I’m not sure how misperceptions get started. Here is one some Christian believers perpetuate. I first heard it as a teenager and have encountered it frequently throughout my life. Friends sometimes say, “I love Jesus with all of my heart, but I am scared of the Holy Spirit.” Maybe their fear stems from English translations that refer to Him as a ghost. Or, maybe they fear Him because they cannot visualize Him the way they visualize Jesus. I don’t know.
