Does my spirit detach and manifest physically outside of me? No.
Do I reflect God's image or does my image reflect God's? I am made in God's image. Hopefully my image, or character, reflects His.
Does God possess characteristics that I don't? Of course, never claimed otherwise.
I'm not really sure where you are going with this...
You made an appeal to our spirit in relationship to our being, to illustrate your statement as to what the Holy Spirit is. I was asking you questions to help you see how that appeal is illogical.
1. We reflect God's image, He doesn't reflect ours.
2. God has Characterists we don't possess and we don't reflect. These are called immutable, or unshared characteristics. We aren't omniscient or all-knowing. We aren't omnipresent, or present everywhere for example. Therefore, appealing to what we know of ourselves and the relationship in our being of Spirit, Soul and Body and applying that to God is in effect implying that God is created in our image, not us in His.
I notice that there seems to be a pattern in our discussions of bouncing from point to point without resolving the original point made.
Our purpose as a board is to stand as a Christian board open to believers or honest seekers. Are you sincerely seeking and here to discuss and stay on point or are you here to declare your beliefs and the beliefs of your Church and defend them against any detractors?
