HISTORY of Christian Theology

Comes from a Greek term meaning “sect,” and was used by the early Church theologians to identify doctrines that they rejected as not orthodox. The term does not refer to unbelief but ideas held by some baptized Christian that was not in conformity with orthodox authorities. During the Reformation the various groups referred to the doctrines of other sects as heresy.
