Modalism, Tritheism, Or the Pure Revelation of the Triune God According to the Bible (1994)
Living Stream Ministr

Jonathan Edwards, a highly respected servant of the Lord,
was accused of both tritheism and modalism. He wrote a book
entitled Observations Concerning the Scripture Economy of
the Trinity and Covenant of Redemption, for which he came
under attack by one writer who said:

The writer is informed on unquestionable authority that
there is, or was, in existence a manuscript of Edwards, in
which his views appear to have undergone a great change
in the direction of Arianism or of Sabellianism....”

It is well to give here other examples of church Fathers
who were accused of modalism, tritheism, or both. Tertullian
(A.D. 160-220), who was a leader in the fight against
modalism and who is regarded as orthodox and fundamental,
was accused of Arianism by one who said, “Tertullian, prior to
his falling into the heresy of Montanus, entertained the same
opinions as those of Arius, concerning the Father, the Son,
and the Holy Spirit.”''3

Origen - , anathematised by the second council of Constantinople in 553,

Tertulllian - Montanists were Sabellian

Eusebius of Caesarea

Jerome called Sabellian and heretic

Cyril of Jerusalem -
Jerome calls him an Arian

Erasmus -
Inquisition of Faith

John Calvin
