Calling Christians Worldwide to Return to the Creed of Jesus

Is the Spirit a Person in John 14.16?  [< 1 page]
by Jay Dicken rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)

In John 14:16, 18 notice what Jesus said, “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another [allos] helper, to be with you forever / I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you.” At Matthew 28:20 Jesus said, “Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the ages.” It is through the coming of this promised helper, the holy spirit, that Jesus comes to them and remains with them (although he is physically absent), hence the use of allos. As said before, the holy spirit is reflective of Personality, in this case, that of Jesus Christ.

Commentary on 1 Corinthians 12.4,6
by John Schoenheit, Mark Graeser, and John Lynn [1 page]
rated at 1 (out of 5 votes)

The verses speak of three: God, Christ and the spirit, but do not speak of a Trinitarian formula. We put "spirit" with a lower case "s" because it refers to God's gift of holy spirit that is born in each believer.
