The heresy of Patripassianism is synonymous with the heresy of modalism, and is called patripassianism from the Latin patri and passio, meaning “father” and “suffer,” because the belief asserts that Christ was the incarnate God the Father who suffered for our sins. This term is used to describe the heresy in the Western Church, when originally the term to describe it in the Eastern Church was Sabellianism. Today, Sabellianism or Modalism is used almost exclusively, and is colloquially described by adherents as “Oneness Theology.”
Modern proponents include TD Jakes and other Oneness Pentecostals, Unitarians, and select others.
