    Not three parts. The triune god is the only one god. Analogy: Has the space three parts because it has three dimensions? And truth is by the way also always true. It depends not on any opinion or agreement of human beings what's true or not true. There's only one truth. And this truth exists independent from human beings. Who denies whatever form of truth, denies god too. We are able to understand truth[es] but we are not able to create or to destroy truth - as well as we are not able to create or to destroy energy. By the way: No intelligent species in the universe or multiverse is god too - even if they would be like god or gods in our eyes. "God" and "gods" are indeed completely different expressions too. Example: Money is often a god - but money is not god. Shiva is often seen to be a god - but Shiva is not god. The "I" of egocentrissits or narcissists is often a god - but god is not the ego of a now living person. ... On the other side: God is love. ... Why? ... Very easy: How could someone be able to be in love without loving "the love"?

    "Allah" is the word of the Arabian language for "god".

    The trinity exists because of doublethink and the need to have god and Jesus. Exactly why the spook was invented is beyond me but if you can imaging a monotheism with two gods, why not go for three.

    Or more - for example billions or an endless number of personalities ... or one? ... I said now one answer not: "two" - so perhaps this is the right answer. Is god our father and mother? Hildegard said once "God is our mother too" and everyone who heard it was delighted in her time of history.

    You are by the way no able to correct, what another person says. We Christians believe in the triune god: God father, God son and the holy spirit. "Personality" or "individuality" is something what's more a kind of result of the Christian religion. In other cultures or in former times it's often not so easy to use this expressions. A "Mr. Miller" today for example had an ancestor who was a Miller - this job was a function of the society - and the identity of the person too.

    So, a family of two and a friend of the family?
    Where is God? To whom Christians pray?

    Yes, three parts, which Judaism does not have.

    Not an analogy. G-d is not analogous to anything, but rather is a unity unlike any other. שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהֹוָה | אֶחָד (Hear, O Israel: The L-rd is our G-d; the L-rd is one.) Devarim 6:4. G-d is not space; in fact, G-d created space. G-d does not have dimension, or anything analogous to dimension. You cannot compare or analogize G-d to anything; He is Unique.

    Define "white" in this case.
    Then prove Jesus The Christ was white.

    I should start a poll thread. Is a brown Jesus as bad as a black president?

    Some send Mary to bring her prayers to the Almighty. May is by the way Mary's month. I don't think they will send you to do so instead of mother Mary. So don't be worried. And in general: Our god knows us and no prayer is lost.

    I know that you are not a Jew. So it is not wise from you to try to speak with me about your form of this what you think about what could be "Judaism".

    Not an analogy. G-d is not analogous to anything, but rather is a unity unlike any other. שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהֹוָה | אֶחָד (Hear, O Israel: The L-rd is our G-d; the L-rd is one.) Devarim 6:4. G-d is not space; in fact, G-d created space. G-d does not have dimension, or anything analogous to dimension. You cannot compare or analogize G-d to anything; He is Unique.
    The analogy was the word "triune". The space has a triune structure too. It has the dimensions forward-backward, left-right and up-down - nevertheless the space has no parts. Without this dimensions we could not understand how to go a way. If we speak about the triune god, then we don't speak about parts - we speak about god - and our Christian ways. If you would be convinced "we" would be right, then you would share our belief and become a Christian. If I would agree with you, then I would still not become a better Jew. That's for example one reason why real Jews never discuss about their own religion with anyone else than Jews - or very good friends - in an atmosphere of trust. Do you see here anywhere in the internet an atmosphere of trust?
