Talk:Holy Spirit

Somebody told me that the holy spirit is that part of god prayers are adressed to, mentioning that this is actually mentioned in the bible. He didn't/couldn't tell me where exactly, though. Does somebody know if this is true? Also, this would reduce the father to more or less being nothing BUT the father, which would make him quite redundant.-- (talk) 15:06, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Kind of funny that you may blasphem with no limit against God or Christ ,being forgiven (but what's the use if you're going to Hell anyways?) but you're screwed if you do the same against the HS. This is nonsensical.

Oh, well, I'll see you again in Hell. I suspect we'll certainly be not alone at all. Panzerfaust (talk) 13:31, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

I am surprised to see no mention of pneuma. Pneuma was a philosophy promoted by the stoics. It was the generative principle that constitutes the human soul and there was a fragment of pneuma that was the soul of Zeus. If you read the bible in its original greek, pneuma is what is translated to spirit. John 3:6-8 is a good example. In greek, it is “to gegenhmenonn ek ths sarkos sarc estin kai to gegenhmenonn ek tou pneumatos pneuma estin mh qaumashs oti eipon soi dei umas gennhqhnai anwqen to pneuma opou qelei pnei kai thn fwnhn autou akoueis alla ouk oidas poqen erxetai hit pou upagei outws estin pas o gegennhmenos ek tou pneumatos.” In English this poorly translates to “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”
