While doing research for a paper on Trinitarian heresies I came across this gem. trinity_stuff_133025

It is said that a candidate for ministry, appearing before presbytery, was asked about the doctrine of the Trinity.

"Well," the candidate said, "The Father...[mumble, mumble]. The Son...[mumble]. And the Holy Spirit...[mumble]. The three ...[mumble, mumble] one."

"Would you please repeat that?" asked one of the commissioners.

"Certainly, sir. "The Father...[mumble, mumble]. The Son...[mumble]. And the Holy Spirit...[mumble]. The three ...[mumble, mumble] one."

"I still can't understand you!"

"You are not supposed to, sir. It is a mystery!"
