    HI there

    it is a good question

    My belief is that the Holy spirit and God/creator our Father are all the same powerful and loving Spirit.

    I do believe Jesus who preached on this universe is the "son of man"

    However not sure why they say In the name of the father, the son and the Holy spirit.

    However we pray to God and praise God and his heavenly hosts so that is good enough for me.

    There is no use over analyzing  anything, it just raises more questions.

    1 Timothy 1:4
    4 and occupying themselves with myths and endless genealogies. These myths and genealogies raise a lot of questions rather than promoting God’s plan, which centers in faith.

    Spirit with a capital letter is God and the Holy Spirit is the Grace or Compassion aspect of God. The Son is also God or Spirit and yet there is only God. These things are best understood through prayer.
    Electricity manifest in something we call a bulb as Light, and in an iron as heat. Yet it is the same power. We say in the West that the Indians have many Gods, but I have studied the philosophy for 30 years and it speaks only of Brahman, or God. Yes, they see Krishna or Ram as we see Jesus, and they have gods like we have angels and arch-angels, but they know that Truth is one. Point here is that so much is based on perception and ignorance.
    The Comforter (Holy Spirit) is God in His aspect of transformation, and is a direct transmission of the Spirit infused into us to enhance our love and change our lower nature. All is Spirit and even man is made in It's image. So man is also Spirit. Not two spirits, Simply a Source expressing Itself in a myriad of different ways. The Highest aspect of this Spirit is the Word made flesh, the God-man, if you like.
    I do not know of an unforgivable sin. God is a God of love. Still, do appreciate that this is only my view.

      Don’t know about unforgivable sin? Look at Mark 3:22-30, Matthew 12:31-32, John 3:18, and John 3:36. Hopefully, you may include this information in your book, “A look at The Teachings of Jesus, The Christ". It can be helpful to our young Christians.

      My nature is to love and uplift all God's children. Rest assured that I will not use too much mental stuff or be controversial in my book. Much peace.

      No I agree Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is a very unforgivable sin. It says in the scriptures. God is love however he is also just and people seem to skip over the parts of his wrath. No human likes to be blasphemed so think of how God would feel.

    God is the Father, Jesus is the son of man, The Holy spirit is "The great comforter" whom Jesus left with us on the day of Pentecost to dwell within us. They are the same, but they are also three, therefore the Trinity.

    Blasphemy against the Holy spirit is rejecting him when he is convicting one to accept Jesus. Not accepting Christ is the only unforgivable sin. Without salvation one cannot enter into the kingdom of Heaven.

    God is the creator , the holy spirit is an angel whose job was to convey God's messages to prophets and Messengers and Jesus is a human Messenger who was born by the virgin without a human father, a miracle from God , just like Adam was created from clay and Eve was created from Adam's rib.

    A very good question. I shall ponder & share. However, I offer definitions to consider as a guideline(s) with the conditions presented ,

    "Please bear in mind that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is unforgivable sin."

    Blasphemy is defined by a common source Mr. Webster as;
    1a the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God
    1b the act of claiming the attributes of deity
    2 irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable

    Answering of 'self' I know as fact #1a will not occur based on 1 John 4:10 & the book of Galatians.

    I do not claim deity in any sense of the word with consideration of exception of Galatians 2:20, therefore #1b I tender as does not apply.

    #2 is the toughest of the these. Consider irreverence toward & whom - a religion, a church fellowship, a home fellowship, an individual, and etc. The reference I am familiar with that as a sin in a biblical context is with regard to the "Pharisees accusing Jesus of being possessed by the Devil."

    Adding to is the unpardonable sin of blasphemy is never mentioned after the ministry on earth of Jesus, ever again in regard of the recognized canonical text of scriptures. Thus, a chronological truth with position that "sin" is forgiven with the process of Jesus & the cross, descension, resurrection, & final ascension regarding forgiveness offered freely within liberty. Some may say that is supported by 1 John 1:7-9.

    Most certainly any individual who weighs with their scales as being so may say is blasphemous or contemptuous. However, within the precept of God may not be.

    The statement says "God is Spirit" proclaimed with John 4:24. Further in that verse it says, "must worship in spirit and in truth." That is the content. The context adds much more, yet not the question. I ponder "spirit and in truth" as two of difference. The question asks;

    "is God and Holy Spirit two different spirits?"

    I tend to look at things oddly, so ask forgiveness of a thought process only seeking something, if found offensive. Listening I see this as asked,
    A) "Is God and Holy Spirit two?"
    B) Next, is "God and Holy Spirit Different?"
    C) Now, "Is God and Holy Spirit spirits?"

    Without offering thoughts as proof;
    A) No
    B) Yes
    C) Sometimes and yes

    "is God and Holy Spirit two different spirits?"

    If Spirit is Holy, thus is God, then equal, other than are different. Difference of as Spirit is as are both, while God sometimes is not.   

    Ponder proof, acknowledgement, acceptance & belief

    In Hebrew The Holy Ghost is שכינה/השכינה and the pronunciation is "The Shekhinah", meaning The Divine Presence, Omnipresence, the Godhead, and Holy Inspiration. It is the Sacred power of God, and in Hebrew has never represented a person.

    In Luke 4 it says Yahshua was full of the Holy Ghost meaning he was full of God’s power.
    Luke 4:1
    And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
