 The Principles of Theology - Article 8

by W.H.Griffith Thomas

ARTICLE 8

<< The Creeds

Part 2. The Acceptance of The Creeds

The wording of the Article is important. These confessions of our faith “ought thoroughly to be received and believed.” The Latin equivalent of “thoroughly” is omnino, “altogether,” emphasising very much more than mere intellectual credence. While the form of the Creeds is not strictly Scriptural and Apostolic, the contents are considered to be so, and on this account they call for thoroughness of acceptance. It is important to see from this where the Church of England stands in regard to the fundamental truths expressed in these formularies. Nothing could be clearer than this statement in committing the Church of England to a thorough belief in the verities set forth in the Creeds.
