Theological Term of the Week: Arianism

theological-term-of-the-week

Last week’s term: Pantheism – The denial of the personality of God. The belief that God and the universe are synonymous, as opposed to God being a personality.

This week’s term: Arianism -The teaching of Arius (AD 250-336) denying that Jesus Christ was co-eternal, co-equal, and co-essential with God. Many other doctrines are affected by this. (This is the belief of Jehovah’s Witnesses.)
