Classified in Letters from the Universal House of Justice
Abstract Arius was an early Christian theologian whose rejection of the Trinity, Abdu'l-Bahá said, destroyed the unity of the Church.
Notes Letter about a Christian theologian who lived about 400 C.E. and who emphasized that Jesus Christ was subordinate to God the Father. His approach discarded the trinity (where Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all equal) but in the process he also destroyed the divinity of Christ. The memo consists of comments by `Abdu'l-Bahá about Arius's theology but, more importantly, his destruction of the unity of the church. Transmitted by email, via recipient.
