Trinity - Comparing Father, Son and Holy Ghost  

Comparing the Three Persons in Christianity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

The Trinity as comparable to the three parts of an individual human being: mind, spirit, and will. They are three distinct aspects, yet they are inseparable and together constitute one unified human being. Saint Augustine, early church thinker
Christianity holds that God is One, but that three distinct "persons" constitute the one God: the Father, Son (Christ) and Holy Spirit.

The table below lists individual God features, which cannot be found across the three persons. This level of individuality and distinction adds to greater confusion on the Trinity doctrine.
