Profession of faith

 "God is the first source of joy and hope for a man"
Jean Paul II
Next day after visiting Auschwitz the Pope has started his day asking for a prayer for himself. ”Lord wants from us to fell his mercy. Lord wants, for us to not go away from Christ. Event, when we think, that because of our sins, we are the worst” - he has said to the gathered people.

Yesterday, he has made the Lord truly angry on him, after the Lord listened to his teaching in which he painted the God, as some invisible power residing far from the planet Earth. A prophetic vision that can become reality soon

The Lord is concrete man and the Nicene Creed that most of the Christians knows and even sometimes remember in full is there to remind it to the everybody that falls to the idolatry.
This creed that has been written in Nicaea in 325 and amendment by the Constantinople in 381 shall be a cornerstone for all Christian faiths. However, it is not so and as Francis showed even if it is, sometimes we are forgetting about it.

The Eastern Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church use it in their liturgy. It is also used by the Anglican Communion and many Protestant denominations but does the faithful and pastors really understand its fundamental meaning?

The example of Francis teaching on the God, even it the Lord is touchy on it, shall be a warning to the mankind. The decision on the future of the Lord and this planet is nearing and it shall be a time of deep reflection. Especially during the visit to the Lord land.

The Nicene Cree is a part of profession of faith required by those that undertaken important function in the Catholic Church but still they teach the masses not about the living God but about some invisible power residing in the heaven. It is maybe a deepest sin of not only of the Catholic Church. Something that not only Jews must resist.

 "God as conceived by Judaism is not only the First Cause, the Creative Power, and the World Reason, but also the living and loving Father of Men. He is not only cosmic but also personal....Jewish monotheism thinks of God in terms of definite character or personality, while pantheism is content with a view of God as impersonal." - Rabbi Samuel S. Cohon.
