    when the Arian controversy was raging in the early Church and often the voice of Athanasius, who advocated for the position that Christ was fully man as well as fully God was not only in the minority but opposed by imperial force.  He was driven into exile more than once.  Yet eventually, for better or worse, his position prevailed.  The phrase used was Athanasius contra mundum -  Athanasius against the world.  

    If we believe the position is wrong, are not we obligated to oppose it?

    "We didn't set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how other people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people's hearts." - Pema Chodron
