Sivu 347 - We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of all things, visible and invisible: And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten of the Father, only begotten, that is, of the substance of the Father; God of God; Light of light; very God of very God; begotten, not made; being of one substance with the Father...
Sivu 292 - For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men ? for if I yet pleased men. I should not be the servant of Christ.
Sivu 167 - And in the name of Jesus Christ, who was crucified under Pontius Pilate, and in the name of the Holy Ghost, who through the prophets foretold all things about Jesus, he who is illuminated is washed.
Sivu 164 - And on the day called Sunday, there is an assembling together of all who dwell in the cities and country ; and the Memoirs of the Apostles and the writings of the Prophets are read as long as circumstances permit.
Sivu 499 - The Christian religion was in this century diffused beyond its former limits, both in the eastern and western countries. In the East, the Nestorians, with incredible industry and perseverance, laboured to propagate it from Persia, Syria, and India, among the barbarous and savage nations inhabiting the deserts and the remotest shores of Asia ; and that their zeal was not inefficient appears from numerous proofs still existing.
Sivu 347 - But those who say that there was a time when he was not, and that he was not before he was begotten, and that he was made out of nothing, or affirm that he is of any other substance or essence, or that the Son of God is created, and mutable or changeable, the catholic church doth pronounce accursed.
Sivu 83 - Eph. iv, 11.) The functions of these men are limited too much by those, who make it to have been their sole business to expound the Old Testament Scriptures, and especially the prophetic books. Whoever professed to be such a herald of God, was allowed publicly to address the people; but there were present among the hearers divinely constituted judges, who could, by infallible criteria, discriminate between true and false prophets. The order of prophets ceased, when the necessity for them was past.
Sivu 86 - For though the churches which were founded by the apostles themselves, frequently had the honour shown them to be consulted in difficult and doubtful cases ; yet they had no judicial authority, no control, no power of giving laws. On the contrary, it is clear as the noonday, that all Christian churches had equal rights, and were in all respects on a footing of equality.
Sivu 347 - Who because of us men and because of our salvation came down and became incarnate, becoming man, suffered and rose again on the third day, ascended to the heavens, and will come to judge the living and the dead; And in the Holy Spirit. But as for those who say, There was when He was not...
Sivu 163 - A large pait, therefore, of the Christian observances and institutions, even in this century, had the aspect of the pagan mysteries. § 6. Fifthly, many ceremonies took their rise from the custom of the Egyptians and of almost all the eastern nations, of conveying instruction by images, actions, and sensible signs and emblems. The Christian doctors, therefore, thought it would be advantageous to the cause of Christianity, to place the...
