I won't argue, because I don't completely endorse the ideas I
mentioned, or very well educated about this. I especially agree with
"there's always room for one more".
Sorry I offended anyone. I certainly did NOT mean to dismiss anyone's
beliefs. I was only trying to talk about it at the Institutional level
of Doctrine manipulation, and not what goes on in each believer's
heart and soul.
My point was that something as seemingly inoffensive as a change of a
couple of words in the creed can have disastrous affects. It can be,
and seems to be, a big deal.
