PROTESTANTISM IS ANCIENT HERESY
Condemned by the Church in Fourth Century
The doctrine that divides Protestantism also unites them in the same ancient heresy. This heresy was held by the Acephalites and was called the Severian heresy. This heresy is exactly what most
Protestant sects practice to this day. They are without excuse for they know that they are outside the Church and instead of returning they follow the Severians.
This heresy held:
1. that the Church does not need bishops, priests, or deacons.
2. that each man is his own bishop and priest,
3. that each have the right to interpret the Holy Scripture in his own way.
4. that each can teach others as he himself understands and believes.
The Church condemned this heresy and man made doctrine in the 4th century AD.
Thus the Church condemned the Protestant movement a thousand years before it came into existence as a loud protest against the iniquities and tyranny of the popes of Rome..
They also ally themselves with the arch-enemies of Christ and the Church being iconoclasts, that is, against honoring sacred images and the Cross.
They do not honor what Christ honors, the Saints, the Apostles, the Church Fathers, the Martyrs since the beginning, the Theotokos and Virgin Mary, on whom they heap dishonor.
There is nothing new under the Sun and most heretical doctrines were dealt with in the first Seven Ecumenical Synods of the Church.
