I find it interesting that the bible does not inclued love towards the Holy Spirit. However, the Holy Spirit is inclued when we are baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit. Unless I have missed some verse in the bible the states otherwise, the bible never mentions that we are also to love the Holy Spirit. I find this to be very interesting issue. Can anyone provide an answer that may explain it or provide a verse that I may have over looked?

P&N: Didn't get ur comment! Email me! email@example.com.
PandN- Thank you for your insightful answer. I#ve never thought of the Holy Spirit a person, As Rich mentioned; a better translation, I think, is "IT". Without the Holy Spirit it would be most difficult to unstand God's. Many blessings Word.
Does that then mean that God is a person?
p/n it would be difficult to improve on what you show here. AMEN for truth
The Trinity is not in the Bible. The Father says, "there is no God besides Me" (Deuteronomy 32:39), but the false doctrine of the Trinity declares there are two others who are God too in direct violation of His very own words.
youmeget- I do not follow the trinity doctrine for the very reason PandN explains. But the importent aspect is blaspheme against the Holy Spirit is unforgiveable. Not that I suggest at all for anyone to blaspheme towards God or Jesus Christ. Thanks.
If God is a trinity, how can blasphemy against Jesus and the Father be forgiven, but not forgiven against the Holy Spirit? Is 1/3 of God (the Holy Spirit) a party pooper? No, the Holy Spirit is not a person, but the POWER of God (acts 1:8)
flpalermo- I said about the same thing you just mentioned in a comment about 3 or 4 months ago. I think it was a valid point then as I do now. Thanks
Synclesian. Thank you for your comment. I will not assume you are correct, however, I will study further regarding your comment. Please note that I have not heard of the term you used "Lord Spirit". I will study this further and see what comes of it.
As will I
The Father and Son are one, but the disciples of Jesus Christ are also one with the Father and Son too. Read John 10:30 and then John 17:20-23.
PandN- I am aware too of the verses you quoted. My concern is this concept of " Lord Spirit" which I have not heard of before which I stated I would study further. I don't "assume" that Lord Spirit would be a correct term.
My comment was to Synclesian.
The verses in John would dispel the "Lord Spirit" notion. We are one in the spirit of the Lord. (2 Cor 3:17)
But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. - 1 Cor 6:17
PandN- Understood, thank you.
The term Lord Spirit is in 2 Corinthians 3:18, not chapter 2 as I wrote
Synclesian- I use the NKJV Bible and in 2 Corinthians 3:18 it uses the term Spirit of the Lord, not Lord Spirit. I don't know what bible virsion you're using but by using the term Lord Spirit it changes the context of the verse. That's my opinion.
Troy- thank you for your answer, however, being baptized with the Holy Spirit is not the same; I believe, as loving or not loving the Holy Spirit. Unless I'm misunderstanding verses, so I see no scriptrue requirement for us to love the Holy Spirit.
inspiritinone- thank you for your well thought out answer and I do agree, however, I'm not sure if John 13:15 really applies to this question, because Jesus Himself spoke these words you quoted in John. I understand what Paul saying inRomans 8:1-17
"The triune is and always will be part of the Christian world."
True, and part of the reason Jesus will say He never knew you, Spiritual Babylon has many such man made doctrines. I'll leave you to find the truth of scripture instead of man's teaching
Grace Padua- Thanks for your answer. I don't believe the divinity doctrine. Regardless Jesus tought about loving Him and the Father. Yet there is mention of loving the Holy Spirit. Clearly Jesus tought loving the Father and Jesus seperately.
grace I suggest you get out your bible , read the above comment by Planks and nails and see what scripture REALLY says instead of just accepting the false doctrines of apostate men
celafoe- Good to see you. The statement I made "Yet there is mention of loving the Holy Spirit" is a misprint. I was trying to write; Yet there is no mention of loving the Holy Spirit. I was not agreeing with Grace Padua. I did not see to err before.
Rich- I left a comment on your answer earlier and mistakenly deleted it. But thanks again for your comment. I agree. Blessing
peter565- I believe what the bible states. And it far different than what you have explained. I hope some day you'll take the time to STUDY the Holy Bible.
P.S. I believe there is a Holy Spirit. Have a good day.
Well, of course it would be different from the bible. The bible is compose by 5th~6th century, thousand of years after the original legion. In fact the Jewish bible and the Christian bible have some obvious different, as a result
Well then I have no use for your explaination.
The Holy Spirit is GOD. Your facts are incorrect. The Triune exists in you. Of course because you stated there is no Holy Spirit, you may not fully understand true Christianity. What you have shown is only about the Jews. Gods people are Israelites.

Perfect words thank you for sharing it, these are words Jesus
was teaching his disciples, if you can not love who you see, you can not love God who you do not see. Happy to hear your comments.
Eric-I don't think any one person can realize the full scope of the Holy Spirit. But it was our Lord Jesus Christ who sent the Holy Spirit to guides us into all truths and helps us as we seek the Kingdom of God. And Im thankful for this. Thanks you.
