How do members of the Trinity communicate with each other?

Postby Christian2 » Tue Jul 04, 2017 6:56 am

How do members of the Trinity communicate with each other?

Are there any Scriptures that prove that they do communicate with each other?

Thanks.

They are one mind.
People treat facts as relevant more when the facts tend to support their opinions. When the facts are against their opinions, they don't necessarily deny the facts, but they say the facts are less relevant or insignificant. This is ofcourse because believing things that make you feel comfortable, takes a priority. And I think that should not be the case if one is after truth.

Perhaps it is not necessary to know HOW the members of the Trinity communicate; God has not revealed the HOW; it is more important to know that they do communicate.

Thanks, Guys.

They don't because they always are of the same mind. Remember God is one.

That is knowledge and the relationship role within the trinity, that doesn't mean they have different wills.

Ah, "chinese whispers" - also known as the telephone game. Nah - I'm fairly sure that the communication is simultaneous and perfectly known - not as if the message goes through the Father, then to the Son, and then when it gets to the Holy Spirit, the messasge is somehow garbled or changed.

It's neither simultaneous nor instantaneous. In fact, there is no communicating for communication implies distinction of the wills. In the Trinity there is but one divine will.
Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

So...Christ never prayed to The Father?

Must be. I consulted with the pope and that's what he told me to say. :mrgreen:

You have direct contact with the pope, and you live in NY? You must be in the mafia! :guns:
