    Default capitalization, when

    This is in reference to Christian articles. Do you have to capitalize every time you use he, him, spirit (that is in reference to the Holy Spirit)

    Thanks
    David

    Default Re: capitalization, when

    According to several Christian writer style manuals that I checked, if you are using a pronoun that is making reference to either God or Jesus, then it should be capitalized. If you are referring specifically to the Holy Spirit, then Spirit should be capitalized.

    Hey, thanks again.

    Feel like I should make an attempt of returning some kind of thanks.

    I'll leave with a quote

    "They say curiousity killed the cat, I say the cat died nobly"
