There has always been confusion when it comes to the Trinity. However, when properly understood, it isn’t a contradiction and it makes so much sense. Watch this short response in order to get a better understanding.
It is important to remember the distinction in the language we use. The Trinity is not three Gods in one God or three persons in one person. If that were true, then it would be a contradiction. Instead, we are talking about different categories. The Trinity is three persons in one God or three who’s in one what. It is one Divine nature with three centers of consciousness. That is not a contradiction.
