We are studying the Apostles Creed in Sunday School. The question was asked – can you be a Christian and not affirm the Apostles Creed? Also – can you minimally affirm the Apostles Creed and be a called a Christian or do you also have to affirm a fuller set of doctrines (i.e. justification by grace alone, through faith or the Westminster Standards)?
I don’t think the difficulty lies in defining orthodoxy, but the question is basic orthodox belief sufficient? Is Peter’s confession that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God enough to be called a follower of Christ?
On both these tests, Barack Obama fails – but that’s not my real question.
