What is the Greek word that starts with a that means nonessential points of faith? It is contrasted with essential dogma, and refers to areas of disagreement which are not critical for Christian faith.

I keep wanting to say anaphora, which is obviously incorrect, but I imagine it sounds something like that.

    It's not a translation request. It is a question asking for the word that was taken up into historical Christian theology to designate a particular theological concept. – zippy2006 Nov 3 '19 at 16:57
  • @Kris You ought to elaborate on your comment in a formal answer. – zippy2006 Nov 3 '19 at 16:57
  • Αδιάφορα (adiaphora (plural)). See also “theologoumena.” – Dan Nov 3 '19 at 20:55
