This is not an accurate description of Arianism. Classic Christianity teaches that the Trinity - three co-equal "persons" co-substantial, all eternal,in one godhead. Arianism taught that only the Father was eternal; and the second person - the Son - was not eternal nor of equal divinity - rather he was created. According to this definition, Arianism may actually be a more classical case of "shituf" - worshiping a Divine person together with a "less" divine person. You seem to - in error - equate Unitarians and Oneness Pentecostals. Unitarians generally do not acknowledge the divinity of JC - where as oneness pentecostals acknowledge his divinity - but teach a doctrine that the trinity is not persons - but "modes" or "expressions" - very similar to the Hindu idea of one Gd with Brahma being the "creator"; Vishnu the "preserver" and "Shiva" destroyer (although this is, as well, only one view ). Pardon me for getting into a lengthy discussion of this topic - but I have a "thing" for accuracy. BTW - it doesn't surprise me that the late Lubavitch rebbe had a Yedia in these subjects.


Thank you for the explanation. I included some links but did not want to get into the involved discussion since that was not the point of the post. I am not sure, however, that arianism is shituf because it may be understood as J. being a demigod, neither fully god nor man, and this is how Arius' detractors tried to protray what he taught. His own writings did not in majority survive and what he himself believed is not exactly known.Some of what I read contended that Unitariansim is close to Arianism and draws inspiration from it.In any case, I probably already know more about this than I should.
Pico Della Mirandolla and other Christian Kabbalists wrote a lot about Trinity as modes of expression but my understanding is that the Church officially denounced Pico's formulation of Trinity as Chochma, Bina, Daat to be heretical.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe had an amazing grasp of many areas of knowledge.The chiddush here is that he allowed himself to gain knowledge in this area.

An outstanding share! I've just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been conducting a little research on this. And he actually ordered me lunch because I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this issue here on your website.


I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?
