And when people like you do not take into account what all I said about the limitations of human communications

people end up following the chicken little prophets running around claiming the sky is falling.

The question is, is God just ONE spirit?

Follow up question, if so, does just one spirit mean only one entity within?

The Bible (not me and not you) pronounces the distinction between individuals in the Godhead in several places.

John 14:26 and John 15:26 come to mind where both Father and Son send the Holy Spirit into the world.

One does not send ones' self.

It was just an apple that hit chicken little on the head...

What we know is that God is "A" Spirit, not just "Spirit", and........... the unholy spirit is what the Devil consists of, so, obviously there is not just ONE Spirit.

Its important to realize the distinction. to know that there is one...., and its important to use a bible that MAKES the distinction.

And Yes, "let us make man in OUR Image", does define God as plural.  Which explains Jesus as the Word, with God, who Is God, before He came down from heaven, and became a Man.

I think you can realize that Jesus is God, and yet, He is Praying to the FATHER., And that is not a man praying to Himself.

Add in the Holy Spirit, as the Comforter who convicts of Sin, etc, and you have 3......but they are all the same.  "God".

Not saying that any are right or wrong, but consider this. 

John 14:16 "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:17 "Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:18 "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.


here clearly in John 14:18 the Lord Jesus told us who he is, the COMFORTER. for he is the " Advocate/Comforter"  1 John 2:1 "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous"

here the Greek term  advocate is the same word for "Comforter".

G3875 παράκλητος parakletos (pa-ra'-klee-tos) n.
1. (properly) one called near (to give help).
2. an intercessor (one who entreats of behalf of another).
3. a comforter.
[(not given)]
KJV: advocate, comforter 

and notice this  advocate, comforter is an  intercessor, (see definition #2 above). and who is the  intercessor? let's see. Romans 8:26 "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered". THERE HE IS, jESUS THE INTERCESSOR. for he, Jesus, our advocate, the Spirit,  make intercession for us.

      Our names are Homer Les and Wanda Ring, missionaries of faith. We have recently arrived in this part of the web to approach as friends.
      We are and older couple who live in a motel room with our two daughters, dog and our bird. We have been here two years after our last little bit of homelessness. Other than that we are very normal family that loves Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit more than anything. Our journey of faith has been a long hard slog for the past 12 years as God grew us up into spiritual maturity and intimacy with Jesus. Our blessings have been as great as our sufferings and we testify as such to all who would like to know more.
      We are not religious. We are not theologians. We will not debate. All we really want to do is testify to faith and encourage any and all to fling their lives into the hands of  mighty God who will care for them more deeply than they have ever known. We hope to get to know many as brothers and sisters in our beautiful Savior and trustworthy, faithful friend, Jesus.

      "having a form of godliness"
      So. what is this?   What is this AS compared to being saved - born again?
      Its very simple....
      a "form of godliness" is religion. All Religion.   All Religion is a "form" of Godliness that isn't actually true Godliness.     And what is the difference between Religion and Christianity?     Well, Religion is man's self effort to touch God or become God.    Whereas Christianity is God coming to Man, as a divine Man,  to take man back home.    Religion is man's self righteous effort to get in touch with God, and Christianity is God on a Cross touching humanity with the Blood of Jesus, the Righteousness of God,  and the Love of God..
       Its, "self righteousness", which is Religion.    Look at that phrase..."self righteousness"......"self".."right'.......trying to make "self" "right" with God.......by SELF.   (Legalism)   By works, by lifestyle, by commandment keeping, and worrying about keeping the law to TRY to make "self" = "righteous".
      See it?    All Religion is an effort to ither become Divine, or to join Divinity, by SELF RIGHTEOUS EFFORT... = trying to make "self" "right"......= Self-Righteousness. = Religion.
      And THAT.......all that is Religion, and it is what 2nd Timothy is defining as "a FORM of Godliness", that "denies the Power of God".
      So, what is the Power of God that imparts Godliness?   It IS the only and sole means and method that causes you to become born again.    This is being SAVED.... This is...God giving you HIS very Righteousness, which is the defining idea  you are to comprehend so that you perfectly understand WHAT the Power of God is, exactly and in Truth.
      The power of God, is the ability of God to recreate you as a "new creation" "in Christ".  So, this, once applied to you, is not a "form of Godliness", ... Its not self righteous effort .....Its not Religion, and its not something that you can  do for yourself.   Its something that God did for you on a Cross and then offers this Power, this Redemption, this BLOOD ATONEMENT, as a "free Gift", and when you by Faith trust in Christ, God then delivers the literal Power of God thru Christ that recreates you as born again and a "new Creation in Christ".
      To simplify......  
      "A form of Godliness" is Religion..... is Legalism....is trusting in SELF, instead of trusting totally in CHRIST to save you and keep you saved.
      Listen....if you are not trusting in Christ Alone to keep you saved, then you are not really trusting in Christ.    Thats a fact.
      Real Godliness is Redemption.   Real Godliness is God making you righteous and keeping you righteous, =  through the Blood of Jesus.
      "A form of Godliness" is a person trying to be good enough, live holy enough, or reach high enough by self righteousness, as THEIR RELIGIOUS EFFORT to become one with God, and in doing this they are "denying the real power of God" which is......The Cross and God as Christ on it as total eternal Redemption offered as a free GIFT...= "the GIFT of Righteousness". .  = (Grace).
