When discussing theology, I've come to realize that not only is personal study of doctrine a necessary component to faith, but it is something that shouldn't be kept to oneself. I want to share my journey, both past and ongoing, into the realm of theology. Through this, I hope that you will gain insight into the Christian faith as a whole. Before reading anything else, I suggest you read the introduction and definitions (found in the pages tabs above) so you may better understand where I am coming from in everything I write. Because many of my posts are on heresies, there is also a page above with a family tree of heresies and links to all the posts I have so far on the topic.

Heresy of the Week: Monothelitism

Last week of the "mono" heresies--the final attempt at "compromise" that was, too, ultimately condemned as heretical.
Monothelitism was a 7th century heresy originally conceptualized to be an olive branch to believers of Monophysitism.  There were two reiterations of this; the doctrine of one energy (Monoenergism) and the doctrine of one will (Monothelitism).  Ultimately, Monoenergism, Monophysitism and Monothelitism were condemned as heretical at the 680 Third Council of Constantinople.
