thought of living without you and me so he came to this earth in the physical body of Jesus Christ to die and be a perfect sacrifice for our sins just so that we could be with him forever!

    You don't have to figure everything out but you can enjoy what was done for us and give God thanks...

    In Christ

    The bible tells us in...1 Corinthians 14:33

    For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

    God does not teach of any trinity of Gods. The Roman Catholic does and is the blame for the confusion.

    Some critics of the Trinity doctrine claim that since the word "trinity" is not found in the Bible, it isn't true. Furthermore, some assert that if God wanted us to believe in the Trinity He would have stated the doctrine clearly.

    First of all, it is illogical to claim that since the word "Trinity" is not found in the Bible that its concept is not taught therein. This kind of objection usually demonstrates a prejudice against the teaching of the Trinity. Instead, the person should look to God's word to see if it is taught or not.

    Second, there are many biblical concepts that people believe in that don't have a specific word describing them used in the Bible. For example, the word "bible" is not found in the Bible, but we use it anyway to describe the Bible. Likewise, the words "omniscience," which means "all knowing," "omnipotence," which means "all powerful," and "omnipresence," which means "present everywhere," are words not found in the Bible either, but we use them to describe the attributes of God. We don't have to see a specific word in the Bible in order for the concept it describes to be true.

    Following are other words that the Bible does not use but the concepts are mentioned.

    •Atheism is the teaching that there is no God. "The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God" (Psalm 14:1).

    •Divinity which means divine quality or godlike character. Yet, we speak of the godlike quality of the Lord God. See Psalm 139.

    •Incarnation which means the word (God) who became flesh. Yet, this is definitely taught in the Bible (John 1:1,14).

    •Monotheism is the teaching that there is only one God (Isaiah 43:10; 44:8).

    •Rapture is the teaching that the Christians who are alive when Jesus returns will be caught up to meet Him in the air (1 Thess. 4:16-18).

    So, to say that the Trinity isn't true because the word isn't in the Bible is an invalid argument. Furthermore, to say that if God wanted us to believe in the Trinity He would have clearly taught it in scripture, is also an invalid argument. Something does not have to be clearly formulated in the Bible to be valid. Not all things taught in the Bible are perfectly clear. Take a look at the book of Revelation. It contains many things that are cryptic that must be interpreted after examining all of the Bible. Even then, there are disagreements as to what some things mean. Yet, we know that the truths there are true whether or not we discover them.

    Nevertheless, there are scriptures that demonstrate a Trinitarian aspect:

    Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (Mat. 28:19)

    The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. (2 Cor. 13:14)

    There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. (Eph. 4:4-7)

    But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (Jude 1:20-21)

    Stop trying to make God fit in a box made by men.

    Who was God talking to when he said...Gen 1: 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,?
