A Creed

A Creed

            What of the peasant Spiridion, who, when Eulogius, was pouring along a train of impalpable argument and slippery speech, sprang up, exclaiming, “Hear me, philosopher: Christ and his apostles left us not a system of logic, nor a vain deceit, but a naked Truth, to be guarded by faith; there is one God, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.  He made all things by the word of His power; and by the holiness of His Holy Spirit, this Word we call the Son of God.  He took compassion on man in their wanderings; He was born of a woman, conversed with men and died for them, and He will come again to judge everyone for the things he has done in this life.  These things we believe without curious inquiry; cease from your vain labour as to the manner in which these thing may or may not be. Dost thou believe these things?”
That broad creed of the peasant has stamped itself upon the Church ever since.

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
