THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PERSONS WITHIN AND WITHOUT THE SDA CHURCH WHO ARE STILL CONFUSED AS TO WHETHER THE HOLY SPIRIT IS:

A PART OF THE GODHEAD

A PERSON OR A FORCE

PLEASE EXPLAIN SO THAT WE CAN HELP OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND.

I find that amazing! Our church, the SDA church just put out a quarterly dedicated to the subject. In fact if a person were to study the Bible as William Miller did and take it word by word it would be easy to understand what the Holy Spirit is.  For me personally it is quite moving that the Holy Spirit can be grieved, can a force be grieved.  People need to study and use the mind God gave them.

Miller, the guy that thought he had the day Jesus was returning. The Bible says no man knows the day or the hour, not even Jesus knows, he has to get the order from The Father. So I wouldn't want to read the Bible like Miller. He is highly esteemed for causing the great disappointment?

Two Gods: Jesus declared to be God 325 AD with sun worshipper Emperor Constantine controlling the proceedings because he wanted stability for the Roman Empire.

Three Gods: 381 AD Holy Spirit declared to be God at Council of Constantinople. Catholic Council.
I am not confused. There is 1 God The Father, His Only begotten Son Jesus and there is the Gift of God the holy spirit. The Trinity evolved at the above councils. Even the Catholic Encyclopedia states that the trinity was not a doctrine of primitive Christianity (first century church). The historical record is clear on this.

, James you are not confused but  many  are. Your response to this question will complicate some even further.                                                                                          

Besides James is not even an SDA , and does not subscribe to the SDA view on the Holy Spirit and for that matter the trinity. 

Elijah, your brain and faith is locked and set on SDA, instead of on God through Jesus Christ as the Son of God. No temple could contain God and no denomination can box Him in. Your putting God in the SDA box as the SDA interpretation.

Thank God I learned that lesson decades ago when I broke away from a ministry because of corruption. But the Holy Spirit worked because of the truth in the fellowships. It was the leadership that became corrupt. I learned painfully the difference between man made organizations and the spirit of God that is not dependent on man made organizations but the body of Christ should follow the Holy Spirit via Jesus Christ the head of the Body.

You have not looked up the councils Elijah, to see when and how the trinity developed. You have been told, your stubbornness and lack of desire for the real truth and the spirit is not good. Some people here are open to the truth, as that quest should be a continual one.

James, what is the problem this site is for SDA by SDA that you are here is because you have deceived the owner of the site by telling lies. Satan is the father of lies and there for your father as well. Your pathetic attempts to convert us to happy clappers falls down flat. Because we all know what you are doing and none buys your false doctrines. 

Bro Elijah why are visitots and non Adventists in the church?  See we have an awesome responsibility to point all to Jesus so do the same for Bro. James.

" Preach the gospel, be instant in and out of season.

Thanks for your reply Redva. The trouble with James is he want to convert us to happy clappers and he does not like to discuss our doctrines.

REDVA: Thank you for your reasonable and kind consideration.

Quoting you Bro James

 No temple could contain God and no denomination can box Him in. Your putting God in the SDA box

I learned painfully the difference between man made organizations and the spirit of God that is not dependent on man made organizations but the body of Christ should follow the Holy Spirit via Jesus Christ the head of the Body.

I have delebrately taken thses quotes out of the context you have written because they make sense and I  appreciate them. 

Thank you REDVA, it appears you have understanding of where I am coming from.
