#01 - Sabellius - The Great Pretender
Important Notice: A warning about Gregory A. Boyd.
Although we are recommending his excellent book on Oneness Theology entitled, "Oneness Pentecostals and the Trinity". We cannot recommend other works by this author. Gregory A. Boyd has embraced the heresy called Open Theism. Unfortunately, Greg Boyd is guilty of what Glenroy Clarke has often stated, "Some people run hard away from one heresy, but they run too far to the other side and fall into the ditch of another heresy".
In this case, the old axiom stands true. “A broken clock is right twice a day".
Examining Oneness Pentecostalism
Many Christians consider Oneness Pentecostalism to be just another Christian denomination. On the surface, Oneness Pentecostals appear to be in line with orthodox Christianity. They claim to believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But a closer examination reveals that Oneness Pentecostals are anything but “Christian”.
