The Guardrail of the Creeds

“While never rising to the same authority as sacred Scripture (which alone is the word of God), the ancient creeds and confessions of the Church have served the people of God through the ages as concise and precise summaries of what the Bible teaches on very vital matters. These include, amongst others, the doctrine of God, the person and work of Christ, how a man is justified in God’s sight as well as the doctrine of last things (eschatology). On today’s Dividing Line, guest host John Samson teaches on the practical value of the ancient Creeds and Confessions of the Church.”

One thought on “The Guardrail of the Creeds

  1. The Jesus of the bible, the real Jesus, and the proper understanding of Him is guaranteed to the Elect. We all start off in the wrong places, holding varying degrees of bad theology, but it’s His promise that if we are truly His, which is God’s decision, not ours, we’ll get there as we are being conformed to the image of Christ and He who he who began a good work in us will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. The primary teaching tool used by the Holy Spirit is the bible. The word of God has power because it’s the channel through which God directs his power toward Mankind. Some of my favorite creedal writings are written by Paul and Peter.
