This week we take a look at the first major Christological heresy, Arianism. Arius claimed that Christ was a creature made by God. He was the greatest of all God's creation, but he was a creature and therefore not himself God. In responding to this heresy at the Council of Nicea in 325 and the Council of Constantinople in 381, the Church would give us the Creed that we still use today to express and affirm our faith in Jesus Christ as being "consubstantial" (of the same being) with the Father.
