A saying attributed to Dorothy Sayers (don’t have the ref)
“There are those who would worship the Father, Son and the Virgin Mary; those who believe in the Father, Son and the Holy Scriptures; those who found their faith on the Father, the Son and the Holy Church; and there are those who seem to derive their spiritual power from the Father, the Son and the Minister!”
Assuming there is some truth to what she says, a question then is, ‘Why?’
Why is the Spirit neglected?
Why is it so easy to ‘replace’ the Spirit with someone or something else?
Theological reasons? Historical? Spiritual? Others come to mind?
Comments, as ever, welcome.
