Holy Spirit - Holy Ghost
The Church View:
The Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is a supreme eternal being separate from either
the Father or Jesus and is part of a equal trinity with those two beings.
The Bible View:
The Holy Ghost, or Holy Spirit, is the essence of God the Father, and is the
source of all love, life, and faith. There is no scriptural evidence to support
the concept that the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is an individual being. There is
evidence that the belief in a "Trinity" is a traditionally accepted concept
rather than a
The concept of the Holy
Spirit or Holy Ghost as an individual entity that is part of a Trinity, including
the Father and Jesus,
is a dogma not supported in biblical text.
A "trinity" was never
mentioned by the prophets, or the apostles, and was actually contradicted by the
words of Jesus himself. The concept of the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost as a
force projected by God,
as a form of spiritual contact, and power
supported in Biblical text, and clearly described as a source of power, and
guidance by prophets, and apostles alike. It is well documented in theological
environs that this doctrine is shaky,
and only accepted as doctrine
through a constant presence in doctrinal development, it is a tradition, not
biblical doctrine. In simple terms, it is
from man, not the Bible. Such a powerful entity with equal status to the
Supreme Elohiym would certainly have at least a name or some description of its
individual personality. It is almost always described as the device of the will
of the Elohiym rather than a supreme partner in an exclusive triad of this
supreme race. The names
Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit
are from the same words.

· 1 John 5:7
For there are three
that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these
three are one.
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and
the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
In verse 7, the phrases “the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:” and “and these three are one” have both been added by the translators, as was
the phrase “And there are three that bear witness.” in verse 8. This was
a blatant attempt by the Bishop of London, the supervisor of the translation project under
King James, to inject the human based tradition of the Trinity into biblical
text. No words that can be translated into these added phrases could be found
in the original text. It is a fraud. The words are not found in any
of the oldest, and most reliable manuscripts, nor in any of the ancient
The concept of a triad in the godhead was not known in
the original church the Christ established, and only appeared in "church"
doctrine when the Emperor Constantine began his wholesale overhaul of biblical
doctrine. It was made official in 381 A.D by the Council of Constantinople,
which defined the godhead as three gods in one. From the Council transcripts we
find this statement: "You, we and all who are not bent on subverting the word of
the true faith should give this creed our approval. It is the most ancient and
is consistent with our baptism. It tells us how to believe in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the holy Spirit: believing also, of course, that
the Father, the Son and the holy Spirit have a single Godhead and power and
substance, a dignity deserving the same honour and a co-eternal sovereignty, in
three most perfect hypostases, or three perfect persons." The Council of Nice
refers to this “institution” of the trinity into church doctrine as backing
concepts formed in 325 A.D. This Council, convened by the Emperor Constantine
that formulated the Nicene Creed. In every form, and from every aspect, the
concept of the Holy Spirit / Ghost as an independent entity, or personality, and
part of a "trinity" is a human, not a biblical, doctrine.
In truth, the doctrine of the "Trinity" is one of the
most blatant, and easily documented examples of the hypocrisy Jesus spoke of
when he stated: " Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This
people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for
doctrines the commandments of men.", (Matthew 15:7-9).
The Holy Spirit
are the verses in the New Testament, which speak of the Holy Spirit and Holy
Ghost. A review of these verses will show that it can clearly be determined
the Holy Spirit is a spiritual force rather, than a being..
Cast me not away from thy
presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be
their enemy, and he fought against them.
he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that
brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that
put his holy Spirit within him?
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much
more shall your heavenly
Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of
your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that
holy Spirit of promise,
3:5 Which in other ages
was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy
apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of

unto us his holy
