Best Trinity Illustration
A favorite illustration of the trinity is that of liquid water, ice and water vapor. All three are composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, much like the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are one God. However, liquid water, ice and water vapor (being liquid, solid and gas) are different physically, much like the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are three persons. This illustration is fine, but it does allow the heresy teaching of modalism, which believes that the Father became the Son who died on the cross and was raised, who then became the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. Therefore, the same amount of water that exists in liquid form and be transformed into vapor or into ice.
A more accurate illustration of trinity is the coexistence of ice (solid), water (liquid) and water vapor (gas) at the triple point (marked by T in the phase diagrams above). Likewise, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit coexist in time and space.
Another interesting point about the phase diagram is the slope of the solid-liquid line BT. For most materials, this slope is positive (as in Figure 2). The positive slope means that solid form (state 1 in Figure 2) of most materials is more dense (higher pressure) than liquid form (state 2 in Figure 2). Water, on the other hand is just the opposite. It has a negative slope of the solid-liquid line BT, resulting in a denser liquid form (state 1 in Figure 1) than the solid form (state 2 in Figure 1). The importance of this phenomenon cannot be overemphasized. This allows the ice to float on top of water in rivers, lakes and the ocean, allowing life in the bottom of the rivers, lakes and the ocean, although the top is frozen. If water has a positive solid-liquid (BT) line like most materials, there will be no life, for the rivers, lakes and ocean will be frozen from bottom to top. The evolutionists argue that life evolved from single cell organisms to complex beings. However, they will never be able to explain why water has a negative solid-liquid slope, allowing life to persist in the bottom of a frozen water mass. This can only be explained by the design of a creator, who created the universe in three persons, the Father (Psalms 33:6, 9; Isaiah 44:24, 45:18; 64:8), the Son (John 1:3; Colossians 1:15-17), and the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:2).Back to Trinity Page
