The YouTube video titled “The Truth About The Council of Nicaea” on the channel “Inspiring Philosophy” debunks common misconceptions about the Council of Nicaea. The video explains that before the council, there were competing views of Christ, and Emperor Constantine called the council to settle disputes between Christians and Arius, who denied the divinity of Christ.

The council was not about creating Christianity. Instead, it reaffirmed the longstanding Orthodox belief in the divinity of Christ, which had been under attack by Arians. The video also dispels the myth that the council used political power to eradicate competing sects, as it was the Arians who gained political power and attempted to suppress Orthodoxy. Ultimately, Arianism waned, and Christianity persisted and grew strong. The video challenges the false narrative that the Council of Nicaea created Christianity, showing that historical evidence does not support this claim.
