1.
As to the Holy Spirit, if He is not fully God, the implications for salvation are again serious. Scripture teaches that the Holy Spirit regenerates believers and indwells and fills them, but if the Holy Spirit is a lesser God or no God at all, how can we be sure that He can do any of these things? Moreover, unless He is coequal in being and purpose with the Father and the Son, what guarantees that even if He tried to do such things, the Father and the Son would recognize his actions as appropriate and relate to us accordingly?
