21: Is the Holy Spirit Fully God?
Many people would verbally claim to believe that the Holy Spirit is fully God, but yet there is still a lot of confusion about the nature of the Holy Spirit. Some people seem to believe the Holy Spirit is some sort of “cosmic force” like we see in the Star Wars movies. But Christian orthodoxy tells us that the Holy Spirit is far greater than that.
God exists in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Godhead is distinct and unique from each other, but they are each fully God.
In this episode, Kenny specifically focuses on the divinity of the Holy Spirit, clearly making the case that the Holy Spirit is God.
