Terminology Tuesday: Docetism

This is an ancient heresy stating that Jesus Christ was really a spirit being and only “appearing” to be a man.

1 John 4: 2-3 has the apostle Paul refuting this heresy: “By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; and this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.” 

God Bless
