Early Christian Heresies

In the final part of her 4-part series on the first 300 years of Christianity, Dr. Eugenia Constantinou talks about early Christian heresies.

Questions include:
* How can we define heresies?
* Tell us about a few of the substantial disagreements within the Church during these early years. How contained were heretical groups and their beliefs?
* Is there any scholarly basis to conspiracy theories about the Church covering up scandals as is portrayed in The DaVinci Code or more recently in discussions about the so-called Gospel of Jesus’ Wife?
* What do you think the public fascination with fictional Christian scandals says about our modern faith culture?

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
