1 Please note that as we now move through the paragraphs of the creed, we will be noting essential points about the creeds themselves, but not necessarily exploring every detail of doctrinal discussions on the topics they contain. There is so much to say about, for example, “God”, that there will have to be a separate series!

2  Apostles’ Creed

3  Nicene Creed

4  School of Faith article D2

5  Belief in ONE God

6  Belief in MANY Gods

7  St Paul was careful about this – see 1 Corinthians 8:1-6

8  But have another look at the Athanasian Creed and you will find it is not only explicit on the matter, but repetitive!

9  If that were to mean God could make a square circle, or undermine God’s own laws of physics, or even commit suicide, what a nonsense that would make of God – and of our language as a means of describing God!

10  There will, as mentioned before, be a deeper discussion of these ideas when we do a series of articles specifically on God
