Treatise on the Trinity with a 6-Year-Old

6-year-old Michael: Daddy, are Jesus and God the same person or two different persons?

Daddy: Yes and Yes.

Michael: How is that possible?

Daddy: There is only one God.  The Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three distinct persons, but they are One.  And there is only One God.

Michael: I really don’t get it.

Daddy: Me neither. But we do not have to understand it.  We just have to believe it!

  1. Such an inquisitive mind! A future theologian, maybe. Start thinking of a Seminary: Trinity? Westminster? Wheaton? Dallas? (And I’d rather recommend Bob Jones or… Oral Roberts than Fuller or Biola 🙂 )
    Kidding aside – my daughter was accepted at Master’s with the maximum scholarship they could offer… but I still had to come up with ten grand a year… so, I said ‘no’ – but now I kind of regret it.

    • Hopefully she can still go if you change your mind or she can get some loans…

      Ten grand a year is pretty standard these days for any education even with scholarship… Actually ten grand is low…

      Remember 10 grand now is not the same ten grand from 10-20 years ago…
