    "Is the Holy Spirit a "He," "She," or “It,” male, female, or neuter?"

    Linguistically, it is clear that masculine theistic terminology dominates the Scriptures. Throughout both testaments, references to God use masculine pronouns.
    It's a 'man's world'. As such, logic would dictate that God could only be the same....

    The Hebrew word for "spirit" (ruach) is feminine in Genesis 1:2. But the gender of a word in Greek or Hebrew has nothing to do with gender identity.
    The article causes confusion for those who are not aware. Feminine and Female, are not the same description, since you can have a masculine female.

    although the word for "spirit" by itself (pneuma) is actually gender-neutral
    The Holy Spirit continues to be labelled with the male theme, in defiance of the above quote.

    Adam was androgynous. Since 'he' was created in Gods image, God is androgynous. Since God is simultaneously Feminine and masculine, this whole thing is a non-issue.

    There is absolutely no biblical basis for viewing the Holy Spirit as the “female” member of the Trinity.
    The trinity is one. There are no 'members'. No 'Females'. The article views God as an entity with human traits and characteristics, and that simply doesn't work.

    The Universe and everything it comprises must balance. God is the ultimate expression of that and the standard all else must comply with. That means Masculine and Feminine in one. Only man would have a problem with that....

    Androgynous is a word that seems to not find any favour, even though it is completely rellevant. Also in Astrology, with neuter being the used word.
    A neutered male is still male though, so neuter is pointless as describing any of it.
