Sorry, I know the audio could be better. I’ll work on getting better audio next time.
Thanks Michael and Lautensack. Thanks L. for the correction.
I'll add three comments;
1 Though LDS might not recognise it, James Talmadge's 'Articles of Faith' assaults the Westminster Confession (e.g http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/creeds3.iv.xvii.i…Talmadge's criticisms are, IMO, ignorant illogical rhetoric, but his stuff is handed out to train LDS missionaries.
2 Where modalism and Sabellianism fail is that they can' explain why Jesus and the Father speak to each other as separate persons (e.g Matt 3:7). Most troublesome to this viewpoint it that Jesus doesn't know all that is on the Father's mind (Matt 24:36).
3 Is it important? Absolutely! If Jesus is truly, fully God and truly, fully human, then he not only shows us what God is truly like, he also shows us what it is to be truly human.
If you want to know what it means to be true to your God-created humanity, look to Jesus.
