Is the Holy Spirit really pulling his weight in the Trinity?

God made the world, Christ saved it - what does this other guy even do all day?

It's a three legged stool, apparently.

It's a metaphor for the single malt he enjoyed when he sat back after completing Cornwall.

He's "in reserve" for the tag team chain match with Satan, Lucifer and the Dark Womble.

Well, in Augustine, the Trinity is Lover, Beloved, and Love.

So, the Holy Ghost is the Ghost of Love. Happen.

How very Motown.

He heard it through the grapevine.

May not be much room in the CofE for God part III but Pentecostals love the Holy Spirit, all that talking in tongues stuff

Is that when the dove from above plops on their heads?

So the Holy Spirit makes you multilingual? That's like a really shit super power.

Moschops - 09 Sep 2021 15:28:00 (#15 of 69)

God part III

Part 2 is generally regarded as Coppola's masterpiece I think

Don't knock it till you've tried to explain to an Uzbekistani border guard why the stuff that looks like heroin in your duffel bag really isn't.

The Holy Trinity is essentially the family firm of God and Son, the holy spirit is just the hired help. God founded the firm and worked his bollocks off in the early days creating the heavens and earth in six days etc but over the years he became less actively involved, only making the occasional appearance. His son wanted to take over the show and run things his way, he was a bit of a flash git, tried to expand too quickly and eventually it was help me daddy. Ever since then it has been the poor old muggins,the holy spirit keeping things ticking over, the bone idle son makes vague promises of coming back in but never actually shows his face.

This thread is like the many many films with men dressed up as Nuns doing wacky things. As a non Catholic I just don't find them funny.

tasselhoff - 09 Sep 2021 16:13:58 (#19 of 69)

Off you pop then.

Somebody once told me it was a committee meeting.
