The Holy Ghost is God.
...
There is one God.
It is the Father.
It is Jesus Christ.
It is the Holy Ghost.
This seems like a change in your position since earlier in this thread when you were claiming that the Holy Ghost was "an appendage of God" and "an it" and not wanting to call Him a He.
More a change in nuance.
The Holy Ghost is of God, not another God.

Yes, but he has moved from appendages to one being bringing even greater problems in understanding.
He has stated that Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and The Father are the same being thus produces the implication that Jesus is His own Father and Jesus even gave birth to Himself.
It is written..."In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1)
Is that easier to understand than what I wrote?
This belief would also make Jesus a ventriloquist in a number of places in the Bible when a voice spoke from heaven from the Father to the person on earth that was Jesus and even called Himself His own son.
When the Word was manifested as Jesus, He gave up some of His powers of Godliness.
All knowledge, for instance.
Another problem with the "one being" belief would mean that the Father and the Spirit also were killed and crucified and rose again unless that was another magic trick like ventriloquism.
I can see the dilemma.
But one manifestation of the Father can have separate experiences than the others.
Jesus needed food. Does that mean the Holy Ghost needed food?
No.
The Word, God, was manifested in the flesh so He could partake in all the things associated with life on earth. He had to endure all the things that seem to direct or influence our lives: like hunger, thirst, cold, temptation, pain, tiredness...and death.
Plus there was that adherence to the Law thing.
But He also experienced family, synagogue, mercy, joy, and all the things that come from obedience to His Father.
Without all those things, He wouldn't have been capable of understanding what being of "dust" entails.
I just love Him more every day!
