The Holy Spirit is an “It?”

The doctrine of the Holy Spirit is much neglected. People who stress the Holy Spirit tend to be, uh, eccentric. One aspect of Holy Spirit doctrine I’ve heard critiqued is when Christians refer to the Spirit as “it.”

Is this a problem?

Read Romans 8:16 and 26 in the KJV (it’s linked for ya right back there).

 Hmm. What makest thou of thateth?

  1. Now as you well know I’m no real scholar, but this is my take on it: the KJV is about as much use in exegesis as the TV guide is in critical appraisal for the Emmys.
