You are tracking well but consider.
God is one.
From Him emanates the Holly Spirit. You indicated that God did not send out a number of Holy Spirits but in a real sense He does.
Think of God casting out a large net called the Holy Spirit. The net is held by God at one end, the remainder of this net spreads out before Him. Each line of that net goes to touch a soul. The Holy Spirit binds all of us at all times with God through this touch. Now instead of a net it has the same shape if you will but instead of string it is made up of, dare I say it, telepathic tendrils. Thus allowing communication.
Jesus, a great prophet, meant he was the spiritual son of God not the biological son. God is noncorporeal. Further it would be hard to say that Jesus was there at the beginning. He, as well as Marie where yet to be. It is also difficult to sit at the right hand of God if you are God.
The jury is still out on physical Resurrection but mental resurrection is a fact.

DL
PS Did you write to "miner god". Your style looks familiar.

Re: The Physical Resurrection
I checked that site and was aware of most of the information.
I still am not convinced of physical resurrection. Mental, yes.
For the purposes of His philosophy it may not matter. God is more concerned with our thoughts than with our bodies.
Well and good if Jesus kept His body but really what good is His body in heaven. I prefer to think that His body is on earth and He will be raised at end time with the rest of us.

Re: The Physical Resurrection
Heaven is a non corporeal realm. Why or even could our bodies be comfortable there. I need not justify the lack of necessity of placing bodies in an inappropriate place. Do we actually visualize Jesus floating somewhere for 2000 years.
I do believe in a mental resurrection.

Re: The Physical Resurrection
As I understand end time predictions, all that have lived and died will arise for the final judgement. There are many souls in heaven at present including Jesus. He like all the rest is to reclaim their physical form upon return. At that time is when we truly see if Jesus sits at the right hand of God.
This is actually a good possibility and probability.
Consider.
The king of lions is a lion.
King of rabbits is a rabbit.
The King of men should be men.
If I recall correctly, end time prediction speak of electing a God for ourselves. Jesus then becomes a candidate to speak to all the other false prophets that dwell at end time.
After the end the earth will find itself with a human political leader and it will also have a human spiritual leader.

Re: The Physical Resurrection
The fact of Jesus having a body in heaven at end time and perhaps even now will become irrelevent.
You have helped make my case for a world government lead by a man and our religious, spiritual side lead by a man. The man in your case is Jesus.
Sounds good to me.

Re: The Physical Resurrection
You indicate that some will be left behind.
I would suggest that at that time God takes us all in because all souls, if God is God, are Perfect.

Re: The Physical Resurrection
Leaving any would constitute a failure on God's part.
This is not allowed by God.

Re: The Physical Resurrection
When logic and prophesy clash I will go with logic.
When God reaps He reaps fully.
Read about how God is greedy, perfect. Read where He lost His power to make Perfection. I could not find that passage. Show where He sits with Satan and divides His loses with the one that bested Him.
Impossible.
Jesus is the way. Try to think with the benevolence of Jesus. Would He not ask God to turn the other cheek.
Would God not turn it.

DL

Holy Ghost is the feminime aspect of Yahweh.
Yahweh and Adam were originally depicted as androgynous.
Think of the Adam's rib to create Eve.
The feminine had to go somewhere when Christianity changed the trinity concept from Father Mother and child to their stupid take on it.

Re: British Humor Writ Large
On Jesus.
You will likely know that Jesus was never anointed to Christ. Right?
Does that lie of his Christ status make a diference to yopu?

Re: British Humor Writ Large
Are you serious about the feminine being the Church??
Why does the Mother forbid other women to preach or teach men in the church?

Re: British Humor Writ Large
"Your Gnostic B.S."
My Gnostic Christian knowledge already has you ignoring pertinent question and giving shit answers on the rest.
Some apologist you are, while complaining of the apologetics of others.

Re: Greatest I AM and AZ Does It enter the room
"it needs medication."
You are becoming quite the anal orifice, Christian.
You do not seem to agree with the spirit of this quote, as you just continue to promote evil.
Martin Niemöller
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
For evil to grow, all people need do is what you do.
