    Was Edwards dismissed because he taught modalism?

      Hi Gerhard,

      From what I have read, both Augustine and Edwards used illustrations of the Trinity, and quite heavily. Augustine acknowledged them to be “inadequate” and was alert to their tendency towards modalism. Edwards, however, did not exercise the same caution. Edwards favored the psychological triad giving little attention to its modalistic dangers.

      As to whether this lead to a dismissal, I am unaware, and couldn't find anything on it. All I know is that it is much better simply to reiterate the confessional formulations of the Trinity which have been affirmed by the church down through the centuries.

      God bless,
      William

        I fully agree. I believe they reflect the Scriptures' teaching.
