        Of course, a handful of texts which show one thing from Scripture
do not a theology make. But when several texts clearly teach some truth
of Scripture, they do serve to indicate the limits of scriptural theology.
The passages that show Modalism to be unscriptural are not those which
teach the deity of Christ, but those which show the Father, Son and the
Holy Spirit acting simultaneously - Mat. 3:16-17 for instance.
