    Hello Clive and thank you for your comment. As I said in the message, the Holy Spirit is indeed not a person. It is given to us upon the laying on of hands after baptism. The only time I believe I used "him" in reference to the Holy Spirit was when I was reading some scriptures from the New King James Version. The confusion comes because in Greek some of the words used to describe the Holy Spirit are considered masculine in the language. It doesn't mean its a person, but many nouns are considered to be masculine, feminine, or neutral. The Greek words Helper, Counselor, and Comforter that are used to describe the Holy Spirit are masculine nouns. So because of that the translators used the words he or him even though the Holy Spirit is not a person and the pronouns used with it should be it.
