.... A lot of perceptions of the Catholic Church are just wrong I thought I knew about" them " also until I converted to Catholicism. Turns out everything I thought I knew well let's just say I was totally wrong. The tradition part was handed down from Jesus and entrusted to Peter. They did not write down everything they did. Every Mass I have been to involves three scripture readings or more. I pray that we all can focus on the love we have for Christ and not be divided by the evil one....

I agree. You can not be a true Christian without believing in the Trinity. Jesus is the divine Son as he claimed and proved this with divine miracles and with his own bodily resurrection. At his baptism the Father spoke and said, "This is my Son with whom I am well pleased." And the Holy Spirit descernded on him in the form of a dove. All 3 persons of the Trinity are there at Jesus' baptism.

Jesus clearly taught a trinitarian God--his Father, himself as the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Daniel, I say these things not to offend but as a matter of education. You are wrong when you say that the Trinity was not discussed until 300 year after the faith began. The ratification of unified belief over a specific doctrine is what happens at councils. The reason they are ratified in this manner is to combat heresy. When the Christian community is in total agreement with each other on a doctrine, then there is no discussion until it is attacked by an outside inquiry concerning the doctrine by a non-believer. Pretty soon the doubt comes to enter the Christian community and then they settle the matter in a council. The fact that a council was called means the there had been much discussion over the issue. In point of fact, there is no doctrine more historically precious to the Church than the Trinity, even in the first 300 years. The Procession of the Spirit, is what you are referring to in regards to your recent post. You don't really understand what the doctrine is about. It was meant simply to show how God works pragmatically. When we are ministered to, is that the Spirit or the Father? The goal was to provide theological clarity through which the doctrine of Soteriology (salvation) could be worked out later. It is not at all a separation of the Godhead but rather an attempt at an explanation for how the Godhead is one in being, three in person. A support for the Trinity. The Trinity is a necessary truth for Christian belief. Christianity centers on the Gospel. Without it there are no Christians. The Gospel requires acceptance of the Deity of Christ. Christ claimed this of himself (John 14:6-9) If The Father is God and Christ is God then there are two gods, add the Spirit and you get three. That is polytheism which is utterly opposed to Christian teaching at any stage in the history of the faith. The way Christian belief is made tenable is to undertand how God and Jesus are one in being and three in person, otherwise Jesus is an impostor. The bottom line is that we cannot undertand the but we can know what the bible says about it. On several occasions it is mentioned (see above reference). Bottom line, the Trinity is not Catholic doctrine, but is a Christian Doctrine. If it is not true then Jesus is a Liar. And as much as being an American may allow you to have any opinion, being a Christian does not allow anyone to disbelieve the Trinity. Otherwise the Gospel is not true and no is a Christian, because there is no such thing.

Wow, I am reading how many people are arguing over this video because it is a Catholic video. What has happen to us all. Instead of uplifting us Christens we chose to pick and pick. Sham on us all and God forgive us for our inconsideration for others and their beliefs. At the end of the day it is all up to God himself to let me into heaven. (The prodigal son) Let us all unite under our one God and know He loves us for our faults as well as the faith in our Churches. We think we need to educate and help others for their wrong church. If the devil keeps us fighting and not united then he keeps us weak. But we must unite and battle the true evil. We are all Children of God.

The so called "trinity" wasn't discussed as a possible doctrine till almost 300 years after the crucifixion of Christ and was not adopted fully till around 385 A.D. In 325 at the Nicean council Emperor Constantine (the one who called the council, as well as preceded over it and had final say over anything introduced) accepted the first incarnation of the trinitarian formula for the Godhead, but it was much different than it is today. He pushed it through because of his pagan roots, and it was more of a tritheistic doctrine where the Father was in charge, then the Son was next in command, and the Holy Spirit was last. In other words, 3 Gods in which the others were subordinate to the Father. I say these things not to offend, but as education since it is historical fact.

Myrtle, you are correct with definition #3. When written, the creed pertained to the whole Christian church at that time. It was a prayer/statement that the Church should be unified and remain as one body.

I looked it up. cath·o·lic [kath-uh-lik, kath-lik] Show IPA adjective 1. broad or wide-ranging in tastes, interests, or the like; having sympathies with all; broad-minded; liberal. 2. universal in extent; involving all; of interest to all. 3. pertaining to the whole Christian body or church.

It was explained to me that catholic (with a lower case c) means world. A capitol c means Roman Catholic.

Kathy, the creed came about in about the 5th century when there was only 1 church. Catholic does not mean Roman Catholic, Catholic in this context, means united, or universal. This creed was set well before the days of the reformation of Martin Luther.

Why did they have to put "the Holy Catholic church" in this wording? It is not in the wording for all other denominations, I was going to re-post until I saw that! Mind you I have nothing against the Catholic church, but I am not a Catholic so it kinda spoiled it for me...

  • 2012-08-04T10:14:50

Did that really say "the Quick and the dead?" Umm I was raised catholic I believe that should be "the living and the dead"...

Editor's Note: For more information about the Creed, including explanations of "he descended into hell" not being included in this video and the word "catholic," please see: http://www.christianity.com/ChurchHistory/11629750/.

Where is "He descended into hell"? If your going to post the Apostle's Creed, then you need to post the whole thing.

I loved this! It was so great, until I saw, very briefly, I had to keep backing it up allot to see if I was reading it right," we believe in the catholic church" I'm not sure what that means in this video.. I really loved the entire video, but I do not believe in the catholic church... at all... I confess my sins to my Father in heaven... my Father in heaven forgives my sins... but other than that little part, I liked the video... :)
