The purpose of this website is to “contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3), especially by defending the first article of the Christian faith, that there is one God, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 8:6). The goal in all this is to glorify God, and help His people better understand what God has revealed about Himself and His Son Jesus Christ.
The central points of the Christian faith, the gospel according to the scriptures, may be summed up as follows:
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible;
And in the man Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son, our Lord, who was crucified and died for our sins, and was buried, and on the third day rose again from the dead; who ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from which he shall come to judge the living and the dead;
And in the Holy Spirit;
And in the resurrection of the flesh, eternal judgement, the kingdom of God and Christ, and the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. Amen.
The Christian doctrine promoted by this site is Biblical Unitarianism, which is defined by the simple confession that the one God is one person, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that Jesus is the human Son and Christ of God.
The name of this site, ‘Contra Modalism’, mean ‘Against Modalism’, as the original aim of this site is oppose this serious and prevalent heresy.
Modalism is the belief that the one God is one person who exists or manifests himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This was condemned by the early church as a denial of the Christian faith, because by making the Son out to be the same person, or rational individual being, as the Father, Modalism denies the real existence of God’s only-begotten Son altogether, making the Son the Father and the Father the Son. Since the latter half of the fourth century, most (but not all) trinitarianism has really been a variation of this heresy, teaching that Jesus is not the Son of the one God, but rather is the one God Himself.
“Neither shall light ever be darkness as long as light exists, nor shall the truth of the things pertaining to us be controverted. For truth is that than which nothing is more powerful. Every one who might speak the truth, and speaks it not, shall be judged by God.” -Justin Martyr
