“Listen, philosopher, to what I tell you. We believe that with His Word and Spirit, Almighty God created the heavens and the earth, man, and the entire visible and invisible world out of nothing. The Word is the Son of God, who came down to earth on account of our sins, was born of the Virgin, lived among people, suffered, died for our salvation, and then was resurrected, having atoned for original sin by His passion, and with Himself resurrected the human race. We believe that He is of One Essence with, and is equal in honor to, the Father, and we believe this without any evil fabrication, for this mystery is beyond comprehension to human reason.”
