The Heresy of Socinianism
Socinianism is yet another heresy relating to the nature of God. It relates to the ancient Arian heresy in that it denies the divinity of Christ by confusing the simplicity of God. By denying the deity of Christ it by implication denies His eternality, His incarnation, and by extension the substitutionary view of the Atonement. Since He was not divine His sacrifice was not efficacious for fallen man and could not redeem them from the wrath of God.
