 Restoring the Ancient Church, Chapter 3
Christian apologists such as Justin, Athenagoras, and others who wished to rebut pagan criticisms of their doctrine, defended their faith by claiming that they worshipped the same God as the pagan philosophers.

 Why do you spend so much time and energy trying to find fault with the Mormons? Is this a Christian practice?

 Examining Doctrines Forums -> The Holy Spirit
Milton's muse is the Holy Spirit, which inspired the Christian Bible, not one of the nine classical muses who reside on Mount Helicon—the “Aonian mount” of I.15.
Many who believe in the Trinity doctrine, think that the Holy Spirit is the third person of a Godhead, equal to the Father and to the Son.
Therefore, we should reject their false teachings that allege that the Spirit [ru'ach] or Holy Ghost is apart of some Godhead for which they falsely claim has three coequal beings and/or part of beings as its constituent members.
