FACETS

Those of us who spend time exploring Matters Spiritual will, on occasion, speculate as to the nature of the Deity (assuming He/She/It exists).

We Old Testament types believe rather strongly in One God...but even One God may present different aspects of the Ineffable and Unknowable. Thus we have the various images of God the Father that contrast with the Shekhinah, the feminine aspect of God. The contrasting attributes of justice and mercy all may be found within this single Godhead.

Christians, with their notion of a triune Godhead, translate one facet of the Godly Personality into corporeal form. But even there, one may find several different interpretations of that bodily manifestation. To wit:

Jebus
The spiritual.

Buddy
The companionable.

Which one fills your spirituous spiritual need best?
