On Singing Carefully

Has your faith found a resting-place not in device or creed?

Have you ever considered what sort of resting-place you would have, had those devices and/or creeds not been written?

Have you ever heard of Arianism? Nestorianism? Patripassionism? Pelagianism? These nouns, and others like them, are why creeds were written. You can read about them in a good book about Church History. After such reading, you will be much better informed as to whether your faith would do well to rest upon anything not safeguarded by devices and creeds.

In singing pious-sounding foolishness, we may dismiss Gods’ providence in history–to our own peril.
