Q. Even the Pope cannot explain the trinity, but says it's a mystery. Do we worship a God of mystery?

A. Many spiritual truths are a MYSTERY, according to the Scripture. For example:

Dan 2:18, 19 
... Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven; 

Da 2:27 
Daniel answered before the king and said, "As for the mystery about which the king has inquired, neither wise men, conjurers, magicians {nor} diviners are able to declare {it} to the king. 

Da 2:30 
"But as for me, this mystery has not been revealed to me for any wisdom residing in me more than {in} any {other} living man, but for the purpose of making the interpretation known to the king, and that you may understand the thoughts of your mind. 

Da 2:47 
The king answered Daniel and said, "Surely your God is a God of gods and a Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, since you have been 
able to reveal this mystery." 

Mr 4:11 
And He was saying to them, "To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables, 

Ro 11:25 
For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery--so that you will not be wise in your own estimation--that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; 

Ro 16:25 
Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret for long ages past, 

1Co 2:7 
but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the hidden {wisdom} which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 

1Co 15:51 
Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 

Eph 1:9 
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him 

Eph 3:3 
that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. 

Eph 3:4 
By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 

Eph 3:9 
and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; 

Eph 5:32 
This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. 

Eph 6:19 
and {pray} on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, 

Col 1:26 
{that is,} the mystery which has been hidden from the {past} ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, 

Col 1:27 
to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 

Col 2:2 
that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and {attaining} to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, {resulting} in a true knowledge of God's mystery, {that is,} Christ {Himself,} 

Col 4:3 
praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; 

2Th 2:7 
For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains {will do so} until he is taken out of the way. 

1Ti 3:9 
{but} holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 

1Ti 3:16 
By common confession, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, Was vindicated in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Proclaimed among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory. 

Re 1:20 
"As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches. 

Re 10:7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets. 

Re 17:5, 7 
and on her forehead a name {was} written, a mystery, "BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." ...And the angel said to me, "Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
