The Council Day 1

I agree with the creedal statement that was written to describe the nature of God. I worked very hard with Arius and Eusebius of Caesarea to compose a creed that everyone could agree on. I am very pleased that the council accepted the first paragraph of the creed we proposed with a few alterations. I do not feel that the alterations that were made removed any details about the nature of God that I wanted to be expressed in the creed. There are fundamental characteristics that people should know about God to properly understand who He is and why we serve Him. The most important thing that people should know about the God we serve is that He is the only true God. Then in order to understand who God really is and why we need him in our lives it is important to know that He is the only being who is everlasting, unbegun, true, immortal, wise, good, sovereign; Judge, Governor, and Providence of all, unalterable, unchangeable and indivisible.
