Calling Christians Worldwide to Return to the Creed of Jesus

Critique of the Historical Godhead  [48 pages]
by K. Michael Errington rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)

Many consider the configuration of the Trinity to have occurred in the Apostolic Age despite the word having never occurred inside the scriptures, much less any basic outline articulated by any of its authors. What is compelling is that any church historian with an ounce of integrity will recognize the basic configuration of the Central Doctrine to have developed over the course of centuries through ecumenical councils. More profound is the idea that eternal salvation rests on belief in this mysterious formula. The aim here is reduce the mysteriousness of the Central Doctrine’s development by uncovering decisions made by these ecumenical councils. History has a story to tell and if we look close enough more wonder should follow. There were 178 ecumenical councils between 263 and 431 A.D., yet the Catholic Church recognizes only 3 of these. The intention of this paper is to identify the historical development of the Central Doctrine and pinpoint the work that was overlooked at the Reformation.

Logos: What is the "Word"?
by Jim Rankin [31:24]
rated at 1.6 (out of 6 votes)

Often in our Bible study it's important to fully study out the meaning and interpretation of a passage to better understand the writer's intention. And, of course, English Bibles are a translation, not the original text. When we examine the original languages, we might be surprised to learn how one little "word" could be translated so many ways.
