Keith, why do you think Jesus thinks more highly of this being, than he does his Father, The Creator.? and places Him above Himself.? The Holy Spirit is the only one mentioned with such reverence.

Not a conversation I intend to pursue with you, laymond. Been there. Done that. Went nowhere.

Well bear with me while I try one more time Keith, The phrases the Father, the Creator, the Holy Spirit, all refer to the same Almighty God, One God called by many names. Others include the Judge, the redeemer, and others that fit the description of an almighty being.

"And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven." ~ Jesus, Luke 12:10 (Just another place where Jesus said, the father is greater than the son)
Jhn 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come [again] unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
