a belief that rejects the orthodox tenets of a religion
This word comes from a Greek word which means to choose It generally refers to a particular kind of false teaching Heresy is not a repudiation of the Bible’s authority but a misrepresentation of its teaching For example, the Bible teaches that God is love It also teaches that God hates the wicked (1 John 4: 8; Psalm 5: 4-6; Romans 9: 13) Any teaching that fails to account for both truths is heretical Universalism with its emphasis on God’s love and its rejection of hell is therefore guilty of heresy because it chooses to believe only part of the truth about God’s love Other heretical beliefs include Modernism, because it accepts the reality of Christ’s humanity but denies His deity; and Arminianism, because it accepts the truth that men are free and responsible for their actions but misinterprets that freedom as an autonomous freedom and not a freedom of choice which is limited by the nature of the object (Matthew 12: 33-35)
Heresy is a belief or action which seriously disagrees with the principles of a particular religion. He said it was a heresy to suggest that women should not conduct services. Doctrine rejected as false by religious authorities. In Christianity, the orthodox theology of the church is thought to be based on divine revelation, and heretics are viewed as perversely rejecting the guidance of the church. Numerous Christian heresies appeared from the 2nd century onwards. Early heresies included Arianism, the Monophysite heresy, Pelagianism, and Donatism. Some heresies, such as Montanism, expressed faith in a new prophet who added to the body of Christian revelation. Some types of Gnosticism were heretical branches of Christianity. The major means of combating heretics in the early church was excommunication. In the 12th-13th century, the Inquisition was established to combat heresy, and heretics who refused to recant were often executed. In the 16th century the Protestant Reformation brought an end to the doctrinal unity of Western Christendom, and the concept of heresy became less important in the various Christian churches, though it continues to exist. The concept of heresy also exists in Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam
