Yesterday (September 24th), Kris Vallotton posted a quote on Facebook from a guy named Jack Taylor, who is also a member of the New Apostolic Reformation (See the post here, or the picture below). The quote said, “The Holy Spirit is Jesus without skin.” This claim removes the distinctions between the person of God the Son and the person of God the Holy Spirit, and very closely resembles Modalist heresy (Modalism is the belief that God does not exist in three distinct persons and remain one God, but is instead one person and one being with three different modes or forms that He appears in at different times).
This is not the first time Vallotton has said stuff that pointed to Modalism. In this video, you can see Vallotton teaching that Jesus and the Father are one person and that Jesus is merely a manifestation, whereas the orthodox view is that God is three persons yet one triune being.
Vallotton is a pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, CA, which has had such popular members as their senior Pastor Bill Johnson and the popular CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) band, Jesus Culture. He also oversees the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, which supposedly teaches people how to perform miracles and receive prophecy.
It should come as no surprise that Vallotton has embraced an anti-Trinitarian heresy, as the only way we know about the Trinity is from the Bible. Vallotton is a member of the New Apostolic Reformation, a modern day Montanist cult that teaches that new prophecy is being given and that the Bible is either incomplete, insufficient, or both. He himself also rejects the sufficiency of Scripture and chases new prophecies and extra-Biblical revelation. Such a rejection of the basis of orthodoxy is bound to lead to more heresy.

“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil...
“JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.”
