For Modalists

In my discussions with Modalists, I always cite the words of Christ in John 17, where Jesus, three times, prays that believers may "be one, as we (Father and Son) are one." (John 17: 11, 21, 22)

Obviously these words show that the Father is not the Son, and vice versa. They also show that the terms "Father" and "Son" are not names to designate "roles" or "modes" of God, but of "persons."

If to be "one" means that the Father and the Son are the same person, then we must, to be consistent, affirm that all believers are destined to become one person.
