John’s words for the Holy Spirit seems to be Advocate and Spirit of Truth.
I like Spirit of Truth some how. Its different enough not have all those accretions hanging of it that Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost or Comforter seems to have.
This is new thinking for me. But what would it mean to to say Spirit of Truth instead of Holy Spirit when I talked about faith or Trinity or my spirituality? It seems to shift things. And it runs smack into Pilate’s question, What is truth?
And if the Spirit of Truth is also our Advocate — what might that mean? Or is the Spirit of Truth God’s Advocate to us?
