As Iron Sharpens Iron

An ongoing and online discussion between: an Orthodox informed Ecumaniac without a denominational home, an ordained Baptist youth pastor with an open mind, a Calvinist worship leader/seminarian with a staggering vocabulary and ability to make a point, and a cradle Catholic with a love/hate relationship to Rome.

Points of Agreement

First of all, Blessed Feast of St. Martin of Tours!!

I think that we can both say we agree in the basic points of the Apostle's, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds.

- A Triune God of three persons that are one
- God the Father who created all of nothing
- Jesus Christ, the Word made incarnate of the Virgin Mary, fully divine and earthly, who died on the cross and rose on the third day, ascended to heaven and who will return.
- The Holy Spirit, (we'll leave out the filioque for now) that inspires and leads the Church and God's people through all ages
- The unified (in some way) Church or Body of Christ
- One baptism for the remission of sins
- Forgiveness of sins
- Resurrection of the dead
- Everlasting life

Any other points of agreement of which you can think?
