I get a wry kick out of people who say “I have no creed but the Bible!”
Let’s look at the statement logically.
1) The Creeds = the orthodox interpretation of the Bible
2) When someone says “nothing but the Bible” in this way, what they mean is “nothing but [my interpretation of] the Bible”.
Thus, what this person is really saying is: “my personal, private interpretation is more accurate and trustworthy than the views of the orthodox Christian Church”.
Am I starting to sound like a Roman Catholic or what? 😉
