Another Jehovah's Witness Question

A passage from the Jehovah's Witnesses own New World Translation of the Bible:
But Peter said: “An·a·ni′as, why has Satan emboldened you to lie to the holy spirit and secretly hold back some of the price of the field?   As long as it remained with you, did it not remain yours? And after it was sold, was it not in your control? Why have you thought up such a deed as this in your heart? You have lied, not to men, but to God. (Acts 5: 3-4, NWT)
This is just another bit of evidence for the Trinity, at least for the personhood and Divinity of the Holy Spirit.

In Watchtower theology, the holy spirit is not a person, but an impersonal force. So, I would ask, how does one lie to an impersonal force. And Peter makes it clear that when Ananias lied to the Holy Spirit he lied to God.

Just another question to ask.
