Christian Spiritual Vision

Respond to the following student discussion with thoughts, opinions, and or facts. Each response needs to be at least 100 words. Student A- A Christological error that the Church declared heretical was Docetism. The Christological teaching of Docetism asserted that Christ was not a real human; he only seemed or appeared to be human. Docetism rejected the belief that Christ was connected to a live birth even it was considered a virgin birth and therefore his existence could not be real or exist in the flesh. Because Christ was not born, Docetism alleged that his existence came straight from heaven without a birth, body or figure so he was not in truth. The church describes Jesus’ death on the cross as a way of redeeming humanity from sin. Docetism not only rebuked this fact, but stated it was not Jesus who carried his cross it was Simon of Cyrene and it was also Simon of Cyrene who died on the cross in place of Jesus. Docetism rejected the fact that there was a resurrection of Christ because Christ did not have a body and was only an illusion. They even went as far to say that Christ never ate, blinked or left footprints. According to Docetism, Jesus never died as payment for our sins and the only way to redemption had to be attained by learning secret knowledge. Student B- One example of a Christological error that early Church declared heretical is Arianism, Arianism is a non-trinitarial Christological doctrine which asserts the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was begotten by God the Father at a point in time, a creature distinct from the Father and is therefore subordinate to him, but the Son is also God. Arius taught that Christ was a creature made by God. By disguising his heresy using orthodox or near-orthodox terminology, he was able to sow great confusion in the Church. He was able to muster the support of many bishops, while others excommunicated him. Arianism was solemnly condemned in 325 at the First Council of Nicaea, which defined the divinity of Christ, and in 381 at the First Council of Constantinople, which defined the divinity of the Holy Spirit. These two councils gave us the Nicene creed, which Catholics recite at Mass every Sunday.
