Modalism is one of their favorite teachings. Oh, they love the doublespeak! Leeists do teach modalism, no matter how much they say they don't believe it. It is in actuality denying the Trinity of God's 3 Persons as distinct in the Triune Godhead. It is a pridefully puffed up teaching to think "God is a threefold Person" and the "Father is the Son" (these are quotes of Witness Lee) to get leeists to think they are onto something brand new to self-exalt themselves with as the most spiritual people that ever lived and mark themselves unique in all of creation even above all of Christendom. But what this teaching actually conveys a heart willing to alter God's Word (Rev. 22.18,19) with eternal consequences.
The Godhead is not a Person. The Godhead does not have folds or modes. The 1st Person is not the 2nd Person. How absurd to say the Godhead is a Person of 3 Persons to confuse the meaning of Persons in the Trinity. Satan is the author of confusion. This is confusing the meaning of what God's 3 Persons are and debasing the Godhead down to man's interpretation narrow-minded thinking. They can't understand how the Father is not the Son and how God's 3 Persons are not a Person. In the Godhead what is the point of saying there are 3 Persons, only then to say the 1st Person is the 2nd Person and mentioning of a 4th Person to these 3 Persons!? Please do not speak of the Father as being the Son. What is the point of saying the Trinity is 3 Persons; then, in doublespeak, saying the Triune God is a Person? The Godhead is not a quaternity of 4 Persons.
Let such pet teachings which are unproven in Scripture simply die on the cross. What they do is disrespectful to God's Word. For leeists also say that they are God, just like that. But a leeist is just a person. Could it be in their confusion, since a leeist is a person and claims the Godhead is a Person, therefore since they believe they are a person of God, they must be God too? These two ideas of modalism and theosis are being used together, yet have long since been considered a heresy to the Church. The rallies around modalism (albeit simultaneously denying it) by leeists have never been able to reasonably and adequately explain the plethora of quotes by Witness Lee and Ron Kangas and others with the same usage and vein by leeists for decades even to this day.
With regard to 2 Cor. 3.17, "Now the Lord is that Spirit," the emphasis here is on the word "Now," for the Lord has risen to the right hand of the Father and has given His Spirit to indwell as the veil is now rent. Never be so overassuming as to think this means the Lord is the Spirit in the sense they derive it, the prime teaching of modalists. Misreading the Scriptures is not a humble position to take at all. Considering all the Scripture that keeps the Son and the Spirit distinct (and we can find no verses making them the same in all regards), there should be no excuse for priding oneself on the special teaching of modalism, all the while saying they are not modalist. This is doubletalk. The infamy of the doubletongue by leeists truly excites the flesh and I am sure they get off on it. As the doubletongue is given energy, sin begets sin, and you will see more doubletalk in future episodes, for it is like a drug and can't be stopped. Rationalization upon rationalization never is a sign of repentance.
In Witness Lee modalism, does it feel like those in the dark are leading gullible souls down a path of destruction? No matter how hard they and Witness Lee try marry Witness Lee to Watchman Nee by altering the latter's writings, creating new writings and by other means, Nee and the little flock had no affiliation with them later on. If Nee was released from prison, his chastisement would be palpable against Witness Lee. For example, Nee said, "Always remember that God has committed Christ, the Holy Spirit, the word, and the light to the church. Today she is able to give light, word, the Holy Spirit, and Christ to men. The one difficulty is our uncleanness, our impurity" (The Ministry of God's Word, p. 243, CFP white covers). Christ and the Holy Spirit are spoken of separately which are also distinct from God the Father in the Godhead. Jesus Christ is the 2nd Person of the Godhead. The 3rd Person is the Holy Spirit which is God's life. The Holy Spirit is the life of the Father and the Son, and the Holy Spirit has eternal life. The life of the Godhead is eternal. The reason men will confuse God's simple explanation of His 3 Persons is because of "uncleanness, our impurity". Recall John 14.16, "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever." If there is another comforter besides Jesus, then they are not the same, thus Jesus is not the Spirit. Read verse 17-20 to see the different use of words "him" and "I".
The heresy of modalism is given by a false witness ("christianmomof3"). I am saddened for her three children because she will teach them the same as she believes.
