I’ve already admitted to being a Jimmy Akin fanboy, but his new podcasts is just so full of awesome sauce.
Over the years I have done a fair amount of coverage on the women’s ordination movement and one question I had was did support of women’s ordination technically constitute heresy. From the little research I did I could not definitively say yeah or nay, but leaned towards nay.
Jimmy goes through the technical issues which are many. The following are his show notes for the documents he referenced. This is a very good look at the subject of what heresy is and what would formally constitute heresy.
