Councils Ecumenical and Otherwise

Hello,

Look, you might think it's all well and good to say that sometimes we can include it, and sometimes we don't have to, but that misses the mindset of the entire Eastern Church, as well as that of the Ecumenical Councils which collected and affirmed the Creed - the only things to be added are those which are necessary to the faith that can not be omitted; this is why the Synods directed that the Creed not be changed after the Second Ecumenical Council.

Do you think that if it isn't explicit in the Creed that one need not believe it?

Where did the Fathers of the Second Ecumenical Council say - Absolutely no one may alter this Creed (Nicene-Constantinopolitian Creed) nor does anyone have such authority, never ever in a billion years for whatever reason. ?

This topic has been split again to create the new thread "Did Rome Accept the Council of 879-80 as Ecumenical?"

Through the intercession of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, may Jesus Christ bless you abundantly.

Pray that we may be one, as Christ and His Father are one. (John 17:20ff)
