"Heresy" in context

Heresy is the principle of rejecting fundamental religious teachings and beliefs. It is a form of nonconformism and disobedience to established doctrines, usually within a religious setting. Over time, heretical ideas may become more entrenched, becoming accepted as orthodoxy, while some ostensible heresy may become passe. Heresy is particularly common in the Abrahamic religions of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, but it also occurs in some other religions.

In Christianity, heresies range from beliefs that undermine the central Christian doctrines of the Trinity, the Incarnation of Jesus, and Salvation by divine grace.
