It's Time to Play - Name that Heretic!




Do You Know, Your Heretics?

I lived from AD 250 (256)  until AD 336. I lived in Alexandria, Egypt. I served as a presbyter in a church in Alexandria.

I developed the “teaching” that the Christ was not truly divine but was actually a created being. I reasoned that God was so unique in the fact that He alone is self-existent and immutable. I taught that the Son was not self-existent and therefore could not be God. As a result the Son, or Jesus Christ must have been a created being. I was opposed to Trinitarian teaching.



Who am I? 
Do you know your heretics?

Persis beat me to it and Eddie made me double over. :-)

Guess I have to start checking the old blog sites earlier if I want to get in on this. Everyone else already chimed in. Maybe I can get points for pointing out the "Super Man" to this "Lex Luthor." Athanasius.

This is a topic that I don't know much of anything about. I've never even heard of Arius.
