Kurosaki: beyond creeds

Tuesday, February 19, 2019
    As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.
    —1 John 2:27 (NIV)
    Faith is life in Jesus Christ, and a life can never be confined within certain systems or creeds. Therefore creeds are not the end or object of faith in themselves, but expressions of our fellowship with Christ, and must not be mistaken for the object or center of our faith. Obviously the fullness of the living Christ cannot be held within the narrow limits of written creeds.
    ... Kokichi Kurosaki (1886-1970), One Body in Christ, Kobe, Japan: Eternal Life Press, 1954, ch. 2 (see the book)
    See also Mark 7:6-8; John 5:39-40; Acts 10:47-48; 2 Cor. 10:5; Col. 2:8; 1 Tim. 1:3-4; 4:7; 6:20-21; 2 Tim. 2:16-18; 1 John 2:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I acknowledge Your continual presence.
