Major Sect: Early Century Sects

    Founded in the year 75 by Cerinthus

It ended 1819 years ago (125 years after it started).

It has been said the John the Apostle wrote his gospel to refute the errors of this sect regarding the divinity of Jesus Christ. This sect denied God created the world, held the law of Moses as necessary for salvation, looked forward to a earthly kingdom established by Christ where sensual pleasures could be enjoyed, and denied the divinity of Christ.
