Checklist of heresies condemned by the Catholic Church
Eastern Orthodoxy’s seven councils* in Penny Catechism form. From Taylor Marshall.

The flash-point of all heresy (Christians in error) and apostasy (leaving Christianity) is the question of just how God and matter/creation are related, which can be broken down into three parts: who Jesus was (nearly all of the issues in this checklist), what the Eucharist is (which often but not always distinguishes Catholics from Protestants; belief in an infallible church is the tie-breaker) and the only one of these that secular people now care about, sex (homosexuality, contraception and abortion), their big non serviam.

*Archimandrite Serge (Keleher) and others say they actually consider nine to teach infallible doctrine.
