The Nicene Creed (7:32): The Nicene Creed is one of the most famous and influential creeds in the history of the church, because it settled the question of how Christians can worship one God and also claim that this God is three persons.

Know the Heretics (6:46): There is a lot of talk about heresy these days. The frequency and volume of accusations suggest that some Christians have lost a sense of the gravity of the word.

What’s needed is a strong dose of humility and restraint, and also a clear and informed definition of orthodoxy and heresy.
