Is the Trinity Like an Egg?

Episode 504 Show Notes 

From the Show

If I was describing my wife, for example, and everything I was saying about her was wrong, was false, was a distortion of who she really was—that would be terrible! She would not appreciate that. Well, when we describe God, when we speak about him, we have to speak about him in the way that Scripture gives us. That’s how we honor him. That’s how we worship him rightly.

—Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

1. I have a couple of friends who say that Jesus has come to them and spoken to them in their dreams. Most recently, they said that Jesus came to them and said UFO’s were real and angel’s chariots. I kind of cringe any time I hear that. I wanted to know, what are your thoughts on Jesus coming to people in their dreams?

2. As an introvert, I’ve actually enjoyed being at home more these days. I actually worry about when life goes back to normal because I don’t want to lose the joy and contentment I’ve been experiencing. Is this wrong?

3. Is thinking about our Triune God as an egg Modalism? The egg, egg white, and shell are three separate things but still one egg, like how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three separate things but all God. Is this a valid way of thinking or not?

4. I asked Jesus Christ to be my savior a while back, but I can’t stop drinking, smoking, and cussing. I’ve tried everything. What can I do?
