“There is another side to this picture, however, for while the Nicene Creed expresses what we are obliged to acknowledge within the general framework of the Church’s commitment to the reality of God’s self revelation in Jesus Christ, it is all prefaced by We believe (πιστεύομεν). That is to say, everything that is affirmed in the Creed falls within the compass of faith pivoting upon the objective reality of God who infinitely transcends all that we can think or say about him.“
41. Athanasius Con Ar., 4.12 ‘Through the Son is given what is given; and there is nothing the operates through the Son; for this grace is secure to him receives it.’
42. Gal. 1.9 As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!
