Father, son & holy spirit(?)....okaaay....but what IS it?

One third of the alleged Godhead. Here, let me explain Christianity in terms of the Godhead:

One third of the Godhead got angry with humans because of some baggage he's made us carry with us because of his own arbitrary system of "justice". After four thousand years, this made him feel bad. He sent the second third of the Godhead to earth to be sacrificed in order to appease the first third of the Godhead. Now, if this doesn't make sense to you, don't worry. It doesn't make sense to anyone.

That's where the Holy Spirit comes in. The third third of the Godhead is sent to us to telepathically tell us how awesome this all is, and that's the only way we can accept it.


Make sense? Tongue

Isn't your third third supposed to be the second third? After all, didn't your third third actually impregnate the young woman, meaning your third third came (pardon the pun) before your second third, making your second third the third third?

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

RE: holy spirit
God is Being. Son is Being. Holy Spirit is Becoming. (Complete with annoying capitalizations. Wink Also, Holy Spirit is that of God which animates prophets - see Ezekiel.

More generally, Holy Spirit is Animus; that which animates all life.

If someone will second that, I'll go ahead and third it. Tongue

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Yup - breath of life.

Supposedly, all are children of god... though, separated beings. Spirit is necessary to become one with god's being.

Frankly, some really good recreational drugs could also accomplish the same trick. Drinking Beverage

RE: holy spirit
Holy Spirit=special 6th sense to some Christians. The insanely crazy church I was raised in taught that the holy spirit acts like a guide for a believer's life. The holy spirit helps a believer know right from wrong. Helps them know when they have sinned.

Also it would be referenced when interpreting the bible. Don't agree with your fellow Christian's interpretation? Then they just weren't listening to the spirit. Or they didn't have the discernment of the spirit.

And for the super crazy, the holy spirit was responsible for speaking in tongues and praying in the spirit. Or getting up and running around the church with tambourine in hand.

No joke. Often it's a excuse for them to do whatever the hell they want, as long as they say they are being led by the spirit.

Sounds like you don't have enough Holy Spirit. Which is probably a good thing.

It doesn't matter which is which third. They're all eternal. The Son already existed while a separate aspect of the Godhead was conceiving him.

Why? Because Trinity. Also, fuck causality.

They way I heard it, Holy Spirit was added to Father and Son to avoid the negative publicity of duality. :/

RE: holy spirit
In case anyone missed it, I remember standing before the creator of the universe and accepting the title of prophet. And the vehicle of that moment was Holy Spirit. But it was never about morality, nor religion, nor good versus evil, it was more about tao, about how we are all star stuff...

About how it doesn't matter how PETA you are, it's gonna take opposable thumbs to get this life off of this rock before Sol goes all red giant. It's about will, and love, and becoming; not being stagnant, not being complacent, not being without sin.

About being with the Creator by being The Creator, not by being us versus them but rather us versus it, where it is entropy and we shall prevail!

(OK... maybe there's some alcohol involved... Big Grin )
