A quick quiz: Which one of the following statements is most essentially de fide (of the essence of the Christian faith)?
1. There is one God, in three persons (in human language most frequently designated Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).
2. God the Son (or the Word, Greek Logos) became incarnate (became flesh) in Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah or Christ.
3. Human beings are saved (restored to fullness of life eternally) by God's grace through the Holy Spirit, and not by any action of our own.
4. God hates fags.
The correct answer for the "orthodox" folks at GAFCON is, of course, No. 4.
