The Creedal Imperative: “No Creed but the Bible”

  1. For almost two years now, my wife and I have been going through the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith, chapter by chapter, for our devotions together. We are getting close to finishing. I have read the Confession countless times, but Janna has not.We are both learning so much together as we go through this together. I would very strongly urge anyone to do this, utilizing the scripture references as you go through it. If you do not have a copy of the 1689 London Baptist Confession, you can obtain a paperback, free of charge, from Chapel Library at chapel@mountzion.org

  2. The folly of the statement “no creed but the Bible” is that this statement itself is an expression of a creed – a very short one to be sure, but nonetheless an authoritative declaration of belief – which after all, is the definition of a creed. The statement itself is a self contradiction of what it asserts, and therefore it is invalid.

    Everyone has a creed. The only question is, is it short or long, is it spoken or written, is it clear or vague?

    Any cultist would affirm that his creed is the Bible. Therefore the statement “no creed but the Bible” means nothing. The real question is this: What do you think the Bible teaches?

  3. You said it very well, Pastor!
