Why the Holy Spirit is not male, even when it's been refered to as a he.
The spirit is wisdom, IS the Holy Spirit. Yes it talks about the wisdom is being a gift of the Holy Spirit, but what people fail to understand is that, it's not just a quality by itself. Wisdom is simply a FACET of the Holy Spirit, you can't take out a facet in cut diamond andhave it be whole. Just like if you were to talk about a FACET of the diamond you're talking about the diamond itself as a whole you can't just take out a facet.
Wisdom is not just a PART of the Holy Spirit or JUST a gift. It IS the holy spirit. As it is written here in Proverbs 8, it is a conscious being as it is SPEAKING to the reader. A quality in itself, cannot speak to anything. Also as wisdom is speaking to the reader it talks about how she was with God in the beginning before the heavens and the earth was made in Proverbs 8:22-31. It talks about being happy, just as a being can be happy or unhappy, but a mere quality itself has no ability to feel.
