concerning the topic, and also works by historical & religious scholars to put it in proper understanding.
Apollo, the question that I have is, what makes those articles credible? The fact that you or anyone embraces them or the Bible does not make it right. The reason why I believe that the Bible is COMPLETELY 100% accurate is because I believe that GOD is 100% COMPLETELY Sovereign. The Nicene Creed took place because God allowed it to because of His gracious nature. The same gracious nature that give you and I breath each day. So He (GOD) extends love, mercy, and grace everyday because HE is completely sovereign over the entire universe. Why? Because He created it. He spoke it into existence. If you believe at all in the God of the Bible then it within it's entirety, It requires belief of it's sole authority, being completely infallible. Without this belief you do not believe in the God of the Bible.
