    It makes sense to put articles related to the Godhead first. They come down on the western side of the filioque like Anglicans do, emphasizing the Athanasian Creed as Anglicans do. The part about the Prince’s role in calling councils is bizaar, IMO in light of rge American revolution unless ‘prince’ refers to something I am not familiar with like a church official.

    I disagee that one must exalled by the confregation to preach publically or to administer sacraments. Romanish thinking, IMO, and even the RCC probably recognizes some as saints who taught publically vefore veing ordained as elders. I believe that was the case with Origen.

    Romans 12 tells us the one gifted to prophesy should prophesy according to the proportion of faith, teach should teach, the one gifted to exhort should teach. Paul wrote ‘Every one of you hath a…doctrine. Let all thing be done unto edifying.’

    When Peter stood up to preach his first public sermon he had no articles of “religion” but this:
    “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the foregiveness of your sins.
    And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.The promise is for you and your children and all who are far off..for all whom the Lord will call”
    3000 souls responded to then a few days later another 5000…
    Wherever religion is bondage is and wherever salvation.is liberty is.
    By the way Troy is there a difference between religion and salvation?
    Lest I’m misguided are there any articles of salvation?
