I seem to recall that a popluar Protestant preacher, Benny Hinn, once suggested that there are three Persons each Hypostatis. In other words, there are three Fathers, three Sons, and three Holy Ghosts. I wonder where he got this idea from? Perhaps it is due to starting with an idea of the substance of God rather than the three Persons of the Trinity (a criticism aimed often at Western Theology in general)?
Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, and other "Word of Faith" teacher believe God is a man of flesh who only lives, creates, and exercises power because He has faith that He will (their interpretation of Hebrews 11:1 essentially defines faith as New Age positive thinking).
So, since Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are just powerful men, they each have a body, soul, and spirit of their own (in terms of Pentecostal anthropology). Hinn is counting each body, soul, and spirit as part of the Godhead-so he claims a nine-part Godhead. IOW, his grasp of what a hypostasis is is pretty shallow. One WOF-ite once told me Hinn has recanted the nine-part teaching, but I haven't seen evidence of it (last time I went to his website, he was calling Father, Son, and Holy Spirit "manifestations," so maybe he's also imbibed T.D. Jakes' Sabellian tendencies). I don't of any other WOF teacher who has openly taught the nine-part Godhead.Edit:
Sorry, I didn't realize this was such an old thread.
