What are we supposed to do with those scriptures which ascribe personality to the Holy Spirit, then?
such as Hebrews 3:7 - "So as the Holy Spirit says, 'Today, if you will hear his voice ... "
or Hebrews 10:15 - "The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says ..."
or Acts 21:11 - " ... The Holy Spirit says 'In this way the Jews of Jerusalem ... "
or Acts 28:25 - " ... The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your forefathers when he said through Isaiah the prophet, ... "
And those are just a few. The denial of the Holy Spirit's personhood is an attempt to defend various forms of Arianism. But to me, (readers here can be the judge), it requires serious scriptural gymnastics ... nay, contortionism, to make its claim.
Are you really suggesting that words like "speak, says, testify, and HE" do not convey personhood?
