How do we know what to believe (and what not to believe) when it comes to the Christian faith? Do you find it difficult to navigate competing ideas about who Jesus is, how to understand the Trinity, and how we are saved? We might not use the term “heresy” much today, and not every disagreement rises to that level, but throughout the church’s history, it has been important for followers of Jesus Christ to distinguish orthodoxy (right belief) from heresy.
This four-week class will introduce people to some of the most significant heresies in the history of the church so we can learn to avoid them and embrace orthodox thinking instead. We will discuss the importance of orthodoxy, the role of heresy, and heresies regarding Scripture, Jesus Christ, the Trinity, salvation, and the church. Register here
