Receive the Holy Ghost

Of course we say “Receive the Holy Ghost” rather than bestowing the Holy Ghost on a person who is baptized. The Holy Ghost is a God. He is a perfect son of our Heavenly Father, just as Christ was. He became God before the world was. We cannot command a god. We can command a person to live so that that God will be willing, of his own accord, to dwell in that person’s heart. But we follow the commands of God, we do not tell him what to do.
