Docetism 

Any extreme emphasis on the divinity of Christ at the expense of his humanity has docetic implications. Docetism continues to be a temptation to those who idealize the figure of Jesus. It was found in Gnosticism, and it has reappeared from time to time in the history of the church. See Chalcedonian Definition; see Eutychianism; see Gnosticism.
