Nicene Creed Hypocrisy

Do a sentence diagram (a lost skill that they no longer make anyone learn!) the Creed and whether the second and 3rd I believe's are written out or not, they refer back to the first I believe.

There is thus no change in meaning.


Adding the filoque changes the meaning of that portion of the Creed.


You are arguing a grammatical phraseology difference. The Filoque is not a grammatical structure issue.



That depends on who you ask. 

You might be unaware of the fact that DeniseDenise is a qualified linguist.

She could have created a new language, that wouldn't change anything.

Have you even read, let alone comprehended, what she wrote?  ???

I said I was done.  I have learned what I needed to know.  Thank you.

Then, please, enlighten us with what you have learned.

What part of "I am done here" confused you?

Actually.....he is right..

all he intends on doing is warping things to match his already warped view of things......


pointless to argue and or give him any more wire to curve around and around to make what he -already- had decided things meant....

So very glad you have decided that Orthodoxy is full of it, K.....should be honest and upfront about it and maybe quit picking fights here just to justify  yourself....;)
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

Orthodoxy isn't what's full of "it."

I made a simple, polite request. Is answering that request too difficult for you?
Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

One more time, for you LBK.  I don't care what you guys think or say about this.  I learned what I needed to learn from this and many other exchanges.  I am good, I have no desire or need to entertain you or anyone else with your childish antics.  I am done here.  If you don't understand that, perhaps DeniseDenise can assist you.  Enjoy the flip flops, though I prefer them on the beach.

Yes, depending on whether they speak Greek or not.

Not really, but I am done debating.  I have figured it out.

One can hardly call such torturously obscure and insubstantial prattle by the name debate. It would be an insult against common decency.
Be comforted, and have faith, O Israel, for your God is infinitely simple and one, composed of no parts.

True, but that is what passes for 'debate' in modern America at least. Just listen to sportstalk  or political talk radio and you will get endless hours of such piffle.

Not to mention the internet and its plethora of options for filling, but non-substantial words.
