Dear Friend:

   Many continue to ask the question: "Who wrote the Apostles' Creed and where can I find it in the Bible?"

   The Apostles' Creed was not written by the apostles and is not part of the Bible. It is a mixture or truth and error and is absolutely uninspired. It is one of many religious frauds and was composed in its final form in the fifth century after Christ. "The Apostles' Creed is not their (the apostles') own making..." admits Smith's Bible Dictionary.

   "The creed, as it stands in its present form, could not be composed in any manner as it is pretended, by the Apostles. The silence of the Acts of the Apostles about any such composition is (an) evidence against it" is the testimony of Bishop Joseph Bingham in his book Antiquities of the Christian Church.

   Bingham also tells us that it was originally called the "Roman Creed" as evidenced by the phrase, "I believe in the Holy Ghost, THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH." It was drawn up by the members of that Church after the pagan doctrines and customs of the Western Roman Empire Easter, Christmas, Sunday had been accepted as "Christian" traditions. It, therefore, became necessary to imply apostolic approval to the new doctrine of the church! This creed was fraudulently written and entitled the "Apostles' Creed" for such a purpose.
