Malcom's Modalism

Who can deny such a statement? And, to help someone get to know God personally is God, you must speak forth the truth and not lies. One lie would be to say Jesus is the Spirit or the Father is the Son or the Spirit is the Father. For example, you said,

Can you not see it is your very own doctrine that is blocking people when you teach falsely? Since you can not even back up what you say in the Word of God when you speak this modalism, why do you still cling to this false belief? That is the question you ought to ask yourself and not focus on others so much. How can you help others and put yourself in their shoes if your are going to unleash upon them false teaching and if you can't even help yourself? This is not the love of the Lord. You can not walk in head knowledge of the Bible to save you, because God regenerates the spirit first and then the mind becomes renewed as the spirit communicates to the mind, will and the emotions of soul what was received from God indwelling in man's spirit.

I would recommend you take a look at the mistake in your words here,

With the greatest of respect I did mean that God has not revealed Himself adequately or otherwise, if you would but read my words again

I have yet to meet the living human who can adequately explain all that is within the scriptures

I can not respect these words because you are cutting off the part of your sentence to be cunning. In fact I must refuse your attempts in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The truth of your mistaken assumption is that God HAS revealed Himself adequately. And, "otherwise" is certainly not an alternative in your self-exaltation, for humbly, I have met many who can adequately explain the Trinity despite your hostility to God's revelation adequately explained and revealed in His 3 Persons being God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit. Your being doubletongued, saying you believe in the Trinity, and yet it is inadequate for you according to the revelation given to "living humans" (your words). This is your point of pride, pointing back to self. If God provides adequately, and man is given to be able to explain adequately, then your claim otherwise that others can not, is pointing to you as the center in self-exaltation. Shame on you!

It seems to myself that the Trinity doctrine is something one takes on faith, or one disregards. As I have said in other places I have yet to meet the living human who can adequately explain all that is within the scriptures. Let alone this one doctrine.
I see no justification for this prideful attitude of yours - "let alone this one doctrine". To you I am sure it is merely just a doctrine, and not personally revealed since you are of the belief what God has adequately expressed cannot be expressed adequately by others whom God has made in His image and saved by grace. Your feelings are not so trustworthy, "I felt had offended you". Since I was not offended, this means that you have made a mistake in overassuming and treat it as a self-exalation.

Your words are dangerous.
