Conclusion. (Of saint Severus). Since, however, all heretics have the habit of hiding their evil thinking in order to deceive the listeners and make them believe that they want the truth, resembling in this the Evil who is the source of all wickedness, and many times they make wrong use of the Divine Scriptures and the doctors of the Mysteries, to hide their impiety, and they make fraudulent apologies in order to escape what they are reproached for, like the Jews, who verbally demonstrate that they accept the Law and the Prophets, but in fact they deny them, and similarly the Ammonites who in words confess the true Son of God the Father, but in reality deny him, and Paul of Samosata and Nestorius and their followers, who being careful to mislead, they, in words, do not confess two Sons and two Christs, but one, but in reality, they are reproached for teaching two Sons and two Christs, then the Julianists, who in words confess that Christ suffered, but in reality demonstrate that they [follow] the opposite [doctrine], so also those who dare to utter substances and natures concerning the Holy and consubstantial Trinity, in order to deceive those who listen [to them] and to escape from an evident confutation, they say just in words one God and one Divinity and one substance, that is, nature, which they prove to confess to be nothing but a mere word in mere thought. [And] while they are blotting out to confess principally one God and one Divinity, one substance, that is, nature in three Holy hypostases of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, as the Divine Scriptures and the Holy Fathers teach, they are evidently caught boldly confessing gods, divinities, substances and natures concerning the Holy and consubstantial Trinity, as was shown through the blasphemies put down [above]. No one should support them, because in the Scripture those who confess substances, natures, gods and divinities concerning the Holy and consubstantial Trinity are anathematized, although they say [that] these [gods] are consubstantial, as also the Holy Theodosius repudiated, who [now] is among the saints. No one must support heretics, because, as with lambskin, they cover and conceal their wickedness through beautiful words [taken] from the Holy Scriptures, and they do not think what they [really] say and do not say what they [really] think, so that no one gets bored by them, they, in fact had learned this from the Evil, their father.
