LitBit Commentary – Timothy Radcliffe on the Creeds

LitBits Logo - 2

“The purpose of the dogmas of the Church is not to shut down further discussion.  Quite the opposite: they evolved in opposition to heresies which did just that, wrapping up the truths of our faith in narrow theological positions which betrayed the mystery.  …dogmas can be treated as idols, which halt our search for God, but properly understood they are icons which invite us to carry on our pilgrimage towards the mystery, pushing us beyond too easy answers.” Timothy Radcliffe, Why Go to Church? p.67
