Not Really a Thought of the Day

Rather unlike the previous, the following snippet of ‘wisdom’ comes from a certain Rev Gerald Ambulance (cf. his Ministry Manual here). This creative minister has been known, for the purpose of enticing people back to church, to spike the church incense with questionable, and in some countries illegal, substances.


He was once asked the old chestnut: ‘I’m confused about the Trinity. How can God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit all be God, if there’s only one God?’. He memorably answered:
‘Look at it like this: once upon a time there were three little bunnies called Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. One day a nasty man caught them and put them in a rabbit pie. They were still three rabbits, but only one pie’
That one smeared a guilty smile across my face.

So the pie is different from the rabbits?

If you only see one of the rabbits, you will never see the pie?

Steven, really, are you so utterly devoid of sense that you can't recognize a joke? Are you really some sort of android, like Data on Star Trek?

Concepts of the Trinity are a joke?

When asked about the Trinity, theologians make jokes rather than attempt serious replies?

How about this joke as a metaphor for the Trinity? Jesus was fully human and fully God, just like my pet is fully dog and fully cat?
