    Deberá Denise Dunlap , "You do err concerning the Scriptures" as Jesus told the Sadducees. What you have written, if not in ignorance, is blasphemous. Please read God's word and know that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead and is masculine.

    Here comes another one! It is amazing to me how without fear of God so many people are! THE HOLY GHOST IS REFERRED TO BY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AS "HE" AND "HIM." The female was created for the male, for things pertaining to THIS WORLD. The woman was beguiled by the serpent because she was allured by the evil thoughts of slander, blaspheme and envying, as if she was owed it of God!
