"...doctrine of the Nicolaitans..." (Revelation 2:6)

  • Nicolaus, an early Christian Gnostic, taught that what one did in the flesh did not matter, since they only thing that counted in eternity was the spirit. Today, this doctrine largely consists of the belief that the gospel of Christ has made the law of God of no effect, and that by "believing" we are released from the necessity of being doers of the Word. This is the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which Christ so unsparingly condemned. (Revelation 2:6). (KC 48)
