If you’re a Christian is there such a thing as heresy or is that a relic of the past?

Does it matter what we believe about Christ Jesus?

“Heresy is the rejection of established beliefs of a religious body, or adherence to “other beliefs.” The word “heresy” comes from the Greek word hairesis or choice. The Greek word is a neutral term.

A number of Christian beliefs were declared heresy in the early centuries of the church. Some beliefs declared heresy (Monophysitism, Monothelitism, Nestorianism) are still maintained by Christian churches today, the largest being the Coptic Church. Additionally the Roman Catholic Council of Trent declared Protestantism heresy (a council’s rulings that Protestants obviously do not accept). ”
