[quote=Augustine]We know that the 3 Persons of the Holy Trinity are the one God. Jesus said that He and the Father are one and thus so is the Spirit He gave us after resurrecting. I assume that the passages which I refer to implicitly are among those that reveal the trinitarian God. If so, what is the meaning of the Father being greater than the Son?
Great intrigue. I look to Genesis, where we are made in His image. I see the Will, Word and Spirit; all being almighty. Now we possess this trinity. Which would you say is the greater, though all being one. Obviously the word does not speak until the will directs and the spirit is sent out at the time of the word. Remember the Father has given all authority to the eternal Word, Jesus Christ, except for times and seasons. There is order, will word and spirit. As I read somewhere, the Spirit is the executor of the Will at the time of the Word.
Also be very cautious because the bible states we will be held liable for every idle word. Think, we are sending our spirit out and if it is not in love we are fighting against God. ‘I hate’ him, is to send your spirit out on an errand of hate, for the spirit obeys the word. God’s protection for us is the weakness of our spirit . How harmful are out intentions though?
