A Proposed Analogy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Keith Staples @ 8:17 am

Many Christians think of the Holy Spirit as the Ringo Starr of the Trinity. But those in the know recognize His importance. Does this underappreciation not make Him the George Harrison of the Trinity?  Discuss.

  1. Not really. Since the assembled Beatles were “bigger than Jesus,” that would preclude any trinitarian analogues between the Fab Four and the Triune. Unless you consider Ringo as the Virgin Mother, and the real core of the band the Trinity. But in that case, we would have to exclude Ringo from the band’s whole oeuvre, including “Yellow Submarine.” I’m willing to go along with that.
