Good for you. However, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel does not have three heads, neither is He schizophrenic.

When Stephen was being stoned to death for his faithful testimony, he looked up and saw in vision, "the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing AT THE RIGHT HAND of God!" (Acts 7:56) There was no one standing on the left hand side, just God and His Only-begotten Son! As it is also written, "But I saw no temple in [the New Jerusalem], for the Lord God Almighty AND the Lamb are its temple." Rev. 21:22

God is NOT, in similitude, a polygamous Mormon

“The first step of apostasy is to set up a creed, telling us what we shall believe. The second is, to make that creed a test of fellowship. The third is to try members by that creed. The fourth to denounce as heretics those who do not believe that creed. And, fifth, to commence persecution against such. I plead that we are not patterning after the churches in any unwarrantable sense, in the step proposed.”
J.N. Loughborough, Review and Herald, October 8, 1861

“Finally, we know the Divine unity of the Father and the Son from the fact that both have the same Spirit. Paul, after saying that they that are in the flesh cannot please God, continues: “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” Rom. 8:9. Here we find that the Holy Spirit is both the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Christ.” — (E.J. Waggoner, Christ and His Righteousness, p. 23, 1890)

“The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God; it is also the Spirit of Christ. It is that divine, mysterious emanation through which they carry forward their great and infinite work.” — (Uriah Smith, GC Bulletin, March 18, 1891, pp. 146, 147)

The Church would do well to heed the warning to not run ahead of the church's ability to accept a change in doctrinal understanding. For such activity has surely brought "confusion and discord into the ranks."(as she stated concerning the swine's flesh issue in her time.) So maybe some have been "rushing on without divine guidance." Just some thoughts to ponder.

President Donald J.Trump:
Genesis 1 introduces us to God. In there, God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness"; and then it is written, "So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (1:26-27) It is obvious that the human duality for the sake of procreation is reflective of the nature of the Divine duality for the sake of our special creation as children of God.

But who were the two Divine beings that "brought forth" Adam and Eve? Jesus said, "For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself ..." and again "For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will". (John 5:26, 21)

For which reason, John declares, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made." (John 1:1-2) And Jesus prayed, "And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was." (John 17:5)

There are ONLY TWO from whom, and for whom, are all things. And so God is NOT a trinity of persons. The analogy by which we gain understanding of who God is has been freely provided for us in our parents and the family. But men, in their vanity of ignorance, paint laughable images and imagine shamrocks and three-legged stools and tri-pronged forks and say it is too hard to understand.
