Should We Sing to the Holy Spirit in Worship?

Episode 470 Show Notes 

From the Show

Everything hinges on whether or not the Holy Spirit is God. If the Bible teaches that he’s God, then he must be worshiped together with the Father and the Son. So, I just want to give you two passages of Scripture that I think make it absolutely clear that the Holy Spirit is God. The first one is in the book of Acts, in Acts chapter 5.

Questions in this Episode

1. Where do evil and sin come from? Are they from Satan? Do we just have them? 

2. How should i understand church government? What kind of authority do elders have? 

3. I have been told that we shouldn’t personally address the Holy Spirit in prayer or song because we don’t see that anywhere in Scripture, but the Nicene Creed states that the Holy Spirit, “with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.” Is there any conflict here? I know from John's Gospel that the Spirit's role is to glorify the Son and to lead us in all truth (the Word), but can the Holy Spirit be the direct object of our worship? 

4. Could you explain what Jesus meant when he told us to “remember Lot’s wife”? What does that mean for us today?
