Is the Holy Spirit All Knowing?
By Sami Zaatari
According to Christians the deity of the Holy Spirit is God, therefore this logically means that this deity is All-Knowing since God is All-Knowing, Christians will even tell you that the Holy Spirit is indeed All Knowing (i.e. missionary Sam Shamoun).
However so when one reads the Bible, the Gospels specifically, one will actually find that the Holy Spirit is not All Knowing, that it lacks certain knowledge here and there, obviously this is a problem for Christians because how can the Holy Spirit be God if it is not All Knowing?
We shall highlight two pieces of evidence that prove that the Holy Spirit is not all knowing, which will prove that this being is not God, which will prove that Christianity is actually false for those who believe the Holy Spirit is God.
Our first piece of evidence comes from the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 11 verse 27 which reads:
"All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him"
Here we have Jesus saying that no one knows the Father except Jesus, this obviously means the Holy Spirit doesn't know the Father since the Holy Spirit isn't Jesus. Jesus goes on to say that no one knows the Son except the Father, once again this shows that the Holy Spirit does not know the Son neither, so not only does the Holy Spirit not know the Father, he doesn't know the Son neither!
If the Holy Spirit was all-knowing you would expect it to know both the Father and Son, however so Jesus is clear that he is the only one who knows the Father, and that the Father is the only one who knows him.
This is one case, yet there is still more. Our second evidence comes from Matthew chapter 24, verse 36 which reads:
But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
So as you can see Jesus says that ONLY the Father knows the last hour, this obviously excludes everyone else who isn't the Father since only means only, if only Jack knows something specific then that means only Jack knows and not Bob and Harry!
So the Holy Spirit does not know the last hour, which shows it is not God since only God knows the last hour, so these are 2 separate incidents that reveal the Holy Spirit is not all knowing.
Therefore after all this the Holy Spirit cannot be God, but does that mean you lose the Holy Spirit and that you should be all sad now? Off course not, the Holy Spirit is very real, and this being exists, however so your only mistake as a Christian is mistaken identity concerning the Holy Spirit, you have wrongly been taught that this being is God, yet now you know the truth that it is not God.
