Genesis 1:26 starts: "And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness:..".
THREAD: threadreaderapp.com/thread/1091184…

Thinking logically: the plurality of God is in the beginning of Creation (before ALL creation) AND subsequent naming of the persons..
.. (see thread)

along with the * abiding with and abiding in * of John 14:16-17 as well as other texts in Holy Scripture:

"But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works: that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."
[John 10:38]
"Do you not believe, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not of myself. But the Father who abideth in me, he doth the works."
[John 14:10]

"Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?"
[John 14:11]
Note the plurality of God existed before creation * abiding with and in *.

ONLY God existed before creation AND the naming of Jesus and the Holy Spirit in that abiding relationship confirms their existence as God: ONE GOD, three Persons.

Another interesting text, for example:
"Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of myself, but he sent me:"
[John 8:42]

YOU and I were * created *; but, Jesus "proceeded".

You and I were * made *, but, Jesus was "sent"
IMHO, as a Roman Catholic, it is this kind of Scriptural text that reveals the truth of God's singularity: ONE GOD, and plurality: THREE PERSONS:

God the Father
God the Son
God the Holy Spirit

It is not difficult to find similarities as we are in God's image:
Is there not one YOU?

Potentially if not actually seen in three different ways:

You: yourself
You: son of your parents
You: parent of your child (or children)

We were created AFTER the beginning of creation.

Our ONE holy true God existed BEFORE the beginning of creation..
.. in precisely the plurality of Persons that He chose to reveal to us.

ONLY GOD existed before ALL of creation: first the creation of angelic spirits and then the creation of mankind having a spirit and body.

You are passionate & convinced of your views; others are confused.
The next tweet elaborates on the MYSTERY of the HOLY TRINITY..

It begins with a detailed expression of CONFUSION and,

then, the reply reaffirms the MYSTERY of the HOLY TRINITY.

It seems to begin by * adding fuel to your fire *.

I pray the reply is sufficient.
"The Trinity is a profound mystery and is not easily explained or understood."
