Re: Modalism

I count three. Not exactly sure what you mean by "add them up" - I don't think that is a very accurate or biblical way to look at the Trinity.

Ohio, I'm really sorry that you think that...

Re: Modalism

My brother Ohio, I have seen you use the term "Triune God" many times. Sometimes I've even seen you referring to the "Trinity". I'm curious as to what you believe about the "Tri" in Triune God. I'm...

Re: Modalism

Ohio,

Although I have studied the Bible for about 50 years, I do not feel qualified to consider my personal views and interpretations definitive or authoritative in any way, shape or form. I have...

Re: Modalism

Sons to Glory! Nobody is "trying to nail down exact nature of the Triune God", at least not me. And even if someone was, that is their prerogative. There is no forum rule against trying to nail down...

Re: Modalism

Sons to Glory! I already answered your question. Please stop interjecting as an attempt to sidetrack this discussion. If you want to start a thread about "the practical purpose of knowing doctrine"...

Re: Modalism

No, Ohio, you didn't explain, and that's why we went nowhere. I asked you repeatedly what you meant by "calling on the Lord", and then you huffed and you puffed...and then you gave up. Same thing is...

Re: Modalism

On more than one occasion, Witness Lee taught that God was "one person". (as in the quote above) On many other occasions he taught the orthodox view of "the three persons of the Godhead—the Father,...

My brother Raptor, did you happen to miss these quotes I provided the other day?

Re: Modalism

But Witness Lee sure did, and Witness Lee and his teaching that "Jesus became the live-giving Spirit" is what concerns HBJ.


You keep bringing this up. Where have I, or anyone I have quoted, put...

Brother Ohio,

"and the Son is also the Spirit"
"the Man who ended the old creation became the life-giving Spirit"
"He became the Spirit who gives...

Re: Modalism

My brother Sons to Glory, you have made it pretty clear - you don't think there is such a thing as heresy. Everything is just a big mystery and we need not bother about teaching or doctrine. My post...

Re: Modalism

Of course it doesn't. That would be modalism, and the Bible doesn't teach modalism!


Oh, he most certainly did. Here are just a few I conjured up in just a minute or two.

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

Great post Ohio! Unfortuneately, I didn't see it until right after I made aron's post the "featured post", otherwise this would have been in that slot. (not taking away anything from aron's great...

The Main Problem with the Local Church

Great thread with some great contributions. Thanks HBJ for starting this one.

To me, the main problem with the Local Church is that the whole thing is based upon the personal mission of a man...

Good points Raptor. What I can tell you from my personal experience that I didn't see where Lee taught modalism either...that is for the 20 years I sat at the man's feet. I also thought that 1 Cor....

Re: Modalism

This goes to a crucial point - just because a genuine Christian is taught heresy does not make them a heretic - it only makes them deceived when it comes to that particular doctrine, teaching or...

Further thoughts on Ravi Zacharias

Ravi Zacharias was, in many ways, the ultimate itinerant preacher - a "free agent" of sorts, not tied to any one church, church group or denomination. Although this idea of an itinerant preacher is...

Re: Christ Living through His Believers as the Best ____?

Yes, Christ loves our wife better than we do. He also loves our children better than we do. And he loves our boss and our neighbors better than we do too.

I'm afraid that "Letting Christ live...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

Re: Ravi Zacharias 1946-2020

Ravi Zacharias did not invent Christian intellectualism, but his contributions in this area to the Body of Christ, and even to mankind, are nearly inestimable. "Let my people think" wasn't just a...
