Knowing the Trinity

Bernadette Roberts
"So as long as the Trinity remains experientially aloof from man’s immediate experience of God, it remains a mere belief with no intrinsic meaning for man’s spiritual journey. Unless man first knows the Trinity (God), he cannot even begin to ponder the mystery and true meaning of “Christ”. In fact, man had best know the Trinity like the back of his hand before he even thinks of Christ, for this is just how strategic is the Trinity to ever being able to have a true understanding of Christ. ...

"Let us briefly go over God’s triune revelations to man. 1) God omnipresent throughout creation. 2) God immanent in man. 3) God utterly transcendent to man and creation. Every revelation, and consequently every religion, falls into one or more of these three discrete revelations."
The Real Christ, page 85
From Patricia: Unless man first knows the Trinity (God), he cannot even begin to ponder the mystery and true meaning of “Christ. We know the Trinity in experience if only we will recognize It - God in Nature, God in each of us, and God beyond All. Unless we look at Christ through an understanding of the Trinity we are making for ourselves another little god among many, an idol that can be destroyed, leaving us alone and afraid or even angry.
