After spending the afternoon in John 14, it would be sin for me to reject Jesus’ words and believe in a modalistic god as some “evangelicals” do. They are not obedient in their faith.
I must obey by believing what Jesus told his disciples, for he speaks to me during these last hours of 2008.
I believe, Lord.
Reminds me of the “Monogenes Hymn,” attributed to the Emperor Justinian in the Byzantine Churches and to St. Severus of Antioch in the Syriac Church:
“Only Begotten Son and Immortal Word of God,
Who for our salvation didst will to be incarnate of the holy Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary,
Who without change didst become man and wast crucified, O Christ our God,
Trampling down death by death, Who art one of the Holy Trinity,
Glorified with the Father and the Holy Spirit: save us.”
