On this feast day of St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzum, Fr. Dwight Longenecker has a post at Patheos about Arianism today. Here's a taste:
"Today Arianism takes a different form, and comes to us in the guise of humanism. . . . This watered down Christianity is our modern form of Arianism. The cultural context of the heresy and it’s expression is different, but the essence of the heresy is the same as it always was: “Jesus Christ is a created being. His ‘divinity’ is something that developed or was added to his humanity by God.”
"The difference between Arius and the modern heretics is that Arius was actually explicit in his teaching. The modern heretics are not. They inhabit our seminaries, our monasteries, our rectories and presbyteries. They are the modernist clergy who dominate the mainstream Protestant denominations and who are too many in number within the Catholic Church as well."
