Theological Term of the Week: Gnosticism

theological-term-of-the-week

This week’s term:

Gnosticism – The teaching of the Gnostics. They taught God was utterly remote from the material creation, and that He ruled intermediately through other beings (gods) who diminished in dignity according to their nearness to the world of created matter.

Review time!

Here’s last week’s term:

Arianism – The teaching of Arius (A.D. 250-336) denying that Jesus Christ was co-eternal, co-equal, and co-essential with God. Many other doctrines are affected by this.

Now, let’s try to use these in a sentence. 😉
