Creed, Part One: More Than Words
- Monday, July 19, 2004
What Does It Say, What Does it Mean, What Does it Mean to Me?
The Nicene Creed was not the only creed of the two to meet with opposition. When the Apostles' Creed was drawn up, the chief enemy was Gnosticism, which denied that Jesus was truly Man; and the emphases of the Apostles' Creed reflect a concern with repudiating this error.
I believe, and I hope you'll believe with me, that our faith should not be built on words recited without thought, but that we should know and understand and truly believe the words we speak.
What do they say?
What do they mean?
What do they mean to me?
Over the next few weeks and months, we'll study what these two creeds state, what they mean, and - most importantly, I believe - what they mean to you and me. Join me, won't you?
