Orthodox Creeds

Hi I____,

It is good to hear from you. Both of those creeds, the apostle’s creed and the Nicene Creed as well as the creeds of most Christian churches, all make mention of the holy spirit as a person. This simply serves to demonstrate that the apostasy of the Christian church was completed as the apostle Paul had prophesied, before the death of the apostles.

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Here are a few of those grievous wolves, and here is the extent of that apostasy:

2Ti 1:15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

“All they which are in Asia” included the seven churches of Rev 2-3. They all turn against God’s own apostle while he was still alive. Here is a verse which demonstrates the extent of the power of the apostates in the church while the apostle John was still alive.

3Jn 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
3Jn 1:10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

The Christian church had become the synagogue of Satan while the apostles were still alive! Those creeds just serve to demonstrate that fact. It would be good to write an essay on that subject, and if the Lord wills I will do so, but don’t hold you breath, because at this time it is all I can do just to answer all the letters I receive and keep up with studies for the Revelation series.
Any church that has a ‘creed’ or a ‘statement of beliefs’ is a false church which is a daughter of the great harlot. We know that is so because of this verse of scripture:

Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

All that is in Adam is in my own flesh and the flesh of every human being.

Rom 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but [ how] to perform that which is good I find not.

But when Christ comes and takes up His abode in any of us, then we begin to be converted, and become “as He is in this world”.

1Jn 4:17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

In Christ’s own words, we become Him.

Mat 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Act 22:8 And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

Now since Christ is the Word Of God, and is God in the same sense that we are “Jesus of Nazareth”…

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

… the only “creed” that any Christian can profess is to hold up the entire Bible. Anything less is a sin.

Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [ from] the things which are written in this book.

If all of mankind is to “live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God”, why would we claim to believe in anything less than every word?

God bless you in His service.
Your brother in Christ.
