What is an Ecumenical Council? Ecumenical Councils are those to which the bishops, and others entitled to vote, are convoked from the whole world (oikoumene) under the presidency of the pope or his legates, and the decrees of which, having received papal confirmation, bind all Christians. A council, Ecumenical in its convocation, may fail to. A council, Ecumenical in its convocation, may fail to secure the approbation of the whole Church or of the pope, and thus not rank in authority with Ecumenical councils. Such was the case with the Robber Synod of (Latrocinium Ephesinum), the Synod of Pisa in .

  With some exceptions (e.g., hesychasm), doctrinal development is still far less extensive and less positively regarded in Orthodoxy, as the lack of Ecumenical Councils might indicate. ~This showed that the Holy Spirit guided the Apostles in their decision. What has been the function of ecumenical councils in Church history? The function of ecumenical councils in Church history have made decisions about difficult matters of Faith and morals for the whole Church.

  Jesus Christ is described as “God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,” proclaiming his divinity. 2. Jesus Christ is said to be “begotten, not made,” asserting his co-eternalness with God. 3. Jesus is defined as “from the substance of the Father,” in direct opposition to Arianism.   God raised up men of faith and church councils to protect those ancient boundaries. He did so to protect His flock from heresies promoted by the angels of light St. Paul spoke of in 2 Corinthians Here is a link to the Nicene-ConstantinopolitanCreed. Notice the emphasis placed on the Person of Jesus.

Jesus - Jesus - The dogma of Christ in the ancient councils: The main lines of orthodox Christian teaching about the person of Christ were set by the New Testament and the ancient creeds.

But what was present there in a germinal form became a clear statement of Christian doctrine when it was formulated as dogma. In one way or another, the first four ecumenical councils were all concerned. Although the bishops endeavored to support the mandates of previous councils, new ideas and arguments were introduced, which opened new controversies.

The mandates have been that: God became human (incarnation) as Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus of Nazareth is “One person with two natures; one human, the other divine. In the history of Christianity, the first seven ecumenical councils include the following: the First Council of Nicaea inthe First Council of Constantinople inthe Council of Ephesus inthe Council of Chalcedon inthe Second Council of Constantinople inthe Third Council of Constantinople from – and finally, the Second Council of Nicaea in   The Council of Chalcedon was also significant because it ratified the creeds of Nicaea and Constantinople.

And it condemned the false doctrines of Nestorius and Eutyches. The council affirmed the single personality of Christ and the authenticity and perfection of both His natures, human and divine.

Besides dealing with matters of theology, the. The Council of Nicea overwhelmingly affirmed the deity and eternality of Jesus Christ and defined the relationship between the Father and the Son as “of one substance.” It also affirmed the Trinity—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were listed as three co-equal and co-eternal Persons.

They affirmed that Christ is indeed one single divine person, not some alliance of a divine and a human person, as in Nestorianism. The subject, the “I,” the personal agent whom we meet in Jesus Christ is singular, not plural; this person is “the Only-begotten Son, God, Word, Lord” — the second person.

Councils and synods of the Christian church have shaped and informed the church's theology, doctrine, structure and relationship with both God and man since the time of the apostles.

For better or worse. The councils, over time, provide a profiling of the issues the Christian religion has wrestled with over its long history. This is a fascinating timeline of history for any Christian. The divine Word which is God is incarnated in Jesus Christ.

He is the Word made flesh. (This is also called the "doctrine of the Logos"). The Nature of Christ "Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He has two natures, one divine and one human. Both are united in one person, and that Person is divine." See Also: Church CouncilsFile Size: 41KB.

The councils of Nicaea (AD ), Constantinople (AD ), Ephesus (AD ) and Chalcedon (AD ) are examples, which produced what we know today as the Nicene Creed and the Definition of Chalcedon. These statements about the Holy Trinity and the person of Christ are still important and instructive for us today, subordinate to the Scriptures.

In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Council of the Church may be the chief governing body of the church which holds the power to make the final decision on any spiritual matter that will affect any member of the church. Its existence and status are uncertain, and the body has not been formally convened since the presidency of John Taylor.

Councils of Carthage: Under St. Cyprian. Dealt with the reconciliation of those who apostatized during the Decian Persecution First Council of Nicaea: Dealt with the deity of Christ and declared Arianism to be heretical. Arianism (Arius, d. ) taught that Jesus was a created being, not divine.

Nontrinitarianism is a form of Christianity that rejects the mainstream Christian doctrine of the Trinity—the teaching that God is three distinct hypostases or persons who are coeternal, coequal, and indivisibly united in one being, or essence (from the Greek ousia).Certain religious groups that emerged during the Protestant Reformation have historically been known as antitrinitarian, but.

Finally the only-begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ, who became incarnate by the action of the whole Trinity in common and was conceived from the ever virgin Mary through the cooperation of the holy Spirit, having become true man, composed of a rational soul and human flesh, one person in two natures, showed more clearly the way of life.

The Council of Nicaea was called and presided over by the Roman emperor, Constantine, in order to address divisions in churches under Rome’s authority. It was the first of seven such councils.

Orthodox churches accept some or all of these councils. The Seven Ecumenical Councils, vol. 14 (A Select Library of Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers of the Christian Church, Second Series; ed., Henry R. Percival; reprint, Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, ), From Pope Agatho’s letter to the Sixth Council: “For if anybody should mean a personal will, when in the holy Trinity there are said to be.

Incarnation: The Person and Life of Christ Thomas F. Torrance The late Thomas F. Torrance has been called "the greatest Reformed theologian since Karl Barth" and "the greatest British theologian of the twentieth century" by prominent voices in the academy.

Ecumenical councils are usually convened by the Pope or are at least confirmed or recognized by him. Book of Revelation Last book of the New Testament, called Apocalypse, written by John, filled with powerful symbols, Christ will come again, gives hope and courage.

Catholicity (from Greek καθολικότητα της εκκλησίας, "catholicity of the church") is a concept pertaining to beliefs and practices widely accepted across numerous Christian denominations, most notably those that describe themselves as Catholic in accordance with the Four Marks of the Church, as expressed in the Nicene Creed of the First Council of Constantinople in.

Christ in the Old Testament and the Ecumenical Councils; There is an essential aspect Of the theological presuppositions of all Ecumenical Councils concerning the Person of Christ which is either missing or has been rejected by those following Augustine. This raises the question of whether those who do so really accept these Councils.Jesus Christ is perfect humanity and undiminished deity united in one person forever without transference or communication of the attributes of one nature to another.

The Creeds of Nicea and Chalcedon remain today as the expression of the faith of the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and most Protestant churches.Jesus of Nazareth (7–2 BC/BCE to 26–36 AD/CE), also known as Jesus Christ, is the central figure of Christianity, revered by most Christians as the incarnation of God, and is also an important figure in several other religions.

The name "Jesus" is an Anglicization of the Greek Ίησους (Iēsous), itself a Hellenization of the Hebrew יהושע (Yehoshua) or Hebrew-Aramaic ישוע.
