Is the Holy Spirit all-knowing?



According to Trinitarians the being known as the Holy Spirit is God. As such, if the Holy Spirit is God, then the Holy Spirit would have all the attributes of God, such as being all-knowing.

However so when one reads the Bible, the Gospels specifically, one will actually find that the Holy Spirit is not all-knowing, and this is obviously a problem because if the Holy Spirit is not all-knowing then how can the Holy Spirit be God?

We shall highlight two pieces of evidence that prove that the Holy Spirit is not all knowing, thus showing that the Holy Spirit cannot be God, unless Trinitarians want to tell us that it’s okay for God to not be perfect in his knowledge?

Our first piece of evidence comes from the Gospel of Matthew chapter 11 verse 23 which says:

"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.

The problem increases when you consider the Trinity, according to Trinitarians the Trinity is made up of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. So how is it possible that one of those entities within the Trinity, namely the Holy Spirit, doesn’t know the other 2 figures as Jesus says?

Our second evidence comes from Matthew chapter 24, verse 36 that 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 doesn’t know when the last hour will occur, thereby proving the Holy Spirit isn’t all-knowing and therefore cannot be God, how much sense does it make for God to not know when the end will come?
