Against Creeds

You can figure out an appropriate application and "fit" for the following comment. I'm sure that one will emerge quite soon.

The quote is from Samuel Miller, one of the early professors at Princeton Theological Seminary:

"Whenever a group of men begin to slide, with respect to orthodoxy, they generally attempted to break, if not conceal, their fall, by declaiming against creeds and confessions."

Who in their right mind could be against creeds and confessions?

To confess the faith is the natural outworking of the Christian mind, heart and will.

But perhaps that is the point. A strong aversion shows quite a different mind to be at work.
