The [[heresy]] of Jehovah's Witnesses is clearly presented in their books; some of which are the following:
*Their book "''The Truth that leads to eternal life''," P. 24: [The Holy Spirit is not a Person, but God’s effective Power.]
*Their book "'
Let God Be True
Article should mention Orthodox Church position;
", P. 113: [The allegation of the clergy that the Holy Spirit is a third Spiritual Person, is an allegation based on a weak basis. It is the result of bad translation of the Greek original text, giving a word that means Person. But actually the origin means "breeze" or "wind",
as the breeze or the wind is invisible so also is God's Spirit. Whenever God’s Spirit comes upon a person, that person receives an authorization from God to perform a certain work. The Holy Spirit is the Power of God Almighty and Invisible. He is the Power that motivates God's servants to do His will.]
*Their book "''This is eternal life''", P. 176
[The Spirit is Power not a Person. He is the Effective Holy Power originating from the bountiful source God.]
*Their book "
Talk from the Holy Scriptures''", P. 132: [God
s Holy Spirit is His Effective Power.]
To sum up, their denial of the Hypostatic Nature of the Holy Spirit is a part of their denial of the Three Persons. Accordingly they deny the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.
