In another thread a person made the statement, "He is a Modalist". That was a new word to me. Also others went on to say this was a denial of the trinity. I read their explanations as well as looking up the word. So help me understand the problem. The English word Person comes from the Latin word persona and the greek word prósōpa. Both meant the mask an actor held in front of his face to play a part. Actors played more than one character and when they changed from one character to another they changed the mask. The New Testament uses the word persona, thus indicating a mask. Thus, I do not see how saying God showed or manifest himself in three ways, three persona poses a problem with the trinity. I believe everyone on the BB would agree that God is one God. To say that this one God has shown himself using three persona does not, IMHO at this time, indicate a denial of the trinity. Explain the problem to me as you see it. Thanks.
