A description of modalism, or Trinitarianism?
This is in fact what a lot Trinitarian teachers, pastors, and pew-warmers believe. They refer to God as a “He”, not a “they”. They think of God as a friend, not three friends. They pray to God as a person, not a community. Their God is a person, not three persons. They redefine the word “person”, or rather, neglect to define it at all so that they can avoid the obvious contradiction. The “persons” these people believe in are nothing more than sock puppets controlled simultaneously by the mysterious divine nature who works behind the scenes controlling these three sock puppets.
Lexham Survey of Theology
In modalism, on the other hand, the Father, Son, and Spirit are not individual persons within the Triune Godhead, but rather they are three modes of being in which one divine person exists.
