Shield of the Trinity

I have always been fascinated with stained glass windows.  As a youth, I would sit in church and examine the windows and wonder how they made them.  As I grew older, I realized that the windows were telling a story and that is when Bible stories became important to me.

Here is a picture of a stained glass window.  It is called the “Shield of the Trinity”.

Many people have trouble understanding the “Trinity”, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  Some believe that this is three separate persons.  I guess that is why the study of theology is difficult for some.  It takes a tremendous amount of brain power and understanding to wrap your head around some theological thoughts.

God is in the middle.  The Father is in the position of honor (top left).  The Son and the Holy Spirit are in the remaining nodes.

Deus est Pater.  Deus est Filius.  Deus est Spiritus Sanctus.   

God is the Father. God is the Son. God is the Holy Spirit.

Pater non est Filius.  Filius non est Spiritus Sanctus.  Spiritus Sanctus non est Pater.                                                                                                            

The Father is not the Son.  The Son is not the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not the Father.

This is not intended to be a diagram for God, but rather a compact device to read.

God is the Father. God is  the Son. God is the Holy Spirit. The Father is not the Son. The Son is not the Father. The Son is not the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not the Son.  The Holy Spirit is not the Father. The Father is not the Holy Spirit.

Sometimes trying to explain things can be a little difficult.  Understanding can be even more difficult.

One Response to Shield of the Trinity

  1. It is interesting that we both posted on the same day using the same stained glass window as an inspiration. I would be pleased to think that my post encouraged your expansion of the theme. I will amend my post to link to yours and would appreciate if you would link to mine.
