The Holy Spirit

What does Christianity teach about the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is God, one with the Father and the Son. One of God’s many blessings to all believers is the companionship of the Holy Spirit who acts as our advocate, counselor and helper teaching, guiding, strengthening and comforting us.

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession — to the praise of his glory.

Ephesians 1:13-14

What does Mormonism teach about the Holy Spirit?

Mormonism teaches that the Holy Ghost provides inspiration and witness to help worthy Mormons make the right choices. Some describe his work as a burning in the bosom.

In Mormonism, the greater one’s worthiness, the stronger the Holy Ghost’s presence.

As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we should make ourselves worthy to receive this special messenger and witness of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
