QUESTIONS from a ONENESS PENTECOSTAL

I received a letter from a Oneness Pentecostal. They sent me a list of questions; most of which I found to be poorly worded or just confused. Maybe you can help? Read over this list and maybe give a few responses and I will include them in my response to him. Any help is appreciated.

    This is bizarre. It's like they think we're a bunch of Arians who think that Jesus wasn't God. I think the problem is that they are hyper-focusing on the aspects of Jesus's divinity while ignoring the fact that he is a distinct person of the Godhead (as opposed to one person who takes on multiple personas). One of the best examples of the three distinct persons is during Christ's baptism. Unless he's a schizophrenic, Christ is addressing his father, and his father is answering, but at no point in this discourse is it implied that Christ is an inferior created being.

    No avail? Did he not answer, or did he just respond with histrionics?
