“HE is Risen!” (Luke 24: 6) Happy Resurrection Day!

April 16, 2017

“For indeed Christ our Passover, was sacrificed for us, Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” (St. Paul, 1 Cor. 5: 7-8, NKJV)

‘Grant to us, O Lord, we beseech Thee, that as we celebrate the mysteries of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus, so at His coming we may be enabled to rejoice with all His Saints ; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.’

*This was sent to me early this A.M. by someone, and I pass it along to all of You as well!  Yes, as a classic Anglican Christian I am something of a Creedal Christian….

PS.. Let me quite recommend the now classic book by a grand old Anglican, J.N.D. Kelly: Early Christian Creeds.

  1. And btw, Martin Luther was surely a Nicene Creed Christian! Sadly Calvin, not so much, but he did read many of the Creeds, see too Calvin’s Catechism (Geneva, 1541). Yes, really both of these Reformers were men after the recovery of the catechetical teaching of the ancient Church Catholic, but always seeking the biblical reality. But of course the true Church is always a Pilgrim Body and not infallible! The only infallibility is in the Word and Revelation of God In Christ!

    • This quote by John Frame is well worth the read, and I would agree with it also, and it does not really diminish the proper and historical aspect of the Christian Creeds, but puts them in context, especially for us who believe in the Reformation & the Reformed nature of the true Church Catholic!

      “Technical theology does not represent anything deeper or more authoritative than the biblical canon itself. On the contrary, technical theology always sacrifices some biblical meaning to make some biblical points more vivid to the reader. That sacrifice is not wrong. We must sacrifice something in our teaching, since we cannot say everything at once. But we must never assume that a theological system will teach us anything more than Scripture itself. Theology is application, not discovery of some new teaching.” – John Frame, Scripture & Theology (Quote from the book: Doctrine of the Knowledge of God, P&R, 1987)
