Ancient Churches Lexicon Entry:


Back to: Lexicon Index | Lexicon Home

Because of the degeneration of the Most Ancient Church, there were several doctrinal systems and heresies separate from the church during the most ancient period (AC 337, AC 442). These heresies, each having its own name, sprung up out of the church called “Cain” (AC 332). And even though these heresies were not part of the true Most Ancient Church, they were far more profound in their thought than any doctrinal system today (AC 442).
