I thought a point from another thread deserved it's own. This was said in that thread... I personally researched this topic a number of years ago and recall the heretical nature of this doctrine, it's ties to eastern orthodox mysticism and the many horrendous implications that come from it. Here are 4 from http://kenosis.info/index.shtml 1. They destroy the integrity of the atonement 2. They distort the Christian view of the incarnation. 3. They deny the immutability of God 4. They undermine the monotheistic distinctive of the Christian faith. Orthodox or heresy? Do you hold to it or not...and why and why not?
