Two Thousand Years of Deception & Error, Part 3A Council of Chalcedon

Council of Chalcedon Creed 451 A. D.

The Council of Chalcedon established that Jesus “…is perfect both in deity and in humanness…”

Although the deity of Jesus was strongly established at the council, the humanity of Jesus was downplayed, thus creating the basis for two major errors.

One error allowed for a belief system of God in only two persons. It was thought that Jesus, because He was divine, healed the sick, cast out evil spirits, and raised people from the dead, in His own power; NOTin the power of the Holy Spirit as the Bible indicates.

According to The BOOK

“And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness.”—Luke 4:1

“Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.”—John 8:28

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”—Acts 10:38

The concentration on Jesus’ divinity, while undermining his fully human nature, led to another error. The reasoning was that Jesus is God, and man is separated from God by sin, so Jesus can’t be our mediator, we need another Redeemer. This opened the way for the unbiblical worship of Mary.

According to The BOOK

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”—1 Timothy 2:5

And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.“—Luke 1:46, 47

“And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”
—Hebrews 12:24
