This Week's Another Empty Conversation: The Bones Of Our Belief: The Human Condition (NOT feat. Jon Bellion)
The wise British journalist Malcolm Muggeridge said that “The depravity of man is at once the most empirically verifiable reality but at the same time the most intellectually resisted fact."
Just look around, is he wrong?
We are not good people, but we have become really good at living in denial.
Is there any hope for us?
Maybe so, and maybe we can get a little closer to the answer in this week’s episode of Another Empty Conversation.
As Seen on Sunday: The Ghost in Our Bones
The Holy Spirit - or the Holy Ghost, as some may reference, is often the most misunderstood member of the Triune God. His power and influence is either overly diminished or unashamedly abused for the corrupt benefit of man. I suppose the same could be said of the other members of the Triune God as well, but the historical incarnation of Jesus and the Old Testament Yahweh as Father are offer an easier grasp on their being and role. The Holy Spirit is present through out all Scripture but he is less a character in the narrative than the one that makes the narrative move forward. He isn't even the narrator of the book as he seemingly settles for well-timed cameos.
But let's not be fooled. The Holy Spirit is in many ways the most intimate member of the Godhead for he is the one that dwells in us. In many ways, he is the Ghost in our Bones.
