Did God commit incest?


The Holy Trinity really does make for some messed up scenarios, and this is just one of them.

We’ve already gone over the idea that God has multiple personality disorder, due to the fact that he and Jesus are so radically different in their teachings, but what if the three of them committed incest as well?

The story of the birth of Jesus goes that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, and she gave birth to Jesus. Sounds innocent enough, right? Well, asides from the weird ghost and all of that stuff, but pretty normal for the Bible.

Well, things get a bit stranger when you take into account that essentially, Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit are technically all the same thing. If the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, doesn’t that also mean Jesus impregnated her? Is Jesus his own father? I mean God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit have to all be the same thing, otherwise Jesus would be the son of the Holy Spirit, not of God. And if Jesus impregnated his own mother, that means he, God and the Holy spirit committed incest.

Now, one could argue that Mary has no biological connection to the divine, so therefor technically didn’t commit actual incest, but it’s at least verging on the edge of it, and still a very weird scenario. Just like if you take into account the fact that we’re all apparently God’s children. Even if not biologically, the metaphorical meaning and message here is just a tad off.

And to all the Christians arguing that sex before marriage is wrong, consider this – God was never married to Mary when she gave birth to Jesus.

Now this is really just an idea that I’m throwing out, and I’ve honestly got no idea whether this could really be used as an argument of any kind, but nevertheless I thought I’d talk about it for discussion’s sake.

  1. the problem seems to be that most Christians have no idea what the HS is supposed to be. We have JC being born. Then the gospels aren’t sure when the HS inhabits him or is him or what the heck is going on. the Bible, especially the gospels, are an editor’s nightmare. I’d love to have been a fly on the wall during the discussions about what needed to be included in the official “bible”. It’s like reading the worst anthology ever. 🙂

  2. Chuck Palahniuk has a great book called Rant about a guy who goes back in time to kill his father and then impregnate his mother (ostensibly with himself). He the repeats the process with his grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. so that ultimately he becomes his own father, grandfather, etc. The book then hints that this makes him immortal and possibly even divine.

    I guess with enough inbreeding, anyone can become god.
